Why You Should Get All–on–4® in Sydney

Sydney is a city at the forefront of new developments and innovations. It’s a busy, fast-paced destination full of opportunities and fresh starts. So it’s a natural fit if you’re undergoing a restorative dental procedure that can give you a new smile in just 24 hours, even if you don’t have a single tooth left. If you’ve been looking into the benefits of All-on-4® treatment recently, there are some compelling reasons to get All-on-4® in Sydney.

All-on-4® is a long-lasting solution for missing or badly damaged teeth. Gaps are common in Australian smiles, with an average of 4.5 missing teeth among Australian adults. Yet, despite how widespread missing teeth are, it’s best to replace them as soon as you can. Just one missing tooth can have an impact on the entire mouth that eventually causes damage to other parts of the body. Eventual consequences can include teeth shifting out of place, an irregular bite, weakened jaw bone, further tooth loss, a gum disease called periodontitis and deadly conditions like endocarditis and cardiovascular disease. The dental/medical connection is well established, as our mouths are entranceways to our respiratory and digestive systems. Leaving one exposed renders the other vulnerable to attack as well.

Restorative dental procedures such as dental implants not only replace your smile but also stop these potential health problems in their tracks. Yet traditional dental implants, while effective, often come with their drawbacks. If your jawbone has insufficient density to support the implants, painful procedures like dental bone grafting can be required, dragging out your healing time.

All-on-4® is a full mouth restoration procedure that takes a unique and more effective approach to dental implants. If you’ve been looking for a long-lasting solution for missing teeth, there’s a high chance All-on-4® in Sydney is right for you.

How All-on-4® Works

All-on-4® is a medically advanced full mouth restoration process that uses four implants – two at the front and two at the back – to support an entire “bridge” or arch of new teeth. This is a departure from the style of traditional dental implants, which support each artificial tooth with its own titanium screw inserted into the jawbone.

One of the biggest benefits of All-on-4® is that you can have a new set of teeth fitted within 24 hours of your surgery, but often immediately afterwards. The procedure avoids the need for dental bone grafts, which gives it a shorter healing time than traditional methods. Fewer implants also mean simpler maintenance and cleaning.

Dr Paulo Malo pioneered All-on-4® in 1998 in partnership with Nobel Biocare. Data collected over the decades has revealed a 98% success rate for the procedure. Next Smile Australia uses Dr Malo’s own treatment process, ‘The Malo Protocol’. This process, which has been shown to be consistently effective, forms the basis of Next Smile Australia’s treatment when you undergo All–on–4®in Sydney.

If you’re suitable for the All-on-4® treatment, Next Smile Australia considers your dental and medical history as we personalise a treatment plan for you. While the only surefire way to determine if All-on-4® is right for you is to arrange a personal consultation with Next Smile Australia, the treatment is suitable for a wide range of patients regardless of age and background. People who have lost all their teeth due to decay, injury or illness are likely candidates. So are people who cannot have their teeth restored by other means.

If approved for All-on-4®, your treatment timeline will include All-on-4®surgery performed according to the Malo Protocol. This is a two-stage treatment process. In stage one, you’ll receive your first set of teeth, a “provisional bridge” left in place for three to six months. As your mouth heals and the dental implants integrate with your jawbone, we’ll prepare your “final bridge”, or new set of teeth. We’ll manufacture these teeth in our in-house dental laboratories using the highest quality of materials created by Nobel Biocare.

Your first set of provisional teeth will often be ready as soon as you wake up from your All-on-4® surgery, but never more than 24 hours after the operation. This means on the day of your treatment, you can step outside and go about your business with a new set of teeth.
