What is the All-on-4 treatment?

All-on-4 is a revolutionary new dental procedure that allows you to get a completely new and permanent set of prosthetic teeth within a span of a few days. Its name comes from the fact that it only requires the placement of 4 titanium implants in each jaw to support a new set of teeth.

Compared to conventional total oral rehabilitation methods, All-on-4 takes less time, is less invasive, and is less painful overall for patients, with the same end result. Since All-on-4 is a permanent replacement it will look, feel and chew just like or even better than your real teeth. It will give you back a perfect smile and allow you to talk, bite and chew just like you did with your natural teeth.

How does the All-on-4 concept work?

All-on-4 was developed and perfected by Dr. Paulo Malo and his team of dentists and oral surgeons at the Malo Dental over a decade ago. It is a full arch treatment that replaces all the teeth in the upper and/or lower dental arches with a fixed bridge that is supported by 4 titanium implants.

In most cases, people only start to lose their teeth when the underlying jaw bone and connective tissue gets eaten away by bacteria. When too much bone loss has occurred, there won’t be any place available underneath the missing teeth to surgically insert a dental implant.

In such situations, patients will first have to go through a bone grafting procedure to replace the lost bone. A bone graft will take a couple of months to heal completely, and only then will you be able to get fitted with your replacement teeth.

With All-on-4, bone grafts are no longer necessary. It works around the bone loss problem by tilting the two posterior implants up to 45 degrees so that it can be properly supported by denser bones in the other parts of jaw or even the cheek bone. The remaining two anterior implants are inserted straight similar to a normal dental implant.

This dental implant technique has proven to be very effective for tens of thousands of patients in different parts of the world. Overall, the procedure is less invasive compared to other more conventional methods, and can even be performed using a local anaesthetic. It also can be completed within a span of a few days, which dramatically reduces the wait time for a new set of teeth.

Who needs the All-on-4 procedure?

All-on-4 is the best tooth replacement solution for people who are not considered to be good candidates for regular dental implants. This can happen when there isn’t enough jaw bone left to support an implant, or if you are suffering from a medical condition that will make surgically inserting an implant impossible.

All-on-4 is also a great solution for people who can’t wait several months up to a year to get a new set of teeth. Missing several teeth for long periods can have adverse effects on your quality of life, speech, appearance and overall health, among many other things.

All-on-4 is also ideal for anyone looking for a long-term solution for their dental problems. It is more effective and more convenient than having to deal with dentures for the rest of your life.

 As soon as the All-on-4 titanium implants are surgically inserted into your jaw, you can immediately get a new set of replacement teeth.  With the All-on-4 treatment you will get a fixed bridge created using the latest CAD/CAM technology to ensure a perfect fit and excellent performance that will be similar or even better than your natural teeth.  Your new set of teeth will also be perfectly aligned giving you a great looking smile.  All-on-4 is an excellent option whether you’re missing only a few teeth or all of your teeth.

What to expect from the All-on-4 procedure?

Placing a dental implant is a quick, minimally invasive procedure. At Malo Dental an oral surgeon will do a careful initial evaluation to determinate the best treatment plan for your dental condition. The initial evaluation consists in a comprehensive examination and diagnostic imaging. With the help of a specific computer software program is created a 3 dimensional image of your jaw. “Virtual implants” are placed in the 3D image to ensure accuracy at the time of your surgery. To facilitate the procedure and ensure quality, the fixed bridge is manufactured before the surgery.

While you wait for your prosthesis, performed at our lab – one of the best laboratories of fixed prosthesis in Europe, you have at your disposal an individual recovery room with totally privacy and comfort. On that same day you will leave our Clinic with new fixed teeth and you will be able to eat, speak and smile with confidence.
