All-On-4 Aspects



What makes All-on-4 such a revolutionary procedure?

All-on-4 is a fairly new procedure developed and perfected over a decade ago by Dr. Paul Malo and his team of dentists and oral surgeons. Compared to conventional dental treatments that achieve the same result, All-on-4 takes less time, is less invasive and less painful for patients. All-on-4 also allows patients who aren’t considered good candidates for conventional dental implants to get a new set of teeth in the shortest time possible.

What are the different aspects of All-on-4?

All-on-4 gets its name from the four titanium implants that are surgically inserted into the upper and/or lower jaw to support a fixed bridge. It is a full arch replacement that allows patients to get a whole new set of upper and/or lower teeth, which can greatly improve their quality of life and give them back a perfect smile.

The Malo Clinic uses only the best biocompatible materials for this procedure to ensure long-term success and effectiveness.

The titanium dental implants used in the All-on-4 treatment were chosen not only because they are strong enough to last an entire lifetime, but also due to its versatility as far as surgical placement is concerned.  The key to All-on-4 is the angle at which the two posterior implants are inserted into the jaw.  By tilting it up to 45 degrees the implant can be place in areas where there is more bone density to support the bridge.  Titanium implants will also eventually become part of the jaw as new bone growth directly attaches to its surface through a process called osseointegration, which translates to increased mechanical strength and stability.

The ceramic material used for the bridge is extremely strong and can easily match the look of natural teeth.  We also use advanced CAD/CAM technology to model the ceramic bridge to extremely precise measurements.

What are the advantages of the All-on-4 treatment?

Since All-on-4 uses only 4 implants to support the bridge, it is less invasive than conventional dental implants which require more implants to be surgically inserted in the jaw.

When tooth loss occurs due to decay it usually means that the underlying bone and connective tissue supporting the tooth has also been eaten away by bacteria. Bone loss can also occur when teeth that are knocked loose due to external forces and are left untreated.

In most cases, patients with missing teeth will also have suffered enough bone loss in the jaw to make placing traditional dental implants impossible. To solve this, a separate procedure called a bone graft is required. For this procedure, bone tissue from another area or source is placed in the area where bone loss has occurred so that new bone tissue can grow around it. Only when the new bone has formed after several months can a dental implant be placed.

The main advantage of All-on-4, is that it can be performed on patients who have severe bone loss in the jaw without having to undergo a bone graft. With All-on-4, the two posterior implants are placed at an angle in areas of the jaw where there is more bone mass to properly support the bridge. This means you can get your implants and bridge fitted within the span of only a few days, versus several months or up to a year with conventional dental implants.

How can one benefit from All-on-4?

All-on-4 allows you to get a new set of upper and lower teeth in the shortest time possible. It is a permanent replacement that can last you an entire lifetime. It is much more convenient that using dentures which requires a lot of daily care and maintenance.

Getting a whole new set of teeth via the All-on-4 procedure will make a huge improvement in your quality of life, and give you a perfect looking smile. You’ll also be able to bite, chew and speak as well as you did with your natural teeth. It is also a great way to give your self-esteem and confidence a much needed boost.
