The procedure is the innovation of Dr Paulo Malo, a renowned implantologist from Portugal. It has been so successful that it is now carried out to his technique by dental clinics throughout the world.
The procedure replaces all of your teeth. If you have lost most of your teeth you may be a suitable candidate for the All-on-4 providing you are prepared to your remaining teeth extracted.
Even if you have bone loss you may still be suitable for the All-on-4 without requiring a bone graft procedure.

• They look natural• They are secure• A bone graft is not usually required• Teeth extractions, implant placement and attachment of teeth are carried out at the same time, in just one session.• Implants help prevent further deterioration of the jawbone.

Definitely. The procedure takes careful planning, so your dentist will perform diagnostic tests, including CT scans, to check the structures in your mouth and jaw bone. The CT scan is used both for diagnostic purposes, but also it forms the template for your surgery, in that the dentist can see exactly where to place the implants for optimum stability. Prior to surgery, you will also need to have impressions made of your mouth which are sent to a laboratory so they can make your new teeth and have them back with your dentist before your procedure day.
The procedure only takes 2 hours per jaw for the implants and teeth to be placed, and it is carried out under a local anaesthetic or conscious sedation. Afterward, you may have swelling or bruising, but most people experience very little downtime. It is a major procedure, so you should plan to take things slowly and gently.
