All on 4™ Dental Implants
The All on 4™ concept was developed by Professor Paulo Malo in Portugal in the early 90’s. It was developed to offer patients an entire set of new teeth that looked as natural and perfect as possible—while being fixed in place to avoid the need for removable dentures. This revolutionary concept avoids the need for bone grafting which dramatically reduces the treatment time required and therefore costs. Our experienced team at the Malo Clinic Gold Coast can replace your missing teeth, and fast—in as little as 24 to 48 hours.
The Benefits of All-on-4 Include
The All on 4 is a revolutionary treatment with many advantages over traditional dental implants. Patients can benefit from the following:
Success rates are much higher than conventional techniques.
Teeth can be fixed within 24 hours.
Teeth that look and feel like natural teeth.
Cost savings - typically about half the cost of alternative techniques.
Virtually eliminates the need for bone grafting - less invasive procedure
Natural Looking Results With Fewer Implants
With modern surgical techniques and improved dental implant designs, patients can receive fixed full bridges with the All-on-4™ treatment at the Malo Clinic Gold Coast in as little as 2 days.
The technique can be applied to either upper or lower jaw, dependent upon bone volume and density. All-on-4 can be suitable for denture wearers who have lost their teeth sometime in the past.
Four implants are inserted into the jaw to serve as the foundation for the teeth. Sets of teeth will then be added into the implants which will look and act like natural teeth.

Am I Suitable for the All on 4 Treatment?
Obviously, there are some medical conditions that can have an effect on implant healing and we need to know about these as soon as possible, as they can modify your treatment plan. However, there are very few conditions that mean you can't have dental implants.
Examples of medical conditions that may be an issue include, but are not confined to, are:
- I.V bisphosphonates
- Recent heart attack or cardiac surgery – 6 months
- High blood pressure
- Myasthenia gravis
- INR (clotting ratio) > 3.0
When you visit the Malo Clinic Gold Coast, a full medical history will be taken and suitability is assessed. In most cases, if the situation is known about and managed, dental implants will be possible. Age is no barrier!
Things To Consider When Choosing Your Treatment Team
Make sure you consider the following when researching potential teams to assist with your All on 4 treatment:
- Has the person performing the treatment spent time training with the developer of the procedure, or what advanced training have they undertaken?
- Have the implants they are planning to use been developed specifically for this procedure?
- Will they be following the Malo protocol ?
- What sort of warranty will be offered and are they part of a world wide network of clinics where warranty work could be undertaken?
