Find Out How All-On-4 Has Changed the Lives of Our Patients!
The All-On-4 dental implant procedure has changed the lives of many patients who came to the Malo Clinic for a dental implant treatment. On this page, you can find our case gallery, which displays some of the results our patients have obtained with the All-On- 4 dental implant treatment. To discover how the All-On-4 dental implants can change your life, please read our additional information below.
Increased Functioning of the Mouth
One of the most evident benefits of All-On-4 dental implants, and dental implants in general, is the effect they have on the functioning of the mouth.
The first problem that can occur with the loss of teeth is a speech problem. The effect of teeth loss on speech does depend on a number of factors. For example, the teeth that will have the biggest impact on your speech are the front teeth, since they play a big role in the articulation of consonant sounds. Without these teeth, your speech is bound to be impacted.
Patients who get new front teeth are more likely to notice the speech benefits of a dental implant treatment. With your new dental implants, it will be easier to pronounce words containing the letters “F” and “V”. Patients will also notice a difference in dento-lingual sounds, which includes “T”, “D” and “TH”.
The All-On-4 treatment can also have an effect on your ability to eat and chew foods. When you are missing certain teeth, you may avoid certain foods because they are too hard or too difficult to chew. People who have dentures to replace their missing teeth can also experience problems, since they feel very self-conscious while eating sticky foods. Since they are in constant fear of losing their dentures, these patients may start to avoid important foods in their diet.
Replacing your dentures, or missing teeth, with dental implants can provide a permanent solution where eating and chewing ability is concerned. Given the fact that the replacement teeth are permanent, there is no chance that the patient will lose their teeth while eating sticky foods. The patients in question will also be able to chew harder foods again.
Better Self-Esteem and Confidence
Having several missing teeth that are clearly visible can have devastating consequences for your self-esteem and confidence. The phenomenon is more common in women than in men, even though many men also suffer from a loss of self-esteem and confidence due to a loss of teeth.
The effect of dental implants on patients with a loss of self-esteem and confidence is astonishing, especially with a treatment such as All-On- 4, where the results of the treatment are immediate. Patients feel less self-conscious leaving their home and have no problems socialising again. Loss of self-esteem and confidence is also linked to the speech problems accompanied by the loss of teeth. Since speech problems are handled with dental implants as well, all three problems are solved with one dental procedure.
A Permanent Solution
One of the biggest benefits for most patients, who are looking to take advantage of a teeth replacement option, is the fact that dental implants are a permanent solution. Not all patients like having dentures, so dental implants can be a better alternative for these patients.
Dental implants are inserted in the jawbone or cheekbone of the patient, depending on the type of procedure needed for your replacement teeth. The replacement teeth are then attached to these dental implants, so the patient will not have to take out these implants or replacement teeth, as they would do with dentures.
Patients with dental implants will be able to tell you that dental implants look and feel like natural teeth nowadays. Instead of having to worry about your dentures, or feeling self-conscious about your missing teeth, dental implants will be the permanent solution you have been looking for.
When you compare normal dental implant procedures with the All-On-4 dental procedure, you will notice that All-On-4 is a lot more affordable. The reason why this procedure is a lot cheaper can be found in the execution of the procedure itself.
All-On-4 is executed by inserting four dental implants in the upper and/or lower jaw. Given the fact that the surgeon only needs four dental implants, the treatment is a lot less expensive and a lot less time consuming. In short, the treatment will be affordable for the majority of Australians.
No Bone Grafting Required
Patients who want to benefit from dental implants, but are lacking the jawbone for the procedure, used to count on bone grafting procedures. However, these bone grafting procedures were lengthy and expensive, which resulted in many patients not being able to afford their dental implants once they had the bone grafting procedures done.
With the All-On-4 treatment, there is no need for bone grafting. This fact makes the treatment more accessible to patients with bad dental health. The treatment can also be combined with additional procedures to provide the patient with good oral health, for example gum replacement procedures.
Better Success Rate
The All-On-4 treatment has a really high success rate, especially when you start comparing this treatment with normal dental implant procedures. With a success rate of 98%, the treatment is unlikely to fail.
Before you undergo a dental implant treatment at the Malo Clinic, we will always evaluate the success rate of the treatment. If there is any reason why the treatment could fail, the Malo Clinic will adjust the treatment and provide you with the highest success rate possible.
Patients with a complex dental implant problem will find that this treatment will be the most suitable for them, especially if a lack of jawbone belongs to the list of problem. The technique ensures maximum stability for the teeth and promotes the fusion of the implants with the jawbone.
Dental implants have evolved as well, this to increase the success rate of treatments. In patients with a lower amount of jawbone, the dental surgeon will use longer dental implants to provide more stability. The dental implants can also be tilted, which makes the teeth feel as natural as possible and will provide a solid foundation of your replacement teeth.
