All-on-4 Dental Implants
The revolutionary teeth & denture replacement solution
All-on-4™ Dental Implant treatment is a cost effective, revolutionary technique whereby a whole arch of teeth can in many cases be supported by only 4 implants. This treatment concept can be used in either the upper or lower jaw to support immediate fixed replacement teeth that look, feel and function very similar to natural teeth, in most cases in a little as 1-2 days (Conditions apply). You specialist Team at the Dental Implant Network will be able to advise you on whether the All-on-4™ treatment is suited to your case after your initial examination and assessment appointment.
Our specialist team at the Dental Implant Network & the Institute of Dental Implants & Periodontics, lead by Dr Danesh-Meyer, have placed thousands of dental implants and been providing the All-on-4™ treatment to patients since 2005. The All-on-4™ technique was originally pioneered by Dr Palo Malo at the MALO clinic in Lisbon and has been shown to be a predictable and highly successful treatment for replacing dentures with fixed teeth. Dr Danesh-Meyer, a specialist periodontist/implant surgeon, has been involved in dental implants for over 20 years, during which time he has placed thousands of implants. As such he could see the great potential in the All-on-4™ concept and the benefits it offered patients.
Watch the animation below for a quick summary of the benefits of the All-on-4™ treatment solution.
The All-on-4™ concept is ideally suited to replace a full lower denture. For most patients with full upper and lower denture, it is the lower denture that is most uncomfortable and difficult to eat with. The All-on-4™ treatment provides patients a full fixed (non-removable) bridge on as few as 4 implants in the lower jaw. In many cases the complete treatment can be completed in as little as 1 – 3 days. The All-on-4™ treatment can also be applied to the upper jaw in most cases, however, it is sometimes necessary to place 6 implants in the upper jaw in order to ensure good support and long-term durability of the implant teeth. Our specialist team will be able to advise you on the most appropriate treatment option after your initial examination and assessment appointment.

Most patients with full dentures or those patients with failing crown and bridgework who are about to loose their teeth can benefit dramatically from this revolutionary treatment concept. Even patients that have suffered severe bone loss due to long-standing tooth loss and denture wear or from periodontal disease can benefit from the All-on-4™ treatment. Due to the unique treatment protocol used in the All-on-4™ concept, even those patients who have previously been told, “you don’t have enough bone for dental implants,” may still be able to have implant retained teeth with All-on-4™.
All-on-4™ concept works by taking advantage of the denser bone that often remains in the front part of the jaws. The key to the success of the technique lies with the unique positioning of the two most posterior implants on an angle so as to avoid the nerve canal in the lower jaw and the sinus cavities in the upper jaw. This has the distinct advantage of virtually eliminating the need for costly and time consuming bone grafting, which typically results in more discomfort and prolonged treatment times that may be as long as 12-18 months.
The All-on-4™ treatment can benefit patients of all ages providing you are in good health and it is now possible for patients to replace a full denture with a non-removable fixed set of teeth within as little as 2 days. The All-on-4™ surgical treatment takes place in our state-of-the-art purpose-built surgical facility in Newmarket, Auckland. With the latest dental technology such as in-house cone-beam CT scanning, modern equipment and highly trained staff, the team at the Institute of Dental Implants Surgical Centre can ensure exceptional patient safety and comfort throughout your treatment from start to finish.
The implant bridge is screw-retained on the 4 implants. It can not be removed by the patient.
It's just like having teeth secure in your mouth again.
