Dental Implants

Dental Implants Brisbane

We are a leading and trusted dental implants Brisbane clinic with local expertise and professionalism. A dental implant provides a fixed solution for a missing tooth root. Usually made from medical grade titanium, an implant is a “post” which is attached to and integrates with the bone structure of the jaw. If a single tooth has been lost due to an accident, it is highly unlikely that more than one implant will be required. However, if the tooth has been lost due to gum disease, general ill health or substance abuse, there may be the chance of recurring problems with other teeth and a more implants may be necessary.

If multiple teeth are missing, it is important that the gap be closed quickly to prevent surrounding teeth moving and the possible loss of bone in the area. The number of implants required will be decided on a case by case basis.

In some cases, where many teeth have been lost or bone density is poor, the technically advanced All-on-4™ procedure may be advised. Specialist Prosthodontist, Doctor Tony Rotondo has been performing the All on 4 protocol almost from the time of its invention and development by Malo Clinic. Dr Rotondo is one of Australia’s leading practitioners and is a prolific teacher to dentists everywhere. There are few people as qualified in Australia to perform the All on 4 procedure.

All-on-4™ is discussed in more detail on this website on the All-on-4™ page.

Teeth can be lost due to many reasons but there is no reason for you to live your life without teeth. Implants are now commonplace and are the universal answer to complex dental problems. Implants are safe and permanent and have the appearance and functionality of normal healthy teeth. Often, they have a better appearance than your own teeth!

Dental implants have developed into a well-researched and structured procedure and are today considered to be the accepted standard of care for a wide range of oral conditions. Research and development are an essential part of both Rotondo Clinic and the Next Smile group.

Doctor Tony Rotondo regularly conducts information seminars in addition to his courses for dentists, where you can attend free of charge to learn more about implant procedures, especially the All-on-4™ procedure. You may register your interest to attend to one of these seminars on the home page of this website.

What is All-on-4™?

All-on-4™ is a revolutionary approach developed over a decade ago by Paulo Malo. With the All-on-4™ procedure, placing a dental implant can be a quick and minimally invasive procedure. The Implants act as a foundation for the All-on-4™ Bridge, which allows the placement of a fixed set of teeth, similar in almost every way to natural teeth.

This technique stabilizes bone levels, keeping the jaws healthy. By tilting the posterior implant 45°, the All-on-4™ allows even those patients with very little bone to have fixed teeth without need of bone transplant. The result is a fixed (non-removable) natural looking dentition, almost indistinguishable from natural teeth.

Beautiful new teeth in just one visit

For most people, dental implants are the best solution to replace missing teeth. However, patients who lack sufficient bone volume may have been discouraged from having implant surgery performed or told they need to undergo time-consuming, costly and painful bone grafting procedure prior to placing dental implants.

With the All-on-4™ technique, most people can have beautiful teeth in a day, even if you have been told you are not a candidate for dental implants or are lacking enough bone for implants.

What to expect

Placing a dental implant is a quick, minimally invasive procedure. At Malo Clinic an oral surgeon will do a careful initial evaluation to determinate the best treatment plan for your dental condition. The initial evaluation consists of a comprehensive examination and diagnostic imaging. With the help of a specific computer software program, a 3-dimensional image of your jaw is created. “Virtual implants” are placed in the 3D image to ensure accuracy at the time of your surgery. To facilitate the procedure and ensure quality, a trial fixed bridge is manufactured before the surgery.

While you wait for your prosthesis, performed at our lab – one of the best laboratories of fixed prosthesis in Australia, you have at your disposal an individual recovery room with total privacy and comfort. On that same day you will leave our Clinic with new fixed teeth and you will be able to eat, speak and smile with confidence.
