If you have lost most or all of your original adult teeth; if you currently wear partial or full removable dentures and are tired of the associated daily struggles, discomforts and expenses; if you have a failing dentition as a result of advanced periodontal (gum) disease; or if you have been told by your dentist that you are not a candidate for dental implants because you have lost too much bone volume in your jaw, then the All-on-4® may very well be the treatment for you. Get the smile you deserve and get back the life you use to enjoy!
What is the All-on-4®?
The All-on-4® is a revolutionary dental implant protocol that has been specifically designed to provide edentulous (not having any original adult teeth) and near-edentulous patients, or those suffering with a failing dentition, with new, non-removable teeth that are virtually indistinguishable from a natural set of teeth. The All-on-4® is the brainchild of Dr. Paulo Malo, the founder and CEO of the world renowned MALO CLINICS, who have been researching and developing new products related to All-on-4® for the past 20 years since its inception. MALO SMILESs’ team of specialists are educational affiliates of MALO CLINIC, helping to teach All-on-4® “the MALO CLINIC Way” to other dental professionals throughout the U.S. They also participate in scientific research along with other MALO CLINIC affiliates and collaborators throughout the world, in an effort to continuously innovate and advance this rapidly growing and very much needed procedure.
The All-on-4® is regarded as a “breakthrough” in the field of dental implantology owing to the unprecedented treatment time of giving people new non-removable teeth in just one visit (in most cases), its ability to treat patients presenting with advanced bone loss in the jaw and its propensity for avoiding the need for bone grafting surgery.

The dental implant technique making new Teeth In A Day™ possible essentially works as is shown in the diagram above. The All-on-4® involves the securing of a customized prosthetic dental bridge to four dental implants, the positioning and angulation of which are strategically determined with the help of sophisticated 3D imaging and software so as to:
- Maximize support for the bridge using what remaining bone volume there is.
- Avoid damaging vital oral structures, such as the sinus cavity and nerve canal.
- Provide patients with new, fixed (non-removable) teeth without the need for bone grafting surgery beforehand.
The implants act as ‘anchors’ for the prosthetic teeth, which, if cared for properly, can last decades without the need for changes to the restoration. The hallmark of the All-on-4® “the MALO CLINIC Way” is that it can almost always be performed in a single appointment, thus allowing our patients to walk out of MALO SMILES on the afternoon of their procedure with a complete set of new teeth! How is this possible?
New Teeth In A Day™
The four dental implants utilized in the All-on-4® technique are strategically placed in such a way so as to reap maximum support from the remaining bone volume. The two posterior implant screws are substantially angulated, which increases the support and stability of the entire dental prosthesis. What this all means is that even patients who have lost a severe amount of bone due to tooth loss, gum disease and bone atrophy can now be considered candidates for new implant-supported, non-removable teeth.
It is thanks to the innovative design of the All-on-4® that bone grafting is almost never needed in preparation for the dental implants. The benefits of this are:
- It can save patients tens of thousands of dollars on this costly procedure,
- It saves patients the trauma of going through an additional invasive and painful procedure,
The comprehensive solution to a “terminal dentition”, tooth loss and edentulism, the All-on-4® dental implant technique, almost always makes new Teeth In A Day™ possible for people across the age spectrum, so contact MALO SMILES to find out if you’re a candidate!
