The All-on-4 is a procedure used for people who have lost all their teeth, or their existing teeth are too decayed or broken and have to be removed. The procedure was invented by dr. Paulo Malo in 1998. Our clinic is the official partner of the Malo clinic, and our founder, dr. Terenyi has participated in several clinical residency programs with dr. Malo to ensure she treats each patient with the highest level of expertise.

During the All-on-4 procedure, our oral surgeon will place 4, 6, or sometimes 8 implants that will be used as anchors to secure the restoration made specifically for you. This concept ensures that edentulous patients get a fixed, stable set of teeth that will function just like their natural teeth used to.
The All-on-4 concept is backed by 20 years of study and research and 98% of patients who received this treatment would recommend it and are satisfied with their new smile.

How long does the process take?
Each patient is different and the process can change case by case.
- Removing any existing teeth and preparing your temporary denture
If your current teeth can’t be saved, they need to be removed so the oral surgeon can place the implants in their places. At our clinic, we ensure the extraction of teeth is quick and painless. Once all the teeth are removed, you will receive a temporary denture that you can use until you receive your fixed set of teeth.
- Bone grafting/sinus lift
In some cases, the bone density or bone height is insufficient to be able to support the implants properly. In such cases, the oral surgeon will use bone grafting material to replace the missing bone. This material will be reabsorbed and replaced as your natural bone heals. This process takes time, so it is important to wait 3-4 months before the next step.
- Placing the implants
Once dr. Terenyi has insured that your bone is able to support implants, she will do the implantation procedure. She usually places 4, 6, or 8 implants into your jawline that will later become the anchors of your new set of teeth. This procedure takes 2-3 hours depending on the number of implants, but with dr. Terenyi’s expertise our patients receive the most safe, quickest and painless procedure possible.
- Let it heal!
As excited as patients feel about receiving their final set of teeth, it is important to let your body work its magic. Your jaw bone will fuse around the implants, making it stable enough to be able to support the teeth later on. This process, called osseointegration, takes about 3-4 months but it is essential before securing your new set of teeth.
- Preparing your final fixed denture
After enough time has passed, it is finally time for you to get your teeth! An imprint will be taken and the dental lab will prepare your final fixed denture. We work very closely with the dental lab to ensure patients get the desired outcome and the most natural-looking teeth that function just as well as real teeth.
Testimonial – Pamela, UK – All-on-4 with PFM crowns
“Dr Agnes is a superb dentist, the treatment I was given was excellent and even though I had complete mouth implants the treatment was much easier than I expected. A huge amount of care was taken to get the result I wanted, and I have received many compliments about the natural look of the implants. I would recommend this clinic.”
What does an All-on-4 cost?
The price of treatment can vary by person to person, but we put together a small cost estimate: one “basic” package with Alpha Bio implants and porcelain fused to metal crowns and one with high-end world-class Swedish Nobel Biocare implants and a Toronto bridge.
