The very first patient treated with dental implants was in 1965. He was 35 years old at the time and already wearing full dentures. He was interviewed at a major dental conference in Las Vegas in 2005 and he was asked something along the lines of: ‘why did you agree to be a Guiea pig, get something done to your body that had never been tried before?’ His answer was that he felt like an invalid, as though he had a disability, he said ‘if you were missing your arm and there was a breakthrough that could give you your arm back, would you not do anything to try it?’ His other motive was that he wanted to die with his teeth. He certainly achieved that goal. He passed away in 2007, with his dental-implant-supported fixed teeth. Sure, they were not the every same prostheses that were fitted back in 1965, there were numerous versions since that time, but most of the implants that supported the prosthesis were still the original dental implants.
A streamlined process that appears to be simple for the patient is a guiding principle with All On 4 Plus treatment. But an experience that is made to appear uncomplicated would not be complete without a suitable anaesthetic facility.
Patients want to be asleep for their procedure, but traditional hospital theaters do not cater for the specialised needs of the dental care provider. So we created facilities that do!
The All On 4 Clinics in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth have provisions for treatment has treated many hundreds of patients in a streamlined process using innovative techniques and Specialist anaesthetists provide anaesthetic services at the All On 4 Clinics in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. In Perth IV Sedation is offered by trained and board-endorsed sedationists or anaesthetists depending on individual needs. All facilities are fitted with monitoring equipment and that meets the standard of any hospital facility.
The reason that anaesthetic facilities are integrated into the All On 4 Clinic’s treatment model is because of the need to combine all the disciplines and areas of practice within the one clinic in order to consistently deliver immediate results with full set teeth replacement. Achieving this requires a sophisticated dental and anaesthetic set up, as well as a laboratory that can address any technical or production needs on the spot.
Our set up also lends itself to treatments by our cosmetic dentists in all other areas of dentistry under IV Sedation or General Anaesthetic. Also known as sleep dentistry, we treat both adults and children who have anxieties or a fear of the dentist.
