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.

All-On-4 Dental Implants Clinic Melbourne
The Centre for Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry (CAID) is a high-end dental clinic that offers affordable solutions in all areas of dentistry for the entire family. From simple preventative maintenance and paediatric dentistry to a full smile makeover and advanced rehabilitations with dental implants, we strive to always remain at the forefront of dental technology whilst remaining extremely competitive.
Appropriately located in Melbourne, the lifestyle and sporting capital of Australia …where Results always matter, Centre for Aesthetic & Implant Dentistry (CAID) has an international reputation as a centre of excellence for advanced oral rehabilitation and dental implants.
Melbourne’s CAID is a purpose-built facility, the first of its kind in Australia, designed for the seamless integration of the disciplines of Dento-Alveolar Surgery, General Anesthetic, Dentistry and immediate aesthetic laboratory solutions. CAID is internationally renowned for training and education of dentists and dental specialists in the field of Dental Implants and All On 4 Plus, All On 4 Clinic’s trademark.
The clinic was designed and built to facilitate advanced rehabilitation with dental implants in a seemless streamlined approach. An onsite dental implants laboratory headed by Australia’s first All-On-4 trained technician is on standby for immediate teeth replacement.
CAID is where Dr Alex Fibishenko pioneered the original ‘All-On-4’ treatment in Australia, and went on to popularise it with specialists through the introduction of the ‘All-On-4 Plus’ concept with procedural improvements and innovations. Having trained hundreds of dentists and specialists from Australia and abroad at the Melbourne clinic, All-On-4 and All-On-4 Plus have become more publicly accessible to patients with more and more clinics being set up modelled on CAID. With the premise of a fixed, reliable, aesthetic, streamlined and affordable solution to dental cripples and denture wearers, these procedures are today seen in the media as frequently, if not more, as advertisements for tooth paste.
CAID also employs experienced cosmetic dentists and hygienists offering a broad spectrum of dental services including cosmetic dentistry, crown and bridge prosthodontics, invisalign no braces teeth straightening, teeth whitening, preventative dentistry, among other procedures, as part of the comprehensive care philosophy of the All On 4 Clinic brand procedures.
Positioned on the Burwood Highway tram-lines, in Melbourne’s east, the clinic is easily accessible to accommodation and shops. Patient parking is available at the rear.
DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING & 3-D CT-ASSISTED IMPLANT PLANNING
Our ‘New Generation i-CAT’ Cone Beam Volumetric scanner allows on-the-spot CT imaging and enables instant diagnosis and treatment planning, facilitating a streamlined process for the patient. All our Cone Beam x-rays are reported by specialist radiologists . The CT X-Rays are BULK BILLED where possible.
SPECIALIST ANAESTHETIC SERVICE
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 built a facility that does! Anaesthetic services are provided by specialist anaesthetists at our clinic to a standard that meets or exceeds any hospital facility. Brain wave monitors and other sophisticated equipment allow accurate gauging of patients conciousness and ensure precise and efficient delivery of the anaesthetic with the quickest possible recovery and reduced post operative side effects. Medicare rebates are available for specialist anaesthetic services.
Several accredited dentists and specialists also use the centre’s dedicated theatre for sleep dentistry and advanced dental implant procedures.
