Dr Omar Iqbal has a special interest in replacing missing teeth with dental implants and has travelled extensively to train with some of the top names in the dental world to further his skills. This week he is flying off to the Malo Clinic in Lisbon to train with Dr Paulo Malo to further his skills with the ‘All on 4? dental implant technique.
Dr Paulo Malo developed the all on 4 technique in the 90s which marked one of the most significant advances in dental implants. The all on 4 technique is a surgical and prosthetic procedure for the total rehabilitation of the edentulous mouth. The technique involves the placement of 4 implants in the anterior of the jaws, where bone thickness is greater, allowing a higher success rate and also avoiding the need for bone grafts. The four implants support a fixed set of teeth with 12 to 14 teeth and can be placed on the same day of surgery and so the term ‘teeth in a day‘ was coined.
