The origins of titanium implants

In the 1950s, Swedish professor Per-Ingvar Brånemar discovered osseointegration—the body’s ability to tolerate and become one with titanium. This discovery led to him creating and placing the world’s first titanium implant in 1965.

The treatment was so profound, and the impact on his patient so beneficial, that it changed the course of implant dentistry forever.

Professor Malo creates the All-on-4® technique

By the 1990’s, Professor Paulo Malo from Portugal, alongside leading implant manufacturer Nobel Biocare were building on Per-Ingvar Brånemar’s work, and devised a new concept in which four posterior implants tilted at a 45-degree angle could be immediately placed. The All-on-4® treatment concept as we know it today was born.

By 1998, Professor Malo treated his first ever patient with his technique that is now recognised as the gold standard of full-arch teeth replacement. Professor Malo’s expertise is highly sought after, leading to him publishing numerous books in the field of restorative dentistry and teaching dental professionals around the world.

All-on-4® history

First invented by Professor Paulo Malo in Portugal in the early 1990s, the All-on-4® technique involves placing four implants in the upper or lower jaw, without any requirement for bone grafting – which previously increased risks to the patient.

All-on-4® comes to Australia

At Bond Street, we’re proud to play a role in All-on-4®’s introduction to Australia. Our All-on-4® treatment concept team is proudly led by Dr Larry Benge, who personally trained with Professor Malo and worked closely with him and Nobel Biocare to bring All-on-4® to patients across the country.

This level of expertise and understanding has made Dr Benge and the team All-on-4® leaders, not just throughout Melbourne, but across Australia and globally. As well as being leaders in the original All-on-4® technique, we also offer zygomatic implants for patients with more significant bone loss. We also specialise in placing high-quality single tooth dental implants.
