All-on-4® in Kew
What are All on 4 Implants?
The All on 4 dental implants procedure is an innovative solution for replacing an entire set of teeth.
Brought to Australia by Dr Alex Fibishenko, the All on 4 procedure involves replacing all teeth in an arch (top or bottom) based on four dental implants.
The All on 4 dental implant procedure is an invasive procedure but done with expert planning and under general anaesthetic, making the process efficient and allowing comfort for the patient.
After surgery, patients leave the clinic with 3D printed teeth inserted a few hours after waking up from their procedure, which compresses the gum tissue and minimises the swelling, allowing for a more comfortable All on 4 final prosthesis insert appointment less than 24 hours later.
Kew Dentistry holds a partnership with Dr Fibishenko, so we are recognised as an expert All on 4 clinic. Dr Joe Xanthopoulos is a specialist in the All on 4 procedure and is one of the few dentists selected to work with Dr Fibishenko.
An Immediate Solution for Full-mouth Rehabilitation

All on 4 Dental Implants Recovery Time
The pain associated with All on 4 dental implant surgery is minimal. It can be managed with basic pain relief medication provided by Kew Dentistry, along with antibiotics and all of your post-op recovery needs.
Within 1-3 weeks post-surgery, your swelling and discomfort will have minimised significantly. Our friendly staff will counsel you through your long and short-term All on 4 aftercare.
The natural healing process begins the day after your permanent teeth are inserted. Implants and grafting take three months to integrate into your jaw bone.
So for the first three months after surgery, you have to stick with a soft diet. This doesn’t mean you’ll be living off soup for three months; however, avoiding anything that will put excessive force on the implants is vital – foods like nuts, apples, muesli bars, and so on.
Our doctors at Kew Dentistry recommend sticking with foods like slow-cooked meals, pasta, rice etc. We will see you at the 3-month mark to ensure you’re ready to introduce the food you were unable to eat prior to your new All on 4 final prosthesis.
Contact our friendly team of industry professionals to book a consultation.
General anaesthetic and intravenous sedation are available. With general anaesthetic, you’ll be sleeping during the entire procedure. Intravenous sedation places you in a relaxed but conscious state. We strive to keep the treatment as pain-free as possible.
- We ONLY do all on 4 under general anaesthetic – no other options
This minimally invasive procedure uses keyhole surgery with no bone grafting, minimising the costs and allowing you to speak and eat normally after treatment. All-on-4® devices are easy to keep clean with regular brushing and special flossing tools.
All-on-4® can also help prevent further jawbone deterioration and give immediate results using fewer implants.
Treatment is very fast, taking just 2-3 days to complete. The implants are placed and the final teeth are inserted only 24 hours after the surgery.
Absolutely no one has been turned away from an All-on-4® procedure at Kew Dentistry. Even if you’ve let your teeth go or have had bone grafting in the past, our dental team are confident there is a way to give you the smile you’ve always wanted.
Our Kew Dentistry dentists offer All-on-4® Plus, which allows for additional procedures such as bone grafting, soft tissue repositioning, additional implants and more. We aim to satisfy your needs in comfort, function and aesthetics.
The difference between All on 4 implants and dentures comes down to the permanent nature of the All on 4 procedure. All on 4 Implants are placed via 4 connections drilled into the jawbone for reinforced stability. Dentures may be removed at any given time.
If you are a candidate, you may apply to pay for the treatment with Supercare. Supercare allows you access to your Superannuation, increasing the accessibility and affordability of All on 4. We also have payment plan options through a third party payment plan company called TLC allowing you to borrow up to $50,000*
