Implantology/maxillofacial

The All-on-4TM Protocol is a revolutionary approach developed over a decade ago by Paulo Malo and the Malo Clinic team, which allows the rehabilitation of totally edentulous patients with the placement of just 4 titanium implants in each jaw through a quick and minimally invasive procedure.

These implants act as a foundation, allowing the placement of a fixed set of teeth, similar to natural teeth. This technique stabilizes bone levels, keeping the jaws healthy.

The All-on-4TM allows even those patients with virtually no bone to have fixed teeth without the need for a bone transplant. The result is fixed (non-removable) natural looking dentition, indistinguishable from natural teeth.

As its name implies, pre-prosthetic surgery is designed to prepare the mouth and gum tissues for the installation of a new prosthesis.

It can include:

  • Soft tissue excision
  • Alveoplasty
  • Frenectomy
  • Tuberoplasty

These interventions with complex-sounding names are in fact small procedures made under local anaesthesia. They are fast and you can get back to your normal activities in a day or two.

Periodontitis is an infection of the periodontium, i.e. the different tissues that support the teeth, such as the gingivae and the alveolar bone.

If periodontitis is not treated rapidly, it can cause gingivitis and even tooth loss.

Periodontal surgery is practiced to eliminate dental plaque or calculus that can be found around teeth and under the gums.

Before restoration, periodontal surgery may be necessary to stabilize the patient’s teeth or bone.

Dentistry

One of your teeth hurts a lot? You probably need a root canal treatment, an intervention that will devitalize a sick tooth.

The procedure is done to remove the pulp from the affected tooth and replace it with an inert material: the tooth is “saved”, thus avoiding ablation. The procedure requires 2 or 3 appointments and a few days of convalescence.

Facets are thin shells covering the part of the teeth that show in the smile. They are used to restore stained, discoloured, slightly distorted or distorted teeth.

Aiming to correct aesthetics, facets are mainly made of porcelain or composite.

If your wisdom teeth do not have enough space to grow normally, it is essential to remove them to avoid complications. Often badly positioned and hard to clean, they can affect, infect and encyst adjacent teeth.

A dental crown is a very realistic reproduction of a tooth. It looks like a porcelain cap. It is placed over a damaged tooth, cut beforehand, to cover and protect it, while restoring its shape, aesthetics, size and strength.

This is an anomaly that causes affected patients to grind their teeth at an abnormal frequency. Often caused by anxiety or an abnormal teeth closure, bruxism can cause serious complications leading to severe damage to the jaw joints and teeth.

Aesthetic medicine

Blepharoplasty is an intervention that corrects drooping eyelids or bags under the eyes, both of which make the face look older and tired.

The purpose of the intervention is to reduce excess eyelid skin and remove pockets of fat. The upper and lower eyelids can be done separately or simultaneously.

The anaesthesia is usually intravenous sedation and the intervention only lasts from 30 to 60 minutes.

The loss of skin elasticity loss due to pregnancy or simply to time has a direct impact on breast shape and firmness.

Patients who are generally satisfied with the size of their breasts can have a breast lift to firm them up.

This technique can be paired with the insertion of a breast implant.

Liposuction consists of removing a clump of stubborn fat through a small tube in a specific area of the body.

Regions that are usually treated are the thigh, buttocks and abdomen.

Abdominoplasty is an aesthetic surgery designed to remove excess skin in the abdominal region, often caused by multiple pregnancies or major weight loss.

It is followed by a 4-to-6-week recovery period: the time needed to let the abdominal skin heal.

Ideal for getting your waist back!
