Dr. Paulo Malo has been presented a Quarter Century Award from Nobel Biocare, honoring the twenty-fifth anniversary of the revolutionary All-on-4® treatment concept. At a gathering in Nobel Biocare’s Dental Experience Center in Zurich, Switzerland, company President, Patrik Eriksson presented the trophy.
Dr. Paulo Malo led the development of this treatment protocol in the early nineteen-nineties, with much-valued support from the late Dr. Bo Rangert of Nobel Biocare. In 1998, he treated the first patient documented in the first scientific study, with the final version of the concept that became commercially launched.
The All-on-4® treatment concept is widely recognized as one of the most significant developments in implant dentistry. It brought a revolutionary way of providing patients with a cost-efficient, graftless solution for fixed full-arch prostheses on the day of surgery, on just four implants.
