The future of implant dentistry is constantly changing and evolving through the hard work of visionaries who continue to push the envelope of science. The International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) Vancouver World Congress has been designed to educate, entertain, and energize through thought-provoking presentations delivered by world-class speakers representing many disciplines and many countries. Dr. Irfan (Ivan) Atcha will be one of the presenters at the Congress presenting his challenging yet his interesting case.

Dr. Irfan (Ivan) Atcha, who maintains a busy dental practice in Dyer, IN, is invited to present one of his challenging yet his very interesting cases at the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) World Congress XXVI being held in Vancouver, Canada from August 20-22, 2009 at the Vancouver Convention Centre. The Scientific Program Committee of the ICOI will consider the following categories for the Clinical Presentations: a) Basic science and/or clinical research b) Clinical applications, techniques or tips and c) Laboratory applications, techniques or tips. All clinicians will be reviewed by the Scientific Program Committee and will be selected based on merit and appropriateness of subject.

The objective of the presentations is a concise display of a single concept/technique lasting a maximum of 10 minutes so that multiple presentations can be made to small groups. Presenters must also have a 3 minute summation to give to the judges upon request.

Dr. Atcha's (a Diplomat of the ICOI) presentation topic will be "Restoring the Fully Edentulous Maxilla Using the Nobel Guide Concept" which has been accepted by the Committee for presentation at the World Congress in Vancouver, mentions Dr. Avi. Schertritt (clinic chair-person). "I think it is an ideal topic for presentation and we look forward to seeing Dr. Atcha in Vancouver."

"Dr. Atcha's clinical topic focuses on minimally invasive guided implant placement promises to revolutionize the way we practice implant dentistry," says Dr. Schertritt. This computer-guided treatment allows dental implants and the teeth to be precisely placed in the same day procedure without any stitches by an advanced and a skilled clinician like Dr. Atcha that places the dental implants and the teeth on the implants the same day for patients chewing and comfort. Dr. Irfan Atcha is proud to be the first to bring this new dental development to Northwest Indiana and Chicago for the general dental public's benefit. Dr. Atcha is one of a handful of dentists that have combined these new advancements in computer generated design and modeling, advanced dental implant design and technique, and advancements in "CAT" scan technology to provide a solution for people who have "just had it!" wearing dentures or that are tired of loose teeth in the top jaw, bottom jaw, or both. In the past, multiple surgeries over the course of 4-9 months were usually needed to obtain what can now be achieved in approximately one hour of surgery per jaw!

The Science behind This Modern Dental Breakthrough
Computer based dental implant surgery, computer designed and manufactured surgical guides (Nobel-Guide) and simulated implant surgery computer software (Procera) along with CT x-ray scanning makes these advances in dental implant planning and 'teeth in an hour-instant teeth' possible. Dr. Atcha is one of a handful of dentists in the U.S. that have taken these advancements in medical technology and combined them for the maximum benefit for his clients to speed up the dental implant treatment process. What it took nature 15 years to develop; Dr. Atcha can now give back to his patients in about an hour of surgery.

Here is what happens: Following receipt of the 3-dimensional computer x-ray scan of a jaw, Dr. Atcha performs a computer simulated (virtual reality) implant surgery before ever touching the patient's actual mouth. The information gathered is very accurate and allows Dr. Atcha to visualize the future locations for the dental implants and gives him the knowledge of his patients jaw anatomy in three dimensions. The patient's vital anatomical structures are identified before surgery and Dr. Atcha can measure the bone quality and quantity directly from the computer images to make important decisions about how to best handle the care for success.

After this, the vast amounts of planning information Dr. Atcha receives from the computerized implant surgery simulation is digitally transmitted to Belgium for fabrication of a highly accurate guide that allows for the 'Teeth in an Hour-Instant Teeth' replacement teeth to be made for delivery at your surgery. This computer manufactured guide will also be used by Dr. Atcha during the actual surgery to put implants in the positions that were planned many weeks ago via the virtual reality surgery. Finally, Dr. Atcha imports the world's most aesthetic teeth and porcelains imported from Switzerland to give a superior cosmetic result to his patients.

"The bottom line is that our patients walk out with Instant Teeth!" Mentions Dr. Atcha. "If you suffer from the discomfort and embarrassment of dentures or are tired of having a mouth full of loose teeth and are short on time, then 'Teeth in one Hour-Instant Teeth' may be the permanent dental solution you've been seeking. 'Teeth in an Hour-Instant Teeth' can give you back your freedom to smile, laugh, eat, and a renewed zest for life. Imagine!" says Dr. Atcha.
