According to Dr. Irfan Atcha, many patients are living longer and do not find a complete removable denture acceptable. The demand for dental implants is rising exponentially and is now considered the standard of care. The practices that incorporate less expensive, immediate loading techniques will have the ability to offer the patient a great service. "We are changing lives of our patients" mentions Dr. Atcha
Complete rehabilitation of the upper and lower jaws can be costly and time consuming. A new technique that has been common in Europe for many years has crossed the Atlantic and is becoming very popular in North America and is FDA approved. This system is called the All-on-4™ Concept because it utilizes only four implants per arch for an immediate complete full fixed-detachable screw retained prosthesis. The prosthesis is similar to the Brånemark® System hybrid denture that was developed years ago.
The system can be used in the maxilla (Upper Jaw) allowing surgeons like Dr. Atcha to avoid sinus grafting or in the mandible (lower jaw) to avoid having to place implants far back. The prosthesis (teeth) can be completed the same day as surgery or the next day to accommodate the lab processing time. All-on-4™ is a protocol that allows patients to receive a fixed and cost effective solution. This technology is designed for situations where no other solution is possible. Patients can get implants and new teeth in one visit.
Dr. Irfan Atcha is one of the selected few advanced trained clinician in the world that is offering this revolutionized technique to his patients so they can have same day teeth to chew and smile again and also to save patients more money as it is less costly than most traditional jaw reconstructive approaches. With more traditional approaches, eight to twelve implants were required to replace an entire jaw with teeth, and other procedures such as bone grafting and sinus lifts were necessary. The All-on-4 techniques eliminates the need for these more invasive and costly techniques. Says Dr. Atcha.
Additionally, with the availability of the i-CAT Cone Beam 3-D Dental CT Scan in the office Dr. Atcha has the capability to see detailed images of a patient's jaw, allowing them to make an accurate and predictable diagnosis with enhanced treatment planning. No more trips to a different place to get a specific x-ray or scan! From your initial consultation all the way through to post-operative care and follow-ups, you can do everything right in the comfort of Dr. Atcha's Center as Dr. Atcha surgically places the Dental Implant and the teeth on the Implants all by himself in the same day (Teeth-In-A-Day) mentions Tony Waznonis the prosthetic director for the center.
Dr. Atcha will share this revolutionary technique on December 2nd, 2011 from 9:00am to 2:00pm at Technic dental lab in Orland Park, IL. "This course will present surgical and prosthetic overview of the All-on-4TM technique, Zygomatic and Pterygomaxillary dental implants including immediate function full-case/total oral rehabilitation" mentions Mike Capps the CEO of Technic Dental Lab. "It is a pleasure and an honor to have Dr. Atcha share his surgical and prosthetic experience to a group of Dentists locally" says Capps.
