Hot Springs, AK (PRWEB) May 17, 2011
Periodontist Dr. Ross Atkinson of Hot Springs set himself apart from others after performing the first All-on-4 dental implant procedure in the state. For 28 years, he has been specializing in periodontics and periodontal services. The doctor’s continued education and extensive training helped pave the way to be the first licensed practitioner in the state to perform this unique and cutting edge procedure.
The All-on-4 procedure was first developed in the early 2000’s with the design to provide a quicker and more efficient method of placing patients’ dental implants. The technique gets its name because of the four implants that are strategically placed in the upper or lower jaw to support a full arch of teeth that are bolted in place.
“The procedure eliminates the need for bone grafting surgery prior to implant placement and provides a restoration of high quality within the shortest time possible,” says Dr. Atkinson.
Dr. Atkinson learned about the procedure through his years of research and considers it the best possible alternative solution for patients who couldn’t wear dentures or need teeth removed, Atkinson explained.
“The All-on-4 Dental Implant Procedure uses only four implants that are strategically placed.” He added, “The most appealing aspect of treatment to patients is temporary teeth can be attached to the implants the same day the implants are placed. Patients never go without teeth that are bolted in place.”
Since establishing his practice in 1982 Dr. Atkinson has been providing his community with a wide variety of Periodontal services. He is a member of the AAP, ADA, Arkansas Society of Periodontists, International Congress of Oral Implantology, CDD and the Garland County Dental Society. The office of Dr. Ross Atkinson is located in Hot Springs, AR .
