Oxnard, CA (PRWEB) July 21, 2014
Thousand Oaks dentist Dr. Saj Jivraj, Founder of the Anacapa Dental Art Institute in Woodland Hills and Oxnard, Calif., recently returned from his time as a featured speaker at the Nobel Biocare World Symposium in Marina Del Rey, Calif.
The Woodland Hills permanent teeth in one day expert, award-winning prosthodontist and international speaker presented on the permanent teeth in one day dental procedure on Friday.
“I was very pleased to be able to expand the knowledge of my colleagues in the dental profession,” Dr. Jivraj said. “In our office in Oxnard All on Four is helping many people.”
The Ventura All on Four procedure is part of having permanent teeth in one day.
Before permanent teeth in one day was developed 15 years ago, patients had to wait weeks or even months to get permanent replacement teeth. If the patient’s jaw bone had lost density, they needed a bone graft to use traditional implants.
With the All on Four procedure, patients no longer have to wait or receive a bone graft. That’s because the All on Four procedure uses four implants, two of which are angled, on which to anchor a whole jaw of new prosthetic teeth. The angled implants allow for greater stability even in less-dense bone.
The procedure is done in a day because expert dentists like Dr. Jivraj can plan the surgery based on three-dimensional images of a patient’s mouth. This allows Dr. Jivraj to plan the location of the implants and to design a new set of teeth before the patient has the procedure.
Dr. Jivraj is an award-winning prosthodontist who specializes in implant, cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry. Besides being a former chairman of the University of Southern California School of Dentistry’s Fixed Prosthodontics and Operative Dentistry section, he also is an international lecturer and has written more than two dozen articles on implant dentistry and restorative dentistry for the British Dental Association.
Dr. Jivraj received advanced prosthodontic training at the USC School of Dentistry. He is co-author of the textbook “Treatment Planning in Implant Dentistry,” which is used around the world. Dr. Jivraj is on the editorial board of the highly prestigious Journal of Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry, ad hoc reviewer for the Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry and is associate clinical editor for Dental Teamwork magazine.
He is an associate clinical professor at the USC School of Dentistry, clinical teacher at the Eastman Dental Institute in London and is on the board of directors for the British Academy of Restorative Dentistry.
Dr. Jivraj won “Best of USA” by his peers in 2008.
His partner at the Anacapa Dental Art Institute is Dr. Mamaly Reshad, who also is a former chairman of the University of Southern California School of Dentistry’s Fixed Prosthodontics and Operative Dentistry section.
Dr. Reshad, a fellow prosthodontist, is an internationally known expert in cosmetic and implant dentistry. He has published in numerous peer-reviewed journals and textbooks on various topics related to prosthodontics, aesthetics, and implant dentistry.
Dr. Reshad is a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry. He is an honorary clinical teacher at the Eastman Dental Institute and on the faculty of the Global Institute for Dental Education.
