The lips serve as a curtain to the teeth, and are an integral part of the smile and therefore the overall cosmetics of the face.

Dr. Alexander Volchonok is a highly respected periodontist in New York, NY, who spoke on August 17, 2017, at the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) World Congress XXXV. Honored as one of the Young Implantologists, Dr. Volchonok lecture was on The Interdisciplinary Management of Maxillary Lip Support in Fully Edentulous Patients. This three-day event was the 35th anniversary of the ICOI World Congress and covered leading technologies and techniques that can help periodontal professionals achieve greater success when placing dental implants.
The ICOI is the world’s largest dental implant society, of which the Association of Dental Implant Auxiliaries (ADIA) is a part. The ICOI was founded in 1972 and is devoted to providing dental professionals with leading implant education. The ICOI is an association of various specialties, including general dentists, periodontists, prosthodontists and more. It is the world’s largest provider of dental implant continuing education. Dr. Volchonok is pleased to be a trusted speaker for a group of dental clinicians known for their skill in placing dental implants.
Before implant placement, periodontists consider the look and function of numerous aspects of the face. During the ICOI World Congress, Dr. Volchonok spoke on lip support for patients who have lost all of their teeth. Dr. Volchonok states, “The lips serve as a curtain to the teeth, and are an integral part of the smile and therefore the overall cosmetics of the face. When patients lose teeth and the subsequent gums and bone that support them, so too do they lose the support to the lips. The result becoming thin, wrinkled, sunken-in lips. However, through the proper surgical and prosthetic approach in its possible to rebuild this support to the teeth, lips, and face.”
Dr. Volchonok is a board-certified periodontist practicing in New York, NY and Norwalk, CT. Along with other specialized periodontal services, he offers reliable dental implant placement to patients who have missing teeth. When placed correctly, dental implants can fully restore dental functionality and improve the smile’s appearance. Implants become part of the jaw bone over time, and they should be cared for just like any other teeth. Most patients who receive implants can expect them to last up to 25 years or even longer with good care. As not all patients are eligible to receive implants, it is important to undergo a dental implant consultation by a periodontist soon after a tooth is lost.
Patients who would like to find out if they are good candidates for dental implants are encouraged to meet with Dr. Volchonok for a consultation. The trusted periodontist in New York, NY, may recommend that bone grafting be performed prior to implant placement in some cases.
