WOODLAND HILLS, CA (PRWEB) May 15, 2014
Dr. Saj Jivraj, founder founder of the Anacapa Dental Art Institute in Woodland Hills and Oxnard, Calif., has been invited to speak to the Nobel Biocare World Symposium in Marina Del Rey, Calif., in July.
Dr. Jivraj, an award-winning prosthodontist, will be giving a master class on the Teeth in a Day dental procedure at 1:30 p.m. Friday, July 18.
“Teeth in a Day is still not widely practiced in the United States,” Dr. Jivraj said. “Developed 15 years ago in Europe, it allows trained experts like myself and Dr. Mamaly Reshad (a partner in the Anacapa Dental Art Institute) to place the dental implants in one day rather than weeks and months.”
Dr. Jivraj said the Woodland Hills Teeth in a Day procedure uses implants embedded into thin bone without needing invasive bone graft surgery.
“Traditional dental implants require us to embed titanium posts into bone and later be capped with a permanent crown,” he said. “This takes months and requires patients to wear temporary dentures until the bone and gums heal.”

Both have been invited to speak at the American Academy of Restorative Dentistry meeting in February 2015.
Dr. Jivraj recently returned from a trip to India and spoke there about full mouth restoration. It was the third time he has presented in India in recent months. He was one of the main podium speakers at the Indian Society of Oral Implantologists conference in Mumbai.
Dr. Jivraj also spoke during the 29th annual meeting of the Academy of Osseointegration, and he gave a two-day training on Teeth in a Day in Yorba Linda, Calif, at Nobel Biocare’s facility last month.
Dr. Reshad presented with Dr. Jivraj in Yorba Linda. Dr. Reshad also recently gave a one and a half day course on full-mouth implant reconstructions in the Southern California area.
Internationally, Dr. Reshad has spoken to both the British Academy of Cosmetic Dentists in London and the French Dental Association in Paris since November.
Dr. Reshad and Dr. Jivraj are both prosthodontists trained in advanced techniques in implant dentistry, aesthetics and full-mouth reconstructions, and are former chairmen of the University of Southern California’s School of Dentistry’s Fixed Prosthodontics and Operative Dentistry section.
Dr. Reshad has been published in numerous peer-reviewed journals and textbooks on various topics related to prosthodontics, aesthetics and implant dentistry. He is on the editorial board for the highly prestigious Journal of Aesthetic and Restorative Dentistry and an honorary clinical teacher at the Eastman Dental Institute and a member of the faculty of the Global Institute for Dental Education.
Dr. Jivraj co-authored the textbook “Treatment Planning in Implant Dentistry,” which is used across the world. He is on the editorial board of the Journal of Esthetic and Restorative Dentistry, associate clinical editor for Dental Teamwork magazine and an ad hoc reviewer for the Journal of Prosthetic Dentistry.
He is on the faculty at the USC School of Dentistry as an associate clinical professor; is a clinical teacher at the Eastman Dental Institute in London; and is on the board of directors for the British Academy of Restorative Dentistry.
