Online PR News – 13-July-2011 – Chicago, IL – Dr. Steven A. Koos, D.D.S., M.D., a specialist in dental implants in the Chicago Loop area and owner of ORA Oral Surgery & Implant Studio, is pleased to announce that his practice is now one of only a few comprehensive dental facilities offering the innovative All-On-4 dental implants in Chicago. All-On-4 is a unique dental implant technique that provides patients with a new set of permanent teeth attached to dental implants in just one day.
The Chicago All-On-4 dental implant procedure is innovative in its approach to providing patients with dental implants and a new set of permanent teeth. Rather than the lengthy year-long procedure traditionally required when patients get dental implants, the All-On-4 technique completes the entire process in just one day.
Chicago implant dentist, Dr. Koos and his team of dentists and laboratory technicians, do all of the preliminary work ahead of time to prepare for the “teeth in a day” procedure, including any necessary x-rays, CT scans and impressions. He has done hundreds of cases to date and has truly improved the quality of life for these patients. When patients come into his Chicago oral surgery office for their All-On-4 procedure, they then have a set of four dental implants permanently placed into the jawbone. These implants are angled in such a way as to take full advantage of the healthiest bone available so that no bone grafts are usually required, and only four dental implants are needed to securely hold a full arch of teeth. A full set of teeth can immediately be placed on the new implants and the patient leaves the Chicago oral surgery office with their new teeth in just one visit.
“All-On-4 is a revolutionary approach to dental restoration and provides patients with a new set of teeth in just one day,” explains the Chicago oral surgeon, Dr. Koos. “This procedure is a great option for those that don’t want conventional dentures to go through the otherwise lengthy process of traditional dental implants, which may involve bone grafts, at least six to eight dental implants and a long healing process before the new replacement teeth can be permanently attached. With All-On-4, patients can walk out of my office on the same day with a full set of replacement teeth that are securely and permanently attached that restores their confident smile for years past.”
In addition to the All-On-4 procedure, the Chicago oral surgeon also offers the option for traditional dental implants to his patients. He finds however, that the All-On-4 technique is the most desirable to patients for a number of reasons. The entire process is completed quickly, it requires less invasive surgery and healing, and patients do not have to spend a long period of time wearing temporary poorly fitting dentures while their dental implants heal. “Many of my Chicago patients opt for All-On-4 due to the many benefits the procedure offers over traditional implant retained dentures,” explains Dr. Koos. “This is one of the most innovative dental implant techniques available, yet there are only a limited number of oral surgeons that offer the advanced procedure because of lack of training and because lack of having a comprehensive treatment facility. I am proud to be one of the only full-service All-on-4 facilities in Chicago.”
