Online PR News – 19-May-2011 – – Dr. Kerry Voit, Clinical Director at Eon Clinics, Chicagoâ€™s premier dental implant center, has successfully performed over 1,000 All-On-4 cases, restoring smiles, self confidence and quality of life to patients in Chicago suffering with missing teeth or severe periodontal disease.
The All-on-4 technique was pioneered in Lisbon, Portugal by Dr. Paulo Malo in the early 1990s. This treatment plan allows patients to receive implants and a full set of non-removable replacement teeth during a single visit.
Unlike traditional dental implant treatments, the All-on-4 technique allows patients with minimal bone volume to receive dental implants without any bone grafting. For patients who have been told they are not candidates for dental implants or did not want to face multiple surgeries in order to complete treatment, the All-on-4 has proven to be revolutionary. Overall, itâ€™s more convenient, costs less than traditional dental implant treatments and takes one day, versus several months or even years.
The All on 4 technique is possible in part due to the use of angled implants. For patients with minimal bone volume, the implants are placed on an angle to maximize the support of available bone. These angled implants also make it possible for the surgeon to avoid vital structures such as the sinuses and the nerve in the lower jaw. The angled implants also provide the support necessary for patients to receive a new set of non-removable teeth the same day the implants are placed.
Critics say that angled implants canâ€™t work. But the All on 4 has been scientifically proven and documented in several professional journals. Once such article, published by the American Association of Maxillofacial Surgeons in 2009, reviewed nine separate studies that looked at 482 angled implants in 283 patients placed within a 12-year timeframe and found that angled implants had a success rate of 96.5% compared to axial implants, with a success rate of 96.9%. The success rate of angled implants is virtually the same as implants placed axially or straight up and down.
Since 2008, Eon Clinics has focused exclusively on dental implant treatments for their patients who were missing one, several or all of their teeth. At their "All-in-One" facility, patients will find the oral and maxillofacial surgeon, restorative dentist, diagnostic 3D CT scan, and dental lab all under one roof. This allows the doctors to collaborate more efficiently on each case and makes treatment more predictable and convenient for their patients. Performing the All on 4 technique, in their state of the art facility, Eon Clinics has been able to restore smiles, self-confidence and quality of life for their patients.
Dr. Kerry Voit, Clinical Director at Eon Clinics has performed over 1,000 All-on-4 procedures. This technique has been scientifically proven to have the same success rate as traditional dental implant treatments and offers patients a more convenient, less costly option with immediate results.For more information please visit http://www.eonclinics.com
