Dr. Irfan (Ivan) Atcha Gets Recognized as the Regional and a National Dental Implant Expert About 240 million people worldwide are missing more than one tooth, and while only 10 million have opted for dental implants. Also, there are currently 32 million people in the US that wear dentures and 20 million have fit function and appearance problems! The good news is that over the past decade dental implants have become the state-of-the-art way to permanently replace missing teeth compared to old fashioned and out dated 17th century technologies. Having dental implants can end the embarrassment of missing one’s teeth so patients can chew and smile again. With Teeth-In-One-Day and even Teeth-In-One-Hour Dental Implants patients are able to walk out of Dr. Irfan Atcha's Dental Implant Center with fixed non-removable implant teeth that would normally have taken years to complete with traditional outdated approaches. Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 15, 2010 -- If someone is missing a tooth or more, they may find that there are other things they miss. People may wish for a natural smile and the ability to chew foods they desire. Maybe people feel self-conscious about their teeth and mouth, or discomfort as remaining teeth shift. And perhaps they've experienced muscle strains, an inability to speak clearly, headaches or unease in familiar situations at work, with friends or at home. People with missing tooth or teeth will only eat what they can, not what they want. With the miracle of dental implants people can chew and eat what they want, not what they can, according to Dr. Irfan (Ivan) Atcha, who is the Chicago land’s dental implant expert.

There are a number of ways to replace tooth crowns. But if you are forced to replace your entire tooth - crown and root – the best option is dental implants. The older and outdated techniques associated with dental implants generally require anywhere from five months to two years to complete. Dr. Irfan (Ivan) Atcha Chicago land’s most recognized dental implant expert has perfected the Teeth-In-One-Day technique that enables patients to literally have teeth and their smile in one day! As Dr. Atcha explains, “with the Teeth-In-one-Day dental implant protocol, not only do patients get their new teeth at once, they have more natural looking teeth and gums than one could have imagined".

With the Teeth-In-One-Day procedure placing the teeth implants immediately after teeth removal has many advantages over implant procedures that only permits delayed tooth placement. For instance, delayed placement of an implants allows the surrounding gums and bone tissues to shrink. Later, when a dental implant surgeon then attempts to restore the tooth or teeth, the gums may have receded so far as to create an unnatural looking gum line or there may be inadequate bone remaining leading to aesthetic failure. Other advantages of this cutting edge technology include: dramatic reduction in treatment time and the number of appointments, immediate full function of the new tooth or teeth a natural cosmetic look and very little discomfort. In fact, some people have reported almost no pain at all. "Typically, dental implants are allowed to heal for twelve weeks to six or more months before they are used to support new teeth. The Teeth In One Day method can often be used to replace a single tooth,

several teeth, or a full mouth of teeth, upper or lower, with remarkable comfort, predictability and aesthetics." Patients can have their teeth sooner rather than later," says Dr. Atcha. "This gives patients the ability to have trial teeth on their dental implants instead of wearing a denture or a flipper," mentions Atcha.

According to Dr. Atcha: “it is possible to walk into our Dental Implant Center with missing one tooth or a whole mouthful of teeth, and leave with a completely new set of teeth that are firmly anchored, not dentures or removable temporaries.” “While extraction, implant placement and restoration may seem like extensive treatment for a patient to go through in one day, patients respond very favorably from Dr. Atcha’s anesthesia and pain management techniques with little discomfort, swelling or disruption in their daily schedules,” says Dr. Atcha. He has performed this procedure on patients ranging in ages from their twenties to their 90s with similar success. Mentions Luke Khang owner and President of LSK 121 Oral Prosthetic Lab in Naperville, IN. Patients who have undergone the procedure rarely take more than over-the-counter pain medication for a few days afterward. Also, they report a dramatic improvement in aesthetics, chewing ability, security and overall dental comfort as compared to failing teeth or loose irritating dentures. “Anyone who is missing one or more of their teeth due to injury, disease, or decay may be a candidate for Teeth-In-One-Day dental implants,” says Dr. Atcha.

Occasionally, older patients express concern that their age may prevent them from the benefits that dental implants offer. However, health is more of a determining factor than age. “If you're healthy enough to have a tooth and teeth extracted, you're probably healthy enough to receive dental implants with the Teeth-In-One-day procedure so you can smile that same day,” mentions Dr. Atcha. "With Dr. Atcha helping so many patients from all over Chicago land area and from other parts of the country we are excited to have Dr. Atcha talk to local group of Dentists and Dental specialist about his method of implant dentistry so they can help their patients as well". We will be hosting Dr. Atcha as a guest speaker at LSK 121 Oral Prosthetic lab on June 18, 2010. Mentions Bill Brune Dental Implant Solution Specialist from Nobel Biocare USA.

To get National reorganization one of Dr. Atcha most challenging case was published in the prestigious National Implant Dentistry Journal (Inclusive Dental from Glidewell Labs). “It was a pleasure for us to publish this case as it really touches on all clinical aspects of full mouth implant dentistry from A-Z". Mentions Dr. Brad Bochurst who is the Editor-In-Cheif of the Inclusive Dental Journal. It was so great to see in this case how Dr. Atcha had helped a young man who was denture sufferer with the Teeth-In-One-Hour minimally invasive dental implant technique. "The patient left Dr. Atcha's Center with fixed implant teeth in both of his upper and lower jaws!" Now that is what called pushing the envelope of science, says Bochurst.
