No One Should Die with thier teeth in a glass!

  1. 1. No One Should Die With Their Teeth in a Glass! ® Or at least that’s the mission statement of Chicago implant dentist, Dr. Irfan Atcha whose popular dental practice offers patients the very latest in dental implant procedures, the ‘All-on-4.’Oral Health Problems in the United StatesAccording to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, between 4% and 12% ofAmerican adults present with advanced periodontal disease. “Periodontitis or gum diseaseis an acute oral bacterial infection of the gums and encasing jaw bone,” explains Chicagoimplant dentist Dr. Irfan Atcha. “50% of the severe cases of gum disease I see are aconsequence of tobacco use, whether it’s chewing tobacco or smoking cigarettes.”This is not entirely surprising, is it? We are all aware of the connection between tobacco-use and gum disease. But what’s truly shocking to learn from Dr. Atcha is that a staggering80% of all Americans have some form or stage of a gum infection or disease; from thebeginning stages of gingivitis to full-blown periodontitis.“80% of the American population has serious oral health problems,” says Dr. Atcha.“Chances are, you’re a part of that 80%, whether you know it or not! By the time Americanadults reach the age of 65, 30% of them are completely edentulous, in other words, theydon’t have a single tooth left in their mouth.”The oral health problems in the United States may affect a greater percentage of adults, butevidence of our negligent attitudes is evident in the oral health of our young children.According to the CDC, tooth decay affects more than 25% of American children between theages of two and five, and a shocking 50% of kids ages 12 to 15.“Just think about that for a second,” says Dr. Atcha. “Think about your children at school.Half of the kids in his or her class have been affected by tooth decay. It is a great possibilitythat your child is on the wrong side of those statistics.”
  2. 2. What all these statistics tell us is that although the United States is at the forefront ofmedical research and technology, at a grassroots level, we are a nation struggling to do thevery basics of proper oral healthcare.“The good news is that although the terrible oral ailments that cause toothlessness may beexceptionally common and painful in their advanced stages, they are also whollypreventable,” says Chicago implant dentist Dr. Atcha. “Unlike other pervasive illnesses anddiseases, gum disease and tooth loss can be prevented with the right home oral hygieneroutine, coupled with regular attention from a dental healthcare professional.”Prevention is better than cure, but if you have already lost most or all of your natural teeth,as a staggering portion of the United States already have, what can you do?Oral Rehabilitation with “All-on-4” Dental ImplantsThe field of implantology has changed substantially over the last 10 years. Dental implantshave actually been a popular method of teeth replacement for over 50 years, but it’s onlywith recent advancements in surgical protocol and dental implant hardware that dentistshave been able to offer them as a solution to a much wider variety of patient cases.“For example, prior to the innovation of ‘All-on-4’ dental implants, patients having a full setof permanent teeth placed could need as many as 20 dental implants and multiplesurgeries to place them,” explains Dr. Atcha. “Patients who had been living without teethfor many years and who had lost a lot of jaw bone tissue could also require bone graftingsurgery. The result is that you have a method for teeth replacement that would take up to18 months in and out of the dentist’s office and could cost patients over $100,000.”It’s no wonder dental implants had a bad rap! That is until the introduction of a newsurgical technique known as the “All-on-4”. “All on Four dental implants offer a tremendousleap forward in the field of fixed oral rehabilitation,” says Dr. Atcha. “It enables us toprovide patients with a brand new set of non-removable and immediately functional teethin a single dental appointment.”By carefully inserting the implants in very specific locations in the jaw (see image below),implant dentists like Dr. Atcha can provide strong support for a customized prosthetic

And the “All-on-4” can typically do this without the need for bone grafting,many dental implants and multiple surgeries, which literally makes it possible for patientsto get a new set of teeth in a single day and at a cost that is reduced by tens of thousands ofdollars.“All-on-4 Implants”: Modern Day Solution to Age Old ProblemThe “All on Four” surgical protocol together with experienced implant dentists such as Dr.Irfan Atcha have brought the many benefits and advantages of dental implants within reachof the tens of millions of edentulous and near-edentulous people that currently live in theUnited States.“Client testimonials are pouring in, all of them with incredible feedback,” says Dr. Atcha.“All on Four dental implants are living up to their reputation as the best and mostsophisticated teeth replacement solution. Our clients are happier than they’ve been inmany, many years and the technology is enabling our practice to live up to its noble goals.”Tooth loss, periodontal (gum) disease and edentulism may be frightfully common problemsin the United States, but at least there is now something we can do to treat the terriblesymptoms. Removable partial and full dentures have been around for centuries, but it’sonly fitting that we begin to address oral problems with the sophisticated technologies thatare available to us today.“All-on-4” implants are truly a modern solution to an age-old problem.
