An Ideal Solution for Edentulism

We have been providing full arch dental implants solutions for many years and through our research and patient case studies, have found the Atlantis Conus Concept to be one of the best solutions for patients suffering from edentulism and a painful, loose-fitting denture. The Conus Concept is a “fixed-removable” option, that combines the strength and stability of a fixed set of teeth with the simplified and easy maintenance of a removable denture. The benefits this solution has over implant supported overdentures or fixed hybrid prostheses (the All-on-X solution) are in the unique design of the abutments and friction caps. Individually designed using the patented ATLANTIS VAD software, these abutments are patient-specific to provide optimal aesthetics and lasting function of the restoration while in place.

Our oral surgeons meticulously plan your surgical procedure to ensure that the dental implants and abutments are precisely placed in your jaw. When exactly lined up and parallel with each other, these unique abutments allow for easy removal for cleaning at home. However, when your restoration is in place, they’ll provide the durability and strength you desire for stable biting and chewing, so you can continue to eat the foods you love. A cost-effective, “fixed” solution that’s removable for easy maintenance is often the sweet spot in full arch treatments that many of our patients choose. You’ll be able to regain your health and confidence with a beautiful smile that won’t move in your mouth!

Our Smile Restoration Process

Your full arch treatment process begins with a personalized consultation with our oral surgeons. This treatment requires an incredible amount of detail and precision to produce the desired results as well as provide lasting functional, aesthetic, and health benefits. During your consultation, we’ll discuss your expectations for treatment, evaluate your oral health needs, and complete a CBCT scan and take digital impressions. This information will help us create treatment plans that fit your unique needs, smile goals, and budget. Even if you have extensive bone loss or a compromising medical condition, our oral surgeons have the expertise to provide custom solutions that improve your quality of life.

Using the CBCT scan, impressions, and the proven precision of X-Guide® from X-Nav Technologies, we’ll have custom-fabricated surgical guides made that will assist us during your surgery. X-Guide guided surgery is also interactive, giving us turn-by-turn guidance during surgery to ensure your dental implants are placed in the pre-determined locations in your bone to maximize their primary stability and long-term function. We’ll provide custom sedation or anesthesia for this procedure, so you can remain comfortable and pain-free throughout.

Once your dental implants are secure in your jaw, we’ll use the sophisticated Osstell® ISQ machine to measure the primary stability of each implant. Significantly more precise than an x-ray, this machine ensures that we’re not loading a prosthesis before the dental implants are safely stabilized in the jaw. However, in virtually all cases, we achieve a high ISQ value and can attach a temporary prosthesis the day of your surgery!

Healing after your surgery will take at least three months, during which time the bone will fuse around the dental implants to keep them secure. You’ll experience normal function and aesthetics with your temporary in place during this phase. Once you’ve fully recovered, you’ll return to your restorative dentist’s office to have your final restoration designed and fabricated. Regardless of which full arch solution you choose, this restoration will significantly increase your ability to bite and chew foods, look and feel completely natural, and give your confidence and health a boost! Enjoy the lasting benefits of your full mouth dental implants for years to come!
