It’s been said that more dentures can be found in their rightful owner’s bedside drawer than in their mouth. In fact, eight out of every 10 denture wearers experience problems with the fit and function of their prosthesis. It is known that loss of all teeth causes disability for most people who wear conventional dentures because they have difficulty performing two of the essential tasks of life, eating and speaking (1).
… Atlas® Denture Comfort™ Implants (Dentatus) were developed in conjunction with New York University College of Dentistry, (NYUCD) Department of Implant Dentistry to be a simple and affordable alternative to conventional implant-supported dentures.
The ATLAS ‘Why’
- Simple and effective one stage procedure
- Implants available in 1.8,2.2, 2.4 & 2.8 diameters and are placed in thin atrophic ridges without need for grafting procedures
- No housings or adhesives are needed
- No o-rings required
- High patient satisfaction,
- Affordable solution
The ATLAS Quick-stage Technique
- Patients should be anesthetized with local infiltration.
- The needlepoint CePo™ Pilot drill is used to the desired implant length.
- A reamer corresponding to the implant size is then used to enlarge the osteotomy to the desired size of the final implant.
- The 4 Implants are seated flush with the ridge using a manual driver or ratchet.
- The denture base is prepared with a series of specially designed burs creating a seam-line undercut and adequate space for the implant heads.
- The Tuf-Link resilient liner is dispensed into the denture base and on the implant heads, then placed into the mouth.
- The denture should be maintained without movement for 6-7 minutes
- The liner is then placed back into the denture base with gentle finger pressure.
- The implants are immediately loaded and patients are instructed to wear the denture for 10-14 days without removal, except for cleaning to prevent edema of the tissue.
