Dr. Waasdorp with his graduating students and other faculty members.
Dr. Waasdorp and Staff would like to thank everybody who attended Dr. Waasdorp’s presentation last night at the Hilton Hotel on City Avenue in Philadelphia about maintenance of dental implants and treatment of peri-implant disease. It was a pleasure having you all and we greatly enjoyed the evening.
Stayed tuned for upcoming courses!
We are very excited to announce that we now have a cone beam 3D CAT scan machine on site. Dr. Waasdorp’s practice is one of a few facilities in the Philadelphia area that is equipped with this advanced technology that enables us to see a 3 dimensional image of your jawbone prior to commencement of surgery, providing the ability to do the most careful and detailed planning and evaluation. Additionally, we can perform “teeth in a day” and “all-on -four” procedures without the patient needing to travel to a separate facility.
Dr. Waasdorp had some of his students from UPENN shadow him at the office today, watching the most advanced dental implant treatments available. The patient seen here had a failing bridge, and his remaining teeth were infected. Dr. Waasdorp extracted the remaining teeth, placed 5 implants, and gave the patient a fixed temporary to wear while the implants heal. The patient never has to wear a removable prosthesis (denture) with this technique.
Please contact our office if you are interested in dental implants. Dr. Waasdorp has completed extensive advanced training in all aspects of dental implant therapy. We offer revolutionary procedures such as “all-on-four” and other implant restorations where implants and teeth can be placed on the same day!
Have you been told you don’t have enough bone for dental implants or have to undergo advanced bone grafting procedures? Call or email us today to find out how our advanced solutions can give you implants and a set of teeth in one appointment, and eliminate the need for advanced, invasive bone grafting procedures.
Everyone deserves a confident smile. Now, there is no need to settle for anything less. All-On-4 is a non-removable dental implant option designed to maximize the use of available bone on just 4 implants. Plus, you’ll have teeth attached immediately.
After all four implants are placed, a new or existing denture may be used as a temporary set of teeth to be attached. Patients leave the office with teeth in place, ready to smile, laugh, and eat over the 3 to 4 month period of bone-to-implant integration.
Typically, in 3 to 4 months, the implants will be fully secured by the bone. Your temporary teeth are removed and a flattering, final new set are permanently attached.
The fee for All-On-4 treatment is around 20,000 per arch
If you’ve thought about dental implants but didn’t think you could have them, the All-On-4 process is:
