Dr. Costa Nicolopoulos, a leading oral and maxillofacial surgeon and an international speaker on dental implants, was one of the featured speakers at the recently concluded Ambulatory Healthcare Services (AHS), an outpatient care concept from the Abu Dhabi Health Care Services (SEHA)-CPD Committee Dental Department, which was held recently at The Millennium Hotel, Abu Dhabi. During the event, Dr. Nicolopoulos spoke on the topic, 'Less graft surgery for more dental implant treatment,' where he shared the revolutionary techniques used at SameDay Dental Implants, the pioneering Dubai-based clinic that was first to offer treatment for dental implants within one day in the Middle East.
Dr. Costa discussed atraumatic surgical techniques used to treat implant patients with suboptimal bone volume in
order to avoid bone grafting procedures at the lecture that was attended by dentists and oral and maxillofacial surgeons. Also speaking at the event was Dr. Petros Yuvanoglu, a Prosthodontist also from SameDay Dental Implants. Dr. Yuvanoglu lectured on the topic, “The prosthetic rehabilitation of dental implants”.
Dr. Costa said: “SameDay Dental Implants uses most modern 3-D digital scans and the latest dental technologies to provide comprehensive treatment for dental implants. Patients can have a single tooth replaced or undergo extensive reconstruction on the same day without the need for a bone graft. It is a painless, fast and efficient procedure which is cost-effective as well as durable.”
