Dr. Yellich was one of the first doctors in the world to place dental implants. He has successfully placed over 10,000 dental implants.
As science and technology developed, the All-On-4 procedure was developed. This is what is commonly referred to as “Teeth In A Day”. Dr. Yellich has successfully completed over 1000 such procedures which has enabled patients to receive a “Full Arch” reconstruction in one day and leave the office with a beautiful, new set of teeth.
As a dental implant patient, your treatment will be dictated by the images from a 3D X-ray (imaging) machine in Dr. Yellich’s office. The benefit of this type of X-ray is that it shows the bone height and width which largely determines the placement and size of the plant dental implant.
Prior to dental implants some patients require bone grafting.
Dr. Yellich and his staff have the optimum procedure for this type of bone grafting that includes the use of the patient’s platelets combined with other bone material enhancing the bone growth process for the patient.
