What is the Atlantis Conus Concept?

The Atlantis Conus Concept integrates advanced conometric design with parallel conical abutments, creating a stable and removable prosthetic solution. This system uses conically shaped abutments that fit precisely into corresponding copings, providing a frictional fit that ensures the prosthesis remains securely in place without the need for adhesives or clasps.

Benefits of the Atlantis Conus Concept

  • Exceptional Stability: The conometric fit provides superior stability, preventing movement and enhancing comfort during daily activities like eating and speaking.
  • Improved Oral Hygiene: The removable nature of the prosthesis allows for easy cleaning, ensuring better oral hygiene compared to fixed solutions.
  • Enhanced Comfort: The absence of retention elements and the precise fit of the abutments and copings reduce pressure points and irritation, resulting in greater comfort.
  • Natural Aesthetics: The design mimics the appearance and function of natural teeth, offering a more natural look and feel.
  • Restored Functionality: Patients can enjoy improved chewing efficiency and clearer speech, enhancing their overall quality of life.
  • Versatility: The Atlantis Conus Concept is suitable for a wide range of clinical situations, making it a versatile option for many patients.

The Atlantis Conus Concept Procedure

The process of restoring your smile with the Atlantis Conus Concept involves several steps:

  1. Initial Consultation: During your initial consultation, Dr. Schlueter or Dr. Boszko will evaluate your oral health, discuss your treatment goals, and determine if the Atlantis Conus Concept is the right solution for you.
  2. Treatment Planning: A detailed treatment plan will be created, including digital impressions and imaging to ensure precise placement of the conical abutments and the custom-designed prosthesis.
  3. Placement of Implants: Dental implants will be strategically placed in the jawbone to provide a stable foundation for the Atlantis Conus Concept. The number of implants will depend on your specific needs and the condition of your jawbone.
  4. Healing Period: A healing period of several months may be necessary to allow the implants to integrate with the jawbone. During this time, a temporary prosthesis may be provided.
  5. Fitting the Abutments: Once the implants have fully integrated, the parallel conical abutments will be placed. These abutments are designed to fit precisely with the copings on the prosthesis.
  6. Prosthesis Placement: The custom-designed prosthesis will be fitted onto the abutments, ensuring a secure and comfortable fit. Adjustments will be made as necessary to achieve optimal aesthetics and function.
