April 21, 2015 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
April 21, 2015 - Charlottesville, VA Dr. Ed Akeel is pleased to share that, in June, he will be attending a continuing education course at the Bicon Institution located in Boston, Massachusetts. The three day-long course will offer hands-on training in their facility, concerning preliminary dental implant procedures such as sinus lifts, ridge splitting, and bone grafting.

"I am very excited to attend this course at a very respected and innovative facility," says Dr. Akeel, primary dentist at Dentistry By Design in Charlottesville, Virginia. "Bicon dental implants provide exceptional benefits for patients and I look forward to enhancing patient care by learning more about Bicon's procedures and techniques."

Since 1985, The Bicon System has been designing dental implants that withstand the test of time. The unique design allows for shorter dental implants that include a bacterially-sealed, locking taper. The abutments for the implants are able to rotate 360 degrees, creating additional flexibility and stability. The restorations are also able to be placed in an aesthetically-pleasing way due to the comprehensive engineering the implants possess.

"My passion is providing the best restorative dentistry services to my local patients," adds Dr. Akeel. "Bicon Dental Implants have allowed me to create healthy and beautiful smiles that look and function naturally. Patients can regain their quality of life with a dental implant procedure that will allow them to smile for years."

Dr. Akeel is proud to provide a variety of dental implant procedures, including single tooth replacement, multiple teeth replacement, mini dental implants, and implant-supported dentures and bridges.
