https://pumphreyperio.com/wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=pageTeeth-in-an-Hour™ is a method developed by Nobel Biocare that makes a reality the concept of instant implants for patients with a healthy jawbone. Patients can have the dental implants placed and the restoration or a crown, bridge, or denture fixed in a single appointment.
The keys of the technique are the sophisticated radiographic techniques combined with computer technology to enable precise surgical placement of the implants. Detailed 3D imaging allows our doctors to accurately assess bone structure, map out the areas of best bone integrity, decide the exact position of implants and even create a permanent prosthesis prior to the dental implant surgery.
Since the implants fit exactly into the surgical sites prepared for them, there is little healing time required for the bone to fill in the gap. Implants are ready for immediate function and the restorations can be loaded right away without waiting. These are called immediate load implants. With Teeth-in-an-hour the process is completed, literally, in about one hour and the patient leaves with his or her final teeth at the end of the appointment. The Teeth-in-an-Hour™ procedure can be used for replacements of a single tooth, multiple teeth or all teeth.
Pros and Cons
The advantages of Teeth-in-an-Hour are fairly straightforward and don’t need explanation. Everyone would like to bypass the healing time required for conventional dental implants.
The only real disadvantage is the extra cost imposed by the sophisticated technology involved.
