Traditional dental implant procedures take anywhere from three to six months to complete because several months are needed for the implant to fuse with your jawbone. This process is called Osseo integration. As a result. you would have to wait months from the time your implant is inserted before you could experience the full benefits of the procedure. Now, you can get new teeth in an hour. Fortunately, advances in dental implant technology enable the process to be completed much more quickly. Teeth-in-an-Hour, a dental implant innovation created by Nobel Biocare. Teeth-in-an-Hour eliminates the long wait associated with Osseo integration, enabling us to complete your procedure in hours instead of months. The technique involves taking a CAT scan of the jaw and sending to the Nobel Biocare lab for fabrication of surgical stent and teeth. In 2 – 4 weeks the stent is available and then surgery is done and teeth are replaced on the implant in I hour.
The whole treatment virtually takes place within an hour from the time patient walks in, and out with a brand new set of teeth in just one hours time. 3-D computerized advanced dental technology has arrived just in time to meet the wants and needs of patients who are wearing removable complete dentures to lead better and more confident lifestyles.’Teeth in an Hour’ concept wherein the entire implant surgery as well as the final fixed dental prosthesis is preplanned and ready before the surgery by your dentist’ The entire treatment is planned by the team at on 3-D computer software and then the treatment plan sent to Nobel bio care via internet where a surgical guide stent is fabricated according to the plan. Conventional implant therapy would involve an invasive surgical phase where the gums are cut and bone exposed to bury the implants and finally with overlying sutures. However with this novel approach non -invasive surgeries are performed through holes in (therefore no sutures) eliminating pain ,swelling and more importantly delivering the final fixed teeth within an hour of the treatment.
