TEETH-IN-AN-HOUR™ is a revolutionary concept providing patients with fully functioning teeth on dental implants in one single procedure. This technology was developed by Nobel Biocare gaining FDA approval circa 2002 and allows for collaboration between both the restorative doctor and the surgeon. This merging of knowledge and surgical experience achieves not only increased safety, but also a more precise implant placement. In addition, the fabrication of a final prosthesis is completed prior to the surgery. This revolutionary procedure replaces all your teeth in the upper or lower jaw in one appointment.
The process starts when a CAT scan is taken in my office of the patient’s jawbone. This CAT scan allows for the generation of a three-dimensional model of the jawbone that can then be used in virtual reality software to plan the implant placement without the presence of the patient. The results are more accurate implant placement, and less chair time for the patient at the surgery office.
