With teeth-in-an-hour (computer guided dental implants), it is now possible to have functional and aesthetic implanted teeth in one treatment session, with the benefits of immediate function, shortened treatment time and better clinical efficiency.

'Nobel Guide' from Nobel Biocare enables the transformation of a patient's CT Scan into a three dimensional digitised model. This allows the implantologist to pre-plan the treatment and place the implants safely and accurately using a computer generated surgical stent(fabricated in Sweden).

Most times, the same digitised model can be used to fabricate the actual teeth to be fitted at the same time as the implant surgery.

Teeth-in-an-hourâ is the perfect solution for people that have no teeth (or will have the teeth removed) in either top jaw, bottom jaw, or both. The process is truly remarkable. Historically, patients would have multiple surgeries over the course of 4-9 months to obtain what is now completed in approximately one hour. The process is cutting edge: A CT scan is used with Virtual Reality software to plan the implant placement and fabricate the final bridge (teeth replacement) before the surgery is even performed. This computer guided dental implant surgery is extremely accurate, safe, and allows for virtually painless dental implant treatment, allowing our patients to walk out with beautiful teeth the same day!

How does Teeth in an Hour work?

Using a high tech 3-D (CT) scan of your jaw structure and three-dimensional computer imaging technology, the precise placement of the implant abutments is planned out, and a highly aesthetic non-removable bridge (tooth replacement) is fabricated - all before the short incision-free procedure is ever performed.

Before your appointment, a precise surgical guide is created, and then then implants are placed in a precise position for optimum aesthetics and function. Because the implants fit exactly into the surgical sites created for them, there is no healing time necessary for the bone to fill in around them, and this is why you can function immediately! Since so much time and effort is spent in the planning phase and it is so precise, the actual surgical appointment goes fairly quickly.

The end result for you:

  • Immediate function of your dental implants.
  • Less pain during the appointment and during the post-operative recovery period.
  • A highly esthetic and functional result because of the careful planning.

Steps involved in the Teeth in an Hour process

Initial Consultation The fit and the aesthetics of your denture need to be verified. This denture will be used to design your new set of teeth.

Imaging Visit In seconds, a hi-tech, 3-D scan is performed to gather digital information about your jaw bone.

In The Lab The digital information gathered from the scan is processed by a special planning program to create a 3-D virtual model of your jaw and your removable bridge.

Final Office Visit Once your bridge is fabricated, you return for a one hour incision-free surgery to secure your new set of teeth. Only local anesthesia is needed to numb the tissues. The implant bridge is non-removable and is used as your final bridge.

On the Way Out

Your implants act like natural teeth and help prevent further jaw bone loss, allowing your bone to become stronger and more dense. The computer guided dental implant surgery is extremely accurate, safe, and allows for virtually painless dental implant treatment. Allowing you to walk out with Beautiful Teeth Today.
