What is TEETH-IN-AN-HOUR?

TEETH-IN-AN-HOUR™ is a revolutionary concept which provides patients with fully functioning teeth on dental implants in one single procedure which lasts about an hour. This new technology was developed by Nobel Biocare and allows for collaboration between both the restorative doctor and the surgeon. This combination of knowledge and experience achieves not only increased safety, but also a more precise placement of the implant. Additionally, the fabrication of a final prosthesis is completed before the surgery.

What are the Benefits of TEETH-IN-AN-HOUR™?

The computer-guided implant surgery is done in an arthroscopic fashion which benefits the patient. The benefits include:

  • Less postoperative discomfort
  • Less swelling
  • Less bruising
  • Patients can often resume their normal activities the next day

How Does TEETH-IN-AN-HOUR™ Work?

The process begins with a CAT scan of the patient’s jawbone. This CAT scan allows for the generation of a three-dimensional model of the jawbone, which can then be used in virtual reality software to plan the implant placement without the presence of the patient. This results in more accurate implant placement, and less chair time for the patient during surgery.
