Getting dental implants used to mean numerous trips to the oral surgeon and a time frame of several weeks or months to complete, from start to finish. The last thing a patient wants to endure when dealing with missing teeth or painful irritation from ill-fitting dentures is a long wait time. At Park Avenue Oral & Facial Surgery, we are pleased to offer a much better solution for our patients called Teeth-in-an-Hour™, a procedure that slashes the wait time to a fraction of what it once was. With this state-of-the-art technology, patients can have permanent dental restorations completed within a day. What’s more, the surgery allows for a faster recovery with less swelling, bruising and post-operative pain than traditional dental implant surgery. The entire procedure can be completed from the comfort and convenience of our Upper East Side office.
How does Teeth-in-an-Hour™ work?
The process begins with taking an I-CAT scan of the patient’s jaw that enables Dr. Ruben Cohen to generate a three-dimensional model of the jawbone. The model, created in a high-tech virtual reality software, allows for an implant to be planned and fabricated without the patient present. Because of the precision and accuracy afforded by this software, it ensures that a perfect-fitting implant will be created that can be placed in one convenient surgery. No fittings or modifications need to be made in between the initial modeling phase/fabrication of the implant and the patient’s surgery day.
On the day of surgery, the patient will undergo general anesthesia so Dr. Cohen can carefully insert the implants and position the newly fabricated teeth in place on top of them. The entire process only takes a few hours to complete and the patient will awake with restored teeth that look, feel and work like their own.
