  • TEETH-IN-AN-HOUR™ is a revolutionary concept providing patients with fully functioning teeth on dental implants in a single procedure that takes about an hour.
  • This technology was developed by Nobel Biocare and utilizes collaboration between both the restorative doctor and the oral surgeon.
  • This merging of knowledge and 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.
  • The computer-guided implant surgery is done in an arthroscopic fashion without requiring any flap reflection.
  • This benefits the patient in that there is less postoperative discomfort, less swelling, and less bruising.
  • Patients can often resume their normal activities the next day.

  • The process begins when a CAT scan is taken 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 with virtual reality software to plan the implant placement without the presence of the patient.
  • The temporary teeth allow you to lead a normal life immediately after surgery. After a short healing period, your dentist will place the final bridge.
  • The results are a more accurate implant placement and less chair time for the patient.
