Dental implants have been the standard for replacing missing teeth for many years. But typically, the process of getting dental implants has taken months to complete due to a multi-step process that require your jaw and gums to heal between steps. But we've made significant advances in this technology; we can now circumvent the long wait time with a process known as Teeth in an Hour.
We start by taking CT scans and using 3D design software to create customized individual crowns or full or partial dentures. This can be done before any teeth have been removed. Then an expert in implants at Dental Partners of Boston will perform the extraction and installation process. The actual placement of implants is computer guided to take full advantage of the strength of your existing jaw bone. The surgery is extremely accurate, safe, and virtually painless.
Not every patient will be right for this procedure; an assessment will need to be completed to determine if your bone mass can support the implants and to check for severe periodontal disease. However, if you would be a candidate for standard dental implants, you will generally be a candidate for Teeth in an Hour.
