Teeth-in-an-Hour is an innovative implant placement method that significantly shortens the time between placing implants and attaching the finished restoration. Not only does this process reduce the time frame for replacing teeth, but it ensures patients have a fully functional smile. At Lorton Springfield Dental Implant & Oral Surgery, we are committed to delivering a tooth replacement process that is simple and stress-free.
What is Teeth-in-an-Hour?
Although implant placement and tooth restoration occur over a very short time period, the preparation for teeth-in-an-hour takes a few weeks. Before we begin the process, we must first determine if this method is the best solution for your situation. Because prosthetics are fabricated before the placement procedure, they may need minor adjustment to guarantee a secure fit. This treatment option is available to anyone with missing teeth, whether you are an adult or senior. You can upgrade your current set of dentures to be permanently placed on implants as well.
We use an on-site CBCT scanner to create a virtual model of your smile, allowing us to develop a 3-D diagram of dental structures. We utilize these detailed images to develop surgical guides that show precisely where implants need to be placed. This ensures accuracy and safety during the surgical procedure. Once the titanium implants have been placed, the permanent replacement teeth are attached. Provided each step goes as planned, the whole process can take less than an hour.
Am I a Good Candidate for Teeth-in-an-Hour?
Good candidates for teeth-in-an-hour have a strong and healthy jawbone that will support implants and heal properly. If you have been missing teeth for any length of time, and have not had implants placed, there is a chance that your jawbone will have shrunk to the point where teeth-in-an-hour isn’t an ideal solution unless bone grafting is performed. At Lorton Springfield Dental Implant & Oral Surgery, we have an array of services that can restore your bone and soft tissue to optimal health, which will allow you to receive our innovative dental implant treatments.
