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 and the time for healing between steps. However, there have been significant advances in dental implants. We can now cut back the long wait time with a process known as TEETH-IN-AN-HOUR™ and produce amazing results.

What Is TEETH-IN-AN-HOUR™?
TEETH-IN-AN-HOUR™ is a revolutionary procedure allowing patients to receive dental implants in the same visit when their unhealthy teeth are removed. Patients with a healthy jawbone can receive immediate dental implants and prosthetic teeth with full function that look just like your natural teeth.
Traditionally, the dental implant process can include several steps depending on your individual situation.
- Removal of unhealthy teeth
- Healing of gums and bone tissue
- If needed, bone regeneration procedures, which can take months
- Placement of implants
- The implant fuses with the bone, which can take several more months
- Installation of prosthetic teeth
If you qualify for TEETH-IN-AN-HOUR™, all these steps can be either foregone or completed in a single visit with your dentist.
How Is the Procedure Performed?
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 implant dentist 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 and safe.
Is TEETH-IN-AN-HOUR™ Right for You?
Not every patient will be right for this procedure. There is an assessment of your bone mass to determine if it can support the implants and to check for severe periodontal disease. However, a candidate for standard dental implants, is generally a candidate for TEETH-IN-AN-HOUR™.
