Sometimes, following disease or injury, a person’s natural teeth are simply too damaged to save. Damage and decay which is irreversible can lead to the loss of all the teeth in one or both jaws, a situation which, in the past, was usually addressed with dentures. But traditional dentures can be uncomfortable, inconvenient, and ultimately ineffective. Fortunately, modern dentistry provides an alternative. If you are suffering from multiple tooth loss in one or both jaws, you may qualify for our Teeth in an Hour treatment.
How it works
With Teeth in an Hour, an entire row of teeth can be replaced with a permanent, non-removable denture secured by dental implants. This denture is sturdy, steady, and will replace your natural, healthy teeth in both aesthetics and function. Although the name “teeth in an hour” is not literal—the procedure can take longer—it does indicate a significant improvement over other processes for installing dental implants, which can take months. Teeth in an Hour are installed in one visit, letting you walk out of our office with a full new row of healthy teeth.
To achieve this speed, most of the work of crafting your new teeth and planning the placement of implants is done before you arrive for your procedure. Using a 3-d scan of your mouth and a computer-aided design and manufacturing process, we produce your new denture before you arrive and install it as soon as any remaining teeth are removed.
Not everyone qualifies for Teeth in an Hour, which relies on a healthy jawbone to support the implants which will secure your new teeth in place. If your tooth loss is due to bone deterioration, or if your immune system is compromised, you may not be able to get Teeth in an Hour. We can advise you about your specific case after an initial exam.
