Teeth-In-An-Hour™

Sierra Foothills Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery

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 jaw bone. This CAT scan allows for the generation of a three-dimensional model of the jaw bone that can then be used with virtual reality software to plan the implant placement without the presence of the patient. The results are a more accurate implant placement and less chair time for the patient.

Patient Review By Frederick L

Doctor Christensen does very nice work. For the amount of work I had done, I had no issues with recovery. He took the time to explain all the steps and procedures, reviewed the 3D image(s) with me in detail so I was able to understand the condition of the entire affected area. I know good work when I see it, and I really appreciate Doctor Christensen's quality work product! Thanks!
