dental implant technology has been available
for a few years now and has become extablished
as an extremely popular procedure with dental
practices that offer leading edge technologies.
Problems - New Solutions by Nobel Biocare
Immediate load or same day implants have been
the procedure of choice by discriminating
patients who seek near perfection in the replacement
of teeth that assures optimal dental function
and a natural appearing cosmetic result.
Becoming a candidate for same-day-implants
requires however optimal bone structures
of the maxilla (upper jaw) and mandible
(lower jaw). When bone structures are ample,
the implant devices integrate extremely
well, offering the long term endurance that
is unsurpassed by other procedures.
A popular treatment
for deficient or inadequate bone structures
is the use of bone grafts. This procedure
nonetheless can forestall the final placement
of implants because integration must take
place between old bone and the newer bone
graft material. The graft material itself
may be natural or synthetic.... each having
different properties that best suit a particular
patient need. Unfortunately, bone grafts
can fail for a variety of reasons that are
impossible to predict. In some instances,
bone grafting is sometimes sought as a procedure
of "hope" by patients. Some succeed...
while others fail.
In An Hour is a new protocol that allows patients
to leave the office with fixed teeth in less
an one hour.
• The initial clinical evaluation -- Understanding
the problem, making the diagnosis based on
clinical exam and x-rays and discussion of
treatment options, including Teeth In An HourTM.
• Treatment plan -- A formal printed plan
is reviewed in conjunction with standardized
• Prototype teeth – Your existing dentures
are evaluated. New dentures may be required
to determine the degree of facial support
and establish an esthetic smile.
• Scanning denture -- A duplicate scanning
denture is constructed. This device mimics
the prototype denture.
• iCat CT scan --A CT scan of the patient's
jaw wearing the scanning denture is completed
using our low-radiation iCat machine. Following
the patient scan, a second scan is performed
on the denture alone.
• Data conversion -- Digital files from the
iCat scans are reformatted using the Nobel
Biocare Procera System software. The software
converts the CT data into a three-dimensional
image of the jaw and denture.
• Virtual surgery --The surgeon/prosthodontist
performs virtual surgery on the 3D image.
The file from this virtual surgery is then
transmitted through the internet for fabrication
of the surgical guide.
• Robotics -- At a robotics facility, the
data files containing the surgical plan are
used to three-dimensionally reconstruct the
patient's jaws. A special surgical guide is
then constructed to assist the surgeon with
implant installation. The guide and all necessary
surgical components are carefully packaged
and express shipped to Prosthodontics Intermedica.
• Fabrication of teeth -- Using the surgical
guide and the models of the jaws, the final
set of teeth are fabricated in the laboratory.
• Final inspection -- Upon completion of the
laboratory work, the surgeon/prosthodontist
examines the shape and size of the teeth and
checks the components for accuracy before
scheduling the patient for actual surgery.
• The one surgical visit -- The implants and
teeth are surgically installed with the aid
of the computer generated materials, usually
with only local anesthesia. The surgical procedure
requires no incision, no sutures and little
post-operative swelling or discomfort. The
Teeth In An Hour surgery and your new esthetically
pleasing smile usually takes less than sixty
minutes to complete.
AM I A CANDIDATE?
Teeth In An Hour is currently being used
for patients who wish to replace their dentures
with permanent teeth. The fast-moving pace
of modern dental technology allows for a
single tooth, a partial denture or a complete
denture to be replaced. This will enable
more patients to experience the joy of new
self-esteem, the natural result of an attractive
smile. The final determination will be made
by the surgeon/prosthodontist when the patient
has been fully evaluated.
DOES IT HURT?
Dental implants and the creation of a prosthetic
smile can be accomplished with minimal or
no discomfort using local anesthesia; however,
for patients who suffer from apprehension
or anxiety, our board certified anesthesiologists
provide gentle assistance, allowing our
patients to wake up with a beautiful new
As with all extensive dental treatment,
some patients will experience tenderness
in the mouth, mild swelling or the appearance
of slight facial bruising for several days
following the procedure. The use of ice
packs and normal dosages of standard pain
medication generally allows patients to
be quite comfortable through this brief
We use special software to perform “virtual
surgery” on your CT-Scan. When complete,
the surgical guide is fabricated.
CAT Scan Science and Modern Dentistry
our clinics, Nobel Biocare has incorpated
the magic of CAT Scans (Computed Axial
Tomography) and biomedical engineering
in the dental sciences that accurately
assesses the condition and overall integrity
of the jaw structure and maps out the
areas of best integrity.
CAT Scans totally eliminate the guess
work on determining what parts of the
jaw bone offer the best sites for implant
placement. Many doctors however don't
possess the techology to accurately
drill into an implant site, thereby
creating, in some situations, cantilevered
implants. The restoration process, or
placement of the crown, can accommodate
an angled implant... but the implant
may cause other oral health problems
later. To overcome the possibility of
creating a poor placement, Nobel Biocare
has created a CAD/CAM engineered device
called the NobelGuide? that is created
from the primary CAT
a revolutionary treatment planning and
surgical implementation system enabling
us to transfer extraoral planning into
your mouth with unrivaled accuracy and
ease. With NobelGuide™ the placing
of the implant, abutment and restorative
crown or bridge is simultaneous. In
practice, this means beautiful teeth
for your patients in just one visit.

drilling guides, virtually removes the
concern of inaccurate drilling.

precision of the computer guided surgery template
(NobelGuide) now allows a procedure called
"teeth-in-an-hour™”. The teeth-in-an-hour™
procedure is exclusively for patients with
no teeth. Based on the CT-scan, the implants
are placed virtually on the computer. A drilling
guide is designed. A model is made with the
exact location of the future implants.
||On the day of surgery the
template is placed on your jaw structure.
The implants are then placed through the guide
and on to the titanium framework. The NobelGuide™
is removed when all implants are placed. The
whole process takes about an HOUR (Thus teeth
in an hour).
