TEETH-IN-AN-HOURâ„¢ is a revolutionary concept providing patients with fully functioning teeth on dental implants in one single procedure that lasts about an hour. The Teeth in an hour concept, developed by Nobel Biocare, allows for collaboration between both the restorative prosthodontist and the implantologist surgeon.


Advantages of NobelGuide and Teeth-in-an-hour:

  • increased safety due to computerized CT Scans and markings
  • enables fabrication of a final prosthesis prior to the surgery
  • possibility for flapless surgery enabling less post operative discomfort, less swelling and less bruising
  • Patients can resume their normal activities the next day

The process starts when a CAT scan is taken that allows the generation of a 3-D model of the jawbone, which can then be used in virtual reality software to plan the implant placement.


Teeth-in-an-hour Dental Implant Procedure

1. Checkup, consultation, treatment planning

Existing teeth and bone condition are first checked to determine if the teeth-in-an-hour dental implant treatment option might be suited for your case.

At BIDC Dental Center, checkup, consultation and treatment planning for dental implant treatment with both our consutling dentist and implantologist are FREE. Contact Us at BIDC Dental Center.

2. Take Panoramic X-ray & CT Scan

A digital panoramic x-ray film is normally taken. For Teeth-in-hour concept, a CT Scan taken of the arches in checking bone condition and for analytical planning.

3. Computerized Planning & CT Scan

Upon delivery of the CT Scan results, an radiographic aligner guide with index markings is done. The CT Scan is repeated and the results inclusive with the jaw marketing are ready. Computer planning programme such as NobelGuide or Simplant are used to plan the dental implant placement surgery.

4. Fabricate Surgical Template and Final Prosthetics

The final marked information is sent to the Nobel Biocare dental laboratory based in the USA for the surgical template and final prosthetics to be made.

5. Dental Implant Placement and Fit Prosthetics

Upon delivery of the surgical template and final prosthetics, the titanium implant post are placed in jaw using the template. The final prosthetics is then fitted onto the dental implant enabling a teet-in-an-hour concept.

All-on-4 and All-on-6 can now also be performed using NobelGuide.
