Teeth In An Hour™
Teeth in an Hour™ is an advanced dental implant surgery technique that incorporates 3-Dimensional computer based imaging and a customized drilling template for high precision implant placement by flapless surgery, and immediate insertion of a pre-fabricated fixed prosthesis. Dr. Hartman is pleased to offer GALILEOS 3D Cone Beam Imaging from Sirona as part of your treatment plan.
It is estimated that 35 million Americans are missing all of their teeth in one or both jaws. A study by the Harvard School of Dental Medicine estimates that this edentulous population will continue to grow until its peak in 2020 at nearly 38 million Americans.
Studies show that implant supported teeth offer a vastly improved quality of life, improved nutritional state, more healthy bone and gum tissue, and an overall higher social and psychological well being when compared to conventional dentures.
Teeth in an Hour vs. Removable Dentures
A generally accepted value among removable prosthodontic faculty is that a lower full denture only restores about 10% of function compared to natural teeth. However, an implant supported fixed bridge allows this patient to function at 90% of their potential capacity compared to having all of their lower teeth. Not only can this transformation take place within an hour, but it is also among the most predictable procedures in dentistry.
People who are missing teeth, or who are using dentures, settle for what they can eat. Individuals choose Teeth in an Hour™ so that they can choose to eat what they want with confidence!
