There is more than one approach to replacing your natural teeth. Whether they’ve been worn out and removed or if you lost your teeth as the result of an accident, Teeth in an Hour is a solution worth considering. Here are some basics you should know about this approach and why it may be the ideal solution for you.
What Is Teeth in an Hour?
Teeth in an Hour is a relatively new approach to replacing full sets of teeth. The process involves inserting a limited number of implants into the upper and lower jaws, then anchoring a dental plate to those implants. The result is what appears to be a full and healthy set of upper and lower teeth.
How Is the Procedure Done?
Testing is done in advance to ensure the patient is a good candidate for Teeth in an Hour. That includes confirming that the bone is sturdy enough to support the implants. Once that’s determined, the dental team inserts the implants at strategic points along the upper or lower jaw. Once they are in place, a temporary dental plate is attached. It will remain in place until a customized permanent plate is prepared.
Patients are usually qualified for the procedure in advance. On the day of the actual dental work, everything can be done in as little as an hour.
Does It Really Only Take a Few Hours?
As hard as it may seem, it is possible for Teeth in an Hour to be completed within a single hour. Depending on the specifics of the patient’s condition, it could take a little more time. In any event, you can enter the dental office with no teeth and emerge with a full set in a very short period of time.
Will My Recovery Take Long?
One of the nice things about Teeth in an Hour is that the patient’s recuperative period is a short one. With only a few implants to insert into the bone, you can expect the healing to take place rapidly. Within a week, you should be healed and your permanent plates will be installed.
