How long have you had teeth missing? A month? A year? Five years? More time than you can remember? If this is you, then how would you like to replace those lost teeth in about one hour? At Piney Point Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Houston, TX, Dr. Steve Koo and Dr. Thomas Weil can do just that. With Teeth-In-An-Hour™, you can have fully functioning teeth on dental implants in a single procedure that only takes about one hour.
People lose teeth for a number of different reasons including:
- Poor oral hygiene
- Severe tooth decay
- Advanced gum disease
- Traumatic injury
- Congenital absence of a tooth
- Root canal therapy failure
Regardless of the reason why you are missing one or more teeth, you can take consolation in knowing that you can have a full smile with Teeth-In-An-Hour.
In Houston, dental implants have long been the ideal tooth replacement option. Dental implants most closely mimic the form and function of one of your natural teeth. With a titanium post that is surgically implanted in the jawbone and a lifelike crown, a dental implants looks, feels and performs like a live tooth.
Teeth-In-An-Hour provides the added advantage of having fully functioning teeth on dental implants minus the healing time that is usually required after implant surgery. This dental technology needs the collaboration between both the restorative dentist and the oral surgeon because it involves placement of dental implants that are loaded with a temporary or permanent prosthesis.
Your new smile with Teeth-In-An-Hour begins with a CAT scan of your jawbone. With this scan, a three-dimensional model of your jaw is created. This is used with virtual reality software to plan the implant placement before you ever show up for surgery. Then, using Computer-Guided Implant Surgery (CT Guided Surgery), our oral surgeons accurately place the implant. That way, you—the patient—spend less time in surgery. The prosthesis, or false tooth, that was fabricated prior to surgery by your dentist can be adapted at the time of surgery to fit perfectly. After the prosthesis is fitted, you’re able to function immediately after the implant surgery and the prosthesis is not removable. So, with Teeth-In-An-Hour, there is less postoperative discomfort, less swelling, and less bruising. Patients can often resume their normal activities the next day.
