Teeth In A Day
TEETH-IN-A-DAY is a revolutionary concept providing patients with fully functioning teeth on dental implants in one single procedure that lasts several hours. This technology was recently developed by Nobel Biocare and allows for collaboration between both the restorative doctor and the surgeon. This merging of knowledge and experience achieves not only increased safety, but also a more precise implant placement. In addition, the fabrication of a temporary prosthesis is completed prior to the surgery.
The process starts when a CT scan is taken of the patient’s jawbone. This CT scan allows for the generation of a three-dimensional model of the jawbone that can then be used in virtual reality software to plan the implant placement without the presence of the patient. The results are more accurate implant placement, and less chair time for the patient at the surgery office.
