TEETH-IN-AN-HOUR™ is a revolutionary concept providing our patients with fully functioning teeth on dental implants in one single procedure that lasts about an hour. This technology was recently developed by Nobel Biocare and allows for collaboration between Dr. Dobbin, the surgeon, and a restorative dentist, (either your dentist or one whom we can recommend to you). This merging of knowledge and experience achieves a more precise implant placement and the ability to leave our office with a permanent, beautiful smile. The computer-guided implant surgery uses the latest technology to ensure comfort after the surgery with less swelling and less bruising. Our patients often resume their normal activities the next day.
The process starts when a CAT scan is taken in our office prior to the procedure. Using this CAT Scan, Dr.Dobbin can “virtually” do the surgery on a 3D model prior to the actual surgery. The results are a quick and easy procedure that gives you a natural smile to last a lifetime.
ALL-ON-4ALL-ON-FOUR is a contemporary restoration that has revolutionized the way surgeons and dentists think of replacing a full set of teeth. Dentures are unsecured prostheses with very limited success. Most often, dentures are painful, inconvenient and unstable. Dentures can make chewing foods difficult and limit the foods that you once enjoyed. Modern dentistry can help with the All-on-4. The All-on-4 treatment concept replaces your missing teeth with a full dental bridge supported by only four dental implants. With less implants needed, overall treatment time and cost is reduced. The unique All-on-4 solution also ensures greater stability in the bone, reducing the need for bone graft surgery to increase bone volume. Typically, a temporary set of teeth can be placed on the same day of surgery. The temporary teeth allow you to lead a normal life immediately after surgery. After a short healing period, your dentist will place the final bridge. Your quality of life is improved, and you can start enjoying your favorite foods again with renewed confidence.
The All-on-4 offers you many advantages.
- A cost effective solution. Your new replacement teeth require only 4 implants for each jaw. With fewer implants required, the cost is lowered.
- Reduced need for bone grafting. The special tilting of two of the implants ensures a secure and stable anchorage for the replaced arch, typically making bone grafting unnecessary.
- Faster treatment and healing time. Your replacement arch can be attached to your implants immediately after insertion.
Scientifically proven and documented. All-on-4 is supported by good clinical outcomes from studies over a decade with favorable results.
