Can I Receive Teeth in an Hour?

Before providing this service, our St. Louis implant dentist thoroughly examines your smile at a consultation appointment. As this procedure is specialized, there are specific criteria that make patients a good candidate, including:

·       Adequate bone to place implants without bone grafting

·       Patients who cannot tolerate dentures or partials comfortably

·       The need to rejuvenate the face and obtain a youthful smile

Preparatory treatments can include fabrication of temporary dentures used to help place the implants and provide an immediate bridge on the implants. With advanced imaging, we determine if you are a candidate for this treatment by planning treatment on a computer before surgery is scheduled.  This technology reduces surgical treatment and ensures a better outcome for teeth in an hour.

After determining you are an excellent candidate for same-day implants, our team schedules your single appointment for implant surgery and attaching a temporary restoration. Dr. Duello utilizes a CBCT machine, or 3D scanner, specialized software to determine the best location for all necessary implant posts.

Dr. Duello will have your temporary prosthetic ready at the time of implant placement and affixes it to your smile immediately after the implant posts have been carefully placed. You will leave our office with a beautiful and healthysmile in one visit!

Even though the entire procedure is completed in one day, we understand patients may become anxious. To increase your comfort, we offer various methods of sedation dentistry. For more information about these services, click the tab for sedation dentistry.

Candidates For Teeth In An Hour

Teeth In An Hour is currently being used for patients who wish to replace their dentures with permanent teeth. The fast-moving pace of modern dental technology allows for a single tooth, a partial denture or a complete denture to be replaced. This will enable more patients to experience the joy of new self-esteem, the natural result of an attractive smile. The final determination will be made by the surgeon/prosthodontist when the patient has been fully evaluated.

What Is The Cost For Teeth In An Hour?

Dental implant treatment by its very nature is a big investment. To be accomplished, it requires a skilled experienced professional who will work with you to develop a highly customized treatment plan. The equipment is technologically sophisticated, the materials are intricate and valuable, and all of this is subject to meticulous sterile detail.

Still, Teeth In An Hour™ can be less costly than more traditional dental implant treatment. This is because it significantly reduces the time commitment for both the patient and the doctor. Most patients who prioritize their smile and opt for dental implant treatment regard the cost as a worthwhile lifetime investment. Unlike the rest of the human body, the virtual "youth" of the mouth can be preserved right up through the age of one hundred. The concept of eating well for all of one's lifetime while sporting a timeless smile spurs many to "bite" from the Fountain of Youth.

Does The Teeth In An Hour Procedure Hurt?

Dental implants and the creation of a prosthetic smile can be accomplished with minimal or no discomfort using local anesthesia; however, for patients who suffer from apprehension or anxiety, our board certified anesthesiologists provide gentle assistance, allowing our patients to wake up with a beautiful new smile.

As with all extensive dental treatment, some patients will experience tenderness in the mouth, mild swelling or the appearance of slight facial bruising for several days following the procedure. The use of ice packs and normal dosages of standard pain medication generally allows patients to be quite comfortable through this brief healing period.

Emergency Smile Restoration with Implants

In some cases patients may fracture one tooth in an accident or it may break off during eating. Many times the tooth breaks off at the least opportune time.  Don’t panic-we can see you for an emergency surgery to replace the fractured tooth with an immediate implant and temporary crown.  You don’t have to walk around with a dark space in the front of your mouth.  If you’ve had a tooth that was completely knocked out in an accident or was severely broken and cannot be restored, Dr. Duello offers emergency, implants to repair your smile in one visit.
