|Immediate load dental implant technology has been
available for a few years now and has become extablished as
an extremely popular procedure with dental practices that offer
leading edge technologies.
Problems - New Solutions by Nobel Biocare
Immediate load or same day implants have been the procedure
of choice by discriminating patients who seek near perfection
in the replacement of teeth that assures optimal dental function
and a natural appearing cosmetic result.
Becoming a candidate for same-day-implants
requires however optimal bone structures of the maxilla (upper
jaw) and mandible (lower jaw). When bone structures are ample,
the implant devices integrate extremely well, offering the
long term endurance that is unsurpassed by other procedures.
A popular treatment for deficient or inadequate
bone structures is the use of bone grafts. This procedure
nonetheless can forestall the final placement of implants
because integration must take place between old bone and the
newer bone graft material. The graft material itself may be
natural or synthetic.... each having different properties
that best suit a particular patient need. Unfortunately, bone
grafts can fail for a variety of reasons that are impossible
to predict. In some instances, bone grafting is sometimes
sought as a procedure of "hope" by patients. Some
succeed... while others fail.
CAT Scan Science and Modern Dentistry
clinics, Nobel Biocare has incorpated the magic f CAT
Scans (Computed Axial Tomography) and biomedical engineering
in the dental sciences that accurately assesses the
condition and overall integrity of the jaw structure
and maps out the areas of best integrity.
These CAT Scans totally eliminate the guess work ondetermining
what parts of the jaw bone offer the best sites for
implant placement. Many doctors however don't possess
the techology to accurately drill into an implant site,
thereby creating, in some situations, cantilevered implants.
The restoration process, or placement of the crown,
can accommodate an angled implant... but the implant
may cause other oral health problems later. To overcome
the possibility of creating a poor placement, Nobel
Biocare has created a CAD/CAM engineered device called
the NobelGuide? that is created from the primary CAT
|This is a revolutionary treatment planning
and surgical mplementation system enabling us to transfer
extraoral planning into your mouth with unrivaled accuracy
and ease. With NobelGuide™ the placing of the implant,
abutment and restorative crown or bridge is simultaneous.
In practice, this means beautiful teeth for your patients
in just one visit.
• Easy, safe and predictable
• No healing time required prior to functioning
|The major benefit you is the incredible accuracy of
implant lacement compared to "freehand" implant
placement. The NobelGuide system, via analysis of computerized
imaging and subsequent development of implant drilling
guides, virtually removes the concern of inaccurate drilling.

|The incredible precision
of the computer guided surgery template (NobelGuide) now allows
a procedure called "teeth-in-an-hourTM”. The teeth-in-an-hourTM
procedure is exclusively for patients with no teeth. Based on
the CT-scan, the implants are placed virtually on the computer.
A drilling guide is designed. A model is made with the exact
location of the future implants.
|On the day of surgery the template is
placed on your jaw structure. The implants are then placed through
the guide and on to the titanium framework. The NobelGuideTM
is removed when all implants are placed. The whole process takes
about an HOUR (Thus teeth in an hour).
