For patients who have lost teeth or who anticipate the need to have teeth extracted, dental implants represent one of the most comfortable, secure, and permanent solutions. One drawback to dental implants is that each implant, or artificial root, must fully fuse with the underlying jawbone, adequately healing before a replacement tooth can be added. This process may take several weeks, even multiple months.
A groundbreaking process called TEETH-IN-AN-HOUR™ changes all of that, creating a way for patients to have dental implants and temporary replacement teeth added at the same time. Minto Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery is pleased to offer this treatment option to our patients in the Fairhope, AL area.
