Teeth In An Hour All on Four  Implants Edward Brant Question:
I am missing three of my molars, two on the right and one on the left.

Would I be a candidate for the "teeth in an hour" procedure? ... Visitor from NY

Not everybody is a candidate for Teeth in an Hour. Bone quality, bone quantity and the patient's ability to open wide for the implant guide comes into play.

In addition, the back parts of the mouth can generate high forces on newly placed implants which can risk early failure. The use of immediate load temporary restorations in this area of the mouth needs to be considered very carefully. The back parts of the mouth do not normally make good candidates for immediate temporization.

Typically, we wait 2-3 months after the implants are placed before starting the post and crown part of the implant procedure. The additional waiting time is usually beneficial when compared to the consequences of early failure because the implants were "used too fast".
