Traditionally, the procedure had been performed in two steps. The dentist began by
installing the implants, which were left for three to six months to heal and integrate
with the jawbone. During the healing period, the patient was given a temporary
denture until the permanent teeth could be put in place in the next stage.
Today, modern implant design and state-of-the-art surgical techniques allows most
patients to have fixed teeth fitted within a few days from the surgery.
To get it right, a detailed work-up is done before the surgery to design your smile.
After the implants are placed, teeth are set in wax in Madame Tussauds style, and
tried in your mouth for aesthetic fine-tuning. You get to approve your teeth before we
A small percentage of patients may need to improve the volume or quality of their
bone with bone grafting prior to the placement of implants in a staged approach.
What is Immediate Function™?
Historically implants have been associated with a time consuming surgical procedure. This is no longer the case with Nobel Biocare implants. In most situations they can be inserted and used immediately, based on a refined treatment protocol and a unique implant surface.
Nobel Biocare has made implant treatment easy. The benefits of Immediate Function are shortened treatment time, better clinical efficiency and less trauma to the patient - it is now possible to go from suffering from tooth loss to having functional and esthetic teeth in one treatment session.
||FDA clearance and documentation
Nobel Biocare is the first company with FDA clearance for Immediate Function on our implant systems for all indications. The procedure is clinically documented by several independent studies, covering all oral regions, showing high success rates. The single most important factor for the success is the unique TiUniteT implant surface.
||A standard procedure
Immediate Function is for every clinician comfortable with implant treatment. But as for any treatment modality there are different skill levels required for different situations. Today several clinics have adopted this rewarding concept and treat 80-90% of their patients with Immediate Function, to the benefit for the patient and the clinic.
