From start to finish, replacing missing teeth with dental implants typically took about a year because of multiple procedures and recovery periods. But the 5 in 1 implant surgery method, developed by Dr. Leon Chen, combines all the steps used for implants into one treatment.
For decades, it was believed that patients needed time in between surgeries to heal, but Dr. Chen was determined to prove everything could be done in one visit, with one recovery. As a result, the 5 in 1 technique condenses multiple surgeries into one procedure, making implants available to those who previously were not candidates.
It begins with extracting the damaged tooth. From there, if necessary, a special water-pressure drill is used to lift the sinus and make room for the implant. The area is then filled with bone to ensure the implant will remain sturdy before it is placed.
A temporary plastic crown is made on-site and placed on top of the implant, remaining there until the permanent restoration is ready from the lab. Patients are completely healed within four months, unlike the longer recovery periods of the past.
Today the 5 in 1 technique has become a standard in periodontal implant surgeries, used by dentists all over the world.
