Nobel Biocare refutes criticism voiced by Swedish scientists, saying its implant product 'teeth-in-an-hour' is a scientifically proven concept with high success rates.

The Swiss-Swedish implant maker said that one of its "ongoing studies with 19 patients and a total of 118 implants shows that after three years, 96.3 percent of all implants still function".

The complete report will be available in April, it said.

The group's statement came in reaction to a study by Sweden's Karolinska Institute published on Saturday saying that its Teeth-in-an-Hour implant system may carry more risk of complications than conventional methods.
