Dentistry is ever-changing with exciting new technologies and innovative solutions to maximize your comfort while also improving the look, feel, and health of your teeth. Recently, there have been advancements resulting in a new form of restorative dentistry called hybrid fixed dentures.
What Are Hybrid Fixed Dentures?
Hybrid fixed dentures are a combination of dentures with the added permanent function of dental implants. This type of dental procedure takes traditional dentures and uses dental implants to fuse the denture to your jawbone. Hybrid fixed dentures are not removed on a daily basis like conventional dentures. They are fixed and removed only by your dentist for servicing or professional cleaning. The end result is a natural-looking smile that also functions as if they are your natural teeth.
When to Choose Hybrid Fixed Dentures
This type of procedure is life-changing and will transform your mouth’s appearance as well as your dental health. Hybrid fixed dentures are not for everyone, though. This procedure is best suited for patients that are missing multiple teeth or have suffered significant bone loss in their jawbone. With hybrid fixed dentures, the gum tissue is replaced, making your teeth regain most of their original bite strength and chewing capabilities.
If you are missing multiple teeth on the top or bottom of your mouth, this is a more affordable option compared to individual implants and crowns. Rather than individually replacing each missing tooth, hybrid restoration only requires four to six implants for a row of teeth. The denture adheres to the installed implants, creating a seamless smile.
Benefits of Dental Hybrid Restoration
Choosing dental hybrid restoration to transform your mouth includes various benefits such as:
- Precision: Hybrid restoration is extremely advanced and requires technology along with a team of dentists to carry out this procedure. This means there is a high level of precision, meaning your dentures will be secured to your mouth, with no room for shifting. Using the best technology, rest easy knowing this safe procedure provides a beautiful smile.
- Restores Chewing Capabilities: Having a full set of teeth is important for proper chewing, speaking, and the movement in your jaw. Missing teeth negatively affects your ability to carry out all of these activities. With hybrid restoration, your bite can be restored to 80-90% of your original chewing capabilities.
- Natural Looking Smile: Choosing dental hybrid restoration will result in a natural-looking smile and one that feels comfortable. Hybrid fixed dentures secure the denture to your mouth with implants, meaning it will appear and feel like your permanent smile. You’ll have an entire row of teeth installed with hybrid dentures.
