Millions of Americans are missing most or all of their teeth. The old fashioned way to solve missing teeth was to make bulky plastic dentures that rest on the gum tissue. This creates a multitude of problems.
Problems with outdated dentures
- Dentures do not preserve bone
- Poor chewing forces
- Messy denture adhesives
- Dentures moving and slipping
- Sore spots on gum tissue from lose dentures
If you are about to need dentures or already wearing dentures we can create custom hybrid dentures that are fixed onto dental implants.
What Are Hybrid Dentures?
Hybrid dentures are high quality dentures that are fixed on dental implants. Edentulous patients or those who are missing all of their teeth on the upper or lower arch can get a complete set of replacement teeth in a single visit to our Dental Center in Port Orange thanks to hybrid dentures.
The dental implants stimulate and preserve bone levels. This is important as loss of bone causes facial collapse and wrinkles. The hybrid dentures are secured with dental implants and do not move. This allows patients to eat what they want and to laugh spontaneously without worrying their dentures will fall out.
Hybrid Denture Implants
Dental implants are so effective because they fuse with the bone. This characteristic allows patients to choose dental implants as a long-term solution for tooth loss. Hybrid dentures are extremely stable and will not move or fall out. Dental implants allow the denture to lock into place. This eliminates the need for messy denture adhesive. The hybrid implant dentures are extremely comfortable because they are stable. This stability allows patients to eat and enjoy the foods they love (even corn on the cob). The implant dentures stimulate and preserve bone. Bone loss and collapse of the facial contours creates extreme elderly appearance. Dental implant dentures fill out the face and create a natural look of beauty.
Fixed Hybrid Dentures
In edentulous patients, though, the jawbone erodes over time because the patient no longer has tooth roots to hold it in place. That process may increase the chances of dental implant failure. When this erosion occurs, patients can still be candidates for dental implants if they undergo a bone graft prior to implant placement.
Hybrid dentures eliminates the need for that bone graft and the months it adds to the treatment timeline. This approach secures the prosthetic arch using four dental implants strategically placed toward the front of the bone, where erosion progresses most slowly. The implants are also angled underneath the gums, maximizing available bone.
After the implants are in place, patients are fitted with a prosthetic arch of teeth, allowing them to leave our office with a complete, intact smile.
With hybrid dentures, patients also benefit from a shorter post-surgical healing timeline.
Even patients with significant jawbone atrophy following tooth loss can take advantage of hybrid dentures, which puts dental implants in reach of virtually all patients who want them.
