What are hybrid dentures with dental implants?

Hybrid dentures with dental implants are dentures that are installed on dental implants to replace your missing teeth. Since the dentures are installed on implants, dentists use titanium posts in your jaw to serve as artificial tooth roots, helping to stimulate the bone in your jaw and retain your facial structure.

The implants that are installed in your jaws are put in place to support the bar that anchors the artificial teeth in place. Since the bar is permanently fixed in your mouth, the dentures will stay in place and will not be able to move around.

What are the benefits of hybrid dentures vs. traditional dentures?

The biggest benefit of hybrid dentures with dental implants is that it restores your smile. The artificial teeth also look natural, which makes it difficult for people to notice that your teeth are not real. Another benefit is the fact that the dentures in dental implants do not shift in your mouth, making it easy to chew food without worrying about your teeth falling out.

Regular dentures are not implanted into your jaws, which means that they cannot stimulate the bones in your jaw, which could lead to the loss of bone density, which can affect the appearance of your face. With hybrid dentures, you do not have to worry about losing bone density because the four titanium posts attached to your jaw stimulate the bones and keep them in shape.

How hard are hybrid dentures with dental implants to maintain?

Cleaning and keeping your hybrid dentures in good shape is not very difficult. Unlike permanent dentures, which have to be removed nightly and cleaned, you can take care of your hybrid dentures the same way you did with your natural teeth, brushing twice a day and flossing regularly.

Hybrid dentures are also very durable, so you do not have to worry about breaking them. In the event that you do manage to break the dentures, a quick visit to the dentist can get everything fixed, because all that is needed is a replacement titanium post for the damaged post.

How long does the process take?

The procedure will take a few months before it is completed because the titanium fused to your jaws requires some time to heal. Once it is healed, your dentist will finish the process by installing the dentures.

Conclusion

If you have lost a lot of teeth and want to restore your smile, you don’t have to settle for dentures. Talk to your dentist about hybrid denture dental implants and find out if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
