Beyond DenturesBeyond Dentures
For our patients who are missing multiple or all teeth, dentures are a great option to restore function, aesthetics, and your smile. However, some patients find that they are bothersome to take in and out and would rather have a fixed solution. A hybrid overdenture is a denture that is anchored to the bone with dental implants. It is contains prosthetic teeth and gum tissue.
How many implants will I need?
The mandibular hybrid denture can be fixed on four implants and the maxillary hybrid denture usually requires six.
What is it made of?
Our implant hybrids are constructed of Zirconia. Zirconia is similar to Cubic Zirconia, which is what synthetic diamonds are made of. Zirconia is the strongest, most durable material in dentistry. Unlike acrylic hybrids (also an option), Zirconia is not prone to wear, chipping, and discoloration.
What are the advantages?
- Less irritation to the gums
- Screwed in - no more taking your denture in and out each day
- Increased strength for chewing
- Increased Stability
