Are you unhappy with your current dentures? Do they not stay in place? Is it difficult to eat with them? Is your speech altered? Is your taste not the same? Adjusting to dentures may be very difficult and a source of much anxiety and embarrassment.
Traditional removable dentures are not your only solution. Dental Implants can help you by supporting a more secure and stable replacement for teeth.
The “hybrid denture” is referred to as a hybrid because it combines the advantages of a fixed replacement with those of a removable denture. A hybrid denture requires placing five or more dental implants in the jaw. In most cases a temporary denture is essentially screwed into the dental implants on the same day of dental implant placement (teeth in one day). After the dental implants have completely healed (usually 4-6 months), a final hybrid denture is fabricated and inserted which is more durable and esthetic in nature. The hybrid denture is fixed and is only able to be removed by your general dentist–which will be seldomly done.
