A-Dental Center offers two different categories of Hybrid Implant Restorations
(prosthetics that are supported by screws throughout the entire arch).
Full-arch dental implants (also called hybrid implant-based bridges or dentures) are an alternative to conventional dentures, providing a permanent solution to missing teeth. Keeping in mind the various limitations and drawbacks of conventional removable dentures, today’s dentistry offers dental implants integrated in the design of the denture, enhancing retention, support, and stability purposes. If you have teeth that you do not want to be removed but are experiencing significant bone loss, hybrid dentures may be the solution you are looking for.
With proper care, a fixed hybrid denture supported by implants and fixed into place can last the rest of your life.
Restoring Your Smile With Fixed Hybrid Dentures
Overall, fixed hybrid dentures offer improved quality of life, confidence, greater eating options, and the same care that someone would give to their natural teeth.
All-On-4 Fixed Hybrid Dentures combine the strength of dental implants with permanent, custom-made dentures, providing for the restoration of a smile, regardless if one or both arches of teeth are missing. Because All-On-4 implants do not cover the roof of the mouth, you get to enjoy the natural flavors of food, and can more easily chew. Many patients forget that they are wearing a hybrid denture, because it feels, functions, and looks like your natural teeth. With the advent of dental implants and decades of refinement, we can now connect a prosthetic denture over the implants, thereby giving patients restored esthetics, function, and comfort.
All-on-4 Versus All-on-6 Hybrid Dentures
At A-Dental Center, we are capable of using just as few as four implants to support a full-arch prosthesis that mimics the appearance and feeling of long-lasting dental bridges. With the All-On-4 procedure, the idea is that you only need to use four dental implants per arch to securely support your custom-made denture prosthesis; however, some patients may need to have an All-On-6 version of this procedure or even more dental implants, to get the best results. Compared with traditional implants, which are placed to replace individual missing teeth (1 implant for each tooth), All-On-4/6 uses implants at specific locations and angles to deliver a force across an entire arch, which allows for full-arch dentures (4 to 6 implants for an entire full-arch of teeth).
Ensuring Maximum Comfort and Function
It is usually more beneficial for patients who have lost all their teeth in the upper and/or lower jaws to replace them using dental implants supported by a fixed, hybrid denture rather than having a single dental implant for each missing tooth. Once four titanium implants are secured, abutments are attached so that your replacement teeth can be secured and adjusted for maximum comfort and function, giving you an entirely new, radiant smile.
Fixed prosthetics for the restoration of an entirely edentulous arch using four implants may be made of rigid metal usually titanium bonded to the resilient and durable resin that is lightweight and highly polishable achieving beautiful esthetics. Fixed implants supported hybrid bridges with teeth have been developed as a better technique to reconstruct a complete arch in both upper and lower jaws.
Unlike fixed implant-supported bridges, hybrid prosthetics replace missing heights in the adipose area with pinkish-colored resin used to support teeth. Both metal and acrylic resin bridge components are fused, making it a superior choice for restoring the function and esthetics of an entire edentulous arch. All-On-4/6 fixed hybrid dentures can also be used to restore one or more missing teeth in the dental arch.
The combination of these two materials gives you strength, durability, and aesthetics that will last for years.
Our dentists at A-Dental Center in North Hollywood CA are highly experienced in restoring teeth with All-On-4/6 fixed hybrid dentures and can help you achieve a functional, beautiful smile that will make you look and feel your best.
Frequently Asked Questions About All-on-4 Fixed Hybrid Dentures
Q1: What is the procedure for getting All-on-4 Fixed Hybrid Dentures?
The All-on-4 Fixed Hybrid Denture procedure begins with an initial consultation and examination to assess your oral health. The dentist will then plan the treatment using 3D imaging technology and prepare your mouth for the implants. The procedure typically involves local anesthesia and may be completed in one session. After the implantation, a temporary prosthetic is attached to the implants, which are left to heal and integrate with the bone. Once the healing process is complete, the final fixed hybrid denture is fabricated and attached to the implants.
Q2: How do I maintain my All-on-4 Fixed Hybrid Dentures?
Maintaining your All-on-4 Fixed Hybrid Dentures involves regular brushing and flossing, as you would with natural teeth. It is also necessary to schedule regular check-ups with your dentist so they can monitor the implants and ensure the prosthetics are in good condition. Despite their durability, the acrylic parts of the denture may wear down over time and might need to be replaced.
Q3: Are All-on-4 Fixed Hybrid Dentures a suitable choice for everyone?
While All-on-4 Fixed Hybrid Dentures can provide many benefits, they may not be the best choice for everyone. Factors such as bone density, oral health, and overall health conditions can affect the success of the procedure. It’s important to discuss your medical history with your dentist during the initial consultation to determine if this procedure is the right option for you.
