Fixed hybrid bridges are the most common permanent tooth replacement for dental implants when multiple teeth are missing, either on the upper or lower jaw.
The Implant-Supported Fixed Hybrid Zirconia Bridge usually requires about 6 to 8 dental implants that hold a fixed Zirconia horseshoe-shaped prosthesis or bridge.
A Strong and Durable Option for Dental Reconstruction
Fixed Hybrid Zirconia Bridge reconstruction is one of the strongest and most aesthetically pleasing options available for replacing teeth in modern implant dentistry. While conventional removable dentures efficiently replace all the missing or lost components of teeth, All-On-6 dental implants offer a stable, permanent method for restoring an entire set of teeth. Implants replace the roots of your teeth, meaning that they will look and feel just like your natural teeth, and the All-On-6 dental prosthetic procedure prevents the bone from losing any more in the future.
A Whole New Set of Teeth
All-On-6 dental implants can be available in many different variations. All on 4/6/8/X gives patients a fixed, full-arch, implant-supported hybrid denture or bridge-in other words, a whole set of teeth attached to just 4 or up to 8 dental implants. Both are fixed in the mouth permanently, and they can replace a whole set of teeth with a bridge that is supported by implants.
Fixed Hybrid Implant-supported bridges are a viable option where replacing teeth is needed, but height at the adipose tissue level is not. With traditional full-mouth reconstruction, a dentist in the past might need to use eight to 10 dental implants per arch in order to provide sufficient support to replace missing teeth.
Why We Recommend All-on-6 Implant-Supported Dentures
While it is possible to replace entire teeth using only four implants in the upper jaw(All-On-4) A-Dental Center frequently recommends using six implants (All-On-6) or more implants (All-On-X) for added stability. Compared with traditional implants placed to replace individual missing teeth (1 implant for each tooth), All On 4/6/8/X uses implants at defined positions and angles, drawing the force across the whole arch, which allows for a full-arch prosthesis
In summary, A-Dental Center uses fewer implants to permanently anchor an implant-supported fixed hybrid denture or Zirconia bridge securely in the jaw.
Once the design is completed, an implant bridge is milled from a solid block of nonmetallic, tooth-colored material called Zirconia. Because the bridge is made of one material block, there is no chance that any teeth will break off the metal structures underneath, as the entire implant prosthesis is made of one zirconia block.
Frequently Asked Questions About Implant-Supported Dentures
What is the recovery time after getting Implant-Supported Dentures?
The recovery time for implant-supported dentures varies for each patient, depending on their overall health and the number of implants placed. Generally, most patients experience significant improvement in their symptoms within a few days to a week. However, the complete healing process, which involves the jawbone fusing with the implants (osseointegration), can take several months.
Are Implant-Supported Dentures noticeable?
Implant-supported dentures are designed to look and function like natural teeth. The prosthetics are crafted with meticulous attention to detail to match the color, shape, and size of your natural teeth. As a result, they blend seamlessly with your existing teeth, providing a natural-looking smile.
How should I care for my Implant-Supported Dentures?
Caring for your implant-supported dentures involves daily brushing and flossing, just like natural teeth. It’s essential to maintain good oral hygiene to prevent the buildup of plaque. Regular check-ups with your dentist are also crucial to ensure the implants and dentures are in good condition. Your dentist may also recommend specific products or cleaning methods for your dentures.
