Hybrid Prosthesis (Single Jaw)
SKU : DEN-IM39
Hybrid dentures are called “All-on-4” because edentulous patients (patients without teeth) can have an upper or lower overdenture fixed on as few as four dental implants. A hybrid denture is a permanent set of teeth that look, feel, and function just like natural teeth. Essentially, this type of denture is stabilized in the jaw bone and is a cross between a traditional denture and a fixed bridge
How a hybrid denture differs from a removable denture?
Unlike a removable denture that requires adhesive to keep it stable, a hybrid denture is firmly attached to four or more implants in the jaw. Following the healing of the implants in the jaw bone, the implants are connected to abutments that are screwed into a metal framework. The hybrid denture is fixed and does not need to be taken out every day like regular dentures, making it a much more convenient option for replacing missing teeth. Unlike removable dentures that often feel bulky and uncomfortable, hybrid dentures represent a more comfortable option. And since the upper palate is left open, these dentures make it easier to fully taste and enjoy all the flavors of foods. Hybrid dentures also don’t move and shift out of place like removable dentures often do, as they’re very secure and stable. This stability also prevents any soreness from developing, which is common when removable dentures are worn and especially when small pieces of food become trapped under the dentures.
