Hybrid Dentures


Hybrid Dentures diagram at Timothy H. Kindt, DDSWhen you are missing teeth, getting them replaced is essential for restoring the functions and aesthetics of your mouth. If you are missing most or all of your teeth, there are a wide variety of treatment options available to help you achieve this goal. Today, the most popular option for tooth replacement is dental implants. At Timothy H. Kindt, DDS, we offer several types of dental implants designed to meet a variety of needs. One of these options is hybrid dentures.

What Are Hybrid Dentures?


Hybrid dentures are a solution that is often used for patients who are missing most or all of the teeth in either the upper or lower jaw. Much like the name suggests, hybrid dentures consist of a set of dentures that are fixed to dental implants. The denture, which consists of both prosthetic teeth and gums, covers the alveolar ridge. Unlike traditional dentures, the hybrid denture is held securely, and permanently, in place on the implants with small screws. Your replacement teeth will not slip out of place when you eat or speak. The only time the hybrid denture is removed is if repairs or other professional maintenance are needed. Also, unlike traditional dentures, upper hybrid dentures do not cover the palate.

How Are Hybrid Dentures Placed?


Hybrid dentures are placed like dental implants. In a surgical procedure, the implants used to support your hybrid denture are implanted into the jawbone. As few as four implants can be used to support the restoration. After incisions are made in the gum tissue, holes are drilled into the bone and the implants, which are small titanium rods, are placed inside. The gum tissue is then sutured closed around the implants. As you heal, the bone fuses to the titanium, turning them into secure, stable roots. The implants support a bar, which then anchors your prosthetic teeth in place.

What Are the Benefits of Hybrid Dentures?


There are numerous benefits to hybrid dentures.
•  Affordability. Many patients who have lost several teeth are frightened by the cost of dental implants. With a hybrid denture, as few as four implants are used to support your new teeth, which helps to decrease cost.
•  Greater comfort. Your new teeth are supported by the implants, rather than your gums. Because they are held securely in place, they will not slip or irritate the gum tissue.
•  More natural. Hybrid dentures are not bulky, and they do not cover your palate. They look, and feel, just like your natural teeth.
•  There is no need for denture creams or adhesives.
•  Ease of maintenance. Your new teeth can be cared for just like your natural teeth. There is no lengthy care routine involved. Regular brushing and flossing are essential for continuing to maintain your oral health, even if all of your teeth have been replaced.
•  The implants help to preserve the health and integrity of your jawbone.
•  Hybrid dentures, with proper care, can last indefinitely. There is no need to have them periodically replaced.
