What Are Hybrid Dentures?

Posted on: December 3, 2018

Have you heard the term hybrid dentures but have no idea what that means?

Hybrid dentures are also known as fixed dentures or fixed detachable dentures. They are a denture solution that requires wearers to have dental implants. This type of denture is held in place by attaching to dental implants.

Hybrid dentures are quite popular amongst those who are missing teeth as special dental technologies are used to create the dentures, which allows them to fit exceptionally well. Wearers can live their everyday lives without worry as these revolutionary dentures allow for normal functioning.

Hybrid dentures also offer a very natural looking smile. This often makes it hard for anyone to tell the difference between artificial teeth and natural teeth. It gives denture wearers the assurance they are looking for and need so that they can always smile with confidence.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are also called artificial teeth as they look and act just like natural teeth. It is the reason why they are very popular. When someone loses one of their teeth, there is no longer a tooth root connecting to the jawbone in that area. This means that the jawbone in that area will slowly begin to deteriorate now that it is not receiving any stimulation from the tooth,

When someone is missing several teeth, then it is often necessary for a dental surgeon to restructure the jawbone. A dentist will usually use dental implants to carry out this procedure.

Hybrid dentures are more natural

Modern dental technologies are always improving and now allow for dentures that look very much like your natural teeth. Traditional dentures that are held in place by fitting over your gums are still available. That said, as more and more people find out the benefits of hybrid dentures, they are looking further into what it takes to get this more advanced option.

The fact that the dentures attach to two or four strategically placed dental implants means that anyone who wants this type of denture needs to undergo dental implant surgery. For you to be approved to undergo this surgical process, you must be in overall good health. This is a medical procedure, so doctors want to minimize complications.
