Hybrid Dental Implants

With age, it is common that you may experience the loss of teeth depending on your overall oral health. In some cases, a patient may lose the majority or all of his or her teeth over time, causing the patient to seek out traditional tooth replacement options.

For patients who have lost multiple teeth in a row, dental bridges were typically recommended. On the other hand, for a patient who has lost all of his or her teeth, dentures were often suggested. While these tooth replacement options helped patients eat and talk more comfortably, they each came with their drawbacks. Dental bridges and dentures require specialized care and creams to maintain, and they also were less stable in the mouth, often becoming dislodged or falling out while talking or eating. For patients looking for a more sustainable form of dentures or dental bridges, opting for hybrid dental implants in Virginia may be right for you.

What Are Hybrid Dental Implants?

Hybrid dental implants are dentures or dental bridges that are secured and supported by dental implants. The denture or bridge prosthesis can be taken off of the dental implants for daily cleaning. While these prostheses can be removed, the dental implants provide a much more stable base and prevent the dental bridges or dentures from becoming loose while eating or talking.

Traditional dentures or dental bridges rest on the gumline, which make them prone to slipping. The main difference between implant supported prostheses and traditional dentures or dental bridges is that they are firmly secured to the anchor screws of the dental implant to provide a stable, healthy smile.

 

What are the benefits of implant supported dentures or bridges?

Traditional prostheses like dental bridges and dentures allow patients to regain a fuller smiler and the ability to chew and talk more comfortably, but they are not as secure as dental implants. Additionally, dental bridges and dentures may cause jawbone loss over time. Implant supported dentures and bridges use dental implants, which help maintain proper jawbone health and density. Hybrid dental implants help restore your smile without the uncomfortable or embarrassing shifting of dental bridges or dentures. The base of hybrid dental prostheses are made of a realistic acrylic, which is designed to blend with your natural gumline for the most natural-looking results possible.

The dental crowns used when placing hybrid dental implants are made of the finest materials for a whiter, more natural-looking smile. Because hybrid dental bridges and dentures are firmly held in place by dental implants, patients can smile, talk, and eat comfortably without the fear that their dental prosthesis may become dislodged. Implant supported dentures and dental bridges can help restore not only your smile but also your confidence.

What should I expect from hybrid dental implant surgery in Arlington?

The steps of your hybrid dental implant surgery will vary depending on if you are having an implant supported dental bridge or implant supported dentures placed. Hybrid dental implant surgery is typically divided into multiple steps. In the majority of cases, this will include an initial consultation, the dental implant surgery, and the insertion of the dental prosthesis. The first step to receiving hybrid dental implants is your initial consultation with our Virginia dental implant surgeon. Dr. Pashapour will perform an oral examination to determine which type of hybrid dental implant is right for you.

During hybrid dental implant surgery, dental implants will be placed on the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both depending on how many teeth you are having replaced. These dental implants will act as the stable base where your dental bridges or dentures will be attached. Following the placement of these dental implants, your jaw will undergo osseointegration. The process of osseointegration occurs when your dental implants bond to the gumline and jawbone, forming a stable, reliable base for your dentures or dental bridges. Following hybrid dental implant surgery, a temporary bridge or set of teeth will be placed as you heal.

After your dental implants have successfully bonded with your jawbone, Dr. Pashapour can insert your final dental prosthesis. Hybrid dental implants can be secured using a variety of attachments, including bars, magnets, or other forms of attachments. Dr. Pashapour will insert your implant supported dentures or dental bridges. After inserting your prostheses, Dr. Pashapour will ensure that they fit comfortably in your mouth. Dr. Pashapour guarantees the life of your hybrid dental implants.
