Hybrid Dentures

Hybrid Dentures

Dr. Wisdom Akpaka at Wisdom Dental in Coral Springs, FL, places implants and restores them in his dental office, for the highest standard of care, so his patients do not need to go elsewhere.

If you have lost most or all of your natural teeth on the upper or lower arch, your options are a traditional complete overdenture, a snap-on denture supported by mini implants, conventional implants with locator abutments so you can remove and seat your denture, or a hybrid denture that is retained on as few as 4 dental implants. Many patients report the fixed nature of a hybrid denture is the most similar to having a full set of natural teeth.

Why Patients Want Hybrid Dentures

There are several advantages of a hybrid denture. First, it is highly stable. It does not cover the soft palate of the mouth so eating is more enjoyable. Biting strength is nearly 100{3b0b23c86b8b6909907d728981a1f27bbea8c8b6e95967665355a39a4646e0de} restored so you can eat all of your favorite foods. The denture never slips because it is firmly attached to your jawbone. And, because the dental implants stimulate bone growth, the jawbone maintains much of its bone density and shape, so your facial structure is retained.

Hybrid dentures are worn 24 hours a day and are brushed and flossed much like natural teeth. When you visit us for your regular appointments at Wisdom Dental, we will remove the denture for cleaning and examine your gum and bone tissue. If you have difficulty cleaning your denture, we will provide in-office cleaning on a more frequent basis until you become proficient at it. The good news is that a hybrid denture fixed on dental implants will last much longer (with proper care) than a removable denture.
