All-on-4® Hybrid implant dentures use a full set of high-quality prosthetics to replace full rows of teeth. They coalesce to the jaw which means they do not move around. They are also designed to replace the missing gum tissue. Hybrid dentures are rapidly growing in popularity primarily because they are comfortable, affordable, and look natural.
How is All-on-4® done?
The All-on-4® dental implant is a small titanium screw that fits in your jawbone and replaces the root part of the missing tooth. Over this, a functional crown is given. Instead of using one implant for every missing tooth, dentists use four implants on top and four on the bottom which acts as anchors. Once, these four implants are placed, a set of new teeth (provisional denture) are positioned at these spots.
What are the advantages of All-on-4® hybrid dentures?
All-on-4® hybrid dentures offer support as they are screwed directly to dental implants. While other dentures can become loose or dislocated during normal activities such as talking or eating, hybrid dentures will not. Additionally, these dentures are sturdy and look and give a feel of the natural teeth. The All-on-4® hybrid dentures do not cover the roof of the mouth, allowing the wearer to fully enjoy eating and drinking. Messy creams and adhesives are not needed to secure hybrid dentures in place. Gum irritation is eliminated, the bite strength is increased, allowing for an increased option of foods. Hybrid dentures promote the quality of life and boost confidence as well.
How do you clean hybrid dentures?
Hybrid dentures can be brushed with non-abrasive toothpaste twice a day. Using short, back-and-forth strokes, gently brush the outer, inner, and chewing surfaces of the denture teeth, as well as the pink acrylic portions of the denture.
What is the most comfortable denture?
Flexible dentures are comfortable because it clasps the contours of the gum and avoids bruises to the gum. They last longer than other types of dentures.
How long do hybrid dentures last?
Hybrid dentures should last indefinitely if good care is taken. This makes them much more cost-effective in contrast to traditional dentures as they usually have a lifespan of about five to eight years.
