Dental implants are small titanium screws that are placed into your jaw to replace missing tooth roots. Dental implants can support individual crowns if the patient is missing one tooth, as well as bridges that replace several lost teeth or a fixed denture or prosthesis if the patient is missing a full arch.
What Are All-on-X Implants?
All-on-X implants are a type of dental implant that can replace all of the teeth on a dental arch. They are typically ideal for patients who are missing a full arch of teeth. The all-on-X implant procedure utilizes four to six dental implants placed in strategic locations along the jawbone to support a fixed prosthesis and, therefore, makes it possible to permanently replace an entire arch of teeth in one go. Unlike removable dentures, all-on-X implants allow patients to enjoy an incredibly stable, durable tooth replacement solution that offers immediate results.
Benefits of All-on-X Implants
All-on-X allows patients who have lost all of their teeth to get a full set of functional teeth without having to undergo numerous surgeries and procedures. Patients can expect the all-on-X implants to last for several decades, just like natural teeth. Replacing missing teeth with all-on-X implants also reduces the risk of bone loss and gum recession.
How Does the All-on-X Implant Procedure Work?
During the all-on-X implant surgery, four to six dental implants are placed within the jaw. These implant posts fuse together with the jawbone and gum tissue, creating a stable foundation that can support a permanent restoration.
Impressions are used to design and manufacture the replacement teeth so that they look natural and fit your smile. The replacement teeth are made from porcelain or other materials and matched to the color of your natural teeth for a seamless look. Once the replacement teeth are ready, they are attached to the implants with screws or dental cement.
Hybrid dentures combine the stability and strength of implant-supported dentures with the affordability of dentures that rest on top of the gums. They are fixed in place and do not require adhesive. They can be made for either partial or full tooth loss.
Hybrid dentures are supported by dental implants. They are affordable alternatives to full arch restorations and provide more stability than traditional dentures.
Hybrid dentures consist of a removable denture base that is attached to a metal framework. The dentures are held in place by dental implants, which fuse with the jawbone. Dental implants are surgically placed in either the upper or lower jaw. Once the denture base is placed, the hybrid denture is screwed onto the implants.
Why Choose Hybrid Dentures?
Hybrid dentures are an innovative type of denture that combines the advantages of both traditional and implant-supported restorations. Their benefits include:
The bone structure within your mouth is constantly changing. When you lose a tooth, the surrounding tissues begin to deteriorate. Hybrid dentures prevent bone deterioration, which protects your remaining teeth.
- Preserve adjacent healthy teeth
A hybrid denture is designed to preserve healthy teeth that neighbor a missing tooth. A traditional denture relies on suction or adhesives to stay in place, but a hybrid denture is held in place by dental implants. When a dental implant is placed, it stimulates the jawbone, helping to keep the bone healthy and strong. When a dental implant is used to support a hybrid denture, it helps the jawbone stay healthy and strong, allowing for better support when chewing.
- More comfortable than traditional dentures
Because hybrid dentures are secured with dental implants, they are more comfortable than traditional dentures. Traditional dentures rest on the gums, which can cause discomfort. On the other hand, hybrid dentures are anchored to the jawbone with dental implants, which eliminates discomfort.
- Easy to care for and maintain
The hybrid denture is also easier to maintain than traditional dentures.
- Improved appearance and speech clarity
Hybrid dentures are designed to give you a confident, natural look. They are crafted to blend together the features and benefits of implant-supported dentures and conventional dentures. The result is a smile that looks and functions as naturally as possible.
Hybrid dentures are durable and long-lasting. They won’t wear down over time, resist chipping, and will maintain their bright white color.
Hybrid dentures will not break the bank. Many people find that they are the most affordable option, especially when compared to individual implants.
