Hybrid Prosthesis or “Teeth In a Day”
This is a wonderful treatment option in order to replace badly broken, decayed, or compromised teeth due to periodontal disease. It can even be used to replace uncomfortable or ill-fitting pre-existing dentures. A Hybrid prosthesis is essentially a fixed bridge that is attached to five or six implants in the arch. The bridge stays in the mouth and can only be removed by a dentist. Once the implants are fully healed, the biting and chewing function can increase by as much as 85% when compared to that same function in traditional dentures. A temporary bridge fabricated by your general dentist with your ideal teeth shape, size, and color is secured to the implants at the time of placement allowing you to leave with your new smile that same day. Patients can elect to treat one or both arches at the same time, giving the patient an instant smile makeover.
