The fixed hybrid dental implant systems provide you with a full arch replacement. The procedure is ideal if you have lost all or most of your teeth. Even if you have a few teeth, it might be best to have them extracted and get an Fixed hybrid treatment.
Traditional dental implants replace a single tooth that holds a crown. Dental implants can also hold bridges to replace a few missing teeth.
However, fixed hybrid can hold a full denture, replacing your entire upper or lower arch. Your provider spaces your four or six implants evenly across your jawbone to support the whole set of teeth and to maintain the stability of your jawbone.
Your procedure also provides a new set of teeth on the same day, so you don’t have to wait.
Your provider talks with you during your consultation to learn about medications and supplements you might take because they might cause additional bleeding.
With that information, your provider can determine if you need to quit taking any medications or supplements before your procedure.
Before your surgery, prepare to have someone drive you home after your procedure for safety reasons.
Before your fixed hybrid surgery, you can decide on your sedation options. In addition to sedation treatments, your provider thoroughly numbs your gums before starting treatment.
If you have any remaining teeth, they get extracted first. Then your provider takes impressions of both of your arches and then places four or six titanium posts or implants into your jawbone. They serve as anchors or artificial roots for your new prosthetic teeth.
The last step involves bonding the bridge of prosthetic teeth to your implants. You walk out the door with a beautiful smile.
Fixed hybrid treatments are some of the best options to restore a fully functional, aesthetically pleasing smile.
