If you have worn dentures for a long period of time and have problems keeping your teeth in, dental implant hybrids could be the solution for you. Hybrids can restore the functionality and stability of your denture.
A hybrid dental implant restoration by Cleveland implant dentist Dr. Elrawy replaces the missing teeth, gum, and bone in your mouth. The dental hybrid is anchored to dental implants that are surgically placed in your jaw. In most cases, small titanium cylinders are used for the implant to serve just like a tooth root. A removable denture appliance is attached to the hybrid. Or a hybrid can be used for a single tooth replacement.
Shown in the bottom image on the right, you can see how the appliance fits precisely in place. This tight fit means that there is no risk of irritation to your sensitive gum tissue. Hybrids are comfortable and give you the confidence to eat normally.
The screws are hidden on the inside of the teeth to anchor the denture into place. This is a long-term solution for missing teeth.
On occasion, your dentist will need to professionally clean underneath the fixed hybrid. We can remove the dental appliance by unscrewing it for the occasional maintenance or cleaning as needed.
Fixed dental hybrid patients say that this treatment feels just like their natural teeth and has given them their confidence back.
