Hybrid Dentures

Fixed implant-supported dentures

Designed for patients who desire a fixed, permanent solution but may not qualify for traditional implants

Dr. Harris may recommend fixed, implant-supported dentures, called Hybrid Dentures, for patients who have lost or are about to lose all of their natural teeth on an upper or lower arch. Hybrid Dentures combine the anchoring power of implants with the coverage of dentures. However, they eliminate the negative aspects of dentures, including slippage, clacking, loss of taste and other bothersome aspects. They also require only a few dental implants to secure the new teeth in place, thus allowing for faster recovery time, are more comfort, and affix the dentures to the jaw permanently.

About Hybrid Dentures

Hybrid Dentures
Hybrid Dentures are firmly anchored to the jawbone with minimal implant posts strategically placed throughout the arch for support.

What is a Hybrid Denture?

Conventional dentures typically fit over the gums and an upper denture may provide some suction by using the palate. But a lower denture is almost always a nightmare to eat with and tends to flop around.

As a combination treatment, Hybrid Dentures offer the stability and health benefits of dental implants with the coverage and ease of dentures, creating the ideal teeth replacement solution. With this treatment, Hybrid Dentures are firmly anchored to the jawbone with minimal implant posts strategically placed throughout the arch for support. This type of denture can only be removed by a dentist.

What are the benefits of Hybrid Dentures?

Hybrid Dentures are ideal for patients seeking more affordable ways to replace missing teeth. We can also repair and secure loose dentures that have made it harder to speak, eat or smile with confidence.

Hybrid Dentures can provide you with a more youthful appearance, supporting the structure of the face and stopping the process of bone loss. Further, they are more stable and feel like natural teeth. Plus, there is no gum tissue irritation due to dentures slipping. With Hybrid Dentures, all slippage is eliminated.

Perhaps best of all, you will no longer need to use messy creams or adhesives to secure your denture in place. And you'll be able to clean your Hybrid Dentures just like natural teeth with regular brushing and flossing.

Who typically gets Hybrid Dentures?

Patients who have previously used dentures but are otherwise in good health are excellent candidates for Hybrid Dentures. In fact, many of our patients who have been told they have too much bone loss to have traditional dental implants are ecstatic to hear that they are perfect candidates for Hybrid Dentures because there's no need for bone grafts or other bone enhancement procedures.
