If you’re struggling with missing or damaged teeth, or you are unhappy with your traditional dentures, hybrid fixed dentures at Lovett Dental Kohrville may be the solution for you. Our skilled dentists can design and craft these specialized tooth replacements that help you once again enjoy the look and feel of natural teeth and a complete smile.
What are Hybrid Fixed Dentures?
Hybrid fixed dentures are the superior option for replacing all of your teeth. At Lovett Dental, we call the treatment All-On-Four or Teeth in One Day. The dentures are sealed to your implants permanently. You don’t have to worry about them falling out because only a dentist can remove them. Your dentures will be fixed in place with four to six implants. To know whether dental implants would be suitable for you, we’ll perform a full dental evaluation that will include a detailed CBCT scan.
Once your consultation has been completed, we’ll develop a treatment plan for you. The total dental implantation procedures will take no longer than six months. Your first step after the consultation will be surgery to insert temporary teeth. You’ll be sedated during the operation, and when you wake up, you’ll have your smile back.
Two weeks after your operation, we’ll perform a necessary checkup. During your visit to Lovett Dental, the dentist will make sure the dentures are stable, take out any leftover sutures and make any needed adjustments to your bite. After waiting 2.5 to three months, you’ll have an appointment to take the last impressions for your permanent fixed denture.
We’ll X-ray your teeth to make sure the osseointegration is proceeding as expected. Meanwhile, we’ll be crafting your new dentures in our state of the art laboratory. Within a month of the final impressions, we’ll invite you back to our offices for the placement of your permanent fixed dentures.
The Benefits of Hybrid Fixed Dentures and Other Dental Implants
Don’t go through life with broken or missing teeth. Dental implants are permanent and they look and feel just like your original teeth. If you don’t replace your lost teeth with a dental implant, you could experience teeth shifting, drifting or bone loss. Dental implants will last you for a very long time. You’ll have full functionality too.
With dental implants, you can eat and smile just like you could with your natural teeth. Implants promote oral health, preserve your jawline and allow you to taste your favorite foods. You won’t need to worry about discomfort from glue or other adhesives. Neither will have to deal with the odd sensation of dentures slipping around in your mouth or pain from inadvertent cuts. At Lovett Dental Kohrville, we offer single-tooth implants, hybrid dentures, and snap-on dentures as part of our comprehensive implant solutions. Schedule an appointment today.
Taking Care of Your Hybrid Fixed Dentures
Maintaining your fixed dentures is easier than taking care of traditional dentures. Since only a dentist can remove them, you won’t have to take them out for daily cleaning. Just brush your teeth twice a day, and follow a dedicated oral care regiment to prevent the buildup of bacteria or infection. Of course, preparing for dentures may require additional treatment. If your mouth’s not healthy before the implantation, your dentist might perform sinus grafts, periodontal treatment, bone grafts or extractions. You can still come in once a year for your annual dental cleaning, or if you feel any discomfort with your dentures.
