You want to replace all of your teeth at once. Or maybe you’re already wearing dentures and want something that’s more permanent. If that’s the case, you’re in luck! Georgia Denture & Implant Specialists offers a hybrid-type device that blends the efficiency of a denture with the stability of dental implants.
Depending on who you ask, some people refer to hybrid dentures as an “All-on-4” or “All-on-6” type of “extended implant bridge”.
Essentially, your appliance is a streamlined, fixed, “U” shape prosthesis that’s permanently anchored onto strategically placed implants. Unlike a conventional denture, there isn’t a “plate” that spans across the roof of your mouth. Since the implants are physically attached to the hybrid appliance, you don’t have to rely on any type of fabricated suction in your palate to hold it in place.
Unlike traditional dentures, a hybrid implant denture isn’t removable. Once it’s attached it doesn’t go anywhere. Only an implant dentist can remove it. Georgia Denture & Implant Specialists oversees the entire process from start to finish, planning where each implant is placed and what you want the final appliance to look like.
Even though you’re replacing all of your (upper or lower) teeth at once, only 4-6 implants are needed. You won’t need one for each individual tooth that’s being restored. Implants are extremely durable, which makes this full arch restoration process such a success.
