So you have a lower, or maybe even an upper, denture and it just won’t stay in. Or it moves. Or maybe you just hate taking it in and out because you don’t like having removable teeth.
Whatever the reason, I’ve got an option you may want to check out. Have you ever heard of a hybrid denture? They are also known as fixed-detachable dentures and are a way to replace missing teeth and gum tissue with a prosthetic (denture) attached to dental implants. Often times, your current denture can be used!
Hybrid dentures are recommended when you have a lot of bone loss in your jaw; that’s what makes dentures not fit well. This type of denture is more natural-looking and stable. They can be taken out by your dentist if need be, but stay in place from day to day, so it’s like having your natural teeth. Generally speaking, about four implants are placed and the denture is retained by the implants.
If you’d like more information about hybrid dentures, or to find out if you are a candidate for one, call or email us! We’d be happy to see you for a complimentary consultation.
