What are Hybrid Fixed Dentures?

Posted on 9/19/2022 by Evan
What are Hybrid Fixed Dentures?Hybrid dentures are appliances that dentists use to replace lost dental structures and gum tissues. They are a good option since they take the form of the lost teeth since they are fixed and do not have a palate; hence it provides pleasing aesthetics and comfort when worn.

These dental appliances apply to patients who have lost all teeth within the maxilla mandible or in both parts. Also, dentists use them to correct teeth bone loss.

How Are the Hybrid Fixed Dentures Placed?

The Hybrid Fixed Dentures have a metal core of various colors to provide an aesthetic feeling to the teeth. The appliance is attached to the implants placed in the bone through surgical intervention. In addition, the screws are used to fix the dentures and to seal the space between the fixed structure and the implants.

Advantages of Hybrid Fixed Dentures

Highly Aesthetic

They provide a beautiful, captivating aesthetic nature that takes the form of teeth. Also, they are relatively versatile, so an individual can choose from them. In addition, they offer a natural look and feel.

Better Proprioception

The Hybrid Fixed Dentures reduce the effects of occlusion forces during masticatory performances since it acts as a bridge between the teeth and the structure.

Disadvantages of Hybrid Fixed Dentures

They are Costly

Compared to other dental appliances, Hybrid Fixed Dentures are more costly to purchase. This sometimes limits individuals from getting the proper treatment due to their expensive costs.

Hygiene Maintenance is challenging

Since they are fixed, they require specific hygiene skills to clean and maintain their overall hygiene. Generally, when choosing a Hybrid Fixed Denture, it's essential to get the opinion of a dentist for a better choice of dental appliances. Also, it's necessary to consider the preferred choice of dentures since it's fixed and worn for a very long time.
