Fixed Hybrid Denture

The fixed hybrid denture is in the top tier of care for a patient missing all their teeth, and wanting something much more similar to their natural teeth. This is an implant restoration that is fixed, or screwed into placed, and isn’t taken out by the patient.  It can only be removed by Dr. Breen if needed at recall appointments.  This is a truly amazing restoration that is perfect for someone who does not like the idea of taking a denture in and out of their mouth.

  • A special metal bar/framework is fabricated to screw into implants to increase foundation and stability,  and teeth are set on top of bar similar to a denture
  • Fixed restoration gives most bite force/ability back and can feel most like natural teeth
  • Still replaces teeth AND gums that have been lost due to bone loss
  • Much less bulk of material needed
  • Requires more implants for support- have to be standard size implants, cannot be mini implants
  • Usually less heavy than other fixed ceramic and metal restorations
  • Small space is left between the restoration and the gums to allow for cleaning- it is very important to have great oral hygiene as this is harder to clean than a denture you take out
  • Implants stabilize bone loss, and take the pressures of the dentures off the gums
