Are Hybrid Dental Implants Permanent?

hybrid dental implants Lincroft, NJ

Hybrid dental implants can be a great option for patients who have lost all of their natural teeth on the upper or lower jaws — or on both. Hybrid dental implants, sometimes also called hybrid overdentures, are a more permanent solution to dentures that offer significant cost savings when compared to regular dental implants.

About hybrid dental implants

A hybrid dental implant or overdenture is a full denture that includes both prosthetic teeth and life-like looking gums that completely cover the upper or lower jaws. They are anchored into the jawbone with dental implants in much the same way as regular (more expensive) dental implants. The implants, once surgically inserted and fused with the jawbone, become a permanent part of the patient’s mouth.

With proper care, overdentures resting on hybrid dental implants can last indefinitely, unlike traditional removable dentures, which typically require replacement every five to seven years. Hybrid dental implants are a system composed of titanium rods that allow a denture to be firmly and permanently affixed. Unlike regular dentures, denture plates affixed to hybrid dental implants do not shift or slip out of place, and most people experience biting and chewing strength much closer to that which they had with their natural teeth.

Hybrid dental implants restore dental function

Hybrid dental implants allow the use of denture plates that are much smaller than traditional dentures — in the case of hybrid dental implants for the upper jaw, they do not cover the roof of the mouth. Because of this, patients are better able to taste and enjoy their food more normally, and the hybrid dental implants feel much more natural than regular dentures.

More cost-effective than full dental implants

Hybrid dental implants are considerably less expensive than full dental implants. Though they can be a little more expensive than traditional removable dentures, they do not require replacement or relining, and with proper care can last a lifetime. Because of these factors, hybrid dental implants actually represent a more economical and cost-effective solution than traditional removable dentures.

The permanence of hybrid dental implants means that once their initial cost has been paid for, they will (under normal circumstances) not require further expenditure. Patients opting for hybrid dental implants will save money over both traditional full implants, which can cost upwards of $1,500 for a single tooth, and over the long term will also save money over traditional dentures, which require regular relining and replacement every five to seven years.

Most people with significant tooth loss are candidates for hybrid dental implants

If a patient is considering hybrid dental implants over either full implants or traditional dentures, the best first step is to meet with a qualified dental professional for an initial consultation. Dentists who are familiar with the hybrid dental implant process can answer any questions a patient may have, and provide more information both about the procedure and how much it is likely to cost.

A dentist can also help compare the advantages and disadvantages of the various available options and help you determine which might be right for you.
