Here’s what you need to know:
What are Hybrid Implant Dentures?
As the name implies, hybrid implant dentures are dentures that are fixed onto implants. And just like regular dentures, hybrid implant dentures use a full set of high-quality prosthetics to replace full rows of teeth.
However, unlike regular dentures, hybrid implant dentures are fixed into your mouth using a set of six dental implants – titanium posts that fuse with your jaw. In other words, the dental implants support a laboratory set of teeth. As a consequence, the denture is permanently fixed in one place, will not move around, and can only be removed by a dentist.
