About hybrid dental implants

Hybrid dental implants provide a comprehensive way to fasten dentures to get a full-arch restoration. This process works by inserting the screws (dental implants) which are digitally guided to several strategic areas on the upper and/or lower arch. Compared to other enhancement dentures, hybrid implants use fewer implants for a more secure hold. Dr. Patrick Yoshikane suggests this option if you are wanting a completely restored mouth without the bother and diet limitations of removable dentures. Several Orange, CA patients have enjoyed the advantages of this innovative procedure, appreciating quality outcomes. If you are interested in discovering more information on hybrid implants and custom-made dentures, then we invite you to schedule a consultation at Patrick Yoshikane, D.D.S.

Best Candidates

Hybrid dental implants may be utilized to substitute one or both dental arches together with dental implants connected to custom dentures. You may be a good candidate for hybrid implants if you prefer the advantages of implant-supported dentures compared to traditional, removable dentures, including no or few diet limitations, no sticky glues, without any denture soaking. You'll have to have sufficient gum and bone density in order to get implants since the implants will rely upon your gums and bone to hold them in position. If necessary, gum and/or bone grafts might be required before the implants can be placed. Dr. Yoshikane can ascertain if this procedure is good for you during your consultation and can help you understand all of your choices.

What to Expect

The first step in the hybrid dental implant process is to take dental impressions and x-rays of your mouth. Dr. Yoshikane will develop your personal treatment program and discuss your choices for sedation throughout your procedures. During your first procedure, the dental implants will be placed in your gums and jawbone. Dr. Yoshikane will put a temporary cover to protect the dental implants as your gums and jawbone recover and your dentures are made. In a few months, you should come back to get your custom-made dentures connected and adjusted for a comfortable fit.

Recovery

You might feel some discomfort in your mouth following implant surgery. While you're wearing your temporary dentures, there'll be some dietary limitations and cleaning directions to follow. You'll also come in for routine follow-ups throughout the recovery period so Dr. Yoshikane can check your recovery and ensure that the implants are healing into your gums and bone. As soon as your custom dentures have been placed, you should clean them just like normal teeth with regular brushing. You should still visit Patrick Yoshikane, D.D.S. for yearly examinations and twice-yearly professional cleanings to maintain your dentures, and so Dr. Yoshikane can track the health of your gums and jawbone.
