Hybrid Dental Implants in Houston, TX
The Denture-Implant Hybrid Solution
At Antoine Dental Center, our Houston, TX, dentist understands you may be looking for a stable, sturdy tooth replacement so you can enjoy your lifestyle once again. We’re proud to provide hybrid dental implants, a permanent and secure solution for missing teeth that can improve your oral health, comfort, and confidence.
The Benefits of Hybrid Dental Implants
There are several benefits to choosing hybrid dental implants over traditional dentures, including:
- Improved comfort: Hybrid dental implants are custom-made to fit your mouth perfectly, meaning they’re more comfortable than traditional dentures.
- Enhanced stability: Because the denture appliance is attached to dental implants, it’s more stable and less likely to move around or slip out of place.
- Improved oral health: Hybrid dental implants can help preserve your jawbone and prevent bone loss, which traditional dentures cannot.
- Improved speech: Hybrid dental implants can help improve your speech by providing a more stable and secure denture.
- Improved aesthetics: Hybrid dental implants look and feel like natural teeth, improving your self-confidence and overall quality of life.
Hybrid Dentures: A Better Solution
Dr. Behzad Nazari recognizes that All-on-4 implants aren’t for everyone. Some patients like being able to remove their teeth for cleaning or just generally prefer the denture solution but would like for it to be more stable. Antoine Dental can help with that! Dr. Nazari and his associates offer what we call denture-implant hybrid solutions.
We place dental implants around your mouth and create a set of dentures (or retrofit your dentures) with attachment hardware. Unlike traditional dentures, hybrid dentures don’t rely on suction or adhesive to stay in place. When you slide your dentures in, they’ll attach to those dental implants to create a stable, functional denture solution!
Frequently Asked Questions
How long do hybrid dental implants last?
Hybrid dental implants can last for many years with proper care and maintenance. However, they may need to be adjusted or replaced over time. Ask your dentist at your initial consultation how you can make the most out of your appliance.
Are hybrid dental implants painful?
The placement of dental implants involves surgery, so some discomfort is to be expected. However, most people find the procedure to be relatively painless, and any discomfort can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.
How do I care for my hybrid dental implants?
You can care for your hybrid dental implants just like you would care for natural teeth. This includes brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and visiting your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings.
How often do I need dental check-ups if I have hybrid dental implants?
It’s important to visit your dentist regularly, whether you have hybrid dental implants or not. Your dentist will recommend scheduling routine dental visits based on your individual needs. In general, patients should visit the dentist every six months for a check-up and cleaning.
During your check-up, your dentist will examine your hybrid dental implants and make sure they are in good condition. They’ll also check for any signs of gum disease or other oral health problems.
