Another option available to replace your missing teeth is a removable hybrid prosthesis. Removable hybrid prostheses are a type of implant-supported denture, and are specially designed to be detachable from the supporting implants so that you can remove them from your mouth. To find out if removable hybrid prostheses in Kennebunk, Maine, are right for you and to schedule an appointment with Dr. Sara Sheikh or Dr. Samuel Koo, please call Kennebunk Center for Dentistry today at 207-985-7944.
Removable hybrid prostheses, also known as hybrid detachable dentures, consist of a set of dentures fixed to several implants. Depending on your needs there may be between 4-8 implants placed in your jawbone. This type of restorative treatment is typically recommended when there is already significant bone loss in your jaw and you do not want to remove any further teeth from your mouth.
Benefits of removable hybrid prostheses include:
- A minimally invasive treatment
- Nothing is left covering the roof of your mouth, creating a more natural feel
- A highly stable treatment
- None of the soreness and shifting associated with traditional dentures
- Easily removable so that you can maintain good oral hygiene
