Fixed Dentures (Hybrids)

We have patients come into our office every day in need of dental solutions. Dr. Roe is a Board Certified Prosthodontist here in Dallas. He is a dental specialist and has the ability to replace one or more missing teeth.
Many people are missing some or all of their teeth. There are several treatment options for those that are in that position. Fixed dentures are a popular choice because it allows you to chew and talk without the teeth moving. The teeth are fixed in the mouth so that they cannot be taken out by anyone other than the dentist. 

What are Fixed Dentures?all on 4 dental implants

Fixed dentures are hybrids between a denture and an implant-supported bridge. This is why they are often called hybrids. Fixed dentures are also known as All-on-4 ® dental implants because they are screwed into four implants that are placed in the jawbone. 
Fixed dentures are made to replace missing soft and hard tissue, or teeth and gums. The replacement looks similar to a denture but is connected to multiple dental implants.
Unlike an implant-retained overdenture, fixed dentures are retained and supported by dental implants. This means that the fixed denture doesn’t really rest much on the mouth tissue and jaw, but instead rests on the dental implants.

Are All-on-4® Dental Implants The Same as Fixed Dentures?

Yes, All-on-four® dental implants are dental hybrids. The implants that are placed in the jaw is what keeps the teeth from moving. This option keeps you from having to rely on denture adhesives. Also, it gives you the best functionality for chewing.
The reason that a fixed denture is called All-on-four® is that it must rest on a minimum of four implants. The implants are strategically placed in your mouth to support a full set of teeth.
In some instances, the number of required implants may be six to eight. Fixed dentures are considered the “Cadillac” of dental treatment.

Why Choose Dental Implants Instead of Dentures

Many people choose dental implants instead of dentures because they function like natural teeth. These hybrid prostheses also offer a beautiful natural smile.
You will have a full complement of teeth that function well for chewing. Here’s a look at the effectiveness of each prosthetic for chewing. 
There is absolutely no movement of the teeth in your mouth like there is with dentures or 4-implant locator overdentures. That means that your ability to chew is greatly improved when you go with All-on-4® dental implants. They do not come out of the mouth except when removed by the dentist for routine evaluation and cleanings.
Here is a look at the functionality of each of these prosthetics. 

Can Temporary Dentures Be Placed The Same Day?

In some cases, it is possible for a temporary fixed denture to be placed the same day the last teeth are removed. In these instances, all remaining teeth are removed, 4-6 dental implants are placed, and a temporary fixed denture is inserted to be worn while healing occurs.
Many times, we make your teeth right here in our office. We have a lab where Dr. Roe handcrafts your smile. He also places your implants right here in our dental clinic. All of your treatment will take place under our care, from start to finish.
