You can finally have the smile you’ve always wanted in just one visit to our Arlington Heights, IL dentist office. Dr. Brent Engelberg of AH Smiles can replace an entire arch of teeth in just one day using this revolutionary new treatment. Millions of Americans wear traditional dentures or are missing teeth. But, Dr. Engelberg can give you an attractive, natural-looking, permanent smile with implant-secured dentures, also known as fixed hybrid dentures.
What Are Fixed Hybrid Dentures?
Fixed hybrid dentures, also known as implant-secured dentures, are a relatively new treatment that restores the appearance and full functionality of a full arch of teeth without the problems normally experienced by denture users.
Using modern 3D computer imaging and treatment planning, Dr. Engelberg can design your prosthetic arch of teeth which will then be permanently mounted in your mouth on only 4 implants giving you a youthful, healthy smile.
In addition to restoring the natural appearance of your smile, fixed hybrid dentures improve the health and integrity of the jawbone due to the implants promoting the growth of healthy new bone tissue. Best of all, implant-secured dentures eliminate the need for messy denture adhesives and the worry of embarrassing denture slippages, allowing recipients to eat, drink, speak, and smile confidently for a lifetime.
How Do Implant-Secured Dentures Work?
We can use four tiny dental implants to mount a full arch of permanent dentures. Fixed hybrid dentures are great for patients that may have lost integrity in their jawbone tissue due to missing teeth for a while.
Dental implants preserve the underlying jawbone tissue while also promoting the growth of new, healthy bone to reinforce the implant. And, instead of replacing only one or two teeth at a time, fixed hybrid dentures can restore a full arch at once.
Patients who receive implant-secured dentures can feel confident and secure in a well-fitted dental restoration that will not slip and requires no special maintenance. Since they are made of titanium, implants are resistant to decay and can last a lifetime as long as patients maintain good gum health with daily oral hygiene.
After the four implants are placed, temporary restorations are affixed while the implant site is given time to heal properly. These temporary dentures will allow you to eat and talk normally while you await your final restorations.
