Hybridge Dental Implants Orlando
What is Hybridge?
Hybridge describes prosthetic teeth that are permanently afixed to he jaw. The process involves surgical placement of titanium implants that fuse to the bone and replace the roots of natural teeth. This preserves the density and integrity of the bone, an provides a strong foundation for full functioning teeth. The preservation of the bone also contributes to a more youthful appearance.
The hybridge teeth are all on unit, a single arch on the top and/or bottom. The best hybrid bridges are made of zirconia, one of the hardest materials on earth, also used to make synthetic diamonds. With zirconia, there is no staining or chipping; zirconia bridges are actually stronger than your natural teeth. They are also exceptionally natural in appearance and can be virtually impossible to distinguish from original teeth.
Hybridge is the most advanced, state-of-the-art procedure available for full mouth restorations. There are unique dental implant centers, such as LifetimeTeethToday in Orlando, that have the capability of completing the entire procedure all in one office, all in one day. This is based on a relatively new process frequently referred to as “all on four”, where the hybrid bridge is attached to to at least 4 solid titanium implants. With 4 strong attachments, it is not necessary to wait for the implants to heal before fixing the bridge; the combined support of the implants provides enough strength and support where the patent can wear the bridge home immediately after the extraction and implant procedure. The patient must follow a soft diet for two to four months while the implants heal; foods such as fish, pasta, cooked vegetables are fine.
In order to accomplish a full restoration in one day, there are three key elements every facility should have. First, an experienced board certified oral surgeon; second, in in-house lab with its own zirconia milling machine; and third, a prosthodontist who specializes in the both the function and natural appearance of the prosthetic teeth. All of these elements are present at LifetimeTeethToday; in fact, Oral Surgeon Dr. Ronald Trevisani provides continuing education classes for other physicians who are specializing in dental implants.
