All-on-four dental implants can provide you with a complete set of teeth with only four implants. These four implants will sustain an entire arch of non-removable replacement teeth. You can get a full set of teeth with the all-on-four dental technique without having to undergo repeated procedures.
Hybrid dentures come in a variety of materials, including standard metal with acrylic or metal-free alternatives like zirconia. These dentures are made to look and function like natural teeth.
When it comes to implant-retained, full-arch “denture” prosthesis, Puche Dental Lab provides four different hybrid restoration options. Let me briefly go over each group and highlight some key differences.
All you need to know about All ALL-ON-4 dental implants
- Instant teeth: New teeth are fitted nearly right away following dental implant surgery at the same one-trip stage. This makes the transition easier, especially for people who already have teeth.
- Reduced length of treatment: A safe method is used to place the implants in the jawbone, which shortens the time it takes to heal after All on 4 dental implants. The nearby tissue will be less damaged, so the healing process will be faster.
- Prevents the need for bone grafts: All-on-4 posterior dental implants are angled to take full advantage of the front jaw bone anchorage. This indicates that bone grafts on the posterior regions are not necessary in certain cases.
Four Unique Hybrid Restorations for Implants
1. Traditional Acrylic with Titanium Structure
A pair of titanium hybrid dentures consists of zirconia teeth attached to a titanium bar that was created using CAD/CAM technology. Laser welding makes it possible to fix any damage to a titanium bar, extending the bar’s lifespan.
Traditional Acrylic provides
- Less tooth shearing and better wear resistance
- Titanium that allows mandible flexure since it is less stiff than zirconia.
- One worn or chipped tooth is replaced more simply, protecting the patient’s investment.
- A cured acrylic base that makes this prosthetic denture easy to repair if the teeth loosen.
- Cheaper and easier dealing than zirconia.
- Dental acrylic lasts longest.
2. Composite Hybrid Implants
Composite hybrid implants are a blend of milled composite materials that offer advantages over both acrylic and zirconia hybrids, but they also have drawbacks. They are made of a robust combination of tough hybrid composite and durable metal, allowing for in-mouth polishing and repairs. Unlike acrylic, they are less susceptible to chipping and are also lighter than zirconia. Despite their high durability, they may not survive as long as complete zirconia hybrid dental implants.
Composite hybrid implants are
- Hard metal and flexible hybrid composite
- Highly polishable, it can be mouth-repaired.
- Chip-resistant compared to acrylic.
- More lightweight than zirconia.
- Very durable, yet not as durable as complete zirconia.
- Gentle on opposing teeth; wears like real teeth.
3. Hybrid Monolithic Zirconia: Full Arch Prosthesis
The Hybrid monolithic zirconia is a fixed, all-ceramic implant that offers a reliable and aesthetically pleasing alternative for your patients who do not have any teeth. This dental bridge, which is constructed out of 100% solid zirconia and pink tissue, represents the peak of both durability and lifespan.
In hybrid monolithic zirconia, you will experience
- Strength and beauty are best in this selection.
- Most people think this feels most like their original teeth.
- It has existed for almost 10 years.
- Durability and chip resistance that are best with zirconia.
4. Hybrid Porcelain-Metal Prosthesis
Cavities, infections, and chipped or broken teeth are common as people age. If enough of them are absent, chewing and even speaking may become difficult. Dentures are one therapeutic option, but they can be difficult to maintain; a hybrid prosthesis may be a preferable option.
If you have uncomfortable dentures or were thinking about getting dentures due to substantial tooth loss but lack bone tissue and mucosa, this type of prosthesis can aid you in a variety of ways, including:
- Enhance your chewing skills.
- Long-lasting with proper care
- It is soft and does not bother the mouth
- It brings back a smile
- It helps with speech
- Maintains the structural integrity of the jaw bone tissue
These four combination options can meet almost all of your All On 4 case needs. The Puche Dental Lab can help you figure out what kind of combination is best for you.
