If you are missing several teeth Hybrid4 Fixed Bridge is the perfect alternative to Dentures, as they stay in your mouth permanently and look, feel and chew just like real teeth! We are sure you have some questions, so we had our Dental Implant Experts answer some frequently asked questions.

Questions before the Hybrid4 Fixed Bridge procedure

What is the Hybrid4 Fixed Bridge Procedure?

The Dental Implant Experts in Rancho Bernardo offer Hybrid4 permanent dentures. We have the best San Diego Hybrid4 dental implants.

Some of the best innovations come from seeing an existing problem and fixing it. Hybrid4 Fixed Bridge is no exception. Dentists and scientists saw the hassle and embarrassment that came with using dentures and realized there had to be a better way. Enter Hybrid4. Hybrid4 fixed bridge is a way to replace several missing and damaged teeth with relatively few dental implants. The name is derived from the fact that you can get a full arch of replacement teeth with only four implants.

How Do Hybrid4 Dental Implants Work?

Hybrid4 is very similar to normal dental implants, only on a larger scale. Your Dental Implant Expert will fuse a metal tooth root to your jawbone to act as the base of the eventual replacement tooth. They will do this four times per arch. Over time, the root will fuse with the jawbone, and at this point the permanent replacement teeth are installed. A full arch of fully functioning and realistic looking and feeling teeth will be connected to the four dental implants, creating a beautiful and full set of teeth.

Do I Need Hybrid4 Fixed Teeth?

Hybrid4 fixed teeth are offered exclusively for people who have enough damaged or missing teeth that replacing the full arch is the best option. If you have only one or two missing or damaged teeth, then it is probably a better idea to just get those teeth fixed on an individual basis with standard dental implants. You may also need Hybrid4 if you currently use dentures and are dissatisfied with all of the drawbacks that come with them.

What Makes a Good Candidate for Hybrid4 Dental Implants?

The most important part of being a quality candidate for Hybrid4 Fixed Bridge Solution is having healthy gums and a healthy jawbone. If you have poor oral health, you may not be able to support Hybrid dental implants and issues will spring up down the road. Also, it is essential to be a non-smoker and in relatively good health, as a few ailments (cancer, alcoholism, uncontrolled diabetes) make Hybrid4 very difficult. To be a good Hybrid4 candidate, you also must be dedicated to maintaining oral health, because if you do not floss or brush regularly the procedure may not go well.

The Dental Implant Experts offer the Hybrid4 fixed bridge procedure so you can get a full smile. 

Questions During the Hybrid4 Fixed Bridge procedure

How Long Does the Hybrid4 Fixed Bridge Solution Take?

We have another name for the Hybrid4 Fixed Bridge procedure here at the Dental Implant Experts' office. We call it "Teeth in a Day". That is because we are dedicated to making sure patients are in and out of the office with a full set of Hybrid4 fixed bridge in just one day. No returning to the office the next morning, no hassle, no problems. We estimate that Hybrid4 Fixed Bridge Procedure should take about 2.5 hours per full arch.

Does the Hybrid4 Fixed Bridge Procedure Hurt?

During the Hybrid4 Fixed Bridge procedure you will not feel a thing in most cases. The Dental Implant Experts use sedation dentistry to put you into a state of nirvana, and we don't mean we will be playing "Smells Like Teen Spirit" on repeat! You will be relaxed and comfortable, drifting in and out of sleep, and unable to feel anything that occurs. While you are not "put under" using general anesthesia, after the procedure you will not remember a thing. Sedation dentistry is a safe and efficient way to make Hybrid4 pain-free and keep your mind at ease.

Questions after the Hybrid4 Fixed Bridge procedure

Do I Leave the Hybrid4 Procedure with My New Set of Teeth?

Not quite. When you walk out of the Dental Implant Experts office in San Diego you will have a set of teeth attached to the four dental implants, however this is not your final set of teeth. Now don't misunderstand, the teeth you leave with aren't anything to scoff at. The temporary teeth are fully functional and look great. However, we need to wait for the implants to fuse fully with your jawbone before we attach the permanent teeth. Once we do so, you have your new set of teeth for life!

Are There Food Limitations with Hybrid4 Fixed Teeth?

Immediately after the procedure and the weeks following, we strongly suggest that you try to avoid overly chewy or tough foods. The dental implants holding the replacement arch need time to fully fuse the bone to make sure the teeth look and feel great in the long run. However, after approximately 6 to 8 weeks, you should be able to eat anything and everything without any limitations.

How Long Will My Hybrid4 Fixed Bridge Last?

Like anything, it all depends on your upkeep. If take great care of your Hybrid4 dental implants (more on that below) and see your dentist regularly, you should have a complete set of beaming teeth for the rest of your life! Special cases do pop up and this is by no means a lifetime guarantee, but with proper maintenance this procedure should last several decades. 

Do Hybrid4 Dental Implants Require Special Care?

Depends on what you mean by special. If by "special" you mean anything different then normal teeth, then no! Make sure to brush and floss regularly, see your dentist every six months, and swiftly address any issues that present themselves. Basically, just treat your new set of teeth exactly like a real set of teeth and you should be ready to go!

Hybrid4 Fixed Bridge Procedure vs Dentures

The Dental Implant Experts in San Diego have All-On-Four permanent dentures. If you need a full arc of teeth come to the Dental Implant Experts in Rancho Bernardo.

Losing your teeth is tough. There is something that is so vexing about permanently losing a part of your body. The teeth are gone and they are never going to come back. For far too long, the only option to turn to if you lost a significant amount of teeth was dentures. With this decision comes all of the pitfalls that come with dentures, and that is where Hybrid4 Fixed Bridges comes in. To help you see the obvious benefits, we compare Hybrid4 fixed teeth with classic dentures.

Eating Food with Dentures VS. Hybrid4 Fixed BridGE Solution 

Eating is one of the few things on this planet that most humans have in common. We eat for sustenance, we eat for pleasure, we eat socially and we eat privately. With that in mind, it is important to see how dentures and Hybrid4 change the way we eat.

Eating Food with Dentures

With dentures, meals can be a challenge. A 2015 U.S. Oral Care Survey (Biting Into Denture Care) revealed that 54% of respondents say their number one concern relating to dentures is getting food caught in or under their dentures. This can lead to those wearing dentures avoiding foods like corn on the cob, nuts or apples to try to make sure no food gets caught. Besides avoiding foods for aesthetic reasons, dentures also limit what foods you are allowed to eat. Tough foods (such as raw vegetable and nuts), sticky foods (such as gum and taffy) and hot liquids (such as tea or soup) are likely off limits if you wear dentures. 

Eating Food with Hybrid4 Fixed Bridge

Immediately after the procedure, it is best to avoid tough or sticky foods to allow the dental implants to fuse with your jawbone. After that, it is open season. Nothing is off limits. The world is your oyster and you have pearls of food to consume left and right. Hybrid4 Fixed Bridge Solution has a firmer base and is a more permanent solution, meaning all of your options are open!

Socializing with Dentures vs. Hybrid4 Fixed BridgE Solution

Humans need to interact with other humans. That is not some kind of far off philosophy espoused by some wild-haired extremist. This is pretty much a scientific fact. With that in mind it is important to investigate how dentures and Hybrid4 dental implants impact a patients ability to socialize.

Socializing with Dentures

One of the keys to wanting to get out there and meet new people is to be comfortable in your own skin. If you are frequently feeling self-conscious, it is hard to really bond with people and have fun. With dentures, you can often feel unsure about the way the dentures look to the people around you. People with dentures can sometime keep the dentures a secret to friends and family because they are embarrassed. Others are so ashamed of the dentures that they refrain from smiling! In the aforementioned Oral Car Survey, 20% of the respondents said that they do not smile in social situations to attempt to hide their dentures. A final issue can be dentures falling out. Talk about embarrassing!

Socializing with Hybrid4 Dental Implants

Hybrid4 dental implants are constantly hiding in plain sight; if someone does not point it out to you, chances are you will not notice it. Hybrid4 looks and feels exactly like real teeth, so much so that in side-by-side comparisons it is hard to tell who has Hybrid4 versus real teeth! All of the anxiety that dentures cause is alleviated with Hybrid4 Fixed Bridge. Plus, you never have to worry about Hybrid4 fixed teeth falling out because they are bonded to your mouth.

Care and MAINTENANCE of Dentures vs. Hybrid4 Fixed Bridge Solution

We all live busy lives. With time at a premium it is important to minimize distractions and tasks that take up precious moments of the day. That is why it is essential to investigate the needed care and maintenance for both dentures and Hybrid4. When every minute counts, taking the time to properly care for dentures or Hybrid4 may mean you have to sacrifice something else that is important to you.

Care and Maintenance of Dentures

The amount of care needed to keep your dentures in good condition sounds tiring. It is an extensive list, so we will try to be brief. First of all, after every meal you need to rinse of the dentures to get out any particles or crumbs of food. Also, anytime you remove your dentures, it is suggested to clean your mouth thoroughly. Each night, you need to soak the dentures to make sure they remain moist and keep the correct shape. This is just a grab bag of the type of maintenance needed to keep your dentures in great shape.

Care and Maintenance of Hybrid4 Fixed Bridge Solution

Brush your new set of teeth. Floss them. Visit the dentist regularly. As noted philosopher and poet Porky Pig once stated, "That's all folks".
