Designed for patients who desire a fixed, permanent solution but may not qualify for traditional implants.
Dr. Lomartire may recommend fixed, implant-supported dentures, called Hybrid Dentures, for patients who have lost or are about to lose all of their natural teeth on an upper or lower arch. Hybrid Dentures combine the anchoring power of implants with the coverage of dentures. However, they eliminate the negative aspects of dentures, including slippage, clacking, loss of taste and other bothersome aspects. They also require only a few dental implants to secure the new teeth in place, thus allowing for faster recovery time, are more comfortable, and affix the dentures to the jaw permanently.
