Are you missing full arches of teeth? Do you want your smile back? The dental professionals at Palmetto Smiles offer fixed hybrid dentures to patients in their Florence, SC office. This solution can help restore form and function to dental patients. But why should missing teeth be replaced, and how do fixed hybrid dentures work?

Why Replace Missing Teeth?

If missing teeth are not placed soon enough, multiple problems can occur:

  • Overcrowding
  • Shifting teeth
  • Tooth loss
  • Facial sagging
  • Difficulty biting and chewing
  • Tooth decay

However, restorative dentistry solutions can provide long-lasting and beautiful results. Fixed hybrid dentures in particular offer multiple benefits to patients, including:

  • Restored ability to chew and speak with confidence
  • A permanent and secure replacement for lost teeth: no slipping
  • No need for daily adhesives to keep your smile in place
  • Minimized irritation of the gums and soft tissues

If you think you may be a good candidate for fixed hybrid dentures or any other missing teeth restoration, call Palmetto Smiles at (843) 203-5155. Our staff will work with you to find a solution that best fits your budget, goals, and oral health.

Treatment with Fixed Hybrid Dentures

Before placing the dentures, Dr. Sang will evaluate your oral health to determine if your jaw bone is healthy enough to support the implants. Patients who have a healthy jawbone are great candidates for fixed hybrid dentures, although bone grafting can be done in some cases to prepare patients for a restoration. Dr. Sang will utilize digital diagnostics to create a custom treatment plan that fits your needs.

Fixed hybrid dentures are custom dentures that are secured using several dental implants. Four or more dental implants can be placed to secure the denture. Dental implants consist of titanium posts that are placed into the jawbone. After a healing period of 3 to 6 months, the denture can be attached. This solution provides natural-looking and long-lasting results to patients while restoring the function of their teeth.
