What Are Hybrid Dentures And Fixed-Detachable Prostheses?
Hybrid dentures, or fixed-detachable prostheses, are dentures that attach to four or more implants in the jaw. They do not rub against the gums like removable dentures can, and they work much more like natural teeth, opening up a wider range of food possibilities to the patient.
Taking Care Of Your Fixed-Detachable Prosthesis
Because hybrid dentures are not removable, the cleaning process is different than with traditional dentures, and it’s also a little different from cleaning natural teeth. In order to maintain healthy gums and jaw bone, it is critical to clean under and around the dentures as well as cleaning the actual teeth. We also recommend that you come in to Saint Orthodontics on a regular basis so that we can remove them for professional cleaning.
