Hybrid Dental Bridge
A hybrid dental bridge, also known as an implant-supported hybrid bridge, is a type of dental prosthesis that replaces missing teeth. It combines the benefits of dental implants and dental bridges to provide a long-lasting and secure solution for people with missing teeth. The dental implants are placed into the jawbone to provide a stable foundation for the bridge, while the bridge itself is made up of artificial teeth that are supported by the implants.
The bridge is typically made of strong, lightweight material, such as zirconia or porcelain, and is custom-made to fit the patient’s mouth.
The artificial teeth are designed to match the color and shape of the patient’s natural teeth, providing a natural-looking result.
One of the main benefits of a hybrid dental bridge is that it is a fixed solution, meaning that the bridge is permanently attached to the implants and cannot be removed by the patient. This provides a high level of stability and functionality, allowing patients to eat, speak, and smile with confidence.
However, a hybrid dental bridge requires a significant amount of preparation and planning, as well as a longer treatment time. It also requires a high level of oral hygiene to maintain the health of the implants and prevent complications.
