Bone Loss From Loss of Teeth

When you lose all your teeth, the bones in your jaw naturally begin to deteriorate. Without teeth, your jawbones have no support. As a result, time takes a toll on your face, causing your face to sink in and make you look older.

Excellent Replacement Teeth for Preventing Bone Loss

Hundreds of millions of people throughout the world experience tooth loss as a result of gum disease. In the United States alone, about 40 million people have no teeth. This problem can cause serious barriers to a person’s normal, everyday functioning. Without teeth, eating, speaking, and even the normal shape of your face are affected. In the past, few solutions were cost-effective enough. Additionally, there was a lack of technology allowing dentists to place replacement teeth effectively, so there was little a person could do if they suffered from teeth loss.

Today, there are a handful of solutions. But the most known for preventing bone loss is, by far, Hybrid Prosthesis. It’s a brand new procedure, and we’re proud to offer it to our patients with the help of Nebraska Oral and Facial Surgery. Nobel Biocare, a dental supply company, recently developed this technology to provide a more precise, cost-effective, and long-lasting option for those in need of replacement teeth. It utilizes a computer-guided implant surgery which allows our dentist in Lincoln, NE and the oral surgeon to prepare the final implants before the patient undergoes surgery. As a result, patients walk away with little postoperative discomfort and a brand new set of permanent teeth. In most cases, patients can resume regular routines the day after the procedure. Because the prosthesis is implanted to your jawbone, it prevents bone loss. As a result, your jaw helps maintain your face’s shape over time, unlike other methods of teeth replacement.

Here’s a testimonial from a patient who underwent Hybrid Prosthesis:

The Process of Hybrid Prosthesis

If you elect to have Hybrid Prosthesis, the process will be relatively simple, as follows:

1. Attend a Free Consultation At the consultation, you’ll discuss your treatment plan with Dr. Brad Alderman and Dr. Rallis. They’ll work through a customized plan for your particular needs and give you the total cost of the procedure.

2. Full Exam Upon deciding to undergo the Hybrid Prosthesis, you’ll once again meet with the dentists, and they’ll finalize your treatment plan. Then, they’ll prepare all the things they need for you to receive the treatment, and schedule the procedure.

3. Receive Dental Implants Next, you’ll surgically undergo treatment to receive your dental implants. Your implants will hold a temporary set of teeth. These teeth will look and feel just like real teeth. You’ll wear them only temporarily while a dental lab creates your truly permanent new teeth.

4. Post-Procedure Check-Up There is a short recovery period following the actual procedure. While your implants heal, you’ll have to eat soft food and come back in to ensure proper healing. But don’t worry: soon you’ll be able to eat anything you want without dismay!

5. Receive Permanent Teeth Finally, after your mouth is finished healing, you’ll receive your new, permanent teeth which will last you a lifetime. You’ll be able to say goodbye to no teeth or removable teeth, and you’ll take care of them by brushing every day. Congratulations!

Benefits of Hybrid Prosthesis

Most people get dentures after losing their teeth. However, we believe that the benefits of the Hybrid Prosthesis outweighs those of any other replacement teeth option.

1. Beautiful, Natural Teeth With the Hybrid Prosthesis, you can have beautiful and natural-looking teeth in one day. Even your temporary set of teeth will appear natural and beautiful, and you can be assured that they’ll be a great replacement teeth alternative.

2. Fast & Effective This procedure delivers the most effective results out of all dental implant options. As far as the implant part goes, this happens in a single appointment!

3. Optimal Safety and Comfort The procedure of the Hybrid Prosthesis uses gentle oral sedation, which ensures your comfort and safety.

4. More Cost-Efficient Overall, Hybrid Prosthesis is more cost-efficient than single multiple implants.

5. Maintains Bone Structure Hybrid Prosthesis helps to maintain bone structure, unlike other types of teeth replacements.

Among these benefits, this procedure will help you look and feel happier. Ultimately, it’s a healthier option than dentures, and it even gives you back the opportunity to have a full mouth of natural teeth.

Alternative Methods of Replacement Teeth

We know that the Hybrid Prosthesis isn’t for everyone. Those who can’t afford Hybrid Prosthesis will probably be looking at cosmetic dentures as their next option.

Cosmetic Dentures

Usually, a complete cosmetic denture will cost about $2500. The price can vary depending on a handful of factors, ranging anywhere from $300-$25,000. In general, you can assume that the price will reflect the quality of the denture. For instance, a $300 denture is much more likely to break than a $2500 denture.

Cosmetic dentures are fabricated over the course of several appointments. Unlike the Hybrid Prosthesis, it isn’t a dental implant. This means that it needs to be removed for cleaning each night, and must be kept out of the patient’s mouth until the morning. Our cosmetic dentures are made up of a high-quality acrylic nano-hybrid. This material is chip-resistant and tends to last longer than dentures made of other materials. Not only is each pair of dentures made custom, but the colors of the different denture parts are also custom. Our dentists in Lincoln, NE are able to match almost any tooth and gum shade with our cosmetic dentures.

Frequently Asked Questions about Teeth Replacement

Who should get Hybrid Prosthesis?

Those who have lost or are about to lose all of their teeth make great candidates for the Hybrid Prosthesis. Additionally, current denture wearers make great candidates for this procedure and our dentists in Lincoln, NE would be happy to explain all the benefits of the Hybrid Prosthesis.

Other dentists told me I’m not a candidate for a dental implant. Am I a candidate for Hybrid Prosthesis?

Nine out of ten people who are not candidates for traditional dental implants are able to receive the Hybrid Prosthesis right here from a dentist near me in Lincoln, NE. This is because other implant procedures use bone grafting or sinus augmentations. Hybrid Prosthesis uses neither. So yes, it’s very likely you are a candidate!

Do I need to use certain products to wear hybrids?

Because the bridgework is secured to implants, there is no need to use denture adhesives or other products used to clean or store dentures. It is recommended to use a Waterpik to maintain the hybrid and keep gums and tissues healthy.

I have a strong gag reflex and cannot tolerate a traditional denture. Will hybrids rest against the roof of my mouth?

Hybrids are less bulky than dentures and do not rest against the palate at all. This allows you to sense temperatures of food and taste normally, unlike with traditional upper dentures.

How long can I expect my hybrid to last?

Hybrids have extremely high success rates. Typically hybrids last for years.. There are some factors that can influence the success rates of hybrids. Smoking, drinking excessive amounts of alcohol, not following post-operative instructions or dietary restrictions, patients with diabetes, osteoporosis or other specific medical conditions can affect the longevity of your hybrids.

Should I take time off of work?

It is a good idea to take a few days off to relax after your surgery. However, if you are in generally good health and are feeling great, you can return to work the next day.

Are there any follow-up visits after implant placement?

The oral surgeon would like to assess your healing 10-14 days after placement to ensure everything is healing and there are no signs of complications.
