Dental Prosthesis
Hybrid prosthesis is a kind of dental prosthesis that is similar to the total prosthesis in terms of looks. In the case of the hybrid prosthesis, the prosthesis is anchored on the teeth and implants. Based on the pathway based on which the pressure of chewing is transferred to the jaw bones, there are bone supported and mucosa supported prosthesis. In the case of hybrid prosthesis, both these options are possible. A mucosa supported prosthesis generally required only two anchor elements per jaw. This way, the stability of the prosthesis is increased significantly. The palate placed in the upper jaw can be avoided through this method. Since there are many taste buds in the upper palate, avoiding a cover prosthesis also lets you enjoy a better quality of life. The number of anchor elements to be used depends upon a number of considerations such as remaining teeth and implant system. In bone supported hybrid prosthesis, the pressure is transferred to the bones via implants and the prosthesis doesn’t actually come in contact with the mucosa. This way of partial prosthesis requires at least four implants in lower jaw and six in upper jaw. The advantage of this dental prosthesis is that there are fewer bite problems and improved chew quality. Pressure spots are not created but a hybrid denture also costs more.
