A hybrid denture (also called a fixed-detachable denture) allows people to gain back most of their teeth in the form of a bridge, which has some components like a denture (such as gum tissue), but is fixed on the supporting implants. It is not removable, but it is not quite like having individual teeth, like your real teeth. Hybrid dentures are most frequently used when there is a lot of bone loss, for example if you have been a long term denture wearer. The hybrid restoration supplies both teeth and artificial gums to give you back your proper facial support, and offers the best esthetic control. In the upper jaw, we usually need to have 6 implants while on the lower we can usually use between 4- 5 implants.
