How do Hybridge Dental Implants Differ From Traditional Implants?

By: Dr. Carolyn B. Walker


Dental implants are a popular and often successful treatment option for tooth loss. Hybridge implants at Pipe Creek Dental Center are especially beneficial for creating a full arch of teeth that look and feel great.

General and cosmetic dentist Dr. Carolyn B. Walker is dedicated to helping patients achieve and maintain optimum oral health through implants. If you are considering tooth replacement solutions and want to learn the difference between Hybridge dental implants and conventional implants, call our office in Pipe Creek, TX. We provide the information needed to make an informed decision about your health.

Who needs dental implants?

Dental implants are recommended for patients missing one or more teeth due to decay, injury, or disease. Gaps in your smile may impact your appearance but can also lead to problems like gum disease and jaw deterioration. People of all needs and backgrounds can benefit from this innovative treatment.

Dental implants are an investment in your health and may last a lifetime with proper care. They are not susceptible to decay and preserve your facial structure to prevent bone loss in the jaw.

How do traditional dental implants work?

Traditional dental implants involve placing a titanium screw directly in the jawbone – the screw is what replaces the root of the missing tooth. A restoration (crown, bridge, or denture) is then placed on top of the screw. Our dental implant process in Pipe Creek, TX may take several months and require multiple procedures depending on your individual situation. Implants can safely replace one tooth or several teeth at the same time.

What is the Hybridge dental implant system?

Hybridge dental implants work much like conventional implants. The process still involves placing a restoration on top of a screw fully secured to the jawbone. However, Hybridge implants are designed to replace a full arch of teeth (upper or lower jaw). Our system at Pipe Creek Dental Center uses just five or six implants to provide a full set of replacement teeth.

Can anyone offer Hybridge implants?

Not all implant dentists are trained in Hybridge dental implants as a restoration option. Dr. Walker is a Hybridge implant-certified specialist and has completed extensive training in this program. Of course, patients need to undergo an assessment before being approved for treatment. The consultation process will include a review of your medical and dental history, a physical exam, and a CT scan of your jaw and teeth.

What results can I expect from Hybridge implants?

Replacing a full set of teeth with Hybridge implants offers many benefits. Patients can expect to see an improvement in their appearance, speech, and overall chewing ability when they work with our team at Pipe Creek Dental Center.

Temporary tooth replacement options like dentures tend to slip or fall out. This can cause feelings of embarrassment and make it difficult to speak or eat certain foods. Hybridge dental implants offer the stability needed to enjoy all your favorite activities and foods without worry.
