What Are Hybrid Implants?
Hybrid implants are similar to dental implants, however, rather than replacing one tooth, they replace many missing teeth for both aesthetic reasons and functionality. These are posts that are surgically inserted in the top and/or bottom arches of your mouth, then anchored to your jawbone. From there, they may subsequently be connected to either crowns or dentures. KFA Dental Excellence in Farmingdale, NY offers custom-made hybrid implants, giving you the smile you've been dreaming of. Made from durable, top-of-the-line materials for a comfortable fit, hybrid implants look natural and last anywhere from 5 – 10 years.

Can I Get Hybrid Implants?
You could be an ideal candidate for hybrid implants if you are missing many or all of your teeth. If you are looking for a long-lasting solution to replace your missing teeth, hybrid implants are a great option. It's important to note that you should have mostly healthy gums and normal bone surfaces so the implants can be inserted correctly and comfortably. Before receiving any procedure, one of our skilled dentists will evaluate your dental health to decide if hybrid implants are the best solution for you.
What Happens When I Get Hybrid Implants?
Before the procedure, someone on the KFA Dental Excellence team will take digital x-rays, scans, and impressions of your mouth to evaluate the placement of your implants. Hybrid implants are typically surgically inserted so you will need to go under anesthesia for this procedure. We will place the hybrid implants and from there, attach dentures or a temporary crown to the implant while your permanent fixtures are being made. This allows the implants time to fuse properly into the jaw. Once the implants are fully integrated, we will attach your permanent fixtures. From there, you'll have a smile worth posing for!
Is There Recovery Time with A Hybrid Implant?
It's likely we'll want to schedule a follow-up appointment a few weeks after getting your permanent crowns or dentures. This is important so we can check the fit and comfort of the hybrid implants and your crowns or dentures. Your implants should be brushed, flossed, and cared for in the same way as your natural teeth. If properly cared for, your implants should last up to ten years; however, it's vitally important to maintain your regular annual dental exams and biannual dental cleanings so we can ensure that your implants last as long as possible.
Hybrid implants are a durable and ideal way to replace your missing teeth. These secure and natural-looking implants restore the functionality of your own teeth. Our highly skilled dentists strive to make sure that your implants are comfortable for you and look as natural as possible.
