The Hybridge Full Mouth Restoration Protocol is a solution-based options that replace all of the teeth on either the upper jaw, the lower jaw, or both. Many patients arrive having had their natural teeth already removed, while others are just starting to evaluate alternatives to their natural teeth. If the natural teeth still remain, a thorough exam and consultation with a Hybridge Certified doctor will determine if replacing the natural teeth is an appropriate option.

Once the decision has been made to replace all the teeth in one or both jaws, three dental implant treatment alternatives are available.

Option 1: The Hybridge Full Arch Dental Implant Restoration

The Hybridge Full Mouth Dental Implant Treatment permanently replaces up to 12 teeth in either the upper or lower jaw, supported on five or six dental implants, in as little as three to 16 weeks. Full function and esthetics are restored, resulting in a long-lasting and healthy mouth.

Upper Hybridge Full Arch Dental Implant RestorationHybridge Full Mouth Dental Implant Resoration - Upper Arch

As a rule, the Hybridge Full Mouth Protocol requires that any remaining upper teeth have to be removed and the jaw has to heal for 11 weeks before the six dental implants can be surgically inserted. We refer to this as a two-stage process. Temporary teeth will be inserted on the same day of the extractions, so you will go without teeth. Once healed, a computer-generated surgical guide is made to plan the best locations for the implants.

With extreme accuracy, the dental implants can be surgically placed, typically with a minimally invasive technique. Once the implants are inserted, the Hybridge Laboratory creates a single restoration that not only replaces the teeth, but the gum line as well. The materials used to make the Hybridge Full Arch are dependent on patient needs. The Hybridge Full Arch treatment can be finalized within 5 weeks of implant placement. The total upper treatment can be completed from start to finish in 16 weeks.

Lower Hybridge Full Arch Dental Implant RestorationHybridge Full Mouth Dental Implant Restoration - Lowerm Arch

Typically, the Hybridge Protocol for the lower teeth has only one surgical phase. Unlike the upper, the extraction of the remaining lower teeth and the surgical placement of the dental implants can be done in the same appointment. At the end of the surgical visit, temporary Hybridge teeth will be inserted so that there is no time when a patient will go without teeth. Hybridge Express offers a temporary Hybridge, which can be securely attached just like the final Hybridge Full Arch. It can be inserted within the first 24 hours. Once the dental implants are in place, treatment can be completed is as quickly as 5 weeks.

Hybridge Full Mouth Dental Implant Restoration

Many patients choose to have their entire mouth restored at the same time with Upper and Lower Hybridge Full Arch. There are many advantages to having them done simultaneously. Efficiencies exist when working on both jaws at the same time, resulting in reduced appointments, decreased cost, and the ability to idealize esthetics and tooth position. The typical treatment time is about 16 weeks. Again with this Protocol, there is never a time when a patient will be without a beautiful set of temporary teeth. The Hybridge team is keenly sensitive to a patient's need for comfort during the Hybridge process and the expectation that the process be completed in as short of a period of time as possible. A written treatment outline is provided so that Hybridge patients can be aware of what the treatment sequence of appointments will be, as well as the timing between each appointment.

Once complete, the Hybridge Full Arch provides fully restored function with unparalleled esthetics. Natural smiles are created using the finest modern materials. There are three alternative materials available that are used to make a Hybridge Full Arch—acrylic, Prettau Zirconia ceramic, and cross-linked PMMA. Each of these different materials has its own set of indications based on a patient's habits and history. A Hybridge Certified dentist will decide
which the best option is.

Option 2: Hybridge Express

At Hybridge, patients who are going through a full mouth restoration will always receive temporary teeth the same day their natural teeth are removed. Typically, the temporary teeth are in the form of a temporary denture.  For some patients, wearing a temporary denture during the healing phase is uncomfortable or does not provide them the level of function desired.  Hybridge Express can be an answer for those patients.  Hybridge Express is a temporary Hybridge that can be placed either the day after the removal of the natural teeth, or 10 days later, during the suture removal appointment. Hybridge Express is made of a temporary material that is designed to last during the healing phase, while allowing the patient to have a fixed restoration in place for a greater sense of comfort and function.

Option 3: The Hybridge Overdenture

Conventional dentures are sometimes a good option for full mouth teeth replacement because they can be a more cost-effective way to replace all of the upper teeth, lower teeth, or both. With well-made complete dentures, patients should minimally expect to restore their esthetics and facial support.

The biggest disadvantages of complete dentures are a greatly diminished ability to chew due to their poor stability and retention. Most denture wearers would say that wearing a lower denture is much more limiting and problematic than wearing an upper denture. Because a lower denture is often a patient's biggest complaint, implants can be used to improve the functionality of a denture by creating a mechanism for it to snap on to the implants. This type of implant-retained denture is often called an Overdenture.

This type of implant solution is most often used on the lower jaw to improve a loose or unstable lower denture. We would rarely recommend this type of a treatment on the upper jaw, as it doesn't work as well as on the lower.

For patients looking for a better way to wear a lower denture, the Hybridge Overdenture establishes stability and retention by snapping a removable denture onto at least two dental implants. Using an "implant attachment" mechanism on the top of an implant, the denture snaps on and off upon insertion and removal. This solution significantly improves the level of comfort and function that is typically at issue with a lower denture. Patients looking for the most cost-effective way to avoid the challenges of wearing a denture should consider the Hybridge Overdenture.
