Implant Care:  The Fixed Implant Hybrid Prosthesis

(Immediate “Teeth in a Day” Approach)

“Teeth in a Day” Approach (This Page)

Conventional / Computer Guided Approach

The Fixed Hybrid is actually the original usage of dental implants, chronicled as the “high-water prosthesis” by the inventor of the modern root form implant, Swedish Orthopeadic Surgeon Dr. Branemark.


This is essentially a reduced, modified denture affixed to 4 or more implants.  A very complex restoration, it is also the subject of much discussion, since it is a treatment whereby the underlying implants can be precisely placed using a computer guided 3D printed surgical guide.  This results in a delay in placement of the prosthesis.   


Or, the implants can be installed “free-hand”  and a temporary denture can be bolted to the new implants all at once (“Teeth in a Day”).
