All on 4 Dental Restoration

Hybrid Bridges

Dr. Roderick A. Garcia is a Family and Cosmetic dentist and has practiced in Albuquerque for over 35 years. Among the many dental procedures Dr. Garcia provides for his patients, All on 4 restorations is one of them.

All on 4 restorations are called hybrid bridges. They are bridges made of acrylic teeth over an acrylic base that is supported by a very precisely fit titanium milled bar that is then attached via implant screws to implants placed in the patients upper or lower jaws.

For an all on 4 procedure to be done,all the teeth on the upper or lower jaw must be removed, 4 implants strategically placed by the surgeon then previously made dentures are modified and adapted to the implants and converted to temporary hybrid bridges.

Three months of healing is necessary for the implants to integrate to the bone before the permanent hybrid bridge is fabricated.

Sometimes implants are placed first and upper and lower dentures are worn as removable dentures to allow for implant healing without any load(pressure) on the newly placed implants.
