What is a a hybrid denture design?

All-on-4 treatments feature a streamlined, hybrid denture design that follows the contour of your jaw, rather than covering the entire roof of your mouth the way a “plate” would.

The entire prosthesis is permanently affixed to four strategically placed implants, which support the biting and chewing forces in a way that resembles the function of healthy, natural teeth.

Only four implants are necessary because each one can withstand the weight and pressure of multiple teeth. Placing them in key points across the jaw allows a full-arch prosthesis to be stabilized in a predictable manner.
