Hybrid implant system
Hybrid implant system is a newer, safer and
very effective system for the rehabilitation of the edentulous area of oral cavity.
These are pre-fabricated malleable thin elongated laminar plate having
vestibular anchoring part with 3-4 screw holes and a stump called abutment. It
is called hybrid because they use screws which is fixed inside the jaw bone and
the abutment projecting occlusally. Thesetypes of implants are quite recent,
they were first used few years ago i.e., in 2014 Varghese Mani et al introduced
hybrid implants a novel implant system and it works wonders especially for
people who have very little bone. Usually people with lesser jaw bone have to
undergo sinus lift procedures and even then the success rate is very low. But
hybrid implants are the best option for these patients. Treatment time and
consolidation period is much lesser than the conventional endosseous implant.And
patients can get their teeth much earlier.
The procedure goes like incision is placed, mucoperiosteal flap is elevated. Now the alveolar bone is exposed and the blade of the implant is molded accordingly. It is fixed on to the ridge using titanium screws. Exposing the abutment occlusally the flap is closed using sutures. Subsequent follow up should be done till it heals and then the patient can go for FPD Bridge. So whatever may be the complaint whether it’s a weaker bone or sinus close to arch, we have a safer and cost efficient technique for your fixed teeth.
