Hybrid Prosthesis: What is it?
A Hybrid Prosthesis is an implant-supported fixed dental prosthesis that is an excellent choice for edentulous patients. The Hybrid Prosthesis is a top solution for dental cases that need extreme restoration. The Hybrid Prosthesis is superior for restoring functions such as chewing and speech. Also, the Hybrid Prosthesis can restore your overall aesthetic appearance.
Can you picture starting your day with dentures and coming home that night with permanent teeth? Permanent teeth that are not only held in place but also give you a natural-looking smile again? Imagine no more infected or broken teeth, constant dental discomfort, or feeling embarrassed about smiling. For many people, this is a new reality that can take place if they make an appointment at Coddington Dental.
We’re excited to introduce a new revolutionary procedure, Hybrid Prosthesis or “Teeth-in-One-Day!” Our dentists have teamed up with oral surgeons at Nebraska Oral & Facial Surgery to simplify this process for you. Thanks to advanced computer-guided treatment planning and surgical techniques we, along with our partners at Nebraska Oral & Facial Surgery, can provide patients immediate implant restorations, making the Hybrid Prosthesis one of the top tooth replacement options.
If you have heard that you need dentures or are unhappy with your dentures, we encourage you to try this alternative treatment. Call us today for a consult appointment to determine if you are a good candidate for a Hybrid Prosthesis in Lincoln, NE. An article published in the European Journal of Dentistry has great information along with images to help illustrate the Hybrid Prosthesis procedure.
What is a Hybrid Prosthesis?
Hybrid Prosthesis involves replacing missing teeth with the support of multiple dental implants. With a Hybrid Prosthesis, you can have teeth that function and look like natural teeth. Patients with who’ve undergone Hybrid Prosthesis will never have to remove their replacement teeth for cleaning because of their new teeth clean like natural teeth.
Due to the strength of the replacement teeth and stabilization provided by the implants, you can leave your appointment with a new smile. The entire procedure is complete in one day. Your new set of teeth will look completely natural and will allow you to experience the food and activities you love without too much lost time. Patients may experience sensitivity the day following the procedure and can eat a soft food diet immediately after the procedure. Patients can even return to work within a few days following the procedure.
If you know anyone embarrassed about losing their teeth or someone who needs extensive improvements to their smile, please refer them to Dr. Brad Alderman for a consultation at any of our Nebraska Family Dentistry locations.

Benefits of Hybrid Prosthesis
Some of the advantages of Hybrid Prosthesis include never having to experience the crippling effects of loose dentures, messy adhesives, removing teeth at night, slipping during speaking or smiling, or the bad breath associated with dentures. Also, a Hybrid Prosthesis has a short recovery time, is easily cleaned, lets you eat your favorite foods, and has long-term success.
How Can You Have Teeth-in-One-Day?
Nearly all of our patients can be a candidate for teeth-in-one-day. Almost 90 percent of patients who have heard they are not candidates for traditional dental implants may qualify for this less invasive procedure. The ideal candidates for teeth-in-one-day are patients currently wearing dentures or who need to have their teeth removed.
Preparation will consist of the oral surgeon taking a CAT scan of your jawbone. A CAT scan allows us to craft and plan the implant placement without you sitting in our chair.
Teeth-in-one-day takes about two hours per arch, and because you’re under sedation, the procedure will be over in a flash. You’ll wake up with multiple implants placed by your oral surgeon, then your dentist at Coddington Dental will complete your transformed smile with temporary teeth that look identical to the permanent teeth you’ll receive after you’ve fully healed.
We will request to see you for a few check-ups following your procedure to check in on your healing process. Your initial investment includes check-ups.
After your mouth has fully healed, we replace your temporary teeth with your new permanent teeth, which is a similar procedure to having a temporary tooth cap replaced with a permanent crown.
Cost of Hybrid Prosthesis: Teeth-in-One-Day
The investment for a Hybrid Prosthesis includes the cost of surgery, temporary implant bridges, and permanent Hybrid Prosthesis. All fees for your Coddington Dental implants and Nebraska Oral & Facial Surgery oral surgery and implants are combined and will not change. The entire process is one fee, which includes follow-up appointments. You’ll know how much your new smile will cost during your consultation, and that number won’t change.
We offer financing options for patients who qualify and will do everything within our power to make treatment affordable. Schedule a consultation appointment today so that you can make an informed decision about an excellent path for you.
