Typically, the Hybridge Protocol for the lower teeth has only one surgical phase. Unlike the upper, the extraction of the remaining lower teeth and the surgical placement of the dental implants can be done in the same appointment. At the end of the surgical visit, temporary Hybridge teeth will be inserted immediately so that there is no time when a patient will go without teeth. Hybridge Express offers a temporary Hybridge, which can be securely attached just like the final Hybridge Full Arch. It can be inserted within the first 24 hours. Once the dental implants are in place, treatment can be completed is as quickly as 5 weeks.
