Replacing missing teeth is more than cosmetics. In fact, missing teeth are well known to cause many oral health issues. Decay, periodontal disease, and teeth shifting are a few of many issues likely to occur. For this reason, visiting your dentist after a sudden tooth loss is important.
Are you missing teeth? You may be wondering what are your best options. Fortunately, today’s technology offers patients with more customized choices to replace teeth. One option is called Hybrid Dentures. Learn more below and contact our office for a consultation.
What are Hybrid Dentures?
In short, hybrid dentures replace whole rows of teeth. This includes both the upper and lower jaws. Essentially, dental implants are inserted into the jawbone to anchor the denture permanently in place.
Most patients prefer hybrid dentures for many reasons. One reason is that maintenance is low. Patients simply need to brush their set as recommended and maintain their routine dental visits. Whereas, traditional dentures have to be removed at night and kept in water to prevent warping. Not needing to remove them allows patients to feel more at ease with false teeth.
Likewise, hybrid dentures are more secure. Because they are permanently fixed, patients can enjoy their favorite foods and smile confidently. There is no need for adhesives or special pastes. In other words, Hybrid Dentures allow you to live comfortably without fear of a loose set of dentures.
Also, the implants used to secure the denture is very durable. Dental implants are known to last from several years to a lifetime. Additionally, implants have over a 90% success rate. The durability and longevity of implants make Hybrid Dentures a great fit for many patients.
Are Hybrid Dentures Right for Me?
Replacing missing teeth will vary between patients. For this reason, scheduling a consultation is needed to determine if Hybrid Dentures are your best option. In general, patients lose teeth due to injury, severe decay, and periodontal disease. Replacing one tooth is typically done with a single implant or bridge. However, multiple teeth require a customized approach which could include Hybrid Dentures.
Overall, replacing missing teeth is recommended to maintain good dental health. While there are many options available, patients should inquire about Hybrid Dentures.
Hybrid Dentures are a great option for patients who need to replace several or all of their teeth. Maintenance is low since it requires standard tooth brushing and routine visits to the dentist.
