What Are Hybrid Dentures, And How Do They Differ From Normal Dentures?

Dentures In A Drinking Glass

Dentures are a great way to replace a missing tooth or multiple missing teeth. But a much stronger, longer-lasting, and greater cosmetic look comes from hybrid dentures in Largo, FL. These implant-supported dentures have dental implant posts sent into the jawbone to help hold the device in place and making them much more permanent than regular dentures. Florida Dental Centers are happy to share the differences and benefits of dentures and hybrid dentures.


A “Not-So-Subtle” Difference!

Do not be fooled by the word “dentures” in hybrid dentures as they are different options. Dentures offer a more affordable way to replace some or multiple missing teeth. With our standard plan of $850 or elite plan of $1150, dentures are a much easier option financially on some. Of course, there are certain drawbacks to dentures such as slippage, where the dentures shift out of place, and the meticulous cleaning process. They are still able to get the job done and provide individuals the ability to chew their food and properly engage with life again.

Hybrid dentures are similar to dentures in the materials use to create them but they are set into the jawbone making them a permanent solution rather than a more temporary one. Much like standard dental implants, posts are sunk into the jawbone and the dentures are modified to attach to those posts to avoid slippage and the pain that can come with slippage. This increases the cost by a few hundred dollars, making it more expensive – but it helps get rid of some of the worries with normal dentures. Not to mention, hybrid dentures can be cleaned like regular teeth. No more worries about complicated cleaning solutions!
