Before we talk about hybrid denture repair. Do you currently wear removable (full or partial) dentures and have grown tired of the daily struggles that accompany your dentures, the discomfort, continuing expenses and need for repairs? Have you been told you are not a candidate for dental implants because of bone loss in your jaw? Hybrid dentures might be the solution you are looking for.
Why A Hybrid Denture?
A hybrid denture is a set of teeth that looks and feels like natural teeth. It’s a cross between a traditional fixed bridge and a traditional denture. This procedure is usually the best option for people who have a lot of bone loss in their jaws.
This procedure offers long-term stability and the health benefits of dental implants. It works for people who are missing all of their teeth in an arch. Unlike traditional dentures, hybrid ones are firmly attached to the implants. After they have healed, the abutments are connected to the framework. This procedure eliminates the need to replace the teeth every day.
Hybrid Denture Implant Repairs
Hybrid dentures are more comfortable than removable ones. They can also make eating and drinking easier since the upper palate is left open. Also, they are very secure and can resist shifting out of place. Aside from replacing single missing teeth, dental implants are also used to support hybrid dentures.
Getting dental implants is a simple procedure that involves drilling small holes into the jaw to create a strong base for the replacement teeth. After the procedure, the implants are placed into the jaw and are fused with the bone. The goal is to create a strong base for the new teeth.
Although hybrid implants are long-lasting, they are also prone to failure due to their nature. Fortunately, they can be repaired using a special laboratory operated by Sweet Comfort Dentures in Port Orange (near Daytona Beach). If you need your hybrid dentures repaired contact us today.
Types of Denture Repair Services Offered
There are also various types of denture repair services that can be performed to get hybrid dentures working properly. Some of these services include the repair of hybrid dentures, broken Denture Teeth, and the replacement of Denture Teeth. They can also help restore the appearance of worn hybrid dentures.
The Repairing of Broken Hybrid Dentures
Since hybrid dentures are made of high-quality materials, they can usually be repaired if they are put together properly. It is very seldom that a hybrid denture breaks due to its quality. If the pieces are assembled properly, they can be repaired.
However, if the pieces are missing, it can be a bit challenging to determine how to put them back together. Having an impression is also helpful to guide the dentist in making the right adjustments.
Repairing Cracked Hybrid Dentures
Although the exact steps for repairing a broken or cracked denture are the same, the cost difference is usually less. Before the repair material is added, the cracked area should be widened to make it more durable.
Repairing and Replacing Hybrid Denture Teeth
If the missing teeth are near an existing denture tooth, they should be matched with the existing structure of the denture to make it look and feel the same. If a customer has lost a denture tooth, the repair may be complicated since there is no guide to make sure that the new teeth will fit in correctly.
Having an impression is also helpful if the patient needs to have a replacement tooth. It can be sent along with the new denture to be used as a guide.
