Do you need a new denture? Whether your old one has worn out and reached the end of its life or if you are getting a denture for the first time, you have a lot of options now that weren’t possible before. One of those options is a hybrid denture. Here is how it differs from a traditional denture, and why it has more benefits.
If you get traditional dentures, you’ll need to take them out and clean them every day. You can’t clean traditional dentures while they are in your mouth because they move around and make it impossible to get all of your mouth clean. By contrast, a hybrid denture is permanently placed in your mouth, which makes cleaning a much easier process. You can easily floss a hybrid denture just like you would natural teeth.
The hybrid denture is often more comfortable than a standard denture. The hybrid denture is securely in place and cannot move. A traditional denture moves quite a bit, and it can continue to move even if you use adhesive, which can itself be uncomfortable. A hybrid denture doesn’t allow food to become trapped between the denture and the gum either, which is a big problem for many denture wearers.
A traditional denture takes quite some time to get used to. Even after you have had dentures for a long time, you may still occasionally find it difficult to speak or chew with your dentures. On the other hand, a hybrid denture doesn’t have that gap and eliminates this very troublesome problem.
