While dentures are a great way to restore your smile if you are missing teeth, sometimes changes to the gums and bone over time can result in an improper and less stable fit. Our dentists can provide snap-on dentures as an alternative option to restore your smile.
Snap-on dentures, sometimes referred to as overdentures or implant-supported dentures, are held in place by several strategically placed implants. The denture then “snaps on” to those implants to restore your smile and give you a stable and reliable solution for your teeth and oral health. Snap-on dentures typically require only two implants to be placed, though more may be recommended based on your individual needs. These implants provide a stable foundation for your dentures so that they can remain in position when you chew. They also make it easy for you to insert the denture and remove it for daily cleaning and maintenance.
Advantages of snap-on dentures include:
Attachments that prevent your denture from pressing down too hard on the gumline and causing discomfort or problems with the gums
Significantly greater function and comfort than traditional removable dentures
Increased stability for your dentures, including no “floating” or loose dentures
The ability to eat and drink what you want
