These dentures are called “snaps” in our office. We do many snap cases a year, and would be happy to consult with you about if this treatment would be a good fit for your denture situation.
What are Snap-on Dentures?
Snap-on dentures are usually two implants located in the front of your mouth. They hold dentures in place better so they don’t slide around as much. There is still some rocking movement in the back, but most patients who receive snaps and have had dentures in the past tend to see a large improvement after the snaps are installed.
Can snaps be installed in both the upper and lower arches?
While snaps can be installed on both the upper and the lower arches, upper snap-on dentures are generally not accepted as a good long-term solution. Lower dentures on the other hand, have good long-term patient satisfaction, especially in patients who have been wearing dentures for a while.
Who is a good candidate for Snap On Dentures?
Patients who have worn dentures in the past are generally who find the solution to be the best. For those who have previously worn dentures, they are used to having teeth moving around in their mouth and are wanting a cost-effective way to keep the lower arches in place.
I’ve never worn dentures, but need full replacement. Would I be a good candidate for snaps?
Snaps are always an option for full replacement. For those who have not experienced denture movement, it does take some getting used to the rocking movement on the back-end of the arch. For most people who have never worn dentures, the All-On-Four dentures are suggested. Learn more about that procedure on our page.
What is the first step in the snaps process?
The first step to get started on receiving snaps is a consultation. Because each patient has a unique situation, we will take a 3D x-ray and create a customized plan for you and walk you through the next steps.
