Snap-On Dentures

Snap-On Dentures use implants to secure your dentures in place. This is important for keeping them stable.

Why Snap-On Dentures?

Snap-On Dentures eliminate the need for creams or adhesives while providing all the advantages of stable dentures. They:

  • Improve chewing ability
  • Improve speech
  • Improve comfort
  • Prevent denture-related bone loss
  • Visually transform wrinkles near the mouth by replacing the collapsed lip support

Upper Vs. Lower Dentures

You can get Snap-On Dentures for your upper arch, your lower arch, or both. We recommend them to many patients who need lower dentures, which can slip and slide, resulting in continuous pain while eating. That said, Snap-On Dentures can also make your upper dentures even more comfortable.

To understand why, let us explain the differences between upper and lower dentures.

Upper Dentures

An upper denture is retained by using suction in a similar way to a suction cup on glass. Biting into a sandwich, yawning, or sneezing can cause an upper denture to lose suction and fall.

With the use of snaps, the combination of suction and snap will allow the Snap-On Denture to function much like natural teeth. The denture will feel stable and secure as a result.

Lower Dentures

Lower dentures are more challenging than upper dentures because there is no suction to hold them in. This lack of suction, along with jaw and tongue movement during chewing and speaking, can cause a lower denture to be very uncomfortable and sometimes painful.

Treatment Options

Dental implants are the most effective way to support a full set of dentures. While both ball attachments and Dolder Bar inserts are effective, the right treatment option will vary depending on your mouth.

In some cases, dentures give people a gagging sensation or make it difficult to swallow or speak. If you don’t like how dentures feel on the roof of your mouth, you may be a good candidate for Palateless Snap-On Dentures. 4-6 implants allow them to snap into place, keeping your teeth secure while improving your ability to taste food.

Finally, patients may choose to get Clasp-Free Snap-On Partials if they don’t like the look of clasps on their dentures. Snap-On Partials are a great alternative for people needing to replace several teeth since they function better and look more appealing than normal partials.

The number of dental implants needed to retain a partial depends on how many teeth the partial is replacing.

“I’m very glad I discovered Dr. Ferber. I came to him because I had a multitude of dental problems. The teeth were just a disaster, and I was totally embarrassed to smile. I kept replacing teeth and going in for crowns and root canals. Finally, I decided I wanted to go for a full-mouth implant.  I wish I had done this many years ago. The results are just exemplary. If you’re suffering like I was for many, many years, do not hesitate.”

“People ask me all the time where I got my new smile done and I tell them Dr. Ferber. Before I got the work done, I didn’t feel very confident. I didn’t want anyone to see me smile. And now, I love to smile, and I get so many compliments on my smile. It was an easy, painless experience. The staff was great, and the price was right.”


“Dr. Ferber really knows his stuff. Since I had my teeth really done over, I have my smile back. And I have my giggle back! I would say that anybody questioning what they should do, they should come here. The whole team treats you like you’re family. They’re warm and they care.”

“Your staff is very professional and friendly, as always. Who looks forward to going to the dentist?!?! Not many. But your office makes it seem less of a disagreeable task. Don’t misunderstand, I still don’t like going. But if I have to, I’m glad I go to your practice!”
