Snap-On Dentures use implants to secure your dentures in place. This is important for keeping them stable.
Snap-On Dentures eliminate the need for creams or adhesives while providing all the advantages of stable dentures. They:
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.
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 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.
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.
