Snap-on dentures are an excellent choice for anyone looking for a secure and reliable solution to replace missing teeth. Unlike traditional dentures, they are mounted on dental implants, providing a stronger, more stable foundation for the dentures. This ensures greater bite stability and improved support, resulting in a more comfortable and confident smile.
Snap-On Dentures in Firestone, CO
Snap-on dentures, also known as denture implants, offer a middle ground between traditional dentures and full mouth dental implants. These dentures are supported by two to four dental implants in each arch of the mouth and are completely removable without the need for adhesives or creams. Unlike traditional dentures, snap-on dentures provide more stability and support, and their cost falls between that of traditional dentures and dental implants.
Snap-on implant dentures are a great choice for those who require more jaw bone support than traditional dentures can offer. These dentures require less effort to remain in place and provide better support and less strain on the jaw muscles. They are a great alternative to traditional dentures and can help those with weakened jaw bones enjoy the same benefits of traditional dentures.
What's the difference between snap-on dentures and full mouth dental implants?
The primary distinction between snap-on dentures and full mouth dental implants is that snap-on dentures cover the roof of the mouth, making them feel less natural-looking than full mouth implants. Full mouth implants, unlike snap-on dentures, are permanently fixed in the jaw and provide a more natural feel and look.
Snap-on dentures provide superior support compared to traditional dentures in both bite and bone, but still offer less support than permanent fixed dental implants.
Maintenance for snap-on implant dentures is the same as for traditional dentures, which requires removing them to soak and clean them. As for full mouth dental implants, they should be brushed and flossed just like natural teeth.
Can I sleep with snap-on dentures in?
It is essential to remove your implant-supported dentures from your mouth every night. Doing so gives your mouth a break from the dentures and allows your gums to breathe, reducing the risk of sores, discomfort, and bone loss. Additionally, taking the dentures off at night also allows you to soak and clean them.
