Snap On Dentures

Snap-on dentures are a safe and effective implant-supported teeth restoration method. They are ideal for anyone who needs more support and stability than traditional dentures provide. Snap-on dentures offer significantly more support and bite stability than traditional dentures.

Snap On Dentures in Bend, OR

Snap on dentures, also known as denture implants, rely on the support of two to four dental implants per arch, offering a more stable alternative to traditional dentures. Unlike traditional dentures, snap on dentures eliminate the need for adhesives or creams due to their secure attachment to implants. Landing somewhere between traditional dentures and full-mouth dental implants, they strike a balance in terms of maintenance, support, and cost-effectiveness.

Enhanced Stability and Comfort with Snap On Dentures

With snap on dentures, individuals enjoy enhanced stability and reduced strain compared to conventional dentures. This makes them easier to maintain and wear comfortably throughout the day. Particularly beneficial for those needing additional jaw bone support, snap on implant dentures represent a logical progression in dental treatment.

  • What are snap on dentures?

    Snap on dentures, also known as implant-supported overdentures, are a type of removable dental prosthesis that are supported by dental implants. They provide a more stable and secure fit compared to traditional dentures, as they snap onto implants that have been surgically placed in the jawbone.

  • What's the difference between snap on dentures and full-mouth implants?

    A major difference between full-mouth implants and snap on dentures is that snap on dentures cover the roof to the mouth. This can make them feel less natural than full-mouth implants.

    In terms of both bite and bone support, snap-on dentures are superior to traditional dentures but still offer less support than permanent fixed dental implants.

    Maintenance for snap on implant dentures is identical to traditional dentures. That means needing to remove them to soak and clean them. Full-mouth dental implants can and should be brushed and flossed just like normal teeth.

  • Can I sleep with snap on dentures in?

    Snap on implant-supported dentures should always be removed at night. This is important so that your mouth can get a rest from them, including the roof of your mouth. This lets your gums breathe and helps avoid sores, discomfort, and bone loss.

  • Are snap on dentures removable?

    Yes, snap on dentures are removable. They can be easily taken out for cleaning and maintenance.

  • How long do snap on dentures last?

    With proper care and maintenance, snap on dentures can last for many years. However, they may require periodic adjustments or replacement over time.
