Snap-On Dentures in Bend, OR
Snap-on dentures are dentures that are supported by two to four dental implants in each arch of the mouth. They are removable, like traditional dentures, but without any need for denture adhesives or creams. A way to think of snap-on dentures, also called denture implants, is that they are a treatment in-between traditional dentures and full-mouth dental implants in terms of maintenance, support, and cost.
Snap-on dentures require less effort to keep in the mouth and offer better support and less strain to keep in the mouth. For those who need more jaw bone support than traditional dentures can provide, snap-on implant dentures are a natural next step.
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.
