Snap-On Dentures

Snap-on dentures rest on dental implants, anchoring them in place and preventing movement and lift. Because snap-on dentures rest on dental implants and not your jawbone like traditional dentures, they cause less irritation and feel more similar to natural teeth.

Snap-on dentures increase your chewing efficiency, improve your speech, and boost your confidence. Many patients find social interactions more enjoyable because they don’t have to worry about their dentures slipping or dislodging.

Snap-On Dentures Frequently Asked Questions

Do snap-on dentures have a palate?

An upper snap-on denture is palateless. Unlike a removable upper denture that suction from the roof of your mouth holds in place, dental implants secure a snap-on denture. A palateless denture can enhance your ability to taste food.

Do snap-on dentures hurt?

Snap-on dentures do not hurt. Precise planning ensures the denture fits and functions comfortably. The surgery to place dental implants is not painful either. A local anesthetic will numb your gums, and sedation dentistry will help you relax during dental implant placement. Your doctor will explain how to manage swelling and discomfort during recovery.

Do you need bone grafting for snap-on dentures?

If you lack enough quality bone to support dental implants, your dentist may recommend a bone graft or an alternative to a snap-on denture. Your 3D CT scan will reveal your jawbone volume.

How do snap-on dentures look?

A snap-on denture looks like a removable complete denture, but its base has metal grooves that snap onto dental implants. One of our dentists will take impressions of your mouth to create a custom denture that fits your upper or lower arch—or both.

How long is recovery with a snap-on denture?

It takes about four months for dental implants to fuse with your jawbone. Afterward, a dentist will expose the implants, allowing about two weeks for your gums to heal around the implants. Next, your dentist will take impressions of your mouth for your final denture.

What can you eat with a snap-on denture?

During recovery after implant placement, you will be limited to a soft-food diet for about four months. Soft foods prevent disturbing the implants. After healing, you can enjoy your favorite foods again.

What is a snap-on denture?

A snap-on denture is a custom implant-retained denture. An arch of replacement teeth snaps onto two or more dental implants. Denture stability increases with the number of implants you receive. Unlike a fixed implant-supported denture that a dentist screws onto dental implants, you can remove a snap-on denture.
