Snap-On Dentures

While traditional dentures are a great option for replacing missing teeth to restore your smile, changes to your gums and bone over time can result in a less perfect and stable fit. Our dentist may recommend snap-on dentures as an alternative option for restoring your smile and improving your oral health and function.

What Are Snap-On Dentures?

Snap-on dentures, also known as overdentures or implant-supported dentures, are a restoration which combines traditional dentures with implant dentistry. The dentures are held in place by several strategically placed implants, and “snap on” to the implants to restore your smile and provide you with a highly stable and reliable solution for your missing teeth. Most snap-on dentures require just two dental implants, though our dentist may recommend more to be placed depending on your individual needs. The implants anchor the dentures in your mouth, giving them a stable foundation so that you can chew, speak and smile with confidence. Plus, the fact that your dentures can “snap” in and out of your mouth make it easy for you to remove them for daily cleaning and maintenance.

Benefits of Snap-On Dentures

Snap-on dentures offer many advantages, including:

  • Attachments that prevent your dentures from pressing down too hard and causing discomfort or other problems with your gums
  • Greater function and comfort than traditional removable dentures
  • Increased stability, eliminating the possibility of “floating” or loose dentures
  • Improved confidence
  • Improved oral function and the ability to eat and drink whatever you would like
  • A cost-effective solution for replacing missing teeth
