Snap-On, Snap-Off Dentures

Are you looking for an affordable solution to your terrible dentures? Traditional dentures tend to be very uncomfortable for most wearers. The dentures rub and irritate gums. It seems like no amount of adhesive will really keep the dentures stable! Every smile or every bite of food makes you nervous that you’re about to lose your chompers, and that’s no way to live. On the other hand, a full dental implant solution is just not in your budget, even with a payment plan. You need something in between, and we have that solution! Snap-ons, or the mini-dental implant solution for your lower denture.

Your lower denture gets more of a workout during the day because it is constantly going up and down. Your lower jaw moves a lot more than the upper because the upper is a part of your skull, while the lower jaw is held on by the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). By stabilizing the bottom jaw, you will see a huge improvement in the way your dentures work. We used to also stabilize the upper jaw, but we no longer think that is beneficial.

The Process

Once you’ve made the decision and had your initial consult, you are ready to set up your appointment for mini-implants. When you arrive, we will put you under sedation. Then, we will insert mini implants directly into your jaw bone. You will also receive a new pair of dentures with metal housings that will connect directly to the implants, or “Snap-On”. This allows you the ability to remove your teeth while also holding them steady throughout the day. In other words, you can have your cake and eat it, too!

Snap-Ons are one of our most popular procedures because you receive some of both worlds at a fraction of the cost. It is also a virtually pain-free procedure with a quick recovery time. Our patients love it, and you will too! Contact us today to set up your appointment. We can’t wait to show you how much better your dentures can be!
