Here are the most asked questions we hear about Snap On Dental Implant Dentures.

What is a Snap On Dental Implant Denture?

A Snap On Dental Implant Denture is essentially a traditional denture that has built-in buttons or locators on the underside of it. These locators correspond to a dental implant in your mouth, allowing it to “snap” onto it, much like buttoning a button. The snaps hold the denture in place. 

If you’re missing all of your teeth due to a dental condition or injury, you may want to consider Snap On Dental Implant Dentures as a form of replacement teeth. Unlike conventional dentures, which can potentially slip out of place, Snap On Dental Implant Dentures are more stable and versatile.

Dental implants anchored to the jaw hold the Snap On Dental Implant Dentures in place. Typically, two to four dental implants are used in each jaw, although depending on your need and your budget, you may have as many as six inserted. Once the dental implants are anchored, a dental implant-retained denture (also sometimes referred to as an overdenture) can be set in place.

Depending on how the overdenture and dental implants are created, the Snap On overdenture itself is removable so that it might be taken out during bedtime for cleaning purposes.

Are Snap On Dental Implant Dentures Worth It?

Dental implants have a high degree of patient satisfaction. Dental implants restore proper function to your mouth where traditional treatments can fall short. Dental implants also preserve jawbone and maintain facial structures, so the lips and cheeks don’t collapse. Many patients also say that their Snap On dentures are the most natural looking denture they have had. Snap On Dental Implant-Retained Dentures are the most affordable implant treatment choice compared to Full Mouth Fixed Dental Implant-Supported Dentures and Dental Implant Fixed Bridge solutions.

 
Is a Snap On Dental Implant Denture the Same as All-On-4 OR All-On-X?

When it comes to securely replacing all of the teeth in a single arch, patients have choices ranging from an Snap-On Dental Implant Dentures to All-On-4 or All-On-X dentures.

“Snap On Dental Implant  Denture” is a term that indicates a removable denture that is made to snap into place onto multiple dental implants, improving the denture’s security and stability and enhancing the patient’s ability to chew (see below).

All-On-4 and All-On-X dentures are a streamlined, hybrid appliance that’s shaped like a “U” to follow the contour of your arch of teeth. It’s also permanently affixed into place on top of the supporting dental implants. Only a dentist can remove All-On-4 and All-On-X dental implant dentures. With an overdenture or “Snap On Dental Implant Denture," the appliance may still cover the roof of your mouth, depending on the number of dental implants installed. Snap On Dental Implant  Dentures can be taken in and out by the person wearing it.

All-On-4 and All-On-X dentures are a special type of implant dentures where the final restoration is actually a full mouth fixed dental implant appliance that replaces all of the teeth in a single arch. It is secured to four or more dental implants with screws, making the bridge non-removable by the patient. This type of dental implant restoration provides the most comfort to the patient and is the closest thing to having all of your natural teeth once again (see below).

Are Snap On Dental Implant Dentures Removable?

Yes. The convenience of a Snap-On Dental Implant Denture is that you can still easily take it in and out of your mouth to clean it each day. Some people are completely happy having a removable appliance, but they want an added layer of support to keep it locked in place during their daytime activities. Dr. Bramanti will recommend removing your Snap On overdenture for cleaning at night while you sleep to permit the mouth tissues to rest. 

Do I Need Snap On Dental Implant Dentures?

The traditional options for replacing teeth such as complete dentures or removable partial dentures are below the standard of care and can now be restored with dental implants as the anchors.

Do Snap On Dental Implant Dentures Help With Bone Preservation?

An advantage of dental implants is that of bone preservation. Dental implants are used to replace the roots of the missing teeth. Without roots, the jawbone naturally resorbs (shrinks) as you age. This is why a denture becomes loose and needs to be relined every couple of years and periodically remade. Eventually, there may be so much bone shrinkage that the denture may become impossible to be refitted for retention or stability. Wherever dental implants are placed in the jaw, the jawbone will not resorb in that location. Dental implants not only maintain the height of bone but also help to preserve facial contours, which otherwise change with the loss of bone structure.

Can I Eat With Snap On Dental Implant Dentures?

Chewing efficiency with upper and lower full dentures is at best 20% of your natural teeth. Thousands of patients under the care of Dr. Bramanti who chose to have their dentures supported by dental implants and Snap On Dental Implant Dentures, are now able to eat and chew foods more easily and more efficiently. You will also have a feeling of security because you know the dentures will stay in place while attached to dental implants, which adds to your feeling of self-confidence.

Do Snap On Dental Implant Dentures Feel Like Normal Dentures?

Yes and no. Yes in that the overall shape, appearance, and feel of your Snap On Dental Implant Denture does almost mirror that of a traditional denture. But when you wear your Snap On Dental Implant Retained Denture, you’ll notice a huge difference in how it fits against your mouth. There won’t be the same suction or rubbing and slipping that you might be used to with a traditional “plate.” This Snap On Dental Implant Denture is snapped into a solid, fixed, stable position, secure in the bite, never needing glue, pleasing in the smile bringing to you a much higher confidence and satisfaction in your new teeth.

Can I Convert My Current Denture into a Snap On Dental Implant Denture? 

If you have a fairly new denture plate that fits your mouth well but needs added stability — due to something like a shallow bone ridge or bone loss — it may be possible to retrofit your denture into a Snap On Dental Implant Denture. Converting ordinary dentures into Snap On Dental Implant Dentures must be considered on a case-by-case basis, depending on the condition of your existing denture.

What are the Advantages of a Snap On Dental Implant Denture? 

With a Snap On Dental Implant Denture, you get to enjoy the advantages of dental implants, even if you’re not a traditional dental implant candidate. For instance, if you’ve lost a lot of bone, a Snap On Dental Implant Denture is probably still an option. Then there’s the advantage of affordability, as Snap On Dental Implant Dentures are just a tier above the price of traditional dentures.

Do I Need to Use Denture Adhesive or Paste with a Snap On Dental Implant Denture?

No. Denture adhesives and pastes are only meant to act as a sticky seal between loose and removable dentures and your sticky gums to keep them in place throughout the day. Since your Snap On Dental Implant Denture snaps into place, there’s no need for any extra “glue” or “protection” to keep it secure. The dental implants themselves are the anchors with more than enough support.

How do I Keep My Snap On Dental Implant Denture Clean?

You will want to clean your Snap On Dental Implant Denture the same way you would a traditional denture. Soak it in an effervescent cleansing solution once a day to loosen any residue, then use a soft toothbrush or denture brush to clean away the buildup. Rinse your Snap On Dental Implant Denture clean. Never use hot water, harsh chemicals, or abrasives such as baking soda. 

Do I Qualify for a Snap On Dental Implant Denture? 

The majority of our patients with missing teeth will qualify for a Snap On Dental Implant Dentures. Since the supporting dental implants can be placed wherever the best bone support is, you have more flexibility for meeting the requirements of a dental implant overdenture or Snap On design. Especially if we want to incorporate an alternative treatment like fixed implant-supported dentures or bridges. Dr. Bramanti will guide you to the best dental implant denture solution that fits your needs and desires combined with affordability for your budget. Call Dr. Bramanti today at 559-438-7800 to arrange a personalized consultation to explore treatment possibilities that will improve your quality of life.

How Long Does a Snap On Dental Implant Denture Last? 

Most Snap On Dental Implant Dentures can last over 10 years if they are well maintained. The snaps on the dentures tend to wear out faster if you are removing your Snap On overdentures multiple times per day, so they may need to be replaced more often if you plan on taking your dentures out frequently. Periodic relines of the denture base are also recommended.

Most dental implants — assuming they are well cared for — can last for the rest of your life. While a removable Snap On Dental Implant Denture may gradually wear out and need to be updated, it will last longer than a traditional denture since it has dental implants to keep it in place throughout the day. That means fewer adjustments, fewer relines, fewer sores and fewer problems.

 How Much Do Snap On Dental Implant Dentures Cost?

A Snap On Dental Implant Denture is an entry level most affordable solution. Each denture is different based on how many teeth it needs, the size of the denture, and the type of implant it is getting. Because of this, it is important to consult with Dr. Bramanti to figure out what your total costs will be.  Generally a new Snap On Dental Implant Denture can cost between $2,000-$3,000 and then dental implants cost around $1,800-$2,200 each. Dr. Bramanti is committed to helping you find an implant solution that is affordable and fits within your budget and is aligned with your life plan.

What is the Process of Getting a Snap On Dental Implant Denture Like?

Depending on whether you already have dentures or you have teeth that need to be removed, any existing teeth will first need to be gently taken out. From there, a specific number of implants will be placed at the desired locations. Your new Snap On Dental Implant Denture will be fitted with corresponding locators or “snaps” which will attach to the matching dental implants. You will then enjoy speaking, smiling, laughing and chewing all your favorite foods again!
