Understanding Snap-In Dentures: Enhanced Dental Stability

When compared to traditional dentures, snap-ins provide greater stability and comfort, and they also help wearers feel like they possess natural teeth again. Despite these benefits, there are other factors to consider before choosing this option, including cost and maintenance.

The snap-ins themselves are made primarily from acrylic (not porcelain) and come close to replicating the resilience and appearance of natural teeth. They are also designed to be as stable as possible and help prevent shifting, rubbing, or jostling while eating or speaking.

In order forĀ Snap-in Dentures to be effective, they need to be anchored to the jawbone via dental implants. The implant system used is largely a matter of choice, but all systems require a certain amount of time to heal and fuse to the bone before snap-ins can be added. As a result, this procedure is typically more expensive than other options for replacing missing teeth.

It is also important to note that the snap-ins will eventually need to be replaced, although this may vary by patient. Taking care of your snap-ins on a daily basis should help extend their lifespan, though, and this can be made easier by using a non-abrasive cleaner or immersing them in water when not in use.

The main benefit of this form of tooth replacement is that it improves the ability to eat the foods you want without having to worry about your teeth slipping. Moreover, users have reported that they feel more confident when interacting with other people thanks to the snap-ins’ natural look.

However, if you are missing a large number of teeth, the snap-ins will not provide the same level of stability or functionality as implant-supported fixed teeth, which are more expensive but also do a better job of preventing jawbone loss. Our dentist will evaluate your oral health and lifestyle to determine if you are a good candidate for this type of tooth replacement.
