What Are Snap-In Dentures?

Squiggly Line

Snap-in dentures are a type of denture that is supported by implants. Implants are titanium posts that are surgically placed into your jawbone to provide support for your denture. Snap-in dentures have snaps that attach to the implants, providing more stability and preventing the denture from moving around in your mouth.

Periodontal Dental Services

If left untreated, gingivitis can progress into its second, more aggressive stage. This stage is called periodontitis. Periodontitis causes receding gums and permanent damage to the tissues that support your teeth. Severe periodontitis can also result in tooth loss. Advanced gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss in adult patients.

If you’re concerned about your gums, call your trusted Rock Hill dentists today.

The Benefits of Snap-In Dentures

Squiggly Line

There are many benefits to choosing snap-in dentures over traditional dentures. Snap-in dentures:

  • Are more stable than traditional dentures and will not slip or move around in your mouth. Snap-in dentures are also less prone to move about or come loose in your mouth due to the way they are fitted.
  • Provide more chewing power than traditional dentures. This is due to the increased stability and support that snap-in dentures have.
  • They are more comfortable than traditional dentures as they do not pressure your gums.
  • Fit better than traditional dentures as they are custom made to fit your mouth and are not loose like traditional dentures.
  • They are easier to keep clean as they do not have the same food traps as traditional dentures.

If you are considering getting dentures, snap-in dentures are an excellent option. Talk to your dentist at River District Smiles about whether or not snap-in dentures are right for you.

Am I A Good Candidate For Dental Implants?

The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for snap-in dentures is through a dentist consultation. Dentists examine your mouth and jaw to see if you have enough bone density to support dental implants. They also need to check if your gums are healthy enough to undergo surgery. If you do not have enough bone density or healthy gums, you may not be a good candidate for snap-in dentures.

The best candidates for snap-in dentures are people who:

  • Have good oral health overall
  • Have enough bone density in the jaw for support
  • Do not have active gum disease
  • Are committed to maintaining good oral hygiene

If you think you need a snap-in denture, we recommend you talk to a dentist for best recommendations.

What Is The Cost Of Snap-In Dentures?

Squiggly Line

The cost of snap-in dentures can vary quite a bit. The cost of these dentures can range from a few thousand dollars to upwards of ten thousand dollars. This wide range in prices is because the cost of snap-in dentures depends on a few different factors.

  • Type of dental implants. Titanium or zirconia are used for dental implants, and each style has its benefits and drawbacks. Titanium implants are typically more expensive than zirconia implants but are also more durable. Zirconia implants, on the other hand, are less costly, but they are not as durable as titanium implants. The dental implant used will ultimately be up to you and your dentist.
  • The number of dental implants. The more dental implants are used, the higher the price will be. However, using more dental implants will also provide extra support for your dentures, resulting in a better fit and fewer problems.
  • Need bone graft. You will need a bone graft if you do not have enough bone in your jaw for dental implants. Bone grafts can add several thousand dollars to the overall cost of your Snap-In Dentures.

How Long Do Snap-In Dentures Last?

The average lifespan of a snap-in denture is about 5 to 7 years. However, with proper care and maintenance, they can last even longer. This includes brushing your teeth at least twice daily, flossing regularly, and using an antibacterial mouthwash.

You should also schedule regular checkups and cleanings. These appointments will allow your dentist to catch any problems early on and prevent further damage to your denture. Finally, make sure to handle your denture with care. Avoid dropping it or putting too much pressure on it while cleaning it.

How often should the snaps be changed?

The nylon snaps in the implant housing wear out over time, and we recommend changing them at least once a year. This may differ depending on how often you remove your denture, what type of foods you eat, and if you wear your denture overnight.

What maintenance is required for my snap-in denture?

For the long-term health of your dental implants, we recommend cleaning them once a year. Your dentist or oral surgeon can do this. In addition, it is essential to brush and floss your teeth and denture daily, and seeing your dentist regularly for checkups and cleanings is necessary.

Following these simple steps can help ensure that your dental implants last for many years.

Can I wear my denture to bed?

Taking the denture out when sleeping is highly recommended. After a long day of wearing a prosthesis, allowing the gums to breathe and relax is critical. If the denture is a “snap-in,” if the patient grinds their teeth at night, there is extra strain on the implant, which might cause problems.

In short, it is best to remove the denture at night. Talk to your dentist or oral surgeon if you have any questions or concerns about wearing your denture.
