Snap on Dentures
Snap-on dentures are secured to the jaw using implant snaps instead of glue or adhesive to keep the dentures in place. The implant snaps are anchored in the jaw bone.
Snap-On dentures improve a person’s chewing ability, allowing the wearer to eat a wider variety of healthy foods such as corn and apples. This type of implant stops bone loss that occurs when wearing regular dentures, they are more comfortable than traditional dentures and provide easier speaking and swallowing. Palate-less Snap-On dentures use four or more implants to keep the dentures secure and stable so that the wearer avoids embarrassing slipping of the dentures.

Stay on place
Stability and comfort
The benefits to snap-on implant dentures are:
Sit gently over your gums
Confidence to smile wide again
No issue with speaking, laughing, coughing, or eating
No denture adhesive to keep the dentures from slipping out
They are palate-less, meaning they are not pushed up on the palate of your mouth, only snapped and hooked over the head of the implant
A strong bite
Ability to remove them if necessary
Ability to chew hard foods, such as carrots, apples, nuts, etc.
Are Snap-On Dentures Right for You?
Although snap-on dentures provide many attractive benefits, they are not right for every patient. For example, if you have an autoimmune disorder such as diabetes, or if you have experienced an advanced degree of jaw atrophy due to a prolonged absence of tooth roots, you may be better suited to traditional dentures. In this case, our dentists can provide a precisely fitted and natural-looking denture. They can also provide the ongoing care necessary to maintain comfort and functionality. In some cases, candidacy for snap-on dentures can be restored through a bone grafting procedure. Our dentists will conduct a detailed assessment of your oral health and overall health to determine your options.
Because the denture is removable, you can snap it on and off whenever you want. The “snap” or “clip” happens when you press them against the head of your mini implants.
