WHAT IS THE SNAP-ON DENTURES PROCEDURE?
Stabilized overdentures look like traditional, removable dentures. However, there are 2-4 locators on the under-side of your “plate,” which attach on top of implant abutments. Snap on dentures at Avenue Dental Care in Washington essentially clip into place. There’s no rocking, shifting, or rubbing, because your implants keep the appliance secure.
When you wear a snap on denture, you’ll need to remove your appliance at night when you go to sleep. The routine care and maintenance is exactly like what you would expect with a traditional denture. Soak it in a cleansing solution overnight, brush it clean the next morning, and wipe your mouth with a washcloth before putting it back in.
Overdentures are great for patients who want to stabilize their existing denture may not be a candidate for the All-On-4 Dental Implants treatment, or have extensive bone loss in their jaws. Depending on your oral anatomy, our implant dentists at Avenue Dental Care in Washington can strategically place anywhere from 2-4 implants for stabilization. A new denture is created to fit on top of them, or your current denture is modified/retrofitted so that it snaps in place.
