Snap-In Dentures in My Area
Snap-in implant-supported dentures attach to previously placed dental implants to create a bite that is stronger, more stable, and more comfortable. Snap-in dentures are a desirable and excellent choice if you are looking for an alternative to conventional dentures, which can slide around, provide a less stable and weaker bite, and be more uncomfortable.
Dr. Nima Afzalian and our team here at My Dental and Implants have been hearing great things from our patients who have chosen this tooth replacement option. Dr. Afzalian is a highly experienced implant dentist providing service to patients in the Glendale, Arizona, area and would love to be given the opportunity to help you regain a smile you can have confidence in with snap-in dentures.
Snap-In Implant Supported Dentures
With as few as a couple of strategically placed dental implants, we can attach an entire upper or lower denture, with the dental implants acting as anchors to provide added stability and strength. Dental implants offer an advanced method and, in many cases, a more economical option for securing dentures.
The Benefits of Snap-In Dentures
Patients who have benefitted from snap-in dentures have reported the most significant advantage as their increased stability. The increased stability of this innovative denture option improves your ability to eat and speak.
Other benefits you can expect from snap-in dentures include:
- Increased biting force
- Increased security
- Decreased or outright elimination of denture slippage
- Improved quality of life
- Enhanced self-confidence in your smile
Are You a Good Candidate for Snap-In Dentures?
If you are considering dentures for replacing missing teeth and it is your first time, consider the many denture and implant options available to you. This is important because it will allow your dental implants to be placed during the same appointment as any necessary extractions, saving you the time and money associated with multiple procedures.
If you already have an existing denture but want more out of your social, business, and everyday life, this can be helped by anchoring your denture to some dental implants. Anchoring your dentures in place with dental implants allows for a restoration that will not slip or slide around in your mouth. For those with partial dentures, adding an implant or two can also help improve the function and fit.
The Snap-In Denture Process
You will start by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Afzalian. Once you are considered a good candidate, and your medical history has been taken into account, any necessary scanning and imaging of your mouth will be completed. We will then begin the denture creation process. Your dentures will then be crafted before having your dental implants placed. These healing dentures will be worn after your dental implant surgery as you heal over the next several months.
Once fully healed from your dental implant procedure, a new metal-reinforced snap-in denture will be crafted and snapped into place onto your dental implants. Please understand that each patient we see will have a unique situation that could require personalized differences in treatment.
