Mini Implants – Denture Stabilization

Snap-In-Dentures Secured With Mini Implants

Snap-In-Dentures are stabilized by using what are referred to as mini dental implants. After the implant is placed, the denture is secured by these mini implants, and they can removed from the implants to be cleaned. There is generally a noticeable difference in patient satisfaction levels over regular ventures through snap ins. Patients report feeling more confident that their teeth will not fall out at important times.

You do have to take Snap-in-Dentures in and out every day like you do dentures. The dental implant provider will place either 2 or 4 implants for your dentures to snap in and out of.

Snap in dentures generally cost less than fixed options we’re about to describe next but there are many reasons why people choose fixed over removable.

First Let’s Explore Dentures

Imagine a world where biting into your favorite food or sharing a hearty laugh becomes an ordeal. This is often the reality for many people living with traditional dentures. These removable replacements for missing teeth, while beneficial, do come with their fair share of restrictions and problems. They rely on suction to stay in place and often cover the entire palate, which can lead to a diminished sense of taste. How much pleasure can one derive from a meal when it’s robbed of its full flavor?

Moreover, the fear of dentures becoming loose while eating or laughing can be a constant source of anxiety. It’s like living with a ticking time bomb in your mouth – you never know when it might go off, leading to embarrassment or discomfort.

But what if there was an upgrade? A solution that offers more stability than traditional dentures? That’s where Snap-in-Dentures enter the picture.

Snap-In Dentures Also Known As Denture Stabilization

Snap-in-Dentures are a step above regular dentures. They ‘snap’ onto mini dental implants, providing a secure fit and greater confidence. No more worrying about your dentures slipping out unexpectedly. They offer a level of stability that regular dentures simply cannot match. Plus, they’re removable for cleaning, ensuring your oral hygiene isn’t compromised.

However, it’s important to remember that while snap-in dentures are an improvement, they are not a perfect solution. They come with their own set of issues. Even though they offer greater stability, some patients have reported problems like gum rubbing and slight movement. Over four years, these dentures have twice the likelihood of issues compared to a fixed option. These may seem like minor inconveniences, but they can still cause discomfort and make some people feel insecure.

So, while Snap-in-Dentures with mini implants are certainly an upgrade from traditional dentures, they’re not without challenges. But don’t let this deter you. The key is to understand your options and discuss them with Dr. Walsh who specialize in full mouth reconstruction. You deserve a solution that lets you enjoy life’s simple pleasures without worry or discomfort. And remember, your oral health is an investment, not an expense.
