When asked to choose between two different outcomes, the right answer is sometimes clear. But other times, you simply can’t select and want the best of both worlds. Snap-in dentures give you just that—the stability and functionality of implant dentures with the removability and convenience of traditional dentures. This combination is made possible thanks to mini dental implants. They allow the prosthetic to attach to your jaw while letting you remove it whenever you like. You’ll experience a quality-of-life upgrade thanks to the increased power and sturdiness of teeth supported by mini implants.

The Problems With Traditional Dentures

Snap-In Dentures in Scottsdale, AZ | Mini Implants | StabilizationIf you’ve ever worn an older pair of traditional dentures, you’ve probably experienced the phenomenon of loose or floating dentures. This occurs when your dentures no longer fit properly and begin to move around inside your mouth. This poor fit is problematic for a few reasons. First, loose dentures make simple activities like eating, speaking, and laughing an adventure, as you never know when your teeth will move unexpectedly. Second, they cause gum irritation and soreness as the acrylic base presses unevenly on your gums.

Finally, conventional dentures do nothing to halt the deterioration of your jawbone that comes when your tooth roots are gone. This loss of bone will contribute to your dentures further losing their fit, accelerating the advancement of these downsides in a snowball effect.

Mini Dental Implants Provide Stability

Luckily, modern dentistry has a solution to this problem through mini dental implants. An implant dentist like Dr. Seerat Mann or Dr. Todd Shatkin can place these titanium screws directly into your jawbone to provide a stable base to attach various tooth restorations. Whether it’s a dental crown, an implant-supported bridge, or a complete set of implant dentures, mini implants ensure your new teeth are solid and secure. The implant base also provides your teeth with increased comfort and functionality. Not only will your dentures look more like natural teeth, but they’ll act like it, too. Your increased biting and chewing power will make eating difficult foods possible once again.

But what if you still want to remove your teeth at night or just want to stabilize your existing pair of dentures? We can do that, too, through the use of snap-in dentures.

What Are Snap-In Dentures?

Snap-in dentures, also called implant-retained overdentures, “snap” onto 4-8 mini implants for support. You can then remove them at home for cleaning and comfort. They’re like a hybrid between conventional dentures and more permanent implant dentures. They provide the extra stability of implants while maintaining the convenience and removability of your old dentures. We can create a denture from scratch for this purpose, but in certain cases, we can modify your existing denture to become a snap-in denture. To do this, we remove much of the pink palate section, which means we can enhance your ability to taste food.

The Benefits of Snap-In Dentures With Mini Implants

In addition to increased stability and functionality, snap-in dentures using mini implants offer improvements in both oral health and quality of life:

  • Better functionality: More stable teeth can handle more force, so foods that were once challenging or impossible are now accessible again.
  • Increased confidence: Social situations become much less stressful without worrying about your denture slipping out or what you look and sound like with missing teeth.
  • Natural aesthetics: Implant dentures look and work more like real teeth. The bulky acrylic base of traditional dentures is gone or reduced, and the tighter connection implants provide gives the teeth a more natural look.
  • Healthy jawbone: The implants act like missing tooth roots and stimulate the jawbone. This prevents any deterioration of bone or tissue and keeps your facial structure intact.
  • More affordable: We can place mini dental implants with a simple, minimally invasive procedure, and the healing process is much quicker than traditional implants. A shorter timeline means fewer appointments and no extra procedures like bone grafts, which translates into savings.
