Replace Your Missing Teeth with Snap on Dentures
If you have lost most or all of your teeth, you are not alone. One-sixth of adults over 65 have complete tooth loss. This can be very distressing. However, people over 65 are not the only population who may experience tooth loss.
Poor dental care can result in tooth loss as can smoking. These both cause damage to your teeth and gums, resulting in loose teeth that are susceptible to falling out. Pregnancy can also cause gum issues that result in tooth loss.
Having snap on dentures can replace these missing teeth to give you a smile that allows you to eat, talk, and smile like normal. Please keep reading to learn more about the process.
Process of Getting Snap on Dentures
When we are determining if you are a good candidate for mini dental implants, we start with a thorough examination of your mouth. We need to get imaging to get a good look at your jawbone structure. Once we have made the determination that you are suited for this treatment, we can begin.
You start with several mini implants placed strategically on the jaw. Unlike traditional dental implants, you do not have to go through a long healing process before we place the denture piece onto your implants.
The other difference between dental implants and mini dental implants is that, with denture pieces, you can take them on and off for cleanings. They provide the benefits of the look and ease of dentures with the security of implants. That is what makes them such a popular option for people with complete tooth loss.
