What is a snap-on denture?

A snap-on denture, sometimes referred to as an overdenture, is a removable dental appliance that "snaps" onto dental implants for a secure and comfortable fit. In a snap: it's easy to see how this denture got its name!

These dentures can improve the function and aesthetics of your smile, especially for those who are missing teeth, making it hard to eat or speak.

Who might benefit from a snap-on denture? Snap-on dentures are ideal for individuals who are missing multiple teeth or require full arch replacement. Candidates with some existing natural teeth but in need of additional support and stability can greatly benefit from snap-on dentures.

Why choose a snap-on denture? Snap-on dentures offer several advantages for patients. They provide better stability compared to traditional dentures, reducing movement and enhancing comfort while eating and speaking. Additionally, snap-on dentures help preserve the jawbone by stimulating the underlying tissue, promoting oral health in the long term.
