Lost teeth don’t have to bring you down, and dentures don’t have to look and feel clunky. This is the message Dr. Elkhechen and his team express to our Loxahatchee neighbors who are missing some or even all of their teeth. As a solution, we offer "snap-in" dentures that are implant-supported, meaning they attach directly to your mouth.
With this extra-sturdy foundation, our Groves Dental Care experts can ensure your denture is light, comfortable, and produced in record time. Sometimes called "teeth-in-a-day," this tooth replacement option starts with precise, digital planning and then uses modern fabrication methods to quickly return a finished denture. Here’s how it works.
The Snap-In Denture Procedure
The process for getting dentures that snap on starts with dental implant placement. These small, titanium posts that we surgically place into your jaw bones. Our implant dentist chooses the proper number of implants and implants them in one appointment. This method accelerates the process because all implants heal during the same period.
Our team will monitor your recovery, and when ready, we will supply the connectors and your denture appliance. We can deliver a snap-on partial denture for some teeth or a complete denture if you need to replace all your teeth. Our goal is to supply the option that best fits your needs.
How Long Can You Leave Snap-In Dentures In?
One benefit of snap-in dentures is how easily you can take them in and out without compromising their fit, comfort, or security. One main reason to remove your denture is to clean not only the appliance but your mouth and gums as well.
No matter how snugly it fits, small food debris can become lodged between your mouth and your denture, causing problems like irritation, gum infection, and even bad breath. Therefore, we recommend you remove your denture daily, soaking it in the recommended denture solution. At this time, you should also gently brush your mouth, tongue, and gums to clear away debris and plaque.
