Snap-in Dentures

Snap in Denture Benefits

  • Improved chewing ability compared to traditional dentures.
  • Reduces denture movement
  • Less soreness and gum irritation
  • Eliminate the cost and inconvenience of denture adhesives.
  • Reduced roof of mouth coverage for better taste and less gagging
  • Decreased bone loss with dental implants

Why Snap in Dentures?

Snap in Dentures offer several benefits compared to traditional dentures. Traditional dentures can slip and move, cause bone loss over time, reduce taste, reduce chewing ability, and require messy adhesives. Snap in Dentures offer a cost effective solution to eliminate these problems.

What is the Process for Snap In Dentures?

Free Consultation

As soon as you arrive, you’ll be greeted by our warm and compassionate team. Our doctors will spend time getting to know you, your concerns, expectations, goals, and desires. Dr. Kimmel or Dr. Rushing will complete an oral examination, review your 3D scans with you and answer any questions you have. You will leave your consultation with a customized treatment plan and exact costs.

Smile Design

Your doctor will take records and begin designing your beautiful new smile so that it not only looks great but functions well. All of this is completed with our in-house dental laboratory so that your teeth never have to leave our office.

First Procedure

Your procedure will be completed under sedation for maximum comfort. Any remaining teeth are removed and dental implants are placed.  The dental implants heal under the gum for 6 months. During this time, temporary dentures will be worn so that you don’t have to go without teeth.

Quality Comfort Package

Your gums and jawbone will undergo changes over the next 6 months. To account for these changes, a soft material is placed inside of the denture to provide a more snug and comfortable fit. This will be replaced periodically throughout the healing process.

Second Procedure

After 6 months of healing, your doctor will expose the implants through a second surgical procedure. The gums are allowed to heal before the final Snap In Dentures are made.

Your doctor will begin the process of customizing your final Snap In Dentures to ensure the best fit, function, and appearance for the smile you’ve always dreamed of!

Frequently Asked Questions

What are Snap in Dentures?

Snap in Dentures use dental implants to provide a more stable and comfortable fit compared to traditional dentures. Snap in Dentures are removable but are much more stable than traditional dentures and don’t require messy denture adhesive or glue.

Over time, wearing traditional dentures can lead to the loss of natural jawbone. The dental implants used in Snap in Dentures help stimulate and retain your natural jawbone. With Snap in Dentures you will be much more confident in speaking, smiling, and eating compared to traditional dentures.

Other names commonly used for Snap In Dentures include: Implant Overdentures, Dental Implant Dentures, and Semi Permanent Teeth.

Is it really possible to have teeth extracted, dental implants placed, and immediate dentures delivered in one day?

In most cases, yes. Most of our patients have one or both arches of teeth removed, dental implants placed, and immediate dentures placed all in the same day. The ability to do this shortens treatment time and the amount of surgical procedures needed.

How long does the Snap in Denture process take from start to finish?

After any remaining teeth are removed, dental implants are placed into the jawbone, and immediate healing dentures are placed so that you don’t have to go without teeth. Over the next 6 months, your dental implants will heal and integrate into the jawbone under the gums.

During this time you will receive a series of denture soft liners to keep your dentures as comfortable and snug as possible.  After the healing process is complete, your doctor will place the attachments on your implants and make your final Snap in Denture.

I’ve been wearing dentures for years, can I still get Snap In Dentures and dental implants?

Yes! Many patients who have been wearing dentures for years have been  successfully treated with Snap In Dentures. At your free consultation, we will assess your jawbones with state of the art 3D Xray technology to determine if you are a candidate and discuss your treatment options.

How many dental implants do I need for upper Snap in Dentures?

For the upper jaw, a minimum of 4 dental implants have to be placed. The palate (roof of the mouth) part of the denture can be significantly reduced or removed after attachment to the dental implants. This improves the ability to taste foods, speak, and reduce gagging.

How many implants do I need for lower Snap In Dentures?

For the lower jaw, a minimum of 2 dental implants have to be placed.  4 dental implants provide even more stability and hold to a lower denture. There is a significant increase of lower denture satisfaction with dental implants.

Are the dental implants attached to the denture the same day they are placed for Snap in Dentures?

Dental implants placed for Snap in Dentures need to heal for 4-6 months before they can be attached to the denture. During this time, the dental implants are healing under the gums so that a healing denture can be worn without disturbing the healing process.  If a more immediate dental implant solution is needed, All-on-4® Teeth in a Day should be considered.

Are Snap in Dentures removable?

Yes. Although Snap in Dentures are removable, they are more secure than traditional dentures. The ability to remove them makes it very easy and convenient to clean your dentures, implants, and gums.

Can Snap in Dentures still have some movement?

The dental implants significantly reduce movement of the dentures but it is possible to still have slight movement of the dentures. This varies person to person and the shape of the mouth. Generally, the more dental implants, the more stable the dentures are.

Can I taste my foods better with Snap in Dentures?

Yes! Most patients with 4 implants on the upper arch are able to remove or significantly reduce the palate (roof of the mouth) portion of the denture. This allows you to taste foods much better compared to traditional dentures and gives you a more natural experience. For patients who have a severe gag reflex, removing the palate will help provide immediate relief.

Do Snap in Dentures look real?

Yes, every denture we make is custom made to each patient’s mouth and face. Dr. Kimmel and Dr. Rushing will take records of your mouth and work hand in hand with our in house dental lab and Dental Lab Technician to ensure you get the best results and smile you have always dreamed of.

Do you use mini dental implants for Snap In Dentures?

No, we use full size dental implants which have more longevity and higher success rates compared to mini dental implants.

Can I be put to sleep for the Snap in Denture procedure?

The majority of our patients are comfortably treated with oral sedation. If desired, an anesthesiologist can be brought in for the procedure for an additional fee.

Do you use my immediate healing denture as the final denture?

No. Unlike some other dental offices, we make a new final denture when the dental implants are ready to be attached. This gives you a brand new, best fitted, and long lasting denture made just for your mouth and dental implants. If any changes are desired, they can be made at this time.

How much do Snap in Dentures cost?

We have transparent, package pricing for Snap in Dentures which includes all dental implants, abutments, snaps, and a denture for one low price. If dental extractions are needed, a custom treatment plan will be made at your free consultation. Click here to see our Snap in Denture prices.

Will my dental insurance help cover my Snap in Denture procedure?

Dental insurances may cover a portion for the Snap In Denture procedure. Our insurance specialists can help maximize your insurance benefits and help you navigate your personal plan at the free consultation. Health Savings Accounts (HSA) and Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) can also help you pay for your treatment. We also offer third party finance options and payment plans.

Will there be pain after the Snap in Dentures procedure?

While some soreness can be expected after any dental procedure, most of our patients report minor discomfort after the procedure. Your doctor will prescribe you medications based on your medical history, to help alleviate swelling and discomfort.

How long will I need to be off of work after the Snap in Dentures procedure?

Time off varies from person to person. Some patients return to work the very next day while others need a week off. Since some swelling and discomfort is expected as well as getting used to your new teeth, the longer you can take off the better.

Will I know how to speak with Snap in Dentures immediately?

Because the dentures are not attached to the dental implants the day they are placed, it can take time to get used to something new in your mouth. This is particularly true for the first few days as your body is still healing. Getting used to your new teeth may require some practice and patience. The more you practice, the faster you'll get the hang of it.

Practicing speaking or reading out loud is the most effective way to adjust to your new teeth. Start slow and work your way up to normal conversation speed. After attaching the dental implants to the final denture, the denture is significantly more secure, making speech much easier.

What if I want to make changes to the way my Snap in Dentures look?

We make every effort to make sure you are happy with the way your healing dentures look. If you would like to make changes, we are happy to fully customize the way your final Snap in Dentures look.

Can I get food stuck under my Snap in Dentures?

While it is possible to get a small amount of food under any denture, Snap in Dentures greatly reduced this by keeping the denture from moving while eating.  A benefit of Snap in Dentures is that they can be removed, cleaned, and snapped back in.

What is a soft liner?

A soft liner is a custom fitted cushion that is molded to your gums and fills the “gum” side of an immediate denture.  This fills any spaces that have developed between the denture and the gums from healing while also providing comfort to the gums. The first soft liner is placed 2 weeks after surgery so that initial healing can take place and any sutures can dissolve. The soft liner is changed every 2 months until healing is complete and the dental implants are ready to be attached to the dentures.

How do I take care of my Snap in Dentures?

Snap in Dentures are very easy to take care of because they can be removed.  A soft bristle toothbrush and non abrasive cleaner can be used to clean the Snap in Dentures.  With the denture out, it is easy to brush the dental implants with a soft bristle toothbrush and non abrasive toothpaste.

How often do I need to replace the denture snaps (inserts)?

With repeated use and snapping in and out of the dentures, the strength of the snaps (the replaceable part in the denture) will wear out over time. This will result in a weaker snap and perceived looseness of the denture. It is recommended having them replaced every 6 months to a year. This process is very simple, affordable, and can be completed in a single short visit. CAUTION: Please do not bite your dentures into place, as this will cause your inserts and snap in to wear much faster. Be sure to place and snap your Dentures in with your hands.

Can Snap in Denture implants fail?

Dental implants have a very high success rate of about 98%. If a dental implant fails to integrate into the jawbone, it usually happens during the 6 month healing phase.  If a dental implant fails to integrate, we will replace it at no cost up to one year after attachment.  Smoking, uncontrolled diabetes, and certain medications can decrease dental implant success rates.

Do I still need regular dental visits after having Snap in Dentures?

Yes! Cleanings, just like with natural teeth, are needed periodically to ensure your implants remain healthy. While dental implants do not get cavities, they can still get gum disease which can lead to bone loss around dental implants. Even though the dental implants stimulate the bone to prevent bone loss, your mouth can still change slowly over time. This is why your dentures will need to be relined periodically to ensure optimal fit and function and prevent unnecessary stress to your implants.The denture snaps will need to be changed every 6 months to a year on average. This process is very simple, affordable, and can be completed in a single short visit.

Are the dentists treating me specialists?

Dr. Christopher Kimmel DDS, MAAIP, FICOI and Dr. Tyler Rushing DMD, MAAIP, FICOI are general dentists that have dedicated their training and practice to dental implants and dental implant prosthetics. Both doctors are Masters in the American Academy Implant Prosthodontics and Fellows in the International Congress of Oral Implantology. Dr. Kimmel and Dr. Rushing have a combined 10 years of experience and have placed 1000’s of dental implants. Dental implant dentistry is their passion and patients love being able to have all their dental work completed, from start to finish, all under one roof.

What makes Quality Denture and Implant Center different from corporate dental offices that offer the same procedure?

At Quality Denture and Implant Center, you can take comfort in knowing your doctors are highly trained, truly care about your health, and getting you the BEST results possible. Unlike the big corporate offices, you’re not treated like a number. Our caring team is with you every step of the way and treats you like family.

At Quality Denture and Implant Center, we take pride in being privately owned and being patient centered, rather than monthly quotas and pleasing shareholders. Our goal is to serve the community and provide the highest Quality of care at an affordable price.

What makes Quality Denture and Implant Center different from other dental offices that offer a wide range of services?

Quality Denture and Implant Center focuses almost exclusively on dental implants and dental implant prosthetics. Our on-site dental laboratory and Dental Laboratory Technician allow us to keep the quality of our products high, while reducing costs. We pass these savings onto our patients allowing us to provide high quality, affordable dental implant treatment.

Many dental offices that focus on a wide range of services will refer you to see multiple doctors, making pricing confusing. This can lead to significantly increased treatment times (sometimes years) and costs that are 50-75% more for the same services.
