Many people who wear a full set of dentures feel disappointed in the long-term stability the traditional dentures offer. It’s reported that individuals experience discomfort with wearing denture on the roof of the mouth because of varied kind of problems associated with it. Some find it difficult to chew and swallow food and others complain of having a gagging sensation and the difficulty in communicating with other people with a full palate of dentures.
Dentures are used as a standard teeth replacement option for missing teeth, but they come with several shortcomings. Improperly fitted dentures can damage adjacent teeth and even well-adjusted ones can become loose or fall out when the underlying bone and soft tissues shrink over time. Fortunately, these shortcomings can be overcome with a modern innovation called snap-on dentures.
If you struggle with your ill-fitted dentures and suffer discomfort, irritation and pain, then Affordable Dentist in Crowley offers a unique middle-ground solution with Snap-on Dentures.
What Are Snap-on Dentures?
While traditional dentures rely completely on either natural suction of your gums or a combination of suction and an adhesive, snap-on dentures directly secure over dental implant posts into the jawbone tissue. They are prosthetic teeth made from acrylic base that are attached to a post supported by dental implants.
With snap-on dentures you’ll not be required to have implants in every socket of your arch, but will only need two to four titanium posts in areas, depending on your oral structure. The prosthesis is created to stimulate gums and lifelike artificial tooth and then snapped onto the posts, giving your new teeth a natural look, and allowing you to enjoy a wonderful smile.
