Who Is A Good Candidate For Snap-on Dentures?
Any patient considering going into dentures for the first time should highly consider their options when it comes to dentures and implants. Why? It allows for the implants to be placed at the same time as the extractions, saving you time, money, and a second surgery!
If you have an existing lower denture and are wanting more out of social events, life, etc. This can help you out by anchoring your lower denture to two implants so it does not slip and slide around. If you have a partial, adding one or two implants can also improve the fit and function.
What Is the Process for Snap-on Dentures?
We start the process with a consultation and a 3-D CT scan. From there, we will consider your medical history and then begin the denture-making process. We will make your dentures first – and deliver healing dentures at surgery. These will be worn for four months.
After healing, we will then make you a new metal reinforced snap-on denture with snaps that engage the implants well. Please note not every patient is the same; on occasion, we will go right into surgery if a patient has a decent set of dentures and then make their finals once they have healed.
Why Choose Texas Implant and Dental Center in Fort Worth?
Having our own In House Lab allows us to manage the outcomes along the way. Dr. Damon and Dr. Dupree are able to provide you with a better prosthesis than the traditional outside dental lab.
We provide metal frameworks in all of our implant dentures or snap-on Dentures. This metal framework reinforces your snap-on denture. We repair many cases every year of other dentists’ patients who have an all acrylic snap-on denture that breaks. The metal is needed and provides a strong prosthesis.
Also, we do not convert an existing healing denture into a snap-on denture. This is even worse of an idea because healing dentures go through many rounds of soft liners, adjustments, and overall wear and tear. Converting this to a final will surely lead to failure soon.
