Missing teeth can have a huge impact on a person’s self-esteem. When looking at restoration dentistry options, you may run into snap-in dentures. With some preferred qualities, snap-in dentures may be a more suitable option for some patients. At Feliciana Dental, we offer beautiful solutions to missing teeth. Our service areas include St. Francisville, New Roads, West/East Feliciana Parish, and Clinton, Louisiana. We also cater to our neighbors in Wilkinson County, Mississippi.
Snap-In dentures are similar to traditional dentures. They are a set of prosthetic teeth that are made to fit perfectly in your mouth. Where they differ from other dentures is the use of dental implant posts. Implants are inserted into your gums to provide support to the dentures. You’ll be able to snap in your set of new teeth and not have to worry about them moving around as you go through your day. Unlike dental implants or all-on-4 options, snap-in dentures are removable. Patients are able to take them out at the end of the day and clean them properly.
Dealing with denture adhesive on a daily basis can be annoying for some patients. Snap-in dentures eliminate the need for any dental adhesive. Your dentures will be locked into place with the implanted dental posts. You won’t have to worry about dentures falling out mid-conversation or while you’re enjoying a delicious meal. Snap-in denture options also allow for a strong bite force, something that is not usually possible with traditional dentures.
As part of the Feliciana Dental community, we want our patients to be aware of all their options. All of our restorative options are top-tier, but we are here to educate and recommend the best options based on your needs. If you or a family member are in the St. Francisville area, contact us to schedule an appointment. Our Feliciana professionals can’t wait to hear from you.
