Are you tired of sticky denture paste or having a denture that moves around when you speak? Then, Dr. Fawzi Hijazi of San Antonio Smile Pros might suggest snap-on dentures. What are snap-on dentures? Snap-on dentures (also called removable implant-supported dentures or implant overdentures) are removable dentures that fit over dental implants or a bar-supported by dental implants.
Since patients can remove the denture at home, it allows them to clean underneath their dental appliances easily. Then, the patient can snap the dentures back in when needed.
At San Antonio Smile Pros, we offer two styles of snap-on implant dentures:
Dr. Hijazi can help you decide which type of overdenture can restore your smile. During your initial consultation, Dr. Hijazi will evaluate different factors to determine which type of tooth replacement is most suitable for your case. Generally, we ask that snap-on denture patients have excellent oral and overall wellness before starting the procedure.
During surgery, Dr. Hijazi strategically places two dental implants in the front of the mouth for removable overdentures. We will provide a temporary denture to wear on surgery day as the jaws and gums heal around the implants. When your bone has successfully fused with the dental implant, Dr. Hijazi will place the final overdentures.
