Snap in Implant Anchored Dentures

Snap in your new set of teeth!
Snap in teeth use dental implants to anchor the prosthetic teeth in your mouth so they do not fall out. These are a very popular option because they can be easily removed to clean at home. They are also less expensive than the screw in dental implant solutions often called "all on 4", "fixed", "implant supported", or "hybrid".
This option is very popular because allows patients to taste food better since the palate of the upper denture can be removed. This is also great for patients who have a sensitive gag reflex.
Dental implants are small screws that heal in your jawbone for around 3-4 months. During this time patients wear a temporary healing denture. After they heal, the implants are tested to ensure they are tight and will last long, then they are attached to your new set of custom teeth!
