If you’re searching for a way to replace your missing teeth, you’re likely exploring all your options. There are so many to choose from including dental implants, All-On-X, CeraSmile®, FOY® Dentures, dental bridges, and Snap-In Dentures. One of our new treatments at Country Club Dentistry in Rancho Mirage is Snap-In Dentures.
If you’re searching for a tooth replacement option, we encourage you to consider Snap-In Dentures for the following reasons.
1. They’re More Secure Than Traditional Dentures
One of the top reasons why you should get Snap-In Dentures versus traditional dentures is because they’re more secure. With traditional dentures, the dentures are held in place using suction and adhesives. However, with Snap-In Dentures, they use any remaining teeth or 2 to 6 dental implants to stay in place. By securing the dentures to dental implants, the dentures have more stability and security than traditional dentures alone.
Dental implants are placed in the jaw and the bone surrounds the implants to hold them in place, just like tooth roots of natural teeth. When you connect the dentures to the implants, they immediately place all the support and pressure onto the jaw, just like natural teeth. This results in no slipping and sliding or worrying that your dentures will fall out during a meal, when you’re laughing, or at the wrong time.
2. They Preserve More Jaw Bone
In addition to staying secure in your mouth, Snap-In Dentures also preserve jaw bone which is something that traditional dentures don’t do. Why is it important to preserve bone? It can help you look younger, prevent your face from drooping, reduce wrinkles, and prevent your face from looking sunken in. If you want to continue looking your age, preserving jaw bone is essential.
3. They’re More Affordable Than Implant Dentures
One of the most appealing benefits of Snap-In Dentures is its affordability. The reason Snap-In Dentures can cost less than implant dentures is that they typically use fewer dental implants than implant dentures. In addition, if you have any remaining teeth, we can use those as anchors too which will decrease the cost even more. If affordability is a concern but you want a more secure tooth replacement option than traditional dentures, Snap-In Dentures might be the solution for you.
4. They’re Easy to Care For
Snap-In Dentures are also easy to care for. You will wear your dentures all day long and then when it comes time to go to bed, you will simply remove your dentures and place them in a bowl of water or denture cleaner. Then, you will gently brush your gums, tongue, and around the implants with toothpaste, and floss to get into the hard-to-reach areas. Once you wake in the morning, you will brush your gums and tongue again as well as your dentures before returning them to your mouth.
5. They Can Last Up To 10 Years
When you get cheap dentures, not only do they never fit right, but they don’t last long. You can’t expect to get more than 5 years out of a cheap pair. On the flip side, Snap-In Dentures can last up to 10 years with proper care. Therefore, they are a smart long-term investment.
6. You Will Taste More Food
When you wear traditional dentures, they cover the palate of your mouth and use suction there to stay in place. Most people aren’t aware, but the palate of the mouth contains taste buds, just like your tongue. When you get Snap-In Dentures, you no longer need to wear dentures that cover the palate of your mouth because they stay secure with help from the dental implants. With that said, you can expect to taste more of your food when you wear Snap-In Dentures.
As a bonus, it will also be easier to eat because your dentures will stay in place. This can help you enjoy all the foods you once loved that were too difficult to maneuver with traditional dentures.
7. Speech Becomes Easier
Not only will food taste better and be easier to eat, but speaking will come easier too. Your dentures won’t move around in your mouth and the palate of your mouth won’t be covered. This allows your tongue more ability to move around freely so speech comes more naturally. If you’ve struggled with a speech impediment due to tooth loss or poor quality dentures, Snap-In Dentures can help.
8. They Eliminate Denture Pain
The last reason why you should get Snap-In Dentures in Rancho Mirage is to eliminate denture pain. Traditional dentures rest on your gums which means that your gums take all of the pressure from eating all day long. With Snap-In Dentures, the jaw absorbs all the pressure due to the dental implants. This means you won’t experience the typical soreness of wearing dentures all day long. In addition, since the dental implants keep your dentures snugly in place, you won’t have to worry about developing denture sores from ill-fitting dentures.
