5 Things you Need to Know About of Snap-On Dentures By Dr. Meek on February 07, 2023

Snap-on dentures are an innovative and popular denture choice for many people who are looking for a comfortable, secure fit. Since snap-on dentures don’t require messy adhesives or frequent adjustments, they offer an attractive alternative to traditional dentures. Let's take a look at 5 benefits of snap-on dentures.

1. Comfort & Security: Snap-on dentures offer the most secure fit compared to traditional dentures because they use special clips that attach to dental implants in your jawbone. This means that you won't have to worry about your teeth slipping or sliding around when you talk or eat. Plus, since there is no need for adhesive, you can enjoy a more natural feeling and greater comfort with every wear. 

2. Convenience: Traditional denture wearers often have to reapply adhesive several times throughout the day and make frequent trips to their dentist for adjustments and repairs, which can be inconvenient and time consuming. With snap-on dentures, all you have to do is clip them on and go! You don’t have to worry about messes or wasting valuable time getting them adjusted. 

3. Increased Longevity: If cared for properly, snap-on dentures will last much longer than traditional ones because they don’t require as much maintenance or frequent repairs due to their secure fit. Additionally, since there is less wear and tear on the teeth with this type of denture, they can help preserve your natural teeth longer if you decide not to replace them with implants down the line.  

4. Improved Speech: Since snap-on dentures are securely attached to your jawbone, it makes it easier for you to speak clearly without worrying about slippage or mispronunciations due to loose teeth moving around in your mouth when you talk.

5 .Enhanced Nutrition: Eating with traditional dentures can be difficult due to food particles getting stuck in between teeth or under the gum line; however, this isn't an issue with snap-on dentures as they provide a more secure fit that helps keep food out of these areas while still allowing you to enjoy all of your favorite foods without difficulty!
