Snap-On Denture

snap-on dentureA snap-on denture is pictured at the right. It consists of two dental implants and a complete denture.

While there are other options for complete dentures that are more functional and more stable, sometimes budget can be an issue. This option is an entry-level treatment which can later be upgraded to add more implants.

The cost is usually directly related to the number of implants placed. So this option is the least costly.

This is a model of a snap-on denture. With only two dental implants, it is the most economical choice. It relies on some tissue support, so there is a possibility of tissue irritation. But it is firmly anchored and will not float or shift in the mouth. The piezoelectric effect of the two implants will prevent bone atrophy around those implants.
