Snap-In dentures, also known as implant-retained dentures or over-dentures are prostheses that although secured by implants, they are still removable. The advantages of snap-in dentures focuses on the increased retention as compared to a conventional removable denture. It is also easier to clean in comparison to a fixed denture. Although removable, the snap-in denture provides the same functional and esthetic necessities patients’ desire while maintaining a more natural quality of life. The main advantage of Snap-In dentures is to allow teeth to appear natural-looking, by removing the conventional, visible, metal clasps or hooks.
Depending upon the number of implants that are required, it may be possible to eliminate the need for covering the roof of the mouth with a complete denture. This design allows the patient to fully taste food along with a better sense of its temperature. This type of denture design will feel much more natural.
