Snap-In Implant Dentures In Andersonville

Snap-In Implant Dentures are dentures with special fittings that allow them to attach (snap-in) to the dental implants your doctor places.

Anchoring your dentures with dental implants allows you to:

Enjoy more of your favorite foods | By securing your denture with dental implants, patients are able to chew with much greater power and confidence.

Non-removable | Doesn’t come in and out of the mouth like a denture.

Smile and laugh without worry of your dentures falling out

Live more comfortably | Dentures not moving as much, less rubbing and chafing

Receive better nutrition | Chew up food better

Requires the least amount of bone | Great for people who have been told they don’t have enough bone for implants.

Reduce bone loss | While a person may continue to lose bone after having their natural teeth removed, dental implants provide stimulation down into the jaw which encourages the body to continue to produce bone.

Reduce or eliminate gagging | In some cases a portion of the palate can be removed exposing the roof of the mouth. This reduces or eliminates gagging caused by your denture.

Increased comfort | Dental implants help reduce or eliminate the irritation caused by movement of the dentures.

Taste your food better | Some patients with implants can have part of their upper denture’s palate removed. This allows you to taste your food better.

What Are Snap-In Implant Dentures?

Enhance your dining experience | By anchoring your denture with dental implants, individuals can enjoy a wider variety of foods and chew with increased strength and self-assurance.

Non-removable | Not removable from the mouth like a denture.

Enjoy a carefree smile and laughter without the fear of your dentures coming loose

Experience enhanced comfort | Dentures with reduced movement, minimal rubbing and chafing

Improve your nutrition | Enhance digestion

Perfect for individuals with insufficient bone | Ideal for those who have been informed about their inadequate bone for implants.

Prevent Bone Loss with Dental Implants | Although bone loss can still occur after tooth extraction, dental implants offer a solution by stimulating the jawbone and promoting ongoing bone production.

Reducing gagging | In some cases, part of the palate can be surgically removed to expose the roof of the mouth. This procedure helps minimize or eliminate the sensation of gagging from dentures.

Improved comfort | Dental implants provide a significant improvement in comfort by minimizing or eliminating the discomfort caused by denture movement.

Enhance your food tasting experience | Certain individuals with implants may opt to have a portion of the palate on their upper denture removed, resulting in an improved ability to taste their food.

Snap-In Implant Dentures vs. Traditional Dentures

Although traditional dentures are known for their aesthetic appeal and affordability as a solution for damaged or missing teeth, they often fall short in terms of overall functionality, stability, and chewing capability.

Disadvantages of traditional (non-implant) dentures:

Reduced chewing ability | The lower denture's movement causes a significant decrease in chewing power, typically only allowing for 10-20% of the chewing capacity compared to natural teeth. The constant pushing and pulling of the tongue and cheeks on the lower denture leads to its instability.

Speech | Speaking can be challenging because of the mobility of the lower denture.

Embarrassment | Triggered by the fear of dentures becoming loose and falling out, hindering the ability to eat in public, laugh freely, and engage in confident conversations.

Discomfort | Traditional dentures, particularly lower ones, have a tendency to shift and slide, leading to potential gum irritation and discomfort.

Poor nutrition | Once again, as a result of diminished chewing ability, individuals may find it challenging to consume a well-rounded diet and adequately chew their food for optimal digestion.

Bone loss | Following tooth extraction, individuals commonly experience significant bone loss, which continues throughout their lifetime. Consequently, wearing traditional dentures becomes increasingly challenging as time goes on.

Gagging | Many individuals experience gagging due to the traditional upper denture that covers the roof of their mouth. This denture is designed to provide suction and stability but can be problematic for some. Trimming the denture to alleviate gagging can result in reduced stability and the loss of natural suction.

Snap-In Implant Dentures greatly improve all of these issues.

Snap-In Implant Dentures Procedure Timeline

On average, the process usually lasts for approximately 6 months from beginning to end.



Once all remaining teeth are extracted and any additional oral surgery procedures are completed, the implants are surgically inserted into the jawbone. Subsequently, the implants are usually not visible as they remain undisturbed in your jaw for a minimum of 4 months, allowing for osseointegration, the process of your bone bonding with the implants.


Post Op

Please schedule a post-operative appointment for the day after your procedure. During this visit, we will assess your mouth, ensure the dentures fit comfortably, and address any inquiries you may have. We look forward to seeing you then.


Soft Liners / Soft Re-Fittings

Soft liners are used as cushions in your denture during the healing process. They serve to fill the gaps between your gums and dentures that occur as you heal, providing a cushioning effect for your gums. By improving the fit and feel of your dentures, they enhance your overall comfort.



This is a smaller surgical procedure where we expose the implants and place small healing abutments on top of them to properly shape your gum tissue and prepare you to finish your snap-in dentures.


Attachment of Implants to Dentures

We will replace your healing abutments with denture abutments and complete the necessary procedures to connect your dentures to your implants. Typically, this process can be completed within a day, although occasionally it may take a bit longer.
