Fixed or Snap-On Dentures
The key difference between the two options is that fixed dentures are permanent and snap-on dentures are not. Both use dental implants, which serve as replacement roots for your teeth made out of titanium, to hold them in place. The implants are placed in your jawbone and stay there. The bridge or the dentures sit on top.
Fixed Dentures Look More Nanural
Our Patients choose fixed dentures because they look more like natural teeth. Bridges are customized to fit and match the surrounding teeth, including their color. Because of this and advancements in bridge development, the bridge can look very similar to your other teeth, making them blend in better. For many people, having replacement teeth that look like their natural teeth is important. It will help you feel more confident in your smile in the future.
What Are Snap-On Dentures?
Snap-on dentures use the same style of dental implant as the bridges for their base. However, these dentures can be connected or removed with your hands and some light pressure. They work in the same way as traditional dentures and are usually reserved for replacements that cover most of a row of teeth. The key difference is that you attach them to the implants rather than using a sealing agent like dental cement.
