If you’re interested in restoring your teeth with dentures but don’t like the feel of traditional full-palate dentures, snap-on dentures may be a good fit for you. Otero Family, Cosmetic & Implant Dentistry offers snap-ons and other types of dentures at our office near Wilmington, North Carolina.
What is the Difference Between Traditional and Snap-on Dentures?
Traditional full-palate upper dentures come with a palate section that helps keep the dentures suctioned in place. This palate section is uncomfortable for many people and can lead to difficulties with swallowing or speaking.
Traditional lower dentures have no way to stay in place, and their constant movement can lead to gum pain.
Snap-on dentures eliminate the need for the palate section by snapping onto four to five secure dental implants. This offers improved comfort and stability when compared to many other types of dentures.
