Snap-On Implant Dentures Process
When you feel insecure about your smile as a result of tooth loss, it can make you feel withdrawn, affecting your self-confidence. And if you are missing the entire top or bottom rows of your teeth, it can intensify this struggle with your appearance and make you want to seclude yourself from those around you. But with snap-on implant dentures, you can get the smile of your dreams and start living the life you deserve.
The experts at Buckhead Cosmetic and Family Dentistry will utilize their specialized care to give you a gorgeous smile that will last a lifetime.
Schedule a Consultation for Snap-On Implant Dentures
In order to be eligible for snap-on implant dentures, you will need to schedule a consultation with our advanced implant dentistry specialist. During this appointment, your specialist will perform a routine dental examination, as well as review your x-rays and CT scans to determine if you qualify. If you are approved, we will map out the placement of your snap-on implant dentures before your procedure.
Anatomical differences in the top and bottom jaws dictate how many implants will be necessary. While lower dentures only need two implants for support, upper dentures usually require at least four implants for stability.
In some instances, you may be able to have your existing dentures modified into snap-on implant dentures. If this is not the case, our implant specialist will create new dentures for you.
Preparing for Sedation Implant Dentistry
During your consultation, we will discuss sedation options that may be available to you including nitrous oxide and general anesthesia. Pur dental implant specialist can answer any question you have about each method and make recommendations for what will work best for you based on your medical history and anxiety level.
The Process of Getting Snap-On Implant Dentures
In most cases, the procedure is simple and can be completed in one visit. Once you have been numbed, the titanium implants will be placed in positions within your gums that enforce support.
The procedure should take one to three hours based on the number of implants you receive.
What to Expect After Your Dental Implant Dentures Procedure
Once your titanium implants have been placed, they will need around six weeks to fuse to your jawbone before they are able to support your dentures. During this time, you will be given modified dentures to wear that are specifically made to put minimal pressure on the implants while they heal.
After the titanium implants have fully fused to the jawbone, our implant specialist will demonstrate how to apply and detach your dentures from the implants. While your snap-on implant dentures will provide you with maximum support and security, it is important that you take them out for routine maintenance and cleaning as you would with traditional dentures.
