At West Houston Dental Center, we offer Snap-On Dentures. Snap-On Dentures easily snap onto usually two implants on the lower jaw and four implants on the upper jaw. On the lower jaw with two implants on top of each implant is fixed a male attachment, each of which snaps into a female attachment (called Locators), which are embedded in the Snap-On Denture. Because the Snap-On Denture connects to the implants, which are rock solid in the bone of the jaw, it does not move around much or flop up or let food get under the teeth.
On the upper jaw with four implants a metal bar is fabricated which screws on to the four implants. On the bottom side of the bar is attached four male attachments, each of which snaps into a female attachment (called Locators), which are embedded in the Snap-On Denture. Because the bone in the upper jaw is not as dense as that in the lower jaw, four implants are required for long-term stability.
With the Snap-On Dentures you have much more confidence with firmly set teeth; you eat better, smile more, talk more clearly, and show your full personality. Most people feel they look and act younger. Give us a call today for more information!
