What are Snap-In Dentures?

Unlike regular dentures that are held in place with messy, unreliable pastes, Snap-In dentures use dental implants to “snap” into place. This prevents common issues many denture-wearers experience, such as slipping, rocking, rubbing, and falling out, while allowing for super simple removal and reattachment. So you can easily clean your dentures and enjoy the foods you love!

“Are Snap-In Dentures Right for Me?”

The routine care and maintenance of Snap-In dentures are the same as regular dentures. You’ll still need to remove them before bed every night, soak them in a denture cleaning solution and brush them before reinsertion.

The biggest difference between Snap-In dentures and standard dentures is that Snap-In dentures require dental implants to function. For patients who already have 2 to 4 dental implants, this won’t be an issue, as the implants can be fitted with abutments that allow for the Snap-In appliance to work.

The Snap-In Denture Process

The process of getting Snap-In dentures can vary depending on your unique dental situation. If you don’t already have dental implants, you’ll first need to undergo the dental implant procedure.

Sometimes, standard dentures can also be retrofitted into Snap-In dentures.

To understand all of your options, you’ll need to come into our Thornton dental office for a consultation. Feel free to give us a call or book an appointment online, and our denture specialists will explain the next steps in the process to help you determine if Snap-In dentures are the right choice for you.

The Cost of Snap-In Dentures in Thornton

The exact cost of Snap-In dentures will vary depending on your unique dental condition and requirements, including:

  • Whether or not you already have dental implants
  • Whether or not you already have dentures
  • The condition of your jawbone
  • How many (if any) dental implants you’ll require

Considering these variables, you can expect to pay around $1,500 to $4,500+ for Snap-In Dentures.

If you also require dental implants, expect to pay an additional $1,500 to $2,000 per implant. Many insurance plans cover dental implants. We recommend checking with your provider before committing to an implant procedure.

Remember, no one can give you an accurate quote for a dental procedure without an examination. If you’re considering getting Snap-In dentures, you’ll first need to call or contact our Thornton Dental office to book your consultation. Or, simply book an appointment online!

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, you can wear your dentures to bed but its recommended that you don’t. You should get into the habit of taking them out at night to soak so you can clean your mouth, gums and remaining natural teeth and then give your gums and jaw a chance to rest.

After you’ve had some time to adjust to your dentures you should be able to eat almost anything. There are some foods that are hard on your dentures or that might cause rubbing or irritation. Foods that are hard or sticky like caramel, carrot sticks or a tough cut of meat or foods that contain little particles like popcorn or seeded crackers might present some challenge and should perhaps be enjoyed only as an occasional treat.

With routine care and maintenance, your dentures should be good for 5 – 10 years. Aside from wear and tear on the dentures themselves, your mouth also changes over time and you may eventually decide it’s best to get fitted for a completely new set.

Hands down the best Dentist I have been to. I’ve had many bad experiences with dentist offices resulting in awful Anxiety and led to me putting off important dental care. From the first phone call to this office I felt nothing but positive feelings. My first appointment made me feel heard, understood, and given the best care! They’ve helped tremendously with my dental anxiety,

This dental group and dentist are always welcoming, professional, clean, and pleasant to be around. I moved out of the area and continue to drive 45 minutes to have my dental care with them. I trust them with my dental needs and that says a lot for many people and their dental anxiety. My favorite aspect of my visits is that they talk to me and joke around. They aren’t stuffy and boring!

Kevin Coleman

Very happy with my experience. Everyone was really great and personable. My doctor was very thorough and understanding and patient. The dental assistants were awesome and did a great job of making a painful experience a lot more pleasant. I walked away feeling like I have friends in the dental business and not just a place to get work done. I won't be going to any other dentist and would recommend them for sure.
