Are you sick of the issues that come with missing teeth, like difficulty eating, speaking, and self-consciousness every time it’s time to smile? If you’ve experienced these frustrations, you’re not alone. Over 120 million Americans have lost at least one permanent tooth, and like many medical issues, this problem worsens as we age. At Ferrari Dental, we understand how debilitating these issues can be and offer multiple denture options for those suffering from partial or complete tooth loss. If you’re looking for a stable denture solution, snap-in dentures may be the right choice for you.
Understanding Snap-In Dentures
Picture your life before missing teeth: eating your favorite foods, speaking with confidence, and smiling without hesitation. Snap-in dentures, also called implant-retained overdentures, can make this a reality once again. Designed for enhanced security, these innovative dentures offer an effective solution for replacing missing teeth.
The Power of Dental Implants
Traditional dentures have long been the go-to choice to replace missing teeth, but they come with their fair share of challenges. That’s where dental implants come into play. Here at Ferrari Dental, we specialize in mini dental implants, a refined and streamlined advancement in dental implant technology. This pioneering technique offers a more permanent, comfortable, and efficient method of tooth replacement compared to traditional dentures and offers many additional benefits.
- Restored chewing power: Dental implants allow you to once again enjoy all the foods you love without restriction, helping you to maintain a more nutritious diet.
- Enhanced speech: The speech impediments caused by missing teeth will be a thing of the past—no more slips and lisps! Dental implants stabilize dentures, helping you articulate more clearly and confidently.
- Maintain bone health: Unlike traditional dentures, dental implants stimulate the jawbone, preventing the loss of bone and tissue. This keeps your jaw healthy and preserves your facial profile.
- Increased self-confidence: Thanks to natural-looking artificial teeth, you can show off a confident smile and regain your self-esteem.
Snap-In Dentures vs. Traditional Dentures
While there are many denture solutions out there, snap-in dentures offer a more secure and long-lasting solution compared to their more old-school counterparts for multiple reasons.
- Size: Traditional dentures are bulky thanks to their large, gum-colored base, which helps provide support at the expense of comfort. Because of their reduction in pink acrylic, snap-in dentures don’t cover your upper palate. This streamlined design allows you to eat and speak more comfortably.
- Design: Big, bulky dentures can feel unstable, like they are floating in your mouth. They may even pop out while eating, speaking, coughing, or laughing. Snap-in dentures offer a secure fit to more closely mimic the look and function of natural teeth.
- Treatment timeline: Snap-in dentures can often be installed in just a single visit, thanks to the minimally invasive mini implant procedure. Most patients can return to their regular routine within a day or two.
- Better durability: Traditional dentures are often removed, increasing the chance of loss or damage. Due to their stability, snap-in dentures offer greater biting power, making it easier to enjoy foods such as a crisp apple, a thick steak, or fresh vegetables. You can trust your snap-in dentures to last longer than their traditional predecessors.
- No adhesive required: Say goodbye to messy, metallic-tasting adhesives: snap-in dentures connect firmly to mini dental implants.
