There are multiple reasons why patients lose their teeth, including gum disease and other dental complications. Traditionally, dentures have been fixed into the mouth with special adhesives or creams, but even the strongest of these methods can still result in shifting and looseness of upper and lower dentures. At Smiles & Beyond Denture Clinic, we can attach dentures to dental implants for a more secure and confident fit. These dentures can either be removable or fixed, depending on the patient.

Snap in dentures available at Smiles & Beyond Denture Clinic in Edmonton
Dentures are dental prosthetics that replace your missing teeth. In situations where the remaining gum and bone tissue are not enough to support a denture, the denture is fixed into place using denture adhesives and creams. These methods can be unreliable and lead to a lack of confidence while talking and eating, not to mention messy. At Smiles & Beyond Denture Clinic, we specialize in implant removable dentures that are attached to dental implants for a more reliable, cost effective solution.
The Convenience of Snap-in Dentures
For upper dentures, a common concern among patients is the extensive coverage of the roof of the mouth, which can make it more difficult to taste and enjoy food. With removable implant dentures, this problem can be successfully addressed by attaching the denture to four secure implants, in which the denture "clips" on and off. This technique allows the denture prosthetic to be smaller, increasing your ability to eat naturally and eliminates the need to cover the roof of your mouth.
Lower dentures are frequently more difficult to wear, as there is no suction to help secure the Denture into place. Patients typically have to hold it into place with their cheeks and tongue in order to keep it from shifting too much, but with just two implants placed into the lower jaw, lower dentures can be securely attached without issue.
Implant Dentures in Edmonton and Area
Depending on your individual condition and preferences, the process to place implants into the upper and lower jaw is usually done in one appointment with the Dentist or Oral Surgeon . At Smiles & Beyond Denture Clinic, we can help with the referral for implant placement. Healing of the implants can take a few or several months, this amount of time is required for the biocompatible titanium screws to properly adhere to the jawbones. The upper and lower dentures are then designed to fit snug into the mouth. Snap-in dentures can then be taken out for convenient cleaning and maintenance.
