Discover the Benefits of Snap-On Dentures for a Secure, Comfortable, and Confidence-Boosting Solution

Snap-On dentures are a popular option for patients who want a secure and comfortable fit. They are also known as implant-supported dentures or overdentures and provide a solution for those who have lost most or all of their teeth.

Why Choose Snap-On Dentures Over Conventional Dentures?

Snap-On Dentures are a superior solution for patients seeking improved stability, comfort, and function compared to traditional dentures. Unlike conventional dentures, Snap-On Dentures are securely attached to dental implants, providing patients with a host of advantages:

Enhanced Stability

Snap-On Dentures use implant-supported attachments to hold the dentures in place, eliminating the risk of slipping or shifting during everyday activities such as talking, eating, and laughing.

Improved Comfort

The added stability of Snap-On Dentures eliminates the need for adhesive pastes, making them more comfortable to wear and easier to maintain.

Natural Look & Feel

With a more secure fit, Snap-On Dentures provide a natural appearance and allow patients to regain their confidence while smiling and speaking.

Better Functionality

Patients can enjoy a wider variety of foods and experience less difficulty with speech, as Snap-On Dentures offer improved bite force and stability.

Preserved Jawbone

Dental implants help prevent jawbone deterioration, which is common with conventional dentures, maintaining facial structure and reducing the need for adjustments.

Easy Maintenance

Snap-On Dentures can be easily removed for cleaning and maintenance, simplifying oral hygiene routines.

While Snap-On Dentures have many advantages, it is important to acknowledge a few potential drawbacks:


Snap-On Dentures may have a higher initial cost compared to conventional dentures, primarily due to the implant procedure. However, the long-term benefits and improved quality of life often outweigh the initial investment for many patients.


Patients must undergo minor surgery for the placement of dental implants. This option may not be suitable for everyone, especially those with certain medical conditions or compromised jawbones, necessitating a thorough evaluation before proceeding.
Types of Snap-On Dentures:

Bar-Retained vs. Ball-Retained

Snap-On Dentures are available in two main types: bar-retained and ball-retained, both of which have their unique advantages and disadvantages:

Bar-Retained Snap-On Dentures

These dentures feature a thin metal bar that follows the curve of the jaw and is attached to dental implants. Clips or other types of attachments on the denture base connect to the bar, providing a secure fit. The bar-retained system evenly distributes the force of biting and chewing, which may reduce stress on the implants and promote long-term success. However, this option may require more implants and can be slightly more expensive than ball-retained dentures.

Ball-Retained Snap-On Dentures

Also known as “stud-attachment dentures,” ball-retained dentures use a ball-and-socket mechanism to connect the dentures to the implants. Each implant has a small metal ball on top that fits snugly into a socket on the denture base. This system offers a secure fit and easy maintenance, with fewer implants typically required compared to bar-retained dentures. However, the ball-retained system may be less effective in distributing biting and chewing forces, potentially leading to increased wear on the attachments.
