Traditional Dentures vs. Snap-In Dentures
Smile Lounge offers traditional and snap-in dentures, but what’s the difference? Traditional dentures, consisting of plates held in place with denture adhesive, are the traditional form of restorative dentistry and can be an excellent choice for those requiring denture replacement. They are custom-made and allow wearers to eat and drink as they usually would while maintaining a secure fit.
On the other hand, snap-in dentures offer even more stability by clipping directly onto dental implants surgically placed in the jawbone. This added security provides a denture that fits better and feels more natural, allowing wearers to maintain their lifestyle with little worry about their dentures slipping out of place in public. Both types of dentures provide substantial benefits for individuals who require denture replacement, making both options worthy considerations for anyone looking to replace missing teeth.
Advantages of Dentures
Dentures present many rewards to those who require them. Not only do dentures restore a smile’s aesthetic appeal, but denture wearers can often experience improved speech and chewing with dentures when compared to life without dentures. Additionally, dentures can help shape the face and eliminate facial wrinkles caused by missing teeth that can prematurely age one’s appearance. Dentures are an excellent choice for improving oral health with their many positive effects.
How It Works
Denture treatment begins with a consultation with a denturist or denture specialist. During this visit, the denturist will conduct an assessment and explain the denture selection procedure. Next, impression and bite registrations are taken to customize denture fit and functionality. After ensuring that the dentures are comfortable and properly fitted, the dentures may be issued, allowing patients to enjoy the improved speech, oral function, nutrition, esthetics, and self-confidence without delay.
