What are the differences among conventional dentures, snap-on dentures and fixed dentures?
Often times patients come to our office and say "I hate my dentures, and I want dental implants". But after a brief conversation, we realize that the patients do not fully understand what they want.
This YouTube video explains the two types of implant dentures:
1) Snap denture:
Snap denture is a removable denture. There are several snaps underneath the denture which will button onto the implants. Snap denture is much more stable than the traditional denture and is easy to clean because it is removable.
2) Fixed denture:
Fixed denture is not removable, it is screwed into the dental implants. It is less bulky than traditional denture and snap denture, and is more comfortable to wear. The disadvantage is more expensive and more difficult to clean.
