According to the American College of Prosthodontists, over 36 million people in the U.S. do not have any teeth, and 120 million people are missing at least one tooth. Are you among this population in need of either dental implants or dentures? If so, navigating your prosthodontic options can be difficult, especially if you have financial concerns. Fortunately, snap-in dentures costs are relatively low—even lower when you choose a teaching clinic like Penn Dental Medicine for dental care.
A dental implant is a tooth replacement that is surgically inserted into your jaw. Dentures are removable appliances— usually reserved for patients who have multiple missing teeth. Wearing dentures can help with patient’s eating, speaking and building confidence in their smile. These devices require the same level of cleaning as natural teeth do. Therefore, rinsing, brushing, and storing your dentures in a safe place when you are not using them are all essential care techniques.
Dentures may either be full or partial, depending on the number of teeth lost. In addition, there are three main types of dentures:
An implant-supported denture functions a bit differently. The process involves first inserting and anchoring the necessary implants into the jaw. Next, an extension that can snap on and off will hold the implants in place. Snap-in dentures are an affordable denture choice for patients who need several teeth replaced but cannot afford the cost of multiple implants.
