Mini Implant Dentures FAQs

If you have a poor bone density or bone narrowness, then the Snap-In Dentures over mini implants could be the ideal solution for you.

If you do not have enough bone for a permanent solution like the All On 4, then the Snap-On dentures could be the last chance to get an implanted denture.

The head of the mini-implant is shaped like an o-ball and it will lock down the dentures when they snap.

This is how the mini implant anchorage system works. The head is shaped like an O-Ball and the clip on denture comes with housings encrusted in the inner base.

The Snap-On Dentures is a prosthetic device that hooks, clips or sits over the head of the mini dental implants previously placed into your bone. The palateless denture comes with encrusted rubber/metal housings that will clip over the head of the minis.

The housings sit and lock over the head of the mini implant. Once you clip on the denture, you will get a strong grip to chew any foods you like!

You only need 8 complete days in Cancun, or 12 days if you need any extractions as well.

Most Common Snap On Dentures Questions We Receive

Do I need any denture adhesive with Snap on Dentures?

No, you will be able to ditch your dentures adhesive and glue forever!

Denture adhesive can cause several stomach problems. Even if you use the best brand! They usually can never hold the bite pressure. The adhesive can lose adhesion, causing you embarrassing situations while you speak, laugh or eat.

The Snap-In Dentures is a palateless denture that snaps on and off from your jawbone. You only need to pressure it with your fingers against your bone (where the mini-implants were set) to lock it down. You can snap it on and off as many times as needed.

Can I sleep with my Snap In Dentures?

Yes, you can. It is a personal choice (like sleeping with the socks on). You can sleep with or without them. Take them in and out as many times as you need to clean them. You can snap them on and off your as many times desired.

How long do the mini dental implants set surgery takes?

The surgery takes about 2.5 hours.

During the next days, you will return to the clinic at least 3 more times for your waxing tests. Your final Snap On Dentures will be ready just after eight days! You can have new teeth in just one week in Cancun!

Can I get extractions on the same trip you set the mini-implant dentures?

Yes. If you need them, please try to visit us for 12 days as we need the swelling to go down a bit before the wax tests. In this case, we will be performing the extractions in the first session. The Snap-in dentures price already includes four extractions for free. Contact us for further details.

Is the Snap On Dentures a permanent dentures solution? 

No, the Snap-In Dentures is removable. If you want a permanent and fixed solution, then you need the All On Four treatment, click here to learn more about the permanent dentures.

Can my current dentures be adapted to be Snap-On Dentures? 

Yes, in most cases it can be done. When you use dentures your bone continues to shrink. In some cases, the dentures cant be longer used. In some other cases, it can be easily adapted with the rubber o-rings that are encrusted on the base of the denture.

How stable are the mini dental implants

Mini Dental Implants (MDI) do not have the same stability as the regular size implants. The MDI is smaller is size and width. They are specifically designed for people that lack a large amount of bone. It is not the ideal solution if you have a good bone condition. Therefore, the mini implants have a bigger chance to fail in case the patient lacks the proper oral hygiene or if he smokes, for example.

Is it possible to have palateless dentures without implants?

No, it is not possible. With common dentures, you need the roof of the mouth to create an area where you can place the adhesive or glue. If you want a palateless denture you need either mini or regular implants.
