Bar Retained Snap on Dentures

Bar Retained Snap on Dentures are considered by some dentist the best option for Snap on restorations. Bar retained dentures require regular implants not mini-implants as a secondary bar is screwed into the implants. The most important thing is that the bar has a passive fit over the implants, we achieve this by fabricating the bar in-house lab with our CAD/CAM and milling technologies available. Bar retained dentures require at least 2 implants to a maximum of 8. The bar is usually thin and runs along your mouth over your arch retained by a screw and a connector onto the implants.

Longer stretches of retention make it the least mobile option for snap in dentures, the only downside to this treatment is that the attachment that goes inside the denture wears out and requires changing every year or so, some patients can change them out without the need of a dentist.

Bar Retained Snap in Dentures require two visits to Cancun, the Surgical Phase requires at least a 7 day stay and the Restorative Phase requiring at least 8 days stay in Cancun.

Ball Abutment Retained Snap on Dentures

Ball Abutments are probably the most common attachment for Snap on Dentures. Ball Abutments can be used with Regular Implants and Mini Implants.

Mini Implants are mostly used for stabilizing dentures, in some cases it can be used for single tooth implants and even full-arch restorations as well. The FDA has approved some Mini Implant Systems for long term use, and patients can have a denture stabilized in about an hour after the final dentures are made at the lab.

For stabilizing dentures Dr. Gavaldon recommends that about six mini implants are inserted in the front of the patient’s lower jaw and six to eight on the upper jaw.

This requires mild anesthesia. The dentist adjusts the denture to snap on to the Mini Implants and secure it.

Denture wearers’ also can remove the prosthesis for cleaning and snap it back in place once finished.

Locators Retained Snap on Dentures

Locators Implant Abutments are designed for use with overdentures or partial dentures retained in whole or in part by dental implants in the mandible or maxilla. Locator abutments are available in a variety of cuff heights for all of the internal implant platform sizes from 3.0mm to 5.7mm.

According to recent studies, a two implantretained, tissue-supported overdenture restoration is considered the new minimum standard of care for edentulous patients. More than two implants may also be placed for an implant-retained overdenture.

In clinical situations where healthy tooth roots can be prepared for placement of attachments to retain an overdenture, the Locator Root Attachment delivers great versatility. Its supra-radicular design gives you the choice of a straight post, 10° and 20° angles to accommodate divergent roots, as well as a special cast-to version.

How do the Snap on Dentures work?

How Do the Snap on Dentures Work

With the Snap on Dentures a patient will have the advantage of having a Fixed Restoration that they are able to give maintenance to themselves. Meaning no need for visits to the Dentist for periodic denture cleanings. Snap on Dentures are used with a ball and housing concept. The ball abutment which is connected to the Implant acts as the male connection and attaches to a housing and O-ring unit located in the Denture, which acts as the female connection. The O-ring inside of the denture makes a tight fit to the abutment giving it very good retention.

The Snap on Dentures is a palateless denture make of high impact acrylic with this restoration you have the advantage of eating all the foods you love without worrying about the denture falling out or breaking.

There are two types of denture with the Snap on effect. Bar retained and ball retained. Either will be made from acrylic base and acrylic or porcelain teeth that will look natural.

Mini Dental Implant

Snap on Dentures are used along with Mini Implants for patients seeking an immediate loaded Denture. Mini implants (MDI) are small titanium screw that are designed to be placed on your jaw bone, are strong enough to withstand normal chewing force and can be used confidently for immediate load and long term restorations. They act like regular Implants but are not as invasive as regular implants. They can also work very well with traditional Implants. Snap on Dentures can work with as many as 2 Implants on the bottom jaw and 4 on the upper. Of course the more Implants you have the better retention you will have.

Regular Implants

Regular Implants

Regular Implants are cylinders or screws made of titanium that act as anchors, replacing your natural tooth roots. Used for either your upper or lower jaw, these implants are directly attached to your jawbone and gum tissue. Traditional implants eliminate the hassle of removable dentures, and they look, feel and function like natural teeth, allowing you to eat the foods you love, speak and smile with more confidence.

Regular Implants are larger than Mini Implants and provide a more stable, long-term solution. However these implants also require sufficient jawbone tissue for support. Patients with jawbone atrophy may not qualify for traditional implants without a preliminary Bone Graft.

Traditional Implants feature two pieces: a post and an abutment. The abutment serves to connect the implant to the restoration.

If you require a preliminary Bone Graft or Sinus Lift, you must wait 6 – 9 months for your jaw to heal before implants can be placed. After Traditional Implant surgery, you must wait an additional 3 – 6 months for the posts to integrate with surrounding tissue before you can receive your restoration.

Mini Implants

Mini Implants

Mini Implants are made from titanium alloys are strong enough to withstand normal chewing force and can be used confidently for immediate load and long term restorations. Mini implants are mostly used for stabilizing dentures, in some cases it can be used for single tooth implants and even full-arch restorations as well.

For placing implants in an extraction site, in most cases, it is in the patient’s best interest to use a traditional implant to help preserve the bone and promote better osseointegration.

The chewing force applied from a crown would overwhelm a Mini Implant and put way too much pressure on the bone. Since Mini Implants require a proper amount of bone to support them, they cannot be used in the area of the jaw with inadequate vertical bone or if there has been too much bone loss.

You might not be a good candidate for Mini Implants if you grind your teeth regularly as it may wear them down prematurely.

Review: “I love them like my own family now!”

Treatment: Thomas not hoped outcome of his treatment. He had mobility of teeth, failed bridge work, amalgam fillings that had filtration, and overall unhealthy teeth. He put his trust in the hands of out specialist and a year later, and after 2 visits to Cancun, he knew he came to the right place. Thomas was very pleased with the professionalism and the dedication to detail our specialists took on his case, and was surprised to know that our clinic had more modern equipment and technology than his dentists at home. Thomas received 12 implants, 6 on the upper maxillary and 6 on the lower mandible, not to mention the full extraction of his remaining teeth. Thomas chose to place a Fixed Hybrid Denture on his upper jaw, and use a Snap on denture for his lower.

Snap on Dentures FAQ

The average length of stay in Cancun is between 7 and 14 days. If your procedure doesn’t involve multiple extractions or bone-grafting then your stay will be shorter than those that do require these procedures to allow for adequate recovery time.

Please send us an e-mail at Contact@CancunDentalSpecialists.com

Our Dentists recommend that any extractions are performed by us in our state-of-the-art clinic. The success of an All of 4 procedure depends on preserving the maximum amount of bone in the jaw, something that can be compromised during extractions that are not undertaken carefully. As part of our commitment to patient care we would always prefer to provide all procedures so that we can assure the highest quality results for you.

Yes, and you should stop smoking before you come to Mexico to attend for your procedure. As well as the well-known risks to your general health, smoking is associated with a wide variety of oral health problems including tooth loss, bone loss, periodontal disease, reduced oral blood flow and implant failures. Because of the poor outcomes associated with smoking and implant procedures we won’t be able to treat you at our clinic in Cancun until you have signed a waiver stating that you are a non-smoker. We realise that for many people this can be a difficult addiction to break and we will support you with this including providing stop smoking advice and even prescription medication to help you if required.

Not necessarily. In order for us to be able to perform an All on 4 you will need an A1C level below 8.0. Please ask for a test through your regular physician or contact us for more information.

In most cases you will still be a good candidate for dental implants, however we assess each patient on a case-by-case basis. Please let us know if you are taking bisphosphonates and we will be able to advise you more specifically.

Traditional implant technology meant that many people have been told they are not a suitable candidate. With our new All on 4 procedure we find that we are now able to offer implants to almost 90% of patients who had previously been told they were not a viable candidate. Our All on 4 system uses the front area of the jaw which actually contains the densest bone. The unique way that the implants are angled means a much less invasive procedure with no need to enter the sinus cavity. If you have been told in the past that traditional implants aren’t available to you contact us today for the very latest advice and information.

We do, but at our Cancun clinic we use Conscious Sedation. Our aneasthesiologsts provide a perfect balance of sedative and and pain blocking medication to keep you awake and responsive, yet deeply relaxed and totally pain-free. This type of skilled sedation is hugely beneficial to you as it has remarkably short recovery time, and you will be able to carry on with your day soon after the procedure.

The All on 4 implant procedure has a higher success rate than other implant procedures, thanks to to the unique process used. Top quality dentists will ensure you have a thorough after-care advice program to help you to keep your new implants in perfect condition and to care for the implantation sites while final healing is occurring. They will also prescribe medication including antibiotics to support your healing. If you follow the after-care advice then risks of complications like infection is minimal.

The biggest risk comes from a poorly performed procedure itself. At our clinic in Cancun we see several patients each month who have suffered due to visiting an inexperienced or unqualified dentist with too little practical experience of modern implant techniques. The most important advice is to make sure that the clinic and dentist you choose to perform your procedure is modern and well-equipped, with fully accredited personnel, and most importantly a long track record of succesful implant procedures and client testimonials.
