What is Snap-On Dentures?
Snap-on is basically a high quality standard denture that uses a simple attachment system to securely connect to implants in the mouth. Like other dentures, Snap-on teeth are removable, but they have many of the benefits of more expensive full mouth implants without the huge price tag. No more denture glue. And Snap-on dentures also do not cover the palate with acrylic and they are quite a bit less bulky than traditional false teeth. But, again, Snap-on teeth are removable and many people are still going to demand permanent full mouth dental implants.

Snap on dentures have many of the advantages of fancy full mouth permanent implants without the big price tag. For example, snap on teeth are very stable in the mouth when eating hard foods such as apples and steak. Snap-on implants do not cover the palate with plastic like bulky conventional dentures. The disadvantages of Snap-on is they are dentures made of a plastic material. And they do need to be taken in and out of the mouth to clean. Denture material feels relatively cheap and does wear and discolor more than higher quality permanent implant teeth.
How do Snap on Teeth Work
Snap on teeth are specially made implant dentures that snap very tightly down onto the gums. The snap-on system consists of a male and female attachment that come together when the denture is literally snapped into the mouth. The male sits on top of the implant and the female is built into the denture teeth. The system avoids the use of messy denture glue. Snap-on attachments can convert poor-fitting dentures into teeth that can bite into an apples and corn on the cob. Where most dentures can slide and dislodge, Snap-in holds the teeth firmly in place to prevent an embarrassing moment. Most people missing teeth find value and think snap-on dentures are worth the extra expense.
Snap-On Male/Female Connection
Snap on dentures is an attachment system manufactured by Zest Anchors. Snap-on consists of a male and a female pair that snap dentures firmly down onto the gums. The male is also called a locator abutment and is gold in color. The female is a dish-shaped piece that houses a plastic insert. The female lives in the under side of the denture. The male lives permanently in the mouth on top of the implant. The attachment system enables the denture to “snap” into place when the male and female engage firmly as the denture implant is put in the mouth.
