A More Comfortable, Affordable Solution
Are you unhappy with how traditional, ill-fitting dentures feel? Dr. Henninger offers a type of overdenture, known as a snap-on denture, as a removable, more convenient alternative to complete your smile.
Snap-on dentures are secured to your jawbone with dental implants, promoting a durable foundation and healthy bone growth. Discover how you can benefit from this tooth replacement solution.
Benefits of Snap-On Dentures
Compared to traditional dentures, snap-on dentures can enhance your appearance while providing a number of advantages. Snap-on dentures are:
- Beneficial for your jaw and facial structure, promoting bone growth
- Designed to improve your oral health by protecting your gums
- Completely removable, providing optimal comfort and convenience
- An affordable tooth loss restoration option
- Secured to your jaw, preventing them from sliding out of place
Accurate, Predictable Results
Scheduling your free consultation with Dr. Henninger is the first step toward achieving your stunning new smile. He’ll examine your oral health, discuss your expectations, and explain what to expect when receiving your snap-on dentures.
Our San Diego practice uses both digital and physical impressions to ensure lasting results and help you live more comfortably. With iCAT 3D imagery, Dr. Henninger can plan your treatment with the utmost precision. This is important because the success of the procedure is based on bone volume and density, as well as how well the implants integrate with the jaw.
The Placement Process
During implant placement, Dr Henninger can provide you with IV sedation to alleviate any feelings of discomfort or anxiety. Your dental implants will be secured to your jawbone, providing a durable foundation for your restoration.
After the surgical site has healed, you’ll come back to our office so Dr. Henninger can attach your snap-on dentures to the implants.

Frequently Asked Questions
Are snap-on dentures right for me?
If you currently wear dentures and are unhappy with how they feel, snap-on dentures may be the solution you’ve been looking for. They eliminate the inconvenience and discomfort of ill-fitting dentures while benefiting your oral health.
If you haven’t worn dentures and are missing teeth, it’s likely you’re a candidate for dental implants. It’s best to schedule a consultation with Dr. Henninger so he can examine your oral health and find a solution that fits your needs.
How long does the healing process take?
The healing process typically takes about two weeks after your snap-on dentures have been attached. This period is critical for successful recovery, so it’s important to practice and maintain proper post-operative care during this time.
How do I take care of my dentures after surgery?
After receiving your snap-on dentures, it’s crucial that you follow our post-operative patient guide to ensure a healthy, long-lasting smile.
This means removing your dentures each morning and night to clean them with a soft-bristled brush and non-abrasive toothpaste or denture solution. It’s also important to avoid hard and crunchy foods, and refrain from smoking or drinking alcohol.
What can I eat with snap-on dentures?
One of the many benefits of snap-on dentures is that they’re secured to your jaw, preventing them from slipping out of place. This restoration allows you to eat all of your favorite foods worry-free and without any restrictions.
I have gum disease. Can I still get a snap-on denture?
I suffer from dental anxiety. How can you help?
We understand that anxiety is real, which is why our practice follows a different approach that’s focused on helping you through the process.
