Ensuring Lasting Smiles: Maintenance Insights for Snap-In Dentures and Fixed-In-One-Day Teeth
At Allez Dental, we understand that maintaining your smile is as important as creating it. Whether you choose snap-in dentures or fixed-in-one-day teeth, our commitment to your oral health is unwavering. Let's delve into the details of cleaning and maintenance for these two implant-supported prosthesis options.
Snap-in dentures, a removable option supported by implants, offer an excellent balance between stability and convenience. At least four implants are recommended for optimal stability, and these dentures "snap" on and off the dental implants with ease. The key advantage lies in their maintenance, reflecting that of regular dentures.
To keep your snap-in dentures in optimal condition, simply remove them at least once a day and clean them thoroughly. Brush the dentures and the supporting implants, and you're good to go! You don't need frequent dental appointments for maintenance of dental implants.
While the psychological aspect of removable teeth may be a consideration, the hygienic benefits save you money in the long run, ensuring that both your Allez Dental's implants and prosthetics remain clean and functional.
Fixed Teeth in a Day
In comparison, fixed-in-one-day teeth offer a different maintenance experience. Although they provide a psychological advantage of dental stability, the hygiene routine is more complex. Cleaning fixed teeth in the patient's mouth requires skill and involves a combination of brushing, flossing, and a dental irrigator.
Over time, calculus accumulates in hard-to-reach areas with regular cleaning tools. To address this, fixed teeth must be unscrewed from the implants periodically for thorough cleaning. Regular dental appointments every 6-8 months with a fixed teeth specialist are necessary for proper maintenance. These appointments, while crucial for oral health, come at a cost of approximately $200 per dental arch
Additionally, if any food particles get trapped in areas inaccessible to regular cleaning tools, a dental appointment is needed to unscrew the teeth and address the issue. Despite the effort and occasional costs, fixed teeth in a day offer the assurance of a stable denture.
"At Allez Dental, we recognize that your choice of implant-supported dentures is personal, whether you prefer the ease of snap-in dentures or the stability of fixed teeth in a day".
