When you go to see your dental provider regarding dentures, the first thing that your dentist does is assess your jaw to see if it could support snap in denture implants. If the jaw is compromised, surgery may be warranted for a bone graft. Next, your mouth needs time to heal. An oral surgeon or specialist will put the dental implants in your jaw with a surgical procedure and it typically takes anywhere from two to six months to fully heal. The goal is for bone to grow around the implants, which serves to stabilize them and keep them in place for your denture. Sometimes, this process requires another surgery to insert a base for overdentures. Your dental provider can provide more information regarding if this is necessary. Once you have healed, you will be ready to be fitted for your snap in or snap on dentures.
