Do you wear dentures, but you’re just not happy with them? If you’re dealing with ill-fitting dentures that make your mouth sore or if you constantly worry that they will embarrassingly slip around or even fall out when you are eating or speaking, dental implants may be an option for you.
Arlington dentist, Dr. Alana Macalik loves being able to help restore patients’ smiles with dental implants. She also knows that budgets are tight for many people, so she makes it a priority to find ways for her patients to take advantage of dental implants – first, by keeping fees reasonable and second, by offering more affordable options without sacrificing quality. One of those options is snap-on dentures.
Snap On a More Confident Smile
Compared to implant procedures where four to six implants are placed, Snap-on dentures are a much more affordable option (saving about half the cost) because only two implants are placed. After your jawbone heals and bonds to the implants, your dentures can be snapped on – making them feel more like natural teeth. While they are not as secure as the more expensive options, you will notice greater stability when speaking and chewing, and over all, you’ll have more confidence when you smile.
Dental implants mimic the structure of natural teeth, actually making your jawbone healthier by preventing jawbone shrinkage (known as facial collapse), which occurs over time when all of your teeth are missing. Even just having two implants placed will help preserve the bone right around the implants. Other advantages of snap-on dentures include:
- No more messy creams or adhesives
- Improved chewing and speech
- No embarrassing situations due to loose dentures slipping out
- A look and feel more like natural teeth
Quality, Affordable Dental Implants
When it comes to dental implants, Dr. Macalik has received training from one of the best in the industry – Dr. Arun Garg, a renowned dental surgeon and educator. Not only does she use high-quality materials to achieve the best possible outcome for each patient, she performs many implant surgeries herself. However, if a case is more complicated, she has a periodontist and an oral surgeon she can bring in.
If you are wondering if you might be a candidate for affordable dental implants, call our office or request an appointment online. Dr. Macalik will take the time to review your specific case and determine whether or not snap-on dentures will work for you.
