Dental Implants Ask The Dentist Richard Winter Question:
Snap In Dentures on Implants: Would appreciate help. I have Full Mouth Implants put in and was not given option of having snap in dentures until later read about it.

I was not clear on whole procedure. Not what expected or given option. Always pockets of food left and difficult to clean out good.

I was told this would all be stopped when permanent teeth were put in, but has not. Also much clicking of teeth when talking, walking etc.

The permanent teeth have now been put in with very heavy substance, and now even difficult to get out to even to fix clicking.

I want to know if these permanent teeth are taken out, can snap ons be put on the implant posts? Or do I need new teeth again? This took a years time and $80,000. ...Visitor from NV

Answer:
I am sorry for your problems. Once implants are placed and integrated they should be able to be converted to overdentures with attachments fairly easily.

I would discuss the possibility of going from fixed teeth to a removable overdenture with your dentist.

If your food impaction and difficulty cleaning your gums is a problem, then your dentist with whom you have spent much time and money should be willing to work with you to help you achieve your goals.

If your dentist is placing bridges they may have to be cut off or destroyed to put you back into removable dentures. You mention they were put in with a heavy substance. I don't know what you are referring to.

If they are removable they are changeable. Talk to your dentist and work on a solution. Best of luck.
