The snap-on dentures are not unbreakable. They are not made of steel; we fabricate them with acrylic and porcelain finish. You must be careful not to drop them to the floor since they can break even if you drop them a few inches.

You will need to clean your new Snap in Dentures every night with mild soap and water. Please, avoid any dentures soaps or pills and avoid scrubbing them.

Place them under the water tap. You can use a soft brush and neutral soap.

After cleaning them with water and soap, dry them by placing them over a folded towel to avoid accidentally dropping them.

 

If you sleep with them, you have to clean them again in the morning.

Use Your Snap In Dentures Overnight

One of the most common questions is if you can sleep with your new mini implant dentures. The answer is yes. It is like sleeping with socks; it is a personal choice.

Do Not Experiment With Your Snap Dentures

Any abrasive cleaners or harsh whitening toothpaste will damage your palateless dentures. Soaking or bleaching can damage them permanently. Please do NOT boil the clip-on dentures with water.

Avoid Do-It-Yourself Repairs On Your Mini Implant Dentures

Please do not try to repair the denture yourself if the Snap In Dentures needs repairs or adjustments. Any denturist or dentist can make the necessary adjustments to ensure a comfortable fit and avoid future problems. 

You can also come down to Cancun every year to replace the rubber housings and have a general clean and polish of your Snap-On Denture. It will look like new.

Brush Your Gums Too!

Optimal oral hygiene helps. When you brush, you avoid problems such as soreness, irritation, and infection. You also avoid any abscesses, diseases, or issues with the mini dental implants. 

It would be best if you brushed your mini implants as they were your regular teeth. You will need to use a water pick to remove food particles and a mouthwash.
