How do the removable implant dentures work?
Having removable implant dentures placed is a step by step process and can take some time. First, the set of implants (with the male side of the snap) are placed in the bone and will heal and adhere to the surrounding bone over a 3-4 month period. After the implants have fully healed, dentures will be made (with the receiving, or female, part of the snap). These dentures will be made to your specifications and shade that you and your doctor discuss. These dentures can be removed at home for cleaning by the patient and without assistance of your dentist.
