Snap-On Dentures vs. All-On-4 Implants: Which One is Better?

Dental implant therapy is a great option when you need to replace missing teeth. 

You can choose between Snap-On Dentures or All-On-4 implants, meaning you can choose between a removable option and a permanent one. 


Let’s find out the differences below:

All-On-4 Dental Implants

All-On-4 dental implants work as a type of implant-supported denture that uses only four implants to replace a full arch of lost teeth. This is an innovative, effective, and permanent procedure.

Snap-On Dentures

Snap-On dentures consist of 2-6 implants placed in the patient’s mouth and a denture that simply snaps on the implants. These are a more secure type of implants that clip in place, but the patient will need to remove and clean them after bedtime like they would with a traditional denture.




Snap-On dentures have a specialized attachment system that snaps into place and can be removed for cleaning, unlike traditional dentures.

Immediate Results.

Easy to remove: they snap on and off.

Stability of Teeth Implants.

Secure: the dentures would not snap off on themselves.

Permanent and lifetime solution to missing teeth.

Preserves jawbone.

The Procedure is Quick.

Easy to clean.

Easy Maintenance.


Preserves Face and Jaw Structure.

Snap-On dentures and All-On-4 dental implants provide the patient’s jaw with strength and stability to prevent bone loss, imply no food restrictions after healing, and the patient’s smile will look natural.
Both options are valid to replace the patient’s missing teeth as quickly as possible. However, All-on-Four presents more advantages and since they are permanent, this leads to more comfort, whereas snap-On dentures will need to be removed daily for cleaning.
