How to take care of your mini implant Snap in Dentures?

Many people have asked us the specifics about our mini implant Snap in Dentures, specially when it comes to cleaning them and other oral hygiene habits to have when having them. Our Snap in Dentures are not a permanent set of teeth like for example the All on 4 or All on 6 implant procedure where the denture is screwed directly over implants. Snap in Dentures use mini implants as anchorage by snap into the o-rings adapted on the denture. This means that when you eat and drink some tiny food particles might get below the denture.
