As the name suggests, lower suction dentures rely on suction to stay in place. They don’t require any messy adhesives or costly dental implants! A precise and detailed impression allows for a strong seal and firm suction to secure your dentures in place for increased confidence with speaking, eating, and smiling.
Suction dentures are able to stay securely in place due to the creation of a vacuum between the gums and the dentures. This can only be done with an incredibly detailed impression of your gums so that the dentures fit perfectly to the natural shape of your jaw.
Roughly ~80% of all denture patients are eligible for Lower Suction dentures. One of the only things that would disqualify a patient for getting Suction dentures is if they’ve recently had teeth extracted from their lower jaw. Recent extractions can cause gum wounds to open up, bleed, and can lead to infection. Once the gums have healed from extraction, you will then become eligible for Lower Suction dentures.
With proper attention to denture care and good oral hygiene habits, a Lower Suction denture will typically last between 7-10 years. Keep in mind that this range can vary significantly from one patient to the next based on the quality of their dentures, their habits, and their attention to properly maintaining their dentures.
Compared to most other forms of dentures, Lower Suction dentures are well-known to be one of the most comfortable types of dentures. They don’t require adhesives and the suction force provides a secure and natural feel. It will take some adjustment at first, but once acclimated, your Suction dentures will look and feel just like your natural teeth.
Lower Suction dentures that are created by an experienced denturist can provide a whole host of benefits, including:
Like standard dentures, lower suction dentures can be adjusted or relined as needed. The fit of the dentures can change as a result of changes in the bone or tissue composition of the mouth.
Dentists can modify the denture’s interior surface using relining processes to guarantee a secure and pleasant fit. In addition, modifications can be necessary to relieve any pain, pressure areas, or functional problems with the dentures. It’s essential to schedule routine check-ups with a dentist to assess how well lower suction dentures fit and make any required adjustments for maximum comfort and functionality.
Lower suction dentures may not require much more maintenance than standard dentures, but there are a few things to keep in mind to extend their life and improve their functionality. It’s critical to adhere to the dentist’s care recommendations, which include the right ways to store and clean.
Lower suction dentures last longer when regular oral hygiene procedures are followed, such as washing the dentures every day and keeping your teeth healthy. It’s also important to avoid practices that can harm dentures, like chewing on hard items or using abrasive cleaning products. Regular dental check-ups guarantee that the dentures are in good shape and allow for timely correction of any issues that may arise.
