Lower Suction Denture Q & A

"If your dentures are not becoming to you, you should be coming to us."
Lower dentures don’t have to “float” anymore!

Dr. Jiro Abe in Japan has developed a revolutionary new technique to achieve suction in lower denture! Up until now we all believed and were taught in dental school that suction on lower dentures was impossible and the only way to keep them stable was with costly implants. In 2018, Dr. Cortes traveled abroad to get his certification in Lower Suction Denture technique. When Dr.Cortes first learned about this technique, he was immediately excited because this is a revolutionary technique and will not only benefit denture wearers but will improve their lives.

How is this done?

  • Revolutionary new impression technique using slow setting, high definition material to capture muscles of cheek and tongue
  • New teeth positioning to work in harmony with your muscle
  • High definition impression materials
  • Special bio-functional teeth
    Lower distortion acrylic injection machine to gain superior fit
  • Adjustable articulator to simulate your jaw movements
  • Special contouring and shaping of the denture to work in harmony with your muscle movements when chewing and speaking while in function

Will it work for me?

  • 80% of patients are candidates for our lower suction dentures in mira mesa.
  • An exam will be performed in a consultation to see if you’re a candidate, but the level of suction will be known after the final impression is taken. Even if you’re not a candidate for lower suction dentures you will have a better fit. Food will not be as likely to get underneath your denture.

These dentures are incredibly more biocompatible than conventional dentures. Dentures san diego still offer conventional dentures for those that need a more affordable option.
