When it comes to all the different options with dentures, implant retained dentures are considered the best option. Implant retained dentures provide a mechanical retention, where the stability of conventional dentures usually just sit on top of the gums, relying on suction if it can be achieved. Though dental implants are the best option the price of implant dentures can be quite costly for the average consumer. Aside from the cost, not everyone is comfortable with the surgical dental approach as well. So if dental implants are not for you, what is the alternative option to implant retained dentures that can provide more stability than the conventional denture?
Currently, conventional dentures are still what many people consider their only option if not Implant retained dentures. The main limitations to conventional dentures are the lack of stability and suction in the lower denture. This is usually why people invest in implant retained dentures for the lower jaw opposing a conventional upper denture first when transitioning to implants, as the upper denture is significantly more stable and easier to achieve suction retention then the lower denture. The inevitable struggles of a conventional Lower denture include and are not limited to:
- Floating of the denture
- Lifting during function and speech
- Abundance of food collecting under denture
In choosing the option of conventional dentures the upper denture are not the problem, the struggle mainly lies in the lower dentures with lack of stability and suction. So what is the alternative to Implant dentures but better than conventional dentures?
The alternative option is a revolutionary new technique introduced from Japan developed by Dr. Jiro Abe called “Mandibular Suction-Effective Denture”. This option provides a non-invasive approach that is the alternative to costly surgical implant dentures. This option also provides a lower denture that is significantly more stable with suction that can match the upper denture, compared to the conventional denture approach.
