Revolutionary denture security technique keeps Parksville Denture clients smiling

BPS Lower Suction Dentures offer unprecedented comfort and security

Developed by Dr. Jiro Abe of Japan, BPS Lower Suction Dentures offer a new window of opportunity for patients suffering from a loose lower denture.

“Since being certified with this technique, we’ve had so many successful stories,” notes Jasmine Cherry, registered denturist and owner of Parksville Denture Clinic, Parksville’s only certified lower suction clinic. “Many of our patients have gone home on their first day with their Lower Suction Dentures celebrating with a steak and corn on the cob – food they never thought they’d eat again.”

Like with all new techniques, there are always frequently asked questions:

Q. What is the difference between conventional and Lower Suction Dentures?

By using new functional impression techniques, we are able to create a seal around the border of your lower denture. This suction cup effect between the denture and tissues provides suction, security and fit.

Q. What are the benefits of Lower Suction Dentures?

An effective Lower Suction Denture gives patients the ability to chew, laugh and function like never before, giving them the confidence to be among their friends and family without anyone knowing they have dentures.

Q. How often will my Lower Suction Dentures need to be replaced?

Just like conventional dentures, a typical denture will last five to seven years. The tissue and underlying bone in the mouth are continually changing. Over time your dentures may need to be adjusted, relined or replaced to maintain a good fit.

Q. How often should I have my dentures checked?

It’s important for your general oral health to have a yearly check-up to monitor any changes with the fit of your dentures or health of your gums. Physical changes with the supporting bone in your mouth, use of certain medications or weight loss can all affect the fit of your dentures.

Q. Should I take my Lower Suction Dentures out at night?

Yes, it’s recommended you remove your dentures at night. This allows the tissues to rejuvenate and relax, ready for a new day of eating, smiling and laughing.

Q. What happens if I don’t replace my dentures regularly?

Worn out dentures can compromise the health of the denture wearer. Possible effects of ill-fitting dentures include: headaches, neck and joint pain, difficulty chewing, poor digestion and dietary problems, sunken face, over-closing of the jaw, irritated and soft gums, as well as premature bone loss.
