Suction Dentures VS Conventional Dentures
So how is SEMCD Suction Dentures different from (conventional) complete dentures?
One word to best describe the difference is naturalism. Prior to SEMCD Suction Dentures, complete dentures are made through the manipulation of the cheeks and lips by the clinician to obtain the impression. The shape of the denture base and its borders are dependent on the clinician. As a result, the denture base is flat and smooth. Because of the artificial capture, the denture sits and compresses the tissues in the mouth which could later cause many reoccurring sore spots.
With SEMCD Suction Dentures, the impression is taken with patient’s help. The patient goes through a series of motions and movements to define the borders and shape of the denture base. This type of denture base represents the inside of your mouth more realistically. It is a truer representation of your gums and jaws. The denture base does not compress and distort the tissues in the mouth abnormally reducing the number of sore spots developing.
Suction dentures tend to be shorter, more gnarly looking but a lot less bulky in most areas. Suction dentures also tend to be thicker near the tongue area and have wings at the back. These all help with the suction of the dentures.
