Lower Suction Dentures

SUCTION EFFECTIVE MANDIBULAR COMPLETE DENTURES, or SEMCD is a new technique for giving the best, custom fitted denture.

Also known as Lower Suction Dentures or Bio-functional Dentures.

SEMCD Certified Clinician Lower Suction Denture

Suction is attained in the lower denture in 80% of the cases. Even in the remaining 20%, SEMCD is the most stable, retentive denture system. It’s a new technique that can attain suction in both upper and lower dentures.

How does it work? It uses tissues to create a seal all the way around the denture. There is no surgery involved! We will guide you through the impression process, using mouth movements in order to achieve an accurate custom fit.

Suction is not contingent on the amount of bone but relies more on the surrounding tissues. Eight out of ten patients can attain suction on the lower denture. Even if suction is not achieved, Suction Effective Dentures are 100% more stable than the conventional type.

SEMCD can also be used in conjunction with implant retained dentures to give superior fit and function, it will create a food safe seal all the way around the denture preventing food from getting underneath, giving ultimate stability and retention.

Will it work for me? 80% of patients are candidates for our lower suction dentures. An exam will be performed in a free 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.

Services

Dental Implant

For the average patient, standard dentures fit comfortably and will provide proper function. They are designed using basic tooth shades, shapes and standard quality materials.

Some denture patients with oral tissues that have resorbed, who have an unusual bite, or may need a personalized denture that utilizes premium materials will benefit from precision dentures. Premium personalized dentures combine comfort, fit, esthetics, and function to create the most natural smile and provide optimum function.

Your Denturist will use specialized techniques to record the tissues of your mouth, the specific jaw movements you make, and all of the anatomical information that might affect the fit and function of your new dentures. This is confirmed during a try-in session. Your Denturist will work with you to try to restore the natural contour of your lips and facial muscles to give you a natural smile!

Before and After

Immediate, or transitional dentures are often required to restore esthetics and function immediately after teeth are extracted. Immediate dentures may replace one tooth or full arch, depending on the individual case, this allows the patient not to be without teeth.

The procedure involves taking impressions of your natural teeth while they are still present, this allows Denturist to create a denture that is modeled from your natural teeth, as well as make any necessary modification according to patient’s needs or requests. The immediate denture is inserted in the mouth right after extractions are performed by the dentist. The advantage of this technique is that the patient avoids having to live without teeth while healing process takes place.

Since your Denturist is unable to try the denture in your mouth for fit prior to extracting your teeth certain esthetic compromises may be necessary. This usually does not present any significant problems, and the results are normally quite good. But please note: It is very important that you carefully follow the postoperative instructions of your Denturist or Oral Surgeon.

Denture adjustments will be required as healing occurs. As oral tissues will heal and change, we recommend you come in for a follow-up appointment to check on the fit, make necessary adjustments and to make sure that there are no signs of infection present in the mouth following the extractions. A temporary liner, or tissue conditioner may be placed in the denture during the next few months, this is due to the bone resorption, which may cause the denture to become loose. The rate of bone resorption will decrease with time — it is a natural occurrence, and is to be expected. After the healing process is complete, either a new permanent full denture will be fabricated, or your denture will require to be relined or rebased to restore proper fit.

Partial Dentures

They are customized to a patient’s specific requirements. Removable partial dentures are usually made to replace one or more teeth. Removable partial dentures restore a person’s natural appearance and greatly improve the ability to chew.

The number of remaining teeth as well as position and stability of the adjacent teeth are some of the factors that determine the style or type of partial denture that will be best suited for you.

The many benefits of partials

Your self-confidence and quality of life can be affected severely when some of your teeth are missing. Often a good solution to missing teeth are partial dentures. They do not harm the remaining natural teeth and may prevent natural teeth from shifting or drifting into the space left by the loss of a tooth. Partial dentures help maintain the position of your natural teeth by providing additional support, improved function and esthetics.

Implant Overdentures

The preferred method for a single tooth replacement or full mouth restoration is dental implants. Dental implants are substitutes for teeth that form a stable foundation for permanent replacement of missing teeth, it can also provide stability and retention for complete and partial dentures.

With a 98% success rate and long clinical history, dental implants have proven themselves as the number one restorative treatment option. For a more stable and natural feel, in comparison to most types of dentures, implant retained dentures would be your answer.

Many patients who have chosen implant-supported dentures report that they are happy and comfortable for the first time. Implants integrate with bone to function as an anchor for your prosthesis and can help to preserve the bone, and provide stimulation that was previously provided by the natural tooth. This method also helps to maintain your facial structure integrity.

Benefits of dental implants:

  • Improved oral health, function, appearance and self-esteem
  • Increased denture comfort and stability
  • Significant reduction of sore spots caused by dentures
  • Bone loss reduction

With dental implants your mouth is restored to a natural state that allows superior long-term esthetics, enhancing the beauty of your natural smile and quality of your life.

Dental implants are the closest possible replacement for natural teeth and the best way to restore your smile. The cost of implants has become very affordable. Ask us how implant supported dentures can benefit you!

Types of Denture Supported Implants:

Implant-Retained, Gum Supported - With this treatment, the over-denture rests directly on your gums and is attached to implants placed into your upper and/or lower jaw. The over-denture, which is removable, is secured to your implants through attachments fixed into the denture.

Bar-Retained, Implant Supported - With this treatment, the over-denture is connected to attachments on a metal bar that is in turn connected to implants surgically placed into your upper and/or lower jaw. The over-denture, which is removable, is secured to the bar through attachments fixed into the denture.

Fixed, Implant Supported - With this treatment, the overdenture is secured directly to implants placed into your upper and/or lower jaw. The overdenture is only removable by a dentist. This option gives the closest resemblance to natural teeth and gums.

Rebase Reline & Repairs

Dentures do not always need to be replaced if they are broken, worn or ill-fitting. Often, properly performed repairs, rebase or reline may restore the appearance and fit of your existing dentures without you having to spend money on the new appliance.

REBASE

When the denture teeth have not worn out to the same degree as the denture base material, rebasing is usually done. The process of retrofitting dentures is done by replacing the acrylic denture base with new acrylic. This process provides a stable denture without replacing the denture teeth.

RELINES

Relining consists of adding new base material to the tissue side of a denture so that it fits properly. An impression will be taken of the inside of your existing denture ensuring that it properly forms to the tissue of your mouth. Relining affects only the fit of your denture. It does not change their appearance. These procedures are required when tissue changes occur due to:

  • Loss of weight
  • Loss of teeth
  • Loss of bone
  • Aging
  • Disease or illness
  • Some medications

REPAIRS

In most cases, Denturist will be able to repair an existing broken or cracked denture to its original state. Repairs may also be required when breakage or chipping of the denture teeth occurs, when one or more teeth need to be added to an existing denture (due to tooth extraction) or because of normal wear.
Most repairs can easily be completed in one day.

As proven technology, soft liners have been offered to patients for over twenty years. Over that time, the materials and technology have steadily improved. Permanent soft liners provide comfort and relief for individuals with:

  • Severely receded or flat gums that cannot tolerate the stress of regular dentures
  • Chronic soreness
  • Gums with prominent or sharp, bony areas
Recall & Recare

Updating both medical and dental history is an important step toward quality denture treatment. Your mouth experiences considerable changes over time such as tissue shrinkage and loss of underlying bone (resorption) on which your dentures rest. As your dentures do not change, but your mouth does, they may no longer fit as they once did. Timely made recall appointment may help you avoid the hassle of dealing with loose, or poorly functioning dentures that may affect your speech and appearance.

Having annual oral exams may also prevent or assist in the detection of oral cancer or other abnormal conditions. We will check for cracks, chips, scratches and worn or loose teeth.

  • Update your dental and medical history
  • Interim oral examination
  • Check the integrity of your denture
  • Check the esthetics, stability and bite
  • Based on your needs, discuss available options
  • Review oral hygiene procedures and denture care
  • Cleaning and polishing of your dentures, if required
Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening, a simple and effective process that lightens discoloration of enamel and dentin of your natural teeth. The system includes a peroxide-based gel retained in a custom-fitted appliance; this appliance is worn over your teeth and can be used during the day or while you sleep.

Most common causes of tooth discoloration are aging, staining substances (coffee, tea, colas and tobacco), trauma, tetracycline (antibiotic) staining, excessive fluoride and nerve degeneration. For intrinsic staining such as tetracycline staining or nerve degeneration different treatment may be required. Teeth will always be lighter than they were. Some patients may need periodic re-whitening for one or two nights, every four to six months.

Mouth Guards

Mouth guards should be the number one priority when it comes to sports equipment. They not only protect the teeth, but the lips, cheeks and tongue. We can provide you with a custom fitted, comfortable mouth guard that will protect your teeth, and will not hinder your athletic abilities.

When to wear a mouth guard:

Wear a mouth guard whenever you are involved in an activity with the risk of falls or contact with other players or equipment. We generally consider football and hockey as the most dangerous sports for teeth, but nearly half of sports-related mouth injuries occur in basketball, soccer, baseball, martial arts, skiing, snowboarding and many other sports.

Teeth Whitening

Also known as Mandibular Advancement Devises or MADs, anti-snoring appliances are custom made appliances that may help those patients suffering from sleep apnea. By advancing your lower jaw forward MADs increase air flow through air ways during sleep, providing patients with more restful quality sleep with comfort and absence of side effects.

Frequently Asked Questions

Denturist, Yevgeniy (Eugene) Sorokatyy answers your questions.

Q. WHO IS A DENTURIST?
A.
A Denturist is a specialist in the fabrication and fitting of dentures. Denturists provide the most cost- and time-effective service, laboratory work is done in-house on the premises and client care is done chairside in the clinic. Our expertise, meticulousness and professionalism make us the best possible choice to help you maximum the benefit from dental prosthetics technology.

Q. HOW LONG DO DENTURES LAST?
A.
The average life of a denture is typically between 5 and 10 years. Like natural teeth, dentures will wear and stain over time and although your teeth are gone, your mouth and gums will continue to change shape for the rest of your life. Due to this, your denture fit and function can be affected and will require a reline, rebase or need to be remade at some point. An annual recare appointment with us will help maximize the life of your dentures and avoid potential problems.

Q. MY DENTURES ARE BROKEN, CAN YOU REPAIR THEM?
A.
Yes, in most cases we do same day repairs and relines to most any type of damage to the dentures or advise you on what steps to take. Our onsite lab gives us the ability to make alterations, adjustments or repairs to your dentures in a timely matter, while you wait.

Q. DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?
A.
Yes, we offer direct billing to most insurance companies and we are happy to serve clients who are part of Veterans Affairs, NIHB, ODSP, Ontario Works and Essential Health. We send an electronic pre-determination to your insurance provider before we start on any work to ensure that you know how much will be covered.

Q. DO YOU OFFER FINANCING FOR THOSE ON FIXED INCOME?
A.
Many of our clients are on fixed incomes, to help these individuals we create a payment plan that will be acceptable to both of us, with 0% financing options. Our estimates include all fees associated with your treatment, with no hidden costs.

Q. HOW DO I CLEAN MY DENTURES?
A.
Clean the dentures thoroughly at night by using cold water, liquid soap and a firm denture brush. Hot water may be harmful and NEVER use toothpaste as it is abrasive and will cause scratching of the denture materials. Be sure to use a separate toothbrush and regular toothpaste to clean any natural teeth, tongue and gum surfaces. Overnight, take your dentures out and immerse them in a denture bath filled with water or denture cleaner.

Q. WHAT ARE DENTURE IMPLANTS AND WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
A.
Denturists are implant specialists, for teeth replacement the preferred method is denture supported implants. Surgical screws are implanted directly into the bone similar to how real teeth work. This provides the base for the dentures to connect with, which provides security and comfort when chewing or talking. The titanium in implants help stimulate bone growth, great news for denture wearers! The cost of these implants has become very affordable, consult our office to discover how dental implants will improve the quality of your life!
