What are Suction Dentures (SEMCD)?

The SEMCD (Suction Effective Mandibular Complete Dentures) or Lower Suction Dentures is new, revolutionary technique that was developed by Dr. Jiro Abe in Japan and has been changing lives of clients who are tired of dealing with loose, uncomfortable dentures. With over an 80% success rate SEMCD becomes the treatment of choice for denture wearers who are looking to improve their smile and quality of life.

How do Suction Dentures Work?

A Suction denture is built on taking a unique, detailed impression of your gums. The dentures form to your lower jaw, mirroring every natural shape, creating a strong seal with a firm suction that holds the denture in place, regardless of what a person may be doing with their mouth. With the use of latest materials and techniques these dentures are meticulously designed to provide you with the most natural appearance and function without the need for surgical procedures like implants, and do not require adhesives, even for clients with extremely low gums.

Find out if you are a candidate for Suction dentures by booking your complimentary, no-obligation consultation with our Denturist Yevgeniy Sorokatyy. He has over 10 years of experience and is the first certified SEMCD practitioner in the Ottawa area. He will be happy to go over your treatment plan, explain the process and time-line in creating your new smile!

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do lower suction dentures last?

Like other kinds of more traditional dentures, suction dentures do not last forever. Changes in your gums and jaw typically change the way your dentures fit. You will need to get your suction dentures relined every 1 to 3 years or more depending on your personal case. Eventually, as with all other dentures, your lower suction dentures will have to be replaced every 7 to 10 years.

Can you remove lower suction dentures?

One of the many advantages of lower suction dentures is that they can be put on and removed at the wearer’s convenience. While they stay firmly in place and don’t come out accidentally, many patients periodically remove their dentures for moments of comfort and relaxation. The ability to remove lower suction dentures also means they can be easily cleaned at your convenience.

How are lower suction dentures fitted?

The impression process for lower suction dentures is slightly different than for traditional dentures. During the impression process, the denturist will have the patient make specific sounds and movements while the impression material is in their mouth. This is done so that the impression material captures movements needed to keep them in place. After the impression process, the denturist creates the dentures for the patient. Once it is ready, all you have to do is start wearing them and enjoy your new set of teeth!

What is the main advantage of lower suction dentures?

Lower suction dentures are ideal for those who wear dentures and have issues with them lifting or floating, as well as those suffering with bone loss in the lower jaw. Lower suction dentures use suction to keep the dentures comfortably and reliably in place, allowing for a much more pleasant denture experience. Suction dentures are more affordable than other alternatives such as implant dentures while still giving great results.
