Dr. Jiro Abe in Japan has developed a revolutionary new technique to achieve suction in lower denture! Up until now we all believed and were taught in dental school that suction on lower dentures was impossible and the only way to keep them stable was with costly implants.
In 2018, Dr. Cortes traveled abroad to get his certification in Lower Suction Denture technique. When Dr.Cortes first learned about this technique, he was immediately excited because this is a revolutionary technique and will not only benefit denture wearers but will improve their lives.
These dentures are incredibly more biocompatible than conventional dentures. We still offer conventional dentures for those that need a more affordable option.
