How do they compare to traditional dentures?
Traditional dentures are fitted to the shape of the mouth by fitting to the natural contouring. This is why impressions are taken so that a denture can be built specifically for you.
However, if you have been without natural teeth for a while, the bone that once supported your natural teeth begins to shrink away. This causes the shape of your mouth to become flatter. In these cases, there is very little for your denture to grip onto which means it can slip or drop out of place. This can leave people needing to use a denture fixative to keep the denture in place.
Suction Cup Dentures are secured by their suction mechanism holding onto the surfaces in the mouth when placed. This removes the need for a fixative and leaves the wearer feeling more confident and comfortable.
