A New Zealand based company, Biomedics NZ Limited reports that it has obtained FDA approval for its Ultra Suction™, complete denture stabilizer system.
Biomedics NZ reports that Ultra Suction™ system comprises a tiny unidirectional device that is imbedded into a denture plate. As the denture wearer bites firmly, the air trapped between the gum and the denture is expelled through the device, via two air passages. The lower pressure obtained beneath the denture tends to exert a pull and helps secure the denture against the gum. Properly fitted dentures can increase wearing comfort, the ability to chew and therefore impact on the overall health of the patient.
Consider reading the original post on Ultra Suction™, as it contains some valuable comments from Mony Paz, M.D., the inventor of the device.
