Dentures are probably the least popular procedure in dentistry. No one is happy to get dentures. Even those that think they are happy to be getting rid of troublesome natural teeth quickly learn that traditional dentures don’t offer a good replacement. Honestly, most dentists don’t like dentures, either, because they don’t provide the high quality treatment we want to deliver to our patients.
But there are dentures that you can actually be happy with. We know we’re happy with FOY ® Dentures because, finally, there are dentures that allow us to give our denture patients the same high quality care we give to our cosmetic dentistry patients. Here’s why we think you’ll be happy with them, too.
Neuromuscular Dentistry Gives You the Best Fit
The traditional denture fitting process is unscientific, and often unreliable. But the FOY ® Dentures fitting process uses neuromuscular dentistry to ensure a proper fit. Neuromuscular dentistry is a scientific approach to the bite, used to treat TMJ and other bite problems. It allows us to reliably and predictably see how dentures are fitting in with your bite, including your jaw joints, jaw muscles, bones, and gums.
Most dentures are just fitted to your gums or maybe your gums and your mouth, but not to the entire jaw system, which can not only make them uncomfortable, it can lead to painful pressure points that can speed the loss of bone under the dentures. You might even develop headaches, jaw pain, neck pain, and other TMJ symptoms.
With FOY ® Dentures, you get comfortable, balanced dentures that actually fit your bite.
The Best Materials for a Very Natural Appearance
Cheap dentures are made with plastic teeth. Not only is this inefficient for chewing (ever try cutting a steak with a plastic knife at a picnic–plastic dentures can be far worse), but it’s also bad for the appearance of teeth. Plastic teeth just don’t look like natural teeth. And they only get worse, because white plastic teeth are highly vulnerable to staining, so they tend to discolor quickly.
FOY ® Dentures are made with advanced ceramic teeth. These teeth are made with materials very similar to porcelain veneers, and many people find with FOY ® Dentures they have the best smile of their lives.
And the base of FOY ® Dentures is also highly attractive. Many dentures have a low density flat acrylic base. This allows denture teeth to show through the gums, making it look like you have unhealthy gums. The base is also susceptible to staining. FOY ® Dentures are made with a dense, layered acrylic that has the same luster and depth as natural gum tissue. There are even small inclusions that replicate blood vessels in the base. Your teeth won’t show through the base, and the dentures are resistant to staining.
Look Years Younger
Why are FOY ® Dentures also called the Denture Fountain of Youth? It’s because the precise neuromuscular dentistry fitting process yields another benefit. It allows us to restore your youthful proportions, replacing all the volume lost in the lower third of your face. With your face restored to its youthful proportions, you’ll see many signs of facial aging disappear.
Many of the signs of facial aging you may be unhappy with are the result of shrinking teeth and bones in the jaw. Wrinkles around the mouth, such as lipstick lines, nasolabial folds, the line between the lips and chin, and lines at the corners of your mouth are all related to this shrinking support. Thin lips, jowls, and turkey neck are all worsened by the loss of volume in the lower part of the face.
But with FOY ® Dentures, we restore that lost volume so you will see a dramatic reduction in the signs related to facial aging.
Even Better Results with Dental Implants
FOY ® Dentures will give good results on their own, but if you’re really looking for the best results from your dentures, you want to combine them with dental implants. Dental implants anchor your dentures so they are fully fixed in place and you can maximize the benefits of your healthy bite. And because dental implants help preserve your jawbone, you get to lock in that oustanding fit for long-term comfort and efficiency.
