People who wear traditional dentures understand that they need to deal with certain things. Sometimes, they appear to have hollow or gaunt cheeks due to bone atrophy caused by tooth loss. Sunken-in cheeks can make you appear older than you actually are. Fortunately, there is an innovative option that is helping people achieve a younger look.
Fountain of Youth (FOY®) dentures offer a great alternative to traditional dentures. They do this by strategically plumping out your cheeks and facial features to give you a more youthful appearance.
Before exploring the advantages of these dentures, it is important to know how they work. Traditional dentures fit well if your mouth is not moving. However, to function properly, your mouth needs to move freely. FOY treatment option uses state-of-the-art neuromuscular dentistry to design dentures. These prostheses properly accommodate the mouth’s orofacial muscles, nerves, and soft tissue.
These dentures allow users to speak, eat, and chew food comfortably. In terms of aesthetics, these dentures tend to achieve amazing results. They look so natural that few people would believe that they are not the real thing. In addition to making you look younger, they are more comfortable and functional than traditional dentures.
Dental technicians cast regular dentures from a single dental impression. Afterward, the dentist adjusts the prosthesis to fit his or her patient better, based on facial muscles and soft tissue movements. When it comes to the FOY dentures, there is no guesswork in the fabrication process.
Digital diagnostic imaging captures the patient’s dental arches. It shows how his or her mouth moves when talking, smiling, and chewing. Therefore, the patient gets fully personalized dentures that accommodate his or her mouth movements for a perfect fit.
Bone atrophy will take place over time if your jaw no longer has teeth roots. Therefore, people who have traditional dentures take them for readjustment every so often. These readjustments aim to keep pace with the gradual changes in the underlying jawbone.
Fabrication of traditional dentures is not as precise as that of FOY dentures. Therefore, they exert uneven pressure on the jawbone and gums. On the other hand, these dentures have an evenly distributed bite force. This is important because it stalls bone degeneration. Also, due to their superior fit, they are more comfortable than traditional dentures.
Many people undergo dermal filler injections and plastic surgery to reduce signs of aging. Instead of spending most of your hard-earned cash on cosmetic surgery, consider what FOY dentures can do for you.
Due to their comfortable and precise fit, the hollowed and sunken areas of your face will fill in once more. This will result in a more youthful, smoother look. These dentures can also help create a redefined and stronger jawline, smoother cheeks, and fuller lips. They can also minimize the appearance of turkey neck, wrinkles, jowls, and folds.
