Those who wear dentures face certain specific changes to their appearance over time. It seems that, with traditional dentures, healthy jaw bone diminishes over time. Since it is the bone in the jaw that provides support for dentures, the reduction of this feature has an enormous impact on how the denture wearer looks. The result is a sunken-in appearance that actually causes more wrinkles to develop on the face, causing the patient to look older than he or she really is.
You want to feel great about your smile, even when you wear dentures. While traditional dentures fill a necessary role, it has been shown that they do not fully support the lips and facial structure in such a way as to prevent changes in appearance. When teeth are properly shaped, as your natural teeth are, the lips are rolled out and the height of your face is maintained. When dentures are worn, the natural tooth structure is changed and the support which lips and facial muscles have relied upon for all these years is suddenly gone.
Advances in medical cosmetics have given denture wearers hope for a fuller facial appearance; but the truth is that these treatments are costly and provide only temporary results. What's more, because treatments like Botox or dermal fillers are applied to the skin, they do nothing to correct the source of the problem; which is ill-fitting dentures.
With Fountain Of Youth Dentures in Worcester, Dr. Levenson approaches the treatment from a neuromuscular standpoint. Only a handful of dentists around the nation have received the training needed to turn dentures into a whole new world. By using this approach, Dr. Levenson finds the position of optimum muscle relaxation and function before fitting you for your customized dentures. Using advanced technology, facial muscles are placed into a state of natural relaxation before impressions are taken for dentures. This single step alone results in better fitting dentures and a greater degree of comfort and confidence when eating, speaking, laughing or smiling.
To properly fit Fountain Of Youth Dentures, impressions are also taken of your ideal bite position in addition to standard impressions during your relaxed state. With this dual-faceted approach, dentures will look better, fit better, and take years off your appearance without a single injection or stitch! Consult with Dr. Levenson for further information on Fountain Of Youth Dentures in Worcester.
