Neuromuscular dentures are the most customized and deliver the best comfort, fit, function, and aesthetics. One significant benefit is that they are more comfortable and appear more natural than traditional full mouth tooth replacements because of their unique design.
Neuromuscular dentures are popular because they help enhance facial appearance by supporting facial muscles. Supported facial muscles help support our face’s skin, keeping it tight and wrinkle-free, contributing to a younger appearance. When you remove them, your face will not shrink, and your muscles will remain in place.
Neuromuscular or physiologic dentures differ from conventional replacement sets of teeth because they’re created with your whole body in mind. Neuromuscular dentists, like Dr. Adam Hahn, focus on how the face and neck’s teeth, jaw, muscles, nerves, and soft tissues work together.
Neuromuscular dentures do much more than simply replace missing teeth; they fit in your mouth based on the structure of your jaw, face and neck muscles, and teeth. The most significant benefit over regular dentures is that they gently move your jaw into an optimal position to help create a proper bite, allowing your jaw to relax.
With neuromuscular dentures, the jaw is in its ideal place for chewing and speaking; achieving the proper bite helps to correct or prevent jaw problems like Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ/TMD).
