Dentures have a bad reputation that is, to a great extent, well-earned. Most dentures, especially economy dentures, are not properly fitted, which means they look unattractive, feel uncomfortable, and function poorly. If you are unhappy with your current dentures or purchasing your first set, you should consider The Denture Fountain of Youth®. FOY Dentures® are made of quality materials and use neuromuscular dentistry to ensure the best possible appearance, comfort, and function.
This page explains how The Denture Fountain of Youth® works in general. To find out how they will work for you, please call (803) 781-9090 or email Smile Columbia Dentistry today to schedule a consultation at our Columbia, South Carolina office.
Problems with Traditional Dentures
Most people with traditional dentures are unhappy with them because they:
Slip during talking or eating
Make it hard to eat
Require denture adhesive
This reduces the quality of life for a denture wearer. Denture wearers often do not feel comfortable smiling, talking, or eating in public. Traditional dentures can also affect your health. Poorly fitting dentures can make it hard to eat a balanced diet of nutritious foods, and denture adhesive can be toxic if used in large quantities.
What Makes The Denture Fountain of Youth® Different
The Denture Fountain of Youth® is constructed with the best materials available. They are also fitted with a superior understanding of how the jaw, teeth, and muscles work together. This understanding comes from more than 30 years of neuromuscular dentistry research. Neuromuscular dentistry is a type of dentistry that focuses specifically on how the hard and soft tissues of the mouth work together, and how to achieve their optimal function.
We will measure the optimal position of your jaw, and measure the action of your muscles to find the right fit for your dentures that enhances the comfort of your jaw and achieves maximum stability.
How Do They Work?
The position of maximum comfort for your jaw also corresponds to the position of maximum support for your face. When your facial tissues developed, you had a full mouth of long, strong teeth. As your teeth wore down and were eventually lost, it caused your facial tissues to sink and collapse in the area between your nose and chin.
The Denture Fountain of Youth® restores the proper proportions to your face, eliminating the “sunken” appearance common to denture wearers. They also reduce the appearance of jowls, facial folds, and sagging skin.
