When you think about dentures, the first thing that may come to mind is the idea of them being uncomfortable and painful due to poor fitting. But what if we told you now we have dentures that fit perfectly and make you look younger — would you try them? It sounds like a dream, but we can make it a reality. Santa Rosa Dentistry and Implant Center in Santa Rosa, California, offers Fountain of Youth Dentures (FOY) that provide superior benefits over conventional dentures. Our high-quality facelift dentures make you forget you are wearing dentures — they fit snugly, look great, and make you look younger.
Have you had traditional dentures before? You must be familiar with the process. The dentist begins by making impressions of your mouth. Then, he sends the images to a dental lab to fabricate your custom-made dentures. This sounds like a foolproof plan, but achieving a good fit isn’t simple.
You engage different muscles as you use your mouth to speak, chew, talk, and yawn. And since your mouth stays still when taking impressions for traditional dentures, your appliances don’t provide enough room for relaxation and contraction.
That’s not all. Your traditional dentures don’t fare well with jaw bone loss. When you lose teeth, your jawbone lacks sufficient stimulation for regeneration. As a result, your bone begins diminishing, affecting your overall appearance. Dentures that rest on your gums do little to stop bone atrophy.
FOY dentures aren’t designed using a single mouth impression. We design your dentures to balance pressure between the gums and jawbone to provide a comfortable fit.
The natural fit allows your jaw muscles to move freely for a natural, healthy bite. Besides, these dentures support your facial muscles — just like your regular teeth — to give you a natural, youthful look — your facelift never looks like surgery!
Additionally, FOY dentures are created using high-grade materials for durability and comfort. Sometimes, we even add implants to strengthen your bite. Implant FOY dentures compensate for height loss through bone degeneration and stimulate your jawbone to prevent further bone resorption.
As you age, your teeth wear down. Your face loses its tautness, and your bone breaks over time. Conventional dentures are only designed to replace your teeth. On the other hand, FOY dentures reestablish your teeth’ height and fill out facial features to reduce wrinkles for a more youthful appearance. FOY dentures literally make you look younger than your age.
The other benefits of FOY dentures include the following:
Wouldn’t you want comfortable dentures that function like natural teeth and make you look younger? We bet you do. Ready to get started?
