As an option to cope with missing teeth, dentures don’t have the esteem of dental implants, and their reputation has suffered due to older designs, which were often ill-fitting, prone to falling out, and highly visible.
Modern dentures, however, have much to recommend them in regards to fit, function and appearance. At Sydney’s My Hills Dentist, our dentures options include The Denture Fountain of Youth®, which offers outstanding appearance and performance.
Look Great, Feel Better
Dentures fit over the gums in the spaces between missing teeth. Some dentures may be held firm with clasps attached to surrounding natural teeth. This often results in false teeth that provide minimal function, have limited life spans, and are outwardly noticeable.
FOY Dentures™ are created to fit your unique jaw structure and work with the natural motion of your mouth. Your denture dentist will custom make them to resemble and perform like natural teeth, and mesh seamlessly with your smile.
Can Dentures Make You Look Younger?
With tooth loss comes the deterioration of the jaw bone. Eventually, this leads to diminished muscle tone and sagging skin around the mouth and jaw. The result is jowls, hanging neck skin, and wrinkles around the mouth, making you appear older than you are.
FOY Dentures™ can be implant-supported. They attach to implants secured in your jawbone similar to the roots of healthy teeth. Implants anchor the denture firmly in place. The jaw bone naturally regrows around the implants, which prevents further bone loss.
FOY Dentures™ are positioned more like natural teeth, which further allow them to work more like natural teeth. This also helps support facial muscles and other tissue, and preserves skin tone. Many patients with FOY Dentures™ say the dentures look natural and make them appear years younger.
No Worries, No Discomfort
Implants allow FOY Dentures™ to distribute bite force more uniformly than standard dentures. They also hold the dentures snugly in place so you can chew and speak normally without worrying that your dentures will slip or fall out.
Traditional dentures often don’t fit well initially, then grow worse with wear. Dentures that are loose, poorly fitted or made of inferior materials can irritate your gums and the inside of your mouth; they can also affect your ability to eat and speak properly.
Dentures shouldn’t be painful, and FOY Dentures™ are carefully crafted to fit every aspect of your bite structure and mouth to eliminate pinching or gaps. This exceptional fit and the use of high-quality, biocompatible materials also makes FOY Dentures™ a durable choice; the dental implants can last for life.
