People with dentures often have a certain sunken-faced look. That’s because traditional dentures make a couple of very big mistakes. Traditional dentures are often unstable (see below), so dentists try to make them more stable by putting the teeth directly over the ridge of bone in your jaw where your teeth used to be. The problem is that this ridge tends to move backward with jawbone resorption. This means that your teeth move backward from their natural position and give you a sunken appearance.
Most dentures are also not made tall enough to replace the full height of your natural teeth. Instead, they are too short, which means that you have excess skin and cheek tissue around the mouth area that folds in and increases the sunken appearance.
Because FOY® Dentures have improved stability and better fit, they can put the teeth further out in a more natural position, which eliminates most of the sunken look. And because FOY® Dentures are made tall enough to match your youthful teeth dimensions, you also have less of a sunken appearance.
It’s a complaint we hear all the time: I hate the way my dentures fit. Traditional dentures often fit very poorly, especially on the bottom.
FOY® Dentures are made with a different approach that improves their fit. They are designed using neuromuscular dentistry principles that take into account the shape and movement of your jaw muscles so these muscles can help give the denture improved fit, which means not only are they more stable, but they’re more comfortable as well.
Another complaint we hear all the time is that people are unhappy with all the foods they can no longer eat with their dentures.
But with the improved stability of FOY® Dentures people are happy to see how much more they can eat than they could with their other dentures. We get many thank-you notes from people who are happy to be able to eat a full range of food again with their dentures.
