California is the most populous state in the country, accounting for nearly 12% of the US population. It is also a very diverse state, with some of the most densely populated metropolises in the country as well as some sparsely populated agricultural and desert areas. Some of the population is very wealthy, while some less so. In the Los Angeles and Hollywood area, the state has one of America’s major cultural centers and most recognizable industries both domestically and abroad: film. And further north in Silicon Valley, the state spearheads the country’s technological industry. But in its agricultural areas, California also supplies some of the country’s best agricultural products, including its wines.
Although California is a relatively young state, with only about 12% of its population over the age of 65, it is, like the rest of the country, growing older, which, almost inevitably means having dentures. To meet this demand in California, as across the country, economy denture dentists have popped up promising dentures at a low price.
Unfortunately, the quality of these economy dentures is often poor, causing problems such as discomfort, poor fit, tendency to slip, and difficulty talking and eating. People who wear these economy dentures also suffer from an unattractive appearance caused by their dentures. These dentures don’t properly support the face, resulting in what many people describe as “denture face.” In California, home to some of the world’s most beautiful people, this appearance is especially unacceptable.
Fortunately, there is a better way: FOY™ Dentures overcome the limitations of economy and traditional dentures to give people attractive, functional dentures.
California Denture Dentists with a Better Perspective
Denture dentists learn a different way of doing dentures when they learn to do FOY™ Dentures. The starting point is often to look at a person’s traditional dentures or economy dentures to learn how dentures should not be made. These old style dentures are designed to fit your mouth as a static system, which is often the cause of fit problems.
Our California denture dentists look at the mouth as a dynamic system which has to be fitted dynamically. Dentures must be designed to move or else they will be unable to perform adequately in all the dynamic moving tasks you use them for. This is not just the obvious chewing, smiling, and talking, but also the important muscular aid of helping to balance your head during tasks as various as swallowing and walking.
Because of this different perspective on your dentures, FOY™ Dentures offer many benefits, such as:
- Younger appearance with reduced facial folds, jowls, and excess skin in the chin and neck
- Better fit
- No pinch points that cause pain when you eat
- Better chewing and talking
- More support for the face
- Reduced risk of jawbone loss
What gives California denture dentists these better results? A scientific view of designing dentures that is based on the discipline of neuromuscular dentistry.
The Neuromuscular Dentistry Difference
The word dentist comes from the French word for teeth. Dentists are called dentists because they deal with teeth, but the proper function of your mouth depends on a lot more things than teeth, and neuromuscular dentists strive to take all of these other elements—bones, muscles, nerves, and other tissues—into account.
This is vitally important in the creation of dentures, because dentures have to fit into this system and work in harmony with all these other elements. If they don’t, they won’t work properly. With FOY™ Dentures, your California denture dentist takes all of these elements into account to give you a better fitting and better functioning denture.
The rejuvenating effects of FOY™ Dentures come from this difference, too. Our teeth, skin, and muscles all developed together, so if your dentures aren’t made to properly fit in with these other elements, they won’t create the proper proportions for your face, which leads to a sunken face, additional folds, hanging skin, and other problems that can make you look older.
