One of the best benefits of the Denture Fountain of Youth® is that “Dentures Don’t Have to Look Like Dentures Anymore!®.” This is a big relief to many people who have hated the fake appearance of traditional dentures but now have the confidence given by natural-looking FOY® Dentures.
But another major complaint people have about their dentures is that they don’t feel good, either. This isn’t a surprise: dentures are tooth replacement options that don’t work like natural teeth. Instead of being supported by bones, dentures rest on your gums, and that can lead to painful irritation. But there are ways to reduce or even eliminate this irritation with FOY® Dentures.
Better Fit Leads to Less Pain
One of the biggest reasons why dentures cause pain is that they don’t fit properly. If dentures don’t fit right, they can put pressure on your gums unevenly. This uneven pressure leads to pain where the dentures press hardest. In cases of very poor fit, the denture may even rock back and forth.
Poor fit also causes pain because dentures can slide around in the mouth. This sliding rubs your sensitive gums, and can cause pain along the entire path of movement for your gums.
This type of movement and uneven pressure is more than just uncomfortable: it can accelerate bone loss in the jawbone. After you lose your natural teeth, your body begins removing the bone that supported your teeth. Traditional dentures can speed up the process, which means that you need more denture fittings to maintain the fit of your dentures. Even it the fit is initially bad, it will get worse, which means more refitting and relines for your dentures.
FOY® Dentures are designed to get a more comfortable fit. The FOY® Dentures process is built scientifically to get the best match between your dentures and your gums. Your FOY® Dentures dentist can even measure the force all along the denture to understand where any pinch points might be and how to eliminate them. This makes your dentures more comfortable and helps eliminate the pinch points that accelerate bone loss.
Implant Dentures Are the Best Option
Of course, the best way to eliminate pain in the gums is to get dentures that don’t rest on your gums. This means dental implants.
When you get implant dentures, you provide some additional support and security for your dentures to eliminate denture pain.
With implant-retained dentures, dental implants hold your dentures in place so they don’t slide around. This avoids irritation from moving dentures. Implant-supported dentures are even better–they take the bite force from dentures and direct it into the bone so it’s not on the gums at all. As long as these stay healthy, you shouldn’t feel any pain from implant-supported dentures.
FOY® Dentures are compatible with either type of implant denture.
