Most dentures are thought of in static terms. They just sit on your gums. However, FOY® Dentures are designed with the movement of your mouth in mind. They’re designed to take support from your muscles as well as your bones, which helps them stay in place. It also helps them evenly distribute forces on your jawbone.
This has many positive benefits. With traditional dentures, you might experience pressure on the top and sides of the bony ridge that used to support your teeth. Your body is already starting to remove this bone, but this painful pressure can speed up the loss of bone. With FOY® Dentures, you avoid the pressure that leads to denture pain and speeds the loss of bone.
FOY® Dentures also take into account the proper relationship between your jaw, neck, and skull, and encourages a healthy posture. This can help you avoid headaches, neck pain, and more complications that some people experience when they wear dentures.
The dynamic basis of FOY® Dentures’ design also gives you functional benefits. Traditional dentures come out of your mouth so easily in part because they aren’t designed to accommodate the motions of your mouth like talking, eating, and laughing.
FOY® Dentures improve their fit in two ways. First, a FOY® Dentures dentist carefully uses the latest and best techniques to take impressions of your gums and bones. Second, the dentist also takes impressions of your jaw muscles in motion. This helps make FOY® Dentures more secure and helps them move properly in all these common situations.
The only cosmetic thought that goes into traditional dentures is your smile. Traditional dentures try to give you a basic smile that people hopefully won’t notice or pay attention to. They are not concerned with the proportions of your face. If they think about it at all, they try to replicate the proportions of your face before your teeth were removed.
But with FOY® Dentures, your dentist will take the time to reconstruct the youthful proportions of your face. Because your teeth, bones, and soft tissues all developed together, this creates a more harmonious balance between your features. It helps you look younger, but without the “operated on” look that you can get from plastic surgery.
