When it comes to dentures, you get what you pay for. Cheap dentures look cheap, feel cheap, and can do more harm than good. High end dentures look natural. They feel comfortable. They help support your head, neck, and jaw. They make you look younger and healthier.
But we understand your reluctance. You know what you’re saving when you buy cheap dentures—the money is real to you, but you don’t know what you’re paying for when you buy high-end dentures. Let us explain what you get in return.
You’re Paying for Comfort
In dentures, comfort means customization. The more the dentures are customized to your gums, your mouth, your jaw, and your muscles, the more comfortable it will be. Cheap dentures are customized just to your gums. They come off the rack with standard molds in a few sizes, you just bite into the molded part to press them to your gums. Though these are supposed to fit your gums, because they don’t fit your mouth very well, they can often pinch your gums, which is not only painful, it can speed jawbone loss.
Mid-range dentures can be adjusted in size a bit. Your mouth is measured and dentures are ordered that seem the right size for your mouth. They might feel a little more comfortable on your gums. They won’t pinch as much and they won’t feel too large. But they might make your jaw feel sore, and chewing can be uncomfortable.
High end dentures, though, are customized to your entire bite. This means that not only is your mouth measured, but your jaw and jaw muscles are as well. This means that high-end dentures fit not just your gums and not just your mouth, but they fit your muscles. They feel comfortable to wear and comfortable to chew with. You won’t find yourself pulling out your dentures at every opportunity.
You’re Paying for Appearance
Cheap dentures are made with cheap materials. They often look fake and plastic. Mid-range dentures can have teeth that are more natural in appearance, but they’re generic, and the base sometimes still looks plastic.
High-end dentures are made with the best materials and using the most advanced techniques to give a naturalistic appearance. They won’t look fake. The teeth are made of a natural-looking ceramic, similar to what high-end cosmetic dentists use, and they’re designed to meet your exact desires. If you want a perfect, Hollywood smile, you can have it. If you want to have a natural, normal appearance, you can have it. If you want a smile just like your natural teeth, you can have that, too.
The denture base is designed with texture and translucency like your natural gums. They don’t look flat and plastic.
Not only that, but your dentures affect the appearance of your face. If your dentures don’t properly support your face, you will get the sunken-in appearance that many people think of as being the “dentures look.” But it’s not the dentures look, it’s the “cheap dentures look.” FOY® Dentures are able to support your facial structure so you look younger and healthier.
You’re Paying for Time
Most importantly, when you buy high-end dentures, you’re paying for time. You’re paying for a dentist who has taken the time to get advanced training in the FOY® Dentures process. You’re paying for a dentist who will take the time to fit your dentures properly and make sure they’re done right.
Most importantly, you’re paying for your time. With cheap dentures, you can expect to go back to the dentist’s office again and again to try to get the fit right. This wastes your time, and while you’re fighting this process, you can’t enjoy your life. You may not be able to wear your dentures or use them to eat.
But with FOY® Dentures, our fitting process makes sure that the fit is right. If you need to get a refit, it’s minor, and it won’t need to make repeated visits to get the right fit.
You’re Paying for Health
Cheap dentures don’t properly support your head, neck, and jaw. This can contribute to a number of problems, including TMJ symptoms like jaw pain, headaches, and neck pain.
Another consequence of tooth loss can be the collapse of your airway, which leads to sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a serious health condition that can lead to heart disease and early onset of dementia.
FOY® Dentures ensure that your jaw is in the proper position, which can prevent or eliminate TMJ symptoms and may help with sleep apnea.
High-End Dentures Are Worth the Investment
High-end dentures may seem like a big investment, but there are a number of concrete benefits that you get in return. If you are looking for dentures that are more comfortable, attractive, and promote your health, high-end dentures are worth it.
