A Neuromuscular Approach to Dentures
Neuromuscular dentistry is the study of the mouth as a system of muscles, bones, and nerves. FOY® Dentures utilize the insights of neuromuscular dentistry to improve the fit and function of dentures. While traditional dentures are based on a static impression of your mouth, FOY® Dentures are based on a dynamic impression—one made while your muscles are in motion—that helps your dentures fit better.
Neuromuscular dentistry also helps determine the ideal height of your dentures. Like the rest of your facial tissues, your mouth muscles developed around your teeth at their full height. This height left its mark in your muscles, and by reading your muscles, we can find an appropriate height for your dentures that will lead to a more comfortable fit.
A Cosmetic Approach to Dentures
FOY® Dentures are designed to be beautiful dentures. They are based on enduring principles of proportion and beauty that give them an attractive appearance. These principles are applied individually every time a person is fitted with FOY® Dentures, giving a customized smile that is uniquely suited to that person’s face while still in harmony with these principles of beauty.
FOY® Dentures are also designed to reverse the signs of aging by reproducing the original proportions of your smile. By giving your teeth the full height that they had when you were young, they can reduce many of the signs of facial aging that result when teeth wear down or are lost.
Traditional dentures also cause an aged appearance because they move your teeth inward toward your tongue for stability. This is what creates the sunken-in appearance with traditional dentures. Because FOY® Dentures are very stable, they can put your teeth outward at a more natural and youthful position, eliminating this sunken-in appearance.
