What Is Neuromuscular Dentistry?
Neuromuscular dentistry is a type of dentistry that focuses on the mouth as a complete system that includes teeth, bones, muscles, and nerves. It emphasizes that the mouth isn’t something static, but is constantly in motion, and that the mouth system has to interact properly with other body systems, especially the muscles of the head and neck.
While traditional dentures are made as a simple tooth replacement, FOY® Dentures are made to replace your teeth as part of this complex system, which can have many benefits for you.
Benefits of Neuromuscular Dentures
In addition to the basic benefits of better-fitting and better-looking dentures, FOY® Dentures are more comfortable to wear and use. While other dentures may make you feel like you’re having to squeeze down too hard to make contact, or don’t feel like they’re the right size in your mouth, FOY® Dentures are designed to put your chewing muscles at the proper extension for relaxing and for chewing. This makes them more comfortable whether they’re just in or if you’re chewing.
FOY® Dentures can also help in other ways. When your bite isn’t coming together properly, your body tries to compensate. You may find yourself not just with sore jaw muscles, but also with recurring headaches or neck pain.
You may find you hold your head at an angle since you started wearing dentures. This is probably not a coincidence: it often happens to people with poorly fitting dentures. It’s another symptom of your body trying to compensate for the uneven support your dentures are giving.
FOY® Dentures are designed not just to improve your smile: they’re designed to improve your life.
