Many people have a bad experience with getting dentures. This is more than the fact that most dentures don’t fit well, might be painful, and might not provide good function. The experience of getting dentures can make you feel as if the process is very much out of your control.
However, when you get FOY® Dentures, you will be in control of the process every step of the way. This not only helps you get dentures that you will be happy with, but it can also make the process a more enjoyable voyage of self-transformation.
Why Most Denture Processes Feel Out of Control
There are many reasons why most traditional dentures processes make you feel like the entire thing is out of your control. First, traditional dental techniques are very authoritative. The dentist is the doctor, and they will deliver the care to you. The patient should be a reasonably passive recipient of care, not speaking up unless asked for feedback.
In addition, traditional denture processes are not especially customized. The denture process is standardized other than fitting the denture to your gums and perhaps paying attention to your bite. The gums are standard. The teeth are standard. You get the same denture as everyone else. This is even more extreme for economy (cheap) dentures, which may come in only a few basic sizes.
Finally, many dentists see denture patients as low-profit, secondary patients. Since many denture patients are cost-focused, dentists compete to deliver the lowest-cost dentures possible. Part of the goal for providing low-cost dentures is to spend as little time as possible in the process. Dentists following this economic model try to get through the denture process as quickly as possible, which means getting little to no feedback from their patients. It’s not accidental that the process seems like a whirlwind that’s finished before you have any time to alter it. That’s the only way the dentist can make money delivering cheap dentures.
With the FOY® Dentures Process, You’re in Control
However, the FOY® Dentures process is different. It is anything but a standardized, cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-most approach.
First, FOY® Dentures dentists respect our patients. We don’t judge you because you need dentures. We know people lose their teeth for many reasons, and we will never say you’re bad or place blame on you for your tooth loss. We know that you’re choosing FOY® Dentures because you want a quality result that maintains your self-confidence. You’ve done your research and have made an informed decision. This gives us reason to respect your opinion, and we will take the time to listen to what you have to say.
FOY® Dentures are a fully custom appliance. You can select the teeth and have input into the appearance of the gums. We’ll work to make sure the fit really makes you happy and that the product is precisely the dentures you’re looking for.
FOY® Dentures dentists take the time to listen to their patients. Listening to you is part of the process because we know you have insight into your dentures that we can never have. Of course, we will offer our professional opinions to help you make better decisions, but in the end, you are the one who will have the final say about your dentures, even if that means going somewhere else to get them.
This different process is essential to making FOY® Dentures work, unlike traditional dentures.
Control Starts in the Consultation
During the initial consultation, we want to ensure that FOY® Dentures are the right choice for you. We’ll start by listening to your experience with your natural teeth and with any prior dentures. We’ll ask you about your denture goals and any limitations you might face from the budget, time constraints, health conditions, and more.
Then we’ll help you decide if FOY® Dentures seem like the best choice for you.
You Help Design the Dentures
While FOY® Dentures dentists are masters of smile aesthetics and can design a beautiful smile on their own, they are happy to let you help with the process. First, you can let us know if you are trying to restore the smile of your youth or achieve the new smile of your dreams. Both are possible with FOY® Dentures. Next, you can help us with individual cosmetic decisions, like picking the precise shape of each tooth. You can also choose how white you want your new teeth to be. You have complete control over the appearance of your dentures.
In addition, as we fit your dentures, we will ask for your input about the comfort and function.
You Have Final Say
Before we manufacture your new dentures, we will do what is known as a wax try-in. At this step, you will get a chance to try a model of your new dentures that lets you experience their fit, function, and appearance. We won’t make the final denture until we’ve gotten your approval on the model. If necessary, we can take several tries at the wax model stage to make sure we’re getting it right.
Get the Dentures You Really Want
Your teeth and your smile are an important part of your identity, and when you get dentures to replace them, you want them to be just as much a part of you. Shouldn’t you have a say in what these dentures are like?
That’s what you get when you work with a FOY® Dentures dentist. You stay in control of the dentures process so you can be satisfied with the final results. To get your denture process started, please contact a local FOY® Dentures dentist today.
