When our Fairfax-area patients lose teeth, this begins a process that results in the loss of bone tissue in your jawbone. This loss of structural integrity can cause all sorts of long-term damage, including a collapsed jaw appearance and an increased risk for tooth loss. FOY® Dentures can help minimize these problems.
When considering your denture options, keep in mind that the Denture Fountain of Youth® will be able to address serious foundational health issues presented by tooth loss. They provide better facial support, balanced bite, and an improved jaw line and facial contours.
As a general dentist with years of experience treating tooth loss, Dr. Pamela Marzban has seen exactly what tooth loss can do to patients’ facial appearance and bite. That’s why, in addition to traditional dentures, Dr. Marzban offers FOY® Dentures to her Burke-area patients.
FOY® Dentures vs. Traditional Dentures
While traditional dentures can replace individual teeth and improve your quality of life, they can worsen the bone deterioration that tooth loss can cause. By contrast, FOY® Dentures will:
- Eliminate pinch points that can accelerate bone loss
- Reduce or eliminate denture pain
- Increase facial support
- Provide plumper, more attractive lips
- Improve your chewing and speaking ability
- Prevent a shrunken facial appearance
- Give you a beautiful smile
Traditional dentures rest on the gums and often the poorly balanced ones can rock in your mouth and cause pressure points in certain places. They often fit poorly and can move around in the mouth. To try to make the denture more stable, many dentists place them far back in the mouth. This results in a shrunken facial appearance, and because they aren’t designed to fill out your face, your lips and jawline may look collapsed.
By contrast, FOY® Dentures rest partially on the muscles of your jaw. This not only helps to stabilize and balance the denture, it ensures that your denture is fitted to the youthful proportions of your face.
Your FOY® Dentures also strengthen the jaw and teeth structures that support your face. The result is that your new ones will give you the appearance of a freshly invigorated, more youthful face with a fuller jaw contour and lips without requiring cosmetic surgery. FOY® Dentures can create an ideal bite position for you. This not only improves your appearance, it also improves your ability to chew and creates a more comfortable bite.
FOY® Dentures Are Beautiful
In addition to their outstanding fit, FOY® Dentures are designed to be the most beautiful dentures available. FOY® Dentures are made using the latest techniques and technologies in cosmetic dentistry. You get a custom smile–not just the same one as all denture wearers. Instead of being flat red plastic, the base is a layered construction that gives the proper translucency and depth of gum tissue. Inclusions of small fibers even mimic the appearance of blood vessels. Plus, the teeth are ceramic, not plastic, so they have the bright luster of natural teeth. And they resist stains!
What about Dental Implants?
Sometimes people talk about comparing dental implants and dentures as if they are different options. The truth is that if you have lost all your teeth, you still need dentures on top of your implants to replace missing teeth. If these are poorly made, you may still have a bad experience.
FOY® Dentures can be used along with dental implants to give you the most attractive, most comfortable, and most functional results.
Neuromuscular Dentistry and Your FOY® Dentures
FOY® Dentures rely on the science of neuromuscular dentistry. In order to get your best results you need someone who understands neuromuscular dentistry.
Dr. Marzban will use her training and experience with neuromuscular dentistry, as well as her advanced technology, to map your ideal bite. She’ll then use FOY® Dentures to help you achieve it. She uses advanced T-Scan digital bite measurement to ensure that every point on the denture receives balanced bite forces.
