What are FOY® Dentures?

The Denture Fountain of Youth® offers a huge breakthrough in the fit and design of traditional dentures. Unlike traditional dentures, their design incorporates neuromuscular principles that help them work seamlessly with your nerves, muscles, bones, and other parts of your mouth system. This improved design offers more support for your facial structure which can help you look years younger. The neuromuscular principles also improve the fit, it’s comfort, function, appearance, and longevity of the dentures. The more harmoniously your dentures work with the elements of your mouth, the easier it is to maintain their fit and function over time.

In addition to the neuromuscular principles in the design, FOY® Dentures also use high-quality materials. For instance, they use advanced ceramic material instead of cheap plastic like traditional dentures. This material is similar to the material used for dental crowns or porcelain veneers. For the gum area of the dentures, they use a unique layering technique that gives the gums a translucent look that matches natural gums.

What are Dental Implants?

If you’re replacing your missing teeth, you’ve probably heard your dentist recommend dental implants, and for a good reason. Dental implants are titanium posts that resemble screws that are surgically placed inside your jaw and work similarly to tooth roots. Replacement teeth are then attached to the dental implants. Dental implants offer results that feel as close to natural teeth as possible.

With dental implants, all the pressure from chewing on your replacement tooth goes directly to the jaw bone instead of the gums like with traditional dentures. This results in more comfort. It will also prevent you from ever feeling stressed that your replacement teeth will fall out when you bite into something hard, chewy, or crunchy.

One of the best benefits of dental implants is that they prevent bone resorption from occurring. Once you lose your natural teeth, your body realizes it no longer has teeth to hold in place and as a result, the bone begins to resorb. When this happens, your facial structure will no longer have as much support and it can cause the lower third of your face to age dramatically. You might experience skin sagging in your neck and more prominent wrinkles around your mouth. When you opt for dental implants, your body will maintain its jaw bone and prevent it from resorbing which will prevent you from experiencing early signs of aging. 

The Power of Combining FOY® Dentures with Dental Implants

The only thing better than FOY® Dentures and dental implants alone is their treatments combined together. Implant dentures work just like your natural teeth and offer lots of amazing benefits like:

  • Support for gums and jawbone
  • Removable or fixed options
  • Never click, slip or fall out
  • Don’t cause sore spots or pinch the gums
  • Chew with more force
  • The implants can last a lifetime

With implant dentures, you can enjoy a higher quality of life and not just for the near future, but for the rest of your life. Without suffering from bone loss, your facial appearance can look younger for longer!

One of the reasons people opt for implant dentures is because they want to forget that they have replacement teeth altogether. With implant dentures, we can fix your FOY® Dentures to your dental implants so they never come out. They will function and look just like real teeth and you never have to worry about having a toothless grin.

Whether you decide to get the removable or fixed, you will enjoy eating without stressing about your teeth potentially falling out in the process. Chewing, talking, and smiling will feel completely natural.

Since FOY® Dentures already have neuromuscular components included in their design, when you combine their amazing functionality with dental implants, the implants will work even more harmoniously than they would with traditional dentures. When your entire mouth system works in harmony, it will prevent TMJ issues and implant failure from happening.
