If you have dentures, you know about the struggles that come with them.
The one-size-fits-all approach, the constant moving that makes it difficult to eat or speak, and perhaps worst of all, the way they sometimes look unnatural are enough to make you want to give up on them.
Luckily, there’s a better way to solve some of those problems so that you can be confident in your smile.
What Are FOY Dentures?
Much like traditional dentures, these are designed to replace your teeth and restore your smile. The major difference is that FOY Dentures rely heavily on neuromuscular technology (the study of your mouth as a system of bones, nerves and muscles) to ensure that the fit and function are perfect for you.
How Are FOY Dentures Different Than Regular Dentures?
One of the biggest differences is the material used to make them. Regular dentures are made of plastic, which can sometimes cause them to look unnatural. FOY Dentures are handcrafted with ceramic and a durable PMMA base to give them the lustre of real teeth. The material allows the dentures to be designed individually for a smile that is yours.
While traditional dentures are suitable for replacing teeth, they don’t address the larger problem: your face structure. As your teeth get worn down, signs of aging start to appear. Jowls, thin lips, sunken cheeks, and wrinkles around the mouth are all common side-effects of damaged or missing teeth. FOY Dentures are designed to reduce the signs of facial aging by restoring the youthful proportions of your face.
Traditional dentures can lead to long-term problems. Because they don’t sit well on your gums, they can put uneven pressure on your jawbone. Your body will think that part of your jawbone isn’t being used, so it will remove that bone in a process called resorption. If this happens, you will have to take another trip to the dentist to get your dentures refitted. With FOY Dentures, the base is made to fit your mouth, which evenly distributes pressure on your gums. This reduces discomfort and may even slow resorption.
Comfort should always be a top priority when it comes to your mouth. FOY Dentures are designed to keep up with you so that you can eat, laugh and smile without worrying about your dentures falling out. They are made using impressions of your mouth in motion, which eliminates the guesswork of how your mouth might work.
A natural appearance is something that most patients want in their dentures. With FOY Dentures, the base is created using a layering technique that mimics the appearance of blood vessels found in natural gums.
In addition to a natural appearance, FOY Dentures also give the wearer a youthful appearance by recreating the original proportions of your smile. They are designed to be the full height of the teeth that you had when you were young which reduces the signs of aging.
