Unfortunately, people can lose their teeth. They either have accidents or have lost their teeth due to tooth decay or gum disease. Many are suffering from having to wear a denture, and most dentists don't make dentures well. As a result, many dentures are unattractive, poorly fitting, and made in such a way that the bite does not line up properly. This causes the patient to suffer from ill-fitting, loose dentures that they despise wearing on a daily basis. They may be extremely uncomfortable or make them look older than they are because of how unnatural they appear.
One of the primary functions of our natural teeth is to not only allow us to chew our food and look great when we smile, but are also there to help hold our face out, and to not allow our face to "collapse in." They are meant to hold our jawbone in place. If an individual loses all of his or her teeth, the jawbone where the teeth used to be will deteriorate and essentially shrink down. As everything shrinks, the patient's chin will get closer to their nose. With the traditional way the dentures are made, this is not taken into account very well. These dentures will contribute to the patient's face being shorter, more sunken in, and will increase the amount of wrinkles and fine lines they experience.
The Denture Fountain of Youth™ help address these issues. They can provide a solution for these common problems associated with dentures. They are fabricated in such a way in which we find the patient's muscles that move their jaws and are at the most comfortable position, and we build their new dentures into that position to help restore the teeth and bone that were lost. This provides a more aesthetic look to someone's face when they are wearing the dentures. This, in turn, will make the patients appear younger because the dentures are designed to replace all the tissue that has been lost or will be lost over a period of time.
