While traditional dentures are a popular option for teeth replacement, FOY® Dentures are the only denture that offers you the level of comfort, customization and confidence that you can get with a dental restoration. They are also the only type of denture that works to combat jaw bone resorption, the cause of the aged or "sunken in" facial appearance that occurs when we lose our teeth.
Unknown to most patients who experience tooth loss are the issues that occur as a result of not having teeth in the form of jawbone deterioration. The bone material that the tooth root is attached to is accustomed to physical stimulation that is produced by normal behaviors of biting and chewing. As long as natural teeth are in place and disease is absent, our upper and lower jaws can be
expected to remain healthy and intact. However the loss of our teeth and their former replacement – traditional dentures that are designed to rest on top of the gum tissue – do not provide direct stimulation to the jaw bone material and thus do nothing to combat the effects of jawbone resorption, resulting in patients who look much older than they actually are.
FOY® Dentures are designed to stimulate the jawbone by creating a better fitting denture that rests partially on the muscles. They are placed to build the bite at a position that the muscles will best function; the same position that provides the greatest facial support and works to achieve stability and greater facial aesthetics.
