At Dentistry by Shane Nelson, DDS, we have discovered the Fountain of Youth®. For those patients who are missing (or anticipate extraction of) an entire upper or lower set of teeth, FoY dentures are a great option to restore the appearance and functionality of your smile naturally. Since so many unique characteristics are associated with these dentures, it is essential to consider them a vital investment for your health and well-being. Plus, our practice in Overland Park is also privileged to offer financing through CareCredit™, which helps our patients pay for the out-of-pocket cost related to treatment to complete their smiles.
The value of Fountain of Youth® dentures
Traditional, removable dentures are designed from molds of your mouth at rest. So, the denture that is designed to fit the contours of your mouth does not correctly simulate the mouth when it is in motion. Furthermore, these conventional dentures do not curb devastating bone loss. They hasten the process. As supportive bone shrinks, it alters the appearance of your face and worsens problems with chewing food and with clear speech.
Additionally, these options require ongoing appointments. So, the denture can be readjusted to fit the shrinking underlying tissues. These adjustments may include relines, rebasing, or replacing the entire appliance. Furthermore, there may be a sizeable adjustment period as patients become accustomed to eating or otherwise “using” their dentures.
Fountain of Youth® dentures are designed using neuromuscular (NM) principles. In part, they are based on models of your mouth in motion. So, they can best simulate and facilitate natural activity and function. These dentures also restore a balanced “bite,” or relationship between the upper and lower teeth, youthful facial proportions, and contours, producing a superior or optimal fit. They truly provide a “lift” to patients whose facial appearance has been “aged” due to bone loss and that characteristic “sunken-in” appearance that arises with this devastating process and with conventional dentures options. Consider the long-term value of FoY options. Avoid the replacement costs associated with so-called “economy” or “bargain” dentures. Think of the renewed quality of life that comes with well-fitting dentures that allow you to speak, eat, smile, and laugh confidently.
