Why Do Dentures Cause a Sunken Facial Appearance?
You might wonder why dentures cause a sunken face to begin with. This is because traditional dentures don’t do anything to remedy the effects of bone loss.
When you no longer have tooth roots in your jaw, there is no longer a need for bone mass in the area. Without tooth roots, the bone mass begins to deplete. Once it depletes, it causes your face to become sunken. FOY® Dentures have actually been specifically developed to combat this problem.
Neuromuscular Dentistry with the Denture Fountain of Youth®
So how do FOY® Dentures help you look younger? To start, they use neuromuscular dentistry. Neuromuscular dentistry works to give you an optimal alignment of your bite by working with jaw joints and related soft tissue. Dr. Chris Hill helps our patients achieve their optimal muscle relaxation and function through his knowledge and training of the neuromuscular dimensions of the mouth to construct FOY® Dentures. The dentures give our patients stable and relaxed muscles that result in better fitting dentures that provide optimal facial support and function.

If FOY® Dentures sound like the right solution for your missing teeth, it’s time to schedule a consultation with our dentist to see if they are the right treatment option for you.
FOY® Dentures and Dental Implants
If you want to take your FOY® Dentures treatment one step further, consider using them with dental implants. Dental implants can secure your Fountain of Youth Dentures in place to allow you to have natural feeling teeth that look great. Dental implants help patients eat normally with the security of knowing their restoration won’t become loose or fall out at the wrong time. If you’re interested in securing your FOY® Dentures with dental implants, we will need to confirm that you are a good candidate for the procedure.
Good candidates need to have sufficient bone mass in their jaw; otherwise, a bone graft is required. We will need to place several dental implants in the jaw to hold the FOY® Dentures in place. Once they are placed, you will have secure, non-removable teeth that feel, chew, and look just like real teeth.
