Based on principles of Neuromuscular dentistry, the hard tissues and the soft tissues, muscles and nerves, are allowed to work harmoniously by determining the position that best benefits the individual’s mouth and facial structure.
Fountain of Youth™ Dentures employ principles of neuromuscular dentistry that seek to achieve and maintain optimum muscle relaxation and function. Because they offer a customized fit, these dentures can allow the wearer to experience functional and aesthetic benefits that traditional dentures can’t.
Many patients often wonder “How much will Fountain of Youth™ Dentures cost?” Most patients are surprised to hear that a portion of Fountain of Youth™ Dentures may be covered by dental insurance and that they are billed the way traditional dentures are billed. Because Fountain of Youth™ are so customized, they are also more expensive than economy or traditional dentures but can offer improved fit, comfort, function and aesthetics.
While traditional dentures are a popular option for teeth replacement, Fountain of Youth™ Dentures offer you comfort, customization, beauty and confidence. They also work to combat jawbone 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. 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, traditional dentures – that are designed to rest on top of the gum tissue – do not provide direct stimulation to the jawbone and thus do nothing to combat the effects of bone resorption, resulting in patients who look much older than they really are.
Fountain of Youth™ Dentures are designed to stimulate the jawbone by creating a better fitting denture that rests partially on the muscles. The teeth are placed so the bite is built in a position where the muscles will best function – the same position that provides the greatest facial support and works to achieve denture stability and greater facial harmony.
