Addressing Facial Collapse and Tooth Loss with Dentures Treatment
Adult tooth loss poses a number of functional and aesthetic oral problems, but beyond that, missing teeth can compromise the entire structure of the face. Without proper stimulation from the tooth roots, the jaw bone will begin to deteriorate over time, softening the jaw line and most likely resulting in facial collapse. With these sunken in facial features, many patients feel that they appear much older than their actual age. Dr. Joseph Perry offers his San Antonio patients dentures for facial collapse. Fountain Of Youth Dentures replace missing teeth while lifting and filling in facial features to create a more youthful appearance.
Candidates for Fountain Of Youth Dentures
There are a number of choices to consider as far as dentures are concerned. Dr. Perry offers traditional dentures and implant-supported dentures along with Fountain Of Youth Dentures. Which type of denture is best for each patient will be determined upon a thorough examination of each patient’s teeth, gums, and jaw, along with a discussion with the patient regarding their primary concerns and their goals for treatment. In general, Fountain Of Youth Dentures are ideal for patients who have seen a marked change in the shape and structure of their facial features and those who would like to, not only address tooth loss, but also reverse some of these changes to correct facial collapse.
What Sets Fountain Of Youth Dentures Apart?
Every type of denture that is offered will restore lost teeth in order to improve oral function, as well as enhance the appearance of the mouth. While filling in missing teeth in itself will help to improve the appearance of sunken facial features, Fountain Of Youth Dentures goes beyond the capabilities of traditional dentures.
What makes Fountain Of Youth Dentures unique is that they do not simply rest on the gum line. They actually work with the facial muscles to eliminate the sunken in look that many tooth loss patients experience. Constructed at a certified Fountain Of Youth Dentures lab, these dental restorations utilize a neuromuscular dentistry technique to create an optimal fit that allows the facial muscles to relax and work alongside the dentures. This gives patients a more comfortable and secure fit and even provides stimulation and support to the jaw bone, something that cannot be said of traditional dentures. By working with the facial muscles, Fountain Of Youth Dentures allow patients to benefit from the following aesthetic improvements:
- Fill in sunken facial features around the mouth and jaw
- Plump the lips
- Soften lines and wrinkles around the mouth
Of course, in addition, Fountain Of Youth Dentures offer the same functional benefits of traditional dentures, which include the following:
- Improved chewing
- Clearer speech
- Ease and comfort of oral functions
