Just because you’ve lost your teeth, it doesn’t mean you want to look or feel old. Unfortunately, most dentists think that if you’ve lost your teeth, you should be resigned to an aged appearance. They give you dentures that are poorly fitted and can make you look older. Even worse, these poorly fitted dentures can actually accelerate facial aging.
But with FOY® Dentures, you will look dramatically younger, and you won’t experience more rapid facial aging.
How Dentures Make You Look Old
Your teeth aren’t just there for biting and chewing. Among their functions is crucial support for the lower third of your face. When you lose your teeth, this support is gone. The face collapses, and as the lower jaw moves up to meet the upper jaw, the skin of your face hangs loose and folds. This contributes to the appearance of:
- Nasolabial folds (parenthesis lines)
- Wrinkles around the mouth (lipstick lines)
- Thin lips
- Sunken cheeks
- Marionette lines
- Turkey neck
Traditional dentures aren’t designed to fully replace the volume of your lost teeth. In addition, teeth on these dentures is often set back because the dentures aren’t stable. Because these dentures are usually short, you still end up with skin that doesn’t fit properly around your lower face. The above effects persist, though they may be diminished.
But that’s not the only problem. Without your teeth, your body will naturally remove bone from your jaw, diminishing support for the lower third of your face even further. Traditional dentures are often poorly fitted. This creates pressure points and pinch points that can actually speed up bone loss from these areas. This accelerates the process of facial aging.
