The Bad Rap of Traditional Dentures

When people think of dentures, it seems only negative thoughts come to mind:

  • Slippage
  • Obvious-looking fake teeth
  • Messy adhesives
  • Constant taking out and putting back in
  • Cleaning/soaking at night
  • Unable to eat favorite foods
  • Sunken-in facial appearance
  • Painful sore spots where the dentures don’t fit properly

Wilmington, NC, denture dentist Dr. Michael J. Kuzma wants you and your loved ones to know that not all dentures cause the abovementioned problems. You may experience issues if your dentures were improperly fitted, not created with your specific needs, and made from sub-standard materials. You have nothing to worry about when you get dentures at Kuzma Advanced Dentistry, serving Wilmington and surrounding areas of the Tar Heel State.

If you’re not happy with the dentures you have now, we would love for you to visit Kuzma Advanced Dentistry to show you how we place dentures and the options that will work for your situation. If you’ve never needed dentures until recent tooth loss due to tooth decay, gum disease, advanced age, or an accident resulting in lost or broken teeth, we want you to allow us to be your first choice and meet the best denture dentist in the Wilmington area.

The Denture Fountain of Youth®

Today’s most innovative, comfortable, beautiful dentures are the hugely popular FOY® Dentures—the Denture Fountain of Youth®. Unlike the mythical fountain of youth, these Fountain of Youth® Dentures turn back the clock and restore your face, jaw, and mouth to the aesthetically pleasing appearance you had before tooth loss.

The Denture Fountain of Youth® are ceramic teeth made from a material similar to the one used to make porcelain veneers; the material closely mimics tooth enamel. The teeth are also designed using the latest principles in cosmetic dentistry. Your smile will be custom-designed to look like your old one, or we can create a brand-new smile to consider. Some prefer to retain minor flaws that give their smile character and originality. The choice is all yours!

One of the key innovations that makes The Denture Fountain of Youth® fit better than traditional dentures is the introduction of neuromuscular dentistry, an area of dentistry that focuses on the interaction between the muscles, bones, nerves, and teeth in your jaw.

Using the physiology of neuromuscular dentistry to create The Denture Fountain of Youth® for you, we work diligently to ensure your dentures fit properly with your muscles, jawbone, and joints. It’s like getting a facelift without the surgery, prolonged recovery time, bandages, and pain medications.

The proper fit from FOY® Dentures eliminates uncomfortable pressure points and ensures no undue stress on your muscles or joints, resulting in a more comfortable fit. Proper fit also allows your muscles to help hold your dentures in place, even when you’re talking or chewing. No longer will you have to worry about constant slippage while talking, chewing, or laughing, and these dentures will look, feel, and function just like your natural teeth—better yet, they’ll deliver a stunning new smile you’ll be proud to show off.

If you’ve been covering your smile with your hand due to ill-fitting dentures or tooth loss, with FOY® Dentures, you will have the confidence to keep your hands down and show those pearly whites.
