a photo of denturesDentures are an old technology. The first dentures were developed millennia ago, and consisted of metal wire wrapped around the remaining teeth and replacement teeth. These dentures were probably just cosmetic–they likely weren’t functional at all.

But denture technology has advanced considerably since then, and Fountain of Youth Dentures® represent the top of the line in modern dentures. They overcome many of the limitations that used to make life unpleasant for denture wearers.

Here are all some of the things that plague wearers of traditional dentures that the Denture Fountain of Youth® wearers don’t have to worry about.

They Slip Out

Traditional dentures caused a lot of problems because they didn’t fit well. Chief among them is the problem that these dentures would slip out often. When you were eating, talking, or laughing, your dentures would shift in your mouth, or sometimes come out completely, leading to an embarrassing situation.

But Fountain of Youth Dentures® fit better so you don’t have to worry about this. You can talk, laugh, and eat with confidence knowing that your dentures are secure.

You Can’t Eat Most Foods

Having your dentures slip out is more than just embarrassing, it can make it very hard to eat the foods you used to enjoy. Traditional denture wearers found their diet was very limited by the poor fit of their dentures.

But Fountain of Youth Dentures® are designed to help you apply better bite force and to stay in place better when you’re eating. You will enjoy a wider range of food, which has a big impact on your quality of life.

Your Nutrition Suffers

Not being able to eat a full range of foods not only takes some of the joy out of life, it can lead to poor nutrition. Especially if you can’t eat raw fruits and vegetables. Many vitamins and nutrients that are destroyed by cooking reduce the risk of cancer, arthritis, and other major health concerns.

Fountain of Youth Dentures® give you the ability to eat crunchy fruits and vegetables so you can make sure you’re getting all the nutrients your body needs.

They Lead to Jawbone Loss

Once you lose your teeth, jawbone loss is inevitable. Your body realizes the bone that anchored the teeth is now less necessary than it was, so it begins to remove it. Only dental implants can prevent the loss of jawbone.

But traditional dentures actually sped up the process of bone loss. With balanced forces and proper fit, Fountain of Youth Dentures® eliminate pressure points that speed the loss of jawbone.

They’re Uncomfortable

Traditional dentures could be very uncomfortable. They were imbalanced in your mouth, causing pinch points that irritated your gums, making them red, inflamed, and painful. Not only that, but they weren’t balanced properly for your jaw joints and muscles. This could lead to soreness when chewing, and might even lead to the development of TMJ.

But Fountain of Youth Dentures® are designed using neuromuscular dentistry principles so they fit comfortably in your mouth and prevent the development of jaw joint problems.

Everyone Can Tell You Have Them

Poor fit, poor craftsmanship, and poor materials can be a dead giveaway when it comes to your dentures. But Fountain of Youth Dentures® are designed to match the natural appearance of your teeth and gums. The teeth are made of a similar ceramic to that used in porcelain veneers, and the base has translucency and layering to make them look like natural gum tissue.

And because they fit so securely, no one will know that you’re wearing the Denture Fountain of Youth®–unless you tell them.

They Make You Look Older

We all know the “dentures look.” The mouth is sunken in, the chin and nose are coming together, and much of the face hangs down limp because there is not enough support given by traditional dentures.

But that’s where Fountain of Youth Dentures® get their name–they fix all these problems to give your face the support it hand when you were younger and your natural teeth were young, strong, and healthy. You will be delighted at how much younger you look when you put in your Fountain of Youth Dentures®.
