Can Dentures Restore My Youthful Appearance?

QWhy Do Traditional Dentures Make You Look Older? A: In our youth our face muscles, skin, bones and teeth develop nicely, altogether in harmony. However, as we age we may run into troubles with losing our teeth and our faces naturally become shorter as a result. The loss of teeth and shortening of the face causes the development of excess skin, muscles, and fat resulting in jowls or folds around the mouth. Traditional dentures do nothing to combat the effects of jawbone resorption, as they are designed to rest on top of the gum tissue, and unable to provide the natural and even pressure the jaw bone is used to before the loss of teeth occurred.
Q: Why Do Traditional Dentures Give You A Sunken- in Look A: Once you lose your teeth, your body thinks your jaw bone is no longer necessary and begins to gradually remove and absorb the bone starting from the outside. This means that traditional dentures put your teeth too far back, and each time your dentures are replaced your teeth move further and further inward. Q: How do Strickland Dentures Give You A Facelift? A: Strickland Facelift Detures provide a solution to our aging faces because they restore our teeth to their full, original height and youthful, forward, and natural positioning. These dentures are placed in a position which builds the bite so the muscles will be able to function at their best, providing the greatest level of facial support needed to achieve stability for a greater facial aesthetic.
Q: Should I get A Surgical Facelift Or See A Local Dentist? A: While a surgical facelift can restore some of our youthful features by cutting away at excess muscle tissue and skin, it will not adequately compensate for the shortened face, which is a symptomatic result of most all tooth loss. If you are seeking a method to restore your face to its original proportions, consulting your local dentist and inquiring about alternatives may be the key to restoring your most natural, youthful appearance without resorting to plastic surgery.
