The Denture Fountain of Youth in Cleveland, TN
If you’re one of the 36 million Americans looking for a way to replace all your teeth, there are many different denture options to choose from. Traditional dentures have been a staple in restorative dentistry for centuries, but they come with several problems. Common issues include poor fit that worsens over time and continual bone loss that changes your facial appearance. Luckily, other options are available that can address severe tooth loss. One option is The Denture Fountain of Youth.
What Is The Denture Fountain of Youth?
Fountain of Youth Dentures, or FOY Dentures, offer a modern solution to the common challenges of traditional dentures, including issues with fit and bone loss. Traditional dentures, like the ones your grandparents might have worn, were not designed to work with the muscles or structure of your face. They were simply placed in the mouth without much thought for how they fit. On the other hand, FOY Dentures are designed to move with you. This innovative approach ensures a more natural fit and prevents jawbone deterioration from long-term denture use.
How Does The Denture Fountain of Youth Work?
The Denture Fountain of Youth® system relies on neuromuscular dentistry. Instead of accounting for just your teeth, neuromuscular dentistry considers your entire facial structure as an interconnected unit. Your muscles, joints, and teeth affect each other, and FOY Dentures are designed to work with them all. When we take impressions, we stimulate your facial muscles, enabling us to capture your full range of motion and create dentures that fit more securely and facilitate smoother speaking and eating. This method also helps preserve your jawbone’s density by distributing biting forces evenly, reducing the risk of bone loss associated with traditional dentures.
Our dentists will shape your Fountain of Youth Dentures to ensure you maintain your proper facial structure. This attention to detail ensures that your dentures will improve oral function and give you a more youthful appearance. FOY Dentures are considered “cosmetic dentures” because they support the natural contours of your face, lift sagging facial muscles, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth. This approach restores the proper proportion and symmetry to your face, often resulting in a more vibrant and youthful look. By meticulously tailoring the dentures to fit the unique structure of your jaw and facial muscles, we help to recreate the natural support your face would have with a full set of natural teeth, effectively turning back the clock on your appearance.
The Issue With Poorly-Fitting Dentures
Using traditional dentures comes with challenges, such as frequent professional adjustments, messy adhesives, and an unnatural appearance and feel. But the biggest issue remains their poor fit. Loose or “floating” dentures cause many problems, including:
- Soreness and irritation: Traditional dentures lose their fit over time. Once they no longer sit snugly along the gums, they cause irritation and discomfort as they slide around.
- Difficulty eating and speaking: Challenges in eating and speaking arise when your teeth lack stability, leading to speech difficulties. Additionally, consuming certain foods, such as steak, apples, and corn on the cob, can become nearly impossible.
- Unexpected embarrassment: Floating dentures come with the constant risk that they may shift or even come out of your mouth at the most inconvenient moments.
While The Denture Fountain of Youth offers a better, more stable fit, implant dentures with mini dental implants facilitate the greatest level of stability and functionality.
Implant Dentures Offer Superior Stability
The best way to keep dentures from moving in your mouth is to attach them to dental implants. These titanium posts are secured directly into your jawbone and provide a sturdy base for your dentures. Implant dentures come in both removable and non-removable varieties, depending on your preferences. They also look, feel, and act more like natural teeth than other options.
If getting dental implants makes you nervous, mini dental implants could be a reassuring option. Their small size makes mini implants an excellent option for those who have already experienced bone loss. They also offer a less invasive approach, which means there’s no need for cuts or traditional surgery. Impressively, it’s possible to get these implants and have your new teeth attached all in one visit. The recovery period is also remarkably swift, allowing you to use your new teeth right away.
Mini implant dentures not only offer immediate results but also contribute to your long-term oral health. They’re designed to stimulate your jawbone like natural tooth roots, helping to prevent further bone and facial tissue loss.
While the mini implant process is very quick, your implant dentures will last you for many years, thanks to their high-quality materials. These factors make implant dentures supported by mini implants a practical and economical choice compared to other tooth replacement methods. Less time in the dental chair and superior materials translates to cost savings for you.

Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, we can attach FOY Dentures to dental implants, offering a solution that combines beauty with stability. At your consultation, we’ll evaluate the condition of your jawbone to determine whether dental implants are right for you. If your jawbone doesn’t have the density needed to support conventional implants, mini dental implants may be a viable option since they require less space in the jawbone.
While FOY Dentures will slow jawbone atrophy, they will not stop it. The best method for preventing bone deterioration following tooth loss is to replace the missing tooth roots with dental implants. As prosthetic roots, dental implants stimulate the jawbone to keep it strong and healthy.
It’s a common misbelief that dentures make someone look older. However, that’s far from the truth. Dentures help support and maintain your facial structure, helping the wearer look younger. Implant dentures will also stimulate the jawbone and prevent bone loss that can lead to facial sagging.
