Fountain Of Youth Dentures
Looking for a dentist in Fort Lauderdale to get FOY® Dentures done expertly? Come to the Kodish Dental Group
Can you really get facelift results with a denture? Yes! FOY® Dentures have been described as the fountain of youth for denture wearers. Although FOY® Dentures offer many advantages over traditional dentures, perhaps the main reason why people choose them over traditional dentures is that they make denture wearers look younger.
Unknown to most patients who experience tooth loss are the issues that occur as a result of not having teeth in the form of jawbone deterioration. The bone material that the tooth root is attached to is accustomed to physical stimulation that is produced by normal behaviors of biting and chewing. As long as natural teeth are in place and disease is absent, our upper and lower jaws can be expected to remain healthy and intact. However the loss of our teeth and their former replacement —traditional dentures that are designed to rest on top of the gum tissue — do not provide the natural and even pressure the jawbone is used to, and thus do nothing to combat the effects of jawbone resorption, resulting in patients who look much older than they actually are.
FOY® Dentures are designed to provide even pressure across the gums and jawbone by creating a better fitting denture that rests partially on the muscles. They are placed to build the bite at a position that the muscles will best function; the same position that provides the greatest facial support and works to achieve stability and greater facial aesthetics.
Why Traditional Dentures Make You Look Older
When we are young, our face develops all together, all in harmony: the skin, muscles, bones, and teeth. As your teeth wear down and eventually are lost, your face gets shorter. This makes it look like you have excess skin, muscles, and fat, which results in:
- Folds of tissue around the mouth
- Jowls hanging down below the jaw
- Hanging skin under the chin (turkey neck or turkey wattle)
Traditional dentures don’t try to restore your teeth to their full height, so they don’t reverse these symptoms of aging.
Why Traditional Dentures Give You a Sunken-In Look
Traditional dentures are designed knowing they won’t fit well. They have to overcome this by putting the teeth in the most stable position possible, which means directly over the bone in your jaw. Once you lose your teeth, your body thinks this bone isn’t necessary and gradually removes it, starting from the outside. This means that traditional dentures put your teeth too far back, and each time you replace your dentures, your teeth move further and further inward.
How FOY® Dentures Give You a Facelift
The principle behind FOY® Dentures is simple: replacing teeth in their youthful proportion will make you look more youthful. In FOY®Dentures, your teeth are given their original height.
Because FOY® Dentures fit so well, your teeth can also be placed in a natural, youthful, forward position. This means you won’t get the sunken-in look that is common in denture wearers.

Best Dentist Ever! Completely resolved all of my TMJ issues and my teeth look fantastic!
My experiences have been very positive. Dr. Kodish is well versed on the latest procedures and technology and his staff is equally as competent as well as being supportive.
Besides the expertise at dentistry, Dr. Kodish and his staff are totally up to date with all the latest technology. AND they are super nice people. Going to the dentist is not usually high on the things people enjoy doing, but I always look forward to going to this office.
