Dr. Wayne Sutton of Sonoma Smiles in Rohnert Park is pleased to offer Facelift Dentures to his patients. Dr. Sutton is one of the few dentists in California (and the country!) to offer this innovative and effective procedure that is quickly replacing traditional dentures. Facelift Dentures are designed to combat jaw bone resorption that is responsible for the sagging or sunken facial appearance that is experienced by traditional dentures.
The sagging of the face occurs because when the jaw bones lose teeth, the upper and lower jaw bones begin to deteriorate and give the appearance that you are older than you are. Many patients never really learn about the effects of jaw bone resorption until they are experiencing it themselves. When the tooth root structures in our mouth are no longer stimulated as they are by our natural teeth they begin to resorb. Facelift Dentures can prevent this from happening as can dental implants.
The science behind Facelift Dentures is practicing neuromuscular dentistry treatments that seek to achieve and maintain optimum muscle relaxation and function. Each patient will receive a custom-tailored set of Facelift Dentures that provides stability and relaxed muscles that function better than traditional dentures. These relaxed and stable muscles result in the facelift effect that is produced without the use of surgery.
The benefits of Facelift Dentures include:
- Plump lips
- Lessening of wrinkles
- Helps build the face out
- Allows patients to chew better
- Achieve a better fit than all the other dentures
