What Are New You Dentures?
New You Dentures are created using the principles of neuromuscular dentistry, which seeks to make sure the jaw muscles, temporomandibular joints and teeth are aligned and working properly. As a result, New You Dentures can help restore a more youthful facial contour.
Missing teeth often result in shrinkage of your jawbone. In fact, as much as 50-75% of your jawbone can deteriorate when your natural teeth are no longer anchored in place. This creates a ‘sunken in’ appearance that cannot be corrected by traditional dentures.
New You Dentures utilize your existing jaw bone as the foundation for a cantilevered denture. They are custom-crafted in order to restore your original jaw profile and facial contours, providing you with a more youthful, vibrant appearance to match your beautiful new smile.
There are three types of New You Dentures:
