When all of the teeth in an arch have been lost due to trauma or decay, the focus turns to the most suitable form of replacement. For many years, traditional dentures that sit atop of the gums were the only option for full replacement. Although function and aesthetics could be restored to some extent, there are certain issues with traditional dentures that could be eliminated.
At Lawrence Dental Solutions, we offer Fountain Of Youth Dentures, which provide the denture wearer with the necessary support of facial structures, creating a more vibrant and youthful appearance by:
- Plumping lips
- Decreasing wrinkles around the mouth and chin
- Filling in facial contours to prevent a sunken-in look
When compared to traditional or economy dentures, which are attractive mainly due to their lower cost, Fountain Of Youth Dentures come with the benefit of a truly customized technique that allows the patient to continue eating foods that he or she loves, without the concern of dentures slipping or falling out, or feeling uncomfortable against the gums. In considering the cost of Fountain Of Youth Dentures vs. economy dentures, we encourage patients to weigh the long-term benefits of this alternative treatment.
Naturally, the teeth are connected to the jawbone by their roots. When the teeth are lost, the subsequent stimulation to the alveolar bone (the area of the jawbone that acts as the anchor for teeth) ceases, leading to the resorption of bone tissue. The timing of this process is different from person to person, but typically begins immediately after losing teeth.

Fountain Of Youth Dentures are designed to rest in part on the muscles of the mouth, providing not only a more reliable fit, but also an improved appearance, greater facial support, and continual stimulation to the jawbone so that resorption is slowed if not halted altogether.
