Rejuvenating, Permanent Dentures
Fountain of Youth Dentures
Do you suffer from ill-fitting, uncomfortable dentures? Do your standard dentures leave your face with a sunken-in appearance? Are you embarrassed by slipping dentures when you eat, talk, or smile? The Dental Designs by Quandt team can help!
Dr. Scott Quandt offers an advanced cosmetic dental procedure for his denture patients called Fountain of Youth Dentures. With the Fountain of Youth Dentures technique, Dr. Quandt uses advanced aesthetic and neuromuscular dental technology to create comfortable, permanent dentures that provide ideal fit and function while greatly improving appearance at the same time.
Comfortable Dentures Created with a Neuromuscular Approach
Dr. Quandt has been using neuromuscular dentistry to create more beautiful smiles for people for many years, as taught by the Las Vegas Institute and Myotronics. Now, the same neuromuscular techniques can be used to create a higher-quality denture smile. Dr. Quandt has been trained in both Fountain of Youth Dentures and NewYou Dentures, each of which are cosmetic neuromuscular dentures designed to take years off your facial appearance.
Traditional dentures rely on motionless impressions on which to fabricate the dentures. Instead, with the Fountain of Youth Dentures technique, Dr. Quandt takes a neuromuscular impression while your muscles are in motion. This type of impression ensures that your dentures will fit more naturally and comfortably while you’re eating or talking.
This neuromuscular approach also helps Dr. Quandt determine the ideal height and biting position for your teeth. The right height of dentures is important to the fit, function, and aesthetics. The neuromuscular approach also aids in forming a better fit and seal for your dentures compared to traditional types.
Rejuvenate Your Look with Fountain of Youth Dentures
Unlike standard dentures, Fountain of Youth Dentures are fabricated to the ideal height so you can say goodbye to the sunken-in appearance your dentures give you now. Fountain of Youth Dentures are designed to support your lips and cheeks for facial fullness, taking years off your appearance.
Additional benefits of Fountain of Youth Dentures include advanced materials used in constructing the denture, which provides aesthetic advantages over traditional denture materials. High-quality porcelain teeth give these dentures a more natural appearance with the luster of real tooth enamel. The base of the denture is also customized with a special layering technique for a more natural-looking gum line.
Permanent Dentures in Green Bay, WI
Fountain of Youth Dentures can also be implant-supported for many patients. If you are considering dentures, you may want to consider implant-supported dentures. With implant-supported dentures, dental implants are placed into your jaw bone and connected to the denture. The implant will fuse to the bone, creating a solid foundation to which your dentures are secured. There are several techniques, and Dr. Quandt will discuss which treatment plan would be best for your personal needs.

How do I take care of my dentures?
Taking care of dentures is important, especially if you want to get the most out of your investment and continue enjoying your restored smile for years to come. Fortunately, this task is easy:
- Take out your dentures every night before you go to sleep and store them in a cup of room temperature water.
- Clean your dentures using special denture-cleaning products that are soft and non-abrasive.
- Never clean your dentures with regular toothpaste or a normal toothbrush.
- Always make sure that you have a non-slip surface to place your dentures on after you clean them.
- Rinse your dentures after each time you eat.
- Bring your dentures to your semi-annual checkups with your dentist in Green Bay.
- Make sure to clean your gums regularly to prevent harmful bacteria accumulation.
Can I eat what I want with dentures?
As a new denture wearer, you may find it difficult to chew certain foods, like steak or crusty bread. This is a typical experience for patients who are building up their cheek and facial muscles and getting used to using their dentures. During this adjustment period, we recommend avoiding foods that are hard, sticky, and chewy. We also suggest cutting your food up into smaller, more manageable bites as you’re getting used to your restorations.
How do I know when my dentures need to be adjusted?
After wearing your dentures for years, you may notice that they don’t fit you as they once did. In these cases, we recommend visiting our office to make sure that they are properly fitted to your smile and fully functional. Some signs that you should look out for if you’re experiencing this issue include:
- You have difficulty speaking
- Painful or bleeding gums
- Bad breath or a strange taste in your mouth
- Difficulty eating or swallowing
- A clicking noise when you eat
Keep in mind that these may be common signs for patients who have just gotten their dentures and are adjusting to wearing them, but it isn’t for patients who have been wearing and using their dentures without problems for years.
