QUINCY, Mass.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Regardless of age, tooth loss has a profoundly negative effect on a person’s appearance and self-confidence. After teeth are lost, the gum and jawbone begin to deteriorate creating an aged, sunken-face appearance that traditional dentures can’t fix. Strickland Facelift Dentures™ is the perfect solution for restoring both dental health and a confident smile.
“Know your patient. Know your work. Have it in heart and hand.”
Dr. Stephen J. Matarazzo is proud to be one of only two dentists in Massachusetts who is trained and certified to offer Strickland Facelift Dentures™ to patients. His philosophy of dentistry is “Know your patient. Know your work. Have it in heart and hand.” This philosophy inspires him to use the latest technology to improve the health and lives of his patients.
Dentures are removable dental appliances that are used to replace missing teeth and gums. Traditional partial and full dentures are made in standard sizes and are adjusted and realigned to fit a patient’s mouth.
The problem with traditional dentures is that they don’t take into account the individual neuromuscular dimensions of each patient. The result is that the jawbones do not receive the correct stimulation to help them maintain their shape and function so denture wearers develop a sunken facial appearance.
Strickland Facelift Dentures™ use the principles of neuromuscular dentistry to achieve and maintain an optimum balance between muscle relaxation and jaw function. Neuromuscular dentistry focuses on how to make the hard and soft tissues in the mouth work harmoniously with the muscles and nerves.
Trained dentists like Dr. Matarazzo can determine the correct size, shape, and positioning of the Strickland Facelift Dentures™. The result gives patients the ability to eat whatever they want while enjoying a much younger look – as if they had a facelift but without the surgery.
In addition to restoring smiles with Strickland Facelift Dentures™, Dr. Matarazzo offers general dentistry, implants, veneers, TMJ treatment, and Invisalign®. Complex cases are his specialty. He has also written a series of free downloadable books that educate the public about cosmetic dentistry, implants, facelift dentures, and how to choose a dentist.
