Cheek Plumper: A Unique Way to Enhance Facial Aesthetics
International Journal of Research and Reports in Dentistry,
Masseter and buccinators are the major muscles of the cheek & the major function of these muscles is chewing of foods. In younger age, these muscles are supported by teeth. In old age, this support is lost due to loss of teeth & there is a loss of tonicity of the facial musculature leading to the sunken & slumped cheeks & gives the unaesthetic appearance.
Incomplete denture, this unaesthetic appearance is improved by attaching cheek plumper to the distobuccal flange area that gives support to cheek muscles & improves aesthetics.
In literature, they have used magnet & various customized attachments but they have disadvantages. This clinical report describes the press button attachment to attach cheek plumper to denture &it gives support for sunken cheeks.
