Several Different Options to Replace Your Teeth in St. Louis

Dental implants are our most recommended tooth replacement option. Dental implants are anchored to your jawbone, allowing your restorations to look and function just like natural teeth. You never have to worry about your restorations falling out because they’re secured in place.

Dental bridges are an older tooth replacement option that replaces your missing tooth or teeth. Dental bridges use two dental implants or two natural teeth as anchors to secure the bridge. This option easily replaces your missing teeth with or without needing dental implants.

Implant dentures are full dentures secured to the jaw using dental implants. The support of dental implants allows the dentures to function and feel just like natural teeth. In some cases, dental implants are used primarily for retention. This means they hold the dentures in place but the dentures still feel function like a traditional denture.

FOY ® Dentures are new denture technology that uses neuromuscular dentistry to improve the function and fit of dentures. Since they support your facial structures, they may even rejuvenate your facial appearance.

Traditional & Partial Dentures replace an entire arch of teeth. They are false teeth held by suction and supported by your gums. Although they are attractive, they may not fit or function as well as other tooth replacement options at our St. Louis dental office.

Why You Should Replace Your Missing Teeth

When you lose a tooth or several teeth, it’s important to replace them. Here’s why you should replace your missing teeth with help from Dr. Chris Hill at Smile On Dental Studio.

First, you should restore your missing teeth to restore the appearance of your smile. All of our tooth replacement options can help you achieve a natural-looking smile you can’t help but show off. Restoring your smile will not only help you look great, but it will help you maintain your self-confidence.

You should also replace your missing teeth to restore the function of your bite. Even one missing tooth can throw off your entire bite. All of our options will help maintain the function of your bite seamlessly. FOY® Dentures may actually help you achieve a bite that’s better than your bite before you lost your teeth since it incorporates neuromuscular dentistry into the mix.

Replacing your missing teeth helps support your facial structures. When teeth are worn and lost, or jawbone diminishes it can change your facial appearance. You may notice your face begin to droop and more wrinkles begin to develop. Jowls and turkey neck may also appear as a result. Replacing your missing teeth with FOY® Dentures or dental implants is the best way to support your facial structures.

Lastly, you should replace your missing teeth to protect your remaining teeth. When you don’t replace a tooth, it’s common for the surrounding teeth to move into the empty space. This can result in crooked teeth, or even wearing down your teeth since your bite is thrown off. Don’t sacrifice the health of your remaining health, choose a replacement tooth.
