How The New You Smile Treatment Can Change Your Life!

You Deserve a Smile That Works

Living with failing and missing teeth affects every aspect of your daily life. From the constant discomfort of broken, decayed, and severely worn teeth to the impact on your social and professional life, your dental health is an important part of your physical and mental wellbeing. You also shouldn’t have to struggle with old-fashioned dentures that slip, shift, click, and fall out. Ill-fitting dentures can cause painful ulcers and even the best fitting dentures limit your food choices.

Natural teeth play a significant role in your oral health and function. When you bite and chew foods, they provide stimulation to the jawbone, helping it remain dense and strong. As teeth are lost, this bone begins to shrink away, and over time will become thin and weak, changing the shape of your face and putting strain on your jaw joint. The only way to reverse this bone loss is through a bone grafting procedure and by providing new, healthy jawbone stimulation with dental implants.

Our team at New You Smile is here to help you regain a healthy and confident life with implant-supported dentures near you in St. Louis, MO. Unlike traditional dentures that rely on suction and unreliable denture adhesives for support, implants for dentures give you the strength, stability, and function old-fashioned dentures can never deliver. Combining years of surgical experience and training with the latest dental technologies, we have what it takes to restore your smile and quality of life with a secure implant denture.

Conventional Dentures vs.
Implant-Supported Dentures

Implant-supported dentures are a revolutionary type of denture that relies on dental implants for stability. These implants are surgically placed into the jawbone and provide a secure foundation for the dentures, which can be either removable or fixed. Unlike traditional dentures, implant-supported dentures offer unparalleled stability and support, preventing them from slipping or shifting while eating, speaking, or laughing. They also provide a more natural look and feel, as they are customized to fit your mouth precisely and are supported by implants that integrate with your jawbone. Moreover, they stimulate natural bone growth, preserving the jawbone and preventing bone loss, which is a common issue with traditional dentures.

While traditional dentures are typically more affordable upfront and can be fitted within a few weeks, they only last up to five years and can limit your dietary choices. Implants for dentures, on the other hand, provide a long-lasting and comfortable solution that can last a lifetime with proper care and maintenance. They are also more cost-effective in the long run and allow you to eat the foods you love without any concerns.

Your Path to Better Quality of  Life

Your path to strong, stable implants for dentures begins with a personalized consultation with Dr. James Fetsch  in St. Louis, MO. We’ll thoroughly discuss how your missing, unsalvageable teeth or ill-fitting conventional dentures are affecting your life, and how you hope overdenture implants can help. Most patients make great candidates for implant-supported dentures. Even if years of wearing an old-fashioned denture have allowed the bone of your jaw to shrink, we may be able to build the bone volume back up, giving you a strong foundation for overdenture implants. During your consultation, we’ll take x-rays and digital scans of your mouth to begin surgical planning and the creation of your new denture.

Once you’re ready for surgery, you’ll rest comfortably with the sedation option that’s right for you while we place your implants for dentures using precision guided surgical techniques. Using a minimally invasive and predictable approach with our All-on-X protocol, dental implants are placed in areas of your jawbone that have the most density and volume, usually in the front portion of your jaw. Depending on your unique case, your denture may be secured permanently in place, or snap onto the implant posts with either a ball or bar attachment for a removable option. Once your surgery is complete, we’ll place your temporary denture so you never have to go without your beautiful smile! Your dental implants will heal over the next three to six months and fuse with your jawbone through a process called Osseointegration. We’ll schedule your last appointment and place your final denture so you can enjoy a permanent and complete smile!

How Will a Stable Smile
Improve Your Wellness?

Implant dentures give you the strength, stability, and function of healthy natural teeth. Permanently fixed implant-supported dentures can withstand 99% of normal biting forces and allow Dr. Fetsch to use stronger, heavier materials with superior esthetics to create the most natural-looking prosthetics possible, with an appearance far superior to the lightweight acrylic used for conventional dentures.

Unlike traditional dentures that rest on the gums and can accelerate bone loss, dentures secured with dental implants stimulate healthy jawbone growth by transferring biting pressure from your gums to the implant posts. You’ll look and feel more confident too, as you regain your oral and overall health with teeth strong enough to bite and chew a healthy variety of foods. Overall, you’ll experience a renewed sense of wellbeing and a boost in your quality of life!

A Dream Smile You Can Afford

Implant-supported dentures cost more initially but will save you both time and money long-term. Traditional dentures require relines and adjustments to remain secure. Beyond the cost of these treatments, returning for these new appliances can require the hassle of multiple appointments. Implant-supported dentures not only last years longer; they will also improve your diet and overall health, leading to a decrease in systemic effects later on. At New You Smile we partner with multiple insurances and third-party financing companies to help make this lasting health investment as affordable as possible. The final cost depends on a few factors including your insurance coverage and the number of implants you receive and what materials best suit your needs. However, we’ll do everything possible to make this truly life-changing care an affordable reality for you!
