Neuromuscular dentures are a great solution if you've had many or all of your teeth extracted, and need a partial or full denture to replace them. While you may be surprised that an office with a focus on cosmetic dentistry makes dentures, we believe this is one of the most valuable and life-changing services we offer at VivaSmiles.
What is different about our dentures?
To the best of our knowledge, VivaSmiles is the only office in the Greater St. Louis Area offering neuromuscular dentures. These dentures are beautiful in appearance and function properly. They fit exceptionally well without embarrassing slippage.
The process of creating an exact fit involves using the TENS unit (Transcutaneous Electro Neural Stimulation) to completely relax the muscles of your face, jaw, and neck so that we can determine what is the natural physiological resting position of the mandible.
The aesthetic part of finalizing your denture design is where art comes into play. The same zeal and expertise we devote to cosmetic dentistry we apply to producing dentures with a natural and pleasing look. Even the smallest details are studied—size of various teeth, angle at which they are set, the golden proportion ratios of height to width, shade and color. The end result is a denture that functions and looks great. With a neuromuscular denture you will be able to speak, eat and smile with complete comfort and confidence.
We also offer implant-supported dentures including overdentures and the all-on-four bridge implant-supported dentures. Using our 3-D CAT scan we can plan the entire implant procedure using computer models and with the aid of a surgical guide, we can place the implant-supported dentures in an ideal position. The healing process with this procedure can be significantly faster and in many cases the denture is ready for function the same day. With these dentures you will start rocking, not your dentures!
