Cosmetic Dentistry Technology in Missouri

Dentistry Technology - Cosmetic Dentistry

Serving Hannibal and St. Louis, Missouri and Quincy, Illinois areas

We pride ourselves on having the most advanced and cutting edge neuromuscular and cosmetic dentistry technology available. We not only have it, but we know how to use it. As an alum of the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI), Dr. Charles Janes has been thoroughly trained on all of the latest technology that enables him to give his patients the smile they deserve.

Here are a few of the technologies we have in our office:

Empress crowns – Porcelain coverings cemented into place over the entire tooth

MAC lab crowns and veneers – Made from pressed ceramic; twice the strength of traditional porcelain and less irritating to living tissues

Diagnodent cavity detection – This laser-assisted cavity detection device finds cavities that traditional x-rays cannot

K-7 jaw tracking – This cutting-edge technology used in the diagnosis and treatment of temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD) allows us to track your jaw movement with pinpoint accuracy

TENS machine – Another TMD treatment tool; we use the Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator (TENS) to relax your jaw muscles and alleviate pain

Implant restoration – A titanium screw and crown used to restore missing teeth

LVI orthotics – The latest in “occlusal” or “bite” therapy treatment

Soft tissue laser – Used for the painless and suture-free removal of excess gum tissue

MicrO2 Sleep Apnea Appliance – Custom designed sleep apnea appliance that will help comfortably clear your airway while you sleep.

New You Dentures™ – Will provide you with the comprehensive tooth replacement of traditional dentures with the aesthetic benefits of dental implants by using your existing jawbone for support.

Neuromuscular Dentures – Designed to fit into the jaw in a way that optimizes the way the TMJ interacts with the muscles of your face and neck, as well as the relationship they have with your teeth, these dentures are more natural looking and more comfortable than other dentures. There is a focus on function as well as form with these.

Implant Retained Dentures – Implant retained dentures are effective in retaining an otherwise non-retentive denture. Implant restoring dentist, Dr. Charles Janes, places a titanium screw into a hole drilled directly into the tooth. The titanium will integrate, or attach, into the bone after several months, and the implant is then uncovered and a post that pokes through the gums is attached to the implant. The post can support a porcelain tooth or it may support a denture attachment. If you have no teeth at all, a full mouth of implants may need to be attached to porcelain teeth and bridges. Implanted retained dentures are especially effective in patients who cannot wear lower dentures because the addition of these implants in the front of the lower jaw will make it possible to retain a lower denture. Without the implant, this would be impossible for you to tolerate.
