Sleep Apnea Treatment

Problems Caused by Sleep Apnea
The problem of sleep apnea is often the result of blocked airways, which can have several causes including the position of the tongue, the size and shape of the airways, or the swelling of those passageways. Not only can disrupted sleep affect a patient’s mood, it can also affect their health.

While people with sleep apnea think they are resting, their body may be struggling for air and they won’t even know it! As a result, they never achieve the important deep, restful sleep so necessary to good health. People never feel refreshed and are often tired throughout the day.

Stress on the body and decreased oxygen levels in the blood may cause:
High blood pressure
Abnormal heart rhythms
Heart attack
Stroke
Diabetes
Depression
Inability to concentrate
Uncontrolled weight gain

We see hundreds of patients with sleep apnea at our Clayton and downtown St. Louis dental offices. Many say that after starting sleep apnea treatment with an oral appliance from Dr. Hill, their lives are transformed because their energy is restored.


Sedation Dentistry

With oral conscious sedation, patients take medication that allows them to stay calm, comfortable and in control. Patients elect to receive oral sedation with their dental treatment for a number of reasons. Some of these reasons include:

Completing their entire treatment in 1 or 2 visits
Bad gag reflex
A traumatic experience from a previous dental procedure
Complex dental treatment
A high anxiety of dentists and/or a fear of needles
Embarrassed of their smile


Teeth Whitening

City Smiles offers a variety of teeth whitening options to fit your lifestyle at our offices in downtown St. Louis and Clayton. We believe that teeth whitening is a safe and effective way to enhance your smile and give it that extra “pop” that you are looking for. Your appearance can affect you socially, emotionally, and even in business success. People who smile with confidence are viewed as warm, inviting, and beautiful. Now, with teeth whitening options from City Smiles, Dr. Chris Hill can help you achieve the pearly whites of magazine models and movie stars.


Replacement of Missing Teeth

Missing Tooth Replacement Options

We currently offer many options for replacing your missing teeth. These are:

-Dental implants
-Dental bridges
-Implant dentures
-FOY ® Dentures
-Partial dentures
-Traditional dentures

Dental implants are usually considered the best tooth replacement option. Anchored in the jaw bone, dental implants can look and function just like natural teeth. They never have to come out and allow you to eat all the foods you enjoy.
Dental bridges are an older tooth replacement option, but they’re still good. Most of the time, when we talk about bridges, they’re supported by your natural teeth. However, dental implants can support a dental bridge.

Implant dentures are dentures that are attached to dental implants. Implant dentures can be supported by implants, which lets them function like natural teeth. Other times, implants are used for retention: they hold the denture in, but the denture still functions largely like a traditional denture.

FOY ® Dentures are a pioneering denture technology that uses neuromuscular dentistry to improve the fit and function of dentures. They have the ability to rejuvenate your facial appearance by better supporting your facial structures.

Partial dentures are designed to replace a few teeth. They are made up of fake teeth attached to support structures that fit on the floor or roof of your mouth. They are also supported by wires, clasps, or other structures that encircle your natural teeth.

Traditional dentures are designed to replace all the teeth in an arch. They are false teeth set into a base. They are held in by suction and supported by your gums. They can be attractive, but fit and function are not as good as other options.


Dental Veneers

Your first visit with Dr. Chris Hill is a consult to discuss your smile makeover. You will get a chance to see “Before and After” photos of Dr. Chris Hill’s work. He will also discuss your individual smile and how porcelain veneers can be used to give you the smile that you have always wanted. In some instances, Dr. Chris Hill can even create a digital image of what your smile could look like.

Once you have decided that dental veneers are right for you, in just two visits after your consultation, Dr. Chris Hill can give you the smile of your dreams. After the first visit, you will walk out of our office in temporary veneers that often get mistaken for the real thing. This will allow you to “test-drive”.

Smile Makeovers

Not only do smile makeovers make your smile look brilliant, but they also allow for optimum dental health. Cosmetic dentistry advancements make it easy to perform all the procedures necessary to obtain the perfect smile. Dr. Chris Hill uses cosmetic imaging and laser gum treatment to create an aesthetic smile for you.

The staff at City Smiles emphasize the aesthetic aspect in all their work because they know that when your smile looks good, you feel good! With a multitude of options and advanced procedures, there’s simply no reason you can’t have the perfectly beautiful, natural-looking smile you’ve always wanted. We even use laser dentistry to help eliminate pain, to enhance the cosmetics comfortably.


Tmj

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, called TMJ or sometimes TMD for short, can present through a myriad of symptoms. TMJ disorder requires care from a doctor with deep understanding of your jaw joints. This is why many general practice physicians do not identify TMJ problems earlier and treat symptoms rather than the root cause of the problem. St. Louis neuromuscular dentist Dr. Chris Hill is a TMJ expert who focuses on identifying the root cause of the problem and relieving pain without drugs and without surgery.

If you suspect you have TMJ or if you have TMJ symptoms that aren’t resolving under your doctor’s care, please call (314) 375-5353 (Downtown St. Louis) or (314) 678-7876 (Clayton) today for an appointment with Dr. Hill at our office in downtown or Clayton.


Non-Surgical Facelift

If you notice a sunken look in the lower third of your face, you might be a good candidate for a non-surgical facelift.

To custom design the best non-surgical facelift for your personal needs, Dr. Chris Hill works with you to identify the areas where you would most like to see improvement. Then, he uses proven dental care techniques to refine your facial appearance without surgery.

Since Dr. Hill uses dental techniques to lift your face and enhance your natural attributes, you also get the benefit of a more beautiful smile. That’s one great bonus!

Non-surgical facelift clients always meet one-on-one with Dr. Chris Hill at City Smiles Clayton or City Smiles St. Louis, before we start any work. During your consultation, Dr. Hill uses digital imaging technology so you can see what your results will look like before you commit to care.

Would you like to learn how a non-surgical facelift might help you look younger and give you a beautiful smile, please call (314) 375-5353 (Downtown St. Louis) or (314) 678-7876 (Clayton) today for an appointment with St. Louis cosmetic dentist Dr. Hill at City Smiles.


Full Mouth Rehabilitation

As we age, our bodies begin to show signs of deterioration. Our teeth are no different.

Teeth can be affected by many factors including old dental restorations, cavities, trauma, clenching/grinding, and acid reflux to name a few. All, or even some of these factors, can lead to an unattractive, aging smile that is not as functional as it should be.

At City Smiles Clayton and City Smiles St. Louis, Dr. Chris Hill combines cosmetic dentistry and restorative dental care to improve your oral health and enhance the appearance of your smile. After all, a healthy smile is a beautiful smile!

With full mouth dental rehabilitation no two patients receive the same treatment. Dr. Hill customizes care to precisely fit your needs. To get started with your full mouth rehabilitation, please call (314) 375-5353 (Downtown St. Louis) or (314) 678-7876 (Clayton) today for an appointment with Dr. Hill at our office in downtown St. Louis or Clayton.


Orthodontics

Straight teeth are the foundation of a terrific smile.

Did you know properly aligned teeth are also healthier?

Overlapped, crooked, or rotated teeth create a daily cleaning challenge. Food and bacterial plaque accumulate slowly in the tiny spaces that your toothbrush and floss can’t reach. Misaligned teeth are more likely to decay, connected to inflammation, and can contribute to periodontal disease, a bacterial infection of your gum tissue. Helping even a couple straggling teeth find their proper place makes your mouth healthier.

Straightening teeth isn’t just for kids! Adults often make the most dedicated orthodontic patients, and it’s never too late to discuss the options for a bright, straight smile. If you’re not sure wires fit your tolerance level, don’t worry. Invisible methods can work extremely well for many cases, and Dr. Chris Hill can help you explore the possibilities.

To get started on your orthodontic treatment, please call (314) 375-5353 (Downtown St. Louis) or (314) 678-7876 (Clayton) today for an appointment with cosmetic dentist Dr. Chris Hill.


Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry serves to remedy the effects of decayed, damaged, cracked, chipped, worn, or unsightly teeth. These necessary treatments is that our treatments will improve the appearance of your smile as well as help you regain your oral health.

Your dental health affects your overall well-being. Decay, damage, and disease can jeopardize your smile and put you at risk for health complications. City Smiles offers a variety of restorative therapies to renew your smile and improve your quality of life.


General Dentistry

Good oral health is the foundation of both an attractive smile and good overall health. General dentistry is focused on maintaining and restoring the health of your teeth. General dentistry consists of both preventive and restorative dentistry.

Customer Testimonials

Excellent care, understanding, professionals!!! The best experience I have had at a dental office!!


I love this place! They’re so friendly. Brenda is so helpful and super sweet. She gave the best advice and she’s very personable. I will definitely recommend this dentist office to any one in need of any service that they offer.


I used to be afraid to go to the dentist, but after going to City Smiles I am no longer afraid of going to the dentist. The staff members are very professional and friendly. We have laid out a game plan for my dental work and I am very satisfied.


I am very impressed with City Smiles. They really treat their patients special each and every time. They do little things that go along way such as bring you a blanket and a warm pillow if you have a lengthy service. The entire staff is very pleasant and kind. I don't get impressed very easily and they impressed me. I highly recommend that you visit City Smiles. I never thought I would enjoy going to the dentist but I do now! 5 stars!!!


Absolutely could not recommend a better place. Everyone is so professional and friendly. They make the experience a great one.


By far the best dental office I've ever experienced. Friendly-educated staff, super clean!


I had problems with a couple of teeth. It turned out to be a sensitivity problem. Dr. Hill and his assistant spent a long time explaining the problem to me and offered several options for treatment. As always when I leave his office, I feel I've had the most professional group of people taking care of me. Thanks!


The service is terrific. I love this place and recommend it to everyone.
