Popular Full Mouth Reconstruction Procedures
A full mouth reconstruction is a comprehensive treatment plan designed to correct any problems affecting the health and appearance of your teeth, gums, and bone. If you need multiple dental procedures to address concerns throughout your mouth, you may be an ideal candidate for a full mouth reconstruction. When you meet with skilled Kansas City cosmetic dentist John P. Goodman at our practice for a consultation, we’ll determine if a full mouth reconstruction is right for you, and customize a complete dental plan to meet your personal smile goals.
Our Most Popular Restorative and Cosmetic Treatments
When Dr. Goodman determines that a full mouth restoration is the best treatment method, we offer a wide range of full mouth reconstruction procedures to successfully treat any dental concerns, from minor cavities to missing teeth. Popular procedures recommended in order to correct your smile and improve the health of your mouth may include:
Dental Implants:The most advanced option available for the restoration of missing teeth, a dental implant provides a permanent and aesthetically pleasing replacement tooth. Dr. Goodman has achieved beautiful results for our Kansas City dental implants patients, who are also pleased with the resulting comfort and functionality the procedure offers. Dental implants are surgically secured in the patient's jawbone, preventing neighboring teeth from shifting position and undermining the bone structure. A dental implant can be used to anchor a single replacement tooth, a dental bridge, or a denture.
Dental Bridges:When a patient has one or more missing teeth in the front or back of the mouth, a dental bridge can fill in the empty gaps as well as maintain the mouth’s structural integrity. Dental bridges work by anchoring a replacement tooth to the teeth surrounding the space with natural-looking porcelain crowns, which can be attached to a patient’s existing teeth or dental implants.
Porcelain Crowns:A tooth that is broken, decayed, or cracked can be repaired with attractive results using a porcelain crown. Our crowns are crafted from high-quality white porcelain, a stronger and less damaging alternative to older metal restorations. Our custom crowns blend seamlessly with surrounding teeth, giving you a naturally beautiful, sturdy smile.
Inlays and Onlays: Rear teeth that are too decayed to be successfully treated with a filling can be fitted with a porcelain inlay or onlay. Designed to cover the top surface of a tooth, an inlay or onlay will have a natural appearance with outstanding durability, and can last for decades with regular care.
Root Canal Therapy: If tooth decay has reached the tooth’s pulp (inner tissues), root canal therapy cleans and disinfects the tooth, saving it from extraction. Root canal therapy is performed with local anesthesia to ensure the patient is free from discomfort during the procedure, and will eliminate the throbbing pain that often accompanies an infected tooth. After root canal therapy is performed, the tooth can be covered with a porcelain crown for increased longevity and chewing strength with an aesthetically-pleasing look.
