John P. Goodman DDS

Restore Your Oral Health with Full Mouth Reconstruction

Patients with several missing teeth or significant oral decay do not need to give up on their smile. They can restore their appearance and function with full mouth reconstruction at our Kansas City, MO dental practice. This comprehensive treatment combines two or more restorative procedures, helping patients achieve and maintain a healthier, more attractive smile. John P. Goodman DDS offers nitrous oxide sedation to reduce discomfort and induce relaxation during significant procedures such as full mouth reconstruction. 

Who Is a Candidate?

Anyone who has experienced significant oral health issues can benefit from full mouth reconstruction. This personalized treatment can address concerns such as:

  • Tooth decay
  • Missing teeth
  • Fractured or broken teeth
  • TMJ disorder
  • Bruxism (teeth grinding)
  • Bone or tissue loss
  • Misalignment and malocclusion

During your first consultation at our practice, Dr. Goodman will thoroughly assess the health of the teeth and gums. If periodontal disease is present, we will treat this condition before pursuing any of the restorative treatments listed above as oral infection can seriously hinder the results of full mouth reconstruction. 

Dr. Goodman can help you select the treatments which will be most effective for your smile.

Commonly Combined Treatments

Full mouth reconstruction is uniquely catered to the needs of each individual. However, some of the most commonly combined treatments include:

  • Dental implants: Widely considered the most reliable teeth replacement solution, dental implants restore missing roots. These medical-grade titanium posts are placed into the jawbone during an oral surgery procedure. Once the initial healing period is over, implants can be restored with crowns, bridges, or dentures.
  • Bone grafting: In some cases, patients may not qualify for dental implants due to bone loss sustained over the years. Bone grafting is a preparatory procedure offered at our practice which can significantly increase your bone density and volume. This treatment improves patient eligibility for dental implants. 
  • Crowns: Small cavities can usually be repaired with dental fillings. However, when damage or decay is more extensive, a crown may be necessary. These custom-crafted restorations are placed over the entire tooth structure, offering reinforcement and strength for a healthier smile. Crowns can be fabricated from a number of materials. Many patients choose tooth-colored materials that blend in naturally with their smile. 
  • Bridges: Patients who are missing a row of teeth can fill the space with a dental bridge. Used in dentistry for decades, this restoration includes two crowns on either side with artificial teeth (pontics) in between. Bridges can be supported by natural teeth or secured in place with dental implants.
  • Dentures: If you are missing most or all of your teeth on the upper arch, lower arch, or both, dentures could be the solution for you. A full or partial prosthesis can be crafted, depending on your specific needs. At our practice, we offer both traditional and implant-supported dentures. 

Personalized Care for Optimal Results

Because each treatment plan is designed to accommodate the needs of the patient, every full mouth reconstruction will be different. The procedures recommended for you by Dr. Goodman will determine how long your overall treatment will take.

Full mouth reconstruction is uniquely catered to the needs of each individual.

For example, an individual who is receiving three dental crowns and a few fillings will complete their treatment much faster than a patient who is receiving an implant-supported denture. During your consultation, Dr. Goodman can offer an estimated treatment timeline.
