Benefits of Full Mouth Reconstruction

Healthier Smile

This comprehensive treatment plan combines two or more restorative dentistry procedures, helping patients achieve and maintain a healthier mouth. We may restore dental decay with fillings or crowns, or address tooth loss with dental implants. We offer a complete range of dentistry services so we can recommend procedures that meet your oral health needs and budget.

Restored Comfort and Function

Whether you have sensitive, loose, or missing teeth, it can take the joy out of eating because it is more difficult to bite and chew certain foods. In addition, conditions such as bruxism and TMJ disorder can cause chronic discomfort. We can address these issues to restore oral comfort and function when your jaw is at rest, and when eating and speaking. 

Improved Appearance

Unfortunately, worn, decayed, missing, and discolored teeth affect how your smile looks. If you feel uncomfortable showing off your smile due to oral health problems, know that full mouth reconstruction has the added benefit of improving the appearance of your smile. We use high quality porcelain materials for our restorations to produce attractive and natural looking results.

Comfort and Safety

Dr. Goodman offers nitrous oxide sedation to reduce discomfort and induce relaxation during longer dentistry treatment plans such as full mouth reconstruction. We understand that many patients are nervous about dental appointments. That is why we aim to make your visit with us as pleasant and stress-free as possible at our clean and inviting Kansas City practice.

  • Bruxism (chronic grinding and clenching)
  • Bone or tissue loss

The Full Mouth Reconstruction Consultation

Dr. Goodman with a patient

During your consultation at our practice, Dr. Goodman will thoroughly assess the health of your mouth. Every case is customized to produce a unique outcome that addresses the patient's concerns and meets their smile goals. Photography and diagnostic wax-ups may be used to help patients visualize possible results and help us refine your plan.

In some cases, a consultation with an oral surgeon is included if tooth extractions, dental implants, or gum surgery are a necessary part of your full mouth reconstruction treatment plan.

If periodontal disease is present, we will treat this condition before performing restorative treatments as oral infection can seriously hinder the results of full mouth reconstruction.

Commonly Combined Treatments

Widely considered the most reliable tooth replacement solution, dental implants restore missing tooth 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.

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.

Bone Grafting
Bone Grafting

In some cases, individuals 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.

Individuals who are missing one or more consecutive 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 in between. Bridges can be supported by natural teeth or secured in place with dental implants.

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 restoration can be crafted, depending on your specific needs. At our Kansas City practice, we offer both traditional and implant-supported dentures.

Other Possible Treatments

In some cases, your full mouth reconstruction treatment plan may be combined with cosmetic procedures such as porcelain veneers or teeth whitening. Porcelain veneers can be placed to mask worn-looking front teeth. Teeth whitening may be performed to whiten any natural teeth that will remain in the mouth so they match the bright, white color of any new restorations. Schedule your consultation to find out if veneers or teeth whitening should be included in your treatment plan.

How Long Does Full Mouth Reconstruction Take?

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 will determine how long your overall treatment takes.

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

The Cost of Full Mouth Reconstruction

Because full mouth reconstruction treatment plans are highly customizable, patients need to come in for a consultation for an accurate quote. In fact, no two treatment plans are exactly the same.

Potential price ranges for some of the most common treatments include:

  • Porcelain Crowns: $1,500-$1,650
  • Dental Implants: $3,000-$5,000 per tooth (including surgical cost)

However, because a full mouth reconstruction is a restorative, medical treatment, insurance may cover a portion of your expenses. Our financial coordinators at our Kansas City practice with work with your dental insurance company to get as much coverage as possible to limit your out-of-pocket costs.
