We often see patients who have extensive damage to the teeth and gums. This damage can be caused by trauma, disease, or poor oral health habits. To rebuild the smile, patients can undergo restorative procedures that are designed to treat mild to severe decay and injury. We perform full mouth reconstruction at our Kansas City office to repair broken, chipped, missing, and discolored teeth, as well as to address cosmetic and neuromuscular concerns in one comprehensive treatment plan. If you are concerned about certain aspects of your smile and would like to learn about the different procedures that we offer, please contact our office to schedule an appointment with Dr. John Goodman.
A full mouth reconstruction plan typically combines multiple restorative and cosmetic procedures to achieve a more functional and aesthetically pleasing smile for the patient:
- Gum Disease Treatment - Restoring a patient's gingival health will provide a strong foundation for healthy teeth. Gum disease treatment, either surgical or non-surgical, is often the first step in full mouth reconstruction.
- Dental Implants - Implants are designed to replace the entire structure of the tooth, from root to crown, with the implant itself being embedded in the jawbone and attached to a restoration.
- Orthodontics - Traditional braces can be used to straighten misaligned teeth.
- Restorations - Crowns, bridges, inlays, and onlays can restore structural integrity and appearance of damaged teeth.
- Dental Bonding - Bonding can correct minor cosmetic flaws with a simple procedure; it involves the application of a resin material, which is smoothed into the desired shape.
- Porcelain Veneers - Thin porcelain shells are bonded to the front surface of the teeth to conceal chips, cracks, and slight discoloration. For patients that require minimal preparatory work, same-day veneers may be an option.
- TMJ Disorder Treatment - Temporomandibular joint disorder treatment can be used as part of your full mouth reconstruction to alleviate any pain and restore function to your bite by wearing a specially designed device at night. The mouthpiece prevents your back teeth from touching each other, reducing any clenching and grinding.
Your Initial Consultation
When you come into our office to see Dr. Goodman, we will perform a thorough examination of the hard and soft tissue structures of your mouth. We will then make any recommendations for procedures needed to restore function to your mouth. When the restorative work is decided upon, you will discuss your cosmetic goals and we will put together the appropriate treatment plan.
