A Plan For Several Dental Problems
What is a full-mouth reconstruction? Instead of being a treatment, it’s a collection of treatments.
Restorative dentistry treatments do just that — they restore your teeth. That means repairing damage, relieving pain, and making sure you can use them normally. After getting restorative dentistry, your smile will be its old self again.
Normally, if you have a damaged or problem tooth, you get a treatment to fix it. But what happens if you have several problems? That’s where a full-mouth reconstruction comes in. Our dentists work with you to create a plan by listing all the restorative dentistry treatments needed to get your smile back. This way, you know what needs to happen and when.
In addition, this plan makes sure your treatments are done in the right order. There’s no need to get a filling put in a tooth that’s going to be covered by a dental crown. Full-mouth reconstructions can save you time and money this way.
Call us today at 816-399-5539 and schedule your initial appointment. You have a thorough dental exam to clearly identify the problems that need fixing. Then you’ll talk to our dentists and explain what you’re experiencing. Together, you’ll select the parts for your full-mouth reconstruction.
Parts Of A Full-Mouth Reconstruction
The Dental Care Center of South Kansas City offers a wide range of restorative dentistry treatments. That’s so you have options. Here are some of the treatments you can include in your full-mouth reconstruction.
If you’re missing a tooth, you need a replacement. Not only does your smile look odd, you need all your teeth to chew properly. Dental implants feature a beautiful but tough replacement tooth held firmly by an artificial tooth root. This gives dental implants amazing stability and durability.
Not everyone’s jawbone is healthy enough for a dental implant. That’s why our highly skilled dentists can use a dental bridge instead. There’s no surgery with this treatment. Two dental crowns are placed on the teeth next to the gap. Then a replacement tooth is put in place and bonded to those crowns.
When a tooth is damaged, it looks bad and can cause you discomfort when chewing. Dental crowns are caps designed to match the teeth they cover, only bright and healthy. They seal up any damage on a tooth and add a layer of protection to it.
Similar to dental crowns, dental veneers are covers for just the front of your teeth. Since that’s the side everyone sees, it makes sense to cover them with a lifelike shell. Dental veneers also seal up any damage on that side of your teeth.
A toothache is often a sign you have an infected tooth. Root canals (which are not painful!) are used to get rid of that infection. This does more than end the toothache. These infections weaken your teeth until they need to be removed, so root canals can save your teeth.
Cavities are avoidable, but they are also very common. At our Kansas City, MO dental office, you do not have to get unsightly metal fillings. Instead, you can get tooth-colored fillings that blend in with your teeth. These repair damage caused by cavities just as well.
Dental implants and dental bridges are great at replacing a single lost tooth, but what if you need a lot more replaced? Then you get dentures. Modern dentures are better looking and fitting than ever before. You can replace a few teeth in a row or even a full arch. Plus, you can secure your dentures with dental implants so they will never fall out.
