Full Mouth Reconstruction Procedures – Kailua-Kona
Dental health matters can prove rather complex, requiring multiple treatments and multiple visits to properly address. Our Kailua-Kona cosmetic and restorative dentistry practice routinely performs such complex rehabilitative procedures, which are better known as full mouth reconstructions. Dr. Carter Yokoyama will use all of the tools at [his-her-their] disposal to give you the smile that you have always wanted.
Various Treatment Options for Your Needs
Full mouth reconstructions are not a one-size-fits-all solution. In fact, every patient will present his or her own unique dental health and dental care needs. When you visit our Kailua-Kona practice, Dr. Yokoyama will perform a comprehensive examination and assessment of your dental health. Doing so will allow us to figure out the best combination of treatment to restore and rehabilitate your smile. Below are some of the most common full mouth reconstruction procedures that are performed.
One of the most common and well known dental treatments is the placement of fillings. Dental fillings are used to replace tooth structure that has been damaged by decay. With new composite/ceramic tooth-colored fillings, you no longer need to worry about unsightly metal altering the appearance of your smile. Learn more about dental fillings.
Inlays and Onlays
For more substantial amounts of tooth decay or tooth damage, the best option for restoration is the use of inlays or onlays. Inlays and onlays are like larger dental fillings and can help replace large portions of tooth structure, including the cusps.

Major tooth damage and tooth decay can be best addressed through the use of dental crowns at our Kailua-Kona practice. This full mouth reconstruction procedure can effectively restore the strength and appearance of a tooth while protecting it from further harm.

When you are missing a few teeth, an ideal option for tooth replacement is dental bridges. A dental bridge will span the gap between teeth, clasping around your remaining tooth structure in order to remain firmly in place.

When you are missing many teeth, one of the best options for effective tooth replacement is dentures. Dentures can replace an entire row of teeth and are held in place by gripping onto your gum and jawbone structure.

Dental Implants (Implant Dentistry)
When you are missing a tooth or multiple teeth, a great restorative dentistry option to consider at our Kailua-Kona practice is dental implants. Implant dentistry will involve the surgical placement of artificial tooth roots that can be used to support various kinds of dental restorations, including dental bridges and dentures.

The health of your gums is extremely important when it comes to achieving optimal dental health. There are many different kinds of periodontal therapy available that can effectively treat gum disease, gum recession, and other problems related to the soft tissues of the mouth.

Root Canal Therapy
A root canal may be the only way to save a tooth that is severely decayed or damaged. The treatment will involve the removal of injured dental pulp and will help restore the overall appearance and health of your smile.

TMJ Disorder (TMD) Treatment
If you experience some clicking, popping, or locking of the jaw, it’s important to consider undergoing TMJ disorder treatment. A TMJ disorder treatment will target the root cause of the TMJ disorder, restoring your overall dental health in the process.
