What Is Oral Reconstruction?

Dental problems, such as missing or damaged teeth, recessed gums, an uneven bite, and weakened jawbones, can impair your ability to eat, speak, and feel confident about your smile. As a highly customizable treatment, oral reconstruction surgery is a combination of procedures designed to repair the teeth, jaws, and face to restore the appearance and function of the mouth. Oral reconstructive surgery at Kansas City Surgical Arts may consist of dental implants, soft tissue grafting, bone grafting, and teeth extraction. We invite you to schedule a consultation with board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeons Dr. Matthew Hlavacek or Dr. Jason Baker in Kansas City, MO to find out more about oral reconstruction surgery and to receive your individual treatment plan.

Oral reconstruction at Kansas City Surgical Arts encompasses a range of surgical procedures aimed at restoring the functionality and aesthetics of the mouth, teeth, and jaw. These procedures are often necessary for patients who have experienced significant trauma, disease, or congenital abnormalities that affect their oral health. The primary goal of oral reconstruction at our Kansas City, MO practice is to enhance the patient's quality of life by addressing issues that impede their ability to eat, speak, and smile confidently. By opting for oral reconstruction, patients can expect a host of benefits that contribute to their overall well-being and self-esteem, including:

  • Improved functionality
  • Enhanced aesthetics
  • Pain relief
  • Prevention of further damage
  • Increased stability for dental prosthetics
  • Better oral health
  • Long-term results

Candidates for oral reconstruction typically include individuals who face significant dental issues that affect their ability to perform daily functions such as eating and speaking. These conditions might include missing or extensively damaged teeth, recessed gums, an uneven bite, or weakened jawbones. Oral reconstruction is particularly beneficial for those who have suffered from severe dental decay, oral diseases, or trauma that has led to substantial damage or loss of teeth and supporting structures. Additionally, patients with congenital defects that affect the mouth and jaw can also be good candidates. The treatment involves a combination of procedures, such as dental implants, bone grafting, and soft tissue grafting, tailored to address the unique needs of each patient to restore both function and aesthetics of the mouth.

How Is Oral Reconstruction Performed?

When you come in for your initial consultation for oral reconstruction surgery at Kansas City Surgical Arts, Dr. Hlavacek or Dr. Baker will conduct an oral examination and talk with you about your dental concerns to build an individualized treatment plan. Oral reconstructive surgery is made up of a series of procedures that are all performed under local anesthesia to ensure you remain comfortable. Depending on your treatment plan and what has been decided, we may provide every procedure during one visit or in multiple appointments. Afterward, you will need some time to heal, which can range from a few days to several months, depending on which procedures were done.

Amazing staff, amazing Dr, and amazing results so far! From consultation to surgery, Dr Hlavacek did incredible. I got my breast augmentation surgery yesterday at 8am and he called me last night at 9pm to check on me. With surgery yesterday, they already look fantastic even with the swelling. To the point my husband said he would have paid double for them 🤣 I can’t wait to see what they look like when completely healed! Thank you all!

Dr.Baker was amazing! I was having issues on the day of surgery and gave him a call up around 10pm not knowing if he was going to answer, but he did and helped me tremendously with getting the prescription I needed right away. We had a little trouble finding a pharmacy so he did some research after our call and gave us a call back about 30 minutes later. He even gave me a check up call in the morning to make sure I was still doing alright. He saved me so trouble by answering his phone that night, can’t say thank you enough.

We were so impressed by Dr.Baker and his staff. I had a small complication prior to surgery , and Dr.Baker himself called me back and helped me. Then when I arrived for my surgery, my driver developed medical issues, and they took care of him as well! They were all so kind and caring, never rushed. Then Dr. Baker called back in the afternoon to check on both of us! I would give the very highest recommendation to anyone I know needing oral surgery.

Kansas City Surgical Arts is the best. The WHOLE staff is amazing and caring. It starts with setting up a consultation all the way through your procedure and follow ups. The front desk ladies, patient coordinator (Hannah) to nursing, (Bella, and Kim) and of course Dr. Hlavacek (the best), care so much for their patients. I would highly recommend KC Surgicial Arts.

Will I be in pain after dental reconstruction surgery?

It is normal to experience some discomfort after oral reconstruction surgery, but it can be managed with pain medication prescribed by our surgeons at Kansas City Surgical Arts. We will also provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery. These guidelines include information on how to care for the surgical site, what foods to eat, and when to resume normal activities. Our team will also closely monitor your healing during follow-up appointments.

Can I eat normally after oral reconstruction surgery?

Your eating habits may need to be modified during recovery, depending on the procedures involved. For example, if dental implants are placed, you may need to stick to soft foods for a certain amount of time until they fully integrate with your jawbone. Once you have fully healed, you should be able to eat and enjoy your favorite foods again in Kansas City, MO.
