  • Dentures

    Dentures are replacements for missing teeth that can be taken out and put back into your mouth. While dentures take some getting used to, and will never feel exactly the same as one’s natural teeth, today’s dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.
    There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. Your dentist will help you choose the type of denture that’s best for you based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced and the cost involved.

  • Invisalign

    Your Invisalign® clear aligners are custom-made for you. The aligners are virtually invisible and fit snugly over your teeth.

    Each aligner shifts your teeth slightly, moving them horizontally and vertically and even rotating them when needed. Your aligners are engineered to use the right amount of force in the right place at the right time.
    When you change to the next set of aligners (typically every week) your teeth gradually move into position, following a custom treatment plan mapped out by your doctor.

    Only Invisalign clear aligners are made of a proprietary, multilayer SmartTrack® material to gently shift your teeth into place.

  • Scaling & Root Planing

    Although routine cleanings are done to prevent periodontal (gum) disease, scaling and root planing is a non-surgical procedure done to treat periodontal disease. In fact, this procedure – sometimes called a deep cleaning – is considered the “gold standard” of treatment for patients with chronic periodontitis.
    Healthy gum tissue fits tightly around each tooth, measurement from the top of the gumline to where it attaches to the tooth should only be 1 to 3 millimeters in depth. But, when bacterial plaque and tartar accumulate around and under the gums, tissues that support your teeth may be affected and periodontal disease can develop causing deeper pockets to form.
    When you have more advanced signs of gum disease (bad breath, heavy tartar buildup and unhealthy pocket depths of 4mm or more), your dentist may recommend scaling and root planing as the first procedure necessary to treat the condition.

  • Canine Exposure

    In some cases, removing the baby canine can create enough space for the adult tooth to drop into position. This would usually be done around 10-13 years of age. However, this does not guarantee correction or elimination of the problem. The tooth should be monitored and, if not corrected or improved after a year, additional treatment should be undertaken.
    Exposure and bonding involves uncovering the impacted tooth and bonding an orthodontic attachment to it, then replacing the gum tissue over the tooth. The attachment is connected to a gold chain that is used to apply gentle traction to coax the tooth into position.

  • Frenectomy

    A frenectomy is simply the removal of a frenum in the mouth. A frenum is a muscular attachment between two tissues. There are two frena (the plural form of frenum) in the mouth that can sometimes obstruct normal function and are candidates for frenectomies.

  • Sleep Apnea

    We are one of the few dental practices in Kansas City that have an Eccovision Acoustic Diagnostic Pharyngometer which provides valuable information about airway size and stability. It is a highly useful tool for titrating oral appliances for sleep apnea. This takes away the guessing!

  • Wisdom Teeth

    We advise our patients the best options for your wisdom teeth.

  • Extractions

    The phrase, “like pulling teeth,” was first used in the early 19th century, and correctly captured the historic difficulty in removing teeth. The good news is that times have changed, and receiving oral surgery can be done comfortably and with ease. And while many dentists will send you to a specialty office for your oral surgery needs, True Dental Group provides these services in office so you don’t have to drive around town for the treatment that you need.

    So whether you need a single broken tooth removed, or all four of your impacted wisdom teeth extracted, we’ve got you covered. If you happen to be anxious about getting a tooth removed we can help. Sometimes all you need is some nitrous oxide, or an anti-anxiety prescription, and you’ll be ready for your surgical procedure.

    We are also happy to introduce Dr. Marrion Harris D.D.S. Dr. Harris is a dentist currently serving as an Oral Surgery Resident at Truman Medical Center and he currently works part-time for TDG helping us to meet all of the surgical needs of our patients.

  • Extraction Site Preservation

    An onlay is generally larger and covers one or more cusps of the tooth

  • Dental Implant FAQ’s

    How much do Implants cost

    associated with greater initial investments, in many cases dental implants may offer a more economical solution in the long term.

    The initial costs of an implant treatment vary depending on several factors:

    • The number of implants needed.
    • If additional surgical procedures are required.
    • The costs of the surgery, lab work and the prosthesis.
    • The dentist’s and dental technician’s fees.

    Will the procedure be painful?

    Dental implants are generally inserted under local anesthetic to help minimize discomfort during the operation. Patients could experience temporary symptoms like pain, swelling and difficulty speaking.

    Patients experiencing any concerns about the condition of the implant site after the procedure should consult their dentist immediately.

    What is the age group for implants?

    Provided that the patient does not display any significant medical risk factors, there is no age limit for dental implants; however, dental implants can only be used in young patients once their jaw bones are fully developed.

    How long do implants last?

    Dental implants are designed to be a permanent replacement solution. Long-term research has shown that Implants have a high survival rate.

    How will I care for my implants?

    Just like natural teeth, implants require regular check-ups and conscientious oral hygiene. With appropriate care, the long-term function of implants can be maintained.

    Your dentist will guide you on cleaning and hygiene measures.

    Are there risks involved?

    Depending on medical or other conditions of each patient, potential risk factors will vary.
    Every surgical procedure carries potential risks. You should always consult with a dental professional prior to treatment. Potential risk factors may vary depending on medical or other conditions of each patient. For example, poor oral hygiene or limited healing of the wound due to pre-existing conditions (e.g. diabetes, osteoporosis) may reduce the odds of the implant remaining in place.

    Contraindications

    Inadequate bone volume and/or quality, local root remnants, serious internal medical problems, uncontrolled bleeding disorders, inadequate wound healing capacity, not completed maxillary and mandibular growth, poor general state of health, uncooperative, unmotivated patient, drug or alcohol abuse, psychoses, prolonged therapy-resistant functional disorders, xerostomia, weakened immune system, illnesses requiring periodic use of steroids, uncontrollable endocrine disorders. Allergies or hypersensitivity to chemical ingredients of materials used: titanium (Grade 4) or titanium-zirconium alloy.

    Cautions/Precautions

    A careful clinical and radiological examination of the patient should be performed prior to surgery to determine the psychological and physical status of the patient. Special attention should be given to patients who have local or systemic factors that could interfere with the healing process of either bone or soft tissue or the osseointegration process (e.g., bone metabolism disturbances, previously irradiated bone in the head or neck area, diabetes mellitus, anticoagulation drugs/hemorrhagic diatheses, bruxism, parafunctional habits, unfavorable anatomic bone conditions, tobacco abuse, untreated periodontal diseases, acute infection of implant site, temporomandibular joint disorders, treatable pathologic diseases of the jaw and changes in the oral mucosa, pregnancy, inadequate oral hygiene).

  • Dental Implant

    A dental implant is a titanium post (like a tooth root) that is surgically positioned into the jawbone beneath the gum line that allows your dentist to mount replacement teeth or a bridge into that area. An implant doesn’t come loose like a denture can. Dental implants also benefit general oral health because they do not have to be anchored to other teeth, like bridges.

  • Implant Supported Dentures

    An implant-supported denture is a type of overdenture that is supported by and attached to implants. A regular denture rests on the gums, and is not supported by implants.

    An implant-supported denture is used when a person doesn’t have any teeth in the jaw, but has enough bone in the jaw to support implants. An implant-supported denture has special attachments that snap onto attachments on the implants.

    Implant-supported dentures usually are made for the lower jaw because regular dentures tend to be less stable there. Usually, a regular denture made to fit an upper jaw is quite stable on its own and doesn’t need the extra support offered by implants.

  • Veneers

    Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin that are custom made to fit over teeth, providing a natural, attractive look. They can be used to fix chipped, stained, misaligned, worn down, uneven or abnormally spaced teeth.

    Why Veneers?

    For teeth that are severely discolored, chipped or misshapen, veneers create a durable and pleasing smile. Plus, veneers are difficult to stain, making them popular for people seeking a perfect smile.

  • Bonding and White Fillings

    A composite (tooth colored) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by decay, cracks, fractures, etc. … Composite fillings, or bonding, can be a great alternative to more invasive dental treatments.

  • Bonding and White Fillings

  • Whitening/ Bleaching

    Are you looking for a quick, non-invasive way to enhance your smile? Teeth whitening might be the answer.Universally valued by men and women alike, whitening (or bleaching) treatments are available to satisfy every budget, time frame and temperament.

    The long and the short of it is that it works. Virtually everyone who opts for a teeth whitening solution sees moderate to substantial improvement in the brightness and whiteness of their smile. That said, it’s not a permanent solution to discoloration and requires maintenance or “touch-ups” for a prolonged effect

  • Root Canal

    A root canal is a treatment to repair and save a badly damaged or infected tooth. The procedure involves removing the damaged area of the tooth (the pulp), cleaning and disinfecting it and then filling and sealing it. The common causes affecting the pulp are a cracked tooth, a deep cavity, repeated dental treatment to the tooth or trauma. The term “root canal” comes from cleaning of the canals inside the tooth’s root.

  • Root Canal Retreatment

    With proper care, even teeth that have had root canal treatment can last a lifetime. But sometimes, a tooth that has been treated doesn’t heal properly and can become painful or diseased months or even years after treatment. If your tooth failed to heal or develops new problems, you have a second chance. An additional procedure may be able to support healing and save your tooth.

  • Bridges

    Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

    A bridge is made up of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap — these two or more anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth — and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.

  • Crowns

    A crown is used to entirely cover or “cap” a damaged tooth. Besides strengthening a damaged tooth, a crown can be used to improve its appearance, shape or alignment. A crown can also be placed on top of an implant to provide a tooth-like shape and structure for function. Porcelain or ceramic crowns can be matched to the color of your natural teeth. Other materials include gold and metal alloys, acrylic and ceramic. These alloys are generally stronger than porcelain and may be recommended for back teeth. Porcelain bonded to a metal shell is often used because it is both strong and attractive.

  • Partials

    A removable partial denture usually consists of replacement teeth attached to a pink or gum-colored plastic base, which is sometimes connected by metal framework that holds the denture in place in the mouth. Partial dentures are used when one or more natural teeth remain in the upper or lower jaw

  • Sealants

    Dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating painted on the chewing surfaces of teeth — usually the back teeth (the premolars and molars) — to prevent tooth decay. The sealant quickly bonds into the depressions and grooves of the teeth, forming a protective shield over the enamel of each tooth

  • Laughing Gas

    Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose to help you relax. Nitrous oxide, sometimes called “laughing gas,” is one option your dentist may offer to help make you more comfortable during certain procedures.

  • Dental Hygiene

    6 things a dental cleaning can do for you

    1. Prevent cavities
    The whitish film that builds up on your teeth is called plaque and is the leading cause of tooth decay. This acidic substance eats away at the tooth enamel and, if left unattended, can lead to cavities. Plaque can be removed by brushing, flossing and dental cleanings.

    2. Stop tooth loss
    Gum disease, which starts with built-up plaque, is a major cause of tooth loss in adults. As gum disease advances, plaque moves further down the tooth where it can destroy the supporting bone in your jaw, causing teeth to loosen and fall out. Luckily, the chance of this happening to you can be greatly reduced through regular dental cleanings combined with good oral hygiene habits.

    3. Brighten your smile
    Drinking coffee, tea and wine or using tobacco can stain your teeth. A dental cleaning can remove built-up stains and leave you with freshly polished teeth. The result? A whiter, brighter smile!

    4. Freshen your breath
    Good oral hygiene is the best way to prevent persistent bad breath. Even if you brush and floss regularly, getting a cleaning is a great way to keep your mouth healthy and odor-free.

    5. Boost your overall health
    Studies have shown a connection between oral and overall health. Regular dental cleanings may help lower your risk for some diseases, like heart disease and stroke. Many medical conditions, some of them life-threatening, can be detected in their early stages by your dentist during a routine oral exam.

    6. Save money
    Get the most value from your dental benefits. Most Delta Dental plans have low or no copayments/coinsurance for dental cleanings and oral exams. If you take advantage of your benefits now, you may be able to save money in the long run by helping to protect your oral health and potentially avoiding more costly and extensive procedures.
