Restorative Services

Preventative Dentistry

Our goal is to always protect your smile from oral health issues before they become a problem. We feel this offers the best chance for a lifetime of excellent wellness for your mouth and entire body.
You deserve a healthy mouth and we are here to help!

Tip for Keeping The Dentist Away...

In between visits, practice optimal oral hygiene. A best practice is to brush 2x per day for 2 minutes.

Sealants

Sealants are thin coatings that are typically placed on the back teeth, or morals, as a preventative measure. Placing sealants is a simple process. First, the tooth surface will be cleaned and etched to create a rough surface for the sealant to adhere to, then a liquid sealant is applied and hardened using a special light.

Why are sealants important?

By getting sealants, you are getting a sturdy, unnoticeable coating that will keep your smile protected for a long time. Typically, sealants are applied during childhood and may last well into adulthood.

Crowns

A crown is a dental restoration that may be used to protect a tooth when it's at risk for a break, to attach a dental bridge, or to restore a tooth after a root canal. Putting off a needed crown, often results in the tooth breaking causing the increase risk of tooth loss.

The Holiday/Weekend Curse

Keep putting off the crown that you need on your cracked tooth? It has been proven that those troublesome teeth BREAK during the most inconvenient times (causing pain & infection)!

Root Canals

Endodontic treatment is necessary when the pulp, the soft tissue inside the root canal, becomes inflamed or infected. The inflammation or infection can have a variety of causes: deep day, repeated dental procedures on the tooth, or a crack or chip in the tooth.

Feel like something is jumping on your last nerve?

Typical signs of needing endodontic treatment are:
Pain, prolonged sensitivity to heat or cold, tenderness to touch and chewing, discoloration of the tooth,
and swelling.


Gum Infection Therapy

Otherwise known as Periodontal Therapy, our hygiene team is passionate about getting your gums back into a healthy state. Our gum infection therapy protocol will help you smile with confidence. Periodontal (Gum) Disease is a Medical issue that must be treated!

The Truth About Gum Disease...

Left untreated, the outcome of severe gum disease can be devastating and has been linked to tooth loss, heart attack and stroke.

Metal Free Fillings

With metal or amalgam fillings, expansion and contraction often take place within the filling, causing cracks in the tooth structure. Our campsite resin fillings completely bond to the tooth. Instead of pushing against the tooth structure like amalgam fillings, metal-free fillings work as a team with your teeth.

We Cater to Cowards!

Don't allow fear to cost you money! Failing to treat small issues (like cavities) will result in larger treatment needed in the future! Larger treatment = increase in expense.

Extractions

Our goal is to always help you preserve your natural teeth by all means possible, but sometimes there are reasons a tooth simply can't be saved. Dr. Wood practices a pain-free injection technique making the process much more comfortable!

Sometime the best and only option.

Even though it is always our goal for you to keep all of your natural teeth healthy, sometimes the tooth just needs to come out. Dr. Wood uses a specialized techniques to keep this process as painless as possible.
