The staff of Dogwood Dental Care is dedicated to providing all patients with the highest level of dental care. Our goal is to not only provide you and your family with quality dental health care, but also make sure you are well-informed and knowledgeable about your oral health and how to maintain it for life. We focus mainly on preventative dental care, which helps prevent dental diseases and problems before they occur. In addition to our prevention services, we provide a range of cosmetic and restorative dentistry services.
Dental crowns are a popular restorative treatment, as they restore full function and protection to previously damaged teeth. They are also known as caps, because they fit over the damaged tooth's surface. Porcelain crowns create a seamless, natural look that will improve your smile and boost your confidence.
Dental bridges are placed between two teeth, implants, cosmetic crowns to close the gaps between missing teeth. If you have experienced tooth loss due to gum disease, injury, or tooth decay, then bridges may be used to restore function to your mouth. Bridges can be made from a variety of materials including: alloys, gold, porcelain or a combination of these materials.
Root Canal Therapy
Endodontic or root canal therapy is recommended if the nerve of your tooth dies and becomes infected. During this treatment, the nerve (also known as the pulp) is removed and the canals of the teeth are sealed. This allows the tooth and surrounding tissues to heal from the infection.
Porcelain veneers are made with tooth-colored materials and look and feel like your natural teeth. The restorative material is placed over the tooth's surface to provide protection or improve the aesthetic of a tooth. Veneers can be used as a restorative or cosmetic treatment, and provide a permanent improved look to your smile.
Routine visits to your dentist help us monitor and maintain your oral health. A typical dental cleaning involves diagnostic and preventative services, including removing plaque and calculus from your teeth, polishing your teeth, oral cancer screenings, evaluations for gum disease, and X-rays.
Oral Sedation Dentistry
Do you experience anxiety when visiting the dentist? Oral sedation dentistry involves you taking several tablets or a pill about an hour or so prior to a dental appointment. These sedatives help you relax, and can ease your anxiety in relation to the dentist.
Also known as composite fillings, tooth-colored fillings are used when your teeth need to be restored as a result of decay or fracture. These fillings offer a more natural look than traditional silver fillings because they match the shade of your teeth.
X-rays can reveal problems not visible to the naked eye. They also allow your dentist to track your dental health over time, and are part of a comprehensive, preventative dental treatment plan. They also can reveal irregularities with your teeth, bones, and soft tissues around your mouth.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer is one of the most curable disease, but it can be difficult to diagnose. Many of the symptoms of oral cancer are associated with other medical conditions. Maintaining good oral hygiene and attending regular visits to your dentist are essential to oral cancer prevention.
Implants give replacement or removable teeth a strong foundation and keep them from moving. A dental implant consists of a small, screw-like post (which is surgically inserted into the jawbone) and an implant restoration, which include custom made dentures, bridges, or crowns. Dental implants can help you maintain a strong, healthy, and natural looking tooth structure.
Partial & Complete Dentures
Dentures are constructed to replace missing teeth and to fit snugly into a patient's mouth. These prosthetic devices are specially crafted to fit each individual patient, and are used when patients are missing some or all of their teeth. Dentures help restore function, beauty, and health to your smile.
