General Dentistry

As the leaders of your dental care team, Drs. Wooddell and Passaro create and manage your treatment plan. Working with our hygienists and other team members, they will complete a comprehensive dental exam, identifying any factors that could contribute to the deterioration of your oral health.

The majority of dental treatments aim to prevent or treat the most common oral diseases – tooth decay and gum disease. Common treatments involve restorative and esthetic procedures such as fillings and tooth whitening and periodontal therapy.

We have done our very best to provide our community with a comprehensive dental practice where they can have every dental need met. From complex restorations and complete cosmetic overhauls to general dentistry.

Dental Fillings

Everyone does their best to keep their teeth happy and healthy, but sometimes even us dental specialists forget to brush our teeth! It’s alright, certainly not the end of the world, but it can have some negative repercussions if you forget often enough. When your smile suffers because you forget to brush your teeth, most often it comes in the form of tooth decay or cavities.

Bad bacteria live in your mouth and feed on the sugars and acids left over from the meals that you eat. Throughout the day they accumulate until finally, at the end of the day they are brushed and flossed off of the surfaces of your teeth and gums. If you don’t brush and floss them off, they will eventually eat away at the enamel on your teeth. Once a cavity forms, the only way to fix it is to remove the decay and place a filling.

We are proud to offer tooth colored fillings that match the esthetic of your tooth perfectly and keep your smile looking great!

Teeth Whitening

Many people ask us what the best way to cosmetically restore their smile is and our answer is simple – teeth whitening! With teeth whitening we can turn back time and give your smile the extra glimmer that keeps it looking fresh and beautiful.

Don’t be fooled by over-the-counter teeth whitening solutions that take months to lighten your teeth by only one shade. We can perform a professional tooth whitening procedure in under an hour and brighten them by any number of shades safely and consistently. We are confident that you will be pleased with your new smile.

Periodontal Therapy

One of the least talked about oral health issues is gum disease. Chances are that you have heard about gum disease but you might not understand exactly what it is or how it can affect your mouth.

In the same way that the bacteria that live in your mouth can cause an infection (cavity) of your teeth, it can also cause an infection of your gums. When your gums are infected they can easily cause drastic issues with the overall health of your mouth that can lead to lost teeth and even bone loss.

Fortunately, we offer periodontal therapy for those who are suffering from late stage periodontal (gum) disease.
