Gingivitis Dentist

Plaque doesn’t sound like such a bad thing. And when it’s kept under control with regular brushing, flossing, and dental visits, it’s relatively harmless. But when this soft, sticky layer of bacteria builds up, it can have serious consequences for your teeth. Dr. Leatha Wood in Grand Havencan remove plaque before it leads to gum disease.

Avoiding the dentist can allow dental problems to compound, leading to tooth loss. At Grand Haven Dental Care we know that a missing tooth is not only unattractive, but it can cause structural problems in your mouth.

Some patients in the Grand Haven area assume that as long as they’re still able to eat without their missing tooth, that there’s no problem. Dr. Wood helps patients understand that just one missing tooth can lead to other oral difficulties. The remaining teeth may begin to drift into the empty space, causing a change in way you bite or chew. It also forces the remaining teeth to carry an additional load, and you may begin to experience pain when you’re eating - or even when you aren’t.

Our goal at Grand Haven Dental Care is to help you enjoy the best oral health possible, whether that’s simply removing plaque during a regular dental appointment or more advanced solutions such as replacing one or more missing teeth. Count on Dr. Wood in the Grand Haven area to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
