Implants and Overdentures
Dr. Wood replaces lost or missing teeth with state-of-the-art implants or implant-supported dentures that look, feel, and function like your natural teeth. An implant consists of a titanium post (“root”) permanently anchored to your jawbone, where crowns or dentures can then be attached to complete the procedure and establish the natural look.
We offer the following dental implant systems:
- All-on-4® Dental Implants
- Implant-Retained Overdentures
Laser Gum Surgery
Dr. Wood might suggest using cutting-edge soft tissue lasers to perform a gingivectomy, helping combat the signs of gum disease. With this advanced technology, our dentist can provide a wide range of gum treatments delivered with heightened precision and control.
Laser treatments are also preferred by most patients because they tend to be faster and less painful than conventional and surgical gum treatments.
Root canal treatment is performed to remove infected areas of the soft, inner section of the tooth, also known as the pulp. When these areas become infected, it can cause significant pain, and eventually death of the entire tooth. A root canal can allow for proper healing and further strengthening of the tooth.
Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation®
Did you know Dr. Wood is the only dentist in Grand Haven, MI offering the Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation® technique? This procedure consists of using a needle to make small holes in the gum line, allowing Dr. Wood to guide the tissue into a proper position over the tooth for rapid, comfortable results.
This minimally invasive treatment is designed to correct gum recession and involves no cutting, stitching, or scalpels, which means significantly reduced pain, swelling, and bleeding. The Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation procedure is known to be a top solution for correcting gum recession in a single visit! If you're in need of precise, effective gum recession therapy, Dr. Wood at Grand Haven Dental Care is here for you.
Grand Haven Dental Care works to detect when root canal therapy is needed to stop an infection in its tracks before it has the chance to spread through the bloodstream to the rest of the body. After treating the infection, Dr. Wood will top off the tooth with a luminous, natural-looking dental crown.
A frenectomy is a simple procedure that can help patients who experience a reduced range of motion of their lips or tongue or a gap between their teeth caused by a frenum, which is a piece of connective tissue that joins two areas together. If one frenum or multiple frena are too tight or small, you might not have proper range of motion for your tongue and lips, or your teeth may be pushed out of alignment. Dr. Wood can use a frenectomy to fix these issues and promote healthy smile development.
Tooth extractions can be performed in an emergency procedure after trauma or injury, or to prevent a future problem from developing.
Dr. Wood provides extractions for patients who are experiencing pain and discomfort or who have an infection caused by a tooth that is damaged beyond repair. In some cases, a surgical extraction may be required, but simple extractions can be performed when the tooth still appears above the gum line. Before any extraction, Dr. Wood will conduct a thorough dental exam and take digital x-rays to determine the extent of the damage.
