First, We are a Comprehensive Care Dental Practice.
Our procedures and treatments are tailored to match the specific concerns of each and every member of your family. Our goal is to keep your entire mouth healthy and strong. Our philosophy provides each of our patients with “A Comprehensive Plan for Ideal Dental Health” that blends the art and science of modern dentistry with the everyday realities of your lifestyle, personal attitudes about health, and your budget.
This treatment philosophy enables us to see your long-term dental picture, creating a plan that will allow for your mouth to be at its healthiest both now, and in the future. Therefore, we focus on 3 basic elements as we develop your customized plan.
1) Healthy Gums
The first thing we focus on at Woodstock General & Implant Dentistry is to make sure every one of our patients has healthy gums. This is done through measuring with a periodontal probe. Without a healthy foundation, other dental care cannot be performed effectively. The published data in multiple studies relates gum disease to a person’s overall health, including heart disease, auto-immune disorders, and many other problems. In our practice, patients visit our hygienists twice a year for dental cleanings. The connection between your overall health and its relationship to healthy gums is given top priority in our treatment sequence.
2) Diligent Prevention
Monitoring your dental health periodically through yearly digital dental x-rays and twice yearly dental examinations, and treatment of your gums and teeth. This philosophy of diligent prevention minimizes the risk of rapid advancement of infection and disease of the gums, bone, and teeth.
3) Restorative Care
Replacing and restoring missing teeth and or fillings in a way that will enhance comfort, function, and appearance. Only biocompatible materials are used. Mercury fillings are not utilized in our practice.
Re-treating areas that may require revisions due to changes in your overall health, accidents, infection, loss of bone, or breakage of materials.
Dental treatment is performed by a dentist that has comprehensive training and focus in specific techniques and procedures. In this way, you receive care from the dentist best suited to meet your needs. Sometimes this philosophy requires us to make a referral to a dental specialist such as a pediatric dentist, endodontist, or oral surgeon. Each specialist utilized by our patients for treatment is a reflection on us, therefore is selected with the utmost consideration.
