Periodontics (Gum Treatment)
Rodney D. Hood D.D.S. also specializes in periodontics which is the treatment of gum disease, such as gingivitis and periodontitis. Our dentist is a certified periodontist who will perform a periodontal exam and come up with a periodontal treatment plan to meet your needs.
Exams can include periodontal probing and X-rays. Treatment often consists of scaling and root planing and sometimes periodontal surgery, laser surgery, or graphs. Untreated periodontal problems can lead to loss of your teeth and a decrease of inflammation in your body. We perform periodontal screening exams at each visit.
Dental implants are also offered.
Root canals are used to treat abscesses, toothaches, tooth pain, and swelling. A root canal replaces a bad nerve in a tooth, prevents tooth loss, and also keeps you out of pain. At Rodney D. Hood D.D.S., we will make sure that you are anesthetized during a root canal procedure so you don't feel any discomfort.
Rodney D. Hood D.D.S. offers emergency dental care. If you have a toothache, pain, swelling, denture emergency, or any other dental emergency, call us so we can schedule you for an exam. We can usually provide same-day appointments for emergencies.
