A Wide Range of Preventive Treatments
There is a range of preventive treatments that can help you maintain the health and hygiene of your teeth. From X-rays to thorough cleaning jobs, here’s how you can ensure that your teeth are always in an immaculate condition with these preventive treatments:
Root canal infections are characterized by sharp pain and sensitivity. It is widely perceived that root canal treatment is extremely painful. On the contrary, it relieves pain. With the advancement of technology, root canal treatments have become virtually painless. When you get a root canal done, the infected pulp is removed from the inside of your teeth, which only affects your perception of hot and cold, protecting your tooth for its main purpose, i.e. chewing. We also offer crowns to protect your treated tooth.
Most gum diseases are preventable and even reversible. Depending on the severity of the issue, adequate treatment methods will be advised that will help get the correct gum treatment and enjoy optimal oral health.
Dr. Glenn McKay at Rockwood Dental Group performs simple tooth extractions on teeth that are visible in the mouth, usually under local anesthesia and require only the use of instruments to elevate and grasp the visible portion of the tooth. Surgical extractions involve the removal of teeth that cannot be easily accessed, either because they have broken under the gum line or they have not erupted fully (such as impacted wisdom teeth). Our office would refer you to an oral surgeon in these cases for specialty dental care and would follow up with you at a future appointment.
A denture is a removable dental appliance replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissue. They are made to resemble your natural teeth closely and may even enhance your smile. We offer both full and partial dentures to meet our patients’ varying needs. While full dentures work best for old people or patients with no teeth, partial dentures can be used by people who still have some teeth remaining and require replacement for the missing teeth only.
At Rockwood Dental Group, we can provide you with conventional dentures that are applied once the gum tissue has healed or immediate dentures that are created in advance so that they can be fitted right after the procedure and you don’t have to go without teeth. We will provide you with adequate care and cleaning instructions as well for proper hygiene.

Custom-fitted Sports Guards and Night Guards
A single blow to the mouth or jaw can cause serious dental damage that is very painful and expensive to treat. You can minimize the risk of this type of injury by using a mouthguard when you take part in sports and other recreational activities. Mouthguards are easy-to-use appliances that fit over your teeth. When worn during sports activities, mouthguards help protect against injuries to the teeth and other areas in and around your mouth.
Wearable day or night, a custom-fitted night guard acts as a bumper guard, absorbing the force of the clenching or grinding. While horseshoe-shaped, over-the-counter night guards are also available, they tend to be uncomfortable and are so soft that they may get chewed away. In addition, over-the-counter night guards do not account for occlusal discrepancies that may be the source of your bruxism problems, thus making your grinding and clenching problem worse. Custom-fitted nightguards, made of hard acrylic, can help bruxers avoid such problems.
