About Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease, caused by a buildup of bacteria below the gum line, is the leading cause of adult tooth loss. Routine exams and cleanings can help prevent gum disease, and Dr. Goodman can identify the condition in the earliest stages. We offer many different treatments for gum disease. Options include medicated mouthwashes, scaling and root planing, and topical antibiotics.

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal therapy can treat advanced tooth decay, helping you avoid the need for extraction. Dr. Goodman will remove bacteria, infected tissue, and the pulp from inside your tooth, preserving the healthy exterior. After filling it with a soft, rubber-like substance, he will place a custom crown. Our gentle root canal treatment can ease discomfort and restore the health and function of your smile.

Composite Fillings

If you have a small to medium-sized cavity, a filling will be used to restore the tooth following treatment. Dr. Goodman only uses tooth-colored composite fillings. These fillings will be a near-perfect match to the look of your smile, and can strengthen your damaged tooth. Unlike traditional metal fillings, composite does not expand and contract with temperature fluctuations, and requires less alteration of your tooth.

TMJ Treatment

TMJ Disorder can cause severe jaw, head, and neck pain, and it can greatly impact your quality of life. We typically treat this condition with an NTI (Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition) device. This small, customized oral appliance will fit over your teeth to keep your top and bottom teeth from touching. This prevents grinding and clenching, reduces pressure on your jaw joints, and alleviates painful symptoms.

Traditional Orthodontics

Braces can improve your appearance, oral health, and your systemic wellness. Traditional braces consist of brackets fixed to the teeth, connected with a wire. Dr. Goodman will adjust the tension of the wire over several months. The pressure will gradually straighten and reposition your teeth. Patients of all ages, including adults, can benefit from braces. We also offer Invisalign®, a more discreet alternative.

Dental Phobia

We understand that patients of all ages can experience anxiety related to undergoing dental treatment. When necessary, Dr. Goodman can provide nitrous oxide to help you relax under his care. Patients tell us Dr. Goodman's compassionate, gentle approach has helped them to feel comfortable enough in the dentist's chair to receive the care they need. During a consultation, we encourage patients to let us know how we can help make their experience as relaxed and comfortable as possible.
