Preventive Dental Care

Preventative dentistry is all about taking proactive steps to ensure optimal dental health and prevent common issues such as tooth decay, gum disease, and oral infections. By embracing preventative measures, you can save yourself from the pain, discomfort, and expenses associated with extensive dental treatments.

At Woodyard Dental Care, Dr. Jonathan Woodyard, the best dentist in Paducah KY, provides exceptional care for your oral health.

Dental Cleanings, Exams
And X-Rays

Checkups are recommended every 6 months for a healthy mouth, and every 3-4 months for those with Periodontal Disease/Gum Disease.

Examinations should occur at least once a year, depending on your past history of cavities.

X-Rays should be taken between every 6 months to 3 years depending on your past history of restorations and how regularly you visit the dentist for exams.

Periodontal Disease/Gum

Disease


Periodontal disease occurs when plaque builds up below the gum-line and starts to pull the gums away from the roots of the teeth. It has been linked to diabetes and heart disease.

Mouthguards For Teeth Grinding


Bruxism (teeth grinding) can cause long-term damage to teeth, from moderate to severe. Constant grinding wears down the surface of the tooth, exposing the soft dentin beneath the enamel.

Oral Cancer Screening

Dr. Jonathan Woodyard can talk to you about your health history and examine these areas for signs of mouth and/or throat cancer. Regular visits to Woodyard Dental Care can improve the chances that any suspicious changes in your oral health will be caught early, at a time when cancer can be treated more easily.

Sealants

Dental sealants are tooth colored and made from polymer or glass ionomers and bond to the deep grooves in the back teeth (molars) to prevent decay.

Testimonials

Dr. Woodyard has been my general dentist for more than 10 years and he’s always been so concerned and professional. He is up to date on all the newest innovative treatments. He has done several crowns for me and I was able to get it all done in one day since they were made with the latest technology in house by Dr. Woodyard. I would highly recommend him for all dental needs.

Best dentist I've been to! Very professional operation in all respects. Love that Dr. Woodyard does the majority of usual procedures right in house -- including crowns and root canals. Getting a crown in one visit is truly amazing. Mary is a wonderful hygienist with a solid knowledge of her area of expertise. You won't be disappointed!
