Root Canal Therapy
Root canals are a common restorative procedure that can save unhealthy teeth from further decay and removal. In most cases, root canals can be done non-surgically by removing the diseased pulp and cleaning and sealing the root canal. Even though the normal source of vitality including blood and nerve supply has been removed from the tooth, it can remain in the oral cavity and save the patient from more expensive and invasive alternatives like dental implants and dentures.

Periodontal Disease Therapy
Gum disease especially in the early stages can often have no noticeable symptoms. This makes routine dental cleanings much more important because a trained clinician can diagnose gingivitis. At Weldon General and Cosmetic Dentistry, we utilize the latest in laser treatment to arrest and cure gum disease.
In many cases, gum disease can be arrested and reversed with a thorough cleaning by the hygienist and adequate home care following the cleaning. In other situations, more aggressive treatment is indicated. Dr. Weldon has the ability to treat these cases up to and including laser therapy. There are many degrees of gum disease and if you would like a thorough consultation and analysis, we encourage you to reach out today!
Dentures & Partials
Dr. Daniel Weldon, of Weldon General and Cosmetic Dentistry, is an Ocala dentures specialist who is highly qualified to evaluate your teeth, gums and bone to provide a recommendation regarding the need or indication for dentures.
Dentures are one of several treatment methods for the replacement of missing teeth. In addition to the teeth, dentures replace what is missing from the surrounding supporting structures (gum tissues). There are two main variants of dentures; complete dentures which replace all of the teeth in the upper and/or lower arch and partial dentures which are designed to replace some of the missing teeth. Dentures can be utilized when teeth are missing from tooth decay, periodontal disease, or trauma. The results can be transformative and can provide a return to necessary form and function. Weldon General & Cosmetic Dentistry offers a myriad of teeth replacement options for the residents of Ocala and surrounding communities. To learn more, Click here!
Weldon General & Cosmetic Dentistry performs many extractions for residents of Ocala and the surrounding areas. When a tooth is severely decayed, irreparably broken, or impacted, you and Dr. Weldon may decide it will be most beneficial to have the tooth extracted. Maintaining healthy natural teeth is one goal in dentistry but the extraction of a tooth or teeth at times is inevitable.
We believe that there is no replacement for healthy natural teeth. We attempt to save teeth in every situation. When extractions are necessary, we will make every attempt to provide this treatment in a comfortable, relaxed, and caring environment.
Fillings & Restorations
Unless you understand the cavity, you will not fully understand the filling. Dentists use the term restoration when speaking about fillings because the goal is to restore the tooth to it’s original form and function. A cavity is formed by tooth decay. Tooth decay is created when the bacterial content in the mouth alters the oral environment. The acidity in the environment pulls the minerals out of the tooth structure. As a result of this, the tooth is weakened and eventually breaks down. It is called “tooth decay” and that is a great description of the problem.
We are dedicated to promoting oral health to the residents of Ocala and surrounding communities. If at any point you would like to discuss the best ways to prevent dental decay, we would love to meet with you. Feel free to contact us today!
