Lawrence Henry Schoonover, DDS
Dr. Larry Schoonover DDS is an outstanding dentist. I have never had a dentist come close to the professionalism and care that he provided. My entire family uses his practice. I will recommend him to anyone. He is a skilled professional that cares about his patients and their well-being. It would be worth the drive if not from Clendenin, WV.As a dental surgeon, Dr. Schoonover is exceptional. He recently handled the removal of my wife's teeth. I could not have asked for better care for her. He helped her navigate all of the emotional hurdles associated with loosing/replacing all of her teeth. He even got her to quit smoking (an unbelievable task). This was not "crappy teeth in a day...fast food service window" treatment, he took painstaking measures to properly size, align, color match, and ensure functional alignment. After the first fitting he made multiple minor adjustments to ensure a PERFECT FIT. I was truly impressed with his perfectionism and professionalism.

I have been a patient of Dr. Schoonover for many years. When going to his office I always feel so welcome. His staff are very friendly and glad to see me. Dr schoonover is an excellent Dentist. He does it all in his office. He wants to help you be happy with your smile. I have implants and crowns and I'm very pleased with them. My smile is everything I ever wanted it to be. Everyone compliments me on how pretty my teeth are. I would recommend Dr. Schoonover to anyone that is having a dental issue or is not satisfied with your smile. He's always willing to listen to what you want and try to make it happen for you.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
