Wood Screws

How to tighten wood screws in soft wood frame for heavy door?

We have a heavy door mounted with 3 hinges to a soft wood frame. The door was improperly blocked open with the result that the screws were pulled from the soft wood frame. The screws no longer "bite" into the wood and they cannot be tightened. Are expansion plugs like "molly" the only solution to this? Or, can the screw holes be filled with a wood like material to allow the wood screws to be used again?

an old carpenter trick is to use golf tees [ they are made from a very hard dense wood]. insert them into the screw holes , break them off so they dont stick out and reinstall screws . if this doesnt work use longer screws whihch will extend past door frame into 2x4 . good luck
