Our Dental Services
Comprehensive Dental Examination & Oral Cancer Screening
During your regular visits, our dentists and/or hygienists provide a thorough examination of your mouth, teeth, and gums, checking for signs of gum disease, inflammation, and bleeding. Early detection of oral cancer or other tooth and gum disease is critical for their successful treatment.Because smoking is linked to various cancers and other dental complications, we work to educate you on healthy choices. It is recommended that you come in for a screening annually.
Prevention Cleaning and Gum Therapy
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” goes the old adage. Regular hygiene sessions are critical for the maintenance of good oral health. Scale and polish helps keep your teeth clean, removes surface stains, and keeps your breath fresh. Having your teeth cleaned professionally can prevent tooth decay and gum disease. Prevention is the key to a beautiful smile and, more importantly, a healthy mouth.
Cavity Prevention and Fillings
While regular visits to the dentist improves oral health, cavities may still occur. Fillings can help repair damaged and decayed teeth, allowing you to keep your tooth longer. Fillings also stop the cavity from getting larger, which helps prevent the need for an extraction or root canal treatment. We can also remove silver amalgam fillings and replace them with white fillings.
Temporomandibular Joint Disorders Therapy helps treat the symptoms of TMD, such as jaw pain and clicking, popping sound in the ears, stiff or sore jaw muscles, headaches, and locking of the jaw joint. The causes of TMD include clenching or grinding the teeth, arthritis, or jaw injury. After you consult with a sleep physician, we can help manage the condition with an approved OSA ( Obstructive Sleep Apnea ) appliance or a regular clenching appliance. Depending on the diagnosis . We may also discuss other therapies as well as educating you on reducing the behaviours that contribute to your discomfort or condition.
Sleep Disorder Therapy and Treatments
Many Canadians suffer from Sleep Apnea and many more have symptoms and risk factors that put them at a higher risk of developing the condition. Because this condition means the affected individual stops breathing at regular intervals throughout the night, he/she ends up chronically tired. Once a diagnosis is made at a sleep disorders clinic, we can help ease your symptoms. We can create a custom-made OSA ( Obstructive Sleep Apnea) appliance guard that will keep the airway open during sleep, preventing it from collapsing and blocking the normal flow of air during breathing.
Orthodontics and Myofunctional Therapy
Crooked or overcrowded teeth,missaligned upper and lower jaws, and dissatisfaction with your smile: are the reasons many people seek help from their dentists. There are a number of treatments available to treat irregularities of the teeth and jaw, from invisible braces, regular braces to Myobrace.
Braces can strain the jaw in order to fix teeth alignment. Instead, Myobrace, a more natural remedy, is used as a preventative measure as it targets the underlying causes of crooked teeth. Myobrace is an intra-oral appliance that the user wears for a few hours during the day as well as during the night, while sleeping. This helps develop the soft tissue functionality and as such, is best suited to young children and teens. The treatment helps straighten teeth and develop and align the jaw.
Clear Correct aligners is an option for people who seek an alternative to wearing traditional braces. Removable clear braces (aligners) straighten your teeth quickly and safely. They are changed every few weeks until the teeth are in the desired position, all the while allowing you to maintain the lifestyle you enjoy. They are essentially invisible, enhancing the attractiveness of your smile and increasing your confidence.
Dental implants replace missing teeth, allowing you to feel more confident in your smile. They also help stop bite alignment issues which can occur because your teeth may not come together as they should for a perfect bite. The implant is surgical placed in bone where the tooth root would be. After, a post is attached and a crown, bridge or denture is secured to the post. They are long lasting, look and function like natural teeth, and are easy to maintain.
Gingivitis is a term many people are familiar with. It is caused by plaque, the build-up of bacteria on your teeth. If it is not removed, it causes irritation of the gums (bleeding, swelling, pain). Regular cleanings at the dentist, along with thoroughly cleaning your teeth daily (brushing and flossing) will treat the problem and your gums will recover.
If left untreated, gingivitis worsens and can develop into a more serious form of gum disease: periodontitis. Gum surgery can treat the damage caused by periodontitis, such as tooth and bone loss and gum abscesses. Our team of dentists can advise on the most effective treatment for you.
Crowns, Bridges and Veneers
A dental crown, also called a “cap”, fits over and helps preserve a damaged tooth. It is commonly used when a tooth is decayed and/or weakened due to a very large filling. A crown will not only improve the appearance of a tooth, it will strengthen the damaged tooth, allowing you to bite down and chew without fear of further damage.
A bridge, as the name suggests, spans the gap left by one or more missing teeth. The teeth on either side support the replacement. This helps improve dental hygiene by filling in the gaps between teeth. Bridges are a quick and affordable option for a complete set of teeth.
If you don’t like the look of your teeth, dental veneers will give you a million-dollar smile! Made from porcelain, they are bonded to the teeth, covering the surface and improving the appearance. Veneers can help your teeth look more aligned (without the need for braces), more complete (if you have a chipped tooth), and whiter.
One of the easiest and most affordable ways to enhance your confidence is to whiten your teeth. You can choose from one of two options: home tooth whitening Opolescence GO and in-house bleaching ZOOM . The Dentist will suggest the best tooth whitening option for you.
Root canal treatment can save an infected or decayed or damaged tooth. Common symptoms of an infected tooth include severe pain, sensitivity to hot and cold, and/or swollen gums. With the help of a local anesthetic, our dentist or Endodontist if needed (root canal specialist) first removes all the infection from the root canal inside the tooth. We then rebuild the tooth with a filling to prevent any further decay. The procedure is similar to getting a filling! And it will leave you pain free and able to resume biting and chewing with ease.
