A comprehensive exam is critical to maintaining your oral health and establishing that you do not have any dental problems. An exam often consists of x-rays and an oral cancer screening, in addition to a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, and surrounding tissues.
X-rays capture an image of your teeth’s internal structure that cannot otherwise be seen. Digital X-rays reduce your exposure to radiation comparatively while giving a clearer picture that can be resized and enhanced on a computer. This reduces the likelihood that additional image needs to be taken as well as helping us catch potential dental problem in their earliest stages.
Regular dental scaling (cleaning) ensure the removal of any significant plaque build-up that cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone. It helps maintain the general health of your gums and teeth.
Restorations (tooth-coloured or silver fillings) are required for teeth that have been damaged by chewing trauma or caries (cavities). The affected areas of the tooth are cleaned and then “restored” to form and function. By closing off spaces where bacteria can enter, a filling also helps prevent further decay.
In some cases, the best treatment to restore your smile is to have a tooth extracted. After the tooth is removed, one of our dentists will discuss further treatment options with you.
A root canal procedure is performed when the nerve of the tooth becomes infected or the pulp becomes damaged. During a root canal procedure, the damaged nerve and pulp are removed, after which the inside of the tooth is cleaned, disinfected and sealed. The tooth will then be pain-free and can be used as it normally should be.
With CEREC, your treatment is faster and more comfortable because the dental prosthesis is created digitally. It allows your dentist to design high-quality dental restorations in one patient visit. CEREC uses CAD/CAM technology, which allows your dentist to design a virtual restoration without taking impressions, and create the restoration while you are still in the chair. This allows us to provide you with crowns, inlays, onlays. The treatment is done in one visit.
A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available – complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.
If one or more of your teeth are missing, you may benefit from the placement of an implant. Implants are used to replace missing roots and support artificial replacement teeth. They are comfortable and look like natural teeth.
If you wake up with headaches, tooth pain, or unexplained damage to your teeth, you may be grinding or clenching in your sleep. Protect your teeth from night-time grinding with a custom-fit bite plane.
