Keep serious dental conditions at bay and maintain your optimal oral health with preventive habits, checkups and examinations. Preventive dentistry helps you minimize dental problems like enamel loss, cavities, gingivitis and periodontitis. This wide-ranging aspect of dentistry encompasses everything from daily brushing and flossing to regular dental visits. Talk to us and learn more about the practices that enable children to develop strong and healthy teeth, and help adults keep their natural teeth.
A dental bridge is a restorative device that will replace your missing teeth and bridge the gap in your smile. Comprised of one or more pontics (artificial teeth) fused between two crowns, a bridge is a fixed prosthesis, which means it cannot be taken out of the mouth. Its advantages include restoring your ability to chew properly, helping maintain the shape of your face, and preventing your remaining teeth from shifting out of alignment. Contact us to discuss the types of bridges available for you.
A dental implant is an alternative to bridges, partials, or complete dentures. It is an artificial root system that replaces missing roots. It is made of titanium that fuses with the jawbone and serves as an anchor to support artificial replacement teeth. This dental device might be right for you if you are in good health, have healthy gums, have a jawbone that has reached full growth, and have enough bone in the jaw to keep the implants in place.
This aspect of dentistry deals with the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of oral problems. It involves treatment plans that alleviate pain, restore the appearance of your teeth, and help you achieve optimal oral health. There are a number of restorative options available for teeth that are discoloured, decayed, cracked, chipped or missing. These include fillings, crowns, bridges and implants, all of which share the goal of restoring your natural smile and preventing further oral complications.
This removable device is a replacement for missing teeth and their surrounding tissues. There are two types of dentures available: complete and partial. Complete dentures are ideal for replacing all teeth on either the bottom or top gum line, whereas partial dentures are used when there are natural teeth remaining. In addition to improving the appearance of your smile, dentures help keep your mouth healthy by supporting various structures in the mouth and enabling you to chew properly.
Also known as a dental cap, a dental crown is a hollow, artificial tooth that is placed over the natural tooth to restore its size, shape and function. You might need this fixed prosthetic device if your tooth is discoloured or damaged but not lost. When cemented into place, a crown will cover the visible portion of your tooth above the gum line and protect it from further damage. Crowns are made from different types of materials, and our dentist is here to help you choose the right one for you.
Tooth Colour Fillings
A tooth-coloured filling is a popular way to restore the appearance and strength of a natural tooth that has lost a significant amount of structure due to decay or misuse. This procedure is used to treat a cavity and to repair cracked or chipped teeth. As the name suggests, tooth-coloured fillings are designed to resemble your actual teeth and maintain a natural appearance. They protect and strengthen your teeth to withstand the pressures your teeth experience on a regular basis.
Whether it's a broken tooth or aching gums, any dental emergency requires immediate attention and proper care. This is true for situations that involve discomfort, serious pain, severe infections, or trauma to the mouth. In the event of a dental emergency, contact us immediately. We'll discuss your situation, guide you accordingly, and, if necessary, make sure you get treatment as soon as possible.
The focus of pediatric dental care is promoting good dental habits and healthy teeth and gum development in children and adolescents. Your dentist will help keep your child's teeth and gums healthy through preventative oral health exams and early assessments. We'll also teach them ways to take better care of their teeth at home and guide them on how to ensure optimal oral health during crucial developmental stages.
It is estimated that seven out of ten Canadians will develop periodontitis, or gum disease, at some point in their lives. Primarily caused by plaque and tartar build-up, this pathological inflammatory condition gradually damages the soft tissue and bone that surrounds and supports the teeth. If left untreated, periodontitis will eventually result in tooth loss and increase the risk of other serious health problems. A lot depends on the health of your teeth and gums, so it's imperative that we make periodontal care a priority.
Bruxism Appliances and Sports Guards
We can custom fabricate night guards to help with bruxism, a condition characterized by unconscious clenching or grinding of the teeth. Using bruxism appliances protects the teeth and existing dental work from wear and tear. It will also alleviate stress in the jaw muscles, head and neck. We also offer custom sports guards to protect your teeth during strenuous activities. These can be fitted to your specifications to provide optimal comfort and protection.
Invisalign® offers clear, removable aligners designed to apply the right amount of force at the right time to gradually straighten your teeth. These aligners are virtually invisible and you can remove them for special occasions, or simply when you need to eat and drink, or brush and floss. If you are interested in improving the alignment of your teeth minus the brackets, wires, and restrictions that come with traditional metal braces, the Invisalign® treatment is for you.
Cosmetic dentistry is primarily focused on improving the aesthetic aspects of your oral health and giving you a better smile. This would include teeth straightening and the removal or addition of dental material to the tooth or gums. If your teeth are stained and discoloured or worn, broken, and misshapen, we can recommend the appropriate cosmetic dental procedure or a combination of different procedures.
