Everyone from babies to seniors should see a dentist on a regular basis. As your family dentist can provide a comprehensive list of services to members of the whole family. With our state-of-the-art equipment and experienced dentists, we’re able to help our patients maintain healthy teeth and gums throughout their lifetime. Below are some of the most important dental services that we offer to the community.
Our dental examinations help catch problems like cavities, wisdom teeth issues, gum disease and more. During your examination, we take time to talk to you about your issues as well as your brushing and flossing habits. We show you how to properly clean your teeth to avoid plaque buildup. We recommend that most people see their dentist at least every six months.
We can also clean your teeth to remove plaque and tartar buildup. Dental cleanings are just as important as dental examinations and should also be done every six months. Getting regular dental cleanings can help you avoid gum disease, cavities and other problems.
X-Rays and Diagnosis
We use digital radiographic equipment to diagnose conditions like infections, periodontal disease, cavities and more. We also X-ray younger patients to ensure their teeth are growing in straight and on schedule. Our diagnostic services can help predict problems and get patients treatment before conditions become advanced.
Treatment for Gum Disease
When we discover evidence of gum disease, we recommend immediate treatment, either through changes in oral hygiene, deep cleaning, antibiotics or surgery, depending on the severity of the problem.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Many patients need to have their wisdom teeth removed in late childhood or adulthood. When there is not enough room for them or they cause pain, swelling, and interfere with other teeth. Our experienced dentists can perform this surgery and help patients during recovery to ensure a smooth procedure from start to finish.
Cavities can occur at any time in childhood or adulthood. We provide fillings or dental restorations for all our patients using tooth-coloured resins or dental amalgam as needed.
Tooth grinding (or bruxism) can cause serious damage to a patient’s teeth, causing cracks in the enamel, sensitivity, loose teeth and more. We provide night guards top help patients protect their teeth from tooth grinding activities at night.
Dental sealants, which can be offered to children or adults, help fill the deep groves of your teeth enamel to prevent food particles from nestling in the tight spaces. This can prevent cavities from starting in the biting surfaces of your teeth.
