Check-up and Cleaning

There is no doubt that prevention is always better than treatment. Through regular personal care in combination with periodic professional dental exams and cleanings, you can effectively prevent disease and decay as well as avoid costly treatments and restorations in the future. Therefore, regular prevention is truly your best investment.

Most people are recommended to have a dental exam and cleaning every six months. Adhering to such routine will help you detect dental problems while they’re small and get them fixed in time. A professional dental cleaning removes hard tartar and plaque that cannot be removed by brushing and flossing alone, effectively preventing buildup of tartar and plaque that could seriously damage the health of your gums and lead to oral disease such as gingivitis and periodontitis.

Our Tips for a Healthy Mouth

  • Brush your teeth 3 times a day
  • Use fluoride toothpaste
  • Floss every night before bed
  • Minimalize consumption of sugary foods and drinks

Restorations

A filling is the most common dental treatment when it comes to tooth decay, it effectively restores the appearance and function of the tooth.

There are two different types of fillings: amalgam (otherwise known as “silver” fillings) and composite (synthetic resin), a white-colored material which shade can be customized to match your natural teeth.

Dentists also often recommend composite material for cavity fillings as they are bonded to the teeth and therefore require less drilling away of the natural tooth.

Root Canals

Root canals or endodontic treatments are performed to save a severely damaged or infected tooth that would otherwise need to be removed.

When decay or trauma harms the nerve of a tooth, it will cause necrosis or “dying of the nerve” resulting often in an acute toothache. A root canal treatment is required in this situation in order to remove the infected, injured or dead tissues in the tooth. Once cleaned, the dentist will fill the canals and then seal the tooth with a permanent filling.

By successfully removing the infected nerve tissue and bacteria inside the tooth and disinfecting the canals, filling the space with gutta percha, then finally sealing the tooth with a permanent filling or a crown, the dentist saves the tooth from extraction.

However, it’s important to note that teeth with root canal treatments are often more susceptible to fracture which can still lead to removal of the tooth. Thus it is ideal to protect a root canal treated tooth with a porcelain crown to help prolong the longevity of the tooth.

Gum Maintenance

The most common symptoms of periodontal (gum) disease in its early stages are bleeding gums during and after brushing or flossing your teeth, sore and swollen gums, and receding gum line.

Most gum diseases can be prevented with proper oral hygiene. However, as gum diseases progress painlessly so many people often don’t begin paying attention until it’s advanced—red and inflamed gums (gingivitis) can quickly turn into periodontitis. Gums then have receded so much that they form “pockets” around the tooth, thereby exposing the root to infection. Further symptoms include bad breath, loose teeth, painful chewing and other complications.

Gum treatment and periodontal maintenance primarily involves removing plaque and tartar from both above and below the gum line to attempt reduction of the pockets and successfully control further progression of the periodontal disease.

Children Dentistry

The Canadian Dental Association encourages the assessment of infants, by the dentist, … within 6 months of the eruption of the first tooth or by one year of age.

Many parents wonder: Baby teeth will fall out eventually and be replaced by permanent teeth anyway, so what’s the big deal? But decayed or infected baby teeth can hurt a child’s overall health, self-confidence and ultimately the underlying adult teeth.

The main focus of children dentistry is prevention; therefore it is very important for children to visit their dentist for regular checkups as early as one year-old or when the first baby teeth come out.

Crowns and Bridges

Dental crowns and bridges are fixed prosthodontic appliances that are made according to an impression of your unique dentition and do not require daily removal. They’re used to replace or restore damaged or missing teeth.

A crown is custom-fitted to your natural tooth structure. Its function is to protect heavily restored teeth or teeth with high risk of fracture such as a tooth that had a root canal treatment. Crowns can also be placed on dental implants used to replace missing teeth.

Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. Custom-fitted as well, a bridge is made up of a chain of two or more crowns for the teeth on either side of the missing teeth. A bridge can use natural teeth or dental implants as support.

Implants

In today’s dentistry, a dental implant is the next best thing to a natural tooth, therefore the best option to replace a missing tooth.

It is a surgical fixture made of titanium that is inserted into the jawbone that mimics the form and function of a natural tooth. When the implant has properly integrated to your bone, a dental crown is then fabricated and secured to the implant.

With proper care and use, an implant can last a long time and prolong one’s ease and ability to enjoy food much better than other prosthodontic appliances.

Wisdom teeth

Wisdom teeth are the third and last molars on each side of the upper and lower jaws. For many, wisdom teeth come out during their late teens or early twenties.

Sometimes, these third molars come out straight and do not need to be removed. However, wisdom teeth that only partially erupt or come in crooked can often cause crowding in the mouth that may lead to pain, decay, or infection.

Some wisdom teeth remain fully impacted under the gums and can be harmful to the tooth that they’re pushing up against. These impacted wisdom teeth can also develop cysts or tumors which can have damaging effects to the surrounding tissues. Therefore, to prevent future problems and complications, dentists recommend to have your wisdom teeth evaluated as early as possible to see if they should be removed.
