Exams and Cleanings: During this appointment, your dentist will take a series of X-rays, examine the teeth and check for cavities, problem areas and cancer symptoms. During your cleaning, the dentist or dental hygienist will also remove hardened plaque and bacteria that you may not be able to remove with your toothbrush. Regular exams and cleanings should be made a crucial part of your oral health care regime.
Fillings: Fillings are made of porcelain, silver amalgam, gold or composite resin that are used to fill teeth and stop decay, or repair teeth that are broken or worn down from grinding.
Surgical Extraction: If a tooth is severely decayed or damaged, or if you have extra teeth that are blocking other teeth from coming in, your dentist may need to remove the tooth through surgical extraction. Many patients also get their wisdom teeth removed to avoid shifting of teeth, pain or swelling of the gums.
Root Canal Therapy: Root canal therapy is a procedure used to save a tooth with a diseased nerve or pulp tissue. Your dentist will remove the pulp and clean the root canal to avoid infection, and then strengthen the tooth by covering it with a crown.
Crown: A crown is a cap that covers a tooth to replace a filling, or improve its strength, appearance, shape and alignment.
Bridge: Bridges are often used for patients with missing teeth and are mounted in between the teeth to fill the gap.
Teeth Whitening: Professional whitening in a dentist’s office is an easy way to improve your smile and see immediate results. It is much more effective than over-the-counter whitening treatments.
Dentures: Dentures are false teeth used to replace missing teeth and support surrounding soft and hard tissues.
Implant Restoration: Implant restoration involves the creation of an artificial tooth to replace a missing tooth due to disease or decay, and then attaching it to the dental implant.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation: Nitrous oxide, otherwise known as laughing gas, offers relaxation and painkilling properties for patients who may experience pain at the dentist or suffer from anxiety over dental treatment.
