Personalized Care and Guidance
Like most things in life, it’s always better to start early: this includes your child’s exposure to health dental habits. The sooner you start familiarizing your child with the dental office, the easier it will be down the line.
Routine check ups help ensure a healthy mouth and prevent future dental problems. During a routine check your dentist will check your teeth, gums and overall mouth. If you had any problems or want some advice, this is the time to bring them up to your dentist.
If you have gaps in your teeth or just want to fix your smile to the way you want, porcelain veneers may be the solution for you. Veneers are made of a super thin shell that covers the front of your tooth to improve its appearance.
An extraction is essentially an eviction for you tooth, it needs to pack up all it’s belongings and be removed from the premises. A tooth extraction is when the tooth is completely removed from its socket in the bone, usually when a tooth is extracted it is beyond repair.
A white smile can give us that extra boost of confidence we want. A whitening tray will be made for you teeth and then for the next few weeks all you will have to do is apply a whitening solution (made from a harmless bleaching agent) and voila! A whiter and brighter smile.
Crowns and Bridges
Crowns also known as caps are little attachments that go on top of an existing tooth. They are ideal to restore the shape, colour and function of your tooth. They are available in three types: all metal, metal and porcelain and porcelain/ceramic.
You love your sport, but you also probably love your teeth. The best way to protect them while playing contact sports (like hockey, cricket, soccer, football etc.) is with a mouthguard.
If you have one or more missing teeth, partial dentures may be a good fit to help rebuild your smile. Partial dentures are a plate (made of either plastic or metal) that have one or more false teeth built in. They are secured in your mouth using clasps or clips and have a natural appearance to your other teeth.
If you have an infected tooth or a really bad sensitivity or toothache, you may need a root canal. Now don’t let the stereotypes intimidate you, root canal procedures are similar to a really long filling visit. Local anaesthetics will help you feel (almost) nothing and the pain afterwards is minimal.
Much less intimidating than it sounds, a dental implant is a replacement tooth that is made out of titanium. Implants can last a lifetime, are easy to care for and look as well as feel just like your natural teeth.
MJ dysfunction can cause severe headaches, neck or shoulder pain, difficulty chewing or yawning pain or discomfort on the sides of your face. If these symptoms sound (or feel) familiar talk to you dentist about diagnosis and treatment options.
