General Dentistry

General dentistry addresses both preventive and restorative care for your family’s smile needs. It encompasses a wide range of services including:

Preventative Care Visits:

Healthy patients should have their teeth cleaned and examined every six months in order to encourage healthy smiles and address oral health problems while they are smaller and simpler to correct. Below are some common dental services that may be recommended to you. We do comprehensive check ups and discuss diagnosis and treatment options with you before recommending a care plan.

Dental Fillings: A dental filling is used to restore the portion of a tooth that has been damaged by decay or trauma. Fillings return both form and function to the afflicted tooth.

Fillings along with your regular 6-month check-ups and an at home dental routine can prevent further decay.

Composite or porcelain fillings/restorations offer a much more aesthetically pleasing look. The earlier your dentist repairs your cavities, the smaller and more affordable your filling will be.

Root Canal: A root canal aims to save and repair a tooth instead of removing it. A root canal treatment removes diseased nerve and tissues inside of a tooth. No matter how well an artificial tooth is made, a natural tooth will always be better, easier to clean and maintain.

Some common needs for a root canal treatment is because the tooth is cracked, severely decayed or trauma.

Children’s Dentistry: Establishing good oral hygiene habits at a young age is crucial for your child’s long-term dental health. We recommend children start seeing the dentist from the age of 2.

To keep your children’s teeth healthy we offer a variety of preventative and general dentistry:

  • Oral hygiene instructions
  • Fissure sealants
  • Tooth coloured fillings
  • Fluoride treatments
  • Cleanings and exams

Wisdom Teeth Removal: Wisdom teeth sometimes cause pain, infection, or crowding of your other teeth. A simple exam and possibly some x-rays are all that you need to find out whether or not your wisdom teeth need to be removed.
