From a broken tooth, tooth aches, swelling to sensitivity and pain in the teeth, gums,and jaw, can be examined by the dentist. Specific treatment options for relief of the pain are discussed. In some cases when infection is involved, patients require taking antibiotics prior to having dental treatment. If needed, antibiotics or other medications these will be prescribed at your dental visit.
Whether you have a newly diagnosed cavity, an old filling that needs replacement or a broken tooth, our dentist has a restorative option to suit your unique case. Ranging from traditional or composite(tooth-colored) fillings to crowns, we strive to educate our patients about their unique treatment options.
We recommend children start with their first dental visit around 18 months of age. This allows us to begin introducing the child to the dental office, and is early enough to intercept any early dental problems.
Our Registered Dental Hygienists provide our patients with comprehensive dental hygiene therapy including disease education, scaling (with ultrasonic scaler in conjuction with hand instruments), root planning, and oral health care instruction. If you have problems with sensitivity during hygiene treatment, our hygienists may recommend local freezing and topical anaesthetics (gel or rinse) to make your visit as comfortable as possible.
We use our clinical skill and technology to diagnose any oral health problems or concerns you may have. Examinations include the taking of digital x-rays, intraoral pictures, and a full visual examination and discussion of a personalized treatment plan.
In some cases in-depth discussion and time is required to explain, understand and plan dental treatment.
