General Dentistry for all ages.
Emergency Examinations and Treatment
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.
Dental Hygiene Services
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.
Referral to Specialist
Our dentist has close professional ties with a variety of dental specialists. If you have a unique situation requiring referral, we will make sure that you will be seen by the right person.

Coating placed into the deep grooves on teeth as a preventative treatment where cavities are most likely to occur.
Endodontic/Root Canal Treatment
If the nerve inside a tooth is dying or has died then a root canal may be chosen to save the tooth. A root canal is essentially the removal of the tissue from inside the tooth – the root remains, but the tooth itself is no longer alive.
A fixed bridge replaces one or more missing teeth. It is cemented in place to restore full function.
