When maintaining healthy teeth and gums is so critical to your overall health, it’s easy to recognize how important it is to make regular hygiene care a priority.
Over 60% of Canadians suffer – many unknowingly – from periodontal disease. There is clear evidence that this condition is linked to many serious health conditions including stroke, autoimmune disorders, heart disease and more. Prevention begins with proper dental care that includes a regular checkup and cleaning from your dentist and hygienist team
Fillings, provide the most reliable repair where your dentist has detected signs of decay. Our practice uses both composite fillings, coloured like the tooth and the more traditional silver amalgam fillings. When recommending fillings we will provide you with all the details to help you make an informed choice.
Sometime between late teen years and the early twenties, your third molars, or wisdom teeth may emerge. Often these do more harm than good and your dentist may recommend surgical removal advisable to prevent other dental problems such as crowding of your more important teeth. Additionally, they may be impacted (trapped in your jawbone or gums) typically because there is not enough room for them to grow properly.

An oversized filling, gum disease, deep decay or severe trauma can be possible reasons for your dentist to call for a root canal procedure. Should the tooth pulp become infected, bacteria grows and eventually both the pulp and the bone can deteriorate and become abscessed. At this point a root canal is the only option available to relieve the severe pain that accompanies these conditions and still save the tooth from extraction.
Your dentist will explain each element of the procedure and you can be assured that your prompt return to full comfort is our main priority.
