Preventive dental services encompass a much wider scope than ever before. We are focused on keeping your mouth healthy, but in the context of the ever-growing links between oral health and overall body health. From diabetic to cardiovascular to breathing and other concerns, it’s no longer just about teeth and gums!
Not just fillings, these are services that we can provide for teeth in order to bring them back to original function and appearance. Whether a tooth has been compromised by decay, an old filling that is breaking down, or perhaps just has an abnormal shape or colour, we have plenty of restoration options that may be suitable.
Endodontic treatment basically refers to root canals. When a tooth has had irreversible damage to the nerve, there are only two options: either the tooth has to be extracted, or an attempt can be made to save the tooth via a root canal. In a root canal, our goal is to clean out all the dead and dying material from inside the tooth and refill the canals to prevent reinfection by bacteria.
Replacement of missing teeth can be done in three basic ways: implants, bridges, and dentures. This is where dentistry has made great strides, and now we have methods to replace teeth that feel great, work great, look great, and are also long-lasting. Like everything else, there is a best solution for every situation, and it takes a careful evaluation to find it. What works for one person may not be the best for another.
