Dental cleanings are an integral part of preventative oral care. Dental cleanings are performed by a trained dental hygienist who will clean, polish, and floss your teeth. They may also apply a fluoride treatment. Following your cleaning, a dentist may examine your teeth to determine if any additional dental treatment is required.
Dental restorations, commonly known as fillings, are placed for several reasons. This procedure is often used to treat tooth decay (cavities), or in cases where the teeth have been impacted by trauma or have defective fillings. The most common types of dental fillings include composite (white fillings) and amalgam (silver fillings).
(Crown And Bridge)
Dental crowns are used to protect weak teeth (e.g., root canalled or have large fillings), restore worn or fractured teeth, and cosmetically improve teeth. A crown is a hollow cap-like apparatus that is placed over a tooth that has been prepared by a dentist, restoring both its function and esthetics. A dental bridge is a prosthesis that is used to replace one or more missing teeth. It consists of a series of crowns that are fused together and held in place by anchor teeth (abutments) on either side of the space of the missing tooth or teeth. Dental crowns and bridges are both non-removable treatment options as they are cemented in place.
(Complete And Partial Dentures)
Complete dentures are held in place by suction and are designed to restore function and esthetics for dental patients who are missing all of their natural teeth in a given arch. Complete dentures can be used in combination with dental implants for increased stability and comfort.
Partial dentures are an option for patients who are missing select teeth in a given arch. In conjunction with their natural teeth, a partial denture uses the remaining teeth as anchors whilst fully replacing the missing ones, restoring both function and esthetics. Both complete and partial dentures are removable, making them a great option for patients.
Tooth extractions are performed for numerous reasons. Under certain circumstances, an adult or child may require a tooth extraction due to cases of extreme decay, infection, or if a tooth is broken beyond repair. In other cases, teeth may need to be removed for preventative measures, such as in the case of wisdom teeth. A common concern of patients is the pain associated with performing a tooth extraction. With the use of local anesthetic, any pain or discomfort will be minimized greatly. Dr. Jonathan Low is skilled at providing tooth extractions in a caring and comfortable environment.
A root canal may sound like an intimidating procedure but is generally not a cause for concern. Root canals are performed to target an infected or inflamed tooth nerve and involves cleaning and disinfecting the inside of the tooth by removing the affected nerve/pulp. After the procedure is complete, the tooth is sealed, filled, and may require a dental crown. Root canals are relatively common and can generally be performed in under 90 minutes.
Dental Implant Restoration
Dental implants are becoming an increasingly popular procedure to replace missing teeth. Each dental implant acts like a “tooth root” and can be used to support crowns, bridges, and dentures.
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure which involves the application of bleach to the teeth to provide them with a whiter appearance. Teeth naturally darken with age and may also become discoloured from surface stains through the consumption of certain foods and beverages. While teeth whitening can help brighten your natural smile, restorations and fixed/removable prostheses will not benefit from tooth-bleaching procedures.
A dental night guard is a type of dental appliance that prevents teeth clenching or grinding. It is created by a dental professional, who will take impressions and a bite registration (molds) that are unique to your teeth and mouth.
A sports guard is a type of dental appliance that protects teeth while participating in impact sports and are highly recommended to prevent unnecessary injury and damage.
