X-rays are a part of your regular preventive dental care. They are a great diagnostic tool to help your doctor determine if there are any dental problems that need addressing. These problems can often not be visible during a routine dental exam and can only be shown through x-rays, which is what makes them so important to include in your routine dental exams. Our doctors use your x-rays as part of your complete dental care to make sure your smile is healthy.
- Digital X-rays (Intraoral, Extraoral Panoramic)
- Intraoral Photos
Gum disease can affect patients of all ages and although it is a common dental problem, with good dental hygiene and proper professional dental care, it is preventable. Many patients who have gum disease don’t even realize it because they don’t initially experience any pain and by the time they are aware of the problem they can be in danger of severe consequences like losing teeth. Even if you have been diagnosed with gum disease, in its early stages it can often be stopped from advancing further and occasionally can be reversed.
We want to keep your smile healthy and beautiful now and in the future. With the help of your dentist and their team, preventive care is your best defense against dental disease and other dental conditions.
Keep your mouth healthy with regular dental care including:
- Scaling/Root Planning
- Sealants/Preventive Resin Restoration
- Space Maintainers
If your teeth have been damaged by disease, decay or trauma you require the care and attention to restore your smile. Whether it’s a filling, root canal, crown or bridge, we use modern dental practices to give your restorative dental care the most natural look possible. Our goal is to restore the form and function of any damaged teeth with an aesthetically pleasing look.
Your smile is very important to you, and we want to do the very best to make sure you feel confident in how it looks. Missing teeth can impact more than just the look of your smile, besides affecting your bite, they can sometimes contribute to gum disease and other tooth and bone decay. Treatments for missing teeth can include dental implants or bridges.
Restorative care dentistry includes:
- Caries, Trauma and Pain Control
- Bonded Tooth Coloured Resin Restorations
- Crowns (Full Porcelain, Full Gold or Porcelain fused to Metal)
- Esthetic Veneers
Prosthodontic procedures include crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays, onlays, complete and partial dentures. Dental implants have become the preferred method for replacing missing teeth, so many prosthodontic procedures today are done with implants as the support instead of the natural teeth or gums.
- Fixed Bridge
- Removable Partical Dentures
Endodontic treatment is the treatment of a tooth that is sick, abscessed, severely broken, too long and in the way of the bite, or hurting due to issues that have affected the entire tooth. In comfort, a small entry is made into the tooth and the little tunnels or canals (where the nerve and blood vessels live) inside the tooth are cleaned and reshaped.
- Root Canal Therapy
- Pulpotomy/Pulpectomy for Primary Dentitions
There are times when it is necessary to remove a tooth. Sometimes a baby tooth has misshapen or long roots that prevent it from falling out as it should, and the tooth must be removed to make way for the permanent tooth to erupt. At other times, a tooth may have so much decay that it puts the surrounding teeth and jaw at risk of decay, so your doctor may recommend removal and replacement with a bridge or implant. Infection, orthodontic correction, or problems with a wisdom tooth can also require removal of a tooth.
- Simple and Surgical Extractions
- Baby Teeth Extractions
- Surgical Wisdom Teeth Extractions
We can provide sedation dentistry depending on the treatment required. This can be a good option to allow for more work to be done in one appointment and make sure you are completely pain free during your appointment.

Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
- Implant Surgery
- Implant Supported Crowns or Prosthesis
Laser therapy treatments are a great way of treating certain dental conditions in a non-invasive manner, providing quick and comfortable treatment.
- Gingival Soft Tissue Re-Contouring

Orthodontic treatment is another excellent option to correct any imperfections in your smile. One great way to do that is with the use of Invisalign which consists of clear removable mouth trays that will, over time, force your teeth to shift and correct your teeth. They are invisible and are to be removed when you eat.
For more information on Invisalign or other orthodontic care contact the office.

Modern technology offers us teeth whitening without harmful side effects. We offer teeth whitening treatments in our office and teeth whitening treatments for you to use at home.
