Regular cleaning and dental hygiene appointments with a professional hygienist are important to maintain your oral health. The mouth is a window to your overall health. People who have a higher risk of dental related complications are those with diabetes, heart disease, lung disease and pregnant women. Ask us how we can help with your individualized treatment plan.
Sport guards are used to protect against sport related injuries while playing sports such as hockey, football, baseball, etc. We even offer a multitude of colours to match your team colours! All that is required is an upper impression of your teeth to ensure the guard will fit properly.
Crowns are used to protect and stabilize heavily restored teeth (large fillings) or to prevent root canalled teeth from fracturing due to lack of blood supply, which makes the tooth brittle and susceptible to breakage. Crowns can also be used to cosmetically cover enamel that is discoloured. In this procedure, the tooth is first prepared by being filed down, making room for the crown. The tooth is then completely covered or “capped” by the crown.
A bridge is a set of crowns fixed inside the mouth in order to replace a missing tooth or teeth. It is a restoration used to fill a space by joining permanently to adjacent teeth or dental implants. While a bridge is a good solution for replacing teeth, the best option is to place an independent implant which does not affect other natural teeth.
