Oral Exams & New Patient Exams

Our dental team is focused on preventative care and prioritizes maintaining the health of your natural teeth. This is why we recommend visiting your dentist at least once a year for a comprehensive dental check-up.

Dental Hygiene Appointments

Following regular dental hygiene procedures is the foundation of good oral care. This includes brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing your teeth daily. While these practices help to keep your teeth and gums healthy, it is also vital to visit your dental hygienist for more comprehensive teeth cleaning.

Root Canals

When your teeth are damaged or decayed, bacteria can enter the dental pulp that sits inside the tooth. The pulp, which is made up of nerves and blood vessels, can become infected and form an abscess; a root canal is a dental procedure that is used to treat a tooth infection and bring your tooth back to health.

Dental Sealants

When food particles get trapped in the grooves of the teeth, they can become susceptible to decay. Dental sealants are a plastic coating that is applied to the chewing surface of the teeth. This treatment is sometimes recommended for adults, but most often used for kids, as it helps to prevent decay.

Teeth Extractions

While your dentist will always strive to maintain your natural teeth, there may be situations where an extraction is unavoidable. A tooth extraction may be necessary when the teeth are damaged or decayed beyond repair or cause overcrowding in the mouth.

Dental X-Rays

Dental X-rays are an essential part of your oral exam as they help your dentist assess what is happening inside the tooth and below the gum line. This early detection is crucial so infections or other problems can be treated quickly, avoiding any serious harm to the tooth.

Gum Grafting

Healthy gums are essential for maintaining your oral health as they provide a solid base for the teeth. If you suffer from a receding gum line or have reduced gum tissue due to disease, gum grafting can help.

Oral Cancer Screening

An oral cancer screening is an essential part of your oral exam. Your dentist will visually inspect the mouth tissues to assess for discolouration and feel the tissues for lumps. If you notice any discolouration or abnormalities in the mouth, it is essential that you visit your dentist.
