At Dent1st Glenfield, general dentistry addresses both preventive and restorative care for your family’s smile needs.
We offer a wide range of services including:
Oral Hygiene Instruction:
Proper oral hygiene is one of the best ways to prevent things like cavities and gum disease.
Removal of hard and soft deposits above the gumline and between the teeth using an ultrasonic scaler, hand instruments and then touch free Prophyflex. It is called "routine" as it is not for the treatment of periodontitis as this would be separate treatment that has additional charges.
Preventative Care Visits:
It’s better to prevent issues from occurring rather than trying to fix them one they have happened. To maintain healthy teeth and gums we recommend that patients should have their teeth cleaned and examined every six months. This will encourage health smiles and we’ll be able to address any issues while they are small and simpler to correct.
Tooth decay can lead to a portion of a tooth being damaged. A filling is way of fixing both the form and function of the damaged tooth.
Root Canal Treatment:
A root canal is a treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or becomes infected. During a root canal procedure, the nerve and pulp are removed and the inside of the tooth is cleaned and sealed.
It’s important to embed good oral hygiene habits at a young age. This will help your children maintain healthy teeth and great smile as they grow up.
Crowns and Bridges:
Sometimes a tooth is damaged beyond what a simple filling can fix, we can STILL help reinforce the tooth using ceramic and/or gold crowns.
You're either born with a perfect smile, OR you can have one created for you, our dentists will be happy to discuss your cosmetic dental needs and treatment plan a solution that best suits you and your budget.
