We’ve all been there. Whether it was for an oral examination, dental filling or teeth whitening, the general dentist’s office was the destination that would bring the health and beauty back to our smiles.
General dentistry focuses on a wide range of services in order to prevent, diagnose and treat different oral health conditions.
At Woodbridge Smile Centre, we offer all-inclusive general dentistry services in a professional and friendly environment dedicated to maintaining the best conditions for our patients’ well-being.
In this article, we’ll take a look at various types of the services provided by our general dentists.
– Prevention is always better
Regardless of your age, it is recommended that you visit a dentist every six months. This lets you become aware of the potential problems that may happen to your oral health and prevents existing problems from further progression.
– Make sure everything is good by Regular Dental Check-ups:
By scheduling routine check-ups, you will be ensured that your oral health is assessed carefully, and potential issues are identified before they turn into serious dental conditions.
– Freshen your smile with Dental Cleanings:
Dental plaques and tartar are built up on the teeth’s surface as a result of poor brushing and flossing habits. Consequently, this leads to the formation of cavities and tooth decay. A routine dental cleaning is the key to minimizing the risk of oral diseases.
– Prevent tooth decay with Fluoride treatments:
Fluoride treatment is a quick and painless procedure to reduce the risk of cavities and gum diseases by applying a high concentration of fluoride by the dentist.
– Dental sealants: Complete the prevention
Thin coatings that are painted on the chewing surface of the molars and prevent the germs from causing damage to your teeth.
– Accurate diagnosis with X-rays:
At Woodbridge Smile Centre, our general dentists will use x-rays to carefully evaluate the condition of your teeth and gums, to create an authentic treatment plan for you.
– Early on Cancer Screenings:
Detecting oral cancers at the early stages significantly increase the chances of successful treatment and allows for more effective and less invasive interventions to combat the disease.
– Educational services: The best tips for maintaining oral hygiene
Being familiar with the best oral hygiene habits is the key to maintain the lifelong health and beauty of your teeth. Our experienced dentist will inform you about the most effective brushing, flossing and dietary tips.
When the damage is done to the teeth , restorative care becomes crucial. These treatments are aimed at fixing issues like broken and missing teeth, cavities and tooth decay. In the heart of Woodbridge, we provide a broad range of restorative dental services:
– Restore the cavities with Dental Fillings:
When cavities or minor damages appear in the teeth, dental filling is used to fix the problem and prevent further damage.
Through this procedure, the dentist removes the decayed or damaged portion of the tooth and fills the cavity with restorative material.
Common material used in dental filling are amalgam (silver-colored) and composite resin (tooth-colored).
– Create a fresh look with Dental Crowns:
Dental crowns are custom-made caps that cover the entire visible part of tooth. They are used in several situations:
– When a tooth is weakened by severe decay or root canal treatment, dental crowns are used to strengthen them.
– Teeth with cavities undergo dental fillings and these fillings can sometimes be large. When the remaining natural tooth structure is limited, dental crowns can be used to provide additional support.
– Cover for the missing teeth with Dental Bridges
Missing a tooth? Dental bridges are here to help you restore the look of your shiny smile by anchoring artificial teeth to adjacent teeth, whether they are natural or dental implants.
The process involves preparing the teeth or implants on either side of the gap for crowns. Artificial teeth are then attached to the crowns, and the bridge is cemented into place. Congratulations, you’re once again able to smile confidently!
LET YOUR SMILE SHINE
– Dental implants, an alternative to the original
Fortunately, a permanent solution is available for compensating for the look and function that is lost by missing teeth: Dental implants.
First, a titanium implant is surgically inserted into the jawbone, and it is integrated over time. The next step is to attach an abutment to the implant, followed by adjusting a custom-made crown to the abutment. The result? A durable alternative tooth that works great!
– Preserved comfort with Dentures
Nothing can stop you from smiling beautifully, and enjoying the meals that you’ve always loved. Full and partial dentures are here to replace all or some of the missing teeth, made exclusively for you to ensure proper function and comfort.
– Controlling infections with root canal treatment
When the innermost part of the teeth become infected or inflamed, a root canal treatment is needed to control the infection. So, the dentist removes the damages dental pulp from inside your tooth, and then cleans the root canal. This stage is followed by filling the space with a bio-compatible material. To restore the function, applying dental filling or crowns may be needed in the last stage.
– Dental Inlays and Onlays
Inlayes and onlays become stronger options when the tooth structure cannot support the placement of a regular filling. While inlays are placed within the cusps of the tooth, onlays extend over one or more cusps.
– Tooth extractions
When the damage to the teeth is very severe that other restorative methods like dental fillings or dental crowns aren’t enough, the general dentist may choose to remove the whole tooth. Through the procedure, the area is numbed with local anesthesia, and the tooth is carefully removed by using forceps or elevators.
Extraction may be simple or surgical depended on the condition of the tooth.
LET YOUR SMILE SHINE
– Empowering your smile by Teeth whitening
Are stained or discolored teeth causing you to be less confident with your smile? Don’t worry, our general dentists at Woodbridge Smile Centre are here to help you forget about the anxiety and discomfort caused by yellow teeth.
Teeth whitening is a popular cosmetic procedure that is used to lighten the color of the teeth which are not as white as they were before. This may be because of smoking, poor oral hygiene, or certain foods and drinks.
– Dental veneers: Obtaining the perfect look
Are your teeth chipped or broken? Do you wish that you could change the color, shape or size of some of your teeth?
Dental veneers are thin shells of porcelain or composite resin that are placed on the your teeth to create a more harmonious and attractive appearance for your precious smile.
– Improving the appearance of your teeth with Dental Bonding
Minor imperfections such as cracks, chips and gaps can also be treated with a versatile procedure called dental bonding, which is the application of a tooth-colored composite resin material to repair the damages, closing gaps, improving tooth shape and size, covering discoloration and protecting exposed tooth roots in case of gum recessions.
At Woodbridge Smile Centre, we are committed to ensuring your optimal oral health by offering a comprehensive and high-quality range of general dentistry services from routine check-ups to professional treatments in a comfortable and welcoming environment.
