Prophylaxis (preventive action against disease)
- Periodontal hygiene maintenance cleanings (with periodontal pocket measurements and fluoride application)
A number of systemic (“throughout the body”) diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease, have been shown to be co-related to poor oral and dental health, so maintaining a comprehensive routine of professional dental care could help to prevent the occurrence of much more catastrophic illnesses in your life. Other preventative measures we offer include:
Oral Cancer Screening (similar to a regular skin check-up)
Any type of cancer can have far-reaching and long-lasting effects. A thorough look around the mouth for suspicious looking tissue(s), including around and under the tongue, the palate, and the vestibules of the cheeks and lips, is a very important part of your dental exam. In the event that something suspicious is found, a gentle brush biopsy can be taken and sent to a laboratory for analysis. Catching and treating cancer early is always the best strategy.
Your gum health will be evaluated during every hygiene appointment. Gum disease is best treated when it is caught early, so we check your periodontal health carefully.
Tooth pain may be caused by a chipped filling. During your check-up, your dentist will check your tooth fillings and may suggest replacement of any loose, broken or cracked teeth. Your dentist also looks for signs of decay, such as brown or black spots, and may require X-rays to make a complete diagnosis.
If you have a cavity, your dentist may choose to keep an eye on it (if it’s small) or fill it right away. If a large cavity is left untreated, it can get bigger and cause pain. The tooth may even have to be removed and replaced with a false (artificial) tooth.
If a cavity is present and a filling is suggested, there are generally two kinds of fillings available:
While dental amalgam is the most common type of filling used in Canada today, other filling materials, such as gold and silver are also available. The dentist can help you choose a material that is right for your specific oral health needs.
Composite fillings and fillings made out of glass ionomer materials and are the same colour as your natural teeth. These fillings are often a good option for children since their teeth are still changing. Also, they can discharge fluoride, which can help in preventing tooth decay.
Rooth Planing and Scaling
Root planing and scaling is the most effective way to treat gum disease before it becomes severe and chronic. It is also usually the first step in treating more advanced periodontal disease. It is an important part of your oral health, cleaning between the gums and the teeth down to the roots.
Some dentists and dental hygienists will use an ultrasonic tool for the planing and scaling. This tool is not as uncomfortable as a standard scraping tool, but not all cleanings require this type of tool.
Your dentist may place antibiotic fibres into the pockets between your teeth and gums. The antibiotic will help speed healing and prevent infection. The dentist will remove the fibres about one week after the procedure.
Fixed Partial Dentures
Dentures offer an alternative for missing teeth that can be readjusted if taken out from your mouth. While dentures may not feel exactly the same as one’s natural teeth and might take some time to get used to, today’s dentures are natural looking and more comfortable than ever.
There are two main types of dentures: full and partial. Your dentist will help you choose the type of denture that’s best for you, based on whether some or all of your teeth are going to be replaced and the cost involved.
Removable partial dentures generally consist of substitute teeth that are affixed to a gum-coloured plastic base, which is held in place in the mouth by a metal frame.
The plate may be a combination of metal and plastic or fashioned entirely of plastic. Both types may have clips that help to keep the denture in its place. Some of these clips may be visible while smiling or talking, if they are at the front side of the mouth.
Besides filling in the spaces formed by missing teeth, partial dentures keep other teeth from shifting position. Partial dentures are removable and have internal attachments.
Root Canal Treatment
Crowns and Bridges
Ceramic dental crowns enclose the outside portion of a damaged tooth completely, providing protection against further damage and improving the cosmetic appearance, alignment or shape of the tooth. A crown can also be positioned on top of an implant in order to provide a tooth-like shape for functioning.
Unlike dentures, crowns and bridges are cemented prosthetic devices. They are fixed onto existing teeth or implants and can only be detached by a dentist. Bridges are usually used for replacing one or more missing teeth by spanning the space where there are no teeth. They can be affixed to implants, or to the natural teeth surrounding the empty space. While crowns and bridges are for a lifetime, they do sometimes get loose or fall out.
Athletic Mouth Guard
By distributing the force of a blow equally throughout the entire mouth, athletic mouth guards can prevent painful injuries and save your family thousands of dollars in unnecessary dental work.
Athletically-minded people in and around Winnipeg may purchase a “one-size-fits-all” mouth guard from a sporting goods store. This is a common and convenient choice for many, especially parents whose children are involved in sports. However, custom-fitted, professionally made mouth guards are superior for several reasons:
Material used in custom mouth guards is stronger
More comfortable to wear
Will not interrupt breathing or speech
Matched specifically to your teeth and offer substantially more support against impact
Custom athletic mouth guards offered at our office are made from exact models of your teeth. This allows us to ensure that every tooth is properly protected and that the jaw and gums are supported. This level of protection is simply not available from store-bought varieties of mouth guards.
