Achieve a Healthier Smile

At the top of your dental health New Year’s resolutions, you should be interested in achieving a healthier smile. In order to achieve a healthier smile, it’s important to take all of the available preventive dentistry options seriously. For example, you should be visiting us every 6 months for a dental exam and dental cleaning. During this visit with us, our Edmonton dentist examines your entire mouth to find cavities, decay, gum disease and signs of other problems like bruxism or TMJ. We diagnose these problems by giving you both a visual inspection as well as by taking x-rays. When we can diagnose problems early on, this will prevent you from needing expensive dental treatments and prevent you from experience severe dental pain. It’s important to visit us regularly so that we can take care of problems before they exponentially grow.

Also during your regular visits with our dentist, we give you a dental cleaning. Dental cleanings are also important because this is when we remove the stuck on plaque and tartar that can result in tooth decay or cavities. In addition, this prevents bad breath and gum disease. Tartar cannot be removed with brushing alone which is why it’s so important to visit the dentist.

Lastly, it’s important that you are taking care of your teeth at home. Your at-home routine is the most important part of achieving a healthier smile. For your dental health New Year’s Resolution, make sure that you are brushing at least twice a day and flossing once a day. You can take your at-home care to the next level by using a fluoride mouthwash, wearing a night guard if you need one, as well as rinsing your mouth with water or brushing your teeth after consuming sugary foods or drinks. With these recommendations, you can be on your way to a healthier smile in 2019.

Achieve a Restored Smile

Some of our patients are in need of restorations in order to achieve a healthier smile. Whether you have missing teeth, broken teeth, damaged teeth or infected teeth, our Edmonton dentist can help you restore your smile back to health and functionality.

If you are one of our patients who needs to restore your natural teeth back to health, we can remove cavities and decay and provide you with dental fillings, dental crowns or inlays and onlays to restore your teeth back to health and full strength.

If you have any missing teeth in your mouth, our dentist can provide you with dental implants, dental crowns, dental bridges as well as dentures to replace your missing teeth. It’s important to find a replacement for your missing teeth so that your smile is complete for eating and speaking properly. Not to mention, a complete mouth of teeth will give you more confidence than one that is filled with gaps. Discover all of our restorative dentistry options to restore your smile.

Achieve a More Beautiful Smile

If your smile is already healthy and functional, perhaps you aren’t completely happy with how it looks. Fortunately, we offer a selection of cosmetic dentistry treatments to help you achieve your ideal smile. If your teeth an unsymmetrical or oddly shaped, porcelain veneers or dental bonding can help you reshape your teeth to complement your face and surrounding teeth. We also offer professional teeth whitening treatments for patients who may have stained or yellow teeth they are unhappy with. Professional teeth whitening can brighten your teeth up to 8 shades lighter than what they currently are.

Treat Your Sleep Apnea

Our dentist can also help you treat your sleep apnea in 2019. If you have been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea by your physician, our dentist can provide you with an oral appliance to help you sleep through the night without snoring or interruption. Oral appliances help push your jaw forward to open your airway while you sleep. This comfortable sleep apnea treatment feels a lot like wearing a mouth guard to sleep. It’s the most ideal treatment for patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea. We also offer CPAP therapy for those with more severe cases of sleep apnea. Consult with our dentist to find the right treatment option for you.

Treat Your TMJ Pain

If you experience jaw pain regularly, there is a good chance that you have TMJ. TMJ can also result in headaches as well as neck pain or ear pain. Our dentist is highly trained in TMJ treatment and would be happy to relieve you of the TMJ pain you experience. Through a variety of tests, we can determine the cause of your TMJ pain and provide you with the ideal treatment option for your personal case.
