Family DentistryCavities

Cavities occur when tooth decay creates a hole in the tooth. Deep cavities allow bacteria to get into the pulp chamber of the tooth, which can cause infection. Almost everyone has experienced a cavity at some point in their life. Although they are very common, they are 100% preventable with daily brushing and flossing.

Fillings

It’s important that cavities are treated promptly to avoid infection, toothache and root canals. Once a filling has lost its seal, a cavity will quickly form.

Wisdom Teeth

Through the course of evolution, the human jaw has decreased in size, but the number of teeth remains the same. When wisdom teeth make their appearance, there’s often not enough room to accommodate them. Removal of wisdom teeth is recommended when there is an opportunity for infection to arise or when they create discomfort.

Root Canal

Do I need A Root Canal? The whole purpose of a root canal is to save your tooth from an infected tooth and/or tooth decay. A root canal is required when the nerve of the tooth has been infected. A root canal removes the infected nerve area of the tooth before it is cleaned and sealed to prevent tooth decay from reoccurring. The only alternative is to remove the tooth and then replace it with an artificial one (bridge or implant).

Braces (orthodontics)

Braces are the effective for straightening teeth – especially when teeth are severely crowded. The investment in braces can give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of. However, having a beautiful smile isn’t just about aesthetics, having properly aligned teeth can positively affect your dental health. It’s a lot easier to clean straight teeth which is essential for keeping your teeth and gums healthy.
