DENTAL SERVICES GENERAL EXAMS COMPOSITE FILLINGS WHITENING PORCELAIN CROWNS GENERAL EXAMS GENERAL EXAMS More than just a “checkup”, we evaluate your jaw muscles, jaw joint (TMJ), occlusion (or “bite”) and how they can lead to future tooth wear/pain. We do an oral cancer screening at every exam, and closely examine your gums for gum disease, inflammation and bone loss. Additionally, we examine each and every tooth for cracks, decay, broken fillings, and discolouration, and use a couple of different cameras so that we can show you on a computer monitor what your teeth look like up close! COMPOSITE FILLINGS COMPOSITE FILLINGS & ORAL SEDATIONIf a tooth has a small to medium size cavity or an old previous filling is broken down and leaking, we can remove the problem area and place a tooth-coloured composite resin filling in to repair it. WHITENING WHITENINGLooking for a brighter smile? We offer take-home whitening kits! Custom-fit trays are made that hold a whitening gel against your teeth at home when it suits your schedule. PORCELAIN CROWNS PORCELAIN CROWNSA porcelain crown is a durable restoration that covers the biting surface of the tooth and wraps around it 360 degrees in order to seal the tooth and hold it together to prevent it from breaking down more. Crowns are also usually needed after a root canal on a back tooth to prevent future leakage, re-infection, or irreparable tooth fracture. CHILDREN'S DENTISTRY ROOT CANAL THERAPY EXTRACTIONS SPORTS GUARDS CHILDREN'S DENTISTRY CHILDREN'S DENTISTRYFrom “happy visits” for your inquisitive little one, to routine exams, cleaning, and filling appointments for your older ones, we’re happy to see your kids here at Auburn Bay Dental. We follow the Canadian Dental Association’s guideline by recommending the dental assessment of an infant within 6 months of the eruption of the first tooth or by one year of age. ROOT CANAL THERAPY ROOT CANAL THERAPYSometimes teeth with deep decay, large cracks, or abscesses end up needing root canal therapy in order to get you feeling comfortable. By removing the infected, inflamed, and painful internal nerve and replacing it with a filling material, we can get you out of pain while still saving your tooth. EXTRACTIONS EXTRACTIONSWhen a tooth declines to the point that we can’t save it, we may recommend that it be removed so that it does not cause further pain or damage to adjacent teeth. We strive to make our extractions as quick and low-stress as possible. You’ll have the option of grafting the extraction site if you wish replace the tooth with an implant in the future. SPORTS GUARDS SPORTS GUARDSThese are a MUST for you hockey/football/rugby players, as well as MMA/boxers. Not only can they help reduce concussive effects, but wearing one can help save you from months of costly treatment to fix a blow to your teeth. BRIDGES 3D SCANS INVISALIGN BRIDGES BRIDGESA bridge helps replace a missing tooth. The two teeth on either side of the missing-tooth-gap have a thin layer of tooth structure removed just like with a crown, and then a porcelain bridge consisting of “two crowns connected by an artificial tooth” is made to fill the gap. 3D SCANS 3D SCANSThis is one of the more ground-breaking advances in dentistry. Our 3-D technology has far less radiation compared to the machines used in hospitals and the medical field, yet provides us with a lot of useful information about your oral health. With one image, we can examine your upper and lower jaws in 3 views for bone cysts, certain tumours, airway issues, jaw joint degradation, sinus infections, chronic infections around any of your teeth roots, and the shape and positions of the nerves in and around teeth, which helps make treatment more predictable. INVISALIGN INVISALIGN Invisalign invisibly straightens your teeth with a series of custom-molded aligners. That's right: orthodontics that give you the smile you always wanted without bands, brackets or wires. By using a series of clear removable aligners, Invisalign straightens your teeth right before your eyes. Change them about every 2 weeks, your teeth will move—little by little, week by week—until they have moved to their final position. Comfortable to wear, our aligners are also removable so you can eat, drink, brush, and floss as usual.
