Yes, we have our own private parking lot with ample spaces.
Yes, we are an assignment office which means that the office will submit most insurance claims electronically to the insurance company and payment for dental services is sent directly to our office. A dental insurance plan is a contract between the policy holder and the insurance company; however, we try to assist patients when possible with navigating their insurance plans.
We follow the suggested fee schedule outlined in the Ontario Dental Association Fee Guide. We will work within your budget for all your dental care needs.
Our office uses only digital radiographs which emit approximately one-tenth the radiation as conventional radiographs.
It is recommended that children have a dental exam approximately six months after the eruption of their first tooth.
The first dental visit will be fun! It will familiarize the child to the dental setting; and an exam and polish will be completed if possible. Oral hygiene and diet instructions will be discussed. Also, it is a great time to ask any questions you may have about your child and their teeth. Join our “calling all 3 year olds” program.
Calling all 3 years is a program we run at our office to get young children more acquainted with their dental visits. This program gives the children the opportunity to spend time in our family dental practice in a positive setting. There is plenty of time for the children to ask questions, see, touch, and hear the sounds the equipment makes, giving them a better sense of what to expect during their dental hygiene visits. This fun, interactive visit is finished off in our waiting room with a snack for the young ones.
Yes! Kids need to floss just as much as an adult: everyday, once a day at minimum.
Sealants are a protective coating placed onto the grooves of permanent teeth to prevent cavities from starting. Usually they are placed after complete eruption of the permanent molars.
Yes. Dental decay can occur as soon as children have teeth. Dental decay progresses faster in children, so it is recommended x-rays occur on a regular basis as prescribed by the dentist.
A comprehensive oral exam is needed to evaluate and diagnose all conditions of the dentition and surrounding oral cavity. A new patient exam includes bitewing x-rays and a panoramic radiograph in addition to photographs. At the end of the exam the dentist will discuss all the findings and show the patient the x-rays and photos. Also, the patient is encouraged to ask questions and discuss any concerns.
A root canal is a treatment needed to remove diseased or injured nerve tissue from a tooth. There are several indications for this procedure including severe tooth decay, deep fillings, a cracked tooth or trauma to a tooth. At our office, the dentist will completely anesthetize the affected tooth and surrounding tissues to ensure comfort during the procedure.
A crown is a complete covering of a tooth in order to protect the tooth after major treatment such as large fillings and root canals. A crown also serves to protect the tooth from further fracture if a tooth has cracked.
Tooth whitening is a process where the tooth structure is lightened in colour by placing solution onto the tooth. Most stains and discoloration can be removed with whitening, however a dentist should complete an examination to evaluate the teeth prior to starting a whitening regime. We also offer take-home whitening trays that you can use while sitting and watching TV!
Moderation is key: occasional whitening of teeth is not usually problematic; however, if used too frequently the enamel or the root structure of the teeth can be damaged. Your dentist will suggest an appropriate whitening schedule.
A night guard is a custom made, thin, acrylic appliance that when worn protects the teeth from the damage of grinding or clenching. It can also help ease symptoms of headaches associated with teeth grinding and clenching.
It is recommended that participants in certain sports, especially contact sports, should wear a mouth guard. The mouth guard can minimize the risk of fractured teeth, cut lips and damage to your mouth. A mouth guard can also reduce the occurrence of concussions when worn as directed.
A schedule for teeth cleaning and dental health maintenance should be established after a complete dental examination, including radiographs. Most people should have their teeth professionally cleaned by a dentist or dental hygienist every 6 months. However, some people may need more frequent visits to keep their teeth and gums healthy.
Dental radiographs allow the dentist to see what is happening inside the teeth and under the gum tissues. The x-rays allow us to examine for cavities, periodontal disease, bone loss, infections, tooth formation and growth as well as normal tooth eruption patterns.
It is recommended to brush a minimum of two times per day. But if you only do it once a day, we recommend just before bed as your nightly routine.
Flossing is recommended to remove plaque from between the teeth, a space that is not reached by tooth brushing alone. Plaque between teeth causes cavities and contributes to gingivitis and gum disease. If you have a hard time reaching with traditional dental floss, we recommend you use floss picks or a water pick.
