Getting to Know Your Dentist – What Services Do They Provide?

Do you ever wonder what services your dentist provides and why it’s important to make regular visits? A visit to the dentist isn’t just about getting your teeth cleaned – a variety of services are available to help you maintain good oral health.

From cosmetic treatments to restorative care, your dentist can help you look and feel your best. Learn more about your dentist and how they can help you achieve and maintain optimal oral health.

Dental Cleanings And Exams

You must take good care of your teeth to maintain excellent dental health. Your dentist will remove any tartar or buildup from your teeth during the cleaning and examination, and he or she may take X-rays to check for any potential problems.

Following that, they will go over the findings with you and talk about any potential therapies. Regular dental cleanups and checkups can minimize gum disease and other oral health problems.

X-Rays

X-rays are an important diagnostic tool for dentists to assess the health of your teeth and mouth. You can use them to detect decay, cavities, and other issues that cannot be seen with the naked eye.

 X-rays provide dentists with a detailed view of your teeth and gums that can help them make an accurate diagnosis.

Regularly getting x-rays also helps your dentist keep track of any changes or developments in your teeth, which is important for maintaining oral health.

Implants

Dental implants are artificial roots surgically placed into the jawbone to replace missing teeth. They look and function like natural teeth, a great option for replacing lost teeth.

At Cloverdale Dental Centre, we can fix your smile and boost your confidence with dental implant services. Our experienced dentists and specialists will assess your needs and determine the best action.

The procedure is typically completed over several months, but the implant will last a lifetime with proper care.

Dentures

Dentures are dental prosthetics used to replace missing teeth. Dentures can be full or partial and are custom-made for each patient. They are typically made from acrylic resin, metal, and porcelain to resemble natural teeth.

Full dentures are used when all of the teeth in an arch (either the upper or lower jaw) have been lost. Conversely, partial dentures are employed when some of the teeth in an arch have been lost.

Root Canal Therapy

During a root canal procedure, the dentist will remove any damaged or decayed parts of the tooth, clean and disinfect it, and then fill and seal it to repair and save a severely decayed or infected tooth.

The process helps to relieve any pain from the infection and prevents further damage to the tooth.

Extractions

At Cloverdale Dental Centre, we know that damage or decay can sometimes demand teeth extraction. To help relieve any discomfort or discomfort brought on by a broken or rotting tooth, we can offer tooth extractions and wisdom teeth removal.

For the procedure, we’ll offer a cozy, safe environment. When sedation dentistry is required, we will also employ local anesthetic to ensure you are at ease. Our staff will provide thorough information on caring for your teeth after your extraction to promote a quick and painless recovery.
