Checkups & Cleanings

Keeping your smile healthy and functional requires regular dental cleanings. These visits involve a skilled dental hygienist using specialized tools to remove stubborn plaque, tartar, and bacteria that brushing and flossing alone can’t eliminate.
Neglecting regular cleanings allows bacteria to accumulate, leading to tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health complications. Moreover, these cleanings contribute to fresh breath and maintain the vibrant appearance of your teeth.

In addition to cleanings, routine dental checkups are vital for optimal oral health. During these appointments, your SW Edmonton dentist thoroughly examines your teeth, gums, and mouth to detect any potential issues. By addressing dental problems early on, your dentist can prevent them from worsening and becoming more challenging to treat, ultimately saving you time, money, and discomfort in the future.

Oral Cancer Screening

Regular dental checkups include a vital oral cancer screening where your dentist carefully examines your mouth, tongue, and throat for any signs of cancer or precancerous conditions.
The primary objective of oral cancer screening is to detect mouth cancer in its early stages, as it increases the likelihood of successful treatment. Early identification and prompt intervention can greatly enhance your chances of a favourable prognosis.
Most dentists conduct a comprehensive examination of your mouth during a routine dental visit to screen for oral cancer. In some cases, additional tests such as special lights or dyes might be utilized to assist in identifying any abnormal cell areas in your mouth.

Wisdom Tooth Removal

When a wisdom tooth lacks sufficient space to grow correctly, it can become impacted, leading to dental problems, infection, and pain. In such situations, removing the wisdom tooth is often necessary to alleviate discomfort and prevent potential complications. Depending on the case’s complexity, either a dentist or an oral surgeon can perform the extraction. To ensure your comfort, the area will be numbed using a local anesthetic, and additional sedation options might be available to help you relax throughout the procedure.

Root Canal Therapy

Root canal treatment is a procedure to rescue an infected or extensively decayed natural tooth. The dentist removes the infected pulp from the root canal and meticulously cleans and disinfects the inner part of the tooth, preventing the infection from spreading.
Although root canal treatment may have been known for causing discomfort or pain in the past, advancements in techniques and the use of anesthesia have made the procedure relatively comfortable for most patients.
