At Trillium Smile Dentistry we believe in preventive dentistry. Regular dental cleaning is the most important way of maintaining your oral health. When you visit us for dental cleanings, our registered dental hygienists provide oral cancer screening and the dentist checks your teeth to ensure they are in good status. We take X-Rays every year to detect any dental cavities, fractures or infections.
The typical process of a cleaning visit includes:
- First you rinse with antibacterial mouthwash
- Then removing tartars above and under your gum line around your teeth will be performed. Our Hygienists will perform this gently by special instruments and make sure you are comfortable during the whole appointment.
- Polishing with special paste will be done after your teeth are cleaned to remove any stains and give you refresh feeling.
- The dentist will come to check your teeth after they are cleaned.
- At the end Flouride paste will be applied to your teeth to make them stronger against dental cavities.
Dental Fillings are used to help restore teeth that have been damaged by cavities or fractures. A “filling” helps repair the tooth in a way so it can return to its normal shape and function. It also helps prevent the tooth from decaying more and causing more damage. Fillings are made from different materials including composite resin and Amalgam.
Root Canal Therapy consists of the removal of infected or damaged pulp and nerves from the tooth’s root canal system. Using specialized tools and files, your tooth’s chamber is cleaned and washed thoroughly, and also the root canal system is shaped to be ready for the final filling inside the canals. The interior of your tooth is then filled to protect against infection and, finally, fitted with a crown to restore your tooth’s natural look, as well as protecting it from further fractures.
Removing a tooth can be frightening and sound painful. When it is necessary to remove a tooth, we make sure you are comfortable and pain free during the procedure. Depends on the situation, Dr. Tousi might recommend to have bone graft to prevent further bone los after extracting the tooth. We always discuss options for replacing missing teeth before hand and if necessary, we make arrangements for immediate replacement so you don’t walk out without a tooth.
Crowns and bridges
Crown (or cap) is a covering that encases the entire tooth above the gum line, restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown protects and strengthens your tooth structure that cannot be restored with fillings or other types of restorations.
Although there are several types of crowns, porcelain (tooth colored crown) are the most popular. They are highly durable and will last many years. Porcelain crowns are made to match the shape, size, and color of your natural teeth.
Reasons for crowns and bridges include:
- Broken or fractured teeth.
- Missing teeth.
- Cosmetic enhancement.
- Decayed teeth.
- Fractured fillings.
- Large fillings.
- After root canal treatment.
