Our Services

Emergency Care

We offer emergency care or consultation to all our patients. We also offer such care to athletes of Huskie Athletics. If you require attention during office hours, we will do our best to accommodate you in a timely manner. If you are seeking attention outside office hours, please call the office and follow call instructions indicated. Non-patients are welcome to call during office hours to become a patient. Should immediate attention be required outside such hours, care should be sought from your family dentist with your relevant dental history or the resident hospital dentist.

During after-hours emergent care visits or consultations, efforts will be made to remove the emergent nature, alleviate swelling, bleeding, damage that which can be reversed, where possible lessen pain, and decide a course of action. Definitive treatment and restoration may often be carried out at a future appointment when the treatment necessitated has been fully assessed and appropriate time appointed. We always do our best to do what we can to keep things timely, convenient, and dealt with definitively while respecting others as we would hope for ourselves. During office hours we are inclined to take things further upon evaluation. Please make us aware of your circumstances surrounding access to care.

Kids Dentist

It is recommended by the Canadian Dental Association that a child is brought for oral assessment to their family dentist within 6 months of the first tooth erupting or 1 year of age.

Early childhood dental disease remains a significant problem, as evidenced by numbers of children treated in hospitals for severe decay. Early childhood dental disease also has the potential to adversely affect the general health of young children.
The Canadian Dental Association encourages this assessment, by the dentist, to determine special risk, appropriate interventions and/or periodicity of future dental assessments. Special risk patients may require frequent assessments in order to determine appropriate management strategies.

We are all aware that several people deal with an aversion to dentistry. We are here to help. We all have an aversion to discomfort or pain and want to ensure things do not escalate such that we have to endure. Unfortunately some children will act out when a spoon is introduced to their mouth. Our imposition is no different in nature. Our intentions are good as yours are during feeding. Some children are strong willed and we need you on our side if a child looks to you to see if avoidance of the unknown is acceptable. Our will for their wellbeing must outweigh and sway their notion. We will keep them as comfortable as possible throughout any process and together we will help aim to prevent the need for initial and ongoing treatment intervention.knight

We have access to milder forms of sedation in Nitrous Oxide if deemed appropriate. We also work on a referral basis with providers in specialist and hospital settings to deliver deeper sedation as required. However, such sedation and need is not to be taken lightly. While we are grateful to have access to such provisions, together we can work to reduce the need. Children are our most non-compliant patient population at home or otherwise. As such we and they need your help for betterment of health.

Cosmetic Dentistry

All dentistry performed should have consideration of esthetics. All dentistry performed should also have consideration of strength and durability. Ideally a compromise would not exist, the starting point would be ideal, and cost would never be a factor. In treatment, all outcomes must be considered and expectations match. It is a balance of all factors involved. Fortunately, advances are always being made to have these realms on the same page.

Within this domain would be veneers, bonding, whitening, etc. It is anything done to mask or alter that which was previously there and maximizing esthetics as the outcome. There is no such sub-specialty. However, outcomes can be maximized with sound treatment planning, execution, and commitment to preventative maintenance.

We take great pride in offering esthetic enhancements with excellence in execution. We are protective of our patients. We offer the latest proven advancements while filtering out the gimmicks. In our patient’s earned trust we carry out these procedures to fulfill any dental wants and not just needs. As beauty is in the eye of the beholder, we choose not to ‘sell’ such procedures or misrepresent as ‘needed’. However, as self-consciousness can often reside in a person’s smile, we love to help people! Ask how we can help!

Oral surgery

As surgery by definition is the treatment of injuries or disorders of the body by incision or manipulation, especially with instruments, much of what we do can be classified as surgery. In many places our dental offices or clinics are called dental surgeries and our designations as a Doctor of Dental Medicine or Doctor of Dental Surgery analogous. A designation of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgeon (OMFS) is an internationally recognized specialty that specializes in treating many diseases, injuries and defects in the head, neck, face, jaws and the hard and soft tissues of the Oral (mouth) and Maxillofacial (jaws and face) region. As the breadth of involvement of your particular oral surgery increases or compromise of your condition, we will work in conjunction with the OMFS to ensure your surgical needs are met.

Oral surgery may be elective, necessitated by disease or injury, or part of a rehabilitative process. Risk via surgical manipulation is always apparent; however we want to minimize risk while maximizing reward. Alternate options are often not available with potential consequences to not receiving treatment far outweighing such risks. Such risk includes the potential of damage to surrounding structures which may be reversible or irreversible, pain, swelling, numbness, opportunistic infection, and prolonged bleeding. Following surgery we want to ensure nothing interferes with the healing process. Follow our given surgical instructions to keep the healing process as uneventful as possible. If you are experiencing any unforeseen difficulties please contact us so we can determine a course of action.

Root canals

Root canal therapy is our way of trying to save a tooth once bacteria have had an opportunity to invade and access has been gained to the pulp or middle of the tooth. This invasion can happen via softening (decay) or via a crack. It may sometimes be used preemptively when bacterial invasion is imminent, the resultant trauma to a tooth requires the inside to be occupied for reconstruction, or the contents of the tooth have been rendered lifeless due to trauma. Without such treatment the root structure or foundation of the tooth will be lost due to nature’s attempt to rid bacteria and any bodies viewed as foreign.
Pain usually ensues upon the encroachment of bacteria through the protective layers of the tooth to the inside. Following invasion a period may be once again ‘pain free’ as the nerve, blood vessels and tooth contents become necrotic or die off and turn to ‘mush/ rot’. As the bacterial load harbored within the tooth multiplies, pressure is created and an attempt is made to find a path of escape. If the same path upon which it entered still exists in the top of the tooth pressure may not build to any extent and still no perception of something going on. If the pressure build up is relatively sealed at the top, an alternative path of escape is sought via the bottom or tooth root and an abscess is created. This pressure build up of bacteria can be very painful and also dangerous travelling the path of least resistance. Once escape is achieved, again things may be ‘pain-free’; however the source still remains of harbored bacteria.

As pain fluctuates throughout this process, it is important to not use pain as your guide for a perceived problem. Consult us. Pain or sensitivity alone may not necessarily be an indicator of resultant damage and thus a problem per se. Pain can also be induced when a tooth is subjected to anything in excess. Most commonly these are bacteria (acids) and force. Often if we control what a tooth is being subjected to, the resultant pain can be dissipated or eliminated before limits or thresholds are exceeded and damage ensues. Different barriers have different thresholds but often even a less robust barrier can be quite adequate if not facing extremes. Allow us to help your teeth not reach this point where damage results and treatment, repair or establishment of a better barrier becomes necessary. A little prevention can go a long way in keeping things comfortable and from not exceeding limitations; most damage is preventable. Furthermore, once damage occurs and the repair process is complete, if the underlying cause that led us down this path is not addressed you may still have symptoms or result in further damage as the insulting agent (bacteria/ force) is still encountered.

Unfortunately root canal therapy does not guarantee salvage of a tooth when damage of this degree requiring such necessary treatment has occurred. The attempt to rid a tooth of bacteria may turn futile and evaluations made for replacement alternatives. Antibiotics can get to the surrounding area of a tooth where it has a blood supply; however, as previously mentioned this vasculature or branch extension is non-existent in a dead tooth and as such the breeding grounds cannot be eliminated by other means. Bacteria can also become substantiated along the side of a tooth via its portal of entrance or path of escape and create irreversible damage. Bacteria can also remain inaccessible internally within a crack, obstructed or unidentified canals, lateral canals and anatomical restrictions. Even the process of negotiating such can result in hiding spots for bacteria. This may necessitate further treatment such as treatment from the other end (apicoectomy), retreatment, and even extraction.

While sometimes the process of root canal therapy may be technically possible, the probability for long term success restorative or otherwise may also negate this and make viable replacement alternatives a better option. Allow us to help guide you through this process of informed decisions and courses of treatment.

Implant Dentistry

Implants act as an anchorage device. This anchorage may be desired temporarily or permanently. These typically titanium anchors are biocompatible with the body and can offer replacement options within the mouth just as we have artificial replacements for a joint. They can be utilized as a single tooth root to support a crown for single tooth replacement or act together as a support for a larger spanning structure. What the structure is, where it is located within the mouth, anatomical limitations, esthetics, strength, permanence, etc, all factor into how much support or anchorage is required as a foundation and where they may be placed. These larger spanning structures may be an anchored denture, crown and bridge work fixed in place, or a substructure such as a bar that in turn supports an overlying structure.

Essentially we start with where we want to be as a final result and work backwards to plan from there as to how we go about achieving that. Often there is more than one possible end result and we work with you to decide which path we should take. Sometimes the supporting bone and or soft tissues require augmentation in order to achieve the desired end result. These structures support or frame the implant and superstructures and are imperative they are evaluated and any deficiencies addressed before, during, and after implant therapy, along with the cause of such deficiencies.

As each case is different and each patient, all cases are evaluated on an individual basis. We will guide you throughout this process and act to sometimes carry them out and sometimes act to oversee this process in a collaborative effort.

Unfortunately, we can never gain back exactly what has been lost, but we would like to help you achieve optimal replacements and thus the next best thing.

Placement and restoration is only part of the picture. We have to keep in mind that often limitations were exceeded for something that was once very strong and durable in natural teeth resulting in loss and want to ensure any investment in replacement is protected. With our guidance, ongoing care, utilization of high quality materials only from reputable manufactures, proven techniques, infection control, result back approach, and your ongoing efforts to keep bacteria at a minimum and controlling detrimental force, this has become a very viable and predictive form of mouth rehabilitation for suitable patients. We will help determine your suitability as a candidate and how we can achieve your optimal oral health.

Check Up and Oral Hygiene

Your optimal oral health can only be measured and achieved with regular evaluation and preventive maintenance. It is our goal to have our patients in ‘maintenance mode’ where together we negate the ongoing need for restorative treatment as the oral environment remains strong and resistant to all that attempts to infiltrate and tip the scales to a ‘diseased’ state. Where required for protection or desired for esthetics we provide the latest proven types of restorations. While we take pride in our restorative skills, our goal is prevention and a little maintenance can go a long way in preservation.

Regular evaluation should be sought from our dentists at least once per year and more often when the ability to maintain has not been apparent or at higher risk. If the protective state has been rendered inadequate, the resultant damage can compound rather quickly. As such, yearly evaluation is well worth assessment for compromised oral health regardless of long track records. Preventive maintenance with professional oral hygiene visits or cleanings should be sought every six months and again more frequently as recommended. Even with good oral hygiene, the minutes we spend for our teeth each day do not equate to the hours against and the scales are not tipped in our favour. Professional debridement helps keep the build up that harbours bacteria at bay. It further provides a smooth surface which is more resistant to taking on that build up in the first place. Regular professional cleanings followed up with diligent regular home care is critical to counter the constant bacterial invasion attempt that is made by bacteria.

We want to ensure your teeth and supportive structures are being maintained. We require them to be capable of meeting the requirements of forces generated to keep ourselves nourished with eating. If they are not capable of meeting these demands either breakdown happens of the structure or our ability to nourish diminishes. We also generate force on our teeth during times when we are not eating (often unintentionally/ or not to our awareness). Ultimately if this force is not exceeding limitations then we are fine, but if it is, again damage ensues. This resultant damage can be subtle and seemingly unrelated to the underlying cause. Allow us to help identify the subtle helpers and hinderers, customized to each individual, that have acted for and against you to reach the state in which your oral environment resides today.

In general, teeth are very robust. If we were to place them on the table-top they would last an eternity. It is always what they are subjected to that causes them to breakdown from their original state in which they were developed or restored. Together, we can work to keep the oral environment in a controlled state that tooth longevity for a lifetime should be easily manageable with confidence. Keep your teeth for life!
