At our dental clinic, we use cutting-edge technology to help our patients with high-quality dental solutions. Our x-ray technology enables us to get a complete picture of your dental health and history and spot issues that might not be visible in an oral exam. For instance, an x-ray can show us the decay that might be occurring beneath your filling. These examinations help us spot the symptoms of diseases and provide preventative care.
In order to get the clearest picture possible, with in-depth detail from all angles, we use the following types of x-rays:
Digital X-Rays – Requires less radiation and the film is processed immediately. Digital x-rays can be enlarged and archived.
Digital Panoramic X-Rays – 2-dimensional dental x-ray which records your mouth from ear to ear.
General Dentistry Services
Our general dentistry services include a broad range of solutions designed to monitor your dental health, diagnose and prevent diseases and treat oral problems. Our services are designed to provide individualized care to all of our patients. The broad scope of general dentistry treatments we provide include:
Preventative care: Our preventative care focuses on limiting the growth of dental problems with solutions such as regular oral exams, x-rays and teeth cleanings, sealants and more. In children, preventative care encourages the healthy development of teeth.
Diagnostic services: We have the expertise and technology to identify the cause of your dental problem. When you visit us for regular oral exams, we can identify the early onset of disease and provide timely intervention.
Restorative care: Our general dentistry services in Yonge & Eglinton also involve providing restorative treatments for a complete list of dental problems. We can offer effective solutions to dental concerns such as cavities, chipped teeth, missing teeth and more.
Overall oral health: We believe that maintaining good oral health requires healthy habits such as brushing your teeth, flossing, regular visits to us and maintaining your overall health and well-being. We educate our clients about the proper practices and help them achieve a healthy smile.
All of our general dentistry services go hand in hand to provide you with efficient dental solutions. For instance, our diagnostic services allow us to identify dental problems, which in turn lets us provide you with the right treatments.
Regular Dental Cleanings Could Benefit More than Just Your Mouth!
When it comes to your dental health, prevention is always better than cure. Regular visits to us, oral examinations and dental cleanings are the cornerstones of preventative dentistry. These services, in addition to following healthy dental practices, can help you avoid extensive dental treatments.
We can educate you on how to maintain your oral hygiene in-between dental visits and ensure that you are equipped with the right tools to get the job done effectively. Tartar build-up on your teeth contributes to periodontal disease, which is correlated to coronary artery disease and may put you at risk of experiencing a heart attack. To create an ideal dental experience, our dentists use the latest technology and industry knowledge to treat patients.
The following are some common questions our general dentists in Yonge and Eglinton receive:
When Should I First Bring In My Child to See the Dentist?
According to the Canadian Dental Association, you should have your baby examined by a dentist within six months after the first tooth comes in or when they are one year old. Dental visits every six months after that will ensure the healthy development of teeth. If they experience any problems, we will nip them in the bud.
Can Teeth Whitening Damage Teeth?
No, it can't. Professional teeth whitening performed by a trained dentist will not cause harm to your teeth and gums. It is a safe and effective way to lighten your teeth and improve your smile.
How Often Should I Brush and Floss My Teeth?
We recommend brushing and flossing your teeth two times a day, in the morning and night. Doing so will minimize plaque and decrease the risk of gum disease and tooth decay. Along with this, routine dental examinations and cleaning will keep your teeth healthy.
What Are Sealants?
Sealants are plastic-like coatings that we apply to the crevices in the back teeth- your molars and premolars. The coatings function as a barrier and prevent food and plaque from getting trapped and leading to cavities.
Do I Have the Option of Straightening My Teeth as an Adult?
Yes, you have many available dental treatments to help you straighten your teeth as an adult. We can help you align and straighten your teeth with veneers, orthodontics, and more.
