What to Expect from Your First Visit?
When you first visit us, our experienced dentist will carefully listen to you, and understand your needs and concerns regarding your oral health. We will collect information through a physical examination of your head, neck, jaws, throat, and mouth. These are some of the things that you can expect during your first dental appointment with us:
Analysis of your dental and medical history so we can be aware of any issues or concerns
Teeth examination to check for decays, cracks, and worn restorations
Checking for inflammation, a TMJ (jaw joint) assessment, bite issues, or tenderness
Low-radiation, chemical-free digital X-ray that show us infection, decay, and bone condition
Digital photographs to magnify our view of your teeth and any restorations
Discussion of any problems or expectations you may have
Based on the findings, our dentist will then recommend a treatment that may be necessary, explain the procedures, and review the steps and appointments involved. Our treatment coordinator will meet and discuss the new findings. If you have any questions or concerns, we are ready to help you. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
Oral Hygiene for Adults
When you meet one of our registered dental hygienists at Floss & Smile Dental Practice, you will receive more than just a cleaning. Our certified dentist will do an in-depth examination of the hard and soft tissues of the oral cavity. We will then take digital X-rays as necessary and do a comprehensive screening for periodontal disease, gingivitis as well as oral cancer. Years of wear and tear, including wine and coffee stains, can take their toll on our teeth. Regular cleaning and check-ups are essential to maintaining gums and healthy teeth. So make sure you see your dentist at least twice a year. A healthy and happy mouth is something to smile about. All our hygienists demonstrate a sincere desire to ensure each client experiences the most relaxed dental care possible. Also, we work with each client on a one-on-one basis to develop a personalized and effective home care routine based on their individual needs.
Children’s Dental Health Program
The skilled and experienced dentist at Floss & Smile Dental Practice has designed this program to prevent early tooth decay in children. We have Level II dental assistants and dental hygienists who provide you with high-quality examinations and cleaning for young children and teenagers. The program involves a complete examination of your child’s oral health, removal of plaque and tartar, nutrition guidelines, preventive agents and a hands-on demonstration to ensure proper home care between dental appointments. Our certified professionals work with children and parents to make sure home care routines and proper maintenance visits help children to have happy and healthy smiles.
Oral Hygiene Instruction Program
The program is aimed at targeting bacterial toxins that are responsible for periodontal disease and gingivitis. We educate parents on the existing disease theory and the primary factors that can lead to periodontitis and gingivitis. Our professionals have adopted a hands-on approach to teach parents how to implement safe and effective treatments to precisely target inflammation.
Restorative – Composite Fillings
Restorative dentistry procedures involve the diagnosis and treatment of oral conditions affecting the jaw, teeth, and gums. A composite (tooth-coloured) filling is used to repair a tooth that is affected by cracks, decay, or fractures. The affected or decayed portion of the tooth will be removed and then filled with a composite filling. These fillings can also be used to close spaces between teeth and fix chipped or worn teeth. Composite fillings restore and mimic the natural appearance of the tooth structure and are also known as white fillings. Additionally, these tooth-coloured fillings may also be used cosmetically to change the colour, size, and shape of teeth.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is needed when the nerve of a tooth is affected by decay or infection. This happens when decay has reached the tooth pulp (the living tissue inside the tooth), an infection or abscess has developed inside the tooth or at the root tip, or injury or trauma to the tooth has occurred. To save the tooth, we disinfect the area, and the resulting space is filled with medicated and special dental materials that will restore the tooth to its full function. Signs and symptoms for possible root canal therapy are severe toothache pain, sensitivity to hot and cold, an abscess on the gums, swelling and/or tenderness, and sometimes, there may not be any symptoms at all.
