That old saying still rings true, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” That is why one of our main objectives in our patient care is helping you achieve and maintain a lifetime of prime oral health. Routine dental visits and professional cleanings are an essential part of this service, providing early detection and control of periodontal or gum diseases. Remember, good oral hygiene begins at home with a simple routine of brushing and flossing, as well as eating a well-balanced diet.
We also feel that children start a lifetime of good oral practice with early, regular visits to the dentist. That is why our office recommends that children as young as two years old come in to see us. We gently check their little mouths and polish their teeth with a small amount of flavoured fluoride gel, so they get comfortable with simple procedures. Contact our office with any concerns you have for your or your family’s care.
For most people, how they look impacts greatly on how they feel about themselves. Today, in our ever-increasing “appearance conscious” society the benefits of improving your smile can be dramatic. To help you achieve a more dazzling smile that lasts for years our office utilizes Opalescence, a whitening procedure that starts in-office and continues at home. We can also council you on various cost-effective and convenient at home whitening kits. Other procedures to significantly improve your smile include veneers, contouring, crowns and bridges.
We offer a home-care system where bleach is injected into trays and worn for an hour a day. We have found over the years that this method is the best process to ensure maximum whitening with the least amount of sensitivity.
Your dental professional simply assists with showing you how to fill and insert the trays. We focus on a Positive Patient Experience. And you’ll see whiter teeth in less than a week!
Used to replace a single lost tooth or many missing teeth, implants are state of the art technology, utilizing man-made tooth roots to occupy the position your natural teeth once held. Titanium anchors are placed and bond with the bone to replace the root portion of your natural teeth and serve as anchors for crowns, bridges and dentures.
The pain and gum irritation often associated with dentures is eliminated, as is the embarrassment associated with loose or ill-fitting dentures. Designed to last a lifetime, dental implants can greatly improve your appearance and self-confidence. To see if implants are a suitable treatment for you contact our office for a comprehensive evaluation.
In addition to healthy teeth, it’s important to ensure your gums and the tissues that surround them are also healthy. If you encounter gum disease or other problems, you may need periodontal therapy.
We offer procedures that include both non-surgical treatments as well as periodontal surgery if needed to remove any diseased tissue and bring your gums and surrounding tissues back to a good state of health. Our in-house periodontist can and provide a complete assessment and treatment plan. This may include gum grafting for treating recession, bone grafting after tooth extraction and implant surgery to ultimately replace missing teeth.
See the “Implants” tab for more information.

Utilizing today’s modern dental therapies, approximately 95% of cases of teeth diagnosed with diseased or infected roots can be saved. Endodontics or root canal treatment involves the removal of a damaged nerve and replacing it with a permanent filling and seal. We believe in saving teeth instead of removing them and will make every effort to save yours.
Your Invisalign treatment will consist of a series of aligners that you switch out about every two weeks. Each aligner is individually manufactured with exact calculation to gradually shift your teeth into place. And since your Invisalign system is custom-made for your teeth and your teeth only, with a plan devised by you and your dentist or orthodontist, you know you’ll end up with a smile that truly fits. If you’re ready for a smile that transforms your appearance, Invisalign is your answer. Although there are many choices out there, no other works as effortlessly as the Invisalign system.
Part of our philosophy of caring for our patients is understanding that the unexpected happens. If an accident or dental emergency occurs it is reassuring to know we will do our best to arrange an appointment as soon as possible for you, usually the same day.
