Checkups and Exams
Checkups and Exams

Dental Hygiene and Exams
More than likely, your last visit to our practice was for a routine checkup. Why are routine dental examinations so important? Because preventive care enables us to identify and treat tooth decay, gum disease and soft tissue disease in its earliest stages, which is better for you, in terms of treatment options and saving you money!

If it’s been awhile since your last check up, please give us a call to schedule your routine cleaning and exam and to stay on top of any tooth decay.

Routine Dental Maintenance Prevents Costly Future Treatments!
Here’s an example that compares routine car maintenance to routine dental care and why it’s so important!

Your automobile manufacturer recommends that you have your engine oil changed every 10,000 kilometres. Let’s say you wait until it’s now 20,000 kilometres between oil changes. What might the consequences be?

Well… you’ll put additional wear and tear on your car for sure. Your oil will get dirtier and dirti

Children's Dentistry
Children's Dentistry

At Doreen Dental Clinic, we provide expectant mothers with the information that they need to promote healthy teeth for their growing child. By your child’s first birthday, it’s time for their first dental check-up as well.

Promoting Early Oral Health
From preventative cleanings to protective dental sealants, our goal is to help your child avoid everyday tooth decay and have a strong smile that will last years into adulthood.

As your child becomes familiar with the dental office environment, we provide them with the information and preventive care that they need to avoid everyday problems like cavities, toothaches and bad breath.

We help your child make smart choices about nutrition, home hygiene and habits that affect the development of their teeth.

Gentle Dental Care
Should your child require restorative care, we can help by providing the care that they need with the comfort that they deserve. By scheduling routine dental evaluations, our dentists are able to pinpoint pr

Protective Sealants
Protective Sealants

What are Protective Sealants?
Wouldn’t it be great if you or your child could avoid the pain and discomfort of tooth decay by some miracle of modern dentistry? Well…that miracle already exists, and it’s available at Doreen Dental Clinic where we can save you and your child from needless pain and financial hardship!

Dental Sealants Protect Precious Teeth
Your back teeth (molars) contain ridges and indentations that your toothbrush may not reach. As a result, these are prime “hot spots” for tooth decay. Dental sealants help to protect these teeth from decay – especially important when your child gets those all-important first permanent molars.

Having sealants applied to teeth before they decay saves needless time, pain and money because they help you to avoid the procedures needed to fix decayed teeth!

How Do Sealants Work?
A sealant is made up of a clear, film-like material that the doctor applies to the surface of back teeth. This material quickly bonds to the grooves and r

Fluoride Treatments
Fluoride Treatments

All teeth need fluoride to minimise harmful acid attacks that occur when bacteria mix with sugar in the mouth and eat away at tooth enamel, causing tooth decay.

Most people get adequate amounts of fluoride through their drinking water and the foods they eat, but that’s not always the case. If you drink mostly bottled water or you use a home water filtration system, you may not be getting the amount of fluoride you need.

At one time, it was believed that only children needed fluoride treatments, but today, more adults are getting them as well, particularly if they run a higher risk of tooth decay due to:

Poor oral hygiene
Alcohol/drug abuse or an eating disorder
Inadequate professional dental care
Poor diet/nutrition
Dry mouth (saliva helps to wash bacteria off teeth)
Overgrowth of oral bacteria.
Fluoride is available in several forms, including:
over-the-counter and prescription toothpastes and mouth washes/rinses.
professional gel, foam and varnish treatments, availab

Custom Mouthguards
Custom Mouthguards

Keeping Your Teeth Safe
Shin guards? Check. Shoulder pads? Check. Helmet? Check. Cleats? Check. Mouth guard? Just a second – it must be around here somewhere!

Not only should anyone engaged in one of these sports wear a mouth guard, for many of them, it’s a requirement! Believe it or not, sports-related injuries are three times more likely to cause facial/dental injuries than acts of violence or even car accidents!

Young children, in particular, frequently suffer damaged or displaced teeth, fractured jaws, and lip lacerations from braces and other teeth when participating in sports.

Mouth guards also protect against concussions and neck injuries because they serve as “shock absorbers.” The impact of any blow to the face or mouth is evenly distributed over all the teeth and there is less of a chance that the upper and lower jaws will come into contact with one another.

What Type of Mouth Guard Works Best?
There are a number of different types of mouth guards available:

Fillings
Fillings

Fillings are restorations that repair and rebuild teeth that have been harmed by cavities. After removing the damaged portion of the tooth, the filling seals out bacteria and protects the tooth so that it can function normally.

Choices in Restorative Materials
Materials used for fillings may include composite (white fillings) or amalgam (silver fillings.) White fillings are more aesthetically pleasing and generally less invasive. Silver fillings are useful for large cavities where cost is a concern.

During your examination, we will discuss your options with you so that you can make an educated decision about your filling material.

The earlier your dentist repairs your cavities, the smaller and more affordable your filling will be. Contact us today!

Root Canal Treatment
Root Canal Treatment

Use the term, “root canal,” and many people start shaking. “Oh no, anything but that!” So… when was the last time you had a root canal? Times have changed and so have root canal procedures. We offer WaveOne® technology which makes root canals quick and painless.

What is a Root Canal?
In very simple terms, a root canal removes infected tissue from the roots of the tooth beneath the gums. This is done to:

Save the part of the tooth above the gums
Minimise the risk of further damage
Prevent loss of the tooth entirely, requiring more extensive and expensive treatment.
What’s the Procedure?
It begins with the administration of a local anesthetic – we also offer happy gas sedation. Next, the dentist removes the damaged or infected nerve tissue and fills the infected root with an antibiotic to treat any remaining infection. The tooth root is then packed with filling material. Finally, the tooth is capped with a crown to protect it.

The entire process typically takes place over t

Crowns, Bridges and Veneers
Crowns, Bridges and Veneers

There are many options for restoring and enhancing the appearance of your teeth. Doreen Dental Clinic has all the options you need to enjoy better oral health.

Crowns
A crown is a full coverage restoration that is used on badly damaged teeth, teeth that have had a root canal or on top of a dental implant.

Crowns are made of a porcelain material allowing it to blend best with other teeth. A crown can make your teeth stronger and improve your appearance.

Most crowns last for several years with proper oral hygiene and preventive dental care.

Bridges
A dental bridge is made up of two crowns bonded to an artificial tooth in the middle. These three or four “teeth” form the “bridge” that is bonded into place to solve your missing tooth dilemma. It is made of tooth-coloured materials to match your other teeth.

Bridges can also be placed on top of dental implants to replace up to 4 or 5 teeth at one time..

Veneers
Dental veneers are very thin shells of porcelain or resin ma

Inlays and Onlays
Inlays and Onlays

Inlays and onlays are used to repair decay and fractures on teeth that are too broken down for a filling, but don’t need the full coverage of a crown.

Minimally Invasive Tooth Restoration
Inlays and Onlays are made from tooth-coloured porcelain, composite resin or gold. Inlays are custom-fitted to repair decay or damage in the ridges of the teeth.

Onlays, also custom-fitted, are used to repair decay and damage that occurs on more than one cusp (point) of the tooth.

Similar to a crown, inlays and onlays are custom made in a dental lab and usually require two appointments to complete.

Dentures
Dentures

Dentures are one of the most straightforward ways to replace your missing teeth. Full and partial dentures are custom-made removable prosthetics that can replace all or several teeth at one time.

Today’s dentures are both comfortable and aesthetically enhancing.

Depending on the type of denture therapy needed, your treatment may also require teeth extractions or surgery. We can provide you with a customised care plan that outlines each step of the process.

Stability That You Deserve
Like teeth, dentures should be brushed daily to remove plaque and bacteria. Removing them each night will ensure better oral health and stronger bone support. A properly fitted denture should stay in place using nothing other than a natural seal with your gums.

Implant-supported dentures can also offer a permanent alternative to conventional dentures.

Visit us regularly to ensure a better fitting dentures and great oral health. Contact us today to find out if dentures are an option for you!

Dental Implants
Dental Implants

Have you ever wondered what your smile might look like if that missing tooth wasn’t missing?

Dental implants are an effective way to permanently replace missing teeth with one that looks just as natural. They are used as an alternative to dentures and bridges because they are non-invasive to your existing teeth.

Benefits of dental implants include:

Improved bone development
The security to support crowns, bridges or dentures
An extremely high success rate
Results that can last an entire lifetime
Dental implants are artificial titanium tooth roots that support the false teeth, such as a crown or bridge. Each implant is placed into the bone where it functions similarly to a natural tooth root. Once healing and new development have occurred, the fixed tooth can be attached.

Our dentists will co-ordinate your treatment plan with an oral surgeon for placing the implants, and then take care of crafting and fixing crowns once the implants have healed.

Dental implants are an

Extractions
Extractions

While our teeth were meant to last forever, sometimes when there’s severe damage pulling (or extracting) a tooth is necessary. The most common reasons you might need an extraction are:

Trauma to the tooth
Tooth decay
Extra teeth
Infection
Wisdom teeth
Periodontal disease
The Process of Extracting a Tooth
Exam: A detailed exam or X-rays will be done to ensure an extraction is necessary and cannot be fixed with a crown, filling, or other treatment.

Anesthesia: The proper anesthetic will be given for a more relaxing procedure:

Local anesthesia. Usually a local anesthetic is given to you in the area of your extracted tooth. If this is the case, the area will be numb to pain but you’ll still be able to feel pressure and noises from the procedure.
General anesthesia. General anesthetics are used for more complex cases in which gums may need to be cut away or more than one tooth is extracted. This means you’re ‘put under’ for the procedure, usually through a gas or injected a
