The goal is to restore the function and aesthetic quality and purpose of your mouth. Whether the problem is tooth decay, a broken tooth, a missing tooth or a dead tooth, we can address it using:
- Composite (white) fillings: plastic filling material used instead of metal fillings to restore a tooth that has been decayed, chipped or broken.
- Crowns and Bridges: porcelain caps that are cemented permanently to a tooth to improve aesthetics, add strength to teeth that have been heavily restored/ root canaled, and to permanently add a tooth where one was previously extracted.
- Dental Implants: titanium metal screw-like fixtures that are surgically implanted into the jawbone and used as replacement “roots” to support new porcelain crowns or dentures.
- Partial/Complete Dentures: Prosthetic devices used to replace multiple teeth or a complete arch of teeth. Usually fabricated using acrylic or a combination of metal and acrylic.
- Root Canal Therapy: the process of cleaning out and resealing the canals of tooth where the healthy nerve has died.
Having a dental issue is more common than many people think. For example, the Canadian Dental Association estimates that 70% of Canadians will develop some kind of gum disease. Gingivitis and the more serious periodontitis can progress painlessly until you have a serious issue.
Here’s how you can prepare for the dental work that will correct any problems.
Preparing for Restorative Services in Leamington
The goal is to make sure that your procedure goes smoothly. It’s important to ask any questions you have before your appointment date. Having everyone on the same page is critical for restorative services in Leamington.
- Dressing comfortably on the day that you have appointments is also a good idea. Familiar clothes lessen anxiety so you’ll feel more comfortable during any procedure. Short sleeves are preferable to access veins for an IV and check on your vitals.
- If you’ve had previous dental work done, you’ll want to bring a carrying case to store bridgework, retainers, dentures or partial plates. A proper storage case can make sure dental accessories are easy to locate after your procedure is finished.
Let us know about any medication that you are taking. Some antibiotics and anesthetics used could interact with the medicines you are currently using. Don’t forget to secure a ride if you’re going to be sedated. Even if you think you’re going to feel fine, it’s dangerous to operate a vehicle under the influence of any kind of sedatives.
