Trying to find a dentist office that accommodates the whole family can be a bit of a challenge. Children, teens, adults, and seniors all have their own specific dental needs. It becomes a hassle having to travel from one office to another just to meet the dental health needs of every family member. That’s why Bridle Post Dental offers a variety of general dentistry services. From teeth cleanings, exams and fillings to root canals and extractions, we provide the family dental Markham residents can depend on. Our family dental services include, but are not limited to:
Preventative dentistry involves educating patients to take care of their teeth at home to help prevent major dental issues in the future. Regular brushing, daily flossing and annual dental cleanings and exams are major aspects of preventative dental care. Following the preventative treatments outlined by your dentist will greatly reduce your risk of getting cavities, gingivitis, periodontitis and a wide range of other dental problems. This will also reduce the risk of secondary problems caused by poor oral health.
Dental extractions can be an important part of maintaining proper oral hygiene. While tooth extractions are not always required, they can be necessary in some cases, including remedying severe decay, tooth pain, advanced periodontal disease, malpositioned tooth, fractured tooth, infections and more. Our dental team will ensure that you fully understand the after-care procedures necessary to protect your mouth after an extraction.
Root Canal Treatments
If you are experiencing pain in your teeth, you may need root canal therapy. Inside your teeth, under the enamel and hard layers, is a soft tissue called the pulp. This pulp contains blood vessels and connective tissue, helping to grow the root of your tooth during development. This tissue can become inflamed or infected by decay, injury or other trauma, and if left untreated can cause pain or lead to an abscess. Root canal therapy removes the inflamed or infected tissue from inside your tooth, followed by a careful cleaning and disinfecting before the tooth is filled and sealed with a rubber-like material.
X-rays are an important tool for a dentist as they allow us to see a detailed image of a patient's teeth and diagnose any potential problems, such as cavities or inflammations. New technology allows us to take digital images, eliminating the waiting period for results as we no longer have to develop the X-ray film. These digital imaging tools also expose patients to a much lower dose of radiation than the film-based X-ray machines. Our dental team will share these images with you instantly, explaining any areas of concern and providing you with all available treatment options.
