At Peterborough Dental Clinic, our goal is to provide treatment choices that meet individual needs, delivering a healthy smile to everyone. These treatments include your regular follow-up visits (see our oral hygiene corner), detecting cavities, and restoring natural teeth to the best of our ability.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canals are needed when a tooth’s nerve starts to decay because of infection or trauma. During the root canal procedure, the pulp inside the tooth, nerves, bacteria, and other decaying material are removed. The space is then filled with a special, medicated dental material. This will restore the tooth to full function.
A dental implant acts as a support for a single tooth, multiple teeth or full dentures. The support is a device often made from titanium. Dental implants are arguably one of the best methods for replacing missing teeth. In most cases, our dental office can offer dental implant options from start to finish.
Crowns are covers that help encase an entire tooth's surface, restoring it to its original shape and size. A crown will protect and strengthen a tooth’s structure when a filling or other restoration cannot. Many different crowns exist including:
Depending on your dental condition, our dentist will prescribe the crown that will work best.
A bridge or fixed prosthesis is used to replace missing teeth. It literally bridges the gap made by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is often supported by natural teeth or dental implants.
Dentures replace all or partial sections of missing teeth. Traditionally, dentures are removable appliances supported by natural teeth or the surrounding tissue. Today, dentures can be fully supported by dental implants in order to make them more stable. Call today to learn more about our implant-supported dentures.
Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Our dental clinic offers nitrous oxide sedation. Please inquire for further details.
Wisdom Teeth Extractions
Wisdom teeth can cause infection, periodontal issues and cavities. In most cases they are best to be removed earlier in age. Our office can provide wisdom teeth extraction with moderate sedation. Please speak to our dental team if wisdom teeth should be removed in your case.
