Severe injury to a tooth can expose the nerves and blood vessels inside the tooth and put them at risk of infection. Root canal therapy is the removal of this soft tissue to prevent the tooth from becoming infected.</p> <h2 class="mt-3 mb-1">How does root canal treatment work?</h2> <p>To perform a root canal, we drill a small hole in the damaged tooth and remove the inner pulp. Then we clean the inside of the tooth and seal the hole. Finally, we restore the tooth with a dental crown.</p> <h2 class="mt-3 mb-1">Aren’t root canals painful?</h2> <p>Root canal treatment is performed until a local anesthetic so the procedure itself isn’t painful. After your treatment you may feel some pain and sensitivity in the treatment area similar to getting a filling.</p> <p>If you’ve injured a tooth, or if you’re experiencing severe toothaches, contact our office to book an examination.</p> <h2 class="mt-3 mb-2">Related Videos</h2> <div class="row"> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mb-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/decay/root_canal"></div></div> </div> </div> Thu, 18 Jun 2020 18:20:45 +0000 admin 34 at Sedation Dentistry in London <span>Sedation Dentistry in London</span> <span><span>admin</span></span> <span><time datetime="2018-12-11T11:25:42-06:00" title="Tuesday, December 11, 2018 - 11:25">Tue, 12/11/2018 - 11:25</time> </span> <div><img class="img-fluid w-50 float-right mt-1 ml-2 mb-2" alt="Woman under sedation" src="/files/images/services/sedation.jpg" /><p>Many people experience anxiety during a visit to the dentist. To help you stay calm and relaxed during your appointment, we provide sedation dentistry options.</p> <h2 class="mt-3 mb-1">Oral Sedation</h2> <p>Oral sedation produces a deep state of relaxation. You will be only slightly aware of your treatment during your appointment. Please note that oral sedatives will impair your ability to drive so you will need to arrange transportation home from our office.</p> <h2 class="mt-3 mb-1">Nitrous Oxide</h2> <p>Laughing gas, or nitrous oxide gas, is a traditional dental sedative. It produces a mild level of sedation and wears off very quickly after your appointment. Nitrous oxide doesn’t impair your ability to drive.</p> <p>Contact us today if you experience anxiety and would like to discuss sedative options.</p></div> Tue, 11 Dec 2018 17:25:42 +0000 admin 30 at Emergency Dentistry in London <span>Emergency Dentistry in London</span> <span><span>admin</span></span> <span><time datetime="2018-12-11T11:24:45-06:00" title="Tuesday, December 11, 2018 - 11:24">Tue, 12/11/2018 - 11:24</time> </span> <div><img class="img-fluid w-50 float-right mt-1 ml-2 mb-2" alt="Emergency sign" src="/files/images/services/emergency.jpg" /><p>We provide same-day emergency dental appointments.

Often there isn’t enough space in your jaw for the wisdom teeth to grow properly, so they can become misaligned or they can impact your other molars. We check the growth of the wisdom teeth during dental exams, and when we see that they are becoming misaligned we’ll recommend extraction.</p> <p>Wisdom teeth extraction is performed under a local anesthetic, and we usually recommend a sedative for the procedure. The teeth are surgically removed from your jaw through incisions in your gums. After the teeth are removed, we close the incisions with sutures.</p> <p>After your surgery you may feel some discomfort and swelling in the area. We’ll provide you with post-operative care instructions to help you manage your discomfort and ensure proper healing.</p> <p>To schedule a dental examination to assess the condition of your wisdom teeth, contact our office.</p> <h2 class="mt-3 mb-2">Related Videos</h2> <div class="row"> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mb-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/wisdom/about"></div></div> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mb-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/wisdom/extraction"></div></div> </div></div> Mon, 22 Oct 2018 15:57:55 +0000 admin 25 at Guards, Bite Appliances in London <span>Guards, Bite Appliances in London</span> <span><span>admin</span></span> <span><time datetime="2018-10-22T10:55:42-05:00" title="Monday, October 22, 2018 - 10:55">Mon, 10/22/2018 - 10:55</time> </span> <div><img class="img-fluid w-50 float-right mt-1 ml-2 mb-2" alt="Mouth guards" src="/files/images/services/guards.jpg" /><p>A Sports guard protects your teeth from injury caused by impacts to your mouth.

The disorder is caused by a number of factors that can cause pain in the temporomandibular joint between your lower jaw and your skull. TMJ symptoms can vary and can include headaches, trouble opening your mouth or swallowing, and a “popping” sensation when you chew food.</p> <p>To diagnose TMJ disorder we look at possible causes of the pain in the joint. This can include stress, your jaw structure and alignment, and if you grind your teeth. Treatment depends on the cause and may range from medication and orthodontal treatment to physiotherapy and stress reduction therapy.</p> <p>If you’re suffering from the symptoms of TMJ disorder, call our office to book an examination.</p></div> Mon, 22 Oct 2018 15:01:17 +0000 admin 23 at Dental Restoration in London <span>Dental Restoration in London</span> <span><span>admin</span></span> <span><time datetime="2018-10-19T14:59:38-05:00" title="Friday, October 19, 2018 - 14:59">Fri, 10/19/2018 - 14:59</time> </span> <div><img class="img-fluid w-50 float-right mt-1 ml-2 mb-2" alt="Dental x-ray" src="/files/images/services/restorations.jpg" /><p>We can restore teeth that have been damaged by decay or injury. Dental restorations repair the damage and restore the look and function of your teeth.</p> <h2 class="mt-3 mb-1">Fillings</h2> <p>Cavities result from tooth decay. They can be uncomfortable, and they can put the soft inner tissue of your teeth at risk of infection. We repair cavities with fillings. Depending on your specific situation we may recommend an amalgam or tooth-coloured filling.</p> <h2 class="mt-3 mb-1">Crowns</h2> <p>Sometimes decay or injury can damage a tooth beyond repair with a filling. When this happens, we restore the tooth with a crown. The crown fits over the entire tooth, and it is shaped and coloured to match your other teeth.</p> <h2 class="mt-3 mb-1">Inlays &amp; Onlays</h2> <p>When a molar is too damaged to be repaired with a filling, but it doesn’t require a crown, we may recommend an alternative treatment with an inlay or an onlay. These restorations repair the damaged area of the tooth and provide structural support. Inlays and onlays are produced in a dental laboratory and cemented in place in the tooth being treated.</p> <h2 class="mt-3 mb-1">Bridges</h2> <p>A bridge is used to restore a tooth that has been completely lost. Bridges can restore a single missing tooth, or they can be used to restore two or more adjacent teeth. Once the bridge is in place it restores the appearance of your smile.</p> <p>Do you have a damaged tooth?

Professional cleaning removes plaque and tartar that can’t be removed by brushing and flossing, and dental exams let your dentist detect and treat problems before they get worse. We recommend that you come for a preventative dentistry appointment every six months.</p> <h2 class="mt-3 mb-1">Oral Hygiene</h2> <p>A hygienist will deep clean your teeth to remove any built-up plaque that couldn’t be removed by brushing and flossing. They’ll also use a scaler to remove tartar from above your gum line and will finish by using a polisher to remove stains.</p> <h2 class="mt-3 mb-1">Dental Exam</h2> <p>A dental exam usually includes a thorough examination of your mouth, gums, and teeth. This lets us detect early signs of decay, infection, and other issues. We’ll also perform a screening for oral cancer. Oral cancer is a potentially lethal cancer that affects the throat and mouth. Early detection of pre-cancerous lesions raises the chance of successful treatment so it’s important to be screened at least once a year.</p> <p>When was your last cleaning?

We will refer you to one of the other practices we work with so you can be properly fitted.</p> <p>If you’ve got one or more missing teeth, dentures can restore your natural smile. Our dentures fit comfortably and securely so you can get on with your life.</p> <h2 class="mt-3 mb-1">Types of Dentures</h2> <p>Dentures come in two types. Full dentures are used when you are missing all or most of the teeth in a single arch. In cases where you have a few remaining natural teeth we may recommend that you have the teeth extracted and replaced by a full denture.</p> <p>Partial dentures are used when you are missing one or more teeth in an arch. They consist of the replacement teeth and the denture plate to support them.</p> <p>Both types of dentures are designed to match the shape of your mouth to give you a natural-looking smile. Depending on the type of denture you have several attachment options to keep the denture secure. We can help you choose the right denture for you.</p> <p>To learn more about dentures, or to schedule an appointment, contact our office today.</p> <h2 class="mt-3 mb-2">Related Videos</h2> <div class="row"> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mb-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/missing_teeth/full_denture"></div></div> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mb-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/missing_teeth/partial_denture"></div></div> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mb-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/implants/denture"></div></div> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mb-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/missing_teeth/not_replaced"></div></div> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mb-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/missing_teeth/replacing_teeth"></div></div> </div> </div> Fri, 19 Oct 2018 19:55:32 +0000 admin 16 at
