Prevention and Early Detection
We prefer to help our patients avoid dental problems, which is why we emphasise prevention and education as the cornerstones of our practice. We work with our patients to understand their goals for their health and help them achieve healthy, beautiful smiles.
Preventive dentistry includes:
- Good home care habits
- Dental exams
- Fluoride treatments
- Sporting mouth guards
- Night guards
Even with the best preventive dentistry, sometimes conditions develop. With regular dental exams and x-rays, we can identify problems early when treatment is less complex and before a toothache causes a dental emergency.
We value trust and understand that everyone’s needs are different. We always explain treatment and respect that the decision is yours to make.
Teeth are strong but can still sustain damage from chewing, decay or accidents. If you have an adventurous spirit, your favourite sport or activity can lead to a broken tooth.
At Arthur Street Dental, we save your natural teeth whenever possible. This is often the healthiest and most economical option. Restorative dentistry makes teeth comfortable and functional and even improves the look of teeth.
Restorative options offered at our clinic include:
Fillings – seal a tooth after a cavity
Crowns – add stability to a broken tooth, a deeply decayed tooth or after root canal treatment
Bonding – fills in small chips, gaps or imperfections
Inlays and onlays – partially cover a damaged or decayed tooth
Veneers – restore length and reshapes the tooth
If you have damaged teeth that feel painful or you avoid chewing near a certain tooth, it's time for an evaluation.
Extractions and Tooth-Replacement
While we do our best to protect natural teeth, sometimes removing a tooth is the best approach. We never take this lightly and always provide plenty of options to complete your smile, such as:
- Dental implants
- Dental bridges
- Partial dentures
- Complete dentures
- Implant dentures
As part of the comprehensive care we offer, we will discuss the benefits and limitations of any tooth-replacement procedure along with potential costs and a timeline, so you have all the information necessary to make an informed choice.
