Your gums have likely started to slightly recede, which frequently causes sensitive teeth. Due to the recession of the gum line, the underlying dentin can now be seen, making it easier for food and water to reach the sensitive nerve. There are a variety of toothpastes, gels, and even some dental treatments that can be used to control this. If you have highly sensitive teeth, please talk to us in greater detail.
The best dental and gum care begins at home. The greatest way to continuously take care of your teeth and gums is to brush and floss every day. You can significantly reduce your risk of developing gingivitis or tooth decay as you age by sticking to a daily schedule.
When bacteria surrounds the teeth and enters the gums, it results in the condition known as gingivitis. The gums may itch, swell, and frequently bleed. It is strongly advised to attend the hygiene clinic on a frequent basis to prevent the condition from getting worse. In order to ensure a healthy mouth, our hygiene team will instruct you on proper flossing methods throughout your appointment.

The early stages of periodontal disease show little to no symptoms. It is brought on by bacteria that enters the gums and surrounds the teeth. 'Gingivitis' is the term used to describe the current situation. The gums swell, inflame, and frequently bleed. If the problem is not appropriately addressed, it gets worse. Now there are noticeable symptoms. They consist of:

  • Bad Breath
  • Gum Recession
  • Gum Sensitivity to Acidic Foods
  • Abscesses
  • Tooth Pain
  • Tooth Loss
A chronic problem that requires rapid attention is periodontal disease. This condition can be managed with a series of periodontal cleanings, root planing and scaling, laser therapy, and local antibiotics. Surgery for periodontitis is only required in extreme situations.

Amalgam, also referred to as silver fillings, has been used for many years. It was the best filling restoration since it was made of an alloy of metals. When heat or cold is applied to the metal, it expands and shrinks. Once a tooth was filled, this made it such that minimal bacteria could enter, maintaining the tooth's strength and health.

Composites, sometimes known as white fillings, are frequently comprised of plastic or glass polymers. With the help of these aesthetic fillings, we are able to fill a cavity with a material that resembles your natural tooth structure in both appearance and feel. In order to stop decay, this repair is made of resin and is snugly fitted into the tooth. The composite color will resemble the color of your teeth rather than being gray or silver in your mouth.

In the modern dental world, there are several techniques to improve your smile. Several techniques consist of:

  • Tooth Whitening
  • Bonding
  • Porcelain Veneers
  • Porcelain Crowns

We are capable of applying any or part of these techniques to enhance your smile. Please get in touch with our office to schedule a precise consultation so we can create a treatment strategy just for you.


A cost-effective and secure method for achieving a gorgeous, healthy smile is tooth whitening. Fluoride has been added to the bleaching agent throughout time. This lessens the possibility of sensitive teeth and gums.

After a thorough examination and hygiene cleaning, your dentist must supervise any tooth whitening.

If properly cared for, the whitening procedure might endure for a number of years. Wine, cola, tea, coffee, and other beverages will lessen the aftereffect. Recall that anything that may stain a white shirt will also stain your smile.

Bonding is a low-cost process used to close gaps between the front teeth and to alter the shade of a tooth. Amazing benefits can be seen right away. You'll have a gorgeous grin in a few hours! Similar to tooth whitening, bonding can become discolored over time from coffee, tea, cola, and wine.
Thin porcelain pieces called porcelain veneers are placed right over your natural teeth. The complete process may just require two visits. Veneers alter a patient's teeth's size, shape, and color. This surgery is intended to fix teeth that are broken, have become discolored due to medicine or aging, or have a crooked smile. Patients frequently choose porcelain veneers so they can have a straighter, whiter smile and feel and look younger.
Crowns are a comprehensive aesthetic operation that lasts a lifetime. In as little as two visits, it will alter the teeth's size, shape, and color.
A dental implant is an artificial (or "man-made") tooth or tooth root replacement. This titanium screw-like device is placed into the upper or lower jaw bone through the gum tissue. This technique often causes only minor discomfort. The Dental Implant and the bone eventually fuse together after a few months. This makes it possible to attach the new tooth to the dental implant with an anchor.
  • Dental implants mimic your natural tooth's appearance and functionality.
  • Dental implants are a long-term remedy for tooth loss.
  • Regular hygiene appointments at your dentist's office are required to preserve dental implants.
  • The likelihood of bone loss, periodontal disease, tooth mobility, and more tooth loss is reduced by dental implants.
  • A removable full or partial denture is no longer necessary thanks to dental implants.
  • Dental implants are exclusively concerned with the lost tooth or teeth. In a conventional bridge, one or more neighbouring teeth would need to be extracted in order to make room for a false tooth.
The majority of people are eligible for dental implants because of significant developments in dentistry and dental implants. Due to chronic illnesses, cardiac conditions, and severe osteoporosis, there can be exceptions.

The typical dental implant procedure requires three to four sessions. X-rays are taken of the area at the initial visit, and impressions are also made for a surgical guide and a temporary prosthesis to cover the Implant.

The Implant is put in at the following visit. The region is treated with a local anesthetic. (Any extra sedation is no longer necessary unless deemed by the dentist). The implant will then be inserted following a little incision made by the dentist. The jaw bone receives the implant. Sutures will subsequently be used to close up the wound. The pain during the surgery is typically not severe.

Your next visit will be in around three months, when work will start on the porcelain crown that will cover the implant.

Dental implant costs differ from one dentist to the next. Always make an appointment for an implant consultation to go over the process and its associated costs.


A dental implant can last between 30 years and a lifetime with regular oral hygiene appointments and the right at-home maintenance.
