At Smiling Dental, your general dental health is our priority.
Take care of your oral health with a regular six-month dental checkup and clean. Maintaining regular general dentistry checkup appointments allows dentists to discover and prevent major dental problems before they progress further.
Having your teeth cleaned professionally also allows the removal of plaque and tartar that a toothbrush and floss are unable to get to. This prevents tooth decay and gum disease to ensure the best oral hygiene.
Our general dentistry services include
Wisdom teeth removal
Most people have their wisdom teeth removed for different reasons.
Wisdom teeth generally will grow out in your late teens and early 20s. When wisdom teeth come in, many problems can occur including:
- Your jaw is not large enough for them. They then become impacted or partially buried underneath the gums
- Your wisdom teeth cause your gums to become infected, red, swollen, and painful.
- Serious problems can develop from impacted teeth such as damage to other teeth, gum disease and tooth decay
Smiling Dental can help you feel back to normal if you’re suffering from wisdom tooth pain.Our Locations Book Now
Root canal therapy
Root canal therapy at Smiling Dental is the process of removing the infected nerve in a tooth. Left untreated, the tooth continues to become infected until abscess forms which may lead to severe pain and swelling which may require tooth removal.
The symptoms in an infected tooth are often: severe or throbbing pain, swelling on your gums or lingering sensitivity to hot/cold drinks or food.
The primary reasons we perform root canal treatment are to save the tooth from being extracted and to eliminate the severe symptoms from the infected tooth.Our Locations Book Now
