Our focus is on preventing dental disease, protecting and preserving your teeth and gums and allowing you to attain an optimal level of oral health by providing excellent general dental services. These include:
Tooth removal or extraction is always the very last resort, and we will only suggest this option after all other avenues have been exhausted. If you do need a tooth extracted, we will make sure the entire process is as smooth and as comfortable as possible. Our dental team will also talk to you about the best way to replace missing teeth as there are several solutions available.
Your regular dental examinations are crucial for preventing dental disease and most people need to see us twice a year. During your checkups, we will closely monitor your oral health and can more easily detect the very first signs of any problems. Early detection is critical because we can treat any dental issues more effectively.
Having your teeth cleaned professionally helps to protect your teeth and gums, and it’s excellent for refreshing your smile. Usually, six monthly cleans are recommended, but if you have existing dental problems like gum disease, we may suggest more frequent appointments. Additionally, our dental team can work with you to ensure you are using the most effective brushing and flossing techniques.
Lethbridge Dental Clinic uses the highest quality materials to restore teeth. Small to medium-sized cavities can be repaired with the very latest tooth- coloured composite fillings. Larger cavities may require a porcelain filling. The condition of existing fillings is assessed during your regular dental checkups as they do need replacing periodically.
We continually monitor the position of wisdom teeth yet to erupt. Our dentist will only recommend their removal if they cannot push through without creating problems. If you do need a wisdom tooth removed, we will ensure you feel as relaxed and as comfortable during the procedure.
Digital dental x-rays are an invaluable diagnostic tool, allowing us safely to visualise areas invisible to the naked eye including the contact areas in between your teeth, your tooth roots, and the position of teeth yet to erupt.
