Your teeth and smile are the first things that a stranger might notice when first meeting you and that’s why you need to take care of your dental health and appearance. Blue Sky Dental Clinic servicing Burnaby and more provides various dental treatments to ensure your teeth and gums are healthy.
What services can you receive from a general dentist?
You can undergo various dental treatments at dental clinic, including wisdom teeth removal/extraction, Invisalign clear braces, root canal treatments, and professional teeth cleaning procedures.
Wisdom teeth removal/extraction/surgery
While your wisdom teeth can grow without trouble, sometimes they might not grow like they should, requiring surgery. The best time to remove wisdom teeth is when the root is two-thirds of its total size.
You can have the wisdom teeth extraction procedure due to the following reasons:
- Gum disease
- Teeth overcrowding
Our team will examine your mouth during the treatment and administer a numbing agent to minimize your discomfort. They will then make an incision in your gum tissue to access the tooth. Next, they will remove any blocking tissues, including bones, and remove the tooth. Your dentist can also divide the tooth into smaller pieces for easier removal.
Invisalign clear braces
If you have crooked or misaligned teeth, the dentist can use Invisalign clear braces to shape and straighten your smile. Although Invisalign uses the same principles of applying firm pressure on your teeth, it offers a removable option, unlike traditional braces. You must wear the clear aligners for around 22 hours daily and remove them when eating or playing sports.
During your appointment, your dentist will make an impression on your teeth using state-of-the-art machines. They will send the scans to their technician for custom-made Invisalign clear aligners. Your specialist will recommend visiting their office after every one or two weeks to receive a new pair of Invisalign trays.
Root canal surgery and treatment
Severe dental decay or infection can call for root canal treatment. Our dental clinic offers expert root canal surgery to reduce the need for tooth extraction. Since severe tooth infections affect your tooth’s nerves and blood vessels, your dentist will recommend root canal surgery to clean out the affected tissues and provide a filling.
The procedure involves three significant steps. The first step involves the initial cleaning of your infected tooth, while the second involves thoroughly cleaning the tooth and rinsing it with an antibacterial mouthwash. Once it’s dry, your dentist will use gutta percha on the chamber to protect your teeth further from decay.
What are the benefits of root canal treatment?
You can benefit from root canal surgery in the following ways:
- Prevents teeth loss
- Preserves jawbone and gum tissues
- Prevents spread of infection to neighboring teeth
Whether you have a problem with your teeth or are looking for preventive dental tips, your dentist will provide sufficient tips to improve your dental health.
Common services under general dentistry include:
- Restorative dentistry
- Cosmetic dentistry
- Preventive dental education
Restorative dentistry involves procedures that restore your teeth’s function, while cosmetic dentistry procedures can improve your smile’s aesthetics. Dental preventive education includes strategies to prevent or minimize your risk of tooth infection and loss.
Cleanings and preventions and other services
Although you might brush and floss your teeth daily, sometimes you need a professional to remove any plaque buildup. Your Burnaby dentist might use techniques like scaling or planing to remove plaque or tartar buildup in hard-to-reach areas.
Your dentist can give you prevention tips to improve your oral health, including brushing and flossing daily, using an antibacterial mouthwash, and avoiding sugary foods to prevent cavities.
