Preventative and Periodontal Dentistry
Our dental hygienists provide preventive cleanings and care so that you can maintain and improve your oral health. Whether it means scheduling a scaling every six months or every three, we’ll carefully assess your teeth and give you the information you need to take the best possible care of them.
As we utilize digital X-rays, we can also screen for signs of tooth decay, bone loss, disease, and orthodontic concerns. Plus, depending on your unique concerns, your preventive care appointment might also include:
VELScope Oral Cancer Exams — All new patients receive one of these advanced oral cancer screenings to help us assess for areas of pathological tissues inside of the mouth. From there, we recommend a new VELScope exam every two years. This highly effective diagnostic tool can help us to detect precancerous and cancerous tissues before they’re visible to the naked eye.
Dental Sealants — Thin protective coatings over the deep grooves of your back teeth let you seal out cavity-causing bacteria, making it easier to stay cavity free.
Dental Care for Kids — Patients of all ages are welcome in our office! We have dentists on staff who love seeing kids, and helping your child enjoy a positive experience when it comes to their oral health.
Fluoride Treatments — Fluoride makes teeth stronger and more resistant to decay, but it’s also useful for combatting sensitivity!
Athletic Guards — Protect you or your child’s smile during athletic activities, to avoid unwanted dental emergencies.
Bite Splints and Occlusal Nightguards — Are frequent headaches or jaw pain part of your everyday life? You may have TMJ disorder or suffer from chronic bruxism (teeth grinding). A custom splint or mouthguard can help you take the stress off of your teeth and jaw muscles when you sleep.
Laser Gum and Dental Treatments — Thanks to our soft tissue laser, we can address issues like tongue ties, frenectomies, and even gum surgery in a less invasive manner.
Panthera Snoring Devices — Is your husband or wife complaining of your chronic snoring habits? A custom oral appliance might be all you need to enjoy a better night’s rest.
Gum Surgery With Us
At Uptown Guelph Dental, we staff a general dentist with expertise in periodontics, so we’re able to provide an extensive menu of gum surgeries and treatments without having to refer you to a surgical center. Common procedures we perform include periodontal flap surgeries and soft tissue grafting.
We’ll do whatever it takes to help you get your smile healthy and disease free.
Individually Based Program
Are you combatting gum disease? You may need more or less frequent visits than other people do. That’s why we tailor your perio visits to 3, 4, or even 5 month intervals as necessary. Your care is always based on your individual situation, and we’ll do our very best to work around any financial barriers. All of our recommendations are based on the quality of care that you deserve.
