Preventive Dentistry

‘Preventive Dentistry’ refers to protecting your teeth, and to preventing cavities and other problems before they have a chance to start. This includes our regular dental hygiene visits, sealants, mouthguards, splints, mi paste, and patient/ parent education.

Hygiene Consultation

If you haven't had your teeth cleaned in a while, the team at Parkland Dental Associates will not lecture you for falling behind. They'll do a thorough analysis of your oral health and make recommendations for treatment if necessary. Of course, you make the final decision; our dental team will not pressure you. Remember that they're always open to your questions and concerns.

Sealants

We place a high emphasis on sealants, which are effective in preventing tooth decay on the biting surfaces of chewing teeth. This plastic coating, which is clear or tooth-coloured, is applied to deep pits and grooves. This seals them in areas where decay is most likely to begin. At less than half the cost of conventional fillings, without anaesthetics or drilling, sealants are one of the most important preventive services we have.

Mouth Guards and Splints

Do you often wake up in the morning with a sore jaw or a headache? You may be grinding your teeth at night. Splints help cushion your teeth, protecting them from wearing down or chipping, and also aid in preventing headaches.

MI Paste

Numerous activities or conditions can harm your teeth or contribute to an acid imbalance in your mouth. This can make it difficult for your saliva to restore minerals. MI paste helps strengthen, protect, and rebuild your tooth surfaces by remineralizing your teeth, buffering acid, and reducing plaque’s effect.

Patient/ Parent Education

“The great aim of education is not knowledge but action”
—Herbert Spencer (1820-1903)

We firmly believe that the first, best defence for your teeth, and for your children’s teeth, is you. We have an FAQ section, with questions our patients often ask us. If you do not see an answer to your question there, you are welcome to email us, and we will do our best to help you. Our dental team is, of course, happy to answer any questions you have during your appointment. In addition, we have a community education service, whereby some of our staff members are invited to schools, and give a presentation to the students on oral health or other aspects of dentistry. Our goal is to give you the tools you need to actively protect your family's oral health.

Emergency Dental Care

We recognize that dental emergency situations do arise, and at Parkland Dental Associates, we will do our best to respond to your problem promptly. Whether it is something as simple as a broken filling or as complicated as a knocked-out tooth, we can provide you with assistance. If the problem arises after hours, an emergency number is available by calling the office.

Extractions

If a tooth needs to be removed, our team is committed to making the process as comfortable as possible.
