Preventive and Family Dentistry Services:
During your dental hygiene visit, the dental hygienist will review your chart and medical status, examine your head, neck, gums, teeth and mouth for abnormalities; measure the attachment of the gums to your teeth, record all findings on your chart,take prescribed x-rays when required, scale your teeth to remove plaque and tartar, polish your teeth to remove stains and apply fluoride to strengthen your teeth.
At Northtown Dental, our dental hygienists provide education during all phases of treatment. They will customize an oral care program for you to address all matters related to your oral health including nutrition, smoking cessation, oral cancer screening and plaque control and the use of various oral care products, their purpose and effective use.
From a broken tooth to an unexplained pain, a dental emergency can happen anywhere, at anytime. Like any emergency, it is important to stay calm and assess the situation. You should call us right away for immediate care and attention; we will do our best to see you right away.
Teeth are “tough” on the outside, but inside they have a soft core made up of nerve tissue and blood vessels. Serious infection of the nerve tissue caused by tooth decay or trauma to the tooth, are the most common causes of a tooth needing root canal treatment. A root canal simply involves the removal of the injured nerve tissue from the centre of the tooth to allow it to remain pain free in your mouth.
Root canal treatment saves a tooth that would otherwise be lost. After root canal treatment, a filling and crown is placed over the tooth to restore it to its natural shape and appearance, protecting it from fracture.
ViziLite® Plus with TBlue® is the leading oral cancer screening system that helps Dr. Catherine Tallerico identify, evaluate, monitor and mark abnormal oral lesions suspicious for pathology including precancerous cells and cancer that may be difficult to see during a regular visual exam.
Vizilite is a quick and easy -to-use system that incorporates seamlessly into your existing hygiene visit as an oral cancer screening examination. Ask us for more details.
