Oral Exams & New Patient Exams
Our qualified team takes great pride in providing our patients with consistent, comprehensive, and personalized dental care. Our goal is make sure you feel welcome, relaxed, and confident about your dental health future every time you visit our office, whether it is your first appointment or you’ve been with us for years.
Dental Hygiene Appointments
Regular dental hygiene appointments help keep your mouth and teeth clean to prevent long-term dental problems, including cavities, gingivitis, and bad breath. We typically recommend that dental hygiene appointments be scheduled with our talented dental hygienists every six months, but we may recommend a different schedule based on your specific oral needs.
Oral Cancer Screening
During every oral exam, we perform a quick and painless screening for signs of oral cancer. This non-invasive procedure involves scanning the inside of the mouth for abnormalities or sores, as well as a gentle examination of the cheeks and neck for lumps. Early detection is essential for the successful treatment of oral cancers, and we are here as your first line of defence.
A dental sealant is a very thin layer of plastic painted over the tops of the molars to prevent plaque build-up between the grooves of the teeth. Dental sealants prevent tooth decay caused by food bacteria that collects on molars and premolars. We can apply sealants to molars on children as young as five (once the adult molars have surfaced). The sealants will last several years and should be replaced as they wear out.
At Turtle Creek Dental, we use a digital x-ray system that generates 90% less radiation than traditional film x-rays. Digital x-rays allow us to produce accurate images on-screen within seconds, helping us show you exactly what we see in your teeth and virtually eliminating the need to take multiple images in a visit. We also keep your images on file for reference during future visits.
A root canal treatment is a common procedure used to treat teeth with infected roots. The process allows you to keep your natural tooth rather than extracting it and replacing it with an implant or bridge. At Turtle Creek Dental in Mississauga, our team is experienced in performing root canal procedures, so you can feel confident when booking your appointment with us.
When all other options have been explored, removing a tooth entirely may be the best way forward. Most tooth extractions are a routine procedure that we can easily perform in our Mississauga dental office. The level of difficulty for the process depends on the location in the mouth of the tooth that needs to be pulled and a few other factors. We’ll examine your teeth and create a custom treatment plan to ensure your tooth extraction is successful.
