Restoring the structure of your tooth to prevent future cavities and decay can be accomplished at Winona Dental. Tooth decay is best treated during the early stages to ensure the infection does not spread to the nerve of the tooth. Patients with severe decay may feel tooth pain. For local Stoney Creek and Hamilton patients feeling tooth pain, Winona Dental provides emergency dental appointments.
Restorative dental treatments include direct and indirect tooth restoration to help mend tooth damage from decay. Specific restorative dental procedures include inlays, crowns, bridges, veneers and root canals.
With an emphasis on patient health, aesthetics and preventive care; Winona Dental uses ‘white’ composite tooth fillings to blend the tooth restoration with the natural colour of your tooth. Composite tooth fillings are also found to be safer for patients as they do not contain the mercury found in metal fillings.
Winona Dental provides Hamilton and Stoney Creek with endodontic dental treatments.
Endodontic dental procedures or root canal therapy is required when tooth decay has spread and infected the tooth’s nerve.
Local patients with advanced tooth decay may experience tooth aches. Winona Dental provides emergency dental appointments to locals in Hamilton, Burlington, Oakville and Ancaster areas.
During a root canal, the infected parts of the tooth’s pulp are removed and cleaned. Obturation of the canal then proceeds to save the tooth structure.
Periodontic dentistry deals with the health of your gums. Proper oral care habits to prevent gum recession are very important and can have many dental health benefits. Patients that experience bleeding gums are showing signs of gingivitis. It is very important to floss at least once a day as apart of your dental hygiene regimen. Flossing cleans plaque bacteria from the gumline region where regular brushing cannot reach.
Allowing plaque bacteria to build can cause gingivitis and periodontitis which may lead to decreased bone levels which help to anchor your teeth.
Periodontic care procedures can help prevent gum and bone recession and the formation of periodontal pockets which can have adverse side-effects on the rest of your body.
Dental radiographs or dental x-rays enable the dentist to diagnosis decay in areas underneath the gum tissue and treat any decay issues before infections become significant.
Winona Dental utilizes digital x-ray technology and equipment which drastically decreases radiation exposure for patients by as much as 70% over older x-ray technology. With digital x-ray technology, the radiation dosages that patients can receive is comparable to a few days of natural outdoor exposure to the sun.
