General Dentistry in Oshawa, ON
Dentistry is a very broad science that is divided into several branches. There’s general, pediatric, preventive dentistry, and more. At Conlin Dentistry in Oshawa, ON, we provide several dentistry services thanks to our diverse team of dentists and staff members.
General dentistry is arguably the largest branch of dentistry. It encompasses most of the services adults get at the dentist, as well as regular check-ups. Before anything is done, we’ll always explain your options, and the final decision is yours.
Cavity Fillings and Root Canal Treatments
Cavities are things we see almost daily here at Conlin Dentistry. The problem with cavities is that they start small and don’t produce any symptoms, so they keep growing silently. By the time they start becoming symptomatic, they will have already grown. We can fill these cavities with different types of materials, including composite resin, gold, porcelain, and more.
Root canal treatments involve dealing with conditions affecting the core of the tooth. This is the part containing the nerves and blood vessels. Root canal diseases are usually more serious than simple cavities, and treating them might take some more time.
Check-Ups and Restorative Procedures
Check-ups are fundamental in general dentistry. They let us detect small problems before they grow. This makes treating them easier, more convenient, and cheaper. Adults should visit their dentist twice a year or every six months for check-ups. Even if you’re feeling fine, you need to see your dentist.
Restorative procedures are done to replace missing teeth. People lose teeth due to systemic diseases, trauma, dental infections, and old age. Thanks to all the technology available to us, we can replace missing teeth while making sure you’re comfortable and are satisfied with the outcome.
Implants, bridges, and dentures can be done to replace missing teeth. Implants are now considered the best by most dentists because they’re durable, can last a lifetime, and very closely resemble the rest of a person’s teeth. Bridges are next in line, but they have to attach to adjacent teeth for support.
