General Dentistry

At Avid Dental, we strive to provide comprehensive treatment that would be ideal for our patients at any age and as their oral health changes over the course of a lifetime. We never just offer options, but also include valuable information to empower patients to make dental health decisions that give them confidence.

General dentistry is the foundation of our dental practice and is designed to help patients stay healthy and comfortable with conservative treatment options delivered by experienced and gentle dentists.

Keep Smiles Healthy with Preventive Dentistry

Our recommendation for check-ups and cleans every six months affords us the opportunity to detect and treat oral health conditions early, when they are typically less costly and complicated. Since dental disease rarely presents symptoms until well advanced, these routine visits are the only way to detect problems before they become emergencies.

  • Dental exams
  • Cleans
  • Scale and polish
  • Periodontal treatment
  • Fluoride application
  • Fissure sealants
  • Nightguards and athletic mouthguards

Treatment will always be tailored to meet the varying needs of our patients, and with the most conservative approach possible.

Fixing Broken and Diseased Teeth

Few adults will escape the need for at least one filling throughout their lifetimes, and many patients will break or damage a tooth, requiring repairs. Restorative dentistry restores both the appearance and health of teeth with the intention of preventing tooth loss.

  • Fillings – seal teeth after decay
  • Bonding – reshapes chipped or worn teeth
  • Veneers – cover the front of teeth for aesthetics and function
  • Crowns – reinforce broken, decayed or root canal teeth
  • Bridges – fill gaps from missing teeth
  • Implants – replace the entire tooth after an extraction

Making Smiles Beautiful

Restorative dentistry repairs teeth and can also improve the appearance of teeth. Using a combination of restorative options and other smile-enhancing treatments, such as teeth whitening and orthodontics, modern cosmetic dentistry gives patients their ideal smile. Feeling confident in how your teeth look can have a positive impact on every facet of life.

Healthy Gums for a Healthy Body

Recent research links gum disease to nearly every organ and system in the body. By taking a proactive approach with customised cleans, we help patients avoid bleeding, painful gums caused by infection.

Gum disease is linked to:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Low birth weight and premature births
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Certain cancer types
  • Respiratory illnesses (chronic bronchitis, COPD)
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Rheumatoid arthritis

Because gum disease can develop due to changes in medical health or hormonal fluctuations caused by pregnancy, we remain diligent and evaluate the gums routinely to protect your smile and overall health.
