Our Toronto dental practice offers a full spectrum of general dentistry and preventive dental services, including:
Athletic Mouth Guards
If you or your child are involved in any type of sports, wearing a custom fitted mouth guard is one of your best pieces of insurance. Not only does it protect teeth, it can also reduce the risk of concussion.
Experiencing jaw pain, headaches or facial soreness? Ask our dentists how you can protect your smile against excessive wear caused by jaw clenching and grinding.
Gentle Tooth Extractions
Extraction is a last resort, but sometimes it is necessary. Badly infected teeth can jeopardize the health of their neighbors, including your healthy teeth and gums. Fortunately, we can help!
The best time to have wisdom teeth removed by Dr. Reyes is during a patient's late teenage years or early 20s. These immature wisdom teeth are smaller, so surgery is less complicated and potentially less painful. If your wisdom teeth have not started to erupt, we will use x-ray imaging to locate them and determine if it’s time to have them removed.
Seal off deep grooves in the molars that are vulnerable to tooth decay with this inexpensive and effective preventive treatment. Dental sealants guard against cavities by forming a “shield” over the enamel of your teeth, keeping out bacteria and acids. Be sure to ask about pediatric dental sealants!
Fluoride can be used to re-mineralize weak areas of tooth enamel, keeping them resilient against bacteria and reducing the chance of tooth decay and cavities.
Desensitizing Treatments for Sensitive Teeth
Are you suffering from tooth sensitivity? Do hot or cold food and drink cause you pain? Ask Dr. Reyes about your options for desensitizing treatment and get back to enjoying your favorite foods without pain!
Professional Teeth Cleanings (Prophylaxis)
Professional teeth cleanings or dental prophylaxis is a cleaning procedure that thoroughly cleans your teeth. It is an important preventive measure to help stop the progression of gingivitis and periodontal disease. We recommend our orally healthy patients receive this type of procedure twice a year.
Oral Cancer Screening
Tobacco users aren’t the only ones who should be concerned about oral cancer. Oral cancer is on the rise. That’s why at North Shores Dental, we provide oral cancer screenings as part of your regular-checkup to all of our patients over the age of 18.
Chronic halitosis is a common problem with more than 50 million people suffering in the United States alone. Common halitosis remedies like mouthwashes and breath mints are often sufficient to mask the symptoms, but if you’re concerned about the root cause, schedule an appointment with one of our Toronto dentists to discuss your treatment options.
Our practice uses digital x-rays to produce enhanced computer images of our patient’s teeth, gums, and other oral structures and conditions. Digital x-rays are key to early detection and effective treatment of dental problems.
Cone Beam 3D Imaging
Dr. Reyes and associates use CBCT cone beam dental technology for precise diagnosis and dental treatment planning.
Our cone beam 3D imaging system is used for dental services like:
- Dental Implants
- Dental X-Rays
- Restorative Dentistry
- Cosmetic Dental Treatments
This imaging system is at the center of everything we do at North Shores Dental because it virtually eliminates all guesswork, giving our Toronto dentist in depth anatomical data to precision plan your treatment!
X-rays can be an excellent way to help diagnose oral health problems, but an intraoral camera takes it a step further. At our local Toronto dental practice, we use our intraoral scanner to examine areas of our patient’s mouths that x-rays can’t show. We can even take digital impressions with it - which means no more messy, goopy traditional impressions!
Every family enjoys the comfort of having a doctor and dentist that they consider their family care provider.
When it comes to being your family dentist in Toronto, Dr. Reyes, Dr. Pham, Dr. Pahota, and the rest of our team at North Shores Dental are glad to serve you.
