Our dentists in Victoria are dedicated to improving your family’s oral health. From common to not-so-common dental issues, we bring enthusiasm and a high level of care to every dental service. From maintenance and dental hygiene to dental repairs, our team is always here for you.
Taking care of your teeth is important, and we emphasize preventive dental care for all our patients. This includes the need for routine check-ups and regular teeth cleaning. Regular dental exams are important to check for changes in your dental health and to identify potential problems before they arise. Dental problems caught early are far easier to treat.
Oral Cancer Screening
It’s important to catch signs of oral cancer early, which is why our team is focused on providing oral cancer screening at your dental appointments. We’ll look for signs and symptoms of oral cancer and ask you a few questions to determine your level of risk. If we have concerns, we’ll discuss them with you and take the next steps.
Dental sealants are a preventative measure that can provide long-term protection from cavities. They are most often used for children and teens but can also be applied to adult teeth. Dental sealants are brushed on and sealed with a blue light, leaving a solid surface that is difficult for bacteria to penetrate.
One of the most important tools we can use to diagnose issues and plan treatments is dental X-rays. Each X-ray looks at your teeth and mouth from a different angle, allowing us to see far more than we can by looking inside your mouth. Dental X-rays are very safe and effective, and we use them often to maintain and improve your oral health.
Infections in the tooth roots can occur, and when they do, they often come with a great amount of pain and discomfort, and when left too long, they can lead to tooth loss. It’s important to head to your dentist as soon as you can when you feel or see symptoms of infection, such as swelling, severe pain, and abscesses. Infections like these can be taken care of quickly with a root canal treatment before the infection has a chance to spread.
Although our teeth are usually helpful and give us the ability to bite, chew, speak, and smile, sometimes there are teeth that get in the way of good oral health. When this happens, our dental team at Urban Smiles Victoria can help ensure a smooth removal process. We’ll keep you informed and comfortable during the procedure and help ensure you know exactly how to care for your mouth after.
