Tooth Loss

If you unexpectedly lose a tooth, swift action can help your dentist preserve your tooth for reinsertion. Here are your next steps your tooth is knocked out:

Pick up the tooth by the crown – do not touch the root – and rinse gently underwater.

Only touch the tooth on the crown, the part of the tooth that you use to chew and only use water to rinse dirt off the tooth. Refrain from drying the tooth or wrapping it in paper towel.

While still wet, attempt to reinsert the tooth into the socket, if possible.

Touching only the crown of the tooth, line the tooth up with the socket and gently close your mouth until the tooth reinserts into the socket. Hold the tooth in place with your fingers or by gently biting down until you see your dentist.

Keep the tooth wet at all times

If you’re unable to reinsert your tooth into the socket, keep the tooth wet by storing it in milk, inside your mouth in your cheek, or in an emergency tooth preservation kit.

In some cases, your dentist may be able to preserve your natural tooth within 30 minutes of the tooth’s detachment.

Severe Cracks and Chips

If your cracked or chipped tooth is causing you severe pain, call our office for emergency dental assistance. Following the crack or chip, rinse your mouth out with warm water and apply a cold compress to the exterior of your face where the tooth is located to reduce swelling.

Abscessed Tooth

A dental abscess is a condition where a bacterial infection causes pus to form inside your tooth. This condition can cause a variety of symptoms including oral pain, fever, sensitivity and swelling. If you experience these symptoms, we encourage you to call our office immediately as a dental abscess can cause an infection to spread to other parts of the body.

Hygiene & Prevention

Preventative measures and regular oral hygiene is your best defence against cavities, gum disease and other discomforts. At Pinewood Dental Care, we want our clients to have a positive experience during these important appointments to encourage regular dental hygiene for the best oral health.

Your comfort matters to us. This is why we offer sedation dentistry to put you at ease during your appointment. We offer a variety of types of sedation dentistry to ensure we can accommodate the needs of all our clients.

More Info

Wonder if sedation dentistry is right for you? The need for sedation dentistry is different for everyone; however, we do recommend sedation for our clients that experience anxiety around dental procedures, have had a negative experience in the past, experience soreness or sensitivity during dental procedures or have a resistance to local anaesthetic. Our staff is always looking for ways to make your visit more comfortable. If you think sedation dentistry is right for you, let us know.

Types of Sedation Dentistry

Nitrous Oxide Sedation

Nitrous oxide is administered in a gas state to be inhaled through a small mask. With this type of sedation, patients remain conscious during their procedure but will experience calming effects. The side effects of nitrous oxide sedation wear off shortly after the mask is removed.

Oral Sedation

If your dentist recommends oral sedation, you will be provided with a prescription to take approximately an hour before your procedure. Much like nitrous oxide, patients remain conscious while using an oral sedative; however, this type of sedation helps to ease anxiety. Patients sometimes feel drowsy while the oral sedation is in effect.

Intravenous Sedation

Intravenous sedation, also known as IV sedation, put patients into a “twilight” state of consciousness that causes the feeling of drowsiness and deep relaxation. While some patients may feel unconscious, IV sedation allows the dentist to wake them up if necessary. It is common for patients not to remember the procedure afterwards when using IV sedation.

Root Canal

If you’re regularly experiencing pain and discomfort, a root canal can provide long-lasting relief. Our dental professionals will use state-of-the-art equipment to locate the source of your pain, carefully cleans and shapes the nerve canals of the tooth’s root before sealing the prepared space.

More info

Genetics, deep cavities, cracked teeth or issues with a previous filling can all cause the need for a root canal procedure. Patients can typically detent the need to a root canal when they experience lingering sensitivity to hot or cold sensations, painful eating or chewing, swollen or darken gums and visibly cracked teeth. If you experience any of these symptoms, talk to your dentists to learn if a root canal is right for you.

Is a Root Canal Procedure Painful?

Root canals often have a reputation for being a painful and unpleasant experience. However, root canals are designed to repair a tooth’s root and relieve pain caused by damaged teeth. To reduce pain and anxiety during the procedure, your dentist will administer an anaesthetic. While you may feel soreness, numbness and mild discomfort following your procedure, a root canal can save you from some serious health effects in the future while saving your natural tooth.

Periodontal Dentistry

Periodontitis causes the gums to separate from the teeth. The space between the gums and the teeth create pockets that trap food and bacteria, which leads to unpleasant infections. With periodontal dentistry, our experienced oral surgeons can draw on a variety of techniques to stitch the gums back into place, replace damaged bone or tissues with a graft or insert a small mesh material to encourage natural tissue regeneration.

More Info

Not only is periodontitis a painful gum disease, but it also affects your appears that may leave you feeling insecure about your smile. Our periodontal dentistry can bring life back into your smile and get you feeling back to your regular self.

Periodontal Dentistry Services

Dental Scaling and Root Planing

Dental scaling and root planing is a deep cleaning procedure to remove plaque that builds up closer to the room of the teeth. With periodontitis causes deep pockets between the tooth and the gum, it is critical to get this area cleaned by a professional to ensure healthy, long-lasting teeth and keep tooth decay at bay.

Periodontal Grafting

Our experienced periodontist can use gum tissue from other parts of your mouth to fill any recessions of the gum. Not only will this help to restore your appearance, but it can also help to prevent infection in the pockets caused by periodontitis. This procedure is done under local anaesthesia making it virtually painless.

Periodontal Flaps

A periodontal flap procedure is a minimally invasive process that involves gently lifting the gum from the tooth to give your periodontist access to the tooth closer to the root. At this time, your periodontist can provide a deep cleaning, tooth reshaping or insert a mesh that encourages natural tissue regeneration around the tooth. The gum is then stitched back into place and the natural relationship between the bone and gum tissue is restored.

Periodontal Regeneration

The regeneration process gives access to the deep roots of your teeth for the periodontist to clean the gum pockets and insert an enamel matrix protein. The site is sutured closed and is then monitored for six months as your gums naturally regenerate lost tissue. Periodontal regeneration is less invasive than a periodontal flap procedure.

Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening is typically required when there is a crack or fracture that requires a crown after your reparative procedure. If the new crown touches the bone that supports the tooth, you will experience painful inflammation. To avoid this your periodontist can use a local anaesthetic to lift the gum from the tooth and reshape the bone that supports the tooth to keep the new crown from touching it. Your periodontist will then suture the gum back in place.
