Here’s a list of some of the services we provide at our Northgate dental office:
Exams, including oral cancer screening and periodontal assessment
For patients who are new to the practice, have concerns or an emergency, we take digital X-Rays followed by a visual oral exam. For a limited time, new patients receive a complimentary oral cancer screening ($75 value) with every new patient comprehensive exam.
If plaque and tartar is left on the teeth, it provides the right conditions for bacteria to thrive. The bacteria irritate the gums which means that they bleed more easily. This is the early stage of gum disease called gingivitis. If you have gingivitis, your dentist or hygienist will clean your teeth by scaling or polishing them. Most adults have some degree of gum disease and some have advanced bone loss attributed to periodontal disease. We can get you back on track!
When decay is touching the nerve of your tooth, we recommend Root Canal Treatment to save the tooth from an extraction. This involves removing the decay and the nerve from inside the tooth, filling and sealing the remaining space to prevent bacteria from causing further infection.
Tooth-colored, mercury-free fillings
For teeth that have cavities or small chips with no nerve involvement, we apply a filling shaped and colored like a natural tooth. (No more silver fillings!)
A dental crown is a custom-made, tooth-shaped cap that completely covers a damaged tooth, restoring its shape, size and strength. Dental crowns are used to restore tooth damage caused by injury, decay, root canals, bite problems or natural wear. A bridge is a device that replaces missing teeth and uses adjacent teeth as anchors, giving a natural looking result.

A solution for tooth loss. A dental implant is an artificial titanium tooth root that the doctor places into your jaw bone to hold a replacement tooth. Dental implants are an ideal option for people with good general oral health. An implant crown or cap fits over the top.
For hopeless cases that cannot be saved, we recommend removing the diseased, infected, or broken teeth in the least traumatic way possible.
Children and Teens
We offer children gentle cleanings, exams, fluoride, and sealants to prevent teeth from developing cavities. We treat cavities with tooth colored fillings. Six month check-ups are recommended. Learn more about kids dentistry at All Smiles Family Dentistry
This is a removable device with artificial teeth to make up for missing teeth. A denture will help you chew, smile and live life to the fullest. It is recommended when there are multiple areas of missing teeth.
A mouthguard is designed to help prevent wear and breakage of your teeth. Many people do not realize that they grind or clench at night and may be causing irreversible damage.
Mouthguards are preventative and protective removable appliances custom made to fit!
