WaterLase MD™ technology uses a patented and unique combination of laser energy and water to remove dental decay gently and precisely, with no needle, no drill, and often no pain. Since there is no heat or vibration from the WaterLase, the need for anesthetic shots is eliminated in most cases!
Dental implants are surgical introductions of synthetic tooth roots into the bone. This is followed by placement of dentures, bridges or crowns over this amazingly strong framework. Simple and uncomplicated placement of implants can be done in our office. We refer our patients to specialized surgeons, with whom we work personally, to have these implants placed. Together we plan treatment and place the final denture or bridge or crown in our office.
Professional Teeth Whitening
Teeth whitening can take years off your appearance. The results of a new, bright white smile will leave you looking and feeling younger and more confident. This treatment is often performed routinely in our office. We offer both in-office and take-home treatments, which are equally effective.
Tooth Coloured Fillings
We are now exclusively using tooth coloured filling material unless requested. We find it to be a better alternative to metal fillings. It adds bonding strength to the tooth, requires less drilling, and results in a more attractive smile. In addition, while disposing of metal fillings is an environmental hazard, our fillings are environmentally safe.
Tooth Coloured Crowns
Crowns are the restoration of choice for teeth that are severely broken down, fractured or clinically non-vital (due to root canal therapy). They are also used to provide cosmetic changes with increased strength. The newer porcelain and synthetic materials make crowns almost undetectable among the natural teeth.
This is a great alternative to achieve that Hollywood smile. Veneers are made of thin strong pieces of porcelain that are bonded to the teeth. They are used to repair chipped, decayed or stained teeth and to close gaps between teeth. With a bit of contouring, veneers can rectify crowded or overlapping teeth. If your teeth have discoloured with age, a veneer may improve their appearance. Veneers can also be used for cosmetic reasons instead of crowns, which are more often used for badly damaged or decayed teeth.
Amalgam-Free Restorative Dentistry
Amalgam has long been used as a filling material and also for building restorations like crowns. Not long ago it was the best available component for fillings, but today it has been replaced by different components like porcelain, white composite and ceramic.
The fact that composite resin can be manipulated into a desired shape renders it into one of the most preferred restorative options available in dentistry. Composite white fillings are used to replace old silver fillings, restoring both the health and the appearance of natural teeth.
We aim at achieving a natural clean look, apart from ensuring full bio-compatibility of the restoration. That is why we are glad to inform our patients that all our procedures are Amalgam-free and safe, with the health and well-being of our patients being our primary goal.
Invisalign Invisible Braces
So what are the benefits of healthy, straight teeth? Apart from forming an even smile, properly aligned teeth have several health benefits. Misaligned or crooked teeth have been found to influence a host of negative effects on oral health. Crooked teeth increase the amount of stress on teeth, leading to premature wear of the enamel and chipping of teeth. Improper bite can also be the result of headaches and jaw pain.
The impact of these problems increases with the passage of time, which is why it is recommended that you get rid of this problem before it develops. Invisalign invisible braces are meant to cure alignment issues like overcrowding of teeth, deep bite, cross bite and excessive protrusion.
By treating the alignment of teeth, these invisible aligners will not only improve the way your mouth looks, but will also help prevent dental defects like degeneration and periodontal diseases, without unsightly braces. Unlike metal braces, Invisalign Invisible Braces are relatively fuss free and easy to clean. You can remove them at your convenience, like while brushing or eating. The light weight and comfortable design means that you can wear them for long periods of time, without potentially hurting your gums or teeth.
Replacement of a lost or broken tooth is absolutely necessary. Losing a tooth not only means having a gap in your smile, buthas a lot of health-related consequences as well. One of the more common effects is the reduction in the strength of the bite. Teeth do not work individually but as a unit, dividing pressure amongst each other to increase strength. With even a single tooth missing, the amount of strength you're able to exert can decrease.
The gap created between teeth could also affect your speech, depending on its position. A gap is also vulnerable to attack from bacteria, which can sometimes be the cause of periodontal disease. To help avoid these after-effects of tooth loss, it is recommended that a restoration procedure be conducted as soon as possible.
Dental bridges have been a helpful restorative method for a long time. Their strength lies in their unconventional approach. Instead of a procedure to insert an artificial tooth, it makes use of the natural teeth and fills the gap without replacing the roots. If the adjoining teeth are strong enough, a bridge is prepared and fixed using two neighbouring teeth as support. This helps increase the biting strength and ensures that the bridge stays firmly in place for a long time. It usually takes 2 visits to complete this procedure and the result is natural looking set of teeth.
The process that facilitates the repair of damaged tooth surface is called a crown or a dental cap. Due to multiple reasons like gum disease, cavities, chipped tooth surfaces, broken tooth surfaces or even a complex dental procedure, the biting surface of your teeth can become damaged. Repairing the damaged tooth surface is essential for maintaining good oral health.
A damaged biting surface could trigger problems like periodontal diseases, a root canal infection, headaches and even tooth loss. The placement of a dental crown means the replacement of the entire biting surface. Newer and more advanced options of surface restoration, like inlays and onlays, means the use of crowns is generally reserved to greater restorations only, but the stability and strength it grants is unmatchable.
A dental cap may be prepared using either gold or metal alloys, porcelain or a combination of these, depending on the position of the tooth and the compatibility with patient’s body. Porcelain provides a natural looking finish, which can hardly be detected from the outside. This kind of restoration usually lasts for a long time if proper care is taken at home and by visiting the dentist regularly.
Extraction of teeth may sound scary to those uncomfortable with the idea of being in the dentist’s chair, but the team at Newmarket Dental Care can perform extractions safely at your convenience. Our motive is to ensure sound dental health of our patients and for that, the removal of teeth may be necessary in the following cases:
Full Mouth Restoration
Full mouth restoration is meant to transform the physical organization of your teeth in order to benefit your health. The benefit this dental work could have is directly related to the condition of your teeth.
Broken, worn-out teeth are detrimental to overall health. They can also potentially diminish your confidence. Newmarket Dental Care can help by offering this comprehensive dental procedure. You might be a candidate for Full mouth restoration in the following cases:
Being a complicated procedure, it requires some planning as it may involve the use of several dental procedures like bridges, implants, inlays, onlays, veneers, gum therapy or root canals. Dr. Kin and our team of dedicated professionals will do their best to help you obtain the smile you want and the confidence to show it too!
Oral Hygiene Services
Your teeth are one of the most important parts of your body. They require consistent maintenance in order to perform at their peak ability. Even little changes inside the mouth can have a greater effect on the overall health of teeth, which is why you need to maintain proper hygiene.
With little to no dental care, your mouth could be vulnerable to attack from bacteria and disease, causing infection. Everyone brushes their teeth but not all know how to do it properly. Even brushing properly cannot ensure 100% protection from germs. Periodontal disease doesn’t become apparent until it has already progressed into the final stages. This is why it is so important to have regular checkups on the health of your mouth.
The hygiene services that Newmarket Dental Care offers are just the kind of maintenance you need to deter common ailments. With regular cleaning and fluoride treatments, our hygienists can keep a tab on the growth of harmful bacteria inside your mouth. Extensive cleaning can wipe out hidden germs, which can be inaccessible by toothbrush or dental floss. With good oral hygiene habits and regular checkups, you might be able to avoid undergoing more serious dental procedures in the future.
Non-Surgical Gum Treatment
Gum disease can reach advanced stages if unchecked for a long time and may require aggressive treatment if the condition is serious. Newmarket Dental Care offers non-surgical gum therapy for the treatment of periodontal diseases. The most common symptoms of gum disease are bleeding, pain, receding or redness in gums as well as bad breath. If you were to notice any of these, you can schedule an appointment with Dr. Kin to have the problem diagnosed.
We offer a variety of treatment options like root planing, curettage and direct application of medicine to the affected area. The effect of these treatments will then be measured to establish whether further therapy is required or if the case should be transferred to a periodontist for a surgical procedure. To reduce the chances of developing gum disease, be sure to make regular visits to the dentist and maintain proper oral hygiene.
A missing tooth can be the cause of not one, but many problems in simple day-to-day activities. Apart from affecting the strength of your bite, a lost tooth can create an undesirable gap. The loss of multiple teeth could also potentially affect your speech.
For a long term solution, bridges or dental implants are restorative procedures for replacing lost teeth. Implant restoration holds a few advantages over bridges in number of ways. Implants are basically metal abutments which are surgically screwed to the bone in order to act as a strong root for the restoration.
An implant tends to last longer if taken care of properly and also does not greatly impact the health of the adjoining teeth. Implant restoration is a viable tooth loss solution, one that closely resembles your natural teeth both in function and looks. Dr. Kin will be happy to discuss the pros and cons dental implant procedures, and whether they offer the best option for you.
Malocclusion which is also referred to as ‘bad bite’ is a common dental problem where a patient’s teeth are not properly aligned on the two dental arches. Generally, malocclusions are not considered a serious threat to your dental health, but if your misalignment is severe, you can encounter a number of dental troubles. This is because your mouth tries to optimise its functions in a growth-inhibiting environment. As a result, you can encounter problems like crooked teeth, overcrowding of teeth and speech impediments.
Porcelain Inlays/ Onlays
The porcelain inlays and onlays service are indirect restorations, which are prepared in the laboratory after taking a sample of the tooth structure. Because of this precise imprint, they are very comfortable and function like your natural teeth. Not only that, but the material used to prepare these restorations behaves like enamel and looks natural from the outside.
While an inlay is used to repair minor decays or the chipping of teeth enamel to the centre of the tooth’s surface, an onlay can be used to restore a damaged cusp. This is what makes them so convenient, because unlike the crown, the entire surface doesn't need to be replaced – only the broken part is restored with help of a powerful resin. Because they are bonded with the tooth, porcelain inlays/onlays can last for a long time, protecting the teeth from any further damage. Used for both cosmetic and restorative purposes, this dental work requires precision and experience.
At Newmarket Dental Care, we strive to provide the most natural looking and stable dental solutions to our patients.
A porcelain veneer, a simple cosmetic procedure, works by covering up the damaged or stained tooth with a porcelain cap. There are a host of problems that can be improved by veneers, they are:
Veneers are prepared in the laboratory after taking an impression of the teeth. This procedure does not require much preparation or manipulation so you will be able to keep most of your natural teeth. A slight layer of the enamel is shaved off to make it compatible for an adhesive, which is applied to create a bond between the veneer and the tooth.
Porcelain veneers are much more resistant to discolouring when compared with dental bonding, saving it from stains occurring on intake of staining products like red wine, tobacco products and coffee.
Root Canal Treatment
Each root has a canal, where the nerve tissue, blood supply and other essential elements are located. It is hidden securely under the dentin but sometimes, because of a crack in the tooth, bacteria can reach the interior of the tooth and cause infection in the nerves. The infection starts a rapid process of decay inside the tooth. The most noticeable symptoms of infection in the root canal are:
Root Canal therapy focuses on taking out the infection from the inside and replacing the decayed pulp. For this Dr. Kin will penetrate the outer surface of the tooth and reach the canal to clear the infection using endodontic files. After replacing the pulp, the opening is sealed with a resin and then hardened by a special light. The surface of the tooth has to be replaced by a crown in most cases, which will strengthen the bite and help save the tooth from future infection.
TMJ (TMD) Therapy
A dysfunction in the Temporomandibular Joint or TMJ, can cause problems like stiffness in the jaw, pain in opening and closing movement of the jaw, difficulty in sideways movement of the jaw and headaches. Apart from this, if you notice a slight popping sound right in front of the ear lobe and just above the jaw bone, you should consult Dr. Kin and make an appointment for a diagnosis.
Avoiding treatment of this condition and enduring it is not recommended as the longer you wait for treatment, the more aggressive treatment it may require. Through TMJ (TMD) Therapy, we will offer you a multitude of treatment options, not to simply suppress the symptoms, but in order to cure your case of TMJ.
Teeth Whitening Treatment
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic procedure helpful especially for those who desire a healthier looking and brighter smile.
With age and continuous exposure to things like smoking, alcohol and sugar, the whiteness of natural teeth can degrade, making the enamel appear more pale or yellow. Even with regular use of mouthwash and routine brushing, it becomes difficult to maintain white shiny teeth, which is why we offer a host of whitening methods for our patients.
Ranging from in-office whitening to take-home customized whitening kits; Newmarket Dental Care has a lot to offer for those who seek a flawless and confident smile.
It only takes one sitting to complete whitening treatment in office so you can visit us in Newmarket, Ontario soon!
Athletic Mouth Guard
Your own body could prevent you from giving everything on the field or in the rink. When under immense stress, such as during a tense situation during a game, players often tend to clench their teeth, which sends a signal to the brain to slow things down, hence reducing the intensity and energy of your efforts.
Athletic mouth guards can not only protect your teeth from damage done by clenching, but can also have a positive impact on your performance. Customized mouth guards are lightweight and their comfortable and precise fit allows athletes to take greater control of their game, without diverting their attention. Athletic mouth guards are a vital part of a sportsman’s kit, especially those involved in high intensity and impact sports like football, hockey, basketball and baseball.
Migraine Pain Prevention
Lasting for hours and sometimes the entire day, migraines and headaches can be triggered by many factors. If you have not been able to find an adequate solution for your recurring headaches, you might want to visit Newmarket Dental Care for a dental check-up, as the root cause of the headache could very well be due to factors related to dentistry and overlooked complications.
The condition of your teeth can determine how smooth the opening and closing movements of your mouth are. Teeth clenching, gradual tooth degeneration, misalignments or malocclusions can all cause stress in the jaw, resulting in the development of dysfunction in the temporomandibular joints.
Habitually clenching teeth while under stress gradually damages the surfaces of teeth, in addition to causing recurring headaches. To prevent teeth from clenching and grinding overnight, while you sleep, an aligner or night guard can be custom made, which can also be worn during the day. These aligners are lightweight and transparent, so you can wear them comfortably for extended periods of time. These customised aligners may not only help prevent pain, but they will also protect teeth from acquiring damage.
