In addition to our restorative, cosmetic and general dentistry services, Newmarket Dental Care is happy to provide our patients with additional oral health services. Read through the services we provide and if you wish to discuss or ask questions about any of them, we'd be happy to talk.
Additional Dental Services
We offer oral healthcare services such as:
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!
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.
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.
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.
