We offer the following general dentistry services in Fort Saskatchewan:
Do you feel a striking pain in your teeth or gums while chewing? We can conduct comprehensive dental exams to determine what might be causing the issue, and check for any anomalies like cavities, chipped crown, etc. Getting a dental check-up from us can help detect any oral problems and prevent them from festering right at the beginning.
Dental implants can offer a substitute for your dental roots when your teeth go missing. They are highly durable and provide a more concrete solution to removable dentures. We can refer you to our dental specialist who can surgically place the implant into your jaw, before we place the final crown, to give you the most natural-looking smile!
Dental Crowns and Bridges
Crowns If your tooth has lost its original shape and size, a dental crown can be placed as a “cap” to restore it. Crowns are highly durable, long-lasting, and provide added protection to your teeth. They can still be prone to tooth decay and require regular maintenance. You can choose from various materials that crowns are available in, including gold, porcelain, zirconia, etc.
Bridges Bridges act as a permanent and fixed substitute for missing teeth. Like crowns, they also come in various materials and can be placed by our dentists to suit your needs. Besides restoring your facial shape, bridges also help with regular speaking and chewing, getting that natural-looking smile, and stopping other teeth from shifting into the gap.
Like the rest of our body, there are nerves present inside our teeth, and root canals are performed to remove decay or infection affecting those particular nerves. All the naturally occurring structures inside the tooth are extracted to eradicate all infections. That space is then filled with medicated material to restore and heal the tooth.
It is essential to get regular dental exams done to ensure that, if required, a root canal can be performed as soon as possible to prevent the tooth from decaying in its entirety since replacement and dental implants can turn out to be more costly.
While we always prefer to save a natural tooth, there are some cases where it's not possible. If a tooth is too badly damaged as a result of decay, gum disease or injury, your dentist may need to remove it. Your dentist can review tooth replacement options with you, such as dental crowns, bridges or implants.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Wisdom teeth are the final set of molars that erupt in the back corners of a normal adult mouth. If the wisdom teeth are causing problems for your oral hygiene, causing crowding or not growing in properly, your dentist may recommend removing them to help preserve your oral health.
Fillings are performed to treat parts of the tooth that have been affected by cracks, chips, decay, or to diminish any gaps between them. We use durable material that is coloured closely to that of your natural tooth to make it look as authentic as possible and last for more extended periods.
What is Dental Sedation?
Dental sedation involves a variety of techniques used to make patients more comfortable during dental procedures. Our dentists can help determine if a dental sedation option is right for you.
At Ross Creek Dental Clinic, we make every effort to help patients feel relaxed and comfortable during their dental appointments. In addition to offering sedation options, we will provide calm reassurance as required, work at your pace, and take breaks when you need them.
Nitrous Oxide (Laughing Gas) Patients inhale nitrous oxide through the mouth and nose. The medication calms patients even though they remain awake and able to communicate. It also tends to reduce gag reflex, ease anxiety and make time pass more quickly.
Oral Sedation Your dentist prescribes oral sedatives in liquid or pill form. The medication is taken orally in advance of a dental appointment. It leaves you awake for the procedure but produces a calming effect to relax you significantly.
For dental care, we use specific technology:

The image is available for viewing in seconds
Pen-sized camera that takes highly accurate photos of your teeth

Very helpful in orthodontic treatment planning
