Comprehensive Oral Exams
Your healthy smile stays protected when we can check up on your oral health at regular intervals. Our comprehensive oral exams are thorough but gentle. You can expect us to take updated x-rays to compare them to previous x-rays, conduct an oral cancer screening to check the soft tissues of the mouth, and examine the condition of your teeth, gums, tongue, and face.
Dental Hygiene & Cleanings
The friendly dental hygienists at Harrow Dental Office are ready to welcome you into the chair and have you heading home with smooth, clean teeth. We’ll focus on removing buildups of plaque and bacteria that accumulate over time, even with regular brushing and flossing. By the time you walk out, your smile will look brighter and your mouth will feel fresher and more comfortable.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is the result of mutations in the DNA of the mouth’s cells. These changes can be noted by screening tests, in which your dentist gently feels the areas inside and around the mouth, jaw, and neck. We make oral cancer screening a regular part of every oral examination to ensure our patients can be diagnosed and treated quickly.
If you’ve been experiencing pain in your teeth or gums, one of the most likely causes is an infection in the soft pulp that is located inside the roots of the tooth. A root canal works to clear out the infected pulp, leaving the tooth in place in your mouth. Many patients are fearful of root canals, but after having one, find them similar to having a dental filling placed.
If you bring your children to visit the gentle and friendly dentists and dental hygienists at Harrow Dental Office, we may offer to apply a dental sealant to protect their permanent teeth from future cavities. The sealant liquid is quickly painted on and hardened in a pain-free procedure. Plus, it dries clear and feels like regular tooth enamel, so kids won’t even know it’s there. Sealants are a great way to guard against cavities!
Although we can tell a lot by looking in your mouth directly, our dentists like to have an idea of what is going on below the surface level of the mouth. We use various types of x-rays to look at different structures in your mouth, including unerupted teeth, the jaw bone, the roots of the teeth, and much more. X-rays help us diagnose and treat issues that are tough to spot, such as tiny cavities located between the teeth.
Sometimes a painful, infected, or damaged tooth will need to be removed by our dentists. We provide comfortable tooth extraction services in Harrow that allow you to be treated right here by our dentists. We make sure your procedure is comfortable and relaxed using pain medication and numbing agents. We can also provide nitrous oxide sedation for patients who experience fear before tooth extraction.
If your smile is less than pearly, we have simple options to improve the colour of your teeth in less time than over-the-counter strips or trays. We provide you with take-home whitening kits to help you keep your teeth whiter at home.
