complete dental care
Nose Creek Dental Centre strives to provide our patients with access to full dental health care solutions.
This includes referrals to specialized dentists who are trained in Canada’s nine recognized dental specialties. If you have advanced oral health issues that need to be addressed with a specialized approach, we’re here to connect you with advanced dentistry techniques.
The branch of dentistry that focuses on the soft pulp and roots inside the hard tooth structure is known as endodontics. Endodontic specialists are focused on diagnosing and treating tooth pain caused by problems in the pulp and roots. The most common endodontic treatment is a root canals procedure, which clears out infected tooth pulp to preserve the natural structure of the teeth.
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Dentists with specialized training in oral and maxillofacial surgery are able to treat a wide variety of diseases, conditions, injuries, and issues in the hard and soft tissue of the mouth. Some of the procedures practiced in this branch of dentistry include cleft lip and cleft palate surgery, cosmetic facial surgery, and reconstructive jaw surgery.
Oral Medicine & Pathology
In oral medicine and pathology, there is a focus on diagnosis and the development of treatment plans for a wide range of oral issues. These specialists primarily use non-surgical treatment methods to manage oral conditions. If you have additional medical complications, you may be referred to an oral medicine and pathology specialist.
Oral and maxillofacial radiology is focused on medical imaging, including dental x-rays. A specialist may order, create, or interpret a large range of images captured by imaging tools, which may include CT scans and MRI scans. Dentists trained in radiology combine advanced knowledge of diagnostic imaging tools and various oral conditions.
An orthodontist is responsible for observing the growth of dental structures, including the teeth. When these structures mature incorrectly, an orthodontist can intervene with corrective treatments and appliances, such as traditional orthodontics (braces) or modern orthodontic solutions (clear aligner therapy or Invisalign).
Infants, children, and individuals with special needs often require different types of observation techniques and treatments than adults. Dentists trained in pediatric dentistry are equipped with knowledge about how to diagnose, treat, and correct common issues experienced by children, including unique ways of delivering treatments.
A periodontist is concerned with the supporting structures that surround the teeth, including the gums. Periodontists work to prevent and diagnose potential conditions affecting these structures (which can also affect the stability of the teeth), such as gum disease or periodontitis. They may also offer restorative or reconstructive procedures such as gum grafting to repair damage caused by periodontal issues.
When teeth or other portions of the mouth and face require replacement with prosthetics, a prosthodontist can help restore the look, comfort, and function of the mouth and the overall health and wellbeing of a patient. Prosthodontists may be called in for particularly difficult cases of bone loss or when multiple procedures are required for a full restoration.
