"Wisdom” Teeth is the name given to the last or third molar in your mouth. They usually develop between the ages of 17 and 24 and can be removed for a variety of reasons. After they grow in, the teeth can be too close to the back of the jaw, allowing food particles to get stuck behind the tooth – out of the reach of a tooth brush or floss.
Sometimes brushing and flossing isn’t enough. Even if you brush and floss daily, your gums and teeth should be checked on a regular basis by your dentist to avoid problems you can’t see in the mirror.
Are you about your smile? As a cosmetic dentist in Hamilton, we have a variety of procedures to fix imperfections like discoloured or chipped teeth. Our procedures will transform your smile and create that lasting first impression.
We are happy to offer our patients CEREC for their convenience. This advanced technology will make your dental treatments much less taxing on your time. CEREC stands for ceramic reconstruction. Inlays are used when the cavity is too large.
A root canal is a procedure that is needed when the pulp inside a tooth dies. This can be due to a cracked tooth, a deep cavity or a tooth injury.
Some of the most common sources of dental trauma are sports injuries and nighttime grinding. At Villa Dental Hamilton, we create custom appliances that protect your teeth from both of these sources of damage. They reduce your chances of chipping, damaging, or losing a tooth.
Even with a regular dental routine, dental decay is a still a common problem that left untreated can lead to other more serious issues. At Old Villa Dental Center we can help.
Dental health doesn’t just start and end with a person’s teeth. There are other problem areas that must be maintained. Gum disease is chronic bacterial infection that not only affects gums, but your overall oral health. It begins with plaque, which contains harmful bacteria, that isn’t removed from teeth by brushing and flossing.
Discolouration is a common dental problem. As people age enamel becomes weaker and darker causing stains to appear. Certain acidic food and drinks, such as orange juice weakens the enamel and leaves stains, while other foods such as tobacco and coffee can also change the colour of teeth. At the Villa Dental Center in Hamilton, your dental Hygienist will use these teeth whitening systems to change that.
If missing teeth are causing you problems, The Villa Dental Hamilton can not only fix the problem, but keep your teeth and jaw healthy. The most effective solution to missing teeth are dental implants. We are proud to provide this procedure in our Hamilton surgery or to refer you to an Oral Surgeon, should we deem it necessary.
Oral Cancer often manifests as a small lump or lesion (either pale or dark in colour) in or around the mouth, but is treatable if found in its early stages. Symptoms can also include white or red patches around the mouth, pain, and paresthesia (if left untreated), mouth sores and problems swallowing.
Some dentures are a removable, set of artificial teeth that can be used in either the upper or lower jaw of the patient’s mouth. Some of them are attached via dental implants, giving you superior stability and help your jaw maintain its original shape. When attached by implants, they will also significantly reduce bone loss.
