patient in dental chairWe want to help you keep your teeth healthy for life. But when infection or decay interfere with your oral health, you deserve effective care that benefits your overall smile and its future. That’s why we provide necessary treatments to combat problems like dental trauma, cavities and disease while keeping your total wellness at the centre of everything we do.

  • Dental Checkup – During your dental checkups, we tailor our services to your individual oral health needs. From preventative scale and cleans to early cavity diagnosis with digital X-rays, it’s our mission to help you keep your teeth strong and stable for life. We also routinely screen for conditions such as oral cancer, bone loss and periodontal disease.
  • Dental Hygiene Visits – It’s no secret-Lightwood Dental wants the best for your oral health! And that means offering the care you need when you need it. At our practice, we aim to prevent future oral health problems by offering effective and thorough dental hygiene visits. Here’s what you can expect upon arriving.
  • Children’s Dentistry – Your child’s smile affects everything from their speech patterns to their self-esteem. Strong, healthy teeth are vital to proper orofacial development as children grow into adults.
  • Custom Mouthguards – If you’re involved in athletic activities, you know how easy it is to become injured. Some of the most common sports accidents that adults and children experience are to the mouth, head and neck. In some cases, the trauma results in broken teeth or a concussion.
  • Emergency Dentistry – When you have a severe toothache or a broken tooth due to an accident, we’re here to provide same day care.
  • Extractions – The decision to undergo a tooth extraction can be daunting, but at Lightwood Dental, our dedicated team is committed to providing a personalized and compassionate approach to ensure a smooth and comfortable experience for every patient.
  • Fillings – Our team is dedicated to ensuring that every patient receives exceptional care and achieves a healthy, beautiful smile, especially when it comes to patients in need of a filling.
  • Periodontal Care (Gum Disease) – Active gum disease causes chronic bleeding, swelling, sensitivity and bad breath. If left untreated, it may also lead to tooth loss.
  • Root Canal Therapy – Manage dental abscesses without having to extract your tooth.
  • Wisdom Tooth Removal – Impacted 3rd molars can damage adjacent teeth and cause crowding throughout your mouth.
  • Bruxism Treatment – When your teeth bite (occlude) together, they should withstand the everyday pressure that is placed on them. Enamel is extremely dense and strong, making teeth sturdier than bone. But if you tend to clench and grind (bruxism) too forcefully each day, it can cause your teeth to wear down or fracture.
