At Cedar Valley Dental Centre, we know the best way to a beautiful, healthy smile is through regular checkups and cleanings. Dr. Michael Rockwell and staff can help in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of conditions adversely affecting the health of teeth and gums.
To ensure proper hygiene, most patients should visit the dentist at least once every six months. During your visit, we will check for any signs of plaque, tartar, cavities, or gum disease. We will also evaluate the mechanical aspects of your bite patterns and jaw alignment. Our office can diagnose and treat complex bite disorders.
We use digital radiography and tomography to help reduce your exposure to X-rays and improve our diagnostic abilities. Digital imaging is a great tool in accurately diagnosing certain dental conditions.
We use modern sedation techniques and equipment to reduce dental anxieties.
Whether due to tooth crowding, infection, or risk of infection, a tooth extraction may be necessary under certain circumstances. An anesthetic is generally applied before an extraction, greatly limiting the amount of pain. Following an extraction, several tooth replacement options are available.
Through oral surgery, we can help remedy issues related to tooth loss, impacted teeth, jaw fractures, and other issues.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is sometimes required when the inner tissue of a tooth known as the “pulp” becomes infected. Commonly, the term “root canal” is viewed as being a painful procedure. In reality, root canal therapy it is no more painful than most dental filling procedures. The period leading up to treatment can be quite painful. When tooth pulp is infected and inflamed, the tissue can press against the delicate nerves, causing severe pain.
TMJ Disorder Relief
We take a comprehensive, neuromuscular approach in the treatment of jaw pain and headaches that result from temporomandibular joint disorder, commonly known as “TMJ.” To give you a healthy, functional bite, we use Myotronics’ systems to evaluate and treat neuromuscular conditions that can affect your teeth and jawbone.
