Our Services

  • General dentistry for all ages

    General Dentistry encompasses the assessment, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of oral cavity, maxillofacial area, and associated structures. While our office offers a comprehensive range of general services, our primary focus lies in preventive care. We customize checkup and cleaning schedules to meet each patient's specific requirements. Children, adults, and seniors all have distinct dental needs. By emphasizing general maintenance of oral hygiene and tooth health, our aim is to assist you and your family in evading severe dental issues that may necessitate expensive treatments.

  • Cleaning

    During a cleaning appointment, the dentist or hygienist performs a thorough removal of various dental deposits, including plaque, calculus, and extrinsic stains. Plaque refers to the soft accumulation of food and bacteria on the teeth, whereas calculus is the hardened form of plaque that builds up over time when plaque is not adequately removed. Calculus can develop above and/or below the gum tissues. Following the cleaning procedure, a polishing process is carried out to enhance the teeth's appearance and smoothness.

  • White resin filling

    A filling is necessary when a tooth is diagnosed with caries (cavities) or decay. The decayed portion of the tooth is carefully removed, and a white resin material is then applied to reshape and contour the tooth, blending seamlessly with the surrounding teeth. To ensure a comfortable experience, the dentist will administer freezing to numb the area before proceeding with the treatment.

  • Extractions

    There are various reasons why a tooth may require extraction, such as severe decay, a cracked tooth, loose teeth, or lack of sufficient space for teeth, including wisdom teeth. At Gerrard Dental Care, our dentist prioritizes your comfort during the extraction procedure. To achieve this, complete local anesthesia will be administered, ensuring that you experience minimal discomfort throughout the extraction process.

  • Crowns

    A dental crown is a custom-made tooth covering designed to restore the form, function, and aesthetics of a damaged tooth. Typically crafted from porcelain, it can also be composed of other materials like metal or porcelain fused to a metal substructure. Crowns serve multiple purposes, including protecting a tooth that has undergone a root canal treatment or safeguarding a tooth with a large filling from potential fractures. Additionally, they can enhance the overall appearance and aesthetics of the teeth.

  • Root canals

    The pulp refers to the soft tissue inside the teeth, comprising blood vessels, nerves, and connective tissue. When the pulp becomes inflamed or diseased, a root canal procedure becomes necessary. This can occur due to various reasons, such as deep cavities, cracked teeth, or injuries, even without visible cracks or fractures. During a root canal treatment, the diseased pulp is removed, followed by thorough cleaning and sealing of the pulp chamber and canals. If left untreated, it can lead to pain, swelling, and eventual extraction of the tooth.

  • Crowns, bridges and implant restoration

    A crown is used to strengthen a tooth with a large filling when there is insufficient natural tooth structure to support the filling long-term. It can also be employed to attach a bridge, protect a weak tooth from further damage, or restore a broken tooth. Crowns are a viable solution for covering discolored or misshapen teeth. Additionally, we offer crown restorations for surgically placed dental implants at our office.
    A bridge is utilized to replace missing teeth, bridging the gap created by one or more missing teeth. It relies on adjacent teeth for support and can be made from an alloy, porcelain, or a combination of materials. The success of a bridge hinges upon a strong foundation, so it is crucial to maintain the health and strength of the supporting teeth.
    Implants present another effective option for replacing missing teeth. Unlike bridges, implants do not rely on adjacent teeth for support. These titanium posts, compatible with the human body, are surgically placed in the upper or lower jaw and act as sturdy anchors for crowns, implant-supported bridges, and even dentures.

  • Dentures

    Missing teeth can make your cheeks look hollow and your mouth look sunken. More importantly, your diet can suffer. Those missing multiple teeth may want to consider dentures for both function and appearance. Depending on the amount of teeth missing, we may suggest partial or full dentures. During your consultation, we’ll assess all your options and you can choose what you feel most comfortable with.
    Partial dentures are ideal for those who are missing only a few teeth in a row. They latch onto the remaining gum line and any intact adjacent teeth. Even if you only have one tooth on your dental arch, a partial denture may still work best, since the remaining tooth serves as a natural anchor. When your dental arch no longer has any teeth,
    A complete denture is the optimal solution. You can choose the traditional kind that sits on the gum or choose to have dentures that are anchored by dental implants. The latter option has the best hold, but involves surgery. Our dentists can discuss all the details so you can make an informed decision.
