Why Professional Dental Care Is Important?

Regular dental clinic visits help keep teeth clean and oral hygiene in check.​

  • Protect your teeth from decay, gum disease, and tooth loss

Cavities are holes on your teeth's hard surfaces caused by dental decay. Brushing your teeth regularly will help you avoid gum disease, cavities, and tooth decay.

  • Maintain good oral hygiene

A healthy mouth is essential for good health. Professional dental care will keep plaque, tartar, and gum disease at bay.

  • Improve your self-confidence

Bacteria commonly generate foul breath, and thorough brushing is inadequate to remove it. You may avoid this problem by getting professional dental cleanings on a regular basis.

Oral Cancer Checkup

Oral cancer screening is the early diagnosis of cancer or precancerous conditions in the mouth. During the exam, your dentist will search for red or white spots or worrisome sores in your mouth and beneath your tongue. The dentist will look for lumps or abnormal textures in your oral tissues and swellings on the exterior of your throat/neck.

Oral Cancer Signs and Symptoms

Adults over the age of 45 are at risk for oral cancer. But, regardless of your age, you should undergo an oral cancer screening if you have any of the following symptoms:
 

  • Patches of discolouration in your mouth or on your lips that might be white or dark red in colour

  • Unusual lumps or changes in texture

  • Unhealing canker sores, numbness, or persistent bleeding

  • Unusual sensations on the tongue, changes in taste, and difficulty swallowing

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Wisdom teeth are the final molars to emerge in your mouth. When there is inadequate space for the wisdom teeth, they frequently contact or destroy the tissue surrounding them. Wisdom teeth can develop sideways, partly erupt, or get stuck beneath the gum and bone. Wisdom teeth that have been impacted can cause infection, tooth damage, gum disease, cavities, and discomfort. The growth of tumours and cysts is the most serious condition that can arise. These issues can wreak havoc on the jaw bone and good teeth.

 

We can analyze the location of your wisdom teeth and predict potential issues with an oral exam. Our clinic strives to make your wisdom teeth removal experience as pleasant as possible. All procedures are conducted under a suitable anesthetic to enhance patient comfort. Our surgeon has industry-grade training, licensing, and expertise to treat wisdom teeth discomfort successfully.

Sports Mouthguards

No matter what your sport of choice is, we are committed as dentists to ensuring that your mouth and teeth are properly protected! Mouth injuries can sometimes compromise your ability to bite, chew and converse since they commonly lead to cracked or missing teeth. As a result, we frequently recommend using a protective mouthguard for our more active patients and athletes.
 

Mouthguards help lessen the strike's impact on the jaw and protect your mouth and teeth. Customized mouthguards made by Opal Dental provide high comfort and safety on the field, court, or ice. This is done by moulding thin plastic over a replica of your teeth and hardening it.

You can't help but smile all the time when you have straight, attractive teeth. We utilize orthodontics to shift crooked teeth into optimal positions, allowing them to function correctly. We'll realign your teeth, enhance your bite, and leave you with a beautiful, comfortable smile.
 

Opal Dental is pleased to provide Invisalign in Surrey. We make a set of translucent plastic aligner trays custom-made to suit your teeth. Change aligners every two weeks, and your teeth will gradually shift into their right positions. It's a quick and easy approach to straightening your teeth.

How Does Invisalign Work to Straighten My Teeth?

Invisalign corrects the positioning of your teeth by aligning them into the proper U-shaped arch, levelling them to the proper height, correcting your bite, and perfecting how your teeth fit together.
