Reliable Dental Treatments in Surrey

Opal Dental offers a full variety of contemporary dentistry services to keep your teeth healthy and beautiful for the rest of your life. Our Surrey and Lower Mainland dentists do more than simply provide dental treatments; we also educate our patients on the need for regular oral health care to prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental health issues.
 

Here's a basic rundown of the treatments we provide. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require further information on any of our treatments.

Bruxism

Do you know that clenching or grinding teeth is a common habit among people? Although there are additional reasons for tooth grinding (technically known as bruxism), stress and anxiety are the most common ones.
 

Bruxism may be divided into two categories: nighttime grinding and daytime grinding. You may start grinding your teeth when you're angry, agitated, or deeply focused during the day. It's more of an unconscious tendency when you're sleeping. Our Surrey dentists may suggest a custom-made nightguard to stop night bruxism after thoroughly inspecting your teeth, cheeks, and gums.

Common Signs of Bruxism

The following symptoms might point to bruxism:
 

  • Jaw discomfort or stiffness

  • Teeth that are sensitive, loose, or damaged

  • Gum pain

  • Sores on the inside surfaces of your cheeks

  • A popping sound made by your jaw joint

  • Headaches in the morning

  • Teeth that have deteriorated

  • Fatigue due to lack of sleep

Bad Breath Treatment

The majority of us have had bad breath (commonly known as halitosis) at some point in our lives, and many of us find it difficult to talk about. For many people, having persistent halitosis can have a negative psychological impact, sometimes even harming their personal or professional relationships. This can still occur even with a regular, effective schedule of at-home dental care.

How To Treat Bad Breath?

To get rid of foul breath, follow the guidelines below.

  • A healthy mouth and a decent oral hygiene program are required for fresh breath. Brushing twice daily and flossing every day will help eliminate the bacteria that dwell on your teeth and tongue and produce foul breath.

  • Have your teeth professionally cleaned on a regular basis. You may reduce your risk of dental illness by visiting your Surrey dentist at least twice a year.

  • Drink plenty of water to keep your saliva running. And, if you're short on time and can't brush, give your mouth a good rinse with water, then brush as soon as possible.

What Causes Bad Breath?

The following are the most prevalent reasons for foul breath:
 

  • Oral hygiene issues

  • Cigarettes, coffee, and alcohol

  • Spicy and pungent meals

  • Mouth dryness

  • Acid reflux/gastrointestinal issues

  • Drugs

Root Canal Therapy

The removal of unhealthy or dead pulp inside the tooth is known as root canal treatment. In order to restore your tooth's natural function, the procedure concentrates on cleaning, filling, and sealing the roots of your teeth. Contact Opal Dental in Surrey if you require root canal treatment.
 

A tooth resembles a hollow tube with an open top and a closed end, called the crown. A root canal is required if the blood vessels and nerves in this hollow tube are damaged. Cleaning the tooth's interior hollow is the first step in the treatment, after which a specialized root canal filling is placed to retain the tooth in its proper position in the mouth. A damaged tooth that needs root canal therapy will eventually need to be pulled if it is not addressed (removed). If you have any more questions, please give us a call.
