As more and more studies point to a link between the health of our mouths to the health of our bodies, preventive dental care seems to be more important than ever. Some studies even show there is a connection between oral issues, such as gum disease, increase the risk of developing serious conditions such as heart disease, stroke, certain types of cancer, and Alzheimer's disease.
At Western Smiles Dental Care, Dr Peter Duke and his team provide preventive dentistry along with the other dental care to help you maintain good oral health.
It can be easy to skip preventive dental appointments as we get caught up in hectic, day-to-day schedules. Before you know it, months or years can go by since you’ve last had a dental check-up or clean. Often in these situations, people are forced to go to the dentist at some point when they have a toothache or notice they have swollen gums.
With preventive visits twice each year, dental issues can often be avoided. Routine examinations enable dentists to discover oral health issues early, while they are easy to fix and before they cause painful problems. We can also keep an eye on the health of your gums to ensure no infection is present.
Sometimes despite our best efforts, dental treatment is needed. Western Smiles Dental Care provides:
- Wisdom teeth removal
- Emergency dental services
- Tooth-coloured fillings
- Crowns and bridges
- Root canal therapy
Dr Duke enjoys treating children and has extensive experience treating them, his aim is to make sure they have fun at the dentist. He has treated some children from the time of their first dental appointment through to adulthood. He is now treating their kids too, in some cases Dr Duke is treating four generations of one family. Set your children on a positive course with the dentist by scheduling that special and important first visit when they are about three years old.
It’s great to have a healthy smile, but what if your smile doesn’t look as nice as you’d like? Often thought of as out of reach for the average patient, cosmetic dentistry treatments can now fit many different budgets. From teeth whitening to veneers, Dr Duke and his team would love to talk to you about how they can help you love your smile.
When teeth are missing or damaged, it’s important to take care of the problem. Not only might this improve the look of your smile, but it can also help ensure you can chew and speak properly. We invite you to talk to us about needed restorations, including dental crowns, bridges, dentures and implants.
