Cleanings & Prevention
Our experienced team of healthcare professionals offers a diverse range of cosmetic and restorative services, with a primary emphasis on preventive care. We are dedicated to providing top-notch preventive care and dental cleanings in Toronto, Ontario, and beyond. Our approach incorporates advanced technology such as 3D digital x-rays, intraoral and extraoral cameras, digital cavity detection, intraoral scanners, and more to identify potential issues before they escalate into major problems.
Dr. Vasant Ramlaggan leads the team at Midtown Dental, where we specialize in the following preventive care services in our Toronto, Ontario dental practice:
Professional Teeth Cleanings (Prophylaxis):
Maintaining your oral health between visits is essential. Midtown Dental Center recommends that all patients receive dental cleanings at least twice a year to prevent the onset of dental diseases and other oral health concerns. Depending on your current oral health status, our dentist may suggest deep dental cleaning and fluoride treatment to prevent gum disease and enamel erosion. At every preventive appointment, our team employs state-of-the-art dental tools to deliver efficient and comfortable care, effectively eliminating plaque buildup. After each cleaning, we polish your teeth to remove stains and discoloration.
Nightguards for TMJ Pain:
If you suffer from teeth grinding (bruxism) during sleep, it can lead to headaches, TMJ (temporomandibular joint) issues, uneven tooth wear, and chipped or fractured teeth. At Midtown Dental Centre, we custom-create nightguards to address these problems and protect your dental health. Our specialized orthotics and advanced treatments can also alleviate bite-related headaches by correcting bite function issues. If you experience symptoms like jaw clenching during sleep, jaw muscle pain or tightness, or jaw swelling, a custom-fitted mouthguard could offer the TMJ relief you need!
Mouthguards for Sports:
Engaging in sports activities requires safeguarding your smile. An athletic mouthguard is a valuable form of protection. Our mouthguards are tailored to each patient, offering superior teeth protection and additional defense against concussions. Our dental team crafts custom mouthguards that fit comfortably in your mouth.
Laser Gum Treatment:
We employ cutting-edge soft tissue lasers to combat gum disease symptoms. This advanced technology provides precise and controlled treatment, reducing discomfort compared to traditional or surgical gum procedures. At Midtown Dental Centre, we offer a Soft Tissue Management (STM) program, which includes tissue debridement using a piezo scaler—a quick, painless, and versatile FDA-cleared system for both hard and soft tissue treatments in the mouth. Our doctors utilize this laser for cavity preparation, a wide range of gum treatments, and complex oral surgeries.
OraVital®: The OraVital® System delivers accurate diagnoses and effective treatment for oral infections leading to dental caries, halitosis, peri-implantitis, and periodontal disease. We utilize this advanced system to create a personalized regimen of dentist-prescribed oral rinses with antimicrobial, antibiotic, and antifungal properties. The OraVital® System aims to control gum disease in up to 90% of dental cases within four weeks.
