About Our Ottawa Family Dentistry Services
Family dentists are professionals who specialize in general dentistry but possess additional training and experience working with children. Though family dentists don’t have as much training as pediatric dentists, they can address your oral health needs and the needs of your children during every phase of their lives.
Family dentistry primarily involves:
- Preventing oral damage and gum disease
- Improving oral hygiene
- Performing diagnostic and restorative procedures like dental exams and teeth whitening
Through family dentistry in Ottawa, ON, Dr. El Deeb Family Dental Care provides comprehensive procedures in a gentle, caring way. Our goal is to make all patients comfortable in our relaxed dental office and create a positive dental experience.
Dental Exams and Teeth Cleanings
Maintaining your family’s oral health requires more than brushing and flossing every day. Food particles and bacteria can easily hide in spaces around teeth and gums. Without removing oral debris, bacteria can cause infections, gum disease, and tooth decay.
We will perform a thorough dental exam and teeth cleaning for you and your family once every six months. We will check for cavities, signs of gum disease, and other abnormalities that could point to a severe problem during the exam.
Our team will also clean your teeth during your routine appointment. Unlike the brushing you do at home, our professional cleaning service will:
- Eliminate plaque, the film of bacteria that forms on teeth
- Remove tartar, the hardened plaque that is impossible to remove at home
- Polish teeth to remove stains and improve your smile
Tooth extraction is a necessary procedure to address issues without other treatment options. A patient may need to remove teeth due to infection, impaction, gum disease, overcrowding, orthodontic treatment preparation, and severe pain.
Though we strive to save every tooth, we will perform extractions if necessary. Our removal process is painless because we numb the area with a local anesthetic or use sedation methods to calm patients and prevent pain.
If we find evidence of a cavity during our examination via a visual evaluation or x-ray imaging, we will fix the problem with a dental filling. Without the procedure, the decay will worsen and potentially cause the tooth to fail, requiring an extraction.
We use high-quality tooth-colored composite resin at Dr. El Deeb Family Dental Care to fill the hole from a cavity after removing the infected pulp from inside the tooth. Our dental fillings restore the strength and appearance of a natural tooth. By filling the pit, we can prevent future decay.
