GENERAL DENTISTRY

Dental examination

Regular dental examinations are critical to maintaining good oral health. They allow Dr. Agharazii to detect any possible oral health concerns early in order to treat them the most efficient and effective way possible. Before/during your dental exam, ensure to inform us of:

​Any new medical conditions since your last visit, including any new medications you are taking.

  • If you’re pregnant.
  • If you have any allergies.
  • Any changes you’ve noticed in your teeth, such as changes in colour, looseness, or position.
  • Any changes you’ve noticed in your gums, such as bleeding or changes in appearance.
  • Any increased sensitivity to heat, cold or sweets.
  • Any changes to your mouth’s mucus.
  • If you smoke or chew tobacco (which increases the likelihood of oral cancer).
  • If your neck or jaw muscles are tight or you’re aware of clenching or grinding your teeth.

As well as a complete medical history, Dr. Agharazii and our team may take dental x-rays and do a complete examination of your mouth and jaw area. These are some of the things Dr. Agharazii is looking for in a dental examination:

  • ​damaged, missing, or decayed teeth
  • early signs of cavities
  • condition of your gums such, as periodontal pockets, inflammation or other signs of gum disease (which can lead to tooth loss and bone loss)
  • to see how previous dental work such as root canals, fillings and crowns are holding up
  • early signs of mouth or throat cancer, such as white lesions or blocked salivary glands
  • other suspicious growths or cysts
  • position of your teeth (e.g., spacing, bite)
  • signs that you clench or grind your teeth (a treatable problem that can causeheadache or sore jaw)
  • changes on your tongue and on the roof or floor of your mouth
  • the overall health and function of your temporomandibular joint (which joins the jaw to skull), checking for signs of disorders that can cause pain or tenderness
  • the general condition of the head and neck

Early identification of oral health issues will allow for an efficient and effective treatment at a lower cost.

Nightguards

Nightguards are custom-made appliances for patients who involuntarily grind and / or clench their teeth at night (bruxism). This causes wear and tear to the teeth, increases sensitivity, headaches and jaw (temporomandibular) pain. Dr. Agharazii can notice signs of bruxism during dental examinations and will suggest a nightguard if she sees it fit. Be sure to mention any symptoms like those mentioned above during your dental visits.

Fillings

To repair cavities, Dr. Agharazii can first “freeze” the area around the decayed tooth with local anesthesia so that the procedure is painless. Thereafter, all carries will be removed and the cavity will be filled.

In most cases, you will have the choice between a metal filling (amalgam, often called “silver” restoration) or a “natural” color filling (composite resins, glass ionomer materials and dental ceramics). Both offer advantages and disadvantages. Depending on your situation, we will discuss which of the options is best and / or preferable for you.

Sensitivity

Dental sensitivity occurs when the inner layer of the tooth (dentine) is exposed. This layer contains nerve endings causing sensitivity in contact of hot, cold or sweet.

  • the dental enamel wears out due to aggressive brushing, rigid toothbrush and/or abrasive tooth paste;
  • tooth erosion caused by acidic foods;
  • recession of the gums (exposing the root of the tooth);
  • teeth grinding and clenching;
  • broken teeth, large fillings or dental caries.

The first step in treating sensitivity is to make an appointment with Dr. Agharazii to discuss your symptoms and determine the cause. Treatments vary and can be as simple as applaying a varnish. In any case, Dr. Agharazii will work with you to relieve your pain and to prevent any future tooth sensitivity.
