Prevention is the best medicine! We'll work with you every three to nine months to keep your teeth, gums and mouth as healthy and attractive as possible while preventing future issues from springing up.
Dr. Tao and her dental staff will closely inspect your teeth, gums, tongue, jaw and mouth to spot any signs of trouble early. We'll also chat with you about your dental health and any observations you may have had about your teeth.
Tao's Dentistry provides clients with customized tips on everything from flossing techniques to giving recommendations on the type of toothbrush that would work best for your mouth. No question is too simple! We love to educate our clients about improving dental health.
We carefully and gently clean your teeth and gumline to remove plaque, alleviate causes of gingivitis and tooth decay, and give your smile a whiter, cleaner, brighter, and healthier glow!
Nobody likes a cavity! Flouride treatments - in mild and palate-pleasing mouthwash flavours - are used to help prevent dental decay.
A habit of clenching the jaw or grinding the teeth can cause damage you'll want to avoid. Tao's Dentistry looks at the specific causes of bruxism in patients and finds solutions for individuals.
Whether you need a mouth guard to protect your teeth during sports or a nightguard to prevent clenching or grinding while you sleep, we'll make a custom-fitted mouth piece that's both comfortable and effective.
Despite preventative check-ups and good hygiene, dental issues can sometimes still occur. Whether it's cavities, a chipped tooth, or gum issues, Dr. Tao and her team will have you smiling again in no time!
Have a cavity? We'll fix it! Our white fillings are safe, mercury-free, and blend in beautifully with the rest of your teeth. We can also replace your old fractured mercury or silver fillings with this new filling alternative.
When dental decay has reached the root, a root canal may be required. It sounds like a dreaded procedure, but Dr. Tao is able to complete this for you in her clinic with her renowned gentle touch. It will be over before you know it!
Dr. Tao's eye for detail will not only ensure that crown and bridge work to fix chipped or damaged teeth is done comfortably, but that these new teeth match your existing teeth seamlessly.
A crowded mouth or a case of serious decay sometimes requires a tooth to be pulled. We'll freeze the area and handle the procedure as quickly and painlessly as possible.
If an adult tooth has fallen out or had to be removed, we can implant a permanent, custom-fitted replacement and restore your smile.
Healthy gums are just as much a part of our dental practice as healthy teeth are. We can carefully provide treatment below the gumline to combat gingivitis, tartar build-up and even an overgrowth of gum.
Let's start those good habits early with terrific dental hygiene and a healthy and positive attitude about going to the dentist! Dr. Tao and her team are especially attuned to the needs of children and work hard to make each visit a happy one. Along with Dr. Tao's calm and friendly approach, our young guests are treated to G-rated movies during their visit and their pick of a special treat at the end of their appointment.
Our dental staff will carefully and patiently inspect your child's teeth, gums, tongue, mouth and jaw to ensure the teeth that have are looking good and the teeth that are soon-to-arrive are healthy, on schedule and have the room they need.
With kids, accidents like chipped teeth can happen during recess, in gym class, or just horsing around at home. We'll fix them up quickly, painlessly and safely using the latest restorative methods available to us.
Special sealants can be placed on teeth - especially on those back molars that some kids have a tough time brushing - to prevent decay and cavities.
Occasionally a tooth needs to be removed because it's been heavily damaged or to make room for the new ones coming in. We'll gently freeze the area and remove the tooth as quickly and painlessly as possible. We'll even let you take it home for the tooth fairy!
A well-aligned smile is nice at any age! Tao's Dentistry can provide simple orthodontics appliances like retainers in our clinic and will provide referrals to trusted professionals in the area should your child require a more specialized orthodontic solution.
As we get older, we may encounter new and different dental issues regardless of how well we've brushed and flossed our teeth over the years. Tao's Dentistry provides caring dental services for people in all stages of life.
Long-term gum disease can result in loose and lost teeth. We can reverse some gum disease, even among our elders, and slow the rate at which it impacts teeth and overall health through basic dental and periodontal treatment.
Root decay occurs most frequently because gums have receded over time, exposing roots to the elements of the mouth. We'll help you prevent this from happening, but also provide treatments like root canals so that you can continue smiling for years to come.
An attractive smile can make you feel great about yourself - but sometimes a bright and well-aligned grin doesn't come naturally. Tao's Dentistry offers a number of fantastic solutions that can help you get that smile you've dreamed of.
