Dentist South Ottawa - Dental Services

Email/Text Appointment Reminders
Our office uses an advanced communication system to send voicemails, emails, text messages, or phone calls to remind patients of their appointments.

Oral Examinations
We use the Dentrix Computer System which is a dental software that helps us to assess your oral health and also serves as an educational tool in planning for your dental requirements.


Radiographs
Our office uses digital radiographs and the Dexis system to take both your intraoral and panoramic radiographs. Both of these technologies give us a better view of your oral tissues while also reducing radiation exposure.


Intra - Oral Camera
Our intraoral camera lets you see what we see! This small wand like camera can take photos of every angle on the inside of your mouth.


Invisalign
The Invisalign tooth straightening system uses clear plastic aligners to shift your teeth into alignment. Each aligner has to be worn for two weeks and is custom-made to your teeth’s exact specifications. As a result, they allow you improve your smile’s appearance without the need of metal braces. Dr. Leith will review your goals and create a personalised treatment plan so you can achieve your perfect smile.


Scaling
Scaling removes the harmful plaque and tartar buildup from your teeth and gums.


Gum Care
Because a toothbrush can’t effectively clean between teeth, flossing is the best way to remove food debris the crevices. Thorough flossing keeps both the teeth and the gum line healthy.


Education – daily oral hygiene practices.

Sealants and Bonded Filings
White composite resin and other filling materials such as amalgam do a great job as fillings in small to medium size cavities.


Teeth Whitening
We have a few options for whitening, from take home kits to the most current methods of “Zoom” technology - ask us for more details.


Periowave
Periowave is an advanced gum therapy technology that effectively destroys the bacteria caused by periodontal disease. It uses a non-thermal laser light with a photosensitizing solution that destroys the harmful bacteria to prevent the infection from becoming worse. This treatment allows the tissues to properly heal without the risk of antibiotic resistance.


Dental Crowns
also known as "caps" are used to restore: teeth with large fillings, broken teeth, or teeth with root canals. They can be made with either porcelain, metal or a combination of both, ask us which material is best suited for your specific needs.


Dental Implants
A great way to replace a missing tooth or several teeth without affecting the other teeth. Implants are also applicable with partial or full dentures.


Porcelain Inlays/Onlays
This procedure is recommended when a cavity becomes large but the original tooth is still able to be preserved. Inlays/Onlays are durable and subtle and are a happy-medium between a filling and a crown.


Porcelain Veneers
Veneers are porcelain facings that are bonded to the tooth. They are a great way to correct small misalignments and/or crack of the teeth without orthodontics. Ask us if this would be an option for you.


VELscope Vx
The VELscope Vx is an advanced tool that helps us to discover soft tissue abnormalities in your mouth and throat. Finding and treating oral abnormalities early on is critical to winning the fight against oral cancer.
