It can have a significant effect on your overall health. A number of systemic diseases and conditions can also raise your potential risk for periodontitis.</p> </div> <div class="col-12 mb-0"> <p>Periodontal Medicine is a term used to describe how periodontitis impacts your general health. Periodontitis has been linked to over 50 systemic diseases and conditions like cardiovascular disease, cerebrovascular disease, diabetes, pre-term low birth weight babies, preeclampsia, respiratory infections and others including osteoporosis, cancer, rheumatoid arthritis, erectile dysfunction, Alzheimer's disease, gastrointestinal disease, prostatitis, and kidney disease. </p> <p>Periodontal Medicine is important because periodontal disease is largely preventable and in many instances readily treatable. This provides many new opportunities for preventing and improving prognosis of several systemic pathologic conditions. It’s important to know which conditions in and around the mouth contribute to, and how they contribute to, the cumulative inflammatory burden on your body. Dentistry, for a number of reasons, is the ideal profession to identify and help manage many issues that contribute to inflammation and to systemic health. </p> <p>We will assess your periodontal health and identify risk factors you may have. From this we will develop a specific home care routine for each person and a personalized schedule of maintenance to reduce and eliminate inflammation and thereby reduce your risk for systemic diseases and conditions. We refer to this a Personalized Periodontal Medicine.</p> </div> </div> </div> Fri, 22 May 2020 15:14:52 +0000 admin 46 at https://www.martindental.ca SureSmile Aligners https://www.martindental.ca/services/suresmile-aligners <span>SureSmile Aligners</span> <span><span>admin</span></span> <span><time datetime="2019-09-06T11:16:46-05:00" title="Friday, September 6, 2019 - 11:16">Fri, 09/06/2019 - 11:16</time> </span> <div><div class="row"> <div class="col-12"> <img class="suresmile" alt="SureSmile" src="/files/images/SSA_Logo3.png" /><p class="display-4 mb-2">We provide SureSmile Aligners, clear plastic aligners that are an alternative to metal braces for achieving straighter, more even teeth. SureSmile Aligners are virtually invisible while you wear them, and you can take them out when you eat or brush your teeth.</p> </div> <div class="col-12 mb-0"> <h2>How SureSmile treatment works</h2> <p>The SureSmile Aligners work in a similar way to braces – they gradually reposition your teeth into the proper alignment. The treatment takes approximately 18-24 months, during which time you’ll get a new set of aligners every two weeks. Each set of aligners is slightly different than the one before it. This is to slowly guide your teeth into their new positions.</p> <p>After SureSmile treatment you will wear a clear retainer to allow your teeth to settle into their new positions and maintain them. </p> <p>Do you want a straight and even smile? Call us today to learn more about SureSmile Aligners or to make an appointment.</p> </div> </div> </div> Fri, 06 Sep 2019 16:16:46 +0000 admin 45 at https://www.martindental.ca Teeth Whitening https://www.martindental.ca/services/teeth-whitening <span>Teeth Whitening</span> <span><span>admin</span></span> <span><time datetime="2019-09-06T11:14:46-05:00" title="Friday, September 6, 2019 - 11:14">Fri, 09/06/2019 - 11:14</time> </span> <div><div class="row"> <div class="col-12"> <p class="display-4 mb-2">You are born with perfectly white teeth, but as you grow older your teeth gradually become stained by food and drink. Professional whitening can remove this staining and give you a brilliant, white smile. We use the Philips ZOOM professional in-office and home whitening systems.</p> </div> <div class="col-12 mb-0"> <p>The in-office whitening uses a whitening gel and special lamp to whiten your teeth very quickly and safely. Many patients can get the results they want in a single appointment. In-office whitening is reliable and long-lasting.</p> <p>At-home whitening is an option for patients who want to whiten their teeth on their own time. The whitening kit consists of two plastic trays and a whitening gel – you put the gel in the trays and put the trays over your teeth. The length of treatment depends on the results you want and you can determine the shade of the whitening you get. To get a higher level of whitening you simply extend the time you use the treatment.</p> <p>Get a beautiful new smile today.

We diagnose the causes of TMD and provide a variety of treatments to bring relief.</p> <h2>TMD diagnosis and treatment</h2> <p>Diagnosis of TMD focuses on discovering the root cause of the pain. We’ll examine your overall health and stress level, your teeth and jaw structure, and whether you suffer from nighttime grinding or malocclusion (over or under-bite).</p> <p>Once we determine the cause, there are a variety of treatments we can use to provide relief from the pain. We may recommend or prescribe anti-inflammatory medication, physiotherapy, massage therapy, orthodontic treatment, or stress reduction techniques. Once the system is restored to its normal function the TMD symptoms will usually subside.</p> <p>If you are suffering from the symptoms of TMD call our office to make an appointment.</p> </div> </div> </div> Fri, 06 Sep 2019 16:09:35 +0000 admin 42 at https://www.martindental.ca Tooth Extractions https://www.martindental.ca/services/tooth-extractions <span>Tooth Extractions</span> <span><span>admin</span></span> <span><time datetime="2019-09-06T11:06:37-05:00" title="Friday, September 6, 2019 - 11:06">Fri, 09/06/2019 - 11:06</time> </span> <div><div class="row"> <div class="col-12"> <p class="display-4 mb-2">Impactions, severely decayed, a broken tooth, or periodontal disease (gum disease) can result in the need to remove a tooth.
