My Smile Health Dental
Health Focused • Holistic Approach
At My Smile Health Centre, our approach is different because we do not simply treat your symptoms, we collaborate with you to maintain your healthy smile by providing preventive services and addressing the root cause of any existing problems. Our team will work with you to educate you on the connection between your dental health and your overall health. The following services can help maintain your oral health and determine the cause of any issues you are experiencing.
In addition to routine cleanings, we offer several cutting edge hygiene services and products to keep your mouth as healthy as possible. We offer both in-office services, as well as products and treatments that can be used easily at home.
Perio Protect Trays are a minimally invasive treatment for inflammatory gum disease and bone loss. This treatment works by placing a small amount of prescription medicine gel in a special tray, which you then wear in your mouth for 15 minutes 1-3 times daily. Perio Protect® Trays treat gum disease by holding the medication below the gum line and in the pockets around the teeth, where brushing and flossing cannot reach.
There are unlimited types and numbers of bacteria present in everyone’s mouth depending on their genetic blueprint. Salivary DNA testing can help us determine the bacterial cause of your periodontal disease and cavity risk, which then helps us create a better targeted treatment plan that gives you the best possible preventive results. The process of saliva testing is very simple. We collect a small sample of your saliva and then send it to a lab for analysis to determine which bacteria is present.
Our practice carries many products from Oral Science, a brand that creates toothpastes, rinses lozenges and gels for specific oral health concerns, such as cavities, oral lesions, periodontitis, dry mouth and tooth sensitivity. We carry the following products in our office, and our providers can make a recommendation about which one is right for you.
Most toothpastes are designed to get rid of bad bacteria, but while doing this, they can also temporarily remove the good kind of bacteria that your mouth needs to be healthy. An oral probiotic is a daily supplement that you can take to maintain this good bacteria. Our office carries Usana Oral Probiotics, which are taken at night after you brush your teeth, and creates a protective barrier to preserve the health of your teeth and gums during the night while you sleep.
As Complete Oral Healthcare providers, we realize the importance of the annual examination of the teeth and, just as crucial, the remainder of the oral cavity. The VELscope Vx is a patient-friendly adjunctive screening device that utilizes tissue fluorescence technology to help our team members see from bacterial infections to oral cancer and pre-cancer. The VELscope Vx will be incorporated into our annual comprehensive oral screenings.
What is Orofacial Myofunctional Therapy?
An exercise-based therapy that targets and trains proper breathing, speaking, chewing, swallowing and oral rest posture. The therapy consists of 20-60 minutes of daily exercises for a duration of approximately 10 months. With commitment and consistency, orofacial myofunctional therapy can improve habits for people of all ages. Therapy can result in gentle and quiet nasal breathing; proper growth of the face and jaws; elimination of messy eating; reduction of an overactive gag reflex; reduction of snoring and sleep apnea symptoms; elimination of an open bite and relapse after braces; elimination of mouth breathing and bad breath; reduction in the risk for cavities and gum disease; and reduction of jaw pain due to muscle imbalance.
