In general dentistry, preventative treatments can help avoid dental health problems throughout your life. The restorative procedures can restore your great-looking smile and prevent future issues like tooth decay, dental infections, and damaged teeth. Additionally, periodontal therapy eliminates gum disease and infection.

General dental treatments can help with a number of dental problems, including:

  • Tooth decay
  • Toothache
  • Dental abscess
  • Dental cavities
  • Plaque and tartar build-up
  • Impacted wisdom teeth
  • Damaged tooth
  • Gum disease
  • Teeth grinding
It is recommended that you schedule a scale and clean every six months to keep your smile healthy. If you have been affected by gum disease in the past, your dentist may recommend a scale and clean every 3 to 4 months.

Root canal therapy is usually a better option than tooth extraction because artificial teeth cannot have the exact same appearance or function as natural teeth. There is a high success rate with root canal treatment, and root canal-treated teeth generally last for many years. 

Using a bridge or implant to replace an extracted tooth may take more time in treatment and require additional procedures. Tooth extraction may cost less than root canal therapy, but root canals can keep your natural teeth intact and help you save money in the long run. In addition, healing from a tooth extraction often takes longer and involves more discomfort than root canal treatment.

Root canal therapy is generally a better option than extraction when dealing with infected tooth. However, there are exceptions, such as when the tooth has been severely damaged. Before providing a treatment recommendation, your dentist will need to examine your oral health thoroughly.

Wisdom teeth may cause the following problems:

  • Impacted wisdom teeth may cause cavities as they are challenging to keep clean.
  • Wisdom tooth pressure weakens and loosens the roots of neighbouring teeth and wears away the enamel, exposing them to cavities and bone loss.
  • When you chew, inward-facing wisdom teeth can scratch your tongue.
  • Outward-facing wisdom teeth can cause you to bite your cheeks when chewing.

There aren’t always symptoms of gum disease, but the following can be indications:

  • Puffy, swollen, or tender gums
  • Dark red gums
  • Bleeding gums when you brush or floss
  • Receding gums
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Chewing discomfort
  • Loose teeth
  • Bad breath
  • A bad taste in your mouth or pus between your gums and teeth

There are several dental treatments for bruxism:

  1. Custom-fitted Bruxism Mouth Guard: A custom mouth guard or occlusal splint can protect your teeth from grinding and clenching. They are also effective in reducing grinding sounds.
  2. Orthodontic Treatment: A clear aligner can straighten your teeth and protect them from grinding at the same time. In addition, they are suitable for reducing or eliminating jaw pain.
  3. Dental Crowns: If the surface of your teeth has been damaged by grinding or clenching, you may need a dental crown.
  • Root Canal Therapy: A single root canal session can cost anywhere between $2,000 and $3,400. A molar root canal with three canals and a crown can cost up to $4,760.
  • Dental Fillings:  The cost of a dental filling will depend on the complexity of the restorative procedure. It can range from $50 to $350. 
  • Scale & Clean: The average cost of a professional dental cleaning ranges from $200 to $400.
  • Wisdom Teeth Removal: The average cost of removing wisdom teeth is $300 to $500. There can be a cost of up to $2,000 or $3,000 per tooth if local anaesthesia, sedation, or general anaesthesia is used.
  • Tooth Extractions: The average tooth extraction cost can be anywhere from $150-$200 per tooth.
  • Gum Disease: The specific treatment your dentist may recommend will heavily depend on the severity of the infection. Treatments for gum disease can range from scaling and root planing to periodontal surgery. Periodontitis treatment costs may range from $140 to $3,000.
  • Bruxism Treatment: The cost of treatment for bruxism varies according to the type of treatment you need, such as custom mouth guards, clear aligners, and dental crowns. Bruxism treatment costs may range from $100 to $6,000.
