How Will I Know When It's Time For Wisdom Teeth Extraction?
The decision to remove or extract wisdom teeth isn't always clear. Your AXIS Dental Group Dental Professional will complete a thorough oral exam and take digital (low radiation) x-rays before offering treatment options. If extraction is recommended, the surgery will be performed in our office, under appropriate anesthesia to maximize your comfort. We also take care of other difficult and complex extractions. You're in good hands with us.

Many patients ask us about dental treatments such as Bonding & Veneers. Our friends at the Canadian Dental Association say, "Dental treatments like dental bonding and veneers are not only used to fix cavities or broken teeth but can also be used to improve the look of healthy teeth. Veneers are applied to the entire front surface of the tooth, whereas bonding is applied to a smaller portion of the tooth. Bonding and veneers make your teeth look better by changing their colour, shape, angle or spacing. Your dentist can fix teeth that are broken, chipped or cracked, that have spaces between them or that are discoloured.

A Dental Implant is a small titanium anchor that is permanently placed into your upper and/or lower jawbone to replace a missing tooth. Over time, the implant fuses to your jawbone, acting like a root, and becomes a permanent part of your mouth.
For people with multiple missing teeth, ALL-ON-4 or Overdentures may be recommended. An Overdenture is a set of replacement teeth (top or bottom) secured by dental implants. The number 4 in ALL-ON-4 relates to the number of titanium anchors holding the Overdenture in place.

The NEW ALL-ON-4 dental implant procedure is an innovative technique designed to give you an entire arch of brand new, natural looking teeth in one sitting. Rather than submerging one titanium implant for each missing tooth, the ALL-ON-4 procedure uses only 4 implants secured to the lower or upper jawbone. The implants are then used to attach a full prosthetic arch of new replacement teeth. This way, the implants preserve the structural integrity of your jawbone by minimizing gaps produced from missing teeth. You'll look and feel younger instantly.

A dental bridge is a fixed appliance placed in the mouth when one or more teeth are missing. Usually, the false teeth are anchored to the healthy abutment teeth on either side of the gap. Dental bridges can last for decades but at some point, they may require repair or replacement.

A typical denture uses your soft gum tissue for support. Over time, bone loss will occur and the denture itself will become unstable and uncomfortable. In addition to this, the jaw structure often deteriorates and denture wearers experience ongoing bone loss. Denture wearers are often forced to adopt softer diets, because they just can't eat or crunch the foods they previously enjoyed. Take apples for instance... are you eating a whole apple or applesauce?
