General dentistry services in Haldimand County
Over the past 15 years, the dentists at Jarvis Family Dental have proudly honed their craft and focused on delivering a variety of general dental services, as opposed to focusing on a single specialization.
What procedures are performed in general dentistry?
General dentistry services are classified into the following categories:
General oral health and preventative dentistry services
These are procedures that are performed to help promote proper oral care habits and prevent avoidable issues such as cavities and gingivitis from occurring.
Our general oral health and preventative dentistry services include:
- Dental cleanings, digital x-rays, early cavity detection, gum disease, dry mouth and bad breath, and oral cancer screening.
Restorative dentistry services
These are procedures that are performed to manage or repair structural problems with your teeth, as well as replace missing teeth.
Our restorative dentistry services include:
- Fillings, kids dentistry, root canal, root canals, crowns and bridges, wisdom tooth removal, and tooth extraction.
Cosmetic dentistry services
These procedures are similar to our restorative dentistry services but place more of an emphasis on providing aesthetic enhancements and making your teeth more visibly pleasing.
Our cosmetic dentistry services include:
Importance of visiting the dentist
Visiting the dentist is very important as it can help prevent dental and general health issues from occurring whether due to poor oral hygiene, damage, accidents, or other reasons. We recommend you visit your dentist at least 1 to 2 times a year (depending on your dentist’s recommendation).

Bruxism / Teeth Grinding
Are you waking up in the morning with a sore jaw? Are you unable to open wide or are experiencing a locked jaw, or a migraine headache? You may be experiencing Bruxism. Bruxism is the dental term for “grinding your teeth”.
Crowns and Bridges
A broken or damaged tooth can be restored by covering it with a crown, like a cap. This can restore aesthetic and function of the tooth and it is a very popular, traditional method used in these instances.
If you are missing one or more teeth but are unable to proceed with dental implants – dentures and partial dentures may be the best alternative solution for you.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth that is permanently affixed into a patient’s mouth. A dental implant is composed of an abutment or titanium stud which is surgically screwed directly into the jaw.
A filling is a way to restore a tooth damaged by decay or cavity, back to its normal function and shape. The dentist uses a combination of visual and tactile check and x rays to diagnose a cavity.
With our kids dental programs, we want to start children off with positive experiences at our dental clinic that will aid in their development and outlook on oral health and treatment in the future.
Laughing gas is a sweet-smelling, non-irritating, colourless gas which you can breathe and it is a popular option amongst dental professionals.
A night guard is a customized device that is attached to the teeth to be worn during sleep. It is used to provide protection to sensitive or damaged teeth, and to prevent users from grinding their teeth throughout the night.
Oral sedation is perfect for patients with reservations about going to the dentist due to anxiety, fear, or uneasiness of being around needles, dental offices or dental equipment in general.
The hollow area in the root of a tooth is called the root canal. The root canal is filled with dental pulp, tissue, blood vessels and nerves which can cause great discomfort and sensitivity if infected.
Sports Mouth Guards
A custom mouth guard fits over the upper teeth to protect the mouth from injury during sports. Mouth or sports mouth guards can prevent tooth fracture and loss, cheek and lip trauma, gum injuries, jaw fractures, among others.
During your visit to our dental office, our dentist may determine that you require a tooth to be removed for any number of reasons.
Wisdom Tooth Removal
Grown behind the back molars, wisdom teeth are the final teeth that form in the mouth. Most adults will get four of them – usually in their late teenage years or in their early 20’s – but in some cases there are more or less than that, which can be found using x-ray technology.
