Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer screenings can save your smile— and your life!
Did you know that over 5,400 Canadians are diagnosed with oral cancer every year? At Northridge Dental, we offer complimentary oral cancer screenings so we can assess your mouth for any abnormalities. Our preliminary oral cancer screening process is simple, non-invasive, and very quick. Expect us to ask you a few questions about your health and habits, examine the soft tissue in your mouth, and gently feel your face and neck for any irregularities.
Protect your teeth from cavities with dental sealants at North Ridge Dental.
When your teeth start to decay and cavities form, the inner tooth pulp can become vulnerable to serious infection. Preventing cavities from occurring is our top priority. That’s why our experienced dentists in Nanaimo will often recommend a dental sealant to effectively stop harmful tooth decay in its tracks. We usually provide dental sealants for children after their permanent teeth have come in, but we can also provide sealants for teens and adults. Ask us more about preventative care and how dental sealants can make brushing at home more effective for you or your child.
Digital Dental X-Rays
Take advantage of digital dental x-rays in Nanaimo, BC.
At Northridge Dental, we pride ourselves on bringing innovative technology to our patients. Our digital dental x-rays offer clear images that we can view on a screen within seconds. This helps us make accurate and efficient diagnoses, even when there are issues below the surface of your mouth. Our dentists will keep and compare your dental x-rays to ensure we have a full view of your oral health at every appointment.
Preserve your natural teeth with root canals at North Ridge Dental.
When severe tooth decay reaches the tooth pulp, serious infection can occur. Left untreated, it may be necessary to remove a tooth entirely. However, a simple root canal procedure can help clear out the infected tissue without destroying your natural tooth structure. Our dentists are trained in delivering root canal procedures to help protect and preserve your teeth, relieve pain, and get you back to your usual routine quickly.
Trust Northridge Dental with your tooth extraction.
Sometimes the most effective way to preserve your dental health is having a tooth pulled, whether it is severely infected, loose, or causing pain. It may seem daunting, but our experienced Nanaimo dentists perform teeth extractions safely and effectively all the time! We start with thoughtful and detailed treatment planning that looks at all of the structures of your tooth and the surrounding teeth. This ensures we can provide a comfortable extraction and set you up for effective healing. Be sure to ask us about dental restorations to replace your missing tooth, including dental implants and dental bridges.
