What is General Dentistry?

General Dentistry Montreal

It is important to protect your teeth and keep them strong through daily brushing, flossing, and regular visits to your dentist. General dentistry involves the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of a variety of dental conditions. It is also about the maintenance of your overall oral health. This comprehensive care from Dr. Slepchik may be the only care you need for your dental needs.

At our Downtown Montreal office, we offer a variety of general dentistry treatments. These include:

  • Complete Dental Exam
  • Complete Hygiene Program
  • Emergency Exams
  • Teeth Cleaning
  • Root Canal
  • Gum Treatment
  • Digital X-Rays
  • White Fillings
  • Sedation Dentistry
  • Grafts

Complete Dental Exam

When you come to our office, you will meet with one of our dental hygienists for your complete dental exam as part of your New Patient Exam.. The goal of the dental exam is for us to understand the dynamics of the muscles in your jaw, how your teeth meet and verify the health of your gums. During your exam, we will take x-rays, examine your mouth, take pictures of your teeth, and answer any questions you may have for us.

“Very welcoming staff. The hygienist deeply cared for my dental health and gave me tips on how it could be improved without having to ask for it. I’ve only been there once, but so far I’d recommend this clinic.” – Mario

Complete Hygiene Program

After you have your dental exam at our office, we will be able to see any dental problems you may have. Your hygienist will verify the health of your gums to see if you have  gum disease, which can occur at any age. For even mild cases of gum disease, you will be invited to be a part of our Complete Hygiene Program. This involves regular dental cleanings every three months at our office including flossing and brushing to treat gum disease. This program can be repeated every few years if necessary.

Emergency Exams

If you have an emergency dental issue that needs to be fixed, we will arrange to see you as soon as possible. No matter how you found us, our goal is to get you to our office and treat your problem. When you get to our office, you will explain the issue and source of pain. We will take digital x-rays and Dr. Slepchik will diagnose your problem. We will discuss treatment options and the cost with you.

“Fantastic dentist!!! I was visiting from Italy. I started experiencing intense pain in one tooth due to an abscess. I fortunately found Dr. Slepchik. He was absolutely incredible. He fit me into his tight schedule to accommodate an hour-long procedure by giving up on his lunch hour. He did a great job and because of him I was able to return home free from excruciating pain. The office staff was also extremely friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this dentist.” – Rosanna

Teeth Cleaning

During your teeth cleaning, our dental hygienist will remove any plaque or tartar from your teeth. The hygienist will use a water mist to break up the plaque and dental instruments to remove the tartar from tighter areas. Your teeth will then be polished, leaving your teeth feeling soft and clean. Most patients find cleanings painless, but if you have a lot of sensitivity we offer topical anesthetics and nitrous oxide to make your cleaning appointment more enjoyable.

Gum Treatment

If you suffer from gum disease, we offer periodontal treatment. It is a deep cleaning and scaling treatment that removes plaque from underneath the gum line. This is the easiest and simplest approach to treating gum disease. This treatment usually takes 3 to 5 visits and is a great way to prevent more aggressive treatment.

Digital X-Rays

At our office, we use digital radiography to take x-rays of your teeth. This allows us to see the x-rays immediately. The x-rays will be displayed on a monitor in front of you to view. This makes it easy to see areas of decay. Our x-rays are stored in our computer and can easily be transferred to a specialist, if necessary.

White Fillings

If you have cavities, we offer two types of white fillings: resin restorations and porcelain onlays. Resin restorations are bonded to the teeth to provide a seal between a tooth and the restoration. Dental onlays are the best option when the restoration in a posterior tooth is too large. The onlay will cover the functional parts of the tooth – like a crown, but much less invasive.

Sedation Dentistry

If you are afraid to go to the dentist or are fearful of dental procedures, Dr. Slepchik offers sedation dentistry. When you come to our office, let us know what you are worried about and we will come up with a solution. We offer noise reducing headphones for those who don’t like the sound of drilling. We also offer nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, to help you feel relaxed and happy. Lastly, we have Dental Vibe and Wand for the kindest injection. Our nervous patients love it.

“Dr Slepchik and his assistant Carmen immediately understood my fear of dentists and approached me in a friendly but professional manner. I didn’t feel any pain whatsoever during the treatment. Highly recommended!” – Serban
