Non-Surgical Procedures

Creating a beautiful lasting smile requires an in-depth understanding of both function and aesthetics.

Our specialists will consult with you on the best treatment options to correct misaligned teeth, alleviate jaw pain and discomfort or safely brighten your smile.



It’s hard to imagine anything more appealing than a sparkling, white smile. Yet our teeth rarely stay as white as we’d like them to without a little help. Fortunately, that help is available at the dental office.

Teeth whitening done in a professional dental setting is a safe, effective way to brighten your smile. It’s also perhaps the most economical cosmetic dental procedure. Depending on the whitening method you choose, results can be dramatic: in-office whitening, for example, can lighten teeth three to eight shades in a single hour.

Professionally supervised whitening will work faster, and protect sensitive gums and tooth-root surfaces better, than over-the-counter whitening products.

Bruxism is clenching or grinding your teeth. Most people are not even aware that they are doing this.

You may be a bruxer if you experience any of the following:

  • Rhythmic contractions of the jaw muscles
  • A grinding sound at night, which may disturb the sleep of someone who shares a bedroom with you
  • A dull morning headache
  • Jaw muscles that are tight or painful – This can make it uncomfortable, even painful, to open your mouth wide, especially in the morning
  • Long-lasting pain in the face
  • Damaged teeth, broken dental fillings and injured gums
  • Painful jaw joint
  • Swelling (occasionally) on the side of your lower jaw caused by clenching. Chronic clenching exercises the jaw muscles. Like lifting weights, this makes the muscles grow larger. Once you stop clenching, the muscles will shrink and the swelling will go away.

If you experience any of these signs and symptoms call an make an appointment with one of our Prosthodontists. We will determine if you have bruxism and how best to treat it.

TMD Therapy

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder can be caused by injuries or joint disease such as arthritis, grinding your teeth, stress, ill-fitting dentures or partials or bad habits such as nail biting.

Signs of symptoms include pain and tenderness in or around the ear, the jaw joint or the muscles of the jaw, face or temples. Sometimes you may have problems opening or closing your mouth and hear a clicking or popping when you chew or yawn.

We can provide you with a thorough examination and design a plan to treat your TMD.

Some of these treatments may include relaxation techniques, a referral to a physiotherapist, occlusal splint therapy for TMJ, BOTOX and in rare cases surgery.

Splint Therapy

A splint is a removable dental appliance that covers all or most of your upper and lower teeth. There are different types of splints which we may recommend depending on your treatment plan.


For an alternative treatment to TMJ Disorders sometimes BOTOX is an option. When injected into the facial muscles affected, BOTOX relieves jaw tension, help eliminate headaches resulting from teeth grinding & stress.

The procedure can take anywhere from 10 – 30 minutes depending on the number of injections required. Only the areas injected with BOTOX will be relaxed and will not affect anywhere else in the body.

Ask your dentist if they are micro-ig Imperio Preferred
