New Patient Exam & Cleaning
Your initial exam at Layton Lakes Dental consists of a comprehensive dental exam, assessing any and all aspects of your oral health and determining what action may be required next. During the exam, the following steps occur: teeth history, periodontal health, teeth exam, cleaning, and treatment plan.
Tooth Colored Fillings
Composite fillings are made of a unique tooth-coloured resin, specifically designed to blend in with the rest of your mouth. They are a significantly safer, more durable, and aesthetically appealing alternative to mercury amalgam fillings.
Oral Cancer Screenings
Oral cancer screenings are vital to your good health. At Layton Lakes Dental, oral cancer screening is part of your regular dental checkup. Your dentist examines your oral tissues (mouth) by looking at your lips and inside your mouth. They also check your gums carefully, and the inside of your cheeks and your tongue – both the sides and underneath.
Regular Hygiene / Teeth Cleaning Visits
Teeth cleaning is an integral part of good dental hygiene. Twice annual teeth cleaning should be a part of preventive oral healthcare. Along with brushing and flossing, professional teeth cleaning keeps your teeth healthy and your smile bright!
Accidents that damage your teeth can happen any time, day or night. It’s important to know teeth-related injuries constitutes a dental emergency and what events can wait for a visit to the dentist during regular office hours.
Ensuring healthy teeth and gums is paramount for good health among children. Early dental care establishes a relationship with dentist and children that carries forward throughout life. Dentists that understand how to interact with kids allows for an ease of care that eliminates the stress and fear among kids and makes life so much easier for parents!
Periodontal diseases are bacterial infections that affect the tissues and bone that support your teeth. A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease, and in the placement of dental implants.

Same Day Crowns (CEREC)

Over time your pearly white teeth may not be as bright as they once were. If your teeth are stained, yellowing, and you don’t present the brilliant smile you once did, perhaps professional teeth whitening is the answer.
Restorative, Surgical, Specialty Dentistry
Full & Partial Dentures
Dentures are used to help solve problems that happen when patients start to lose teeth, whether we remove them or they fall out. After removing one or more teeth, a person’s mouth will start to shift, making changes to your mouth and your face!
Missing teeth can feel uncomfortable, affect speech, ruin smiles, and cause oral health issues later in life – we can help you replace missing teeth with dental implants. An implant is an artificial tooth root placed in your jawbone to secure a replacement tooth, bridge, or denture. Dental implants feel natural and do not affect neighbouring teeth.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth, or third molars, are the last of your “big” teeth to erupt. Because our mouths no longer can accommodate the additional teeth (the human jaw is not as developed/large as it was decades in the past) in our mouths, most dentists recommend removing wisdom teeth. If you are experiencing pain, please contact Salt River Dental today.
Root Canal Therapy
A root canal is a dental treatment used to repair and save a tooth that is badly decayed or is infected. Without treatment, the tissue surrounding the tooth becomes infected and abscesses may form. Untreated inflammation or infection can be very painful, as well. Root canal therapy can save a tooth, restore full functionality, without requiring a tooth extraction.
Inlays & Onlays
Inlays and onlays are often used in place of traditional dental fillings to treat tooth decay or similar damage. While dental fillings are molded into place during a dental visit, inlays and onlays are made in a dental lab first, and then bonded to the damaged tooth by your dentist during a later appointment.
Crowns & Bridges
Replace missing or damaged teeth and enjoy a beautiful new smile with crowns and bridges!
Tooth extraction is done by a dentist or oral surgeon, and typically begins with numbing the area around the tooth or, if you’re having more than one tooth removed, general anesthetic is administered, which prevents pain throughout your body, and may put you to sleep.
