Our skilled hygienists only use the most state-of-the-art tools to remove plaque and tartar buildup before polishing the teeth for a luminous finish. When you receive regular teeth cleanings you are giving your smile a fighting chance against decay!

Digital X-Rays 

Our Sackville dental office uses digital X-rays as an important diagnostic tool used to ensure we provide a complete and accurate diagnosis of your oral health. Non-invasive digital x-rays allow our team to more easily identify cavities, abscesses, bone levels, baby teeth, fillings, wisdom teeth, and even tartar buildup. 

Oral Cancer Screenings

To help our patients maintain healthy smiles and catch oral health concerns as early as possible, we offer oral cancer screenings at preventive care visits. Our team will use top technologies to screen for the early signs of oral cancer, and help you form a customized treatment plan based on your results.

Nightguards For TMJ Pain

Teeth grinding, or bruxism, at night often results in uncomfortable conditions including headaches, TMJ, and uneven tooth wear. Dr. Fitzpatrick offers custom-made night guards to help maintain your healthy smile and prevent bite-related headaches, bite dysfunction, and more. Using special orthotics, our team will help you restore your quality of sleep  headaches.

Mouthguards For Athletics

Smile protection is key if you are involved in sports of any kind! Custom-fitted athletic mouthguards are one of the best pieces of insurance against injury, concussions, and more. Our dentist customizes athletic mouthguard to each and every patient, offering simple, state-of-the-art smile protection.

Nightguards for TMJ

Temporal mandibular disorder, also known as TMD or TMJ, is often caused by excessive forces related to grinding and clenching in the night time. Patients often experience teeth grinding at night without even knowing! If our dental team notices signs of grinding or clenching when assessing your jaw, teeth, and tongue, we may recommend a custom-fitted night guard to help protect your smile against grinding, pain, and tooth wear.

Desensitizing Treatments For Sensitive Teeth
