Our Patient Google Reviews
Don't take our word for it, read our genuine patient Google reviews about our dental services in Mississauga and find out the quality of dental work that you can expect from Rockwest Dental.
When a tooth breaks or tooth pain becomes unbearable you may require urgent dental care outside of regular office hours. Rockwest Dental offers emergency dental services for broken, chipped or dislodged teeth, crowns or fillings, persistent gum bleeding and toothaches. Our knowledgeable dentists are able to accommodate any dental emergencies promptly.
Wisdom tooth emergence can cause pain and disrupt your existing molars. Our oral surgeons have the expertise to ensure your wisdom tooth removal process is as painless as possible through sedation dentistry. We will also provide follow-up care to ensure the wisdom tooth removal and recovery has been successful.
When a tooth is damaged beyond repair, it will be extracted from its socket. The dentist will take an X-Ray of your mouth to evaluate how to safely remove the tooth. We will provide you with aftercare instructions and options for your tooth extraction.
One of the best tooth replacement options is a dental implant. Our oral surgeon will use artificial teeth that look, feel and function like natural teeth. You will be put under local anesthetic while the oral surgeon places the implant and you’ll wake up with a new smile!
Bridges and crowns are a fantastic, permanent solution to missing teeth. Crowns are used to cover damaged teeth or to replace a tooth in an implant. A bridge is used to replace several teeth, prevent bad bites and strengthen the remaining teeth. We will help you decide the best solution for you.
The Canadian Dental Association recommends children have their first dental assessment within six months of their first tooth emerging. We offer a safe and welcoming environment for all of our patients regardless of age. A friendly and gentle dentist will clean your child’s teeth and assess any risk of tooth decay or future issues.
At Rockwest Dental, we offer sedation dentistry to help people who are wary of dental appointments. We would never want our patients to skip important appointments because of anxiety, so oral sedation is essential to our practice. It is a safe and 100% painless procedure!
Rockwest Dental’s oral surgery services combine advanced techniques with state-of-the-art technology. Our oral surgeons will walk you through the procedure step-by-step from the initial consultation to aftercare to ensure you are informed, feel comfortable and have a full and painless recovery.
If the root of your tooth is infected or inflamed, our dentist will perform a root canal. This procedure involves anesthetizing the area, removing the infected or decayed nerve and pulp inside the tooth, then cleaning and sealing it. Patients will feel relief from pain and discomfort almost immediately.
At Rockwest, we emphasize prevention. Regular checkups and excellent daily oral hygiene are the best defense against serious problems with your teeth and gums. Education is a vital part of preventive care. The goal of helping you maintain excellent oral health for life.
