Services & Technology

Light up your smile at Little Current Dental!

General Dentistry

Mindemoya Dental Centre offers our patients and their families a great dental care experience, from routine oral exams and dental hygiene appointments to less routine root canals and tooth extractions. We focus on providing preventative services that aim to protect your teeth and overall oral health now and well into the future. In our eyes, a healthy smile is a well-maintained smile!

Your oral health is our top priority.

Oral Cancer Screening

Early detection saves lives, which is why we perform visual oral cancer screenings for every patient at Little Current Dental to look for abnormalities on the mouth, lips, and tongue. If we are concerned about any findings, we will send a sample to the lab for testing to help ensure that a patient receives a diagnosis quickly. At your next appointment, ask our dentists about the signs and symptoms of oral cancer so you know when to book an exam to have your mouth checked over between regular appointments.

Keep tooth decay at bay with dental sealants.

Dental Sealants

A little dental sealant goes a long way! In fact, it can last many years, offering solid protection for the teeth well into the future. Dental sealants are a thin, clear plastic material that is easily painted onto the teeth and hardened with a special light. They keep food particles, bacteria, acid, and plaque from working their way through the tooth enamel. Let the experienced dental professionals at Little Current Dental keep your smile safe from infection and damage with the help of expertly applied dental sealants that will block cavities and tooth decay.

Convenient dental x-rays in Little Current, ON.

Dental X-Rays

At Little Current Dental, we take digital dental x-rays to examine parts of your mouth that aren’t easily visible to us! This way, we can have an in-depth look at your teeth and gums below the surface to efficiently diagnose oral health issues and provide detailed plans for your treatments, such as root canals or dental implants. Digital dental x-rays use very small doses of radiation and are easily viewed by our dental team right away, which means you’ll spend less time at your dental exam.

Keep your dental health on track in Little Current.

Oral Exams & New Patient Exams

Booking routine oral exams is the key to maintaining a healthy smile. At Little Current Dental, we offer comprehensive oral exams for returning and new patients. Our knowledgeable dentists will assess your teeth, check your gums, and take new x-rays to keep your dental health records complete up to date. Once we know more, we will explain any preventative actions you can take at home or recommend a course of treatment to stay on top of potential issues.

Your smile deserves a little TLC.

Dental Hygiene Appointments

Healthy teeth and gums must be maintained with proper dental hygiene! We recommend booking a cleaning at Little Current Dental every six months or so, and for your convenience, our friendly reception staff will happily remind you to book your visit. Our experienced dental hygienists are familiar and friendly faces that you will come to recognize quickly. They provide professional, gentle care that genuinely brings a smile to your face every time you visit us.

Rectify tooth pain with root canal treatments.

Root Canals

Although our dental team does everything we can to protect the teeth from infection, there are some cases when we need to transition from prevention to treatment. If you have an infected tooth, you will likely experience a sudden onset of severe pain in your infected tooth or gums. When this happens, be sure to call our dental clinic on Manitoulin Island right away to book an appointment for an examination and a potential root canal. We can offer root canals directly in our office, clearing out the infected area of a tooth and restoring it to its natural glory!

Teeth extractions for dental health, comfort, and longevity in Little Current.

Teeth Extractions

We may need to extract a tooth when treating advanced tooth decay, infection or extensive damage in order to protect the rest of your teeth and gums. Our highly skilled dentists will assess your condition and consider alternative treatment options. If an extraction is necessary, we will carefully plan the extraction and perform it right here in our Little Current dental office. Our dentists can also remove invasive wisdom teeth in teens and adults, making it a convenient trip and a quick, comfortable experience.

Carefully crafted dental crowns for your comfort.

Dental Crowns

A dental crown is a durable, tooth-shaped cap that fits over a damaged or discoloured tooth to strengthen and even out the look of your smile. Dental crowns mimic the look, feel, and function of your natural teeth, which is why patients at Little Current Dental appreciate the aesthetic finish of our well-constructed dental crowns. We can place dental crowns within two appointments, between which a professional dental lab will custom manufacture the crown to ensure a perfect fit and a smooth, beautiful finish.

Your dentist will apply professional-strength hydrogen peroxide gel to your teeth, leaving you with a brighter, whiter smile instantly. Your appointment will always be quick and comfortable and leave you with another reason to smile.

Little Current’s first choice for restorative dentistry.

Restorative Dentistry

At Little Current Dental, we are committed to taking care of your oral health before and after tooth damage affects you. When tooth loss, damage, or decay impacts your smile, our trusted dental professionals are equipped to restore your pearly whites to their natural beauty and normal functions with bonding, bridges, and more. Don’t let damaged teeth make you wince when you eat, speak, or smile; ask our dentists about how you can fully restore your teeth comfortably and affordably.

Even out your smile with dental bonding.

Dental Bonding

Dental bonding at Little Current Dental is a restorative procedure we recommend for patients with damaged or decaying teeth. The procedure is minimally invasive, using bonding material that’s been matched to your tooth colour to shape and build up the affected teeth. Dental bonding strengthens teeth and provides great appeal but may not last quite as long as some of our other treatment options. Ask your dentist if simple, affordable dental bonding is a suitable option for restoring your smile.

Combat cavities confidently with dental fillings.

Dental Fillings

Cavities caused by tooth decay can quickly invade the tooth pulp if untreated, causing serious infection. However, dental fillings offer a simple and effective way to shut out bacteria and smooth the tooth surface. Dental fillings offer a tried-and-true treatment to protect teeth from further damage after tooth decay sets in. At Little Current Dental, we offer composite and amalgam filling options that can cater to various dental needs, goals, and budgets.

Stop your teeth from shifting with a dental bridge.

Dental Bridges

Missing teeth can eventually cause the other teeth to start to shift if the spaces aren’t closed with restorations. One way we can close the gap on missing teeth and help you maintain full dental health is by creating dental bridges. Dental bridges at Little Current Dental are durable, cosmetically appealing and matched to your teeth, offering an effective solution that we often recommend for our patients suffering from minimal tooth loss.

Reclaim your smile with durable dentures.

Dentures

Untreated tooth loss can not only affect your self-esteem, but it can also lead to nutritional problems and other serious health issues. Full or partial dentures crafted by our specialists at Little Current Dental offer patients a restorative solution that is cosmetically appealing and long-lasting. Plus, dentures have come a long way, offering more comfort and reducing slippage like never before. If you or a loved one is in need of functional teeth, ask our dentists about options for full or partial dentures today!

Protect your teeth with a sturdy dental appliance from Little Current Dental.

Dental Guards & Dental Appliances

At Little Current Dental, we are committed to taking care of your teeth, which is why we have everything you need to protect your smile from damage that’s commonly caused by teeth grinding, jaw clenching and sports injuries. Oral guards protect your teeth, gums, jaw, and head from impacts that can have significant and long-lasting effects on your quality of life. If you need a more durable, comfortable, or effective solution, our dentists in Little Current have just what you are looking for!

Mouth guards aren’t just for athletes! Protect your teeth while you sleep.

Night Guards

If you are like many of our patients, you might be clenching your jaw or grinding your teeth at night without even realizing it. Pain, soreness, tooth damage, and other unexplained symptoms are often signs of bruxism, a condition that causes the jaw to become overactive (usually at night) Our dental specialists at Little Current Dental can custom-fit a night guard that protects your smile overnight! Tight-fitting and thinner than over-the-counter guards, these will allow you to breathe and sleep easily, all while keeping your pearly whites perfectly encased.

Keep your smile safe on the playing field with a sports mouth guard.

Sports Mouth Guards

We love a competitive spirit, but we also want your teeth to be protected while you play! The Little Current Dental team can skillfully craft a custom-fit sports mouth guard just in time for the big game. Athletes of all sports, ages, and abilities come to us to find a more comfortable and effective solution. If you are active and play sports that risk contact, falls, or injuries to the face, mouth, or head, a dentist-created sports mouth guard can offer significant protection.
