Our Dental Services
Convenient dental x-rays in Little Current, ON.
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.

Rectify tooth pain with root canal treatments.
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.
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.
Combat cavities confidently with 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.
Reclaim your smile with durable 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!
