Oral Cancer Screening
We Use VELscope® Technology
Because oral cancer is a rampant concern in Canada and worldwide, Dr. Geoff Shaffer provides oral cancer screenings as part of your annual dental check-up in Winnipeg. Early detection of oral cancer and other abnormalities is essential for more favourable outcomes for patients. Our office uses VELscope® technology to help us detect abnormalities and monitor your overall oral health.
VELscope® has been monumental in discovering the following oral abnormalities in patients across the globe:
Viral, fungal & bacterial infections
Inflammations (including those caused by an allergic reaction to amalgam fillings)
From bonding and fillings to teeth extractions, Dr. Geoff Shaffer’s dental office in Winnipeg provides many restorative dentistry services to help put your mind at ease. Using the latest laser dentistry techniques to peel back the gums so we can fit you with a restorative piece, we strive to make the process as painless as possible.
For those suffering from inflamed, diseased or infected tooth pulp, a root canal may be the only way to save the tooth and find relief from the pain. With today’s modern techniques, root canal treatment recipients report minimal discomfort from the procedure, but find great relief once their tooth has been treated! After all, a root canal treatment isn’t designed to cause pain, but cure it!
Dental Bonding Can Restore Discolourations
If you have chipped or cracked teeth or significant discolouration, dental bonding is an option to help you restore the aesthetics of your smile. Bonding involves moulding a putty-like resin that can be shaped, trimmed and polished to match your tooth’s natural surface. An alternative to fillings, bonding can be used to close gaps between your teeth and make your teeth appear longer. If your gums have receded, it can also be used to protect exposed roots.
Dental Fillings are Used to Fill Cavities
Dental fillings are typically used when you have a cavity or significant tooth decay. If left unfilled, cavities can be extremely painful and cause more damage in the future. There are several kinds of fillings that can be used, ranging from metal fillings to tooth-coloured fillings.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Whether you need one tooth or multiple teeth removed, we provide teeth extraction procedures for all your needs. You can count on us to strive to keep you comfortable through whatever procedure you’re having done.
