A healthy mouth requires regular dental care. Still, many people avoid regular visits to the dentist due to fear or cost.
Services We Offer Under
for improving the issues with your smile that you don’t like:
Root Canal Therapy
A root canal therapy is an endodontic procedure that involves drilling deep into the tooth's root canal system to remove infection and decay. The root and tooth are then filled to preserve the remaining tooth.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
When a wisdom tooth becomes impacted, swelling and tenderness may occur as food is trapped and stays stubbornly in the area no matter how much you try to clean it. The most effective treatment for an impacted wisdom tooth is to remove them before they give you dental pain.
A tooth filling is a dental restoration that repairs damage caused by dental decay or trauma and prolongs the life of the tooth.
Dentures can be a very cost-effective and aesthetically acceptable way to replace lost teeth, especially when several replacement teeth are required. Depending on your needs, dentures can even be created and fully customized for you before your tooth is extracted, ensuring that you never leave the dentist without a tooth.
Gum Disease Treatment
Proper periodontal care is crucial for every person to ensure long-lasting healthy teeth for smiling, speaking, and eating. If the gums are unhealthy, teeth can become painful or even wobbly or loose.
Sometimes, the only dental treatment option is to extract damaged teeth while preserving other good teeth to prevent future harm. If you experience severe pain or have chronic gum disease, you might need a tooth extraction.
Having healthy baby teeth helps in developing healthy adult teeth and jaws. Sometimes children can develop dental problems, and the friendly team at Ellen Stirling Dental is here to help if and when this occurs.
Sports injuries to the face are common and can affect adults as well as children. A well-fitted mouthguard is essential when doing contact sports to ensure that the teeth and gums are protected.

Plaque trapped in hard-to-reach spots in your mouth will solidify into tartar if you don’t have a regular, thorough cleaning at the dentist. Brushing and flossing at home are ineffective at removing tartar. The dentist will have additional equipment to remove the tartar more effectively. Tartar that is not removed from teeth over time can lead to a variety of issues, including:
- Tooth decay
- Gum disease
- Bad breath
- Receding gums
- Loose teeth
- Tooth loss
Gum diseases can be of two types:
Gingivitis: Gingivitis is a gum infection caused by bacteria that leads to inflammation of the gums. It occurs when plaque extends below the gum line. If left untreated, it can progress to periodontitis, a more severe infection.
Periodontitis: Periodontitis, often called gum disease, is a dangerous inflammation of the gums that can develop into a serious infection. This condition is caused by bacteria that have accumulated on your teeth and gums. Periodontitis, in its advanced stage, may cause bone and tooth damage.
The dentist or hygienist will clean your teeth and check for cavities and gum disease during a routine dental check-up. Depending on your dental health needs, dental x-rays or other diagnostic procedures may be required.
