Dental exams and cleanings

These are essential for detecting and preventing dental problems. During a dental exam, we will check for cavities, gum disease, and other oral health problems. We will also clean your teeth and remove plaque and tartar buildup.

Fluoride treatments

Fluoride helps to strengthen teeth and prevent cavities. It can be applied to teeth in the form of a gel, foam, or varnish.


Sealants are a thin coating that can be applied to the chewing surfaces of teeth. They help to prevent cavities by filling in the grooves and pits of teeth, where plaque and bacteria can build up.

Tooth Fillings

Fillings are used to repair cavities. They can be made of various materials, the most common used are composite resin and glass ionomer cement.

Root canals are a procedure used to treat infected or damaged teeth.

After Root canal treatment a crown is often recommended as the tooth becomes vulnerable without its life source!


Dentures are artificial teeth that can be used to replace missing teeth. They can be either removable or fixed.


Dental implants are titanium screws that are surgically placed into the jawbone. They can be used to support crowns, bridges, or dentures.

Oral Hygiene Education

We can teach you how to brush and floss your teeth properly. We can also recommend other oral hygiene products to assist with gum and tooth issues such as mouth wash, mousse and gel to assist with white spots on teeth and dental floss/water flossers.

Dietary Counselling

The team at Keys Dental can help you to develop a healthy diet that is good for your teeth and gums. We can also recommend foods and drinks that can contribute to dental problems.

Tooth Aches & Jaw Issues

Tooth aches can pop up due to stuff like dental decay or abscesses, while jaw problems can be caused by things like TMJ issues, teeth grinding, or a little accident. Getting checked out by a dentist is key to sorting these out.
