It's time to rest easy - SEDATION DENTISTRY IS HERE!
For anxious patients, this new treatment is a miracle.
Your dental health is important and need not be neglected because you are nervous. Oral sedation dentistry is as simple as taking a pill. We also offer IV sedation, which may be ideal for your complete pain-free experience.
Imagine being able to smile with confidence and chew your food without pain. Many patients say, “Sedation dentistry has changed my life.” Once you’ve experienced sedation dentistry, you may never be afraid to go to the dentist again.
Please call today if you have any questions or are ready to begin anxiety-free dentistry.
If you're missing one or more teeth and would like to fill the gap with the most natural-looking, comfortable solution possible, you'll be interested in hearing about dental implants.
If you have healthy gums and bones but are missing one or more teeth and are looking for a natural-looking replacement, or if you currently wear dentures that are uncomfortable or don't fit as securely as you would like, please come in and ask us to explain all of the tooth replacement options available to you. We think you'll be amazed at how modern technology now allows you to have a natural looking, natural-feeling replacement tooth or teeth.
If you're one of the millions of people who have been avoiding regular dental visits due to extreme anxiety about an anticipated dental procedure, we have some great news for you. Our office is offering oral sedation. Even though you are not technically asleep during your dental visit, patients describe the experience as seeming to be asleep, which means that they don’t feel or remember the dental procedures, and also have no recollection of the sounds or smells of the dental office, both of which are top triggers for dental fear.
Imagine this… your dentist advises you that you need a filling, crown, root canal or other surgery. You’re feeling apprehensive, so, after a careful medical screening procedure to ensure that you are a good candidate for oral sedation, your appointment is booked and the smile of your dreams is achieved in one to two visits.

Dental braces (also known as orthodontic braces, or simply braces) are devices used in the orthodontic industry that help align and straighten teeth and help to position them with regard to a person’s bite, while also working to improve dental health. They are often used to correct under bites, as well as malocclusions, overbites, cross bites, open bites, deep bites, crooked teeth, and various other flaws of the teeth and jaw. Braces can be either cosmetic or structural.
Dental braces or orthodontic braces are often used in conjunction with other orthodontic appliances to help widen the palate or jaws and to otherwise assist in shaping the teeth and jaws.
Composite bonding can work wonders for your smile. Using materials that match the shade, translucency and the texture of your teeth, gaps between teeth can be closed, spots and discolorations can be eliminated, and your self-confidence can be enhanced through the improved appearance of your smile.
The dentist will match the shade of your existing teeth and then tooth-colored composite resin is applied to the tooth much like the filling procedure.
The procedure is sometimes referred to as bonding because an adhesive agent is used to actually bond the resin to the tooth structure.
The resin is hardened (cured) with a curing light and then shaped, contoured, and polished to give a cosmetic and natural appearance. Bonding is the least expensive cosmetic procedure and can be completed during a single dental visit.
Composite bonding is excellent for small defects in the teeth -- spots, chips, or gaps between teeth. For smile alterations involving an entire tooth or multiple teeth, porcelain is the material of choice.
Our practice offers a wide range of cosmetic dentistry options to provide each patient with individual dental care to achieve our goal of improving or maintaining the appearance of your smile.
Dental crowns and bridges fit over injured, discolored, or cracked teeth or fill the space resulted after dental extractions and protect the teeth from further injuries or damages helping also to the prevention of any toothaches or discomfort you may experience.
Crowns are used to restore both anterior and posterior teeth that have been broken or are at high risk of doing so due to large old fillings or fractures. There are a variety of materials used to design these reconstructions in laboratories. The crowns will look and feel close to your real teeth.
Crowns, also called caps are indicated if a significant portion of the tooth is missing. Usually, extensive decay, injury or root canal therapy, are the reasons when a crown is recommended. Crowns are usually either made of noble alloys, or porcelain. There are many different types of porcelain crowns and we will determine which type is best suited for your particular need.
During your first visit, we will prepare your tooth structure and then take an impression of the prepared tooth, make a temporary crown to place on the tooth, and send the impression to a dental laboratory to fabricate the crown. At your next visit, we will try-in the crown to ensure a good fit and then cement the crown in place. When a tooth is compromised by decay or damage, we may suggest a crown, inlay, or onlay. These restorations, made in a lab from fine dental porcelain, will blend seamlessly with your teeth, return the strength that you need for comfortable oral function, and maintain your all-white smile.
Bridges are fixed, or non-removable prosthesis constructed to replace one or more missing teeth. The teeth on both sides of the existing space are used to attach the bridge to restore functionality and esthetics. Materials used for this process are noble alloys, porcelain or porcelain fused to metal. Bridges are indicated whenever at least one tooth is missing. A bridge is composed of abutments and pontics.
Abutments are the supports for the bridge and consist of crowns placed on the teeth surrounding the empty space. The pontics are special crowns that span across the empty space and connect to the abutments. When teeth are prepared for a bridge, the abutments are prepared for crowns just as described in crowns. We will then take an impression of the prepared teeth, make a temporary bridge to place on the teeth to protect them and maintain their positions, and send the impression to a dental laboratory to fabricate the bridge. At your next visit, we will try-in the bridge to ensure a good fit and then cement the bridge in place.
Implants are indicated whenever at least one tooth is missing. If the missing space(s) is not filled, the teeth surrounding the space often drift, the opposing teeth in the other arch will erupt further into the oral cavity (hypereruption) which can change your bite, bone erosion can occur in the area, and even changes in speech might occur. The popularity of implants has increased steadily over the years.
Implants are designed to replace the root of a missing tooth and can be used to support crowns, bridges, or dentures. The root-form implant is the most common type and basically consists of three main components:
Dentures are divided into two main categories: complete dentures and partial dentures. Complete dentures are designed to replace the teeth in an entire arch when all the teeth are missing.
Partial dentures are used when there are still teeth present in the arch.
Complete and partial dentures can provide patients with a functional replacement when teeth have been lost.
Complete dentures consist of an acrylic base to imitate gum tissue, and the teeth that can be made of acrylic or porcelain. The denture base is made to closely fit the contours of the arch to ensure the denture is stable during normal oral functions such as eating, speaking, or swallowing.
Partial dentures can be made with a metal framework and teeth attached in the areas where the teeth are missing. The metal framework also has clasps or arms that extend out and fit around some of the existing teeth. The combination of the framework and the arms that wrap around some of the teeth keep the partial denture stable during normal oral functions.
There are a lot of indications for the patients wearing dentures in order to maintain the health of oral tissues. The dentist will provide all necessary information for patient education.
Digital radiography is a form of x-ray imaging, where digital X-ray sensors are used instead of traditional photographic film. Advantages include time efficiency through bypassing chemical processing and the ability to digitally transfer and enhance images. Also less radiation can be used to produce an image of similar contrast to conventional radiography.
Digital Radiography (DR) or (DX) is essentially filmless X-ray image capture. In place of X-ray film, a digital image capture device is used to record the X-ray image and make it available as a digital file that can be presented for interpretation and saved as part of the patient’s medical record. The advantages of DR over film include immediate image preview and availability, a wider dynamic range which makes it more forgiving for over- and under-exposure as well as the ability to apply special image processing techniques that enhance overall display of the image. The largest motivator for healthcare facilities to adopt DR is its potential to reduce costs associated with processing, managing and storing films. Typically there are two variants of digital image capture devices. These devices include Flat Panel detectors (FPDs), and High Density Line Scan Solid State detectors.
Dental extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons. Tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to prevent restoration is the most frequent indication for extraction of teeth. Other indications are related to impacted or problematic wisdom teeth and also to make space for orthodontic treatment in some particular cases.
Modern dentistry has allowed us to combine beauty as well as strength when filling teeth. Restorations are close to their original strength and appearance with composite resins and other modern materials. The patient comfort is always the main priority of the dental team, leading to a positive experience.
Fillings (restorations) are used to replace tooth structure that is decayed. Caries can be detected through direct observation or x-rays. Fillings are also used to repair fractured, broken, or severely worn teeth.
The dentist will proceed to cavity preparation, removing any remaining decay and shaping the final cavity. The next step will be the addition of composite-resin filling material, cured (hardened) after with a curing light. The final step will be polishing the filling to adapt it smoothly to the natural shape of the tooth.
Composite fillings are very aesthetic restorations since they are available in natural shades matching tooth color. They are also being tolerated perfectly by all the patients. In some cases cavity preparation could become very large for usual fillings and the dentist will recommend an inlay or an onlay (partial crown), restorations designed to replace more tooth structure. Those restorations are made in a dental laboratory after the dentist has taken you an impression of the preparation. The final placement of inlay or onlay will be made in a second visit at the dental office.
Fillings do not last forever so it is essential that you visit the dentist regularly for further examinations. Fillings can develop cracks or simply wear down due to chewing forces.
The dentist monitor the integrity of your fillings during regular exams and will recommend replacing a filling if a problem is detected.

If you present one or more of the following conditions, dental anesthesia can help you:
Or if you:
Benefits of Anesthesia
How does sleep dentistry work?
When you arrive in our office you may be given a small pill to take an hour prior to your dental appointment. This will make you feel relaxed and a bit drowsy.
You will be escorted into a room and covered with a thick, warm blanket. You'll be connected to monitors to watch your vital signs. After you are comfortable, an experienced clinical team will take care of your dental needs. We will deliver your medications and you will fall asleep.
Twenty minutes after your treatment is completed you can go home to finish your comfortable, relaxing day.
Will I be completely asleep?
The goal of the sedation is to provide you the most comfortable experience while receiving your dental treatment. Since you will be in a very deep relaxation state, you will not remember part or all of your appointment. You will feel that you slept through it.
What Type of Anesthesia is Used?
The type of anaesthesia used will depend upon the age and physical condition of the patient as well as the type and length of the surgery. The medications are completely individualized to each patient to ensure a pleasant and safe experience.
How Will I Feel Afterwards?
It is common to sleep much of the afternoon, eat a light evening meal, and be completely recuperated by morning. You will be discharged awake and alert from the dental office and he will contact you that evening to make sure everything is all right. Complications of any sort are unusual and mild.
Will My Benefits Cover Anesthesia Services?
Whether or not your carrier reimburses you largely depends upon policy restrictions, maximum yearly benefits, and premiums paid by your employer. Our team will make every effort to assist you in obtaining the maximum benefit allowable under your policy provisions.
What should I tell my dentist before receiving anesthesia?
Your dentist needs to know about all medications that you are taking, any allergic reactions you've had to medicines in the past, and your past and present health conditions. It's important that you answer your dentist's questions completely and voice any concerns you might have. This way your dentist will be sure to tell you everything you need to know before receiving treatment. For example, in some cases, your anesthesia treatment may require that you suspend certain medications or abstain from eating or drinking for a period of time before the treatment.
Is anesthesia in the dental office safe?
Although taking any medication involves a certain amount of risk, the drugs that produce anesthesia are entirely safe when administered by a trained anesthesia provider. When treated by our dentists you will have the opportunity to ask questions about any procedure that you are not familiar with. Ask about alternatives, training, the doctor's commitment to continuing education and the credentials of other personnel in the dental office who might be assisting with your treatment. Good communication between the dentist and the patient is the best way of insuring safety.
What can I do to ensure best results?
You will need to be accompanied to and from the office by a responsible adult who will be able to help you walk and assist you in and out of your home, the office, and an automobile. They do not have to remain in the office throughout the whole procedure. They can go and run errands and come back in time to pick you up. This person will need to stay with you for several hours at home because even though you will leave the office awake and alert, you will still be sedated and will need assistance to move about. If left alone, you could fall and injure yourself. It is important that you do not take any additional medication or drugs, prescription or otherwise, because there could be a serious reaction between your drugs and the medicines we give you.
Please follow these additional instructions to ensure your well being during and after the appointment:
After your visit, you will remember very little. Expect to go home and enjoy a good night's sleep. If you have any questions, please call our office.
Oral Surgery is the specialty of dentistry that includes the diagnosis, surgical and related treatment of diseases, injuries and defects involving both the functional and esthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the head, mouth, teeth, gums, jaws and neck.
It involves, but is not limited to: wisdom teeth removal, apicoectomy, TMJ disorder, facial trauma, corrective jaw surgery, oral pathology, dental implants, osseous tissue surgery, anesthesia and bone grafts.
Periodontal or gum disease is an infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. It is a leading cause of tooth loss in Canadian adults. Good oral hygiene and regular dental examinations are essential in prevention and early detection of gum disease – which sometimes developing without any warning signs.
The inflammation and infection of gums, ligaments, bone, and other tissues surrounding the teeth. Gingivitis (gums disease) and periodontitis (gums and bone disease) are the two main forms of periodontal disease also called gum disease or pyorrhea.
Periodontal disease is an infection of the tissues that support your teeth. Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is one of the most common infections today. More than 75% of North Americans over 35 years of age have some form of periodontal disease. Although many are infected, few know they actually have the disease. In a recent study, 8 out of 10 people surveyed believed they did not have periodontal disease, 7 out of 10 exhibited one or more symptoms.
Root canal therapy is an indispensable procedure in treatment of teeth that are severely decayed, infected, or broken. Root canal therapy can maintain your teeth life for more years, saving them from extraction.
The dentist will access the pulp chamber in the crown of the tooth and will reveal the root canals contained in the roots of the tooth. The infected nerve is removed and the canals are shaped using special files to smooth the walls and ensure no pulp tissue or infection is left. The canals are then filled with a special material that seals off the root canals.
A root canal is part of a naturally occurring space within a tooth that consists of the pulp chamber, the main canal, and more intricate anatomical branches that may connect the root canals to each other or to the surface of the root. The smaller branches are most frequently found near the root end (apex) but may be encountered anywhere along the root length.
Unfortunately, after root canal therapy the tooth often becomes brittle. To protect the tooth from fracture, it is recommended that a tooth that has undergone root canal therapy be restored with a crown.
Because of the complexity and difficulty of root canal therapy (due to multiple configurations and particularities of root canal in each individual) this treatment is always a challenge for the dentist. Sometimes is necessary to refer the patient to endodontists specialized in root canal therapy.
In-office treatment can brighten your teeth by six to ten shades. Using a special, light-activated whitening gel, this procedure is a quick and convenient way to achieve the smile you've always wanted. Tooth whitening is a procedure that can lighten the shade of your teeth and remove stain or discoloration caused by aging, certain medications, tobacco, coffee, and tea. Tooth whitening will not last forever, so the procedure will have to be repeated on a regular basis.
Tooth whitening can be done at home or in the dental office. The dentist will often take a photo of your existing tooth color to monitor your progress and compare the new lighter shade of your teeth throughout treatment.
For in-home whitening, the dentist will take an impression of your teeth and then make custom mouthpieces (trays) to fit your teeth. The dentist will give you a supply of bleaching gel (usually containing hydrogen peroxide) that is applied to the tray and then you will be instructed to wear the tray for a certain amount of time. Care should be taken to use only the prescribed amount of whitening gel as excess material can contact your gums and cause irritation.
In-office whitening often takes between 30 to 90 minutes to complete and usually requires a few visits to the dentist's office to achieve the amount of whitening required. The whitening agent (again, a gel containing hydrogen peroxide) is applied to your teeth. Some of the in-office whitening agents require special lights or heat for activation.
Both in-home and in-office bleaching can cause increased tooth sensitivity in some people. This is a normal side effect and usually subsides a few days after the whitening treatments have been completed. Whitening procedures should be avoided if you are pregnant.
Veneers are routinely used to cover teeth which are discolored, worn, chipped, or misaligned. Veneers are used for many of the same reasons as bonding but they involve a different procedure.
Veneers are thin shells of porcelain or resin that measure less than 1.5mm thickness. First, the dentist will prepare your tooth and then take an impression of the prepared tooth, possibly place a temporary filling in the space, and send the impression to a dental laboratory to have the veneers manufactured.
The veneer is then cemented into place. Although veneers are more expensive and time-consuming than bonding, they are less expensive and conserve tooth structure when compared to crowns.
Typically veneers are difficult to stain, making veneers a very popular solution for many people seeking that perfect smile. Strong and very durable, veneers last from ten to fifteen years, and come in colors that will brighten dark teeth without the worry of them changing color.

I want to tell you how much I enjoy my new dental implants. best thing I ever did! When you first spoke to me about it, I thought it was a joke and my mind immediately went to NO WAY! I was convinced it was to expensive and I was not going through such a scary process! I ended up watching the process on the tv in the waiting room. Very good advertisement because it convinced me to go with the implants - seemed like the best investment.
I remember watching you work with a mirror and I was very very impressed with how much care you gave me and the expertise you demonstrated. I don't remember feeling any pain at all.
You and you team are so professional, kind , patient and caring throughout the whole procedure, its great!
Now I have wonderful teeth (implants) that properly balance out my mouth and it makes me feel great.
You were right, it is the best investment I could have made.

My mouth is finally feeling great again.
Thank you so very much, Dr.Sandhu and Team, YOU ARE THE BEST!!!
"My new teeth have made it possible to return to eating foods I use to enjoy and also enjoying other foods prepared the way I like as opposed to them being ruined by having to prepare them soft and mushy. Even more importantly being able to chew properly makes digestion of all the foods easier and I have reduced gas and stomach pain."
"I just want to mention as well, the dentist who did the work to my mouth did an absolutely amazing job!! I don't know her name (Dr. Grewal), but, she was awesome and my mouth looks and feels fantastic!! If you could just let her know that I am super impressed and will no longer be quite so apprehensive to visit. I am so thrilled with the service I received, I'm literally suggesting strongly to my 250 cupe members that they give your office a try. Very impressed for sure!"
"I expect that many people would hesitate going down the road of implants. However after experiencing decades of loose dentures, I have finally come to enjoy firmly fitting dentures with the implant procedure. I fully recommend the process. I now have well fitting dentures with both top and bottom implants. Thank you to the team!"
"Painless and went very well. It was much better than expected!"
"Dr. Raja Sandhu and entire practice are a cohesive team that prioritizes your health, confidence, and comfort above all. During the past year, I have used Dr. Raja's expertise in order to decide which services were best for me - I decided to move forward with dental implants. The advancement of dental technology is impressive; dental implants are no longer complicated and expensive - but rather a great solution to bettering both your dental health and confidence in your smile. The procedure is fast and effective, with minimal recovery time. It works so well that you are now chewing food properly, your smile is improved, and you have the confidence to face the public again."
