If we provide treatment without determining the cause of your pain, we can create more damage than good. For example, if you have a toothache and we place a filling over the infection, your symptoms and the infection are likely to worsen over time and require an extraction. If we place a filling when a crown is your best option, your tooth may break. Proper treatment from the start will save you more time and money in the long run.

How We Determine the Proper Course of Treatment

Before we start working on a tooth, we examine it clinically and use x-ray images to determine the extent of the problem. Knowing the condition of your tooth before we begin treatment will give us a much better idea of what you require. 

Part of our dental philosophy here at Prairie Dental Care is always to provide the appropriate and best treatment to give you a healthy, comfortable smile.

Depending on your symptoms and how large or deep the cavity is, a filling is not always enough to take away the pain. We will always plan for the most appropriate treatment based on the circumstances of the tooth and outline your options so that you can choose the right treatment for your oral health and your lifestyle.
