General dentistry keeps Burlington smiles healthy
Your general dentist is the gatekeeper to your oral health and whole-body wellness. A general dentist provides initial diagnosis, discusses treatment options, performs procedures, and offers referral to a specialist when necessary. (Patients at Mount Royal Dental, rarely need to be referred out because of our broad range of services and our onsite specialists.) Our general dentistry keeps Burlington area patients of all ages smiling.
Professional teeth cleaning – Our hygienists use special instruments to clean plaque, bits of food debris, and stains from spots you can’t see or reach when you brush and floss at home. Your smile gleams, teeth feel smooth as silk, and your breath is fresh. Regular examinations give the dentist an opportunity to catch potential dental problems early, when they can be treated most easily, effectively, and economically.
Dental sealants – Routine checkups are the perfect time to consider dental sealants. This clear liquid is brushed onto the chewing surfaces of molars. It flows into tiny pits and fissures in enamel to keep cavity-causing bacteria out. Sealants reduce risk of tooth decay in children by up to 70 percent, and adults (especially tobacco users) also benefit. Sealant treatment is quick and painless, and lasts for years.
Perio-maintenance and active therapy – Gum disease can have grave consequences for your teeth and your health. It is linked to coronary heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, bacterial pneumonia, pregnancy complications, and other illnesses. Acknowledging the mouth-body connection gives us a fundamental responsibility to help you prevent gum disease and to control periodontal inflammation and infection with a comprehensive treatment plan.
Oral problems can’t always be avoided. You can count on gentle care from our team for dental restorations including:
- Tooth-colored fillings
- Dental implants
- Oral appliances to alleviate snoring and sleep apnea

The CPAP is not a user-friendly device because of its size, the mask and unattractive look.
The oral sleep apnea appliance is similar to a night guard and brings the lower jaw forward, opening up the airway.
