Dental Hygiene and Gum Disease Prevention
Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease is one of the more prominent diseases in Canada.
Gum disease has been directly linked to health concerns such as heart disease and diabetes which is why we recommend regular dental check ups, dental x-rays and teeth cleanings at least every six months.
Although gum disease can happen despite your best efforts to maintain your oral health, our team at Wellspring Dental work closely with our patients to help prevent gum disease.

The dentist at Wellspring Dental in Pembroke offers dentistry options including fillings for cavities.
A filling for teeth is used because there is decay in your tooth.
Decay creates space in the tooth and that area needs to be filled to protect the tooth.
Along with decay in your teeth, you may need a filling if you have a damaged tooth or require a replacement filling.
We are also able to replace old amalgam fillings with resin tooth-coloured composite fillings.
