Bone Graft

+ More
  • A bone graft or bone augmentation may be required for patients who have a soft or thin jaw bone and are having dental implants.

  • 3 - 5 days

    Patients may need to stay longer if they are having a bone graft from the hip bone. A longer stay may also be required for cases where the sinus is affected.

  • Learn more about Bone Graft

Braces

+ More
  • Braces are used to straighten and align teeth. They can help to correct many orthodontic problems, and prevent problems further down the line. The brace works by applying continuous but gentle pressure to the teeth, which causes the teeth to slowly move. In order for the teeth to move into the desired direction, the braces need to be adjusted regularly by the orthodontist.

  • 1 - 4 days

    This time is required per trip. Patients need several trips to get the braces adjusted, unless an orthodontist at home can offer follow-up care.

    Smilepod Canada Place is in a very convenient easy to reach location. The team is very friendly and the treatment was very gentle. I have sensitive teeth and am not a fan of seeing a dentist at all, but it was completely fine. I went in for a teeth clean and am very happy with the procedure I had and with the results. Booking online is also easy and convenient. Will definitely come back.

    Friendly and efficient service. Absolute life saver during the xmas/new year period when so many places are closed. I booked here because it was the soonest emergency appointment I could get, but it was such a good experience that I'll be moving my usual dentistry there. Thank you!

    I had a dental clean - the clean itself was fantastic and the dental hygienist (Ms Wong) was great - very friendly and professional and informative.

    Very friendly, clean and comfortable practice. My hygienist, Encarni, was very warm and professional and put me at ease before doing an incredible job of cleaning my teeth. She also was able to give me some good advice regarding general dental care. I am extremely pleased with the result of my treatment and will definitely return.
