Repair your Smile
CEREC®, which stands for Ceramic Reconstruction, is used to create metal free restorations for bridges, dental implants, inlays, onlays, dental veneers, and dental crowns. Same Day Crowns are the convenient way to restore your smile in a single dental visit.
A gum graft is necessary if you have gum disease. Severe Periodontal Disease, if left untreated will damage gums, which could lead to tooth loss. Ocean Front Dental recommends the pinhole surgery for periodontal disease as it is much less invasive with very little, if any, downtime.

TMJ Disorder Treatment
TMD is known as Temporomandibular Disorder, which is defined as pain and dysfunction of the muscles that move the jaw and the jaw joint itself. This means that TMD can be either muscle and/or joint-related. Most of the time, this is a muscle issue, which is fantastic because it can be treated by Dr. Seddon through conservative dental procedures based on how the teeth come together, also known as occlusion.
Treatment involves a comprehensive assessment of the medical history, dental history, joints, muscles, jaw movements, and teeth. Once Dr. Seddon completes the clinical exam, you may be asked to wear an acrylic deprogramming device for a few weeks to help determine your functional risk and diagnosis.
Dr. Seddon is a member of the Canadian Academy of Restorative Dentistry, the American Equilibration Society. He spent years with the Vancouver-based FOCUS study club and is now a mentor with the Kois Institute in Seattle, Washington. If you are suffering from headaches, joint pain, clicks, locking, popping, or biting issues, do not hesitate to contact our office for a comprehensive assessment.Contact Us
