General Dentistry at Bridge Rd Dental

As a family practice, we offer a full menu of general dentistry services for all ages. Whether you’re due for a checkup or have an emergency that requires same-day attention, we’re always happy to help. Some of the services we offer include:

Checkups and Cleans

Six-monthly checkups help us evaluate your oral health for changes over time. We can intercept issues while they’re smaller and less invasive. Enjoy a gentle cleaning and fluoride treatment to keep your teeth strong while reducing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

Children’s Dentistry

A great dental care experience during childhood helps reduce the risk of dental anxiety and serious oral health issues later on in life. We provide a welcoming environment where your child can access everything from checkups and mouthguards to early orthographic treatment and fluoride.

Emergency Dentistry

Dental emergencies typically require same-day care. We’re here to help you get out of pain as quickly as possible. New patients are always welcome. If you have a toothache or broken tooth, contact us straightaway. The sooner you can get to our office, the better.

Wisdom Tooth Extraction

Painful or impacted wisdom teeth can be gently removed right here in our office. Avoid the referral to a third-party surgeon or more expensive procedures by completing your procedure with our experienced family dentist. Wisdom teeth can lead to issues like swelling, pain or even damage the healthy teeth next to them. A simple exam at our office can give you the answers you need.


We provide a wide variety of orthodontic treatments, including conventional braces, SmileTru clear aligners and removable Inman Aligner teeth straightening systems. Enjoy straighter teeth in as few as three months! There’s an option for every age. Early functional orthopaedic therapy is one of our primary focuses, allowing us to adapt your child’s natural growth patterns in a way that promotes healthy jaw formation and tooth alignment as they grow.

Gum Care/Periodontics

Periodontal disease can cause chronic issues like halitosis and tooth mobility. Our therapeutic soft tissue treatments and deep cleans help you combat gum infections at their source. We perform a gum disease screening at every checkup to pinpoint the signs early on. Your smile will thank you!

Occlusal Splint Therapy

Are you someone who constantly clenches and grinds their teeth? Overactive teeth clenching can lead to premature wear, broken teeth and chronic TMJ pain. Our custom occlusal splints train your muscles to relax while preventing additional damage to your teeth.

Custom Mouthguards

Wearing a protective sports mouthguard can lower your favourite athlete’s risk of knocked-out or chipped teeth as well as concussions. The key is to work with a dentist to have it professionally fitted for optimal protection and comfort.

Pain Management for Nervous Patients

Don’t let dental anxiety get between you and the oral care you need. If you feel nervous about routine dental visits, we can help. Dr Shanthini Rao (Dentist) will communicate with you closely and work at your individual pace. There’s no need to worry about being pressed to get a treatment you’re not comfortable with.
