Gum recession is a process where the protective tissue that surrounds your teeth begins to pull away from your tooth, exposing its root and making it prone to infection and damage to the supporting jawbone. Northern Horizon Dental Innisfil offers gum grafting to repair the damage and prevent any further dental issues caused by gum recession.
Oral Cancer Screening
With any cancer, early detection and treatment are key. When you come to Northern Horizon Dental Innisfil, our dentists perform a full physical and visual examination of your mouth to check for any early signs of abnormalities such as oral cancer and provide you with treatment and the best chance for a cure.
Digital x-rays provide our dentists with a comprehensive view of your mouth and its surrounding structures. It allows dentists to diagnose and treat issues that are going on below the surface of your gum line. Some patients worry about radiation exposure from dental x-rays; however, these x-rays, especially digital ones, are considered very safe and emit very low levels of radiation.
Dental sealants are plastic, thin coatings that are painted over the chewing surfaces of back molars. Dental sealants are used to prevent the formation of cavities and tooth decay in back teeth. Sealants work to seal the deep fissures and grooves in patients’ back teeth to make for a smoother surface and more effective cleaning.

A comprehensive oral exam or new patient exam is an excellent start to maintaining your oral health for a lifetime. Northern Horizon Dental Innisfil offers comprehensive oral exams in Innisfil to provide our new patients with a thorough health assessment and establish a baseline for their dental health.
