What We Can Do For You
Life-Saving Oral Cancer Screenings in Ottawa
Oral Cancer Screening
An early cancer diagnosis can be lifesaving, so we provide them at every check-up appointment. We also encourage patients to book an oral cancer screening at the sight of any persistent abnormalities on the mouth, lips, gums, cheeks or tongue. Symptoms of oral cancer can include red patches and sores, lumps, or leukoplakia (white patches).
Protecting Your Smile with Dental Sealants
The right dental sealant can prevent harmful cavities and tooth decay from wreaking havoc in your mouth. Our team at Dr. Pettigrew & Associates offers dental sealants for our patients in Westboro Village to protect their teeth and increase the longevity of a healthy, strong smile.
Convenient Dental X-rays in Westboro Village
Digital Dental X-Rays
A comprehensive dental x-ray allows us to get a better look at parts of your mouth that aren’t visible to the naked eye. These detailed medical images are included in dental exams as they play an important role in diagnosing oral health issues quickly and efficiently. Our dental office is fully equipped with x-ray technology that can image multiple areas of the mouth, face, and head. Click here to view a radiation exposure comparison chart.

Rediscover Your Smile with Custom-Designed Dental Bridges
Missing teeth can affect your self-confidence right away, but over time, they can also cause your teeth to shift. Dental bridges offer a durable and aesthetically appealing solution, allowing us to fill in gaps with an exact match to your teeth. Many of our patients with minimal tooth loss choose dental bridges to maintain healthy and straight teeth.
Expertly Designed Dental Implants in Ottawa
Dental implants offer a permanent solution for tooth loss and are a popular treatment option at Dr. Pettigrew & Associates. Those who have suffered from tooth extractions or are missing adult teeth can restore their smile confidently with permanent prosthetic teeth, seamlessly matched to the shade of their natural teeth. We can perform dental implant surgery right here in our dental office—there’s no need to wait months to see a specialist!
Effective Inlays and Onlays at Our Westboro Village Dental Clinic
Inlays & Onlays
The topmost surfaces of your teeth can become damaged or compromised over time. If you are experiencing this issue, we might suggest inlays or onlays to effectively restore the chewing surface of your teeth, improving both the function and appearance, but without the need for a full crown.
Oral Sedation for Complex Dental Procedures
Oral sedation refers to an oral pill prescribed in advance, which we will typically instruct you to take about an hour before your dental procedure. The effects of oral sedation are stronger and longer-lasting than nitrous oxide sedation, so patients will need to arrange a ride home from the dental office after an oral sedation dentistry procedure.
Keep Your Smile Straight with a Custom-Fitted Retainer
Once you’ve spent so much time straightening your smile with Invisalign or traditional braces, it’s very important to wear a retainer as recommended by your orthodontist or our experienced dental team. At Dr. Pettigrew & Associates, we can fit you for a comfortable retainer to help make it easy to maintain the configuration of your teeth for many years.
