She first completed her undergraduate degree at the University of New Brunswick, having graduated First Class Honours with a degree in Biology-Chemistry in 2016. She then made the move to Halifax, where she attended Dalhousie University and graduated in the spring of 2020 with her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree. </p> <p>An admirer of the visual arts and graphic design, Dr. Weismann loves that dentistry is a unique profession that combines health sciences and hands-on skills to help restore a patient’s smile and overall oral health. She is happy to see patients of all ages and always strives to provide a positive experience to everyone under her care. </p> <p>Since returning to her hometown, Dr. Weismann has enjoyed catching up with family and friends, spending time with her dog, Lulu, and completing DIY renovation projects on her home.</p></div> Fri, 21 May 2021 13:24:02 +0000 admin 38 at https://www.midtownfredericton.ca Endodontics in Fredericton https://www.midtownfredericton.ca/services/endodontics-fredericton <span>Endodontics in Fredericton</span> <span><span>admin</span></span> <span><time datetime="2019-09-22T16:55:52-03:00" title="Sunday, September 22, 2019 - 16:55">Sun, 09/22/2019 - 16:55</time> </span> <div><p>Root canal treatment is how we save a tooth from becoming infected and possibly being lost. Learn more about this misunderstood but necessary procedure.</p> <img class="img-fluid mb-3" alt="X-ray of mouth" src="/files/images/mainimages/main-endodontics.jpg" /><h2 class="h3 mb-1">How does root canal treatment work?</h2> <p>When the enamel of a tooth is damaged, bacteria can get into the inner part of the tooth, called the pulp. The pulp is full of nerves and blood vessels, and it’s vulnerable to infection. To stop the infection and save the tooth, we use a root canal. The treatment is simple. We drill a tiny hole in the tooth, remove the pulp and clean the tooth to remove any bacteria, then seal the tooth and put a crown over it. After the root canal treatment the tooth will be safe from infection.</p> <h2 class="h3 mt-3 mb-1">Aren’t root canals painful?</h2> <p>Although they have a reputation of being painful, modern anesthetic and treatments have made root canal treatment no more painful than getting a tooth filled. Some patients find that the tooth and surrounding area is sensitive for a few days after treatment, but this soon passes.</p> <p class="mb-4">Call our office to book an examination if you’ve damaged a tooth or if you have a severe toothache.</p></div> Sun, 22 Sep 2019 19:55:52 +0000 admin 33 at https://www.midtownfredericton.ca Orthodontics & Invisalign Treatment in Fredericton https://www.midtownfredericton.ca/services/orthodontics-invisalign-treatment-fredericton <span>Orthodontics &amp; Invisalign Treatment in Fredericton</span> <span><span>admin</span></span> <span><time datetime="2019-09-22T16:53:18-03:00" title="Sunday, September 22, 2019 - 16:53">Sun, 09/22/2019 - 16:53</time> </span> <div><p>Do you need braces? Misaligned teeth can cause pain and put stress on your other teeth and your jaws.

The treatment takes around two years, depending on how far your teeth need to move.</p> <h2 class="h3 mt-3 mb-1">Invisalign Clear Aligners</h2> <p>Invisalign aligners are an alternative for patients who don’t want to wear braces. The clear aligners are almost invisible when you wear them, and you can take them out when you brush your teeth or eat a meal. Invisalign treatment takes around the same time as braces.</p> <p class="mb-4">Call us today to learn more or to book an orthodontics consultation.</p> </div> Sun, 22 Sep 2019 19:53:18 +0000 admin 32 at https://www.midtownfredericton.ca Sedation Dentistry in Fredericton https://www.midtownfredericton.ca/services/sedation-dentistry-fredericton <span>Sedation Dentistry in Fredericton</span> <span><span>admin</span></span> <span><time datetime="2018-12-11T13:25:42-04:00" title="Tuesday, December 11, 2018 - 13:25">Tue, 12/11/2018 - 13:25</time> </span> <div><p>Many Canadians experience fear and anxiety at the thought of going to the dentist.

The medication will relax you to the point where you’ll only be faintly aware of your surroundings.

They normally start to grow in your teens, although they can come later for some people. If the wisdom teeth are crooked when they grow, they can only partially erupt or they can put your other teeth at risk of impaction. We check your wisdom teeth during dental examinations, and if we see that they are crooked we’ll recommend having them extracted.</p> <img class="img-fluid mb-2" alt="Wisdom Teeth Closeup" src="/files/images/mainimages/main-wisdom.jpg" /><h2 class="h3 mt-2">Related Videos</h2> <div class="row mb-2"> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-0 mt-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/wisdom/about"></div></div> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-0 mt-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/wisdom/extraction"></div></div> </div> <h2 class="h3 mt-3 mb-1">How we extract wisdom teeth</h2> <p>Your wisdom teeth are surgically removed by your dentist or by an oral surgeon. To remove the teeth your dentist makes small incisions in your gums and removes the teeth through them. After each tooth is removed we close the incision with sutures.</p> <p class="mb-4">To book a dental examination call our office today.</p></div> Mon, 22 Oct 2018 15:57:55 +0000 admin 25 at https://www.midtownfredericton.ca Sports Guards and Night (bite) Appliances in Fredericton https://www.midtownfredericton.ca/services/sports-guards-and-night-bite-appliances-fredericton <span>Sports Guards and Night (bite) Appliances in Fredericton</span> <span><span>admin</span></span> <span><time datetime="2018-10-22T12:55:42-03:00" title="Monday, October 22, 2018 - 12:55">Mon, 10/22/2018 - 12:55</time> </span> <div><p>Your teeth are vulnerable to certain types of injury, especially injuries resulting from impacts or grinding. Custom guards and bite appliances are designed to prevent damage to your teeth, and they provide a higher level of protection than over-the-counter models.</p> <img class="img-fluid mb-2" alt="Mouth Guards" src="/files/images/mainimages/main-guard.jpg" /><h2 class="h3 mt-3 mb-1">Bite Appliances</h2> <p>Bruxism, or nighttime grinding, can put enormous pressure on your teeth and jaws. The grinding force can wear down your enamel or slowly push your teeth out of position. Bite appliances are designed to stop grinding by preventing your jaws from moving while you’re asleep.</p> <h2 class="h3 mt-3 mb-1">Sports Guards</h2> <p>Getting hit in the face by a frozen puck or a baseball is never a pleasant experience, but it can be much worse if you lose or break a tooth. Sports guards absorb and redirect the force of the impact away from your teeth, keeping them safe. Our custom guards fit over your teeth and are strong enough to keep them safe.</p> <p class="mb-4">Protect your mouth from injury.

Damage can be caused by decay or injury, and if it isn’t treated, it can lead to infections in the tooth or in your gums. Modern restorations can be coloured to match your smile almost perfectly.</p> <img class="img-fluid mb-2" alt="Dental Xray" src="/files/images/mainimages/main-restorations.jpg" /><h2 class="h3 mt-2">Related Videos</h2> <div class="row mb-2"> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-1 mt-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/decay/crown"></div></div> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-1 mt-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/decay/filling"></div></div> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-1 mt-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/decay/inlay_onlay"></div></div> </div> <h2 class="h3 mt-3 mb-1">Fillings</h2> <p>If you’ve got a cavity in one of your teeth, you’ll need a filling. We place metal amalgam or tooth-coloured fillings, depending on your individual needs. Once the tooth is filled it will be safe from decay.</p> <h2 class="h3 mt-3 mb-1">Crowns</h2> <p>We use crowns to restore teeth that can’t be restored any other way. The crown covers the whole tooth, and we use them for teeth that are badly damaged, misshapen, or so decayed that they can’t be restored with a filling. Crowns are coloured to match the rest of your teeth.</p> <h2 class="h3 mt-3 mb-1">Inlays &amp; Onlays</h2> <p>Inlays and onlays are similar to fillings but they’re made in a dental lab and cemented into your tooth. We use them if a tooth needs to be restored but it doesn’t need a crown. Onlays are special inlays that restore the biting parts of the tooth.</p> <h2 class="h3 mt-3 mb-1">Bridges</h2> <p>A bridge is one of your options if you need a replacement tooth. The bridge is an artificial tooth that is held in place by attachments to the teeth on either side of the gap left by the missing tooth. (this is where they get their name) Bridges not only restore your smile, but they keep your teeth from drifting out of position.</p> <p>If you’ve got a cavity or a damaged tooth, give us a call to make an appointment.</p> <h2 class="h3 mt-3">More Related Videos</h2> <div class="row mb-4"> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-1 mt-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/decay/root_canal"></div></div> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-1 mt-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/decay/extraction"></div></div> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-1 mt-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/decay/about"></div></div> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-1 mt-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/cusp/crown_lengthening"></div></div> </div></div> Fri, 19 Oct 2018 19:59:38 +0000 admin 19 at https://www.midtownfredericton.ca Preventative Dentistry in Fredericton https://www.midtownfredericton.ca/services/preventative-dentistry-fredericton <span>Preventative Dentistry in Fredericton</span> <span><span>admin</span></span> <span><time datetime="2018-10-19T16:58:42-03:00" title="Friday, October 19, 2018 - 16:58">Fri, 10/19/2018 - 16:58</time> </span> <div><p>We place a lot of importance on preventative dentistry. Although regular brushing and flossing is key to good dental health, it’s only half the battle.

Most dentists recommend a cleaning every six months. We may also recommend regular fluoride treatments to harden your enamel and make it resistant to cavities.</p> <h2 class="h3 mt-3 mb-1">Dental Exam</h2> <p>Every preventative dental appointment includes a thorough dental exam and oral cancer screening. The dental exam lets us spot trouble before it becomes a bigger problem so we’re looking for signs of decay, infection, or injury. We also screen you for oral cancer, a potentially lethal form of cancer that can occur in the soft tissues of your mouth and throat.</p> <p>Has it been a while since your last cleaning?
