Dr. Tyson Merrill

Dr. Merrill was raised in Calgary with family roots in Southern Alberta. He began his education at Mount Royal University and continued with dental school in Melbourne, Australia. 

Right from the beginning of dental school, Dr. Merrill was most passionate about the restorative aspects of dentistry and the larger, more complicated esthetic and functional treatments. Because prosthodontics combines this specialization with surgery, another area of interest, he pursued a residency immediately following dental school.

This residency led Dr. Merrill and his family to the University of Minnesota and they are now delighted to be back to their roots and make Lethbridge home.

Dr. Merrill is married to Sarah, the love of his life and together they have five children. Outside of work, he enjoys working on cars, camping, snowboarding, mountain biking, water skiing, and spending time with family. He gets great joy out of giving people the smile they've always wanted and improving their quality of life.

Frequently Asked Questions

what is prosthodontics:

Prosthodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry focused on restoring and replacing missing or damaged teeth and oral structures. Prosthodontists are experts in creating prosthetic devices like dental implants, crowns, bridges, and dentures to improve oral function and aesthetics.

How do I know if I need prosthodontic treatment?

If you have missing teeth, damaged teeth, difficulty chewing or speaking, or issues with the appearance of your smile, you may benefit from prosthodontic treatment. A consultation with a prosthodontist can assess your dental needs and recommend appropriate solutions.

do i need a referral to book at peak prosthodontics?

No! We book many appointments through referrals from general dentists, but we welcome all patients who may benefit from prosthodontic treatment. We are happy to discuss your concerns and needs directly at your appointment.

What is the difference between crowns and bridges?

Crowns are individual caps that cover a single damaged or decayed tooth, restoring its shape, strength, and appearance. Bridges, on the other hand, replace one or more missing teeth by anchoring artificial teeth (pontics) to adjacent natural teeth or dental implants.

How long do dental crowns and bridges last?

With proper care and regular dental check-ups, dental crowns and bridges can last for many years, typically 10-15 years or longer. Good oral hygiene, avoiding excessive force on the restorations, and routine dental visits contribute to their longevity.

What is full-mouth rehabilitation?

Full-mouth rehabilitation is a comprehensive treatment approach that addresses multiple dental issues affecting the entire mouth. It may involve a combination of restorative and cosmetic procedures to restore oral health, function, and aesthetics.

What are dental implants, and how do they work?

Dental implants are artificial tooth roots made of biocompatible materials like titanium. They are surgically placed into the jawbone to support dental restorations such as crowns, bridges, or dentures. Implants fuse with the bone, providing a stable foundation for replacement teeth.

How long does it take to get dental implants?

The timeline for dental implants varies depending on individual factors such as bone health and the need for preparatory procedures like bone grafting. On average, the process can take several months, including healing periods between implant placement and restoration.

Are dental implants suitable for everyone?

While dental implants are a highly effective option for most patients, candidacy depends on factors like overall health, bone density, and oral hygiene. A thorough evaluation by a prosthodontist will determine if implants are the right choice for you.

Can I eat normally with dental implants and prosthetics?

Yes, dental implants and prosthetics are designed to function like natural teeth. Once fully healed and properly fitted, you should be able to eat a wide variety of foods comfortably. Your prosthodontist will provide guidance on care and maintenance for optimal function.

Do dentures feel natural?

Modern dentures are designed to fit comfortably and provide a natural appearance and function. Initially, it may take some time to adjust to wearing dentures, but with practice and proper care, they can feel very natural and improve your quality of life.
