Affordable Dentistry Services for All Ages

Tyhee Dental has all the affordable dentistry services, as well as cosmetic dentistry options, for every person in your family. Some of our most-requested services include:


This is typically known as a checkup where cleanings take place. In most cases, we will want to see you twice per year to get preventive dental maintenance. This helps us see what is happening in your mouth, and enables us to diagnose any potential problems before they become too big.
Extractions. Although we always recommend keeping your natural teeth if you can, extractions are sometimes necessary. In these cases, we perform extractions in-house. You can choose comfortable sedation dentistry options if desired to make the procedure even more relaxed.
Root Canals. A root canal is a procedure where the inside of the tooth is cleaned out due to damage that has occurred at the nerve and tooth pulp level. Root canals are actually not painful, and are expertly handled by Dr. Dan Kinkela and the rest of the Tyhee Dental team.
Even if your bite is only subtly misaligned, you can wind up feeling uncomfortable every time you move your jaw, such as when you bite down on food during chewing. Occlusal adjustments at our office help reduce the stress on your jaw and teeth, and give you a more perfect bite.
Myofunctional disorders occur when the tongue does not move precisely during speaking and chewing, as well as at rest. In this case, myofunctional therapy can assist in treating this condition.
Accidents and unexpected occurrences happen that require emergency dentistry. As your dentist in Smithers, BC, we are available 24/7 for emergency needs.
We love working with children at Tyhee Dental! Our entire staff is passionate about developing a good rapport with our younger patients, and teaching them how to properly care for their teeth. If you have a child who requires dental services, we want to meet him or her!
  1. Bite firmly on wet gauze for 5 minutes, change if necessary every 5-10 minutes. Keep gauze in until home and you are resting comfortably. Bleeding: it is normal for the saliva to be streaked with blood for a day or two. A moistened tea bag may be used instead of gauze for moderate bleeding. Do not leave gauze in overnight.
  2. Keep fingers and tongue away from the area.
  3. Avoid smoking and sucking through straws for 4 days.
  4. Do not rinse your mouth for 4 days. After that it is permissible to gently rinse with salt water a few times a day. You can brush but if you don’t want to swallow toothpaste don’t use it.
  5. If you have any discomfort take whatever you normally take for a headache. If necessary, the doctor will prescribe a stronger medication for you.
  6. Swelling and discoloration is to be expected in certain areas and usually reaches its maximum about two days after surgery. It will disappear gradually and is no cause for concern. If desired, ice pads may be applied for the first 4-6 hours alternating 20 minutes on, 20 minutes off.
  7. Sutures, if required are removed without discomfort after about 5 days. An appointment will be made for you. Sutures that dissolve might be used.
  8. Do not hesitate to call us at 250-847-4577
Fountain of Youth Dentures is a ground breaking technique for dentures fitted to your specific facial structure. They are designed to work with your muscles and are positioned for best function in order to provide maximum facial support, stability and greater aesthetics. Your face will look younger and appear fuller. You will see plumper lips, fuller chins, less wrinkles, noses that appear smaller and some lessening of the “turkey jowl” effect.

Of course, we also provide cosmetic dentistry services as well.
