Maintain Your Oral Health With General Dentistry – New Westminster, BC

Our General Dentistry Services

The importance of good general dentistry attention for a healthy, fully functional mouth should never be overlooked, particularly in light of the discovery of the connection that exists between a person’s oral health and overall health. Poor oral hygiene can influence an individual’s well-being negatively, encouraging the development of heart disease or diabetes, chronic conditions that adversely affect an individual’s quality of life. Poor oral health and the problems it creates for the appearance and functionality of the teeth and gums erodes an individual’s self-assurance and confidence in his or her smile.

Dental Fillings To Prevent Further Tooth Damage

The Importance of Dental Fillings

Once decay breaches the enamel and enters a tooth’s inner area, it becomes necessary to remove it and fill the hole that is left behind in the tooth. Today’s fillings provide a more aesthetic appearance since the composite material can be matched to the existing shade of the patient’s tooth. Additionally, composite fillings are bonded to the tooth, more closely simulating the functionality and performance of a natural tooth, minimizing the risk of cracking or weakening the tooth further. Most dentists today avoid amalgam (silver) fillings due to the controversy surrounding them.

Dental Restorations

Restoring Tooth Functionality with Dental Restorations

Designed to reinstate the integrity of the teeth and the functionality of the bite, dental restorations span a wide selection of procedures, including dental crowns, bridges, implants, and dentures. Dental crowns are used to restore teeth that have been severely damaged by excessive decay, cracks, chips, and fractures. Bridges, dental implants, and dentures are restorations that are used to replace missing teeth. Implants and bridges are used to replace a single missing tooth or a couple of missing teeth. Dentures become necessary when several teeth or a full arch of teeth have been lost.

Surgical Root Canals

What Are Surgical Root Canals and Why Are They Needed?

Once decay has entered the roots of a tooth, it becomes necessary to undergo root canal treatment. During this process, the dentist removes the diseased pulp tissue and replaces it with a substance such as gutta percha. A post is generally inserted to help support the dental crown that is needed to protect the tooth structure. If this treatment is not successful, a surgical root canal and apicoectomy become necessary. During the apicoectomy, the dentist reaches through the gums and bone to gain access to the root tip in order to remove the infection.
