Family Dentistry in Vancouver
While a healthy diet, regular brushing, and flossing are key parts of great dental health, regular check-ups are a must. These allow dentists to examine your teeth, gums and mouth and to detect potential issues such as cavities, gum disease, jaw joint problems, as well as oral cancer. Early detection allows for quick treatment before things worsen. During a check-up, we can even advise you on cosmetic dentistry options to improve your smile.
We also provide gum care or periodontal treatment, which allows us to maintain the condition and health of your teeth and gums. Periodontal disease or periodontitis affects 75% of adults in North America. Periodontitis can affect your ability to bite and chew, and can sometimes even lead to loss of teeth. Regular check-ups and cleanings are essential to treat periodontal disease. Laser treatments can also be used to treat some types of periodontal problems.
As a family-friendly clinic, Asante Dental Centre dentists in Vancouver treat children as well as adults. Our young patients can be treated using lasers. In some cases, we may not even need to freeze. We can also use laughing gas when needed to make our young visitors feel more relaxed when getting treatment done.
At Asante Dental Centre, we use digital x-rays that use up to 90% less radiation than regular x-rays. Our practice also has lasers that allow us to very precisely treat teeth and gums with minimal or no freezing. We also use DIAGNOdent laser to scan your entire mouth to quickly check for cavities. Book an appointment with us today, and we’ll walk you through all of the best ways to maintain top dental health for your entire family.
