Our talented general dentists at our Vancouver clinic specialize in dental hygiene, root canals, wisdom tooth extraction, and effective teeth whitening treatments that keep your teeth and gums looking healthy, happy, and protected, thanks to preventative, general dentistry treatments.
Root Canals in Vancouver
Untreated tooth decay can spread and deteriorate right down to the tooth’s inner pulp, which can cause a painful infection and potentially tooth loss. When the infection is this severe, your dentist may recommend a root canal to save the tooth and alleviate your pain.
How Root Canals Work
The tooth pulp is extremely sensitive because it protects your tooth’s blood vessels and nerves with a thin layer of soft tissue. If you have an infection that infiltrates this fragile tooth pulp, your dentist will perform a root canal to save it from permanent damage or total tooth loss. To do this, they will scrape away the infected parts of the pulp in an effort to preserve the tooth’s outer shell and stop the infection in its tracks.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions in Vancouver
Did you know that your wisdom teeth can wreak havoc on your mouth if they aren’t removed on time? You might’ve heard that some people can go their whole lives without wisdom teeth surgery, but more often than not, patients end up needing at least one of their wisdom teeth surgically removed before it causes the rest of their teeth to crowd.
When You Might Need a Wisdom Tooth Extraction
When you come to Atlantis Dental Cambie for a general dental checkup, we will take x-rays and digital images to find out if you have any wisdom teeth and whether or not they are at risk of causing overcrowding in your mouth if left to grow. Once your dentist has determined how many wisdom teeth you have and if any are growing in a compromising way, they will likely schedule an outpatient procedure to have the tooth (or teeth) removed to prevent pain and infection.
Dental Hygiene Appointments in Vancouver
At Atlantis Dental Cambie, we are committed to keeping your smile shining bright with comprehensive dental hygiene treatments! Our experienced dental hygienists will give your teeth and gums a thorough cleaning, polishing the surface of your teeth, removing stubborn plaque and bacterial build-up from the gum line, and flagging any visible abnormalities for your dentist to address.
Why Proper Dental Hygiene is Important
Maintaining a proper dental hygiene routine is an easy and effective way to prevent oral health issues and harmful infections. We recommend booking a routine dental hygiene appointment at least once a year at your trusted dental clinic on Cambie so our dedicated dental hygienists can keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape while keeping track of any potential oral health concerns that may arise.
Effective Teeth Whitening in Vancouver
No matter how well you keep up with your daily tooth brushing and flossing routine, it is common for teeth to lose their sparkle over time. Sipping your regular morning coffee, enjoying a little red wine at happy hour, smoking cigarettes to unwind, and even the inevitable aging process can cause darkening and discolouration.
