Poor oral health care has been linked to poor general health. A link has been found between poor oral health care and diabetes, obesity and heart problems such as stroke.

Receding gums can cause painful tooth sensitivity if left untreated, which is why we perform routine gum grafting procedures at Middlegate Burnaby Dentist. By transplanting healthy tissue from another part of your mouth to the root of the affected tooth, we are able to cover the spot that was exposed due to receding gums to protect it from further sensitivity and potential infection.
Oral Cancer Screening
At Middlegate Burnaby Dentist, oral cancer screenings are a part of every comprehensive oral exam and dental hygiene checkup for our valued patients. An oral cancer screening includes a visual inspection of your mouth, teeth, gums, and tongue to spot any abnormalities that could be potentially cancerous. If your dentist notices any areas of concern, they will send a sample to the lab for testing and your peace of mind.
Like a knight’s shield on the battlefield, a dental sealant is often the first line of defense against harmful plaque and tartar build-up. We apply dental sealants over molars and other teeth to protect them from harmful bacteria to prevent cavities. Dental sealants are especially beneficial for kids with developing teeth and gums, but they can also protect adult teeth that may be more susceptible to tooth decay or tartar.
Digital Dental X-Rays
Digital dental x-rays are beneficial in giving your dental team a 360-degree view of your teeth, gums, and mouth. With this innovative technology, your dentist can keep track of your oral health and ensure your teeth are developing properly. Digital dental x-rays take a proactive approach to oral healthcare, as we are able to accurately diagnose and address potential issues before they are beyond repair.
A root canal can seem like the most daunting dental procedure possible, especially because of its painful reputation, but technology has come a long way, and our dental specialists are trained to use advanced diagnostic imaging to accurately assess the severity of your root infection and come up with a treatment plan that will preserve as much of the natural tooth as possible.
Sometimes, depending on your individual oral health, teeth extraction might be the most efficient way to relieve persistent pain and discomfort. Whether you have experienced an unexpected oral trauma, serious tooth decay, impacted wisdom teeth, or any other serious dental concerns, there are plenty of reasons why a full tooth extraction might be the best treatment method for your natural smile.
You Need a Tooth Pulled. Now What?
Extracting an adult tooth is not nearly as fun as wiggling out baby teeth for the tooth fairy was as a kid. First, your dentist will visually assess the affected area and take new x-rays to see if there is an opportunity to restore the tooth, but as much as we try to preserve every patient’s natural teeth, we may remove the tooth entirely and review options for restorative dental work to fill the gap later.
