Dental Emergencies—Urgent or Not? Here’s a Guide

Illustration of tooth with stethascope | Dentist Burnaby BC

Dental emergencies happen to the best of us, and we take emergency dentistry seriously at our Metrotown dental practice. One of the most difficult things about a dental emergency is knowing whether or not they are urgent.

Here are some tips to tell the difference between urgent versus not urgent.

#1—A Knocked-Out Tooth

This is always an urgent dental issue, and time is of the essence. The sooner you get to the dentist with an avulsed tooth, the better the chance that we can save the tooth.

When a tooth is knocked-out, try not to handle it too much—especially in the root area. Keep it moist by placing it back in the socket ...

A Better Option Than Traditional Surgery for Treating Advanced Gum Disease

If you are struggling with severe periodontal disease, you might have been dreading traditional gum disease surgery. The good news is that you have another option. Laser gum surgery, also known as Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) protocol, at our Burnaby, BC dental clinic offers patients many advantages.

What It Means to Opt for LANAP Over Traditional Gum Surgery

Patients who undergo the LANAP procedure experience many advantages:

  • With lasers, there is no need to “cut” the gums, so there are no stitches after treatment. This dramatically speeds up the healing time after treatment.
  • There is minimal bleeding with laser gum surgery.
  • The heat of the laser sterilizes the gum pockets, which lessens ...

If you are facing the loss of one or more teeth, you have likely spent some time researching tooth replacement options. At our Burnaby, BC dental clinic, we offer a number of tooth replacement options, but our patients who replace missing teeth with dental implants are by far the happiest with their decision.

After they are surgically placed, it takes anywhere from four to six months before they are fully integrated and can be completed with a dental crown. Because they ...

Dental Crowns Can Improve Your Smile

dental crowns | Burnaby BC Dentist

Dental crowns are essentially tooth covers that cap a damaged tooth, restoring its size, shape, and function. For example, if you have an old, large filling in your back molar, over time this filling will begin to pull away from the tooth; it can also cause the tooth to develop a fracture. When too much of the tooth has been prepared to make room for such a large filling, there isn’t enough of the tooth structure left to replace the filling. Instead, a dental crown fits over the tooth and restores its function. Dental crowns are made to blend in seamlessly with your surrounding teeth, so it looks completely natural.

Back Molars: Do They Need to be Replaced After a Tooth Extraction

couple smiling

If you’ve lost a tooth in the back of your mouth, you might already realize this is fairly common. People lose back molars for many reasons, including tooth decay, a broken tooth, trauma, or gum disease. Because it probably doesn’t show when you smile, you may not have considered getting the tooth replaced.

But even when teeth aren’t visible after loss, it’s still important to replace them to protect the health of the rest of your mouth. At our Burnaby, BC dental clinic, ...

What to Expect During a Root Canal

Diagram of Root Canal | Burnaby BC Dentist

Most people have an innate fear of the root canal because of their bad reputation. Although root canals are usually associated with pain, it’s usually the pain of a toothache rather than the pain of the procedure itself. With modern dentistry, root canals are painless procedures that can alleviate the pain of your toothache—and it can save your tooth from needing extraction.

Here is more information on what you can expect when you come to our Burnaby, BC dental clinic for a root canal.

When Root Canals Are Needed

If you suddenly start to notice that a tooth is sensitive to hot or cold foods or beverages, and that sensitivity turns into a ...
