" I am passionate about dentistry. My goal is to educate and provide you with all the treatment options available to allow you to make the best decision for your oral health. Please do not hesitate to ask me questions."
( Dr. David Chung )
New Patients are always welcome to our office. You will be made comfortable and we will diligently answer any questions you may have. At your first appointment we will begin with data gathering which includes radiographs, intra oral examination, extra oral examination, and a health history. Based on your examination we will present you with a treatment plan and normally proceed with hygiene therapy. Recommendations on how often to come back for regular maintenance will also be presented.
We love seeing kids! The Canadian dental association recommends that your child’s first visit occur by 12 months of age or within 6 months of the eruption of the first tooth. The first visit will be a “happy” visit, making the child feel comfortable and welcome. We will answer any questions you may have and make recommendations to you. Regular checkups for your children will help us identify and treat problems quickly. Your child will soon learn that they can feel comfortable and that coming to the dentist will prevent problems.
Preventative Care and Hygiene
Routine preventative care and hygiene is perhaps the most important aspect of your oral health. Regular maintenance detects early signs of disease such as cavities, grinding, cancer, infections and prevents more problematic complications in the future. In addition to regular checkups, maintaining a consistent hygiene program will ensure optimal periodontal health. Your teeth are only as strong as the foundation that holds them. Gum health is often overlooked but is so important! Our goal is to maintain optimal oral health. Please do not wait until it hurts!
Unfortunately in our busy lives unforeseen things can happen! Whether it is a broken tooth, pain, infection or just a consult, we will always try our best to accommodate you and see you as soon as possible to address and treat the emergency.
Teeth that have cavities, are broken, cracked, unappealing or are missing can all benefit from restorations. We can “rebuild” your tooth with the latest materials and help with the long term prognosis and longevity. Whether it is a simple white composite filling, full ceramic crown, gold inlay or even a bridge to replace missing teeth, our goal is to give you an effective, long lasting outcome.
We can also provide you with a cosmetic treatment plan to give you the smile and confidence you deserve. Veneers, bonding, crowns, and bleaching are all examples of cosmetic dentistry. It is important however to understand that proper function and longevity is also carefully considered. We will present you with all the options and give you a full understanding before we proceed. You deserve a beautiful smile and we are here to help!
Often times, teeth that are heavily restored, broken or infected and painful will need a root canal to save it and prevent the unfortunate circumstance of an extraction. We know the word “root canal” can elicit negative emotions, but we aim to provide this treatment quickly and as pain free as possible. We use a rotary root canal system that is both fast and effective and ultimately will help save your tooth and get you out of pain.
Our office is equipped to handle all kinds of surgeries. All of our surgeries are done under local anaesthetic and with lots of TLC. Simple and complicated extractions will be handled with care. We also offer wisdom teeth extraction, soft tissue surgeries and biopsies. Post surgical care and instructions are always provided and we are always available for you.
Dental implants are fast becoming the first choice to replace missing teeth. They are long lasting, comfortable and functional. Basically a titanium screw is integrated with your jaw bone and a tooth is placed on top of that. It is highly effective and you do not have to harm or touch neighbouring teeth. Please ask us questions and inquire for more information.
