(Health-NewsWire.Net, October 17, 2015 ) Port Coquitlam, BC -- Oxford Family Dental, the renowned clinic for dental services, has announced the availability of their general dentistry services in Coquitlam. This is another step towards the clinic's goal to provide the best dental care for Tri City residents in the area.
"Our Coquitlam general dentistry practice is to provide services that help prevent dental issues from occurring or from getting worse," explains Dr. Gurinder Gerry Chahal, who heads the team at Oxford Family Dental. "We encourage our patients to visit our dental clinic at least twice a year, so that they can receive additional dental care they can't get on their own."
At Oxford Family Dental, Coquitlam dental patients receive a professional teeth cleaning service that gets rid of hard tartar that cannot be removed by normal brushing and flossing. The general dentistry team also monitors the health of each tooth and of the gums to look for various signs of issues that may come up later on.
"We check the gums thoroughly for signs of gingivitis and gum disease, which will affect the health of the teeth as well," says Dr. Chahal. "We also look at the teeth thoroughly so that we can restore any damage brought on by tooth decay and by injury."
At the Oxford Family Dental clinic, patients receive mercury-free composite fillings to avoid any possible hazard. The tooth may also be preserved with root canal treatment, when the dentist removes the infected pulp and then seals the area properly so that further infections won't return.
"It's always best to save the tooth whenever possible, which is why we regard tooth extraction as the final option," admits Dr. Chahal. "But we also have several options for patients who need replacements for missing teeth."
The Oxford Family Dental clinic offers dental bridges to help replace the missing teeth. Other options are partial and complete dentures to enable patients to chew their food properly and to help let them smile more confidently.
"Our focus is not just on the function of the replacement teeth, but on the appearance as well," says Dr. Chahal. "That's why we offer natural-looking dentures as part of our general dentistry services."
The clinic also offers dental implants as well. This service involves the insertion of a titanium screw into the jawbone of the patient, and this serves as the foundation for the crown on top.
"Many of our patients prefer dental implants because they're fixed in place, so they don't worry about accidentally dislodging them in public," reveals Dr. Chahal. "What's more, they also feel more natural so patients are more comfortable with them."
