Simply put, we “do it all” to protect your smile with comprehensive preventative dentistry services

Tooth or dental decay represents one of the most common childhood health conditions, while gum or periodontal disease is one of the most common conditions affecting adults. Together, decay and gum disease are the leading causes of tooth loss. The good news is that your friends at Simply Wellness Dental in East Vancouver, British Columbia, can stop these and other oral problems from arising in the first place. Proactive dental care, such as exams and cleanings, also helps to prevent these conditions in their earliest stages (before they cause pain and damage). 

Simply stated, our dentists, Drs Adi Nokiani, Ashleigh Sran, and Eric Quan, do it all to keep your smile and health healthy. Exams and cleanings are just one part of a solid preventative dental program. During regular, 6-month recall appointments, our dentists and hygiene team will:

  • Comprehensively evaluate the health and condition of your teeth, gums, jaw joints, and other supportive structures and tissue
  • Clean your teeth and gum line with special dental instruments and techniques; only the “pros” can remove stubborn plaque build-up or tartar 
  • As needed, identify the extent or severity of existing gum disease (gingival inflammation or infection)
  • Check for suspicious lumps, bumps, patches, and other signs of pre-cancerous lesions or oral cancers 
  • Discuss and demonstrate good brushing and flossing technique
  • Provide you with recommendations for oral care products
  • Prescribe medicated rinses or medications to, for instance, help fight bacteria 
  • Talk about potential treatments to resolve any problems that we may find 
  • Answer any questions you may have about nutrition, habits, and other concerns 
  • Recommend professional preventative services to help protect the health of your teeth, gums, and mouth 
  • Apply such preventative services; for instance, sealants may be applied to decay-prone back teeth in just minutes during regular appointments 

The rule is that healthy individuals should maintain recall visits two times per year or one visit every six months. You may be an exception to that rule. One of our dentists may recommend that you visit us more frequently. So we can check on potential trouble spots in your mouth. Or, we may need to follow up to see how well-recommended interventions are working. Some patients may also be at increased risk of developing gum disease or oral cancer due to their overall health or habits, such as smoking and tobacco use. 

If you are due for a check-up or concerned about a tooth, Simply Wellness Dental encourages you to contact us immediately. Schedule an appointment by calling our office in East Vancouver, BC, at (604) 229-5922. We know that oral health supports overall wellness, as so many functions vital to your well-being depend on the condition of your mouth.
