Family Dentistry in Chilliwack, BC

Family Dentists for Children and Adults

We understand the importance of providing our patients with excellent preventative, restorative, and cosmetic dentistry. Our doctors and staff are committed to offering the finest care in one convenient location.

Teeth Cleanings (Dental Hygiene)

Most of us know that in order to maintain total health, good oral health is essential. There is an increasing amount of literature and scientific research showing the link between oral and overall health. With the evidence mounting, dental cleanings are probably on your mind.

Wisdom Teeth Extractions

Wisdom teeth removal is a scary prospect for most people and, unfortunately, many people have problems with their wisdom teeth and need some or all of them removed.  If your wisdom teeth require removal, our doctors will make this procedure as comfortable as possible and are able to deliver I.V. sedation to alleviate any anxiety that you may have.

TMJ Therapy

Disorders of the jaw joint (the temporomandibular joint or TMJ) and facial muscles are very common and can be very debilitating.  Most people who suffer from these problems think that they will need to live with them for life but with modern therapies this is often not the case.  Also, with routine examinations these problems can often be uncovered at earlier stages during which time interceptive therapies such as minor bite adjustments can significantly alter the course that they will take.  If you are interested in looking at the options that are available to you, please book a consultation with one of our doctors.

Bite Rehabilitation

A dental reality for some patients is that they have severely worn or broken down teeth or have lost many of their own natural teeth.  These cases tend to be quite complex and need to be planned very carefully if they are to be stabilized for a long term healthy and esthetic result.  In such cases we take very detailed and thorough records (such as impressions of the teeth), formulate a plan with our patients goals in mind, and then sit down for an interactive consultation to discuss options and decide on the course of action that our patient is most comfortable with.

Dental Extractions

If a tooth has been broken or damaged by decay, our goal is always to repair it with a filling, crown or other treatment. Sometimes, though, there is too much damage for the tooth to be repaired and it must be extracted.  We will ensure that you are comfortable and can provide sedation to further help to alleviate any fear that you may have.

Gum Surgery (Periodontal Surgery or grafting)

Recession of the gums exposes the underlying root.  Apart from the esthetic issue this creates, there are other more serious implications of recession.  The root is more prone to decay, and wear (erosion/abrasion).  If there is recession, there is always bone loss around the tooth. The more bone loss, the less anchored the tooth is.  Gum grafting can cover exposed root surfaces protecting them from the above mentioned risks.  The gums will be tougher and less prone to recession.

Dentures

A denture is a removable replacement for missing teeth and surrounding tissues. Two types of dentures are available – complete and partial dentures. Complete dentures are used when all of the teeth are missing, while partial dentures are used when some natural teeth remain.  While nothing can compare to your natural teeth, we take great care to ensure that your denture will be as comfortable as possible while also striving to make it look like your own natural teeth.

Root Canals

Our dentists at Vita Dental use root canal treatment to treat problems of the tooth’s soft core (the dental pulp). Years ago, teeth with diseased or injured pulps due to trauma or decay were removed. Today, root canal treatment has given dentists a safe way of saving teeth.  With modern anesthetics and techniques, this procedure can be completed in comfort.

Emergency Dentistry

We offer emergency services and strive to see dental emergencies on the same day.  After hours, our dentists are available for patients of the practice and the emergency number can be obtained by calling our office.  During regular office hours, please call us to book an appointment.

Digital Radiographs

Our office is equipped with digital radiographs (“X-Rays”).  This technology significantly reduces our patients’ exposure to radiation as it utilizes a much more sensitive sensor (up to 10 times less radiation then conventional radiographs).

Botox

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time.   We are happy to discuss your goals and see if botox would be a suitable way to help you meet them.
