Teeth Cleaning

Teeth cleaning is an important part of your overall healthcare. A lot of people do not place a great deal of emphasis on having your teeth professionally cleaned, but gum disease and oral health problems have been linked to other diseases such as heart disease.
The main reason for getting teeth cleaning is to maintain the health of your teeth so you can keep them as long as possible. Regular home cleanings such as brushing and flossing can remove the majority of bacteria and plaque from your teeth, but there are many areas where your brush and floss cannot reach. In these areas, bacteria flourish and eat away at your teeth, gums and the bone surrounding the teeth. If things are left this way, then over time your teeth can become loose and eventually have to be removed. Routine teeth cleanings can prevent this from occurring.

Besides preventing gum disease, teeth cleanings can prevent other conditions, such as bad breath, discoloured teeth, sensitivity and tooth decay. During your teeth cleanings, your hygienist and/or dentist will check you for any of these problems and therefore, preventing things from getting worse.

Children’s Dentistry

Children’s Dentistry in Langley BC

At Langley Village Dental, we pride ourselves in taking care of our littlest patients. Children can be a challenge for any kind of activity, whether it’s a haircut or bath, and dental care is no exception. In fact, it can be the most challenging thing for a child. To sit still, with their mouth open for an adult they don’t know can be a scary and intimidating experience. Our mission at LVD is to make the visit as comfortable and fun as possible.
All our dental chairs are equipped with televisions so your child can watch their favourite TV program while they have their treatment completed. If they need to wait before or after their appointment, then we have a toy chest full of toys for all ages. For older children, there is an Xbox with several games to keep them entertained and challenged. After a successful appointment, your child will get to choose a toy from our large treasure chest. Our staff are well trained with children and love interacting with them. Patience is a virtue when working with children and we have it in leaps and bounds.

Are Dental X-Rays Taken by Your Dentist Safe?

Recent articles and studies have stated their concerns about dental x-rays and their effects on patients. Some have gone as far as stating a link between dental x-rays and certain tumours. But experts agree that these studies are deeply flawed in not only their conclusions but also in their methods.
So are dental x-rays taken by your dentist safe? Simply put, the answer is: yes they are. Out of the different types of x-rays used in medicine, dental x-rays have the lowest radiation dose of them all. To give you an example of how low this dose is, they can be compared to the amount of radiation a person receives from background radiation (radiation from air, water, food, soil, space, etc). The average person is exposed to approximately 3,600 microsieverts of radiation in a year from background radiation. Typically, on a routine examination, your dentist will take 2-4 bitewing x-rays to look for cavities between your teeth, if needed. These x-rays emit 2-3 microsieverts of radiation. That works out to almost 0.08% of radiation from dental x-rays when compared to radiation from the environment.

Dental Sedation

Dental sedation is becoming more and more frequent for not just anxious dental patients, but for people who would rather be more comfortable through their dental procedures. Not all dental clinics offer dental sedation, but here at Langley Village Dental, you have the option of choosing dental sedation for your dental procedures.
Dental sedation involves taking a couple of pills before your appointment. You will arrive at the dental clinic one hour before your dental appointment and the dentist will provide you with some pills that you will take. It usually takes about 40 minutes to an hour for the dental sedation to take effect. During this time, you will be monitored and placed in a relaxing environment until it is time for your appointment. The dentist will check on you frequently to check your vitals and the level of sedation you have reached.
