Preventative Family Dentistry in Surrey
Your Family’s Great Health Is Our Mission
Today, patients and doctors work together to prevent health issues, and this cooperative effort is priority at our office. We employ state-of-the-art technology, including digital x-rays and intraoral imaging so that Dr. Chohan can show her patients the state of their oral health. On iPads, patients can view educational videos that further explain procedures. Cooperatively, she and her patients discuss issues that require treatment, as well as preventive measures to ensure long-lasting, good oral health.
Home Dental Care
Every day, we all need to take time for simple, yet highly effective, preventative home care routines. Even infants benefit from a soft, gentle cleaning of their gums and cheeks. Once their first tooth erupts, children require twice-daily brushing with a small brush and un-fluoridated toothpaste. By age three or four, fluoridated toothpaste should be used and flossing performed. A regular daily oral care routine for children and adults involves brushing for two minutes in the morning and evening, and flossing once each day. Adding a tongue scraper and antibacterial mouthwash to your daily routine can help in the battle against plaque and tooth decay.
In conjunction with daily home care, dental visits for professional cleanings and exams are imperative. At a checkup, Dr. Chohan examines teeth, gums, other soft tissues, jaw joint function, head, and neck. She looks for signs of gum disease, oral cancer, halitosis, dry mouth, and tooth decay, fracture, or wear. When she finds dental problems in their early stages, treatment is often conservative and simple. Left untreated, dental issues can become severe, and bacterial infection may even become blood borne. Between checkups, if you experience any oral abnormalities or pain, schedule an appointment for Dr. Chohan to assess the situation. You may require restorative dental treatment to return optimal oral health.
Checkups and cleanings are not the only elements of professional, preventative dental care. We also offer:
