Implant Dentistry

Alouette Dental Centre offers dental implant options that look and feel like natural teeth. Whether it’s due to injury or age, implants are a practical way to enhance the appearance of your smile when teeth are missing. Improve your speech, comfort and overall dental health. For durability and convenience, implants are tough to beat. Come in today to determine if implants are the best option for you.

Digital X-Rays

Our practice uses digital X-rays, which are taken by digital sensors instead of traditional photographic film. The small sensors are placed in your mouth, and the images are sent to a computer immediately for you to view. We can explain your diagnosis and show the problem without ever leaving your side.

The main advantages are:

  • Digital X-rays are fast, easy, and painless.

  • Digital X-rays have excellent image quality.

  • Digital X-rays use a fraction of the radiation of traditional film X-rays (the equivalent being the amount a person receives on a typical summer day).

  • Digital X-rays do not use chemicals.

Wisdom Teeth Removal

Located in the back corners of your mouth, your final set of molars can be found. Commonly called wisdom teeth, these last set of molars usually erupt from the gums sometime between the ages of 18 and 21. Unfortunately, most adults deal with some form of wisdom teeth issue because the jawbones are too small to accommodate these new molars. 


Wisdom teeth problems are usually the result of those last molars being pushed into awkward angles as they try to erupt from the gums. This can lead to the teeth becoming impacted, causing pain. They can also end up pushing on and damaging other teeth, creating more serious oral health concerns. For example, if impacted wisdom teeth are not dealt with, overcrowding and bite misalignment can occur. Luckily, Alouette Dental Centre provides wisdom teeth removal in Maple Ridge.


It’s important to have frequent x-rays during your routine dental checkups. X-rays can help determine if your wisdom teeth aren’t growing properly. Furthermore, if you experience jaw pain and stiffness, pain where your wisdom teeth would be, or swelling of your gum tissue, these may be signs that you need wisdom teeth removal. Maple Ridge residents can talk to the team at Alouette Dental Centre to learn more about wisdom teeth and how they can impact your oral health.

Sedation

While most Maple Ridge families know that dental health is important, fear of the dentist chair can intimidate patients into avoiding regular check-ups and crucial dental procedures for years. At Alouette Dental, we offer sedation dentistry so you can relax during your treatment. This sedation allows you to block out the procedure so we can work efficiently and get you out of the chair (and back to your life) as soon as possible.

Who can benefit from sedation?

  • Anyone who has fear and anxiety about dental treatment of any kind.

  • Anyone who has put off dental care for years because of dental anxieties.

  • Anyone who wants to have all their dental care completed in one or two visits.

  • Anyone who wants to be treated in a relaxed, caring and comfortable environment.

Because you’ll need to take the sedation pill before you leave home, someone must accompany you to and from the dentist’s office. Although you’ll feel completely refreshed when the procedure is over, you’ll still be under the effects of sedation. Luckily, upon completion of your dental treatment under conscious sedation, you will feel relaxed with little or no memory of the procedure.

Post Dental Care

Fillings and Crowns

You should avoid any hard foods for the first 24 hours. Anytime you receive a new filling or crown preparation, the teeth are going to be a bit sensitive, especially to cold. This is normal and will gradually subside in a few days. However, if the bite feels off or it hurts every time you bite down, there is probably a high spot to be adjusted. Give our office a call right away so that we can get you in to alleviate the problem.


Root Canal Treatment

After root canal treatment, the tooth will probably be sore for the first day or two. Some ibuprofen or Advil will help. Avoid chewing any hard foods until a crown is placed. Almost all back teeth need a crown after a root canal since a great amount of tooth structure is lost from the decay, and without the nerve and blood vessels it will dry up and become very brittle, making the teeth more susceptible to fracture. A crown serves to hold the tooth together and reduce the likelihood of the tooth fracturing in the future.

Dentures

You may develop some sore spots after the first day or two. These are called denture sores or pressure spots, and they indicate the need for adjustment. Remember, these sore spots do not go away on their own, and they may get worse if not adjusted. Call our office right away to correct the situation. Sometimes it may take two or three adjustments to get the pressure just right so no sores will return. Eat softer foods at first and practice speaking out loud to help you get used to the new dentures.

At night you should take out your dentures so the gum and tissue can have a rest and breathe. Soak your dentures in a glass of water (with denture cleaner if preferred), and then brush them and put them back in the next morning.
