Our Dental Services
We are pleased to offer many different dental services to our clients at Garrison Dentist, and all are performed by our experienced, industry-certified dentists and dental technicians/assistants. These include general dentistry, basic restorative dentistry, tooth fillings and composite fillings, cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics, dental implants, tooth extractions (including wisdom teeth), sedation dentistry, and braces (including Invisalign® braces). We also do bridges, veneers, gum contouring, and a CTS scan machine to screen for oral cancer and other diseases related to the mouth / oral cavity.
The bulk of our appointments every day are to provide general dentistry services for our clients. This includes your standard ‘check ups’ with cleanings, scalings, fluoride applications and the like, along with X-rays and in-person consultations with the dentist to discuss your dental health and what he or she thinks is required of you to maintain it.
Basic Restorative Dentistry
Restorative dentistry includes filling cavities, doing root canals, working to repair chipped or damaged teeth, tooth extractions, installing veneers (or permanent artificial teeth as they are often called), and any and all other procedures to restore your teeth to their original condition as needed.
Two of the most typical aims for people visiting an orthodontist in Chilliwack are straightening their teeth or correcting an overbite. We’re fortunate that modern technology makes orthodontic procedures extremely effective these days.
We specialize in fitting patients with braces or Invisalign clear braces. Invisalign are the equal of conventional braces for straightening and properly aligning teeth, but what makes them popular is the fact that they don’t leave the patient with visible fixtures on their teeth like conventional braces. Instead, these fittings are clear and are only visible up close. From a distance, your smile will seem as natural as ever!
In the past, losing a tooth meant resigning yourself to an artificial one that’s inserted into your mouth and held temporarily in place by a retainer. Today, that’s no longer true. Dental implant technology makes it possible to quickly and nearly painlessly install a new, artificial yet very real-looking implant tooth anywhere in your mouth. The implant is affixed permanently and very securely into your jawbone, and with that, it’s every bit a 100% serviceable replacement that looks like a real tooth.
Teeth can become knocked out or irreparably damaged all too easily, but we can restore your smile with one or more dental implants. Should misfortune occur, come see us as soon as you can for dental implants in Chilliwack.
Teeth are like any part of the human body. They inevitably degenerate over time as we age. Genetic predispositions, lifestyle choices, accidents, and a number of other factors can factor into your teeth being an area where you’d like to see an improvement, and we’re here to help you for whatever reason you’d like to improve the appearance of your teeth. We offer teeth whitening, veneers, bleaching, gum contouring, lumineers (ultra-thin veneers that require only 2 office visits), and more.
Want better looking teeth? Visit us at Garrison Dentist and let’s discuss your options.
We understand that visits to the dentist and undergoing dental procedures can be traumatic for some people. We offer sedation dentistry in Chilliwack (also known as sleep dentistry) and it’s a nice option for those who’ll feel much more comfortable being ‘under’ during their dental procedure. Sedation dentistry is most commonly used for more advanced, invasive and time consuming dental procedures, but we’re happy to discuss the option with you related to your specific condition and proposed course of treatment.
Sedation dentistry is recommended for anyone with:
- Phobias related to dental procedures
- Bad experiences with dental work in the past
- Particularly sensitive oral nerves
- A small mouth that becomes sore during dental work
- Any type of resistance to local anesthetic
- Conditions related to a general anxiety disorder
Lastly, keep in mind that your dentist will conduct a detailed analysis before selecting and administering a dosage that will be safe and effective for you. He or she will also monitor you during the entire time you’re sedated to ensure both your safety and your entire comfort during the procedure.
