|“Always consider the options available and the gravity of your situation before phoning any local emergency dental clinic.”|
Emergency situations occur all the time in Maple Ridge. Medical emergencies are typically treated in emergency room facilities at the hospital, but how about emergency dental treatment?
If you have ever experienced a broken or knocked out tooth, you know that treatment is needed IMMEDIATELY. However, if a patient is not covered by dental insurance or cannot see a dentist, often they resort to taking emergency dental measures. It is important to understand what is an important dental emergency, and what can wait for a few hours or days.
Examples of Not as Serious Dental Emergencies:
With these problems, you will be able to wait until a time when you can make an appointment with us at Maple Place Dental. Take some painkillers in order to experience temporary relief.
Examples of Serious Dental Emergencies:
In these cases, emergency dental treatment is required. These injuries may commonly occur in sporting accidents, car crashes, or children and should be taken immediately to an emergency dental facility.
These serious dental emergencies are also the only problems that require a visit to the emergency dental room. Always consider the options available and the gravity of your situation before phoning any local emergency dental clinic.

Many families in North America are finding it increasingly difficult to gain access to dental care without proper dental or health care. As the economy continues to worsen, patients in Vancouver and the surrounding municipalities are choosing to skip their regular dental appointments.
|“Maintaining a healthy smile is not just purely for cosmetic reasons. Dental diseases are the only cause of death that is easy to find, treat and prevent.”|
In a dramatic wake-up reminder to maintain proper oral health care, a 24 year North American man passed away earlier this week due to an infected tooth. According to ABC, Kyle Willis began noticing a toothache around fourteen days ago. When told that it was necessary for his wisdom tooth to be extracted immediately, he declined the dental work because he did not have a job at the time and lacked health insurance.
When the symptoms worsened and his face began to swell, Willis was taken to the hospital and was given prescriptions for pain medication and antibiotics. He could not pay for both, so Willis opted simply for pain medication.
Without proper dental procedures or medication, Willis’ tooth infection spread–causing his brain to swell. He died Tuesday.
Many dental patients in North America are ignoring the fact that dental disease can lead to serious illness, or even death. In April, a survey was conducted by the Kaiser Family Foundation discovering that 33% of people surveyed skipped dental appointments or dental checkups because they were too expensive.
Maintaining a healthy smile is not just purely for cosmetic reasons. Dental diseases are the only cause of death that is easy to find, treat and prevent. With regular dental appointments, oral health exams and routine cleanings, dental patients in North America can live longer lives with beautiful smiles.
For patients that do not have access to dental insurance and can’t afford to go to the dentist, many dental clinics offer payment plans that suit most financial situations. If you are not able to pay for dental care, even with the help of a financial plan, dental patients in Canada can:
In addition, you can escape expensive dentistry procedures by proactively practicing good oral health. Brush, floss and visit your dentist on a regular schedule for dental exams. These routine check-ups may require payment, but they are much cheaper than dealing with serious dental issues that arise from neglect.

These days, CEOs aren’t fretting over their fine lines, but are more interested in the state of their smile. Executive Esthetic Dentistry is cosmetic dentistry for executives at a high-level, but differs from what a model or actor would pursue when it comes to their teeth. Here at Maple Place Dental in Maple Ridge, we can offer you dental procedures that will give you the smile you deserve to help achieve your work and business goals.
In a recent Forbes magazine article, executive smile makeovers were a prominent feature. Even though these types of makeover aren’t all that trendy, they are getting more media attention in conjunction with other cosmetic surgery procedures. Having a smile you can be proud of gives you the self-confidence you need to succeed in the business world.
Executives also want a natural smile which will work to make them look younger. Business is turning into a more competitive field worldwide which has even Japanese executives turning to cosmetic dentistry. Even though everyone is unique, achieving a great executive esthetic smile has common threads that people share.
Many executives like being at the center of everything, but they seem to be more subtle when choosing a new smile. The look executives lean towards is natural and youthful–a step above their actual smile. With advanced cosmetic dentistry procedures from Maple Place Dental, your smile will help you appear younger, and give a more professional appearance when dealing with clients or prospective clients.
Because corporation presidents and CEO’s are generally older, teeth bleaching alone is not effective enough. Stains have become implanted on the tooth after being built up over the years and cannot be whitened. Executive restorations for patients at our dental clinic in Maple Ridge are more successful when veneers or crowns are used. These cosmetic dentistry procedures can be utilized depending on how much healthy tooth a patient has and whatever their desired outcome may be.
One great thing about cosmetic dentistry is the ability for dentists to make each procedure individual and customized for every unique patient. A unique smile makeover is possible because of recent advancements in dentist technique and smile design, dental materials used, and laboratory expertise.
Whatever your smile makeover aspirations, Maple Place Dental in Maple Ridge can help you create the smile you’ve been looking for. Give us a call today to make an appointment.
It has come across our attention at Maple Place Dental that many aging patients are concerned about losing teeth as they grow older. The truth of the matter is that there is no reason for senior citizens to lose their teeth other than because of oral disease.
Your perfect smile can last you a lifetime, if you take proper care of it.
|“Most dental professionals are seeing that these older citizens are keeping their teeth healthy, allowing for a natural smile with no need of dental implants or dentures.”|
The aging generation is now one of the fastest growing populations in North America. Most dental professionals are seeing that these citizens are keeping their teeth healthy, allowing for a natural smile with no need of dental implants or dentures.
However, a natural smile that lasts a lifetime is only possible with proper oral health care – which typically requires a semi-annual visit to the team at Maple Place Dental.
“We have found that seniors take longer breaks from visiting the dentist,” says Dr. Stephanie Song. “It seems as if they stop caring because they don’t think their oral hygiene matters anymore.”
Proper oral health care is essential for older people for a multitude of reasons. One of which is dry mouth, which slows down the production of saliva. Often seen in elderly patients, dry mouth can be harmful because saliva helps to prevent tooth decay by washing away food particles and eliminating acids. Luckily, a dentist can fix dry mouth.
Senior citizens should also remember to maintain a regiment of daily flossing and brushing with fluoride toothpaste. Elderly people are likely to get cavities where older fillings have broken or where receding gums have left unprotected surfaces.
In addition, for elderly patients to maintain optimal oral health, snacks with sugars and starch should be eliminated.
Keep your smile healthy and complete with proper oral care! Take some time to contact us at Maple Place Dental for a check-up and cleaning today.
With teenagers eating an increased amount of fast food and carbonated beverages to keep up with their busy lifestyle, family dental clinics are witnessing a generation inflicting serious damage to their oral and overall health.
|“One of the leading causes of cavities is from carbonated beverages; which not only result in cavities but also increase obesity in today’s teenager.”|
A poor diet that consists of sugary treats and fast food can result in premature loss of tooth enamel, resulting in a weaker tooth structure. Due to this, it is especially important that teenagers try to maintain a healthy diet.
One of the leading causes of cavities is from carbonated beverages; which not only result in cavities but also increase obesity in today’s teenager.
The citric, tartaric, carbonic and phosphoric acids that come from pop can often lead to the breakdown of tooth enamel, naturally leading to cavities or tooth decay.
In order to actively prevent cavities from occurring, teenagers and parents need to decrease the amount of sugar-filled pop consumed. In addition, regular checkups and cleanings need to be scheduled at your local family dental clinic to ensure optimal oral health.
Contact Maple Place Dental today to book an appointment or to learn more about cavity prevention for teenagers.
