What We Offer
Our Dental Services & Technology
Whether youâ€™re in need of emergency treatment, sedation for your appointment, or a full smile makeover, our expert dental team will help you achieve your goals!
Personalized prevention aims to enrich your oral health and reduce the requirement for dental restorations throughout your lifetime. We conduct a thorough assessment of your oral health and establish a custom hygiene program for you to follow at home and via regular office visits.
Preventive care minimizes your risk of developing tooth decay and periodontal disease (gum disease). Poor oral and dental health can result in serious infections of the mouth, the teeth, and the entire body.
Preventative maintenance allows you to keep your beautiful, vibrant smile whilst still maintaining the healthy structure of your teeth and gums
We know the true value of a beautiful smile. For this reason, we dedicate our practice to helping Maple Ridge residents achieve a radiant, healthy smile that they can proudly share with others. Our dental experts offer a full range of Cosmetic Dentistry services, including:
Professional Teeth Whitening
Having whiter teeth has become a priority aesthetic concern for today’s patients.
Professional In-Office Tooth Whitening (or bleaching) is a simple, non-invasive dental treatment that we routinely use to brighten the color of natural tooth enamel.
In fact, a single Professional Whitening at Maple Place Dental can brighten your smile 6-10 shades – in about an hour!
Gummy Smile is a condition in which the gums cover too much of the teeth (usually the front teeth), which can cause teeth to appear to be unnaturally short, and cause individuals to avoid smiling.
Gum contouring, also known as gum reshaping, is a quick and painless cosmetic procedure that we use to treat and overcome gummy smiles.
The results of gum contouring are dramatic and empowering – often patients remark that they should have had the procedure years before!
Invisalign Clear Aligners
Introducing Invisalign Clear Aligner Therapy. Straight Teeth means better oral health.
Invisalign treatment can be a great solution â€“ for adults, teens, and even children â€“ using clear aligner therapy to improve your smile and bite. Invisalign treatment uses a series of clear aligners that work to correct your orthodontic issues while offering the appearance of wearing no braces.
For over 20 years, Invisalign has invested in innovations and technological advancements to make it possible to fix nearly all common teeth-straightening and bite issues, from simple to complex. Rest assured, Invisalign clear-aligner treatment is the most advanced clear aligner system in the world, backed by more than two decades of innovation. And, at Maple Place Dental, our entire practice team is here to improve your oral health and support you through this journey.
We offer a full range of modern restorations to bring your bite back to peak performance.
Dental Crowns & Bridges
Losing or chipping a tooth can be a traumatic experience especially if the empty space it leaves is visible when you smile. Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, however, crown and bridge restorations can look and feel just like the real thing.
A fixed bridge is a way of replacing a missing tooth that uses the teeth on either side of the lost one as anchors to hold the replacement tooth in place. To form the bridge, the two teeth must be fitted for crowns, which are crafted in a lab along with the new tooth.Â We customize your bridges to fit the unique spacing of your teeth and mouth, plus we take the time to match the shade of your bridge to your existing teeth for a beautiful natural look. In fact, your permanent bridges will be straighter, stronger, and more beautiful than the tooth that used to be there!
Bridges are permanent, stable, comfortable, and, in most cases, completely natural-looking. They are not the best option, however, if more than three teeth in a row are missing, the anchor teeth are not solid, or the anchor teeth are in virgin condition. In such cases, dentures or implants may be a better option.
Mercury Free Fillings
Silver fillings are a thing of the past. We use tooth-coloured (composite) fillings that are not only extremely strong and wear-resistant but also almost impossible to tell from real enamel.
Replacing old silver fillings with these new, natural-looking materials can take years off your smile by erasing evidence of past dental work.
Modern dental implants make a dramatic improvement in your oral function and lifestyle.
Implants can fill a single gap in your smile or serve as an anchor for multiple missing teeth. Implants provide a strong foundation for your bite while looking and feeling like natural teeth.
With dentalÂ implants, our patients rediscover the comfort and confidence to smile, eat, speak, laugh, and enjoy life.
Root Canal Therapy Treatment
A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures performed in North America. More than 14 million root canal procedures take place every year.
Our dental experts will ensure that your root canal is a pain-free, positive experience restoring your oral health and eliminating the need for further more complex restorations.
Wisdom Tooth Extractions
Wisdom teeth can become impacted against neighboring teeth, preventing their emergence. Impacted wisdom teeth can become problematic, painful, and need to be removed.
At Maple Place Dental our skilled dentists can extract the most impacted wisdom teeth with routine oral surgery. We are equipped to conduct wisdom tooth extraction with or without sedation.
Maple Place Dental offers both Oral and IV sedation for adults and children in our cutting edge Sedation Dentistry suite.
Conscious Oral Sedation
Conscious oral sedation involves taking a medication by mouth in pill or liquid form before your appointment. You will be able to experience your entire procedure in a state of dreamy comfort while still being conscious and able to respond to our dental team. Because you are unaware of the passing of time, even the most complicated procedures can be done in what will seem only a matter of minutes.
Our experts are trained to prepare and deliver IV sedation to make your dental experience relaxing and positive. With IV sedation you are fully anesthetized and fully monitored while we carry out your dentistry. You will wake up with a beautiful, healthy new smile with little or no memory of your treatment.
In the event that your child has dental fears, or cannot sit still in order to get their essential dental work or hygiene treatment completed, we offer pediatric sedation. Our dental experts are specially trained to safely sedate and treat your child.
The Maple Place Dental clinic uses the latest technology to bring you modern dentistry. Highlights include:
VELscope Oral Cancer Screening
Oral Cancer can be a potentially deadly type of cancer but if detected early, the survival rate for patients with oral cancer is 83%. Late detection of oral cancer, however, gives patients only a 32% chance of survival.
What is the VELscope System?
The VELscope is a safe and revolutionary handheld device that shines a blue light and highlights abnormal oral tissue and lesions that could indicate oral cancer. VELscope doesnâ€™t use any dyes or rinses and is completely non-invasive and pain-free.
How Long Does an Exam Last?
A VELscope exam will typically take no more than 5 minutes and has no side effects. In this short time, your oral health care professional can investigate any abnormal oral tissue and help prevent not just oral cancer but fungal infections and bacterial growth.
Book Your VELscope Appointment
Early detection is key in the fight against oral cancer so contact our friendly dental staff and book your VELscope appointment for your peace of mind and excellent oral health.Â
Digital Dental Radiography
No more wedging film between your teeth and gums or waiting around for negatives to develop: with Digital X-rays we use a small electronic sensor that sends a crystal-clear image of your teeth to our computer monitor almost instantly!
Our computer can compare recent Digital X-rays with past ones, so it can detect even the slightest changes in the appearance of your teeth. That means problems are caught sooner when they are easier and less expensive to treat. Digital X-rays also reduce radiation exposure by up to 90% when compared to traditional film-based technology used in the past!
Hospital Grade Sterilization
We utilize the same state-of-the-art disinfection and sterilization equipment that is used in hospital surgical suites. This ensures thorough cleaning and effective sterilization of all of our instruments and makes your appointments more efficient.
Laser Dentistry is a cutting edge alternative for our patients. Dental Lasers can reduce or eliminate the need for anesthesia, reduce the risk of infection, and speed recovery times following dental procedures.
We have the Odyssey Laser for soft tissue can be used for:
- Gum reshaping and contouring for certain cosmetic procedures
- Periodontal treatment
- Removal of small growths on the gums or lips (treatment for cold sores)
- Removal of excess gum tissue from “gummy smiles”
