To best serve your oral care needs, Dr. Nazanin Narani offers a number of general services. As a leading periodontist and implant dentist in Coquitlam, BC, she has refined the techniques necessary to provide treatment for periodontal conditions and permanent replacement of missing teeth. The following describes of number of services offered by our practice.
While we make every effort to save teeth when possible, there are times when the best course of action is extraction. If your general dentist in Coquitlam, BC has referred you to our office for a dental implant, we can often extract the tooth and place the implant the same day.
When the teeth fail to come together properly, conditions secondary to this maladjustment may occur. Dr. Narani can correct problems with the bite by performing an occlusal adjustment, which involves removing minute portions of enamel until preferred occlusion is achieved.
Dr. Narani takes advantage of advanced technology by using the VELscope® Vx system for oral evaluation. Fluorescence is used to screen for tissue abnormalities that may not otherwise be visible to the naked eye. When detected early, oral cancer is very treatable and success rates are high.
Many factors may contribute to the habit of teeth grinding, also known as bruxism. These extreme forces often lead to tooth damage, TMJ disorder and chronic head, neck and ear pain. Dr. Narani can diagnose bruxism and recommend solutions for alleviating associated symptoms.
A gingivectomy may be recommended when excess gum tissue is contributing to infection or causing aesthetic issues. During this procedure, Dr. Narani can remove excess tissue and reshape the area to improve gum health and appearance.
After receiving treatment for periodontal disease, it is imperative to maintain regular cleanings. A periodontal maintenance program includes cleanings every three to four months to monitor the condition of the gums, treat any active recurrences and maintain periodontal health.
Our periodontist in Coquitlam, BC utilizes techniques that are proven effective in regrowth of tissues often lost to periodontal infection. Guided Tissue Regeneration is one such process, and involves using barrier membranes to enhance and control the regeneration of bone and gum tissue.
