For the 30+ years that Dr. Chan has been practicing dentistry, she focuses heavily on the concept of preventative dentistry – to prevent the development of dental diseases (cavities, gum disease, etc.) by reinforcing good oral hygiene practices (brushing, flossing, regular dental cleanings). A simple toothbrush and toothpaste can do wonders, and are a lot more cost effective than having to pay for dental restorations.
Early Detection of Dental Disease
To parallel the concept of preventative dentistry, it is important to diagnose dental disease at an early stage so that if treatment is warranted, treatment would be non-invasive and conservative (i.e. less tooth structure needs to be removed, which makes for a stronger tooth).
Regular dental check ups are important too! At these appointments, Dr. Chan can examine the health of your teeth and other oral structures (e.g. gums, oral tissues) to determine if there has been positive change (i.e. improvement of oral hygiene) or if dental treatment is needed.
