ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

During your regularly scheduled visits to our office, your teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue will undergo a comprehensive examination by your Surrey dentist to ensure their ongoing health. Routine visits help ensure that cavities, shifting teeth, gum disease, and other issues are uncovered and treated promptly.

Along with the exam, your teeth will also receive a thorough professional cleaning, including tartar removal, fluoride treatment, and polishing. As cavity-causing tartar buildup can only be properly removed by a dental hygienist, maintaining a regular cleaning schedule is very important.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How often should I come in for a cleaning?

We recommend a dental exam and cleaning every 6 months. Some patients require more frequent cleanings. Improving your oral hygiene routine at home will aide in improving your oral health, and will require less time at your hygiene visits.

What is your dentist looking for during a dental exam?
  • Damaged, missing or decayed teeth
  • Early signs of cavities
  • Condition of your gums, such as periodontal pockets, inflammation or other signs of gum disease (which can lead to tooth and bone loss) to see how previous dental work such as root canals, fillings and crowns are holding up
  • Early signs of mouth or throat cancer, such as white lesions or blocked salivary glands
  • Other suspicious growths or cysts
  • Position of your teeth (e.g., spacing, bite)
  • Signs that you clench or grind your teeth (a treatable problem that can cause headache or sore jaw and can, if serious, lead to hearing loss and tooth loss)
  • Signs of bleeding or inflammation on your tongue and on the roof or floor of your mouth
  • The overall health and function of your temporomandibular joint (which joins the jaw to skull), checking for signs of disorders that can cause pain or tenderness
  • The general condition of the bones in your face, jaw and around your mouth

The dental exam can catch problems early—before you see or feel them—when they are much easier and less expensive to treat.

Your dentist may explain what’s happening during the exam and give you a summary of the findings. If not, be sure to ask. As patient, you are a full partner in your oral health care.

How often should I get x-rays done?

X-rays are prescribed on a case-by-case basis. Dr Kooner and Dr Cancar prefer to review a patient’s dental history, and examine their mouth before deciding when and which x-rays are needed. Usually x-rays are prescribed once a year.

Do you claim insurance directly or do I have to pay upfront?

We will claim insurance directly when we can.

Do you do treatment under general anesthetic?

We do not offer treatment under general anesthetic; however we do offer conscious oral sedation to help you feel more relaxed during your dental treatment.

  • I appreciate how understanding, accommodating, and patient each Staff member is when tending to my elderly mother, who suffers from Alzheimer's. She is now getting the dental care she needs after years of refusing to go to a dentist.

  • Dr. Kooner and her staff are always caring and helpful.  They're always able to put me at ease while getting dental work done. Thank you!

    Amy
  • I had just moved and as always happens I had a dental emergency. I went online late in the evening requesting to be seen by a Dr. on Saturday.  I received a prompt email the very next morning followed by a phone call.  Gurvinder was awesome and answered all my questions.  1 day later a doctor was taking care of my dental emergency.  Late hours + weekend hours are perfect for me.  I will continue coming here!

  • I have been happy with the care I have received from Green Apple Dental and have recommended them to friends and family.
