Oral Health

We specialise in helping people learn about their oral health and in developing comprehensive plans to keep your teeth forever in the best possible health, comfort, function and aesthetics.

A Healthy Mouth for a Lifetime

Following your Personal Oral Healthcare Plan will cultivate strong, durable teeth and gums. We promote a daily oral health routine that includes proper brushing and flossing, a balanced diet and use of fluoride. The Marshall Clinic can also recommend dietary supplements, toothpastes and cavity prevention systems based on your needs.

Regular Examinations

Regular dental exams ensure that any oral changes are swiftly noticed and diagnosed. Through exams, we can spot developments such as swelling, growths, teeth chipping and looseness. Together, after the exam, we can decide which records are most appropriate for you (x-rays, intraoral photographs, study models mounted on jaw simulators, or other special tests). Keeping track of new developments is a vital part of optimizing your Personal Oral Healthcare Plan.

Our Oral Health Partnership

We’re proud of our patient-doctor partnership, which many consider a welcome addition to Vancouver dentistry. After your exam, we’ll sit down with you to review our findings in detail and come to a better understanding of your dental goals. It’s been our experience that patients truly do know what’s best for them once they’re well-informed.

The answer is yes. There are many connections between the health of your mouth and the rest of your body. Did you know that chronic oral infections like periodontitis can negatively affect people with heart disease and diabetes.

According to the American Academy of Periodontology, half of all people over age 55 have gum disease. Gum disease is also the main reason people 35 and older lose their teeth.

Warning signs of gum disease are:
• Sour taste in the mouth
• Persistent bad breath
• Bleeding gums
• Swollen, tender gums
• Loose teeth
• Sensitive teeth
• Pain when chewing

Researchers have also uncovered a possible link between gum disease and stroke, osteoporosis, diabetes, respiratory disease, and even preterm babies.

Good dental habits should start at childhood, as you get older stay on top of your oral heath, remember to brush daily, floss and see your dentist for regular checkups. At The Marshall Dental Clinic we believe the best health care is a partnership: patient and doctor co-discover the perfect smile through comprehensive examination and treatment.
