We at Dr. Jennifer F. Cote Inc. would like to welcome to our practice website and congratulate you on taking the first step toward better oral health. Please use this website as a resource to help you better understand and answer any questions related to periodontal treatment. We are proud to be a Vancouver Periodontist office offering the latest in technology to our patients, ensuring the highest level of dental treatment possible.
Periodontist help maintain the structural integrity of your teeth by treating periodontal diseases and returning your smile with dental implants. Plaque-induced inflammation, gingivitis and periodontitis if left untreated will compromise the tissue structures holding the teeth, making tooth loss common. When caught and treated early risk of tooth loss is minimal, and your gums will look and feel healthy.
Dental implants are metal anchors that act as tooth root substitutes. They are surgically placed into the jawbone. Small posts are then attached to the implant which protrude through the gums. These posts provide stable anchors for replacement teeth. This enables the patient to regain the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours will be preserved.
