Oral Health Services in New Westminister
Practicing good oral hygiene is a critical aspect to prevent bad breath, gum disease, and other qualities of an unhealthy mouth. Asante Dental can provide services to improve your oral hygiene, but it is good to practice brushing your teeth and flossing every day.
Asante Dental offers a variety of teeth cleaning services at a reasonable rate to prevent disease and improve oral health. At your request, our dentists can make recommendations on teeth whitening treatment that is right for you.
Tooth decay happens gradually as you get older and can cause tooth enamel on the hard, outer layer of your teeth. Tooth decay is a result of plaque build-up and disease within the teeth and our dental health specialists can treat this build-up of plaque to prevent tooth decay.

Professional Dental Cleaning
Daily brushing and flossing will keep dental calculus, also called tartar, to a minimum, but a professional cleaning will remove calculus in places your toothbrush and floss have missed. At Asante Dental in New Westminster, we offer professional dental cleanings to improve your dental health and assist in your oral hygiene.
Caring for sensitive teeth
Sometimes after dental treatment, teeth are sensitive to hot and cold. The sensitivity should not last long as the area is in recovery. If your teeth are especially sensitive, consult with your dental professional at Asante Dental. They may recommend a medicated toothpaste or mouth rinse made especially for sensitive teeth.
Eating Healthy For Your Teeth
Sticky and starchy foods create less acid when eaten as part of a meal. Saliva production increases at mealtime, rinsing away food particles, and neutralizing harmful acids.
Foods such as nuts, cheese, onions, and some teas have been shown to slow growth of decay causing bacteria in the mouth.
Sticky/slow to dissolve foods:
- Granola bars
- Chewy fruit snacks
- Dried fruit
- Hard candy
Good nutrition plays a large role in your dental health. Brushing and flossing help keep your teeth and gums healthy and strong. However, a balanced diet will help to boost your body’s immune system, leaving you less vulnerable to oral disease.
How often and what you eat have been found to affect your dental health. Eating starchy foods such as crackers, bread, cookies, and candy causes the bacteria in your mouth feed on it, they then produce acids, which attack your teeth for up to 20 minutes or more. Foods that stick to your teeth or are slow to dissolve give the acids more time to work on destroying tooth enamel.
