Proud to Present the Wonders of Dental Implants in Dubai

Dollarphotoclub_64184840-300x225 While Dr. Wassenaar is committed to making positive impacts on the dental health of our community in Williams Lake, he’s also making impacts on a larger scale.

As an experienced implant dentist, he’s an active member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists. Through international organizations, he’s able to participate in global conferences to share and gain knowledge in dentistry on a global scale.

Last month, Dr. Wassenaar was invited to present his scholarly findings on dental implants at the World Congress on Dental and Oral Health 2016 in Dubai. He was excited to lead a lecture and learn from a variety of dentists all around the world.

The topics of this year’s presentations were centered on “focusing on changing disease patterns and treatment needs in dental and oral health.”

The conference was able to bring together research from Prosthodontics, Periodontics, Oral and Maxillofacial surgeons, Endodontics, Restorative Sciences, Orthodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, Operative Dentistry, oral biology, and other dental and oral health fields. It combined the best of the best from every field, so dental professionals could broaden the knowledge on areas outside of their expertise.

Dr. Wassenaar’s Presentation in Dubai

Dr. Wassenaar was excited to accept the request and give a lecture on Implantology.

The premise of his lecture focused on the evolution of technology in with dental implants, and how easy it’s become to improve the lives of those suffering with tooth loss.

In their infancy, about 20 years ago, dental implants were used to improve the lives of patients, but the results weren’t exact. Longevity, esthetics, and function were compromised, because technology just wasn’t at the same level that it’s at today.

Now, we can use biotechnology to find the healthiest and most effective area to place an implant in the bone for better function and longevity. Now, we can use CBCT technology and CAD/CAM to use a precise surgical guide to place implants in a safe and quick way.

Not to mention, bone grafting has allowed dentists to make patient’s jaws more stable to receive an implant. Advancements in implant designs have also made modern implants more beautiful and realistic than ever. 

Dental implants have come a long way and opened the door for a lot of suffering patients.

Modern dental implants have offhandedly changed the face of endodonics and periodontology. It’s easy, safe, and healthier for to remove problem teeth and replace them with implants, instead of having patients suffer with dysfunctional teeth.

For prosthodontics, dental implants have become a conservative option for people with missing teeth. As science, medicine, and technology continue to progress, implant dentistry will make a positive footprint on the entire world.

These are just some of the findings that Dr. Wassenaar was proud to present to some of his international colleagues, so they, too, can see the benefits of dental implants in multiple facets of dentistry.

Dear valued patients of Williams Lake Smiles,

Happy New Year to all our patients and friends of Williams Lake Smiles!

There’s just something about a new year! It represents a clean slate, a new beginning for many of us. As we finished up with 2020, we all want to believe that 2021 will bring a sort of relief from much of what the past year has brought us. 

Although there are still many restrictions and hurdles ahead of us, we are all doing our best to prove that we are resilient and focused on brighter and healthier days ahead.

The start of 2021 finds many of us evaluating our health and making plans and potential changes for the year ahead. So, as you are making some New Year’s resolutions, don’t forget to add dental care to that list!

Managing your dental health is a key factor of keeping your immune system strong to help protect you against any attack. Just as important as a good diet, rest and exercise, your dental health is something you should not ignore.

Often dental changes can happen with little to no discomfort or warning. Just as changes in the rest of your body happen, it is the same for your teeth and mouth. We all know that age, stress, hormones and busy schedules (just to name a few) sneak up on us and seem to cause changes to our bodies almost overnight. Where you used to be able to eat whatever you wanted, barely exercise and stay up all hours of the night, you might be noticing that you just can’t do that anymore! It is similar with our dental care routine. If you have been doing the same routine for what seems like forever, it might be time to evaluate and change things, even slightly, to be more effective in keeping your teeth and gums healthy for a lifetime.

Our team at Williams Lake Smiles is here to help make your health a top priority. We look forward to continuing to work with you as life changes happen and want to make dental pain and emergency the smallest challenges possible.

This past year we have been working even harder to make our office a safe, welcoming place for you to visit. You may notice our policies and protocols have changed and will continue to do so based on recommendations from our professional colleges, provincial and local health authorities. Please respect these new policies and understand that some extra screening and time is required in order to achieve this. To keep things running smoothly, it is very important to complete all screening paperwork prior to all visits to our office. If the required paperwork is not completed, we may need to reschedule your appointment time.

Contact our team to schedule a dental appointment to help you be the healthiest you in 2021.

We look forward to seeing you soon,

Dr Rudy Wassenaar and the team at Williams Lake Smiles
