With the success of the First Chagger Dental office in Oakville, open in 2006, Chagger has now expanded to include nine different practices across the greater Toronto area and in to Lambton county. From day one, we at Chagger Dental have made it a top priority to build our team with highly skilled professionals that share our core values: passion, knowledge, care and compassion and adhere to our philosophy: “To create a dental experience that caters to your individual needs in a comfortable and relaxed manner coupled with Dental Technology.” Holding each member of the team to these high standards ensure that our patients across Petrollia and beyond can trust they are in the best hands when choosing Chagger Dental Petrolia.
Facing your first dentist appointment can be a little overwhelming. We here at Chagger Dental Petrolia want to ensure your first, and all visits are as relaxed and comfortable as possible. During your first appointment, we will complete a thorough exam of your mouth and teeth.
During the exam, your dentist will be checking the overall condition of each of your teeth, as well as your gums and check for gum disease or decay. It is important to diagnose and treat any oral health issues at the first sight of trouble to ensure the issues do not result, or do not stem from a larger medical issue.
Once the thorough examination has been complete, your dental team will discuss a variety of treatment or maintenance options to ensure optimal oral health. It is common to receive a teeth cleaning during your initial visit; however, if the examination requires additional attention, your teeth cleaning may be scheduled for your subsequent visit.
In total, expect the length of your first visit to run anywhere between 60 and 90 minutes. We allow for plenty of time for the initial visit to ensure each of your teeth receives the proper care and attention required to build and maintain a beautiful smile.
If you find yourself in need of more extensive dental procedures and are experiencing anxiety or nerves as your appointment date approaches, don’t worry. Nerves and anxiety are common in the face of the unknown, we here at Chagger Dental Petrolia understand this.
As part of our mission to provide quality dental care in a relaxed and comfortable environment, as well take care your mental health in addition to your oral health, we offer sedation dentistry to help alleviate any stresses on appointment day. Our sedation dentistry offers three different options to better suit your needs: an oral pill, nitrous oxide (known as laughing gas), and intravenous sedation.
Whatever your sedation dentistry preference, these options will ensure you are calm, comfortable and relaxed during your procedure. The Chagger Petrolia Dental team also understands that a large factor in helping patients feel more confident about upcoming procedures is to fully understand the procedure in question. Our team strongly believes in patient education, as a result, we offer a number of educational videos under our Dental Education tab. Call us today to see which option is best for you.
Dental Emergencies might seem a little dramatic and you may find yourself thinking you’ll never find yourself in a ‘dental emergency’; however, accidents happen every day. If you ever find yourself in a situation that requires an emergency dentist you can take comfort in knowing that we are here to help.
A scenario that requires an emergency dentist is if you experience sudden and severe pain in your gums, teeth or mouth. If you find yourself unable to sleep or function due to pain, an emergency dentist is the only way to solve the problem. Chagger Petrolia dentists can help to diagnose the pain, prescribe the required medications or complete the necessary emergency procedure required to ensure the pain is extinguished. A severely chipped or dislodge adult tooth, as well as severe mouth pain are two cases that require an emergency trip to your dentist. We’re always here to ensure your smile stays bright, healthy and complete!

Invisalign is revolutionizing the way patients straighten their teeth! Traditional braces are made up of uncomfortable metal and elastics, often causing pain and soreness as well as a high-maintenance oral care routine to keep braces free of food and debris. Invisalign is a sharp contrast to the traditional braces of yore. In place an intricate weave of metal wires, Invisalign aligners are sleek plastic moulds that are custom made to fit your teeth and mouth. These re-aligners are designed to gently and softly move your teeth. Over the course of an Invisalign treatment you are fitted with multiple aligners, each one custom designed to shift your teeth to a slightly new position until their ideal alignment is achieved. These custom trays are translucent, making them nearly invisible! Not only are these trays nearly undetectable, they’re also removable! Your Orthodontist will likely instruct you to remove the trays while eating and sleeping. A high maintenance care schedule is no longer required. Your Invisalign trays are simply removed to allow for free teeth brushing and easy cleaning.
Some worry that an Invisalign treatment plan will last longer than the traditional braces treatment; however, this is not the case. Invisalign treatments are dependent on the number of hours worn each day, as well as the extent of realignment required. In some case, an Invisalign treatment can even be shorter than a traditional braces regimen! Ask us if Invisalign is right for you.
First appointments, or dental emergencies, cleanings, maintenance and everything in between, we’re here to provide all your oral care needs. Chagger Dental Petrolia is committed to making the world a friendlier place, one healthy, beautiful smile at a time. Book your appointment today!
