Preventative Dentistry in Calgary
Brushing and flossing at home is a great way to prevent decay and help keep your teeth clean and healthy. Regular oral hygiene appointments are an important part of good dental hygiene. Professional cleaning removes the plaque and tartar that brushing doesn’t reach. It’s also important to have your teeth and mouth examined by a dentist on a regular basis. Regular examinations detect health problems before they have a chance to become serious.
Professional deep cleaning removes plaque and hard-to-remove tartar from your teeth, including above the gumline. We also polish your teeth to keep them free from stains, and we may provide you with fluoride treatment to protect your teeth from future decay.
Dental examination of your teeth, gums, and throat are the best way to detect early signs of trouble such as decay, injury, or infections. This lets us treat these conditions before they become serious. We also screen you for signs of oral cancer, a potentially deadly form of cancer that occurs in the mouth and throat. Early cancer screening helps us treat oral cancer early if cancerous tissues are detected.
