Preventative Dentistry in Calgary, AB

Unfortunately, too many patients wait till they are experiencing dental pain before reaching out to their dentist. By this point, your dentist can only perform treatments to fix the issue. However, many treatments are highly effective at preventing issues or stopping a dental problem before it blossoms into a much larger problem. Many preventive measures are very affordable and can help our patients save a lot of money by not needing more intensive procedures later.

  • Dental Cleaning/Check-Up –the most straightforward and best way to prevent dental issues is through your biannual checkups and cleanings. With consistent visits, your dentist can identify any issues by noticing the changes from one visit to the next. Additionally, we can remove any built-up plaque and tartar that can be nearly impossible to remove at home, thus helping you to prevent cavities.
  • Dental Sealants – sealants are proven to reduce the number of cavities that occur in molars. Through the application of a thin and clear coating, the areas of the tooth most susceptible to cavities are entirely covered and protected. While this does not guarantee that cavities will not occur, it is one of the best ways to prevent cavities. This treatment is beneficial for both children and adults.
  • Mouth Guards – bruxism is the involuntary grinding of the teeth while sleeping and many suffer from it. This can lead to teeth getting ground down, fractures, chips and even TMJ. A custom mouth guard can help relax the jaw while sleeping and prevent damage from happening to the teeth due to the chronic night grinding.
