Regular oral exams and cleanings are the cornerstone of good dental health. Not only does this let us learn more about you, but potential problems can be noticed much earlier. We welcome new patients and those that haven't been to the clinic for a while to conveniently schedule an appointment online.
To make every oral exam and cleaning a better experience for patients, we've made it much more comfortable. Watch TV overhead, lay back on a soft pillow and pull up a blanket. We also have massage chairs available.
When you visit our Calgary dental clinic, we care about your overall health. Our experienced hygienists will chat with you to get a snapshot of your health status, while they also:
You can also ask your hygienist any questions you have about your oral health during your visit. They will take the time to listen, discuss your options with you, and either Dr. Verma, Dr. Kulshrestha or Dr. Dowsett will stop in to see how you're doing.
What you eat and drink also plays a major role in oral health, which is why our staff will also talk with you about your diet. There may be some foods or drinks you eat regularly and don't realize are damaging your teeth. Your dentist or hygienist can help you identify and mitigate that damage.
Reducing pain is a priority for every appointment. Our hygienists use ultrasonic scalers and gentle hand scalers to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth, and can apply a numbing gel or local anaesthetic before they begin.
When you receive regular professional cleanings, your dental health can improve. But there are simple things you can do in between cleanings to prevent problems, like brushing twice per day and flossing once per day. Our hygienists can advise you on the optimal ways to prevent future oral health problems or minimize the impact of current ones.
Your dental insurance will likely cover oral exams and professional cleanings to promote preventative health. If you aren't certain whether your insurance will cover an exam, or how much is covered, call us today or schedule a complimentary consultation to discuss this with us.
