Preventive Dental Care in Calgary
Catching early signs of periodontal disease, plaque buildup and tooth decay is key in maintaining oral hygiene. Here at Inglewood Family Dental, we offer preventive dental care so that families, children and seniors receive the attention they need to tackle tooth and gum conditions at the source.
Services We Offer
Inglewood Family Dental is dedicated to helping our patients in Calgary, Alberta, and the surrounding locations by providing the following preventive dentistry services in Calgary:
Oral Exam Checkups
Inglewood Family Dental begins all new patient relationships with a comprehensive oral examination. Here, our dental team takes a closer look at the teeth and mouth, including factors like biting profiles and jaw strength. Checkups provide us with an overview of a patient’s mouth and give us a chance to identify grinding spots, cavities and levels of tooth sensitivity.
Our staff holds a brief consultation with each patient during a checkup to ensure our system information is up to date. Inglewood Family Dental checkups include:
- Visual assessment of teeth and gums.
- Periodontal evaluation.
- Capturing of dental X-rays.
- Documentation of medical history.
- Plans for children’s tooth development and growth.
- Discussion of oral pain or sudden changes in teeth.
Our staff members take the time to learn your expectations for preventive dentistry and perform in-depth checkups. We want you to be completely satisfied with your smile.
Professional Teeth Cleaning Appointments in Calgary
Brushing your teeth only removes so much after eating and drinking. Having a Calgary dentist professionally clean your teeth helps remove plaque that accumulates between gaps. Inglewood Family Dental uses special tools to clean the teeth and manage plaque before it hardens into tartar.
Our preventive dental care services in southeast Calgary make it easy to schedule teeth cleanings multiple times in one year. We’ll polish your enamel, remove dental calculus that can lead to inflammation and educate you on practices for improved oral hygiene.
Custom Night Guards and Sports Guards
Frequent teeth grinding (also known as Bruxism) is a leading cause of chipping. When you make a preventive dentistry appointment at our Calgary office, we can mold and develop a custom-fit night guard to stop unwanted habits like grinding. These guards separate the upper and lower parts of your mouth to reduce the chances of enamel wear and cracking.
Inglewood Family Dental will also explain your options for athletic mouth guards that work to protect patients of all ages from unexpected incidents. Engage in your favorite sport or activity without fear of a sudden impact from a ball, puck or piece of equipment.
The Benefits of Preventive Dental Care
Preventive dentistry helps you stay in the know about the status of teeth and gums. You only get one set of permanent teeth in your lifetime, so scheduling an appointment with our dental professionals in Calgary promotes solid oral health. Visiting our location at least once each year is effective for the following:
- Catching early signs of gum disease
- Receiving tailored treatments for chronic health conditions
- Boosting confidence and self-esteem
- Potentially saving yourself from costly procedures down the road
