Providing a Welcoming Environment for Young Patients
We understand that a visit to the dentist can be stressful, especially for young children. Our goal is to make your child’s experience as relaxing as possible. By engaging your child with our gentle chairside manner and explaining treatments in easy-to-follow language, we help set their mind at ease and make the experience as enjoyable as we can.
To better serve your Calgary family, our dentist even offers one or two kids’ days per year, focusing solely on the dental needs of our youngest patients. We provide exams and checkups to ensure that your child’s smile is developing healthily during this event. Our team dresses up in fun, themed costumes, and we give out goodie bags and other treats throughout the day. This event is an excellent way to introduce your child to our team or reinforce the idea that they have nothing to fear from visiting the dentist!
How Does My Child Benefit From a Visit to the Dentist?
When it comes to our youngest patients, our primary focus is on checking that your child’s teeth, gums, and jaws are healthy and developing correctly. Our dentist begins seeing patients at six months old or once they’ve developed their first tooth. In addition to thorough checkups and gentle cleanings, our Calgary dental services for families include:
A pulpotomy is a treatment we use to save an infected or decayed tooth. During a pulpotomy, the infection and tooth’s organic material (pulp) are carefully removed. This procedure aims to preserve the afflicted tooth and prevent the infection from spreading to the gums and surrounding areas of the mouth. A pulpotomy is typically performed on a baby tooth since it leaves the root structure intact and able to grow.
We use fillings to help treat cavities and protect vulnerable or damaged teeth. After performing a pulpotomy to remove infected material from a tooth, a filling seals the area and prevents recurring problems.
A frenectomy allows our team to correct a tongue or lip tie. If left untreated, these conditions may inhibit the ability to drink, eat, and speak clearly. During a frenectomy, our dentist carefully separates the soft tissue (frenum) that’s causing the problem, thus restoring your child’s smile.
Building a Foundation of Excellent Oral Health for Teens
Keeping up with routine exams and cleanings as your child grows older is critical to preserving their smile. Exams at our office include cancer screenings using VELscope® technology and visual inspections of your teeth and gums. We also use an intraoral camera to detect signs of decay or cracks that may not be visible to the naked eye. In addition to removing built-up plaque on your teen’s gums and teeth, we offer suggestions on dental techniques and tools they can use at home to protect their oral health.
We’re committed to enhancing the appearance, longevity, and healthiness of every patient’s smile through education and efficient dental work. If your teen plays a high-contact sport, we can craft them a comfortable, custom-fitted sportsguard to protect them during games. At each visit, we evaluate their bite to check that their teeth are properly aligned. If we notice anything out of the ordinary, we may refer you to a trusted orthodontist for a second opinion.
Shaping Your Smile as an Adult
Invisalign is a non-invasive orthodontic alternative to traditional metal braces. During an Invisalign treatment, you receive a series of precisely-fitted plastic trays. As you progress through the series of aligners, your teeth gradually shift, fixing minor-to-moderate bite and alignment issues. We offer Invisalign to responsible teens and adults.
We offer several restorations to repair cracked, decayed, or fractured teeth. A crown surrounds the visible portions of an afflicted tooth to protect it from future damage. Dental bridges use a combination of replacement teeth and crowns to preserve your dental alignment by filling gaps. We can also use dentures to replace an entire arch of teeth with natural-looking, functional prosthetics.
Prompt root canal therapy can save a substantially decayed or infected tooth. Our dentist removes the infected material and seals the tooth with a filling or crown to reduce the risk of recurring problems.
If you have a tooth that cannot be saved with root canal therapy, an extraction may be necessary to preserve your oral health. We perform simple extractions in-office and refer you to a skilled oral surgeon to remove impacted teeth.
Continuing Care for Our Community's Seniors
As you mature into adulthood, it’s essential to maintain excellent oral hygiene and keep up with regular cleanings. Contrary to popular belief, losing teeth does not inevitably occur as you grow older! Keeping your teeth and gums clean and healthy is crucial to preserve your smile for as long as possible.
Many seniors are disproportionately impacted by periodontal (gum) disease, which is a leading cause of tooth loss. We offer prompt treatments for gum disease using our state-of-the-art diode laser. If caught quickly enough, it may be possible to reverse the damage caused by periodontal disease. Stay alert for symptoms such as:
- Swollen gums
- Constant bleeding when brushing or flossing
- Pain while eating
- Loose teeth
- A persistent toothache
If you notice these symptoms in yourself or a member of your family, our dentist can evaluate your gum health and help you explore options for treatment.
