Check-Ups & Cleanings
The general rule is to visit your dentist every six months to maintain optimal oral health. Check-ups and cleanings are essential to keep your teeth and gums healthy and to avoid plaque build-up that may lead to serious oral health complications. Aside from the oral issues that neglected teeth may cause, they can also be a financial burden later on. As cliche as it may sound, prevention is always better than cure.
At Chaparral Smiles Dental, your Calgary dentists are dedicated to providing patients with comprehensive oral exams, thorough cleanings, as well as fluoride treatments if necessary. Our dentists in Calgary will remove any plaque that has accumulated on the teeth with specialized equipment.
Night Guards / Sports Guards
Playing sports is a hobby that most people have. When an individual plays in full-contact sports like basketball, martial arts, soccer, etc., your Calgary dentist will most likely recommend the use of sports guards to protect the mouth from a dental injury. In this way, any tooth damage that may occur as a result of an unfortunate sports accident can be prevented. On the other hand, night guards are designed to protect the teeth from grinding during sleep. Night guards can safeguard your teeth from the wear and tear of constant grinding. Although night guards do not completely stop you from clenching or grinding your teeth, they can help you avoid the damage that comes with them. We provide custom-made mouthguards that you can use in times of need to protect the teeth from injury.
Tooth-coloured fillings bring good durability and fracture resistance. Your Calgary dentist will eliminate the decayed part of the tooth and then “fill” that area on the tooth where the decayed material once resided to treat the cavity. After the decay has been extracted, our dentist will thoroughly clean the cavity of bacteria and debris in preparation for the filling. Furthermore, tooth-coloured fillings are virtually invisible and can also be used to restore cracked or fractured teeth, as well as teeth that have been damaged due to teeth grinding and nail-biting.
Oral Cancer Screening
Here at Chaparral Smiles Dental, we care not only for your smile but for your overall health as well. We follow a comprehensive approach to your dental treatment which includes oral cancer screening as part of your routine oral exam. Oral cancer is curable and less costly if early signs are detected. Moreover, the survival rate is very high once your Calgary dentist has identified symptoms of oral cancer. This can save you a lot of time, give you faster and desirable outcomes, and minimize your expenses for the treatment.
