Dental Exams & Cleanings

At My Dental Clinic in Calgary, we believe preventative dentistry is the best treatment available. For this reason, we urge our patients to schedule routine dental exams and cleanings. This allows us to evaluate your oral health and devise treatment plans in the event you have an issue. Many dental issues could be avoided with proper preventive care.

Oral Examinations

Routine oral examinations are essential for oral health and preventive dentistry. Scheduling routine dental examinations allow your dentist to evaluate overall oral health, oral cancer risk and tooth decay. It also allows us to treat dental issues promptly before they progress to something worse such as an infection. During an oral examination, we typically:

  • Perform an X-Ray Examination
  • Screen for Oral Cancer
  • Evaluate Risk of Gum Disease
  • Examine for Tooth Decay
  • Evaluate Existing Dental Treatments

Dental Cleanings

Regular teeth cleanings are an important part of preventative dentistry. Cleanings are an opportunity to check your teeth for any potential problems, catching them early before they transform into a more painful and complicated oral health issue. During your dental cleaning at our Calgary dental office you can expect:

  • Tartar Removal
  • Removal of Plaque Buildup
  • Polishing of Teeth

Neglecting to visit your dentist for routine dental examinations and oral cleanings can result in a variety of dental issues. Gum disease, cavities, and even oral cancer could slip by, progressing into a far worse problem. We recommend routine examinations and cleanings at least every six months.

Have you neglected your routine dental visits? Maybe you just need a new dentist? If so, contact our Calgary dental clinic and schedule an appointment. We look forward to improving the health of your smile!
