When you need teeth cleaning in NW Calgary, Dentrix Dental Care is the place to go! One of the pesky things about our teeth is the speed at which plaque builds up, even with regular cleanings. The bacteria that cause plaque start to build up again within 24 to 48 hours of your teeth cleaning, even if you are a great brusher and flosser! That’s why it’s important to see your dental hygienist every six months to clean out all that plaque and start over.
In addition, your hygienist and your dentist will take note of many things about your teeth during your cleaning—their general condition, their vulnerability to decay, the health of your gums, and much more. Seeing your hygienist regularly is the best prevention for dental problems down the road. To get your teeth cleaned in NW Calgary, come in and see us at Dentrix Dental Care.
Fillings are often necessary when a dentist needs to help strengthen a damaged tooth. Filling a tooth both strengthens the tooth and keeps harmful bacteria from spreading to other teeth from a cavity. Our dentists will be happy to work with you to determine if a filling is the best option for your needs.
Extractions are sometimes necessary for patients, whether it’s a tooth that has begun to rot and gone too far to restore, or it’s a wisdom tooth beginning to erupt and crowd out other teeth. Our practice can extract teeth as needed, and we even offer sedation dentistry to make sure the process is as easy on you as possible.
Every tooth in your mouth right now contains a dental pulp, holding the veins, nerves and lymph vessels of the tooth. Beneath that are the root canals, and sometimes this system of soft tissue can succumb to infection. When that happens, patients can feel quite a bit of pain when they eat or drink, and be extra sensitive to temperature. We offer root canal therapy when that happens, to relieve your pain and make you feel healthy again.
Oral Cancer Screening
It can be easy to overlook or ignore the warning signs of oral cancer, but it’s quickly become one of the most common kinds of cancer in Canada. Screenings for oral cancer are simple, and can be done by a qualified dentist. Regular oral cancer screenings can help ensure that you stay healthy, and any potential problems are caught early.
At Dentrix Dental Care, we understand that sometimes General Dentistry needs arise outside of business hours. To provide for our patients around the clock, our emergency dentist in NW Calgary is available whenever you come across a dental emergency.
When trauma happens to your teeth, it’s important to come to see a dentist as soon as possible. Whether a tooth has been knocked out entirely, pushed out of alignment or fractured, it’s important to see your dentist quickly to ensure that the appropriate treatment is taken.
