Preventive care at Sunridge Dental Clinic can help treat and eliminate problems before they turn into emergencies. Regular exams and cleanings at our experienced dentists near you help you prevent not only tooth decay and periodontal disease but also avoid costly procedures and extra time in the hygiene chair.
Even patients who consistently brush and floss their teeth and practice good oral hygiene need to visit their dentist for checkups. Dental exams and cleanings in Calgary, AB can benefit you in multiple ways:
Dental exams usually take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, depending on your oral and general health status.
Our dentists will use illumination and tactile to examine your teeth and gums for signs of decay, cavities or abscesses. Regular exams can help you seek timely treatment for problems when they are the most treatable.
Digital sensors use fraction of exposure found in traditional x-ray film to capture detailed x-ray images. X-rays are taken to help diagnose cavities, abscesses, fractures, or any other abnormalities in the head/neck area.
We will check your gums for redness, swelling, tenderness or bleeding. Untreated gum disease can lead to tooth loss and systemic diseases like stroke and heart disease.
Early oral cancer detection can increase the chances of recovery. Our dentists will examine the tissues of your mouth including your gums, cheeks, lips, tongue, and jaw. If we suspect any unusual changes in your mouth tissues, we may suggest a biopsy and microscopic analysis by a qualified lab. There may be other non-cancerous lesions in your mouth from oral warts to autoimmune lesions. Dentists at Sunridge Dental Clinic will use their oral pathology knowledge and evaluate any abnormalities and determine if they should monitor it or remove it. Oral cancer can afflict anyone although tobacco users put themselves at a higher risk. At Sunridge Dental Clinic we have a program to help support you if you’re determined to quit using tobacco.
