General & Family care
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 Bow River 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
Sports are a hobby that most people have. If a person plays full contact sports such as basketball, martial arts, and football, your Calgary dentist will recommend the use of sports guards to protect the mouth from dental injuries therefore prevent the edge of any tooth damage that may result from a tragic sports accident. On the other hand, night guards are designed to protect your teeth from grinding while you sleep. Night guards can protect your teeth from wear and tear and constant grinding. While night guards may not completely stop you from grinding or grinding your teeth, they can help you avoid the damage they cause. We offer customized solutions that you can use to protect your teeth from injury in times of need.
Tooth-coloured fillings bring good durability and fracture resistance. Your NW 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. Once the decay is removed, our dentist will thoroughly clean the bacteria and debris in preparation for implants. 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 Bow River Dental, we care not only for your smile but for your overall health as well. We follow a comprehensive approach to dental care that includes screening for oral cancer as part of your routine oral examinations. Oral cancer is treatable and cost-effective once the early symptoms are detected. Also, once your Calgary dentist recognizes the signs of oral cancer, the survival rate is very high. This is less time consuming, gives you faster and more desirable results, and reduces treatment costs.
