Root Canal Therapy (Endodontics)
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.
Tooth & Wisdom Tooth Extraction
The extraction of one or more teeth is usually the last option because keeping the natural tooth in place is desirable and ideal.
When do you need a tooth extraction?
While permanent teeth are designed to last a lifetime, tooth extraction may be necessary for a couple of reasons. If a tooth is severely damaged, an extraction may be needed. Other reasons include overcrowded teeth, risk of infection, dental injury, and deep decays.
When do you need a wisdom tooth extraction?
When a tooth is impacted, it cannot fully erupt because the gums have not entirely developed which prevents the tooth from normally coming out. To avoid causing damage to the neighbouring teeth, your Calgary dentist may prescribe extraction of the wisdom tooth as it may develop into cysts if it won’t erupt properly.
