General and preventive dental care services such as oral exams and dental cleanings are the backbones of professional dentistry. Through these services, our team at Pro Grace Dental is able to provide quality care and identify oral health issues early on before they become serious conditions.
Part of a healthy oral health routine includes brushing and flossing every day and seeing your dentist regularly. We offer the following general and preventive dental care services in Calgary.
Oral Exams - Getting regular oral exams every 6 months can help your dental team detect issues in their early stages. Addressing dental problems with the appropriate treatment as soon as possible gives you a better chance at preserving your natural teeth and the health of your gums. An oral exam typically includes a complete assessment of the hard and soft tissues for any damage, pain, or swelling. Your dentist may request an X-ray to detect potential issues such as bone loss, gum recession, decay, and more.
Dental Cleanings - A thorough dental cleaning every 6-12 months helps rid your mouth of harmful plaque and tartar buildup that can lead to cavities. Professional cleanings help reduce your risk of developing periodontal disease and encourage good oral hygiene habits.
Family Dental Care - At Pro Grace Dental, we have the knowledge and experience to care for your entire family’s oral health - from the precious toddler years of rapid teeth development to the senior years that require extra care for preserving natural teeth as much as possible. Our goal is to help your family enjoy healthy teeth and gums for life!
Oral Cancer Screening - Did you know that oral cancer is the 6th most common type of cancer in North America? The good news is, oral cancer can be prevented from progressing through early detection. We recommend starting regular oral cancer screening at 18 years of age at least once a year.
Root Canal Therapy - If you’re suffering from deep decay that has progressed into an infection, root canal therapy is required to save your natural tooth. Many patients have the misconception that this treatment is painful, but advancements in dental technology have made root canal therapy virtually pain-free with minimal discomfort. The process involves removing the infected pulp and bacteria, cleaning and filling the root canal, and sealing it with a porcelain crown for extra protection.
Periodontal Treatment - Periodontal disease is gum disease that has progressed into a more serious condition where the gums are infected, inflamed, bone loss has occurred, and the supportive structures around the teeth are weakened by bacterial infection or trauma. It’s crucial to receive periodontal treatment before more damage happens. Treatments can include scaling and root planing, which can help restore the gums back to health,
Wisdom Tooth Extraction - Whether you’re experiencing wisdom teeth pain or discomfort, or you’d like to remove impacted wisdom teeth before they cause issues, we can help. If the thought of wisdom teeth extraction causes some anxiety, we can discuss sedation options to help the process go as comfortable as possible.
Bad Breath Care - At Pro Grace, our dental team will identify the possible cause of halitosis (bad breath) which can be anything from the foods you eat to gum disease, dry mouth, or other medical conditions. From there, we will recommend a treatment plan and guide you with an oral hygiene routine that will help prevent bad breath.
Tooth-Coloured Fillings - As the name implies, tooth-coloured fillings are designed to blend in with your natural tooth colour. Fillings are done to restore and strengthen teeth that have been damaged by decay. These fillings, in particular, are made of composite resin and are a superior alternative to metal fillings of the past.
At Pro Grace Dentistry, our office is open 7 days a week for your convenience, making it easy to receive the general and preventive dental care services you need. We look forward to serving you!
