New Patients Welcome
When you visit our Calgary dental office for general dental services, it allows us to offer you the best possible preventative care. This often translates to fewer dental health issues and a better overall quality of life for our patients. Our dental team looks forward to seeing you regularly!
Oral Exams & New Patient Exams
Routine exams allow us to take a proactive approach to your oral health and hygiene. When you maintain regular appointments every year, our dental team can stay on top of any oral health issues that may arise and prevent them from developing into more serious conditions. Remember, prevention is always more comfortable and affordable than restoration!
Dental Hygiene Appointments
Proper oral hygiene is easy to achieve when you make regular dental hygiene appointments at Tuscany Dental Centre. We recommend visiting us once every six months for the best possible care. The friendly and experienced dental hygienists at Tuscany Dental Centre are happy to help you with tools and techniques that can help you keep your teeth and gums healthy, so be sure to ask us if you have any questions about at-home care.
When the gums are affected by moderate to severe gum disease, it sometimes causes the gums to recess (shrink back from the teeth). This can cause the sensitive roots and nerves of the teeth to become exposed, often resulting in pain and discomfort. It can also destabilize the teeth, making tooth loss more likely. In these cases, our dental team can perform a simple gum graft procedure in our offices to restore the gum line. We transfer healthy gum tissue from another area of your mouth to the affected areas, leaving you with healthy gums.
Oral Cancer Screening
Your oral health is closely linked to your overall health and wellbeing. At Tuscany Dental Centre, we care deeply about our patients’ healthy futures, which is why oral cancer screening is a regular part of every dental checkup. Our dentists will gently feel your cheeks, lips, jawline, and neck to check for abnormalities. We may also use a simple dental tool called the VELscope, which shines a blue light into your mouth to check for changes to the tissues.
At Tuscany Dental Centre, we use digital radiography (x-rays) to take detailed images of your teeth and mouth. These images can show wisdom teeth, cavities, and bone loss that can’t be seen in a regular visual dental examination. They are essential in the diagnosis of dental issues such as cavities, tooth removal, and orthodontic alignment. We also use x-rays to plan treatments, such as root canals.
If you are experiencing tooth pain, you may require a root canal procedure. The goal of root canal treatment is to save a tooth that might otherwise require extraction. We often recommend root canal procedures to correct an apparent problem, or occasionally an unapparent, undiagnosed, or hidden problem. Our dentists are highly experienced in performing root canal procedures in our Calgary dental office.
Although the main goal of dentistry is to keep your natural teeth healthy and strong, there are some circumstances in which it makes sense to remove a tooth or multiple teeth. For example, if a tooth root is badly infected and cannot be treated with a root canal, our dental team may recommend having the tooth extracted. Our dentists perform tooth extractions right here in our dental clinic in Northwest Calgary to help keep your dental care convenient, affordable, and comfortable.
