Routine Dental Examinations in Northwest Calgary
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!
What to Expect During a Dental Examination
During your routine dental examination, your dentist will assess your whole mouth for any signs of early dental issues. Using our tools and experience, we will look for signs of changes to the teeth, roots, and soft tissues of the mouth. Our dentists will take the opportunity to check for plaque and tartar on your teeth, as well as any issues with your gums. Plaque and tartar cannot be removed by brushing alone, which is why we combine professional dental hygiene appointments with examinations to remove any tartar that has built up.
The Benefits of Regular Dental Examinations
One of the main benefits of regular dental examinations is that we can spot and treat tooth decay quickly before it becomes a problem. When left untreated for a long period of time, tooth decay can lead to cavities, infections in the roots of the teeth, and may even lead to tooth loss. At these appointments, you can also ask our dental team about any issues you are experiencing (such as sensitivity) and receive professional advice, tools, and strategies to keep your mouth comfortable and healthy.

Preventing Gum Disease and Tooth Decay
Preventing gum disease is essential in maintaining your overall oral health. When gum disease is left untreated, it can become severe, causing pain, bleeding, abscesses, and even tooth loss. Our dental hygienists and dentists will assess the condition of your gums and determine if there are early signs of gum disease. If we have any concerns, we will provide tips, tools, and techniques to prevent and deal with gum disease. Whether or not you have gum disease, regular visits to our dental hygienists can help you keep it at bay.
