Oral Health Information

Exams & Cleaning

A dental exam helps the dentist gain information on exactly what could be going on in your mouth. It will be completed by your dentist, and new patients to any clinic will definitely undergo an exam. The dentist and hygienist work together to complete a comprehensive investigation giving the best picture of your dental health. At regular check-up exams, your dentist and hygienist will perform the following:

  • Examination of diagnostic X-rays (radiographs): Essential for detection of decay, tumors, cysts, and bone loss.  X-rays also help determine tooth and root positions.
  • Oral cancer screening: Check the face, neck, lips, tongue, throat, tissues, and gums for any signs of oral cancer.
  • Gum disease evaluation: Check the gums and bone around the teeth for any signs of periodontal disease.
  • Examination of tooth decay: All tooth surfaces will be checked for decay with special dental instruments./li>
  • Examination of existing restorations: Check current fillings, crowns, etc.

Professional Dental Cleaning

Dental cleanings are always performed by a Registered Dental Hygienist and will include a dental exam by the dentist.

We are proud to be one of the first few clinics not only in Calgary, but across Canada, to offer Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) as our standard  method of hygiene cleaning.

GBT uses a new technology, EMS Airflow, that reduces the need for traditional hand tool scraping and messy polishes, providing a more comfortable way of cleaning. The combination of warm water, air and soft cleaning powder is more gentle to the teeth, gums, and soft tissues, making it efficient and effective. 

This new gentle cleaning process is suitable for people with braces, crowns, bridges, veneers, and implants alike.

The process will allow you less time in the chair in the short-run, and fewer visits to the clinic in the long-run.
