We offer comprehensive dental services for the entire family and for patients of all ages in our Calgary, AB dental office.
Teeth Scaling and Polishing
A professional cleaning helps remove bacteria, tartar, and plaque that are otherwise hard to reach with a toothbrush or floss.
Fluoride is a natural mineral that is topically applied to the tooth surface making it more resistant to decay. As we live in a community where the water district does not fluoridate its water (the Calgary City Council decided in 2011 to cease adjusting the fluoride levels in Calgary water), professional application of dental fluoride is highly recommended.
Oral Cancer Screening
Oral cancer is a disease resulting from abnormal cell growth of tissues inside the mouth. Oral cancer screening during routine dental exams helps with early disease detection and treatment.
A dental sealant is a thin, plastic coating applied to teeth to help prevent cavities. They fill and seal the grooves on the chewing surfaces of “baby” and “adult” molars in children and adolescents to blocks out food particles that could get caught, causing cavities. Fast and comfortable to apply, dental sealants can effectively protect teeth for many years.
We understand dental emergencies are stressful. Our dedicated team makes every effort to provide you with a same-day appointment so that you are promptly cared for. As our patient of records, you will also have access to Dr. Jay’s and Dr. Sophie’s personal numbers for after-hours support. Learn more about same-day dental emergencies in our Calgary AB office.
We provide white fillings that blend with the surrounding tooth structure to give a natural, low-profile appearance.
Root Canal Therapy
Root canal therapy is the cleaning and disinfecting of small channels which run inside the roots of your tooth. Think of it as brushing your tooth from the inside. A root canal therapy is recommended when bacteria has entered the center of the tooth, causing inflammation or infection.
Tooth Extractions and Wisdom Teeth Removal
When a tooth has become unrestorable through decay, periodontal disease, dental trauma or is at risk of causing recurrent infections of the gums, we may recommend having it removed to prevent the spread of the infection to adjacent teeth. At District Family Dental, we make sure to walk you through every step of this procedure so that you are comfortable before, during, and after your extraction.
We offer two levels of sedation to ensure your next visit with us will be a comfortable and enjoyable. Learn more about our dental sedation options.
A mouthguard should be at the top of your child’s list of sports equipment. Our custom-fabricated mouthguards are made to precisely and comfortably fit around your child’s teeth so that they can focus more on the game and less about their smile.
Custom Night Guards
Bruxism, or the act of clenching or grinding can cause headaches, jaw pain, and even teeth damage. Bruxism during sleep has been shown to be especially harmful. Our custom-designed night guard fits precisely around your teeth and can help protect them from fracture and sensitivity.
Dental Laser Therapy
Our laser therapy is a minimally invasive option useful for gum re-sculpting and managing pain from cold or canker sores.
