At Callingwood Dental Health Centre, we're proud to provide family dentistry for West Edmonton. Our family dentists and team are primarily responsible for removing plaque buildup from the teeth, preventing tooth decay, filling cavities and keeping your gums healthy. We can deliver this personalized care for patients of all ages. From helping your child establish healthy oral habits to exams and teeth cleaning, you can count on our expertise.
We try to accommodate the whole family whether that’s through gum disease treatments, placing fillings, performing root canals, or offering emergency pain relief. Our dental office can offer solutions to sleep apnea as well as create custom mouth guards. Prenatal dental care is also available.
We make family dentistry in West Edmonton a top priority because of its vast importance, especially for children. Children need to practice good oral health care even for their primary teeth. Without the proper care, your child can develop tooth decay and other dental diseases that could plague them for life. Please make sure you're keeping your child's teeth clean until they're old enough to handle this task on their own. Even then, they may still need some prodding to remember to brush and floss twice a day! Additionally, limiting the consumption of foods rich in sugar and starch will benefit both their diet and their teeth as these are common causes of plaque and cavities.
The Importance of Good Oral Health & Hygiene for Adults
Our family dentistry in West Edmonton also includes adults. To keep your mouth healthy and strong as you age, you should brush your teeth at least twice a day and also floss daily. Regular dental checkups are crucial, as your dentist will monitor you for signs of dental problems and try to begin treatment before they get too serious. Tooth decay is more likely to occur as you age because your gums recede and expose vulnerable areas of your teeth. Similarly, gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults because your bones decrease in density. Recent research has shown that the condition of your mouth is linked to your overall health. In fact, dentists are often the first health care professionals to spot signs of diabetes, osteoporosis and heart disease.
