Dental Exams & Cleanings in Calgary

Dental exams promote your oral and general health

We know for most people that going to the dentist isn’t their favourite pastime. That’s why at Alpha Dental Care our dental exams are designed with your comfort in mind.

We offer sedation options to take away any anxiety or stress you may feel and the TV above your chair can also help you tune out the sounds of the clinic.

And don’t worry: our hygienists are always gentle. They will give you the breaks you need, so you can relax your jaw and swallow.

Here’s what you can expect at your dental hygiene visit. We will ...

  • Closely examine your teeth and gums for issues
  • Use a hand scaler and/or ultrasonic scaler to loosen plaque buildup on your teeth
  • Gently brush and floss your teeth
  • Polish your teeth and use a fluoride treatment to strengthen them against decay
  • Discuss the optional use of laser gum contouring or laser therapy to keep your gum line free of dead tissue, prevent “pocketing”, and battle cold sores
We are happy to answer questions you may have about
your dental health, to keep you completely informed
about how best to care for your smile!

Routinely visiting the dentist will help you stay healthy!

Plaque buildup is unavoidable, regardless of how well you maintain your teeth at home, so it’s very important to visit the dentist for regular cleanings and examinations.

We commonly recommend visiting once every 6 months to maintain optimal care, but some patients schedule 3, 4, 9 or 12 month recall appointments depending on their cleaning habits, buildup, and insurance coverage.

Proper oral hygiene not only protects against gum disease and cavities, but can also reduce the risk of related chronic health problems like diabetes and heart disease.  With regular visits we can discover potential problems and help with preventing these issues.

Our hygienists are personable, experienced and accommodating

Our dental hygienists are highly trained and have over 100 years of combined experience!
We know that every person’s needs are unique, so you can be sure that your experience will be personalized to your specific needs and concerns. We ensure this by spending time listening to you and answering your questions.

If your whole family would like to coordinate visits, we can help!  With several hygienists working at the same time, we’d be happy to care for each family member concurrently, requiring only one time slot for all of you.
