Aside from your regular daily and flossing at home, regular dental examinations and hygiene treatments are essential to helping you keep a vibrant, healthy smile. Our experienced staff can provide preventive care for the entire family, at every stage of life. Preventative care includes thorough examinations, X-rays as needed, hygiene services, oral hygiene instruction, and oral cancer screenings. The goal of preventative dentistry is to help prevent oral disease from forming. With every exam we look for early changes in periodontal and tooth health – this way we can catch a small problem before it develops into a more serious issue.
At Canmore Dental Centre we support the recommendations of the Canadian Dental Association, first tooth, first visit. We encourage parents to book an appointment for a child within 6 months of their first tooth erupting. It is our goal to work in partnership with parents to help a child develop an appreciation for good oral health and to learn the skills needed to attain this goal. With regular dental visits and good habits of morning and evening home care, some children reach adulthood without a single cavity!
Teenagers can be susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease if they have a poor diet and inadequate oral care. At Canmore Dental Centre we take the opportunity at dental appointments to emphasize the importance of lifelong professional and personal care. If your teen or child participates in any contact sport (hockey, soccer, basketball etc.) wearing a custom made mouth guard can help prevent serious tooth and jaw injuries, as well as concussions. Here at Canmore Dental Centre we make comfortable, custom mouth guards with vibrant colours. We encourage regular use, and provide care instructions and a protective case for when it’s not in use. In addition to our preventative services, Canmore Dental Centre is also able to provide Invisalign® teen. Click here for more information on Invisalign®.
Brushing, flossing and regular dental check-ups are building blocks behind a healthy mouth, and an appealing smile. Dr. Maier and his team at Canmore Dental Centre are here to help you maintain your unique smile. We take pride in helping patients maintain their beautiful smile through every stage of life. Whether it’s whitening teeth before a wedding, reinforcing proper oral hygiene during pregnancy, or educating on proper care of baby’s first teeth and gums, as well as regular hygiene and required restorations for a healthy smile, we are here to offer our services. Perhaps you’re ready to enhance your beautiful smile - see our cosmetic page for a few options we offer.
Dr. Daniel Maier and Dr. Siobhan Phillips want to make sure you maintain healthy teeth and gums your entire life. Regular dental exams and proper oral hygiene are important factors in maintaining not just your smile, but overall general health. Gum disease has been linked to systemic and inflammatory diseases including heart and stroke, osteoarthritis, diabetes, cancers, and lung disease. During regular examinations and hygiene appointments we can monitor the health of your gum tissue. We also offer oral cancer screening with velscope, and can recommend treatment options to restore worn dentition or restorations, implants or bridges to replace missing teeth.
We welcome your whole family to our office. Beautiful smiles come from happy patients, we create both! Contact us today for an appointment.
