Our Preventive Dentistry Services

Our dentists are here to help with preventive dentistry services – from children’s first visits to advice about oral health and gum disease treatment. No matter what, we are here to help you take proper care of your teeth and gums!

Our most important preventive dentistry services are:

  • Regular checkups, which include a detailed oral exam. The routine checkup shows the early signs of many dental and other health issues. Scheduling the appointments often prevents your problems from becoming severe and keeps your teeth strong. At the very least, every dentist recommends visits at least once a year.

  • Dental Hygiene Treatment includes detailed cleaning of your teeth gums and mouth. Our Hygienists typically take their time to individually eliminate plaque and tartar around your gum line, as well as in between your teeth. 

  • X-rays, keep in mind that X-rays are also considered preventive. This type of screening can show whether you have gum issues or if there is a need for a root canal or if you’ve had any prolonged negative changes to your oral health.

For children, your chosen dentist can do so much more. The dentist can help your child develop good dental habits and determine if your child might have a health condition based on the state of their teeth and gums. Also, our dentist can refer your family to an orthodontist if your child has crooked teeth or needs a mouthguard.

We advise parents with children as young as two years of age to take their child to the dentist for a first visit. An X-ray can determine that everything is developing as it should, and it only takes a couple of minutes!

The Heart of Oral Health: Beyond the Smile

Oral Health’s Broader Impact:

  • Advanced gum disease isn’t just about the mouth. Certain bacteria associated with it can affect the heart, leading to conditions that jeopardize overall health.
  • Diabetes can be both a cause and an effect. It’s a risk factor for bone and tooth loss, but poor oral health can also be a precursor to diabetes.

The Diabetes, Genetics, and Gum Disease Connection:

  • Genetics play a pivotal role in our susceptibility to certain conditions, including gum disease.
  • Diabetes and gum disease can be intertwined, with one exacerbating the other.

The Importance of Regular Dental Hygiene:

  • Brushing, flossing, and regular dental check-ups are crucial. They help detect potential health concerns early on.
  • Good oral practices not only preserve the health of your teeth but can also enhance your overall lifestyle.

Medications & Chronic Conditions:

  • For those diagnosed with conditions like diabetes, medications are vital to manage and control these issues.
  • Regular check-ups, be it monthly or yearly, can help monitor and control oral problems that might arise due to systemic conditions.

The Dentist-Physician Duo:

  • The bond between your dentist and physician is paramount. Together, they can provide a holistic approach to your health.

    • Early detection is key. Understanding and addressing issues early on can prevent complications in the future.

Preventative Dentistry: Tips & Tricks

Dental Care At Home

Your chosen dentist at Glenwood Dental Care can help you achieve good dental hygiene and a healthy smile during your dental visit. However, healthier teeth start with you doing proper dental care at home and having good oral hygiene.

Optimal oral hygiene can reduce the risk of gum disease, gingivitis, enamel loss, periodontitis, enamel wear, and root canals in the future. For excellent dental health care, you will need to:

  • Brush your teeth daily in the morning and evening at the very least. Ask your Glenwood dentist to recommend a good brush for daily brushing to remove plaque.
  • Floss regularly to avoid bad breath and other dental problems.
  • Rinse with mouthwash to remove bacteria and maintain healthy gums.
  • Avoid eating acidic foods, as they can damage the tooth surface – stick to a balanced diet to avoid getting health issues.
  • Limit sugary foods and hard foods which can chip teeth.
  • Use a mouthguard when playing certain sports to keep your teeth and gums safe.
  • Consider getting a night mouth guard if you sometimes grind your teeth at night – poor oral hygiene can damage teeth, but so can teeth grinding.

Most importantly, schedule your preventive dentistry appointments at regular intervals determined by your dentist at Glenwood Dental Care.

Kind words from our Patients

My first visit at Glenwood Dental Care was great! All the staff I encountered on my visit were professional, friendly, caring and took their time to get to know me while providing excellent dental service!

— Meriam M.

Dr. Gao is awesome. Im very impressed with the care she provided on my first day. She explained details to me that my previous dentist did not do, now I have better understanding with what’s going on with my teeth. I would highly recommend coming to this dental clinic 👍

— Tricia A. 

I’ve been going to Glenwood Dental Care for 2 years and can’t say enough good things about them. Dr Gao and her team maintain a professional yet relaxed atmosphere in their office which sure lowered any apprehension I had about dental visits. My questions and concerns are addressed, the appointments are well coordinated and they communicate directly with insurance companies. I’ll definitely continue to use them for my dental work.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have any more questions about your oral health? We’re here to give you a hand. Don’t hesitate to contact our office or book your appointment below to meet with one of our family dentists in Edmonton. 

Our office follows the Alberta Dental Fee Guide. We’ve created the following chart which highlights the most common prices for dental treatment in Edmonton. We want to ensure that we are completely transparent and open about how much we charge for each of the treatment options available at our office.

It really depends on each patient! Typically we recommend that adult patients visit a dentist once or twice a year, even if your mouth is in good condition. This way, you can get your teeth professionally cleaned regularly and maintain excellent oral health.

The most common concerns patients see us for are toothaches — that’s because pain is a way for your body to tell you that something isn’t right. Under the surface, there could be a lot going on. You could be dealing with a variety of dental issues such as decay, gum disease, cracked or worn teeth, or an abscess. We also often help those who have lost or broken a tooth. Before you start overthinking your dental emergency, book your next dental appointment with one of our family dentists today!

If you’re feeling uncomfortable, you should always visit a dentist. Even if the pain does go away after a few days, it’s likely there’s an issue hidden under the surface that should be checked by a dental professional so that it doesn’t linger and continue getting worse. 

The Canadian Dental Association recommends the assessment of infants, by a dentist, within 6 months of the eruption of the first tooth or by one year of age. This helps one of our family-friendly dentists catch potential problems that can affect your child’s overall health and well-being as more teeth grow in overtime.

Yes, we do! If you’re looking for a new, family-friendly dentist in West Edmonton, please don’t hesitate to book your appointment today! We would be more than happy to help guide you on the right treatment solution for your oral health needs.

We’re ready to help answer any additional questions you may have. Please don’t hesitate to contact our office today!
