Although your teeth may seem strong, they’re vulnerable to damage from impacts or grinding. We provide custom night appliances and sports guards to keep your teeth safe.</p> <h2>Bite Appliances</h2> <p>Night, or bite, appliances are devices that prevent nighttime grinding. Grinding, also called bruxism, can slowly wear down the enamel on your teeth, and it can also push them out of alignment. By holding your jaws firmly in the correct position, the bite appliance prevents you from grinding your teeth while you sleep. The appliances are designed to fit the contours of your mouth comfortably, so they don’t interfere with your sleep.</p> <h2>Sports Guards</h2> <p>Impact to your mouth or head can cause serious injury to your teeth. Damage can come from a direct impact, but it can also occur indirectly if you fall down or collide with another player. Sports guards absorb the impact and protect your teeth from being injured.</p> <p>Call us today to learn more about our sports guards and appliances, or to book a fitting.</p> </div></div> Mon, 09 Mar 2020 19:53:40 +0000 admin 57 at https://www.coredental.ca Preventative Dentistry in Calgary https://www.coredental.ca/services/preventative-dentistry-calgary <span>Preventative Dentistry in Calgary</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">admin</span></span> <span>Wed, 10/23/2019 - 13:32</span> <div><div class="maincontentbox"> <div class="row"> <div class="col-12"> <h1 class="display-4 mb-2"></h1> <p class="display-5 mb-2">Did you know that your teeth can be at risk of decay even if you brush and floss regularly? Plaque and tartar can build up on your teeth, including above the gumline, where they can only be removed using special tools. Regular professional cleaning and dental examinations are an essential part of your dental health routine.</p> <h2>Oral Hygiene</h2> <p>Tartar buildup provides an ideal place for decay-causing bacteria to grow and spread. Because tartar can only be removed with special tools (it’s harder than bone), it’s important to have your teeth regularly cleaned by a dental hygienist. During an oral hygiene appointment, your hygienist will remove tartar and plaque buildup from your teeth. They’ll also polish your teeth to remove stains and may recommend fluoride treatment to protect your enamel against decay.</p> <h2>Dental Exam</h2> <p>Regular dental exams let us spot early signs of trouble before they become serious. We’ll examine your mouth for signs of decay and infection, injury, or other health issues. We’ll also conduct an oral cancer screening to detect early signs of this dangerous form of cancer.</p> <p><a href="/node/54" class="contactlink">Contact our office to book a preventative dentistry appointment today. </a></p> <h2 class="videoheader">Related Videos</h2> <div class="row mb-2"> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-0 mt-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/preventative/brushing"></div></div> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-0 mt-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/preventative/flossing"></div></div> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-0 mt-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/preventative/electric_toothbrush"></div></div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> Wed, 23 Oct 2019 18:32:23 +0000 admin 53 at https://www.coredental.ca Sedation Dentistry in Calgary https://www.coredental.ca/services/sedation-dentistry-calgary <span>Sedation Dentistry in Calgary</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">admin</span></span> <span>Wed, 10/23/2019 - 13:30</span> <div><div class="maincontentbox"> <div class="row"> <div class="col-12"> <h1 class="display-4 mb-2"></h1> <p class="display-5 mb-2">Many people experience anxiety during a visit to the dentist. In extreme cases, the anxiety can be so severe it prevents people from seeking dental care.</p> <p class="display-5 mb-2">Sedation dentistry can help. We can provide you with a mild to moderate sedative before your treatment to help you manage your anxiety and stay calm during your appointment.</p> <h2>Oral Sedation</h2> <p>Oral conscious sedation is an excellent option for anxious patients. We can prescribe an oral sedative that you take prior to your appointment. The sedative will help you enter a relaxed and calm state of mind. You will be only slightly aware of your dental treatment and will not experience any pain. The sedative effect may last for some time after your appointment so you need to arrange transportation home.</p> <p>Oral sedatives produce a moderate level of sedation. Most patients are unaware of their treatment and have very little retained memory. The sedative effect can take some time to wear off, however, and you will require a drive home from our office.</p> <h2>Nitrous Oxide</h2> <p>Known more commonly as laughing gas, nitrous oxide has been used as a dental sedative for over 100 years. It produces a mild state of relaxation that helps you stay calm during your treatment. The effects wear off very quickly, and you will be able to drive home after your appointment.</p> <p>To learn more about sedation and other ways we can assist with anxiety, contact us today.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> Wed, 23 Oct 2019 18:30:23 +0000 admin 52 at https://www.coredental.ca Endodontics in Calgary https://www.coredental.ca/services/endodontics-calgary <span>Endodontics in Calgary</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">admin</span></span> <span>Wed, 10/23/2019 - 13:27</span> <div><div class="maincontentbox"> <div class="row"> <div class="col-12"> <h1 class="display-4 mb-2"></h1> <p class="display-5 mb-2">When the inner tissue of a tooth (the pulp) is exposed through injury or decay, it becomes vulnerable to infection. The infection can spread from the tooth to the surrounding tissues, which will eventually weaken the tooth and cause it to be lost.</p> <p>Root canal treatment preserves a damaged tooth by removing the pulp and preventing infection.</p> <h2>How does root canal treatment work?</h2> <p>To remove the pulp, we drill a tiny hole in the tooth being treated. The pulp is removed, and the inside of the tooth is sanitized to prevent infection. Once the root canal is complete, we seal the tooth with a filling. Then the tooth can be restored and protected with a dental crown.</p> <h2>Aren’t root canals painful?</h2> <p>Thanks to modern technology, root canal therapy is no more painful than having a tooth filled. The procedure is performed under local anesthetic. Many patients experience little to no pain during or after root canal treatment.</p> <p>If you’ve damaged a tooth, or if you’re suffering from severe toothache, call our office to make an appointment.</p> <h2 class="videoheader">Related Videos</h2> <div class="row mb-2"> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-0 mt-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/decay/root_canal"></div></div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> Wed, 23 Oct 2019 18:27:44 +0000 admin 51 at https://www.coredental.ca Periodontics in Calgary https://www.coredental.ca/services/periodontics-calgary <span>Periodontics in Calgary</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">admin</span></span> <span>Wed, 10/23/2019 - 13:24</span> <div><div class="maincontentbox"> <div class="row"> <div class="col-12"> <h1 class="display-4 mb-2"></h1> <p class="display-5 mb-2">Periodontics is the branch of dentistry that is concerned with your gums and the tissues that support your teeth. We provide services to prevent infections and discomfort resulting from periodontal issues.</p> <h2>Frenectomy</h2> <p>The attachments between your lips and your gums, or beneath your tongue, are called frenula. Sometimes the frenula can be too tight, and it can cause discomfort and other issues. We treat this by cutting the tissue to relieve the tension.</p> <h2>Scaling and Root Planing</h2> <p>Scaling and root planing are treatments for gum infections and disease. Scaling is the removal of plaque and tartar from the teeth, including above the gum line. Root planing is a procedure where we smooth the surface of the tooth roots to reduce areas where plaque can build up and cause irritation to your gums.</p> <h2>Extractions</h2> <p>The goal in dentistry is to preserve your natural teeth, but sometimes it becomes necessary to extract a tooth to protect your other teeth. Extraction can be needed if a tooth become impacted or is at risk of impaction, if your teeth are crowded, or if a tooth is badly damaged or decayed. When a damaged tooth is extracted, we will recommend options to replace the tooth, such as a dental bridge or an implant.</p> <p><a href="/node/54" class="contactlink">Regular checkups are important for keeping your gums healthy.

The veneers are custom-made to suit your individual smile, and they are shaped and shaded to give you the smile you need. Veneers can also be used to cover up discoloured, chipped, or misshapen teeth.</p> <h2>Lumineers</h2> <p>Lumineers are ultra-thin veneers that can be placed without altering the enamel of your teeth and without the need for local anesthetic.</p> <h2>Contouring and Bonding</h2> <p>Dental contouring and bonding are methods we use to change the appearance of individual teeth. Contouring involves removing tiny amounts of enamel from a tooth to change its shape or to remove staining or chips, and bonding involves adding a special dental resin to repair chips, cover stains, or reshape a tooth.</p> <p>Because they are fast and affordable, contouring and bonding are a cost-effective option to make changes to your smile without using veneers.</p> <h2>Ceramic Crowns</h2> <p>Ceramic cosmetic crowns are used to totally replace a tooth. They are used when the tooth cannot be reshaped with veneers or contouring and bonding. Cosmetic crowns are made from a high-quality ceramic material that resembles your natural teeth. We offer same-day crowns which can be designed and placed in a single appointment.</p> <p><a href="/node/54" class="contactlink">To learn more about our cosmetic procedures or to make an appointment, contact us today.</a></p> <h2 class="videoheader">More Related Videos</h2> <div class="row"> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-0 mt-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="cosmetic/procedures/veneers"></div></div> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-0 mt-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/cosmetic/home_whitening"></div></div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> Wed, 23 Oct 2019 18:13:41 +0000 admin 48 at https://www.coredental.ca Dental Restoration in Calgary https://www.coredental.ca/services/dental-restoration-calgary <span>Dental Restoration in Calgary</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">admin</span></span> <span>Wed, 10/23/2019 - 13:10</span> <div><div class="maincontentbox"> <div class="row"> <div class="col-12"> <h1 class="display-4 mb-2"></h1> <p class="display-5 mb-2">Dental restorations treat issues that affect the health, function, and appearance of your teeth.

Left untreated, cavities can grow larger and cause complications such as discomfort or infection. Fillings are used to repair cavities and restore the health and integrity of your teeth. Tooth-coloured fillings also restore the appearance of your tooth.</p> <h2>Crowns</h2> <p>Dental crowns are used to completely restore a tooth that has been seriously damaged. The crowns are made of a porcelain or ceramic material that is designed to resemble your other natural teeth. Once it’s in place, your crown will feel and look natural and it will restore the function and appearance of your missing tooth.</p> <p>We provide same-day crowns that can be produced and placed in a single appointment.</p> <h2>Inlays & Onlays</h2> <p>If a cavity affects the chewing surface of one of your molars, or if the damage to a tooth doesn’t require a dental crown, we may recommend an inlay or onlay to restore the tooth.</p> <p>The inlay or onlay is designed in a dental laboratory and cemented into place in the tooth being treated. If we’re restoring the biting surfaces of the tooth, we’ll use an onlay, which is designed to withstand the extreme forces of biting and chewing.</p> <p>Inlays and onlays are made of tooth-coloured porcelain or ceramic so they will blend in with your smile once they are in place.</p> <h2>Bridges</h2> <p>If you are missing teeth, a dental bridge may be a good replacement solution for you. Dental bridges provide a replacement tooth, or teeth, plus they also strengthen and hold your remaining adjacent natural teeth in their proper positions.</p> <p>The bridge consists of one, or more, artificial teeth that are attached to your existing natural teeth. The replacement teeth are designed to look like your natural teeth, and they are shaded to blend in with your smile.</p> <p>We can provide same-day bridges using our in-office CEREC system.</p> <p><a href="/node/54" class="contactlink">If you have a damaged or missing tooth, call us today to make an appointment.</a></p> <h2 class="videoheader">More Related Videos</h2> <div class="row"> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-0 mt-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/decay/about"></div></div> <div class="col-sm-4 col-12 mt-sm-0 mt-2"><div class="optio-thumbnail" data-video-id="dentistry/cusp/crown_lengthening"></div></div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> Wed, 23 Oct 2019 18:10:36 +0000 admin 47 at https://www.coredental.ca Emergency Dentistry in Calgary https://www.coredental.ca/services/emergency-dentistry-calgary <span>Emergency Dentistry in Calgary</span> <span><span lang="" about="/user/1" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">admin</span></span> <span>Wed, 10/23/2019 - 13:06</span> <div><div class="maincontentbox"> <div class="row"> <div class="col-12"> <h1 class="display-4 mb-2"></h1> <p class="display-5 mb-2">Do you have a dental emergency such as a damaged tooth, lost filling, or toothache?
