Impeccable dental hygiene doesn’t just mean taking care of your teeth. It involves healthy gums, strong teeth and a clean mouth.
Brushing your teeth twice a day and flossing daily are dental hygiene practices that should be followed regularly to keep your dental health in good condition. General Oral Hygiene includes periodic oral examinations including x-rays and visual exam, checking of gum diseases and periodontal health and professional cleanings.
Precaution is always better than cure. Regular dental hygiene visits partnered with an impeccable dental hygiene routine at home, guarantees that your teeth, gums and oral cavity will remain in good health. It minimises the risks of infection, decay, odour and hence less intrusive procedures that are sometimes painful and might involve loss of teeth.
The frequency of dental hygiene visit can vary from 3 months to 6 months depending on the health of your gum and bone level.
Dear Valued Patient,
First and foremost, we want to extend our gratitude to all of our patients and community members for understanding the changes we are having to implement because of current events.
The Alberta Dental Association and College has mandated that dental offices only provide emergency services due to COVID-19.
Your health and safety is our priority. In that light, and in an effort to keep everyone safe, we have suspended normal dental care at our office, BUT we are still AVAILABLE to treat DENTAL EMERGENCIES! The last thing we'd want at this time is for patients with a serious infection to go to a medical provider because they could not find a dental provider. That being said, if you encounter someone with a serious dental emergency, please inform them that we are here to help!
All non-essential upcoming appointments will be rescheduled into the future. If you have one coming up, expect a phone call from one of our team members, if you have not already.
We will hopefully have a better outlook in the next few weeks and will keep you updated from our side. We look forward to seeing you all after the crisis and well into the future.
Sincerely, Dr. Kinjal Patel Kingsview Dental
