PREVENTATIVE CARE

  • Dental Hygiene
  • Dental hygiene is sometimes referred to as teeth cleaning but it is so much more than that. Our hygienists will review your health history and current medications. Then they will do a thorough examination and charting of the gum tissues and bone that supports your teeth. At the same time they are evaluating your home care [brushing and flossing] effectiveness and the amounts of tartar and stain that have accumulated since your last hygiene appointment. Tartar and stain deposits that are not removed can lead to gum disease, the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. The deposits you can see may be only the tip of the iceberg with large deposits below the gum line. What you can't see can definitely hurt you!
  • Digital Diagnostic Radiographs
  • Digital radiograghy offers numerous advantages over conventional film based radiograghy. It takes less than one quarter of the radiation to expose a digital sensor compared to a conventional xray film. This means a significant reduction in radiation exposure to you, the patient. The image is available immediately for viewing and diagnosis and can be viewed in a variety of settings such as sharpness, contrast or magnification to improve its diagnostic potential. There are no wrappers, lead foil or developing chemicals to pollute the environment. Great for everyone!
  • Sealants
  • Sealants are plastic coatings applied to the pits, fissures and grooves of teeth. These areas are difficult and sometimes even impossible to keep clean of the food and bacteria that collect in them and this leads to tooth decay. Sealants are easily applied without the need for freezing or drilling. Although not as durable as fillings, sealants are often used in younger patients to postpone or sometimes prevent a filling. Once placed the sealants will be closely monitored at your recall visits.
  • Fluoride
  • Fluoride is absorbed into tooth enamel making it more resistant to tooth decay. Saskatoon residents benefit from fluoridated drinking water. Your resistance to tooth decay will be even further enhanced by an application of concentrated fluoride immediately after a cleaning by one of our dental assistants or hygienists. If we don't have your preferred flavor let our staff know and we will make every effort to have it at your next cleaning.

  • Proform Mouthguards
  • Athletic mouthguards are an essential part of your sports equipment. Even in non-contact sports such as basketball, an errant elbow to the mouth or chin can bring a world of hurt to the teeth, jaws or jaw joints. The mouthguard provides a protective cover over the upper teeth and a force absorbing cushion between the upper and lower teeth. At All Smiles Dental we offer custom fitted Proform mouthguards in a variety of colors. When properly fitted these mouthguards have a snug fit and speaking with them in is not a problem. We have discounted the Suggested Fee Guide fee for this important service so that it is affordable for everyone who needs it. All it takes is a simple impression. We make the mouthguards on site and in many cases we can offer same day service.
