3 Important Family Dentistry Services You Need to Know About

You love your family. As such, you want them to be as healthy as possible – in every capacity. However, it can be so easy to get caught up in ensuring your family eats right and gets enough exercise that you forget other important aspects of a healthy life – your oral health. In fact, there are links that indicate that sound dental health is connected to the quality of your overall health

For this reason, family dentistry services in Calgary should be a priority to maintain the bright smiles of your loved ones. That’s why we here at Stoney Trail Dental offer a myriad of preventative care and general dentistry services to ensure your family’s oral hygiene remains healthy and vibrant.

Family Dentistry Services in Calgary

Whether your son needs root canal therapy or your daughter requires a wisdom tooth to be extracted, at Stoney Trail Dental, we have the oral care services necessary to meet the dental needs of your family. View our list of dental services below to see which ones are most relevant to you and your family.

1. Dental Sedation

For many, visiting a dentist is a very worrisome and anxiety-inducing process. However, due to the development of certain procedures, most dental visits no longer warrant such an apprehensive response. One such measure is dental sedation. This process involves sedative drugs being delivered orally to patients in order to lower dental anxiety. 

So if you (or any of your family members) are a bit squeamish at the thought of your next dental visit, we here at Stoney Trail Dental sympathize with you. And as a result, we offer dental sedation services. 

A few options that are available include:

  • IV sedation
  • Laughing gas
  • Oral sedation

2. Dental Cleaning

Regular dental cleanings help clear blemished or stained teeth, as well as remove plaque and tartar buildup. Consequently, you and your family will feel more confident as you light up every room with your brighter smiles wherever you go. At Stoney Trail Dental, we offer thorough dental cleaning services that are quick and that enhance the quality of your oral health. 

3. Dental Cavities

If you notice little brown or blackened spots riddled over a tooth or teeth, you should visit your dentist as soon as possible, as this is most likely a cavity. These little holes tunnel through your enamel and – over time – can result in decay. And if you fail to treat it fast enough, it can open up a whole slew of dental issues down the line. 

Dental cavities can be avoided through healthy lifestyle choices. And while there are many factors that can contribute to cavities developing, one of the biggest culprits is your diet. So ensure that your family is eating a healthy diet with a limited sugar intake. 

Some examples of food that is good for your mouth and teeth include: 

  • Celery 
  • Carrots
  • Nuts
  • Apples
  • Pears
  • Leafy greens (spinach, kale, lettuce, etc)
  • Yogurt
  • Milk
  • Fatty fish
  • Water

Make these foods, and similar ones, a staple in your family’s diet, and you will all reap the benefits of good oral health. Combined with brushing, flossing, and regular checkups, these lifestyle choices will keep your smiles bright.

Final Thoughts

The health of your family is always the first priority. Without sound health, everything else of “value” seems to fall by the wayside. And ensure your family’s overall health means securing their dental health. For this reason, it’s important that both you and your family remain up to date on your dental visits to ensure the quality of your smiles, and secure the health you all deserve.

At Stoney Trail Dental, we house a friendly and experienced dental team that prioritizes your dental needs, in addition to your comfort level. Our licensed dentists are passionate, caring, and ready to meet your family’s dental requirements. Contact us today to learn more.
