Smiles significantly impact the public’s perception of us. Individuals with a great smile are often considered more friendly, approachable, and amicable. Smiles can also impact our social and professional interactions. Fortunately, it is easy to improve your smile through expert cosmetic dentistry. At Quarry Park Dental in Calgary, we provide a wide range of cosmetic dental procedures, including:
The mouth may appear to be a small part of our overall anatomy. However, it is filled with many important parts that affect our everyday lives. This includes the ability to help you eat, drink, speak and smile. The key players in your mouth are your incisors, canines, premolars and molars.
April is National Oral Health Month! What better way to celebrate than with some oral health knowledge. At Quarry Park Dental we want our patients to feel confident in their at-home oral care. Most people feel they know how to brush their teeth, but may not diligently practice or have developed bad habits. Let’s review proper brushing techniques to help get you back on track!
Proper nutrition is essential for your overall health, including your oral health too! This means eating a balanced diet in order for your body to get the nutrients it needs. For children this is especially critical as they continue to grow and develop. Without the right nutrients their teeth may not develop properly! In order for them to develop strong, decay-resistant teeth, children need a balanced diet. Their diet should also emphasize on nutrients such as calcium, phosphorous and the proper levels of fluoride.
A first impression can be critical. Have you ever heard the saying “you never have the chance to make a first impression twice”? It’s the truth! One of the most influential components to a first impression is your smile. It’s one of the first things that many people notice! The perfect smile can give you the confidence to meet new friends or impress work colleagues.
Cleaning your tongue is an important step to a healthy oral hygiene routine. At Quarry Park Dental, we want our patients have healthy smiles – which includes the knowledge of at-home oral care. Here are some helpful tips on tongue cleaning!
Oral health care should start from a young age. This can help lead to a lifetime of good oral health and a beautiful smile! As a parent, you may be curious when should you start taking your child to see the dentist? The American Dental Association indicates a first dental visit should be made when a child’s first tooth appears or no later than their first birthday. At Quarry Park Dental, we often see children around age two. It can be tempting to hold off until your child is older to bring them in to see a dentist. However, the sooner you bring them in, the easier it is for them to feel comfortable at a dental office, the sooner we can detect problems early and provide them with proper oral care.
Missing a tooth or any of your teeth isn’t any fun. It can negatively affect your daily life. It can also change your appearance and affect self-confidence too. Besides the cosmetic appearance, missing teeth can be harmful to your oral health. At Quarry Park Dental, we are here to help you learn the importance of replacing missing teeth.
A regular dental checkup is recommended at least twice a year to maintain a healthy oral cavity. Apart from brushing and flossing your teeth at home, you should visit your dentist every six months to check if your teeth and gums are healthy. Part of the routine dental checkup is a professional dental cleaning. At Quarry Park Dental we ensure that our patients receive professional dental cleaning during their check-ups!
