Keeping your teeth healthy and at their best takes a lifetime of diligence and care.

Good Dental Hygiene Starts with Regular Brushing and Flossing
Healthy eating, as well as regular brushing and flossing are the most important things Calgarians can do to obtain and maintain strong oral and overall health. Taking the time to carefully brush at least twice per day and flossing once per day makes the difference for your long term health. Be extra careful if you have sensitive gums or tight spacing between your teeth. See your dental professional to get tips on how to best take care of your health.
Dental Scaling and Why Your Teeth Will Thank You
Scaling is a process that allows a dental hygienist to remove disease causing bacteria above and below the gumline with special instruments. Regular scaling and debridement treatments from the professionals at Panatella Dental help to prevent periodontal disease and other cardiovascular diseases that have been linked to oral health.
Fluoride Is an Important Part of Dental Hygiene
Our dentists and hygienists will answer any questions you might have about fluoride treatments as part of your oral health plan. Dr. James Talbot, Dr. former chief medical officer of Health for Alberta, states “When combined with healthy food and good oral health habits, fluoride is safe and effective whether it occurs naturally or is added to the optimal level in water…Fluoridation uniquely allows us to prevent disease and suffering and promote the wellness of all Albertans, equitably. It is pretty simple: adults and children from areas with water fluoridation have fewer cavities than people in communities where the water fluoride level is too low.” For more information about fluoride, visit myHealth Alberta.
