If you’re looking for a routine or regular dental exam in South Calgary, expect a thorough oral health checkup in our dental office.  

Our dentists in South Calgary take their time when examining your teeth and gums. Their goal is to diagnose and treat any oral health issues that present during this comprehensive oral health check. 

Your Regular Dental Exam in South Calgary 

A routine exam includes a thorough and detail-oriented look at your teeth, gums, and soft tissue. This checkup consists of an oral cancer screening. If your dentist in South Calgary discovers specific issues, he may take pictures using an intraoral camera.  

An intraoral camera is about the size of a drinking straw, and it captures detailed images from inside your mouth. Your dentist pulls these images up on an exam room monitor, which helps you understand the oral health issue better. The technology allows you to make the best choices for your smile, and it provides a better understanding of why your dentist in South Calgary suggests a specific treatment plan.  

Your dentist may also order x-rays as needed to flush out hidden dental health issues. This preventive measure spots emerging problems before they turn into costly complications. At Legacy Dental Care, we rely on digital x-rays for clearer images, and because this technology emits very little radiation. It is as safe as a walk in the sunshine! 

Your regular dental exam in South Calgary also considers: 

  • An evaluation for periodontal disease 
  • Updating of your medical history and current medications 
  • Oral development in children 

Your dentist in Calgary takes time to answer your questions, and he will provide a custom treatment plan based on exam findings. 

Why Regular Dental Exams Are Important 

Regular dental exams in Calgary—along with routine teeth cleanings—help lower your risks for cavities and periodontal disease.
