Why Choose A Family Dentist?

Your Family Dentist

All dentists work on teeth, but not all dentists or dental clinics focus on dental care for the whole family.  Most family dentistry clinics fall into the category of general dentistry working to prevent and treat the most commonly occurring dental problems by offering a wide selection of dental services and solutions.  At Clearwater Dental Clinic in Edmonton, we are proud to have a friendly, experienced team that can offer the following services to our patients and their families:

  • Dental Cleanings
  • Comprehensive Check-ups
  • Cosmetic Dental Services
  • Teeth Whitening
  • Wisdom Tooth Removal
  • Root Canal Therapy
  • Dental Implants
  • Dentures
  • Crowns/Bridges/Veneers
  • iTero Digital Imaging

Being a dental clinic that focuses in family dentistry, we are your first line of defense in the prevention and treatment of oral health issues.  Our family dentistry offers a wide variety of services related to the general maintenance of oral hygiene and the health of your teeth catering to a wide range of patients from children to adults.  Some of the most basic services our family dentistry practice provides are: regular teeth cleanings and fluoride treatments that help ensure plaque build-up around the teeth is controlled so the gums and teeth may remain healthy; detection and removal of tooth decay and filling teeth where necessary. These basic services are considered essential preventive measures for patients of all ages in an effort to avoid more complex procedures.  Twice yearly dental check-ups and cleanings are highly recommended, throughout your lifetime.  Prevention is key!

Maintaining good oral health also affects our overall state of health.  We believe it’s never too early to start your kids on good oral healthcare habits.  Educating parents on the importance of cleaning their infant baby’s gums and new teeth, and how to avoid cavities when more and more teeth start appearing in the mouth, for example, is one way we offer support in the early stages of dental care for the family. Bringing your children in for regular checkups will enable us to monitor tooth development and the overall oral health of your child as they grow.

For older children, and many adults as well, orthodontic dentistry is focused on, not only the aesthetic appearance of our mouths, but also restoring the functionality of our teeth.  For example, speaking and chewing are important functions impacted by the health of our teeth.   We need our teeth as the starting point for breaking down food and its nutrients-we all need those nutrients throughout our lives. As we mature and become more aware of the power of a beautiful smile, it goes without saying that overall health is as important as anything for achieving a sense of well being and satisfaction with our general appearance. Family dentistry focuses on the principal of building an understanding and comprehension of each patient’s oral health at the primary stages, with young children becoming aware of teeth-cleaning and maintenance techniques early on.  When necessary, orthodontic treatment with braces and teeth-setting can be the next step toward a long life of healthy teeth.  Taking precautions such as using mouth guards for children active in sports, maintaining a high standard of oral hygiene, and sharing any relevant changes in overall health with your family dentist is the best way to ensure oral health for life.
