At Glenora Family Dental, we are great supporters of patient knowledge and oral health education!
It’s important to us that all of your questions and concerns be addressed, and that you feel totally comfortable and confident with your course of treatment at our clinic. Below are a series of frequently asked questions that we’ve received from our patients:
Always! We’re committed to your oral health, and our door is always open. Give us a call today at (780) 452.5700, or schedule an appointment online.
Dental Cleanings: We recommend dental hygiene visits every 3 to 9 months to ensure your teeth and gums remain healthy, and to reduce the risk of gingivitis (gum disease). Keep in mind, however, that the frequency of dental hygiene visits will be individualized based on the current condition of your mouth, and your individual oral health needs.
Dental Exams: Regular dental exams are just as important as seeing a dental hygienist! The frequency of examinations should typically be between 6 – 12 months, however, this schedule will be individualized to meet your personal oral health needs, and based on various factors such as your history of cavities, gum disease, and other oral conditions. Everyone has unique dental needs, and at Glenora Family Dental, we customize a treatment plan to meet yours.
At Glenora Family Dental, we offer flexible payment options and work with a number of insurance providers. We can also direct-bill your insurance company. If you are unsure if your insurance provider is covered, give us a call at (780) 452.5700! We also accept cash, debit, MasterCard, or Visa.
Good oral health starts with the first tooth. Even though baby teeth will eventually fall out, they play a major role in a child’s speech development and nutrition; they should never be considered “disposable,” or be neglected.
The first dental visit should take place by about the age of three, although we encourage earlier visits to help children become acclimated to the dentist, and allow us the opportunity to check for early signs of decay. Learn more about dentistry for kids at Glenora.
Dental emergencies don’t always happen between regular business hours. While we are not a 24-hour practice, getting the necessary and correct dental care could save your smile, and treat pain or symptoms you may be experiencing. Whatever dental emergency you are facing, Glenora Family Dental in Edmonton is just a phone call away - (780) 452.5700!
We offer many cosmetic dentistry options at Glenora Family Dental to help get you closer to the smile you desire.
Tooth reshaping or re-contouring is an option that can fix slightly misshapen teeth, chipped teeth, or teeth that are too long.
Alternatively, porcelain veneers are another option for misshapen, discoloured, chipped, crooked, or gapped teeth.
Looking to brighten your smile? At-home teeth whitening options can be a cost-effective and simple way to brighten your smile.
Some of our patients require digital x-rays every 6 months; whereas those with excellent oral hygiene and low cavity risks only require x-rays every year or so – the frequency of x-rays will be individualized for you at your visit. Other reasons for having x-rays taken include checking the jaw for signs of cancer or other abnormalities, to assist with treatment diagnosis, or as a requirement for certain procedures, such as root canal treatment.
