Did you know that tooth enamel is the second hardest naturally-occurring substance on earth? As hard and strong as it may be, your tooth enamel still needs protection from tooth decay and cavities. While some wear and tear is normal, there’s a lot you can do to keep your enamel strong this New Year. The following are some helpful suggestions from our team of dental professionals:
Dental hygiene is one of the most important aspects when it comes to good oral health. By taking proper care of your teeth, you can prevent certain complications and better preserve your overall health. Some problems, however, can occur even if you practice excellent oral hygiene. That’s why it’s always important to take a look under the surface with a dental x-ray.
You may be aware that stress is not good for your mind, body, and skin, but did you know that long-term stress can also affect your smile? Researchers have established a link between stress and oral health, with one study revealing that individuals with greater apparent stress also report poorer oral health.
Who ever said making healthy choices was a trick? There are so many things to look forward to during the spooky season, such as costumes, pumpkin carving and classic Halloween movies! Of course, Halloween wouldn’t feel the same without a sweet treat of two, but it’s not an excuse for a candy overload!
Taking care of your teeth, gums and mouth is great for your smile and oral health, but did you know it can also benefit your overall health? Maintaining a consistent oral hygiene routine can help prevent not only bad breath, gum disease and tooth decay, but it can also put you at a reduced risk for certain cardiovascular problems too.

After months and weeks of waiting, we received some good news! As of May 14, 2020, The Alberta Dental Association and College announced that all “Alberta dentists are permitted to return to full provision of services.” Until recently, our team at The Dental Room was only permitted to treat patients with urgent/emergency needs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We’re very happy to announce that we will be booking all patient appointments as of June 1, 2020!

They’re necessary to treat pain but also help dentists to get ahead of problems. Now, you have access to a downtown Calgary dental office that performs digital X-rays. These relatively new diagnostic tools offer patients improved effectiveness, lower risks and faster treatment.
