We Are Now Open!

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice, and you may have seen this during your visits to our office. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable.

Our office follows infection control recommendations made by the Alberta Dental Association and College (ADA&C), Health Canada and the Canadian Centre For Occupational Health and Saftey(CCOHS).

We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

To ensure the health and wellbeing of our patients and team members, we have installed 2 different types of air purifiers at our dental office. Both of these are manufactured by the Canadian company, Surgically Clean Air.

  • CASCADE WHITE - The Cascade White is the first unit you will see when you enter our office. We have placed this in the waiting area because this is the largest room in our office. The Cascade White is able to filter up to 576 cubic feet per minute.

    The Cascade White filter has 6 stages of filtration including UV sterilization, plus two additional negative ion chambers to ensure the air is as fresh as possible. These six filters capture 99.998% of dust particles, pollen, volatile organic chemicals (VOCs), mold, allergens, viruses, odors (like formaldehyde and smoke), bio-aerosols, nitrous oxide, and many other pollutants that are found in the inside air. The negative ion generator makes the indoor environment feel more pure, clean, and energized.
  • JADE - The Jade filter is what you will find in each of our operatories. The Jade filters still have the same 6 stage filtering system and will move 383 cubic feet per minute. This means the Jade will filter all the air in a 10 x 10 room in about 2 minutes. 

Both of these filters perform their duties without being loud, (an industry-leading low level of about 55DB) or creating a “breeze” that can be uncomfortable for our patients. 

Some additional changes you may also see when it is time for your next appointment. For example:

  • Our office will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again when you are in the office. We will not allow patients to enter our office who have symptoms or have traveled outside of Canada in the last 2 weeks.
  • We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the office. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the office for you to use as needed.
  • You may see that our waiting room will no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
  • In the interest of physical distancing, we are advising all adult patients to attend the office alone to prevent crowding. 
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
  • We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
  • For our safety and yours, we currently cannot accept walk-ins. 

We look forward to seeing you again and are happy to answer any questions you may have about the steps we take to keep you, and every patient, safe in our practice. To make an appointment, please call our office at (403) 382‑2273.

So come on in to get your dental work done and enjoy Surgically Clean Air!

Durable Missing Teeth Solutions

Missing Teeth Can Change Your Look, But Did You Know They Can Affect The Health Of Your Mouth Too?

When you lose a tooth you also lose the solid root structure that would normally be part of your jawbone. This can cause the bone to collapse and shrink away. The bone needs the constant pressure of chewing to stimulate the regeneration of bone cells. Without this stimulation, the bone can deteriorate to the point where bone loss is even noticeable in your facial features. Because it is painless you won’t even feel it happening.

That is why dental implants are the preferred method of replacing missing teeth. The implant acts the same as a tooth root and stimulates the bone to maintain its strength and size.

Dental Implants Are Similar To Joint Replacements

Made of titanium alloy, both joint replacements and dental implants fuse with your bone to create a strong structure that can be stronger than the bone or tooth it replaces.

At Cool Dental We Provide Two Types Of Dental Implants

The first type is to replace a single missing tooth. The implant itself is a single titanium screw which is inserted into the jawbone. Attached to the top of this screw is an abutment which is then topped with a crown to complete the full tooth.

The second type is used to secure full arch dentures. It is similar single tooth implant in that it uses titanium screws as the anchor to the jawbone. The difference is that multiple implants are inserted into the jawbone instead of just one. These are then fitted with a type of connector that allows you to “snap” a full denture down onto the implants making it feel like part of your jaw.

Implant secured dentures not only hold dentures securely in place, but they also provide the pressure on the jawbone to keep the bone from shrinking. This is a common problem with denture wearers causing them to constantly update their dentures. This happens because bone loss occurs under the denture and causes the denture to become loose.

Dental Implants Starting at $64.50

( Through a 5-Year Term Financing )

You deserve options. Don't delay seeking treatment you need.

Don’t Wait If You Are Considering Dental Implants

Bone loss starts almost immediately after losing teeth. If you have been wearing dentures for very long it is likely you have significant bone loss. The sooner you get dental implants the less bone loss your dentist will need to deal with and the simpler the procedure will be.
