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.

Full Mouth Reconstruction

Improving Life Quality with Full Mouth Reconstruction

Your oral health affects the quality of your life.

If your smile makes you feel self-conscious, chances are you’ll also shy away from social activities. If chewing causes pain in your mouth, you’re likely to skip nutritious food for comfort. If you’re experiencing problems with your jaw joint, the pain can radiate to other parts of your body.

Here at Cool Dental in Lethbridge, we offer full mouth reconstruction services to patients dealing with multiple oral health issues.

What is a Full Mouth Reconstruction

Sometimes, a single dental procedure isn’t enough to address your oral health issues. A full mouth reconstruction involves several dental treatments that are chosen to improve the way your mouth functions.

You may need a full mouth reconstruction due to an accident or trauma to the teeth, severe damage and fracture, bad bite, and chronic pain in your mouth, among others.

Common Dental Procedures Involved in Full Mouth Reconstruction

The dental procedures that we recommend depend on the condition of your mouth. Here are common dentistry services included in a full mouth reconstruction:

The goal is for you to achieve a balanced and healthy smile. Once your full mouth reconstruction is complete, you’ll see significant changes not only in your smile but in your overall health as well.

Full Mouth Reconstruction vs. Smile Makeover

You may be wondering how the full mouth reconstruction differs from a smile makeover.

A full mouth reconstruction focuses on dental procedures that you need. The treatments, by nature, are restorative. However, the results also make your smile more attractive. For example, if you need dental fillings to fix cavities, we can apply tooth-coloured options for a natural look.

A smile makeover, meanwhile, is done for aesthetic purposes. You may not need the procedures immediately.

It can be hard to separate a full mouth reconstruction from a smile makeover. Many of the equipment, techniques, and training required are similar. Both also need exceptional knowledge from the dental practitioner.

Full Mouth Reconstruction in Lethbridge

At Cool Dental, we begin with an initial consultation to evaluate your smile.

We focus on issues that need to be addressed immediately. We may request X-rays and take impressions of your teeth to identify where the specific problem areas are.

Every patient case is unique so we customize a step-by-step treatment plan for your full mouth reconstruction. We educate you on every phase of the treatment - the importance of each, what you can expect, and how you can prepare for each procedure.
