Treatments can range from regular cleanings to laser treatments. Once gum disease progresses from gingivitis to advanced periodontitis it is irreversible.</p> <p>Here at Urban Oasis Dental Studio in South Calgary our dentists and hygienists are experts on gum disease. We will customize a personal plan just for you.</p> <p>Having a healthy life includes having a healthy mouth!</p> <p>Urban Oasis Dental in Bridlewood is committed to giving our SW Calgary patients clean, healthy teeth and gums.</p></div> Thu, 08 Oct 2020 18:05:47 +0000 admin 35 at https://www.urbanoasisdental.ca Invisalign® in SW Calgary https://www.urbanoasisdental.ca/services/invisalign-sw-calgary <span>Invisalign® in SW Calgary</span> <span><span>admin</span></span> <span><time datetime="2020-10-08T12:56:31-05:00" title="Thursday, October 8, 2020 - 12:56">Thu, 10/08/2020 - 12:56</time> </span> <div><h2>Urban Oasis Dental is now your source for Invisalign in Southwest Calgary</h2> <p>It’s never too late to achieve a beautiful smile. Our friendly team are now offering our patients Invisalign, also known as clear or invisible braces. Invisalign treatment straightens your teeth using a custom-made series of clear aligners created just for you.</p> <img class="img-fluid mb-2" alt="Invisalign" src="/files/images/mainimages/invisalign.jpg" /><h2>The Invisalign Process</h2> <p>Our digital scanning system creates a 3-D digital scan of your teeth, so no messy impressions are required. A virtual representation is created showing how your teeth will move with each stage of treatment. Every case is unique to each patient so individual results may vary.</p> <p>The aligners are made of smooth, comfortable, BPA-free and virtually invisible plastic that you wear over your teeth, which won’t irritate your cheeks or gums. They gradually and gently straighten your teeth. The aligners are changed every two weeks until your treatment is complete. You will achieve a great smile with little interference to your daily life.</p> <p>Simply wear them throughout the day, and remove them when you eat, brush or floss your teeth. As you wear each set of aligners, your teeth gently and gradually begin to shift into place.</p> <p>To monitor your progress, you will also have checkups with your doctor. For best results and a timely outcome, you should wear your aligners for 20 to 22 hours per day, throughout your entire treatment. The aligners are easily removable, so you can continue to brush and floss your teeth as you normally would.</p></div> Thu, 08 Oct 2020 17:56:31 +0000 admin 34 at https://www.urbanoasisdental.ca Five Ways to Quit Smoking https://www.urbanoasisdental.ca/blog/five-ways-quit-smoking <span>Five Ways to Quit Smoking</span> <span><span>admin</span></span> <span><time datetime="2019-05-29T10:25:02-05:00" title="Wednesday, May 29, 2019 - 10:25">Wed, 05/29/2019 - 10:25</time> </span> Wed, 29 May 2019 15:25:02 +0000 admin 41 at https://www.urbanoasisdental.ca World No Tobacco Day – May 31st https://www.urbanoasisdental.ca/blog/world-no-tobacco-day-%E2%80%93-may-31st <span>World No Tobacco Day – May 31st</span> <span><span>admin</span></span> <span><time datetime="2019-05-29T10:19:16-05:00" title="Wednesday, May 29, 2019 - 10:19">Wed, 05/29/2019 - 10:19</time> </span> Wed, 29 May 2019 15:19:16 +0000 admin 40 at https://www.urbanoasisdental.ca Can Dental Problems Lead to High Blood Pressure? https://www.urbanoasisdental.ca/blog/can-dental-problems-lead-high-blood-pressure <span>Can Dental Problems Lead to High Blood Pressure?</span> <span><span>admin</span></span> <span><time datetime="2019-05-22T11:02:16-05:00" title="Wednesday, May 22, 2019 - 11:02">Wed, 05/22/2019 - 11:02</time> </span> Wed, 22 May 2019 16:02:16 +0000 admin 42 at https://www.urbanoasisdental.ca SW Calgary Sedation Dentistry https://www.urbanoasisdental.ca/services/sw-calgary-sedation-dentistry <span>SW Calgary Sedation Dentistry</span> <span><span>admin</span></span> <span><time datetime="2018-12-11T11:25:42-06:00" title="Tuesday, December 11, 2018 - 11:25">Tue, 12/11/2018 - 11:25</time> </span> <div><p>Urban Oasis Dental provides oral and nitrous sedation in SW Calgary.
