Periodontal Care

Some patients build little tartar, while others are prone to more ‘build-up’. Dr. Parsa has the ability to use her intra-oral camera to show patients before and after photos of the cleaning.

Treating Gum Disease

If Dr. Parsa notices an issue, she’ll ensure you understand the extent of the issue by using a large screen to show photos of your mouth and she will take the time to explain the concerns. She’ll do ‘scaling’ and ‘root plaining’ around your gums, which means using a professional dental cleaning tool to get rid of all the plaque and tartar around the gumline and deeper into the roots of the teeth. Comfort is always a priority at Yankee Valley Dental, and she may ask you if you’d like to use ‘freezing’ (local anesthetic) to minimize the discomfort.

At Yankee Valley Dental we provide all the services that you need to attain a smile that you feel be confident about.

The earliest stage of gum disease is called gingivitis and at this stage the condition can be reversed since the bone and connective tissue are still intact. In the progressing stages, periodontitis, the bone and fibers holding the teeth are irreversibly damaged and this could result in the loss of the tooth. Dr. Parsa may recommend antibiotics or mouth rinses and gels to help reduce the bacterial inflection. Depending on the severity of the gum disease, Dr. Parsa suggest you to seek treatment with a periodontist (a gum specialist) until the gum disease is in remission. 

Of course, Dr. Parsa will also provide you with advice on how to prevent gum disease in the future, including showing you how to properly brush or floss as well as recommend antibacterial toothpastes or mouthwashes to reduce the amount of plaque in your mouth.

The best way to deal with gum disease is not to get it in the first place. Book an appointment at Yankee Valley Dental and prevent or treat your gums with Airdrie periodontal care from Dr. Parsa.

Why Choose Our Airdrie Dental Clinic?

We follow the 2018 Alberta Dentists Fee guide, making dental treatment more affordable for our patients. Our office offers direct insurance billing, which means that at the end of your appointment, you are only responsible for paying the part of the treatment that your dental insurance is not covering.

We never want there to be surprises for our patients. Our friendly staff will help you look into your dental insurance plan to better understand your dental coverage prior to treatment.

We also understand that life is busy, and that taking time off work is not always an option. We have evening and weekend hours to accommodate patients after work and school.

Dr. Parsa will always give out her personal phone number after extractions, dental implants, or root canal therapy.

Dr. Parsa wants her patients to be able to get a hold of her if there is even small a chance that they will be in pain over the weekend. At Yankee Valley Dental, we want to ensure that our patients are never left without the care of a dental professional.

Emergencies can have bad timing! We are one of the few offices that are open on long weekends. We close for statutory holidays such a New Year’s Day and Good Friday. We will endeavour to be open on every Saturday including long weekends, as the majority of other offices in town will be closed.

Your comfort is our priority. We have patient neck pillows and blankets so that you can get your dental work done comfortably.

Testimonial of Our Service

I saw Dr. Parsa to get my wisdom teeth removed when she was working in Calgary. I had been told by another general dentist that I have to see the specialist to get them out but put it off because it was hundreds of dollars just for the consultation. I was in soooo much pain when I saw Dr. Parsa and was so relieved when she was able to take them out for me. It saved me a lot of money since my insurance covered her fees. I also had sedation since I was really nervous about the procedure and don’t think I could have gone through it without. So grateful that she was able to help me out. I highly recommended Dr. Parsa anyone looking for a dentist!
