Do you offer fluoride-free alternatives?
Yes, our practice carries alternative products and materials with similar benefits. Ask your dentist today about your options!
Don’t dental products and materials contain fluoride?
The level of fluoride found in dental products is considered safe for the general population. However, individuals can be exposed to fluoride through other sources: food, beverages, some medications, and Edmonton’s city water supply.
What is fluoride?
While fluoride brings local benefits in strengthening teeth and combating tooth decay, repeated exposure to high levels can have negative impacts. As fluoride is repeatedly absorbed into the body, it can lead to health complications such as dental fluorosis, thyroid deficiency, depression, and even increased incidence of bone fractures.
What advantages are there to conventional titanium implants?
As a result of their multi-piece design, titanium implants offer more versatility. Moreover, they offer solutions in areas of limited space and bone support.
What advantages are there to ceramic implants?
Due to their one piece design, ceramic implants are easier to maintain. Likewise, they can be placed immediately following extraction in one single appointment. Lastly, ceramic implants are both hypoallergenic and biocompatible.
What kinds of implants do you offer?
Our practice offers both metal-free ceramic dental implant and conventional titanium implant options. Ultimately, it is your health history and clinical situation that may elect one option in favour of the other.
Do I qualify for an implant?
Whether or not you are a suitable candidate for dental implants can depend on multiple factors. Your dentist will need to take into consideration aspects such as your medical history, any underlying conditions, medications, and even social habits.
How do I know if I need an implant?
If you are missing any teeth, dental implants can help restore both your natural function and aesthetics. Make sure to book an appointment with your dentist right away to discuss your options.
Are cosmetic dental procedures safe for children?

What are the benefits of cosmetic dentistry?
Aside from its aesthetic benefits, there are several advantages to cosmetic dentistry: overall better dental health, an improved quality of life, better self-esteem, and a variety of choices of procedures to choose from.
The care I received was courteous and very professional. The dentist was extremely gentle. She replaced a filling which I had lost and all I can say is “It’s BEAUTIFUL!”. The experience was painless and actually pleasant. My concerns about dental amalgams and root canals were taken into consideration and I felt like I was genuinely listened to. I highly recommend this dental office! 🙂03/12/2016
Very positive experience. The reception was friendly and helpful. I am a little apprehensive, as are most I think when visiting the dentist, but this team was kind, gentle, but also very informative. Dr. Aujla has a very peaceful demeanour, I would definitely recommend this team for a stress free dental experience.18/11/2016
The lovely woman who did my cleaning was warm and welcoming, and I felt so at ease with her that it was almost as good as getting a massage! It was the most relaxed I’ve ever been at the dentist. Also, I loved how she was caring and didn’t make fake “small talk” with me. A total delight! The dentist was also warm, gentle, sweet, and she seemed so relaxed. It was kind of like being in the hands of angels. Not exaggerating! Thank you, Lara24/09/2016
Thank you for the great first impression! As someone who has worked in the service industry for more than 30 years I can tell you are doing a great job! I was greeted by 2 lovely assistants at the front desk one of which actually remembered my email address when I mentioned who I was – that’s a clear sign of paying attention to details and connecting to the clients who are coming in. The rest of my visit was as welcoming and also incredibly informative. I learned more about my teeth and loved the digital imaging that really showed me what Dr. Ruby was explaining. I’ve already recommended the office to my 2 daughters and their families and I will continue to spread the word. Thank you again for the great experience I look forward to my next visit!22/09/2016
