It is important to identify and treat dry mouth because it may increase the risk of cavities and oral infection, it may lead to painful and difficulty in swallowing and may cause ill fitting dentures.

    Blog by Dentists on Bloor

    Poor oral hygiene can lead to gum disease and cavities. The build up of food particles immediately after you eat can lead to plaque and if left alone long enough will harden to tartar.

    Brushing alone with fluoride tooth paste can help but what about the spaces in between? The toothbrush bristle is not small enough to get in between tight spaces so what can you do?

  • Digital Dental Impressions By Dentists on Bloor

    Author: Dentists On Bloor | | Categories: Childrens Dentist Toronto , Cosmetic Dentist , Dental Clinic Toronto

    Blog by Dentists on Bloor

    Digital dental impressions represent cutting-edge technology that allow dentists to create a virtual, computer-generated replica of the hard and soft tissues in the mouth using optical scanning devices. The digital technology captures clear and highly accurate data in mere minutes, without the need for traditional impression materials that some patients find inconvenient and messy. It replaces the need to take messy impressions for a night guard, crowns, invisible orthodontic aligners, or when you need to compare and monitor tooth and gum changes that would otherwise not be easy to do. Digital impressions significantly increase efficiency, productivity, and accuracy and make it possible for dentists to email the virtual impression to the laboratory rather than send a traditional impression or stone model via regular mail.

    Blog by Dentists on Bloor

    The daily stresses of life, especially over the last 2 years, has taken a great toll on our bodies as well as our teeth. Unfortunately, I have seen more of this with many of our patients presenting with damage to their teeth, fillings and crowns that present as chips, cracks, and general wearing down due to teeth grinding and jaw clenching. Even if you don’t think you’re clenching and/or grinding your teeth during the day, it could indeed be happening at night.

It has been well researched that poor oral health may lead to an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, lung disease, and oral cancers. Regular examinations will help control and catch conditions before they become that emergency visits we all fear.
