THE YEAR IN REVIEW
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! ENJOY
Season’s Greetings from Dentists on Bloor
As another year-end, it’s time to look back and reflect.
Demystifying Dental X-rays
X-rays are an effective diagnostic tool that help when treating oral health issues. Dentists and radiologists widely use X-rays to identify cracks, cavities, infections, and abnormal teeth and bones. In dentistry, an X-ray is a simple, cheap, and helpful tool that would make treating simple problems more complicated.
As a parent of 3 kids who used pacifiers extensively to help them fall asleep, stay asleep and just to sooth them, I always wondered if I was affecting their teeth and jaw development that would require future orthodontic treatment. There have always been confusing and conflicting concerns.
DRY MOUTH- It’s a Desert in There
Dry mouth is a true condition that affects roughly one in five adults.
Dry mouth or xerostomia is a condition that happens when saliva flow in the mouth is decreased. 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.
Floss vs Waterpik?
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?
What Is The Best Toothpaste?
With so many products in the toothpaste aisle it can be very confusing.
Here are some of the differences to help you decide

ORAL HEALTH HACKS- as seen on Social Media ( by Sherina Amin RDH). PART 1
In a world where we are bombarded with information online—whether it be through TikTok, Instagram, Facebook or other social media platforms- we can be easily intrigued by DIY trends. “Oral health hacks” can be especially alluring because of claims of using products that you may have at home, are relatively inexpensive, and are considered “natural”. But do these hacks actually work and are they safe?
Digital Dental Impressions 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.
HOW TO CHANGE A HABIT
We all have good and bad habits. Why does it seem impossible to change the bad ones no matter how hard we try? This is not for lack of will power but rather because habit formation involves multiple parts of the brain. So in order to change a habit there are specific calculated steps needed. Here are a few tips that can help you with those habits that you want to change in your life.
A dental implant is a procedure where modern dentistry has been able to predictably and aesthetically replace missing teeth, fill in gaps and create better chewing function for patients of all ages. Some people are still not sure that dental implants are right for them. Here are some myths about dental implants that may prevent you from having the smile of your dreams.
Night Guards To Protect Teeth And Gums
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.
Not just any digital scanner
I am so excited to share with you the new technology that we just purchased.
I have been waiting a long time and after much research I feel I have found the right digital scanner for our patients.

Why You Should Choose Dentists on Bloor!
While a dentist’s appointment may not be your favorite appointment, it is one that should be kept and not canceled. Visiting the dentist at least twice a year is vital to help monitor and maintain the condition of your teeth and gums. 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.
