Easy Ways to Spruce Up Your Smile for Spring

The promise of warmer weather and long sunny days is enough to make anybody grin with happiness. If your teeth could do with some tender loving care to become their gleaming best, then now is a great time to evaluate your dental health. It may be relatively easy, quick and inexpensive to spruce up your smile. Even better, some treatments may help to protect your teeth. Book a Dental Cleaning Ideally, everyone should have regular dental cleanings, and a six-monthly routine is often perfect.

April is Oral Health Month in Canada

This month is National Oral Health Month in Canada. We thought it would be an excellent opportunity to talk about the common problems that can be caused when your oral health isn’t quite as good as you’d like. Your mouth is an integral part of your body, but lots of people tend to think of it as being somehow separate. By thinking of it as a separate entity, it’s easier to ignore signs that something might be wrong such as bleeding gums, tenderness or pain. If we experience these symptoms elsewhere, then we’ll most likely book an appointment with the doctor. The Impact of Poor Dental Health In fact, poor dental health can negatively impact your quality of life. When you experience dental pain, have missing teeth or an infection, it can affect the foods you choose, the way you socialize and even the way you speak. Over time, problems…

Is it Time to Straighten Up?

Do you have crooked or unevenly aligned teeth? Perhaps you have unsightly spaces in between them? If the answer is yes, then you might have considered orthodontic treatment, but maybe you’ve been put off by the thought of wearing unsightly metal braces? There is a better solution which is to use nearly invisible clear, removable aligners with a system called Invisalign. Discreetly Straighten Your Teeth Invisalign is hugely popular worldwide because it is such a discreet and comfortable system to use and which can provide excellent results. Instead of straightening your teeth with fixed metal brackets and wires, Invisalign uses clear, removable BPA-free plastic aligners and which are custom-made to fit tightly over your teeth. Once in the mouth, the aligners are nearly invisible, so most people won’t even notice you are wearing them unless of course, you choose to let them in on your secret! How Does Invisalign Work?…

How Much Do You Know About Gum Disease?

If you regularly visit Margolian Dentistry, then you will know we encourage our patients to take a preventative approach to their dental care in Oshawa. It’s a strategy that is cost-effective and which saves you time in the longer term, and perhaps most importantly it helps to protect your general health. One common dental disease that can negatively impact your general health is gum disease. Unfortunately, gum disease is incredibly common, and according to the Canadian Dental Association, 7 out of 10 Canadians will develop some form of gum disease at some point during their lifetime. What’s worse is that gum disease can progress quite silently and painlessly until it is well advanced, by which stage it may have caused irreparable damage to your gums and other structures around your teeth, and it could have begun to affect your general health. What Is Gum Disease and How Does It Begin?…

Tips for Keeping Kid’s Teeth Healthy This Easter

The Easter bunny is on his way, and no-one wants to spoil the fun at this time of year. Many of us have very happy childhood memories of Easter egg hunts and want our children to enjoy a similar experience. Unfortunately, over the years Easter has become much more commercialized, and the stores are full of Easter candy and egg-shaped treats. It’s easy to think it’s just a holiday and that a little sugar won’t hurt. The more we learn about sugar and its effects on dental health in Ajax and its impact on general health, the more critical it is to ensure our kids grow up with healthy habits that are sustainable for life. We already know that sugary treats increase the risk of childhood tooth decay. The earlier children have dental problems such as cavities, the higher the risk of them suffering from complex oral health problems as…
