Why That Age One Dental Visit is Important

Margolian Dentistry is very much a family-oriented dental clinic, and we always go out of our way to look after little ones. The Canadian Dental Association recommends arranging that first dental visit within six months of your child’s first tooth emerging. We like to see children for their initial dental visit when their first few teeth are erupting and between age one and two years of age. Why See a Dentist in Whitby so Early? The idea is to prevent dental problems before they occur. By seeing your child while they are still very young, we can make sure any small problems are detected early. Also, it is a great way for a very young child to get accustomed to seeing the dentist regularly. What Are the Advantages of Early Dental Care?

Same Day Crowns Offer the Ultimate in Convenience

Lots of people have at least one or two crowns or will require a dental crown in the near future. A crown is designed to provide excellent protection for a severely damaged tooth, covering up the entire structure, so none of the original tooth is visible in the mouth. Covering or capping the tooth preserves it, preventing further damage and infection and decay. The Process for Having a Conventional Dental Crown in Oshawa Usually, a crown is fabricated in the dental laboratory using a tray impression of your teeth and which must be cast into a plaster model. The model is used to custom-make the new crown and often two or more weeks are needed before it is ready to be returned to the dental office for fitting. This method works extremely well, but patients must have a temporary crown while the permanent crown is being fabricated. Although we can…

Easy Tips to Eliminate Bad Breath

Bad breath can be caused by all sorts of different things, and the proper name for it is halitosis. It’s an embarrassing condition, and if your dental health is reasonable, it’s most likely only temporary. Foods with a strong odour such as onions and garlic can cause bad breath. Although you can mask the smell temporarily by brushing your teeth or using mouthwash, there’s no real option but to wait until the food is eliminated from your body. What Else Can Cause Bad Breath? There are several other reasons as to why you might have persistent bad breath. For example, if you snore frequently or sleep with your mouth open, your mouth becomes drier. The drier conditions allow bacteria to thrive. Smokers often have bad breath because inhaling the smoke dries out the oral tissues, and it can affect oral health in other ways too, none of which are good!…
