Welcome back to Burloak Centre Dentistry
We're thrilled to share good news with you! We were given the go ahead by regulatory authorities allowing us to resume seeing patients at the office for all dental appointments. This includes fillings, crowns, hygiene, orthodontics, Invisalign, cosmetic procedures, dentures, etc.

We've made significant changes to how we manage patient flow and our office protocols for patient treatment - all with the sole purpose of ensuring you and your dental team remain safe by minimizing the risk of spreading the virus. These changes include physical barriers, allowing one person in the waiting room at a time, closed treatment rooms when required, air purifiers, enhanced PPE for patients and staff, and more.

There are new guidelines for patients as well. These include pre-screening before your appointment, hand hygiene, wearing a mask, and maintaining physical distancing. Details will be shared with you before your visit and also on our new COVID/Patient Safety page on our website.

We're excited about the changes to make your visit as safe and convenient as possible.

Our team is contacting all patients to reschedule missed appointments. If you need an appointment immediately, kindly contact the office at 905.581.4436, and we'll get you in as soon as possible. As you can imagine, we have a backlog of cancelled appointments from mid-March and your continued patience and understanding is truly appreciated as we get back and into a new routine at the clinic.
Thank-you for your patience, understanding, and words of support during the closure. We can't wait to see you again soon!

Sincerely,

Dr Tuli, Dr. Jha, and the rest of the team at Burloak Centre Dentistry

Your dentist in Oakville helps you take the best care of your child's teeth and gums

Parents hate to see their children experience sickness or pain. When a dental problem causes pain, your dentist can quickly repair the damaged tooth and restore comfort. However, the goal of your dentist in Oakville is to help you learn how to take the best care of your child's teeth and gums so that problems like cavities can be avoided.

Though a very common dental problem, cavities can, in fact, be prevented. Also known as dental caries, cavities develop as a result of natural bacteria that live in the mouth. These living organisms feed on sugar and food residue left behind after snacks and meals, and then secrete waste that is toxic to oral tissues. If the mouth is not sufficiently cleaned regularly, cavities will develop and potentially cause pain in the way of a toothache.

The risk of cavities, due to excess bacteria, is impacted by several factors, all of which are in our control:
  • Sugar is not the only culprit in cavity development. Though sugary foods and beverages should be limited or avoided altogether, refined carbohydrates like bread and pasta are also ideal food choices for harmful oral bacteria.
  • In addition to sugary treats, the potential for cavities is also increased in those who regularly consume acidic foods and beverages. Acid is hidden in many common foods, such as sports drinks or certain salad dressings. The problem with acidity in foods and beverages is that the enamel, which protects the inner parts of the tooth, is broken down as acid remains on teeth.
  • Research has shown that the potential for cavities is higher in those whose family members also have cavities.
  • Dental sealants protect vulnerable back teeth from oral bacteria by filling the deep grooves found on the chewing surface of molars.
Sadly, cavities are often not detected until a tooth has been damaged and pain has occurred. With regular dental visits every six months, it becomes more likely that dental problems will be detected very early or, better yet, prevented. Your child will experience excellent, fun dental care with our team. Contact Burloak Centre Dental for your visit.
