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

With dental sealants, your pediatric dentist in Oakville adds an ounce of protection against cavities

Cavities are one of the biggest concerns in children's dentistry, making up one of the most common childhood diseases. Fortunately, your pediatric dentist in Oakville is very familiar with not only the statistics on cavities but also with the fact that most cavities develop in certain areas of the mouth. Using her advanced knowledge, Dr. Tuli works with individual patients and their parents to formulate a plan for cavity prevention.

While brushing and flossing are critical to the prevention of cavities in children, there are additional factors that must be considered. In addition to promoting and demonstrating proper technique for oral hygiene, Dr. Tuli also offers specific treatments aimed at reducing the risk of cavities, including fluoride treatments and dental sealants.

Dental sealants, in particular, are designed to minimize the risk of cavities in teeth that have pits and grooves on the chewing surface. The sooner that dental sealants can be applied to susceptible teeth, the better a child's chance of maintaining better oral health.

The problem with pits and fissures on tooth surfaces is that these deep areas can easily trap tiny particles of food and sugar residue from beverages. Due to their depth, pits can also be difficult to empty once debris has accumulated in these spaces. Where there is debris, there will be bacteria, and where there is bacteria, there will be weakening of enamel and, eventually, a cavity.

In a single office visit, usually following a professional cleaning, sealant material, which is a liquid plastic, can be applied to teeth with deep grooves. Following application of this liquid, the material is hardened using a special light. In several studies, sealants have been shown to inhibit the accumulation of debris in teeth and thus reduce the instance of cavities. With continued care, the applied dental sealant can last for several years. As a part of her routine dental exam, Dr. Tuli will assess the condition of dental sealants in patients who have received this treatment. If and when needed, sealants can be quickly and painlessly reapplied.

Dental sealant treatment is a wonderful preventive measure against tooth decay. In conjunction with daily brushing and flossing, sealants further increase protection against oral bacteria and their acidic byproduct. Daily hygiene remains an important part of every oral care regimen, even after teeth have been sealed, and we encourage our patients to stay vigilant in their healthy habits.
