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!

What can cause a dental emergency in Oakville, ON?

posted by

A dental emergency can happen to anyone, at any time. Be assured that the team at Burloak Centre Dentistry in Oakville ON is here to help, with calming advice and priority treatment. We also believe it is beneficial to understand situations that may trigger urgent dental problems, so that you might avoid them.

Surprising causes of dental emergencies

  • Pulpitis – This inflammation of the nerves and blood supply at the center of a tooth can result in an acute toothache. The primary cause of pulpitis is bacterial infection from untreated caries (tooth decay). This condition may also present in a tooth that has had multiple restorative treatments. To avoid this type of emergency, don't ignore a cavity, and maintain regular dental checkups.
  • Abscess – This deep infection is usually caused by severe tooth decay. However, a seemingly minor chip or crack that happened years ago may gradually allow bacterial infiltration. The infection develops suddenly and unexpectedly. Root canal therapy or extraction is in order.
  • Pericoronitis – Sometimes a tooth (usually a wisdom tooth) fails to fully emerge. Gum tissue over the partially erupted tooth can become quite swollen and painful. Antibiotics get the infection under control. Then the tissue and possibly the tooth should be removed.
  • Tooth fracture, luxation, or avulsion – You know these conditions as a broken, loose, or knocked out tooth. You might expect the risk if you participate in contact sports, but these emergencies happen in many other ways, too. Winters in the Burlington/Oakville area have plenty of potential for snow and ice . . . and slips and falls that can damage teeth. Normal daily activities are also common culprits of this kind of dental emergency – cycling accidents, home maintenance tasks, and kids roughhousing.
