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

Nitrous Gas for Dental Sedation in Oakville area
It’s estimated that 35 million Americans face serious apprehension and anxiety about dental procedures. An additional 10 to 12 million Americans are “dental phobic” and avoid dental care altogether. Dr. Shefali Tuli and her team at Burloak Centre Dentistry in Oakville, ON want to help patients with this fear they face using nitrous gas for dental sedation.

Sedation Dentistry

When you think about having your teeth cleaned or receiving even a minor filling, does your body tense up with anxiety or fear? It’s important to understand that you are not alone in this. Many people are so afraid of the dentist that they don’t ever go in, even if it’s just for a routine cleaning. For those who avoid seeing the dentist or who face this anxiety leading up to each appointment, sedation dentistry may be the answer. Sedation may be used for everything from the most invasive procedures to the most basic exams in order to put the patient at ease.

Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous oxide, commonly known as laughing gas, is an odourless, colourless gas that, when combined with oxygen, helps put the patient into a state of relaxation during dental procedures. The gas (along with the oxygen mixed in) is inhaled by the patient using a mask that is gently placed over the nose before starting the procedure so the patient is free of any anxieties or fears. Nitrous oxide is completely safe and incredibly effective and, unlike many other sedation methods, is not long-lasting. Once the mask is removed, the effects will wear off within minutes and you are free to drive yourself home.

The Experience of Nitrous Oxide

If you have never used nitrous oxide for sedation purposes, you may wonder how it feels? Patients who have been administered laughing gas can expect to experience:
  • A warm and tingling sensation spread throughout the arms and legs
  • A feeling of overall well-being and euphoria. Some patients report a feeling of floating
  • Sleepiness and difficulty keeping their eyes open
After the sedation, it’s common for the patient to not remember much from the procedure. Patients find that the use of nitrous oxide for sedation provides an incredibly effective experience that allows them to overcome any dental fear or anxiety that they felt going into the procedure. If you are facing these fears and are interested in this form of sedation therapy, please give Dr. Shefali Tuli and her team at Burloak Centre Dentistry in Oakville, ON a call at 905.581.4436 to set up an appointment.
