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

dental care from your Oakville, ON dentist aimed at cavity prevention

One of the most common problems seen by dentists is cavities. Many children, and most adults, have at least one tooth that has been damaged by decay. Cavities can be prevented. With education, support, and preventive care, it is our hope to help our patients keep their teeth healthy and cavity free for life.

Cavities and tooth decay are the same thing, an area on the surface of a tooth that has become very weak. The increasing weakness of enamel will eventually cause a hole to develop. Once the cavity has developed, the inner areas of the tooth become susceptible to infection.

The Role of Sugar in Cavity Development

When it comes to cavities, the number one perpetrator has been identified as sugar. The truth is, there is more to it than the simple suggestion to avoid sugary treats. While it is good for our teeth and our health to limit our sugar intake, it is also important to understand that sugar is not what eats away healthy enamel. Sugar is, instead, an indirect cause. This substance leaves residue on teeth after meals and snacks, providing nourishment to oral bacteria.

Oral bacteria are microorganisms that exist naturally in the body. Well fed, they excrete acidic by-products. As acid sits on enamel, it gradually destroys tooth material. Once an area has become weakened, it is primed for cavity development.

Acid is not only a by-product of bacteria that live in the mouth, it is also found in a great many foods and beverages. The regular consumption of sports and energy drinks, for instance, has been shown to cause erosion of tooth material within a matter of days. Erosion is not the same thing as a cavity, but this problem increases the risk of cavities due to the healthy tooth material wearing away.

Dental Care Tips and Treatments from Your Dentist in Oakville, ON Helps You Guard Your Smile

People who regularly visit their dentist have heard time and time again that they should brush their teeth twice a day and use dental floss daily. There is good reason for this type of education. Brushing for a full two minutes is the best way to wash away food debris and acid from tooth surfaces and gums. Without flossing, however, the areas in between teeth do not get cleaned. This is why so many cavities develop in between teeth.

In our dental office, we also provide professional cleanings and support for home care that will prolong oral health and keep your smile stunning. Schedule your appointment at Burloak Centre Dentistry today. Call 905.581.4436.
