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

Wisdom teeth removal from dentist in Oakville, ON



Oakville, ON dental practice offers the removal of impacted wisdom teeth

posted by

Wisdom teeth are the most commonly extracted teeth. Although for some individuals, these teeth never erupt. For others, impacted wisdom teeth require removal to prevent additional dental problems. If you are searching for answers regarding your wisdom teeth, contact Dr. Shefali Tuli and the team at Burloak Centre Dentistry in Oakville, ON.

Why do we have wisdom teeth?

Wisdom teeth are our third and final set of molars. For most patients, these teeth appear between the ages of 18 and 25. Anthropologically speaking, the additional molars may have been necessary for our ancestor’s diet and chewing hard foods. Fast-forward to now, our faces and jaws are smaller and we no longer have the same hunter-gatherer lifestyles. Thus, the extra teeth are not needed and do not fit in our mouths.

Reasons for wisdom teeth removal

Some patients never acquire wisdom teeth. For some, the teeth erupt naturally without problems. Then, there are others who not only get their wisdom teeth but also have issues with them. The majority of individuals end up having these teeth removed. The most common reasons for wisdom teeth extraction include the following:
  • The teeth are impacted meaning there is not enough room for them to erupt naturally.
  • Damage to the adjacent teeth has already been caused.
  • There is potential for future dental problems if the teeth are not removed.

What to expect

At Burloak Centre Dentistry, we understand that not all wisdom teeth lead to problems or need to be extracted. We utilize x-rays to assess your teeth and underlying structures. If problems do arise, we will discuss your treatment options. If removal is selected as the best treatment option, we will use precision techniques and a gentle touch to remove the teeth quickly and comfortably. Following your dentist’s advice after the procedure ensures a faster recovery and optimal results.

If you are concerned about your wisdom teeth, contact Burloak Centre Dentistry to learn more about your options. 905.581.4436
