We believe that bringing your child to the dentist should be a positive experience. Scheduling an appointment as soon as he or she has teeth can reduce fears by establishing a routine and a trusting relationship. The dentist will examine the gums and check the teeth making sure everything is fine.
Realize that you are not alone with your fears - many others have or had the same fears. Building a relationship with your dentist is key. There are also medical solutions... A prescription for anti-anxiety pills and nitrous oxide (laughing gas) both are available at our clinic.

Most people are aware of some of the risk factors for heart disease and stroke: family history, diet, obesity, smoking, a sedentary lifestyle (couch potato syndrome), aging or a pre-existing condition such as diabetes. But how many of us know that infected teeth and gums may pose an additional risk?

“It is well accepted by the health community that untreated chronic infection can compromise health,” said Dr. Doug Pettigrew, a Periodontist based in Edmonton. “Gum disease is no different. If you have pockets of infection around all of your teeth that is equivalent to having a 6" open wound on your skin. Your body is weakened from fighting the infection and at the same time, the bacteria and chemicals that enter your blood stream can, in turn, compromise your health.”

Studies have suggested that chemical mediators of inflammation released in untreated periodontal disease may result in changes in the inner lining of blood vessels including those leading to the heart that increase the risk of atherosclerosis and blood clots. Although there is no proof of direct cause-and-effect, there is evidence that periodontal disease appears to be moderately associated with coronary artery disease, stroke and peripheral vascular disease.

Early childhood caries, also known as baby bottle caries, baby bottle tooth decay, and bottle rot, is a syndrome characterized by severe decay in the teeth of infants or young children. Early childhood caries (ECC) is a very common bacteria infection. Its prevalence is epidemic; in the US its rate is highest in minority and rural populations, at times infecting over 70% of the children. A large body of scientific evidence indicates that ECC is an infectious and transmissible disease, with Streptococcus mutans the primary microbiological agent in the disease. The disease process begins with the transmission of the bacteria to the child, usually from the primary caretaker, the mother. Mothers with untreated dental disease present a very high risk to their children.

"Decay occurs when sweetened liquids are given and are left clinging to an infant's teeth for long periods. Many sweet liquids cause problems, including milk, formula and fruit juice. Bacteria in the mouth use these sugars as food. They then produce acids that attack the teeth. Each time your child drinks these liquids, acids attack for 20 minutes or longer. After many attacks, the teeth can decay." The ADA adds, "It's not just what you put in your child's bottle that causes decay, but how often — and for how long a time.

Everyone knows that regular brushing and flossing can prevent cavities. But did you know it helps protect your gums from periodontal disease, too? Healthy gums are more important than you think. In fact, untreated periodontal gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss in adults!

Brushing and flossing remove plaque before it hardens into calculus (tartar). When calculus forms around the base of your teeth, it irritates your gums, making them red, puffy and tender. Your gums start to recede.

The tartar attacks the newly-uncovered areas of your teeth. Little by little, your gums recede and your teeth lose the solid support of your gums. The vulnerable roots of your teeth become exposed.

Your dentist checks for periodontal disease during regular dental check-ups. Let your dentist know if you are experiencing any of the symptoms below:

  • Your gums bleed when you brush or floss
  • Your teeth feel looser
  • Your gums become red, puffy and tender
  • Your partial dentures don’t fit as well
  • Your teeth become more sensitive to heat or cold
  • It hurts when you chew
Periodontal disease can also be caused by:
  • Improperly-aligned teeth and overcrowding
  • Poorly fitting bridges and partial dentures
  • Smoking
  • Some medications, like oral contraceptives
  • Diabetes, leukemia or anemia
  • Pregnancy
The best way to avoid periodontal disease is to brush and floss daily and visit your dentist twice a year. With good oral and dental care, your teeth and gums can last a lifetime.

Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorder affects the muscles and joints of the jaw. It can cause:

  • Headaches
  • Earaches
  • Neck and back pain
  • Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
  • Clicking and pain in jaw

It may be caused by:

  • Missing or crooked teeth
  • Teeth grinding
  • Malocclusion
  • Overbite
  • Head or neck injuries

If you suffer from the symptoms of TMJ Disorder, please talk to your dentist. He may be able to help.

  • A soft bristled toothbrush should be chosen as hard bristles tend to cause gingival recession. Soft bristles are more flexible, clean beneath the gingival margin and do not damage your gums.
  • The head should be small allowing it to effectively clean hard-to-reach areas of the teeth.
  • The handle should allow comfortable gripping by the user.
  • The shape of the neck or handle does not play any significant role (as claimed by manufacturers) in improving the effectiveness of a tooth brush and should be chosen on your preference.
  • Powered toothbrushes (electric toothbrushes) hold no significant advantage over the manual ones as believed by many. Powered toothbrushes should be used for handicapped or bedridden patients, children, patients with Orthodontic appliances, patients lacking fine motor skills although they can chosen just on personal preference.
  • A toothbrush should be replaced every 3 months or when the bristles start to wear, whichever comes first.
  • A toothbrush whose bristles wears inside a couple of weeks is indicative of overzealous brushing and should be discouraged as it causes gingival recession, bacteremia, painful ulceration of the gingiva.
  • A toothbrush whose bristles show no sign of wear and tear even after 5-6 months indicates that the brushing is excessively gentle.
  • Few toothbrushes have been introduced which are color coded by a dye which fades and reminds the person to change his/her brush.
    • Brushing sans flossing is comparable to cleaning only 65% of your body leaving the 35% dirty which simply means you are not completely clean.
    • Flossing removes the tiny trapped food particles and also the plaque trapped between the teeth which a tooth brush cannot reach.
    • It also prevents the formation of tartar which if formed can only be removed by your dentist.
    • Recent studies have indicated flossing reduces the risk of heart attack. Hard to believe? Well, this is attributed to the close relation between gum disease and heart attack. The gum disease is prevented by regular flossing which decreases the risk for heart attack.
