Bring your iPod.

Do the sounds of the dental office make you nervous? Why not bring your Mp3 player or iPod to your next dental appointment. You can drown out the sounds of the office with your favourite music or a guided relaxation piece.

Guided relaxation or meditation is a popular and effective way to reduce stress and help the mind and body relax. Most guided relaxation or meditation pieces walk you through a series of deep breathing and visualizations exercises that put your body into a deep state of relaxation.

Deep breathing on it’s own will do the same thing. The next time you find yourself feeling anxious at the dental office (or anywhere) try the following:

Inhale slowly through the nose and direct the breath into the lower portion of your belly. Hold the breath for a few seconds and then exhale slowly through the nose or the mouth. Repeating this for as little as 2 or 3 minutes will cause you to relax.


Do Your Dental Benefits Renew in January?

Did you know that many dental benefit plans renew in January?
Dental benefits allow a certain dollar amount to be used toward your annual dental care. If you do not use your whole benefit during the year the benefit does not carry forward to the next year.

If your plan has just renewed then you have your entire yearly allowance available to you. This is the perfect time to talk to our friendly staff about any treatment you still might need.

If you have any questions regarding your treatment needs please give us a call at 905-877-0107 or email us at and we will be happy to assist you.


Nitrous Oxide

Nitrous Oxide Sedation or “Laughing Gas” is a commonly used type of inhalation sedation. Nitrous oxide is a fast-acting gas that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through the nose for the duration of your dental appointment. It induces a state of relaxation reducing any worry or anxiety that may be associated with dental treatment.

What are the advantages of using Nitrous Oxide Sedation?

  • It is very safe and has few side effects.
  • Unlike other forms of anaesthsia, with Nitrous Oxide Sedation you are still conscious and able to respond to the dentist’s questions and instructions.
  • It is fast-acting and induces a pleasurable state in only minutes.
  • Nitrous oxide is only administered for the duration of your appointment. Once the inhalation process has stopped your body will return to it’s normal state within minutes.

What are dental veneers and under what conditions would you recommend them to a patient?

Dental veneers help create a bright, white smile with beautifully aligned teeth. Dental veneers are thin, custom designed shells of tooth-coloured material that are designed to cover the front side of teeth. The two most common materials used in the fabrication of dental veneers are composite resin and porcelain veneers. Porcelain veneers typically last longer and look more natural. Porcelain veneers are fabricated in a dental laboratory and are bonded to the teeth with resin cement.

Dental veneers help to create a more natural, great looking smile. Possible conditions of teeth that veneers would help with include:

  1. Worn Enamel: Over time, the enamel may become worn, dulled and discoloured.
  2. Chipped teeth: Teeth naturally wear down with time, creating chips, cracks or a generally uneven appearance.
  3. Spacing between teeth: Some people are born with abnormal spacing between their teeth or teeth that look too small or malformed.
  4. Uneven Teeth: Uneven teeth can result from tooth grinding or general wear and tear.

Dental veneers are esthetically pleasing and can also serve a functional purpose by protecting the surface of a damaged tooth. Once veneers are bonded into place, they are relatively strong and durable. If you are interested in veneers, ask your dentist if veneers are appropriate for you.
