January 18, 2018Is it painful to get Dental Implants?

Dental implants are the biggest advancement to dentistry of the century.  You may have heard details about drilling and screwing of dental implants into the jaw, it sounds painful, and seems like a major surgical procedure with associated trauma and pain. In reality, placement of dental implants in your jaw bone is easy and done with minimal trauma.  As compared to performing diseased tooth removal, implant procedures are rather easy to sit through. During placement dental implants have been associated with little discomfort under single local anesthesia. Newer techniques have made it easier. The ideal time to place a dental implant is at the time of tooth removal – immediate dental implant.  Your gentle dentist at Oakville North Dentistry will help you answer all the questions, and are confident to offer implants, titanium and ceramic, at our practice.

November 13, 2017Cures for the grinding holiday stress

One of the most stressful times of the year is during the holidays. Between Thanksgiving and New Years, partying and family gatherings are at the top of the list.  But for many, somewhere along the way, the stress, the unrealistic expectations and the unreasonable demands show up; and the next thing you know, you’re anxious, depressed, over-tired. If you have been waking up with your teeth clenched, and your head muscles in painful spasm, you might seriously consider seeing your dentist for some resolution, before you do some significant harm to your dentition or you temporal mandibular joint (TMJ).   Most people are unaware that they grind their teeth. However, a dull, constant headache or sore jaw is a telltale symptom. In some cases, bruxism can result in a fracturing, loosening, or loss of teeth. The chronic grinding or clenching may wear teeth down to stumps. Definitely not pretty, and real expensive to restore. So prevention really is key here.   I remember one patient told me that she felt she had literally “eaten her teeth away.”  She felt that her entire face had shrunk, making her look much older and more worn than her true age. And her lower teeth were now the same size as grains of rice.   If you suspect you may be grinding your teeth, talk to us, at Oakville North Dentistry.. Not only can we examine your mouth and jaw for signs of bruxism, but we can also fabricate a custom night guard to prevent further damage.

September 22, 2017Periodontal disease (gum disease)

“ Both periodontal disease and cardiovascular disease are inflammatory diseases and inflammation is the common mechanism that connects them”, says Dr. Cochran, PhD.   A consensus paper on the relationship between heart disease and gum disease was recently developed. Managing one disease may reduce the risk for the other.   At Oakville North Dentistry we have experienced dentists and hygienists who are trained to treat periodontal disease with a focus on reducing and controlling the bacterial accumulations and eliminating inflammation.

August 18, 2017PORCELAIN RESTORATIONS

Porcelain is the most biocompatible, hypo-allergenic, non-metallic restorative material of which we are aware at this time.  Porcelain restorations are also dramatically less effected by factors that influence longevity of other fillings: restorative technique, filling size, your body chemistry, and your nutritional intake.  Porcelain restorations (inlays, onlays & crowns) can last 12-15 years or longer.  At Oakville North Dentistry we strive to be the best dental office in Oakville and we offer the best quality porcelain to our patients .  Porcelain restorations cost more than ceramic composites initially, but porcelain’s longevity decreases the potential need for more dental treatment.

August 10, 2017A REASON TO SMILE MORE!

Smiling comes easy for some people, but for others, it can be more of a challenge. Smiling lowers stress; when we feel anger, fear, and unhappiness, it shows on our face, it also shows inside our bodies as we begin to produce more of the stress hormone known as cortisol.  Over time, this can lead to some pretty serious medical problems, but when we smile and laugh, our bodies produce endorphins.  They work at reducing the cortisol and naturally lower stress.  They’ve even been known to relieve pain. If you are unhappy with your smile, call Dr. Deniz or Dr. Bighiu at Oakville North Dentistry 289-725-0000, so we can help you achieve a naturally healthier smile you can be confident in.

July 29, 2017Our patients love PLATELET FIBRIN THERAPY!

Better Healing From Within Tooth loss and damage to the jaw bone and tissues are often challenging for your dentist during oral surgery or implant placement. Without enough support in the jaw bone, dental implants cannot be immediately stabilized and tissue healing can be a long process. The solution to these and other difficult situations is a new Platelet Therapy created from your own blood. Leukocyte – Platelet Rich Fibrin (L-PRF) changes all the rules as it promotes healing and bone growth from within your own body.  Unlike other treatments that use artificial com­ponents, Platelet Therapy with L-PRF uses only your own blood. With a simple blood draw and an advanced technology protocol, L-PRF is individually made for you – from you. The end results are improved healing response and significantly less recovery time. What is Platelet Fibrin Therapy?  Platelet Fibrin Therapy uses L-PRF clots to promote healing. It is as painless as a routine blood draw. L-PRF uses your own blood, with NO additive whatsover. Reducing the risk of allergy, or side effects because your own concentrated platelets, with their own unique healing abilities are simply re-introduced at the site of your extraction, implant placement or other surgical site. How are L-PRF clots created?  L-PRF clots are first created by taking a small blood sample from you. The blood sample tubes are spun according to a specific process. This creates a matrix or blood clot. The matrix is then removed from the tube and placed in a device designed to compress the matrix to a desired thickness. How does L-PRF work to heal? L-PRF provides a concentrated release of healing proteins, creates a scaffolding to help direct healing and also forms a more efficient network for cells to communicate with other cells and tissues. Due to the high concentration of platelets and leu­kocytes within the L-PRF clot, the fibrin releases growth factors for up to14 days after placement. This is when the body is repair­ing itself and needs the extra help to heal. What types of conditions are treated with L-PRF? Currently L-PRF is being used by our dentists at Oakville North Dentistry for dental and oral maxillofacial surgical procedures, including dental implants, bone defects, extraction sockets, bone atrophy.
