Teeth Grinding Causes and Solutions

Top Dentists in Brampton, Family Dentist, Kids Dentist in Brampton, Dental offices, Teeth Grinding Solutions, Dental Info, Dental Facts, Stress Solutions,Teeth grinding can be caused not just by stress and anxiety but by sleep disorders, an abnormal bite or teeth that are missing or crooked. The symptoms of teeth grinding include: 

- dull headaches 
- jaw soreness 
- teeth that are painful or loose 
- fractured teeth

Your dentist can fit you with a night guard to protect your teeth during sleep. If stress is the cause you need to find a way to relax. Meditation, counselling and exercise can all help reduce stress and anxiety.

Teeth grinding is also common in children. However, because their teeth and jaws change and grow so quickly it is not usually a damaging habit that requires treatment and most outgrow it by adolescence. 

Although in adults teeth grinding is often the result of stress, the same is not always true with children. Other possible causes of teeth grinding in children include:

- irritation in the mouth
- allergies
- misaligned teeth

If you’re concerned about your child’s teeth grinding, ask your child’s dentist about the potential causes and, if necessary, the possible solutions. (ADA)


Is periodontal disease contagious?

Brampton, Dentists, Dental Info, Gum Disease, Dentists in Brampton, Dental Offices, Information on Periodontal Disease, Brampton Periodontist,
Research has shown that periodontal/gum disease is caused by the inflammatory reaction to bacteria under the gums, so periodontal disease technically may not be contagious. However, the bacteria that cause the inflammatory reaction can be spread through saliva. This means that if one of your family members has periodontal disease, it’s a good idea to avoid contact with their saliva by not sharing eating utensils or oral health equipment. If you notice that your spouse or a family member has the warning signs of a possible periodontal problem (bleeding, red and swollen gums, or bad breath) you may want to suggest that they see a dentist or periodontist for an exam. It may help to protect the oral health of everyone in the family. (APP)

Can children be at risk for developing periodontal disease? Brampton Dentist

Periodontal Disease in Kids, Brampton Dentists, Dental offices in Brampton, Top Dentists in Brampton, Gum Disease, Toothbrushing, Flossing, Kids Dentist in Brampton, Brampton Periodontists and implant Specialist,
Periodontal disease is rarely found in children, and only sometimes found in adolescents. However, children should still learn the importance of keeping their teeth and gums healthy to prevent periodontal disease in the future. Children should brush their teeth twice a day and learn how to floss properly- if children learn how to floss at an early age, they will be more likely to make it a lifetime habit. These two simple acts will help protect their teeth and gums from periodontal disease.
As a parent, you should also be aware of the warning signs of periodontal disease, which include red, swollen, bleeding gums or bad breath that won’t go away. If your child develops any of these symptoms, tell your dental professional right away. It’s also a good idea to ensure your dental professional knows your complete family history, as genetics can play an important role in the early development of periodontal disease. (AAP

Dental Veneers - Dentist in Brampton

Dental Veneers, Dentists in Brampton, Dental Offices, Dental Info,
Veneers are strong, thin pieces of porcelain that are bonded to the teeth. They are used to repair chipped, decayed or stained teeth and may help in closing gaps between teeth. With a bit of contouring, veneers may also correct slightly crowded or overlapping teeth. If your teeth have discoloured with age, a veneer may improve their appearance. Veneers can also be used for cosmetic reasons instead of crowns, which are more often used for badly damaged or decayed teeth. The tooth enamel needs to be ground down slightly in order to accommodate the veneer. Veneer preparations frequently require the use of local anesthetic and, depending on colour and shade, may take more than one appointment to complete. (Ontario Dental Association)
For more information on dental Veneers be sure to contact one of our dental professionals 905-458-6620.


Bulimia, Anorexia Nervosa and Your Teeth - Brampton Dentist

Bulimia, Anorexia Nervosa, Your Teeth, Brampton Dentist, Brampton Dental Office, Dentistry,
Both anorexia and bulimia are serious eating disorders. They occur when men or women have an extreme fear of becoming overweight. This can lead not only to excessive dieting, but sometimes, death.

Both conditions have implications for your teeth because your body is not getting the minerals, vitamins, proteins and other nutrients that are needed to maintain good oral health and good overall health.

In addition, a person who is bulimic may binge eat and then vomit. When this occurs the acids that break down your food eat away at the tooth enamel and may wreak havoc on your mouth. Translucent and worn teeth, bad breath or a swollen mouth, throat and glands may result. The Ontario Dental Association.

WHY SHOULD I VISIT A DENTIST? - Dentistry in Brampton

Brampton Dentist, Dentists in Brampton, Kids Dental Brampton, Dental Info, Dental Check Ups and Cleaning, Tooth Facts,

Regular check-ups are important for cleaning, the detection of cavities and periodontal examination. Plaque and tartar can build up in areas that are not easily reached through home maintenance. These can be removed during a dental cleaning to prevent cavities and gum disease.

While, for some patients, semi-annual visits are sufficient for cleaning and detection of cavities, patients’ needs do vary and patients should discuss the frequency of visits with their dentist.

Patients should also contact their dentist immediately, if their gums bleed, teeth become hypersensitive to temperature or pressure, or in the event of tooth pain or abscess.

For more information contact one of our dental professionals 905-458-6620.

Proper Way to FLOSS


Flossing removes plaque and bacteria that you cannot reach with your toothbrush. If you don't floss, you are missing more than one-third of your tooth surface. Plaque is the main cause of gum disease. It is an invisible bacterial film that develops on your teeth every day.

Within 24 to 36 hours, plaque hardens into tartar (also called calculus), which can only be removed by professional cleaning. Floss at least once a day, and plaque never gets the chance to harden into tartar. Getting into the habit of daily flossing is easier when you floss while doing something else like watching TV or listening to music, for example.

How to floss your teeth

Brampton Family Dentist,Step 1
Take a length of floss equal to the distance from your hand to your shoulder.
Wrap it around your index and middle fingers, leaving about two inches between your hands.
dentists Brampton, Brampton Family Dentist, Dental Info,

Step 2
Slide the floss between your teeth and wrap it into a "C" shape around the base of the tooth and gently under the gumline. Wipe the tooth from base to tip two or three times.

flossing your teeth, brampton Dental Offices, Best Dentist in BramptonStep 3
Be sure to floss both sides of every tooth. Don't forget the backs of your last molars. Go to a new section of the floss as it wears and picks up particles.

Dentist, Brampton, Brampton Dental Implants, Implant Specialists,
Dental implants are essentially artificial tooth roots. They can be used to replace a single missing tooth, multiple missing teeth, support a denture or restore an entire mouth. Implants come in different shapes and textures and are made of titanium. Titanium unlike other metals is not rejected by the body. It is very strong and is biologically inert. To be a candidate for a dental implant two criteria must be met. Your gum tissue should be healthy overall and there must be enough bone present to support the implant. Following the extraction of a tooth the supporting bone begins to shrink both in height and width. Even if the bone shrinkage has been excessive an implant may still be an option. Depending on the situation, we may be able to grow back the lost bone using regenerative procedures so that an implant can be placed. Implants can also be used to support a bridge, a removable denture or a fixed denture.

For more information on singe tooth or multiple dental Implants call our office to speak to one of our dental professionals.

BAD HABITS FOR DENTITION - Brampton Dental Office

Joanna SAYS!

Nail Biting, Dentists in Brampton, Brampton Dental Office, Brampton Dentists,
There are a number of habits that can lead to damage of your tooth structure and surrounding tissues. Some damage can happen instantly as a chip or a crack and others can occur over a length of time. Listed below are a few of these habits:

- Nail Biting
- Chewing on ice
- Using teeth to tear or open items
- Holding items with your teeth for a length of time (toothpicks, pins, pens)
- Playing with oral piercings
- Clenching or grinding

It is important to understand how these particular habits can lead to tooth damage and to discuss with your dental professionals if you participate in any of them. Together you can work with them to help find ways to break these tendencies and if any harm has already occurred to your dentition how to restore it.

Information on Gingivitis - Brampton Dentists

Brampton Dentists, Information on Gum Disease,
Gingivitis is the mildest form of periodontal/gum disease. It causes the gums to become red, swollen, and bleed easily. There is usually little or no discomfort at this stage. Gingivitis is often caused by inadequate oral hygiene. Gingivitis is reversible with professional treatment and good oral home care.
Factors that may contribute to gingivitis include, diabetes, smoking, aging, genetic predisposition, systemic diseases and conditions, stress, inadequate nutrition, puberty, hormonal fluctuations, pregnancy, substance abuse, HIV infection, and certain medication use. (AAP)

Medical History - Keeping your Dentist Informed

best dentists in brampton, brampton dental office, dentists in brampton, kids dentists brampton,
When going to a new dental office everyone is asked to complete a medical history form. It is very important to complete the form thoroughly and include all medical conditions, medications, allergies, surgeries and treatments which have happened in the past or are currently being done. Some health conditions which may not seem important for a dental professional to be aware of can have significant effects on your oral health and some which require premedication before beginning dental procedures.

Medications being taken including herbal, vitamins, prescribed and over the counter might need preauthorization from a physician before beginning particular procedures or can effect another medication needed to help with oral health conditions.

At each dental visit your dental professional must be told about any changes that have occurred since last visits medical history update. Including changes with medications, recent hospital visits, new allergies or conditions being treated by a physician. With this information your dental professional will be able to provide you with treatment options that are safe for your oral health and overall health.

Tooth decay is not recognized when it's in the early stages and it is not something we can clearly see by looking in the mirror. For this reason it is exactly why, on top of good home oral health care, it is very important to see your dentist and dental hygienist regularly for dental cleanings and check ups. 
Tooth decay in the tooth enamel doesn't necessarily cause toothaches. Toothaches may start when the decay reaches the dentin, the softer mid-layer of a tooth that lies between the enamel and the pulp. Decayed teeth can be saved if they are identified while they affect only the enamel or dentin, however once the decay reaches the nerve of the tooth a root canal or an extraction may be necessary. 
To avoid root canals and extractions be sure to visit your dentist regularly.

BRUSHING – Don’t Rush Your Brush

Dentist peterborough, Peterborough Dental Offices, Kids Dentist peterborough,

How well you brush your teeth is more important than how often you brush. Remember it’s the spots you miss where the problems start. Here’s five tips to improve your brushing:
  1. Take the time to carefully and gently clean each tooth, ideally twice a day. The average person brushes for less than 35 seconds. A good brushing takes at least two to three minutes. Quick Tip: Keep brushing for as long as a song.
  2. Be gentle, particularly when cleaning where the gums meet the teeth. Hold the brush at a 45-degree angle to the gumline, and gently work the bristles back and forth using short strokes. Don’t forget to brush your tongue, too.
  3. Use a soft toothbrush which is less likely to damage your teeth and gums. Choose a size and shape that enables you to easily reach every tooth.
  4. Be sure to change your toothbrush frequently. Every three months is recommended; more often if you’ve been ill. Quick Tip:  New season – New toothbrush.
  5. Remember to floss too, since no amount of careful brushing, can clean between your teeth!

ROOT CANAL TREATMENTS (Endodontics) – What is Root Canal Treatment?

Today, with modern dentistry, root canal treatment has become a common form of treatment for diseased (abscessed) teeth. This treatment can be provided by your regular dentist or root canal specialist (Endodontist). Here’s how it’s done: In healthy teeth, the interior of the tooth is filled with tissue (pulp). Once the tooth is injured, cracked, or decayed, it is necessary to open the tooth and clean out the infected tissue in the centre. This space is then filled and the opening sealed. During the procedure the area around the tooth is frozen. Sometimes difficulties may be encountered during or after root canal treatment. This may require the use of medication or involve further treatment. A crown or cap may be necessary to protect the tooth, once the root canal treatment has been completed. Teeth that have had root canal treatment can stay as healthy and last as long as other teeth. In most instances, you won’t be able to feel or see a difference. Information as per the Ontario Dental Association.

Root Canals Brampton  


Melissa SAYS!
Dentist Brampton, Dental x-Rays,
Along with a dental examination dental x-rays are an important part of your dental health. Dental x-rays help your dentist diagnose cavities (that can not be seen by a visual examination), cracks in the tooth, diseases in the bone, periodontal or gum disease, infections underneath the gum, bone loss, abscesses, cysts or tumors.

X-rays can help diagnose problems early, when they are easily treatable and cost a lot less money. It is better to have a small filling done then to let it go until you are in pain. If there is pain or infection this means you have let the problem get too far and may need a lot of treatment which also increases time of treatment and cost.

On an individual basis, your dentist decides how often to take x-rays depending on the health of the oral cavity. If you are prone to cavities or have a lot of bone loss the dentist might suggest more frequent x-rays, then someone who has no bone loss and not prone to decay.

At our office we take digital x-rays. For more information on this or other topics, be sure to contact one of our dental professionals.

FLOSSING - Clean Between Your Teeth

Dentist Brampton, Brampton Dental Offices, Kids Dentist, Brampton Family Dentist,
Let’s face it – many people are still not flossing. This is a big problem if you want to keep your teeth and gums healthy for life. Flossing at least once a day cleans between the teeth and under the gumline where your toothbrush can’t reach and where most cavities and gum disease start. If you’re not flossing, you’re missing 35% of every tooth. It you haven’t flossed recently, it’ll take a while before flossing becomes an automatic part of your daily routine. Quick Tip: Floss every night before you brush, for maximum benefit. But soon your teeth won’t feel clean without it. Don’t worry if at first flossing causes slight bleeding, but if the bleeding continues for more than ten days, contact your dentist.

Here’s how to floss: Carefully ease the floss between the teeth, right down to the gumline. Gently wipe plaque from both sides of adjacent teeth. The goal is to arc the floss in a “C” shape following the contours of each tooth. Quick Tip: Beginners should start with waxed shred-resistant floss because it slides between the teeth more easily.

Dentist Brampton


Dentist Brampton, Periodontist Brampton,
For an implant to be successful there must be enough quality and quantity of bone where the implant is to be placed. The upper back jaw has traditionally been one of the most difficult areas to successfully place dental implants due to insufficient bone and the closeness to the sinus. If bone is lost in that area for reasons such as periodontal disease or tooth loss there might not be enough bone to place an implant. In such cases a sinus lift surgery may be necessary.

Sinus lift surgery can help correct this problem by raising the sinus floor and developing bone for the placement of dental implants. Several techniques can be used to raise the sinus and allow for new bone to form. In one common technique, an incision is made to expose the bone. Then a small circle is cut into the bone. This bony piece is lifted into the sinus cavity, much like a trap door, and the space underneath is filled with bone graft material. Your periodontist can explain your options for graft materials, which can regenerate lost bone and tissue.

Finally, the incision is closed and healing is allowed to take place. Depending on your individual needs, the bone usually will be allowed to develop for about four to 12 months before implants can be placed. After the implants are placed, an additional healing period is required. In some cases, the implant can be placed at the same time the sinus is augmented.

Undergoing sinus lift surgery has been shown to greatly increase your chances for successful implants that can last for years to come. Many patients experience minimal discomfort during this procedure. (AAP)

Dr. Annabel Braganza - Brampton Periodontist 


Dentist Brampton, Gum Disease,Periodontal Disease also known as gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, because it occurs at an age when cavities are usually a thing of the past and the initial symptoms often go unnoticed.

Here is what to watch for: gums that bleed when brushing; red, swollen or tender gums; or persistent bad breath.

Periodontal or gum disease is a bacterial infection of the gums, ligaments and bone that support the teeth and anchor them in the jaw. The bacteria which act mainly on certain carbohydrates, in our diets, are normal inhabitants of the mouth, living in a thin film called plaque. If plaque is not removed, it may eventually harden into tartar, a hard mineral shell that irritates and erodes healthy gum tissue. The early stage of gum disease is called gingivitis. If left untreated, pockets begin to form between the teeth and gum tissue and may erode the tissue which attaches the tooth to the jaw. This stage is called periodontitis.

Gum disease can be treated at all stages, but most importantly, it can be prevented. Here's how: Brush twice daily, floss daily, eat a balanced diet and visit your dentist regularly for a preventive check up and professional cleaning which is essential in the prevention of gum disease.

CAN A TOOTH BE REPLACED? Bridge/Implants/Dentures

Bridge/Implants/Dentures (Prosthodontics)

Can A Tooth Be Replaced?

You can diligently floss and brush your teeth and still lose a tooth, to gum disease or accident. If this happens, the tooth should be replaced in order to restore your smile, regain your chewing and prevent other teeth from shifting. There are three main types of artificial teeth and each one is designed for a particular situation. They are dental implants, removable dentures and fixed bridges.

A DENTAL IMPLANT is made by surgically placing one or more small metal posts beneath the gum into the jawbone. In a few months, when they are attached to the surrounding bone, they are exposed and have the artificial tooth or teeth attached to them.

A REMOVABLE DENTURE replaces all of the lost teeth in the arch with one appliance. The denture is held in place by clasping some of the remaining teeth or by suction where none of the natural teeth are left.

A FIXED BRIDGE is a replacement that is cemented to the adjacent teeth and cannot be removed.

Daniella SAYS!
Dental Anxiety, Dentist, Brampton, Brampton Dentists, Childs First Dental Visit, Dental Cleanings,
To help the dental visit go more smoothly:

1. Tell your child about the visit but limit the amount of details given.
2. Answer any questions with simple, to-the-point, answers. Let the dentist answer more complex or detailed questions as dentists are trained to describe things to children in a non-threatening and easy-to-understand language.
3. Be careful of the words that you use such as "hurt" and "pain."
4. Be sure not to tell your child about an unpleasant dental experience that you've had.
5. Explain things in a matter that they'll understand how important it is to maintain healthy teeth and gums and that the dentist is a friendly doctor whose job it is to help do this.
6. Don't promise a reward for going to the dentist.

Ways a dentist can calm an anxious child:

1. Voice control. The dentist uses a friendly voice, which could become firmer if necessary.
2. Simple instructions. The dentist will use simple words (tell, show, do) to explain a procedure and may demonstrate the procedure on a doll or another person before performing the procedure on the child.
3. Positive reinforcement. The dentist will use praise and compliments to reward for good behaviour.
4. Distraction. The dentist will tell stories or engage the child in conversation to draw the child's attention away from the work being completed.
5. Nonverbal communication. The dentist uses body language, such as a simple smile to reinforce positive behaviour.
6. Sedation. The dentist may use sedation to help the child relax and be more comfortable, if necessary. The two most common types of sedation that might be used in children are nitrous oxide ("laughing gas") or an oral sedative (such as Valium).

For more information on this or other topics be sure to contact one of our dental professionals.

WHAT IS PERIODONTICS? Dentist/Periodontist Brampton

Brampton Periodontics and Implant Specialist, Brampton Dentists, Brampton Gum Specialist,Periodontics is the branch of dentistry concerned with the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of the diseases and conditions of the supporting and surrounding tissues of the teeth or their substitutes. The term is derived from the Greek word peri, for around, and odont, for tooth.

The destruction of the supporting tissues around teeth is primarily due to bacterial accumulation from improper cleaning. Most people will have some form of periodontal disease during their lifetime. The majority can be treated by their family dentist. However, when the disease progresses so that pockets are formed and bone loss occurs, then more advanced treatment by a periodontist is recommended.

A periodontist in Ontario must successfully complete a general dental degree and a two- or three-year postgraduate training in periodontics at an accredited facility (or its equivalent) and pass a specialty examination before being licensed. Periodontists are trained in many surgical procedures, such as bone grafting, sinus lifting, and implant placement, as well as the surgical and non-surgical treatment of periodontal diseases and the diagnosis, treatment planning and maintenance of the dental implant and its supporting structures.

Information is per the Ontario Dental Association.
