Do You Have a Dental Emergency?

We are offering emergency care only for our current patients at [...]

New Review Suggests Protruding Teeth More Likely to Be Damaged in the Long Run

When you smile, chances are you are showing a simple smile with flat teeth arranged in a curving arch as they contour to your face. Not everyone has the luck to have flat teeth and occasionally, teeth come in at a variety of angles. Some teeth may even be altered by simple acts like sucking [...]

How to Avoid Expensive Dentistry

Does your smile look this healthy? Teeth are valuable! In fact, your mouth's economic value is over $100,000, and that is on the low side.  A dental implant and crown, the most lifelike tooth replacement, cost about $5000 each, and most people have 28 teeth in order to smile and chew well.  Doesn't [...]

What Do Healthy Teeth Look Like?

You look at your teeth in the mirror every day when you brush them, and they look “fine” to you. Sure, there are some old fillings, but nothing hurts, so it must be okay…right? Interestingly, dental decay is usually completely painless. If something hurts, the problem may be bigger than you think. What Does My [...]

All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth

Traumatic injury to the front teeth is a problem we deal with all the time in the dental office.  My observation about the number of Canadian men with a crown on one or more front teeth leads me to the question of how the injury occurred...Hockey? Beer?  Or a combination of hockey and [...]

What does this have to do [...]

Don’t Tell Your Dentist What To Do! Kanata Ottawa Dentist

In this very interesting era of internet usage, it is so common for us to receive treatment requests from patients based on their own research. We receive almost daily emails through our website saying things like "I read online that x-rays are bad for you, so I don't want them!" I am all for patients making educated [...]

Don’t Put It Off Any Longer! – Kanata Ottawa Dentist

This patient loves her new smile and can't wait to treat the bottom teeth! One of my favorite long-time patients told me a story today about her uncle. He was a very proud man, but had many dental problems when he was young that led him to wearing a denture to replace his [...]

Do I REALLY Have Cavities?

All of the dark staining in these teeth are cavities! And the black spots between the white filling and tooth can be easily repaired at this early stage by resealing the filling edges...painfree! When I was in dental school (a long time ago!), we were taught to "just watch and wait" in cases of early [...]
