Depending on its severity, a chipped tooth can be very painful, and even possibly cause an infection. This is why it’s of the utmost importance that you receive treatment from your Oakville dentist as soon as possible after damaging a tooth.

    Our mouths are under constant attack – and our bodies are continually fighting against all sorts of threats to oral health, in order to keep teeth and gums healthy.

    Are You Getting it Right for YOUR Kids? Caring for Kids Teeth: The Basics

    Now that Halloween’s over – and there’s still piles of candy left – it’s a great time to focus on a healthy routine for your children. Dr. Ray Liu, our practicing dentist here in both the Glen Abbey and River Oaks dental offices, reminds parents and kids that it’s important to ensure teeth have a short exposure to sugar. “Try to steer them away from suckers, toffee and caramel,” says Dr. Liu. “Chewy candy and lollipops keep sugar on the teeth for extended periods of time – and that’s when bacteria can develop, turn into acid and begin to dissolve the teeth.” It’s also helpful to limit sugary treats to between meals and not straight after eating.
