Family Dentistry

Family Dentistry
Family dentistry addresses oral health at every stage of life. For example, children have very different dental needs than adults, and seniors. At Eringate Dental, we have qualified Toronto family dentists that deliver comprehensive oral care from baby teeth to permanent teeth. Here are a few of the services offered by our family dentists:

Family Dentistry – Dental Cleanings

Regular dental cleanings performed by a professional dental hygienists, along with your at-home care routine, are fundamental to maintaining your oral health. Plaque and tooth decay are often not seen by the naked eye, yet are the primary causes of tooth loss in adults. Getting a dental cleaning every six months is recommended to keep plaque and tartar in check.

If you have not seen a family dentist for over a year, a new patient exam is recommended. This will give our dentists the opportunity to assess your current state of oral health and to recommend preventive and restorative dentistry that is necessary to keep your teeth healthy and beautiful. Very often, x-rays are required to be able to see below the gumline and inside the tooth for problems not visible to the naked eye. A new patient exam is recommended, once every 3 years, depending on your oral health.

Not only do our Toronto family dentists understand how children’s teeth change with age, but they also recognize that children may fear going to the dentist. Our family dentists have a gentle approach so that children will develop positive associations with regular dental checkups and build good oral hygiene habits for life.


Family Dentistry – Dental Fillings And Root Canals

Tooth Decay is an Infectious Disease

What is the difference between
having a cavity and needing a root canal?

First we need to understand the difference between a cavity and a root canal. Cavities are extremely common and caused by plaque buildup that eventually causes tooth decay. While cavities can range in severity, the tooth is not as damaged as it is when needing a root canal. Cavities can be fixed in one single visit by applying a filling made of either white composite resin or silver amalgam. Decay on the surface of the tooth, not in the root, can easily be fixed with a dental filling.

When a root canal is needed, there is severe decay and an infection deep in the tooth pulp that will become worse over time. Needing a root canal is a more involved procedure, and the difference for many begins with the amount of pain they experience. This is because needing a root canal means there is an infection deep in the canal of the tooth and the nerve is severely inflamed and infected. It is important to note that not all teeth that require a root canal cause pain, and this is why many are confused as to why their Toronto dentist suggests a root canal versus a dental filling.

Family Dentistry – Gum Disease Therapy

Family Dentistry - Gum Disease Therapy

Periodontal disease is one of the most common diseases of humans. Not only can gum disease cause oral pain, discomfort and tooth loss, it can also seriously affect a person’s overall health. The connection between oral infections and other diseases in the body is becoming understood and accepted within the health-care community. Periodontal disease is a contagious, chronic bacterial infection that affects the gum tissue, bone and attachment fibres that support the teeth and hold them in place.

Gum disease starts slowly without any pain and may not be apparent until there are serious side effects, like bleeding gums. If left untreated, gum disease can result in abscesses or the complete destruction of the tooth supporting tissues and, ultimately, tooth loss.

Signs and Symptoms of Gum Disease:

Red, swollen or tender gums

Gums that bleed when brushing or flossing

Receding gums

Deep pockets (the space between the gums and the teeth)

Metallic taste

Tooth sensitivity for no apparent reason

Loose or shifting teeth


Pus around the gums and teeth

Chronic bad breath

With regular and proper oral care, gum disease can be prevented, controlled or even reversed in the early stages by one of our Toronto family dentists. Book your appointment today!


Family Dentistry – Mouth Guards

Do you or your child grind or clench your teeth?

Many people are unaware that they grind their teeth because they do it while they sleep. Bruxism often occurs in the early part of the night and can disturb sleep partners. The clenching and grinding may be quite audible. Others make no sound while bruxing their teeth and do not realize they are doing it until the dentist discovers unusual wear spots on their teeth. People who grind or clench their teeth may wake with a headache, earache or toothache. Regular dental checkups are important to detect damage in the early stages.
Family Dentistry - Sports Guard
Family Dentistry - Mouth Guard
Our Toronto family dentists may suggest a custom-made nightguard that fits over your teeth in one jaw and prevents contact with the opposing teeth. The nightguard relieves some of the pressure of grinding and clenching. Contact our family dentistry practice for more information.
