Gum disease is one of the main reasons for tooth loss in adults.

Gum disease is caused by a buildup of plaque (a sticky form of bacteria that forms on the teeth). If the plaque is not removed (by flossing, brushing, and regular dental checkups), it will continue to build up and create toxins that can damage the gums. Periodontal disease forms just below the gum line and creates small pockets that separate the gums from the teeth. Periodontal disease has two stages: gingivitis and periodontitis. Gum disease is one of the main reasons for tooth loss in adults. The good news is that it can be prevented. Call Smiles at Summerhill Dental in Newmarket and be sure to ask about our periodontal exams!

Newmarket Dentist: What is a dental bridge and why would a patient need one? 

Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth. They help maintain the shape of your mouth and literally bridge the gap where your teeth may have been. It’s important to maintain good oral health as the success of the bridge often depends on how good the foundation is! Our team out in Newmarket dentist is highly skilled at restorative dental procedures such as bridges. Our commitment is to provide patients with a seamless experience. Call us today if you have any questions about bridges. We look forward to seeing you at Smiles at Summerhill Dental in Newmarket!

Implants are a fantastic option that will help you maintain your natural smile for years to come. An implant is a synthetic tooth root that is surgically placed into the jawbone. Implants are versatile, you can ask for single or multiple implants - depending on your case. When you call our office in Newmarket, we can walk you through the process and what to expect when you come in. As a reminder, the ideal candidate for implants is a non-smoker who has good oral health! Call us today to learn more about implants and let’s work together to see if it’s the best option for you.

Did you know that a healthy mouth can help with better overall health?

Research shows there is evidence that oral health links to heart disease. For example, if you have gum disease, you’re at higher risk for heart disease than a person with healthy gums. The best way to know your oral health is by visiting your dentist for dental check-ups and dental cleanings. Our team is excited to share that we are currently welcoming new patients. Book a consultation today!

Dental Exams and Cleanings!

When it comes to your oral health, prevention is key. You want to ensure that you are brushing twice a day, flossing, and, most importantly, coming in for regular dental exams and cleanings! It is recommended that you come in to visit your dentist every four to six months to maintain a happy and healthy smile; keep in mind that in some cases, patients will have to visit the dentist more frequently. Coming to the dentist can help prevent tooth decay, gum disease and even keep your teeth white by reducing food and drink stains.

Is Bad "Mask Breath" A Thing?

 

Lately, Smiles at SummerHill Dental team in Newmarket, Ontario, has received messages from patients and the community regarding "bad breath" while wearing a face mask. 

 

 

 

So, what is bad mask breath, and how to get rid of it? 

 

Here's the thing, bad breath is not something caused by wearing a face mask. The sad news is that it was always there! 

 

Halitosis, the medical name for bad breath, is a thing mints and mouthwash can't solve. And it is different from the "morning breath," a strong smell that lingers after a tuna sandwich.

 

Halitosis is caused by certain foods, tobacco products, poor dental hygiene, health problems, dry mouth, oral infections, dental problems, or medications.

 

Our team of dental professionals in Newmarket, Ontario, put together our top 5 tips for managing and preventing "bad breath."

 

  1. Brush your teeth and use mouthwash twice a day. 
  2. Don't forget to brush or scrape your tongue.
  3. Visit your dentist for dental cleanings and check-ups.
  4. Make water your favourite drink. 
  5. Say goodbye to habits such as smoking and tobacco products.

If you have more questions or would like to book an appointment, contact us today. Smiles at SummerHill in Newmarket, Ontario, is looking forward to meeting you!
