Etobicoke Family Dentists
Our goal is to work with you and your family to maintain your lifelong dental health. We are your Etobicoke family dentists!
At Eatonville Dental, WE LOVE KIDS! The Etobicoke family dentists have three young children themselves and they sure know how much attention children need to feel comfortable in new surroundings. We believe that good dental habits that start at an early age lead to happier and healthier lives as children grow. At Eatonville Dental, children can be relaxed using Nitrous oxide gas or laughing gas, as it is commonly known. We go the extra mile to give your children positive reinforcement, plenty of TLC and the attention required to ensure their experience is full of fun and learning at the same time. We believe that earning trust right from the start is the best way to develop a positive relationship with a dentist. And, that is how we treat our little patients with every visit, setting the foundation for a long-term trusting relationship.
Bonded Tooth Colored Fillings
Gone are the days when tooth trauma and cavities could only be treated with unsightly metal fillings. Today, modern, tooth-colored fillings made of durable resin can be bonded to your teeth for a stronger, more natural-looking effect. Composite fillings are virtually undetectable and require only a single appointment to apply.
If you are missing teeth, having trouble speaking or chewing, or if you are noticing strain when biting, bridges may be the ideal procedure to help make your mouth healthy and beautiful again. Bridges literally “bridge” gaps between teeth by filling them with strong, natural-looking artificial teeth. This treatment is not for everyone and a consultation with your dentist is needed.
Crowns are a type of dental restoration which, when cemented into place, fully cover the portion of a tooth that lies at and above the gum line. Since dental crowns encase the entire visible aspect of a tooth, a dental crown becomes the tooth’s new outer surface. Crowns are used to rebuild broken or decayed teeth, to strengthen teeth and to enhance the cosmetic appearance of teeth. Crowns can be made out of porcelain/ceramic, gold alloy, or a combination of both.
Extractions and wisdom teeth removal
In only the most extreme and necessary cases, such as when the roots of a tooth are damaged beyond repair, the tooth may be extracted in preparation for a restorative dentistry procedure (dentures or implants).
Dental implant restoration is performed by attaching artificial teeth to implants anchored in the bone below the gum line. After the anchor has been surgically placed in the jawbone, the bone and gum grow around the implant, holding it firmly in place.
Porcelain Inlays / Onlays
Porcelain onlays aesthetic alternatives to composite fillings. They have a high degree of strength and are excellent for restoring weakened back teeth. Onlays protect and restore large portions of decayed, heavily restored teeth, or teeth under very heavy load (i.e. back teeth). Unlike crowns, they only cover a portion of the tooth and are therefore more conservative in the amount of tooth preparation required.
Root Canals Therapy
Inside each of our teeth is a core, known as a dental pulp, which provides the tooth with nutrients and nerves that extend down to the tooth’s root. The dental pulp is what gives our teeth the ability to sense changes, as well as tooth aches, if it becomes inflamed or infected. Root canal treatment is then indicated, but also when there is a chronic infection. Root canals are painless and entail cleaning out dead tissue from the tooth and filling the space with natural rubber material. At Eatonville Dental, we have invested in the latest and proven technology to ensure a fast and safe procedure for our patients.
Dental anxiety. Dentistry for patients afraid of dentistry.
Dental anxiety can be devastating. It has been estimated that up to 20% of North Americans have a dental phobia and upwards of 50% of us harbour some reservations about visiting the dentist. These feelings can lead to people avoiding their regular check-ups and hygiene visits, thereby compromising their oral health and sometimes even their overall health. At Eatonville Dental, we want to make it easy for you to get back on track with your dental care. As no two people are alike, finding a dentist that you feel comfortable with when you have dental anxiety is that much more important. Delivering comfortable dentistry in a safe manner is our goal and #1 priority. We want you to meet us before you make any commitments to becoming a patient of our practice with a free, no obligation visit. The more questions you have for us, the better. Let’s get to know each other!
Oral Conscious Sedation
To relieve the very real and often debilitating anxiety associated with dental phobia, we also offer oral conscious sedation, also known as sedation dentistry. Patients who feel stressed about dental work, as well as those who need multiple procedures performed in one visit can benefit from conscious sedation.
The procedure involves taking an oral sedative prior to your visit, then receiving nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to supplement the sedative’s effects. Your vital signs and comfort level are keenly monitored throughout your visit.
Commonly referred to as laughing gas, nitrous oxide is used for its anxiety-easing and calming effects. It is very safe and can be used for all ages. The gas (a nitrous oxide and oxygen mixture) is inhaled through a face mask. The amount of gas that you receive is monitored and controlled by the dentist to ensure your safety. You will begin to relax and will not recognize pain, so the dentist can perform your dental work while you stay comfortable. The effects of nitrous oxide decrease once the mask is removed. If nitrous oxide is the only anesthesia that you receive, you will be capable of driving yourself home following the visit and can continue your daily activities as normal.
Our Recognition – Happy Patients!
Once, a curious patient asked me, “What is the highest recognition a dentist can get?” My answer was, “a happy patient”. We would like to thank all of our happy patients who nominated us and voted for Eatonville Dental to be honored the “Best Dentist” gold title in Etobicoke. We truly appreciate it!
