Dentinogenesis Imperfectais a condition that causes issues with the development of teeth. Teeth affected by this condition tend to have a blue-ish, grey or yellow discolouration and are slightly translucent. Dentinogenesis imperfect can make teeth more fragile and therefore more prone to chipping, fracturing and breaking. It can affect both primary (baby teeth) and permanent teeth (adult teeth).
Tooth stains can be broken down into two categories. The two categories are extrinsic staining, meaning on the outside surface of the teeth, and intrinsic staining, meaning inside the teeth. Extrinsic staining is removable staining and will come off at a regular dental cleaning. In contrast, intrinsic staining is permanent and can only be removed with whitening products that enter into the underlying tooth structure.
Dental fluorosis is damage to the teeth caused by the consumption of too much fluoride while the teeth are forming. Fluorosis most commonly affects the adult teeth because they form at the pivotal time when a child begins using a fluoridated toothpaste for the first eight years of life. Once the teeth are formed and erupt into the mouth, they are no longer susceptible to fluorosis.
Candida (or fungus) is a normal organism in the mouth, but oral candidiasis is a condition where the fungus accumulates in more significant amounts on the surfaces of the mouth. The layman’s term for oral candidiasis is oral thrush.
We are truly excited to have the opportunity to welcome you back! As we move closer to reopening, we are actively looking into various scenarios of increasing dental services for you. Of course, our social responsibility and concern for your safety are paramount in any decisions we make. We will not consider expanding our current level of service (which right now amounts to emergency and urgent care only), until we have the blessing of both the Chief Medical Officer (and the Minister of Health) as well as the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario.
