Our Waterloo dentists know how easy it is to forget what we are thankful for as we reflect on this Thanksgiving. At Waterloo Dental Centre, we are thankful for your business and your trust as we work with you to make your smiles the best they can possibly be. Our entire team understands that you have a lot of options when it comes to you and your family’s dental needs, and we value our relationship with you as we work together.

While you enjoy your holiday this year, remember to be mindful of common problems that may indicate a dental issue, such as gum disease. Gum disease is not just something that affects “other people.” Gum disease is treatable, curable and preventable, and we are on the front lines battling it for you. In addition to regular cleanings and tooth whitening, we also perform deep cleanings. These involve scaling and root planning in order to remove bacteria, tartar, and food debris that has collected under the gum line and can instigate gum disease.

We provide X-rays to ensure we are getting the full picture of your dental health, and also provide important oral cancer evaluations. Did you know we can provide nutritional information as well? Our goal is your dental health, and nutrition can be an important factor when it comes to your teeth.

Sometimes your smile needs a little repair from time to time. In addition to filling cavities, we also provide tooth veneers, crowns, inlays and onlays (which are more effective when a filling might not be enough), and tooth bonding to reshape and improve teeth when warranted. If you might have missing or cracked teeth, we can fix those too, with dental bridges or implants. Whether it’s the smile you’re showing the world, or the less visible health of your teeth and gums, we are here for you. Our dentists are here to do more than just scold you for not flossing enough!

We all have many things to be thankful for on this holiday, and among them is that you or your family members are maintaining strong dental health!

P.S. – After you finish your turkey, please remember to brush and floss!
