How Cavities Form – And What You can do to Stop Them

Posted on by Dr. Axelrad

It is common knowledge that if you don’t brush your teeth, you will get cavities. However, most people don’t actually know why this happens. Since the average patient is often a bit surprised to learn what is happening in his or her mouth, the team at Southcommon Dental in Mississauga have put together an infographic that teaches you a bit more about how cavities develop and what you can do to halt them in their tracks. Check it out!

We're getting very excited about returning to work and seeing patients again!  The green light has yet to come from the government, but we are ready now.  Being ready means being safe.  The following safety measures have been put in place to protect patients and staff.

Safety Measures:

  • A plexiglass barrier stands on the front desk in the waiting room.
  • All patients will have their temperature taken with a non-touch digital infra-red thermometer.
  • All staff will wear a mask, gloves, gown, bonnet, goggles and face shield.
  • Hand sanitizers will be readily available for staff and patient use.
  • Patients will wait outside or in their car until their appointment time.
  • No visitors are permitted in the office.
  • Social distancing will remain in effect in the office.
  • Patients experiencing influenza-like-illness (fever with a cough, sore throat or muscle aches) should not come to the office.

We really look forward to seeing everyone again!

Until then, please stay safe and healthy.
