Dear Valued Patient, Life has been anything but normal this spring and we sincerely hope you and your family are in good health. We are happy to inform you that we are now able to once again provide dental care for you. The Ministry of Health has lifted the restrictions placed back on March 15, 2020 on dental services. While many things have changed since then, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your health and safety.
Our office has always followed strict infection control standards and in order to keep us all protected during this pandemic and in the future, we have updated our protocols. When we see you at your next appointment, things will be a little different.

  • * We will ask some Covid 19 symptom screening questions before your appointment and you'll be asked those same questions again when you're in the office.
  • * In order to promote physical distancing and minimize the number of patients in our waiting room, you may be asked to wait outside the office or in your car and call us when you arrive. You will then be given instructions on when you can enter the office.
  • * We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the clinic and before you leave. You will also be asked to wear a mask while in the office.
  • * Our waiting room will no longer offer magazines or children's toys or coffee since those items are difficult to fully disinfect. Our clinical space has temporary walls up to contain aerosols.
  • * Appointments will be spaced out to allow for physical distancing between patients. That might mean less flexibility for scheduling your appointment, but it will also reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.
  • * You may be surprised that we're wearing more protective gear - such as n95 masks, face shields, gowns - than we normally do during your visit.
Rest assured, all these procedures are designed to create the safest environment for you, other patients and our team.

We look forward to seeing you again. If you have any questions, please let us know. To make an appointment, call our office at 519-915-6646 or email us at reception@maldendental.ca.
Thank you for patience and loyalty throughout this ordeal. We value your trust and look forward to welcoming you back!
Sincerely,
The Team at Malden Dental

Tooth Loss and Your Health:

Tooth Loss and Your Health:

Tooth loss, whatever the cause, can have such an adverse impact on our well-being, both physically and emotionally. These issues are very serious and can affect us throughout our lives, from having to treat dental infections to suffering from a lack of self-esteem. Dental implants present an incredible solution that combines excellent health benefits with genuinely stunning aesthetics.

Let's learn more about how tooth loss can influence our health:

  1. Tooth loss can start to affect how you speak and what you can eat. People who are missing teeth often begin to slur their words, making it more difficult to communicate. It can also weaken your bite and make it challenging to keep eating your favorite foods. Dental implants act much like natural tooth roots and support porcelain crowns that mimic natural teeth, and both act to restore functionality that may have been limited before.
  2. Increased risk of oral infection. A gap between your teeth can act as a "food trap," making it more difficult to reach food particles and other debris when brushing and flossing. People with missing teeth have an increased risk of infections, such as tooth decay and gum disease. This can lead to tissue loss and other dental health problems, raising the costs of treatment over the long-run by requiring more work to keep your well-being on the right path.
  3. Weakening of the jawbone. Your tooth roots help keep your jaw strong by transmitting the force and energy of your daily routine, including functionality, to hold the bone that holds your teeth in place. Similar to a muscle, the jaw's tissue is strained and then repaired, making it stronger and more durable.
  4. Premature wrinkling. As your jaw begins to lose shape, the skin around your jawline loosens and the cheeks sag. This can cause premature wrinkling, which hides the shape of your jaw and makes you appear older. By protecting the jaw, dental implants can prevent this issue.
  5. Reduced self-confidence. Tooth loss can cause a profound change in our social lives and how we feel when there are people around us. It can impact your love life, your friendships, and your career, and can ultimately change how you feel about yourself. We all deserve more confidence and a better life.
  6. Increased likelihood of pain. Missing teeth expose these openings to the elements. Our nerves travel from our teeth, through the sockets, to the rest of the body, and an empty gap can give reason to greater sensitivity in the affected area. Discomfort, irritation, and pain can result.
  7. Anxiety and unhappiness. Just by smiling authentically we feel happier. We associate smiling and laughter with positive energy. If we are afraid to smile due to tooth loss, it can be associated with a greater risk of anxiety and depression. By replacing missing teeth with dental implants, you can have a long-lasting, cost-effective, and unbelievably genuine smile.

Why Our Patients Choose Dental Implants:

  • Restored functionality: Eat your favorite foods and enjoy conversations with your friends, without having to stress about pain or discomfort.
  • Rejuvenation: Prevent premature wrinkling around the jawline and aesthetically enhance your smile, helping you appear younger and more confident. Put that spring back in your step!
