FAQ- How can I help myself from Bad Breath?

The most common cause of bad breath is bacteria on the tongue and the mouth. The bacteria produce rotten egg smell from sulfur compounds. The bacteria numbers go up and down throughout the day depending on what you eat and how long ago you brushed or performed any form of oral hygiene. Other reasons for bad breath are smoking, alcohol, reduced salivary flow etc.

Your Dentist and Dental Hygienist can help you with taking care of this embarrassing problem. The treatment usually begins with oral hygiene instruction and followed by thorough oral hygiene appointment to reduce bacteria in the mouth. Gum disease can also cause bad breath in the mouth.

At home to reduce halitosis,

1)      Drink more water

2)      Perform thorough oral hygiene twice everyday especially before going to bed.

3)      Tongue scraping with a tongue scraper should be also included in your daily hygiene regimen. You can buy tongue scrapers from any shoppers drug mart in Etobicoke.

FAQ: How can I get my dental records transferred to Mystic Pointe Dental?

Original dental records do not belong to the patient, but they belong to the dentist who provided the treatment. The dentist has to keep all records for a period of time specified by the College of Dentistry.

To get a copy of the records transferred to our office, you have to sign x-ray and records release form at our dental office. With the release form, we can get your records transferred from your previous dental office. It is beneficial if you could come to the office and sign the release form prior to your first appointment so that our Dentist has clear understanding of your dental history.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at Mystic Pointe Dental Etobicoke.
