Absolutely wonderful dental office. If you’re someone like me who is anxious when it comes to visiting the dentist then I highly recommend Dr. Emily Baker. She explained everything in detail and made my visit extremely comfortable (especially during these Covid times). She was great at making sure I felt comfortable during the whole process. I’m glad I found this dental office because I will be going here from now on.

My @dtdentistry hygienist wore a N100 mask, a medical mask, a face shield, eye goggles, and a surgical scrub cap, gown and gloves for my recent dental cleaning. Thank you for giving me super-clean teeth and for keeping me safe from getting #Covid19.

I'm doing the Invisalign with Downtown Dentistry since January 2020. Dr. Chan and her team all are very professional and very kind. Only half year my teeth got a big change from the crowded bottom teeth and protruding upper teeth. I'm so happy about this experience, especially in the pandemic period they continue contacted with us. I would say that thank you Dr. Chan! Thanks each of you in the team for your excellent service ! All the best, Claire

Great experience. Highly professional staff. Dr chan recommended invisalign to straighten my teeth while correcting my bite and thus far, I have achieved perfect results. A few more tweaks, and I will complete this phase of my dental care. With regular hygiene appointments, I will have excellent dental health for the remainder of my life. Thank you so much.

Recently went to get a cleaning done (early June 2020) and I am so glad I went. The staff was absolutely amazing! (As always). Even during the COVID period they were well prepared with proper PPE and made sure all answered questionnaire (and sanitized etc). My hygienist was very patient and did a great job. I highly recommend Downtown Dentistry!

My experience with Downtown Dentistry has been wonderful, especially with Dr. Reddy and his staff. I have always been greeted with respect, dignity and a deep desire to provide the best possible care. I underwent several dental procedures like cleaning, fillings, gum disease treatment and tooth extraction. Dr. Reddy was very encouraging and informative throughout different procedures. He also encouraged me to get a cavity filled without any anesthesia. I would like to pass on the message to anyone reading this, when possible please consider getting cavity filled without needles and numbing. There is no other dentist I would go to or recommend! When you find the best, you keep it!

Overall, an exceptional experience with my Hygienist. Yolanda made me feel warm and welcomed as she had remembered me from past visits. She was also able to relieve my anxiety over the cleaning by creating a meaningful conversation that took my mind off of what was happening. Would definitely recommend for anyone who is looking for a welcoming dentistry office!

Dr. Michelle Fung is the best dentist I've ever had and by far the most attentive. She's kind, encouraging, and I truly felt like my comfort was her priority. I'm a huge wimp when it comes to any kind of dental procedures so I really appreciated her approach. I learn something new about how to take better care of my teeth every time I see her, and she takes her time to answer all of my questions. Her personality actually makes me look forward to visiting the dentist, which I never thought was possible :P

I've been going to Downtown Dentistry for almost 17 years. Dr. Chan, who is my dentist, is to be commended on the highly competent staff employed there. The dental professionals and support staff are first rate. I've never had cause for complaint in all my visits. Currently I am in the process of completing the 'Invisalign' process to straighten my teeth. I have recommended Downtown Dentistry to others owing to their excellent and caring service.

I went for cleaning and check up. Eni was my hygienist who did an amazing job of cleaning my teeth. She took her time and carefully removed any plaque that was left due to braces. Throughout the cleaning she shared very useful advice and hygiene tips on protecting my teeth with braces. I left feeling very happy.

Had been to this clinic after moving to the city. I was skeptical initially, but this clinic is really on par with their reviews and standards. Met Dr. Reddy N.C. and I am very happy with his work. He was so good in diagnosing the issue and explain it in laymen terms. Looking forward for the treatment.

Dr. Fung is changing and raising the standard for all dentists out there. Absolutely goes out of her way to make sure that you’re the most comfortable and remembers all of your preferences and sensitivities. Keeps you informed about what procedure she’s doing and why and if you’re curious or have any question, she’s a book of knowledge. And what’s so rare to find- she’s just a great and fun person and shows it during each visit. She makes greatest atmosphere between her, the patient and whoever is assisting her. Could not be happier to be her patient. Clinic is super clean and friendly too!

I went in because I was trying to find a dentist to transfer my Invisalign case to, since I recently moved. Dr Amelia came off as competent and knowledgeable and she seemed to getting care that I was happy with the end results of my treatment. I'll definitely be considering continuing my treatment with her.

Dr. Chan is by far the best dentist I’ve ever had. She is so friendly and kind that my 3 and 6 year-old-kids finally enjoyed going to a dentist. The front desk staff and hygienists are incredibly nice and they make it very clear customer satisfaction is the number one priority for them.

The space was clean & the staff was nice. It’s a big office so they can do anything you need on the premises. I will keep going there from now on!

When your dentist recommends tooth removal, he intends to save the neighbouring teeth from being compromised. Any type of dental work such as tooth extraction makes your body vulnerable to infection. Tooth extraction infection mostly occurs when bacteria enter the body and begin to multiply in the mouth. Infections, if left undetected or untreated, may lead to swelling and pain. 

Signs of infection

The last teeth to grow in for any adult are the third molars or commonly known as wisdom teeth. Around ages 17 and 25, they start to come out and signifies the patient is no longer a teen. These bites erupt at the far back area of the mouth and could get in a bit of a tight position. 

Usually, it becomes trapped in between an existing tooth and the gums. Because of the difficulty of its spot, it’s easy to miss cleaning the area as brush or floss won’t be able to reach it. This results in bacteria buildup and decay. 

Soon, the decay will cause irreversible problems as it’s left undetected or untreated. This is the main reason why a dentist would opt for wisdom tooth extraction. After the teeth surgery, it’s normal to experience discomfort as the anesthesia and pain reliever wears off. 

However, it could also be a sign of a developing infection.

If you experience these symptoms after wisdom teeth removal, be quick to seek your emergency dentist: 

  • Non-stop bleeding 24 hours after the surgery
  • Persisting pain that doesn’t go away with pain medication
  • Discharge or oozing pus
  • The swell in the face, gums, or jaws is getting worse
  • Having difficulty moving or opening mouth
  • Fever 

Follow these tooth extraction aftercare tips in order to prevent any type of infection. 

Tips to avoid tooth extraction infection

Brush gently

As instructed by your dentist, refrain from brushing your teeth within 24 hours following dental extraction. After 24 hours have elapsed, you need to gently brush your teeth after meals. Yet you need to avoid brushing the extraction site in the next three days. Also, you need to avoid rinsing and spitting hard while brushing. These prevent dislodging the blood clot formed in the socket. Once the blood clot is disrupted, the treated area is prone to harmful bacteria, which may lead to tooth extraction infection. 

Keep your mouth clean 

It is strongly recommended that you swish with salt water rinse at least six times within the day.  Salt slows the bacterial growth in your mouth as it increases the pH balance, creating a hostile environment for bacteria. Follow this tooth extraction aftercare for a week to keep your mouth clean while you’re recuperating from the dental procedure.  

Look out for signs of infection

After the tooth extraction procedure, you have to be watchful if there are any signs of infection developing in your mouth. The common signs of tooth extraction infection are discomfort and swelling near the surgical site. Remember to follow your dentist’s prescription of painkillers to help you manage any sort of discomfort. If you notice some tenderness, apply a cold compress to the swollen area. In any event that these steps do not alleviate the tenderness and discomfort, contact your dentist immediately. 

Watch your food intake

While your body is still recovering from the surgical procedure, you need to be careful about what you eat. Go on a soft diet within the week to help you recover fast. Have more pudding, cereal, yogurt, and pancakes so you can go easy on chewing. On one hand, momentarily ditch on drinking hot beverages since this would disrupt the blood clot. Also, avoid munching on crunchy or hard foods that may irritate the extraction site. 

Follow prescribed medication

Your dentist or oral surgeon will be prescribing medication to manage the presence of bacteria in your mouth. These antibiotics will help you prevent an infection after tooth extraction. Aside from medication, make sure you manage the bleeding or swelling by applying simple home remedies and avoid any problems.

These tooth extraction aftercare tips would certainly help you recover fast from the surgical procedure. Once you have fully recovered, talk to your dentist about your best option for tooth replacement. Part of the dental services in Toronto is providing restorative options such as dental crowns, bridges, dentures, or implants.
