At Markham Eglinton Dental Centre, we’re all about family. Our dental practice serves many, many families in the Scarborough area, and we enjoy seeing our little patients grow up before our eyes.
Along with our comprehensive family dentistry program, we offer all general dentistry services – fillings, crowns, root canals, bridges – as well as Sleep Dentistry/Oral Sedation. If you’re missing a tooth – or missing multiple teeth – ask us about dental implants, which are a comfortable, long-term solution.

While filming Full House, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen had to wear partial dentures because their teeth were falling out and growing in at different rates -- and they were both playing the same character of Michelle Tanner.

It’s true that not flossing can lead to gum disease, but some patients are surprised to learn that not flossing can also cause cavities. Even the very best brushers will run into issues if they’re not flossing, so be sure to floss once a day — every day — just before bedtime. Your teeth and gums will thank you!

Drugstores and grocery stores sell quite a variety of toothbrushes, but we suggest you only choose one variety: “soft.” The hard-bristled brushes are actually designed for scrubbing dental appliances, like retainers and removable dentures, and they’re too rough for the fragile enamel on your teeth.
George Clooney will be walking down the aisle in September, and no doubt he'll flash that famous smile as he waits patiently at the alter.

After you’ve had a filling, you may have some soreness and sensitivity for a few days. Here are a few tips to help you avoid post-filling issues: • chew slowly, and bite down gently • avoid sticky foods - something sticky could pull that new filling right off! • skip very hot or very cold drinks, and sugary foods, as they can trigger pain and sensitivity • crunching on nuts, ice cubes, and or hard candy can crack a new filling, so avoid these treats for now Take a little extra care of yourself for a few days while your filling heals. If you experience pain or other issues after that, give us a call!
