then the mouth is the window

Welcome to Our Online Dental Practice!
If the eyes are the window to the soul, then the mouth is the window to the body.
This simple yet powerful concept is one of the guiding principles at North York Dental. Exciting new research is leading us to believe that the mouth may be a reflection of our overall health and that our overall health may be reflected in the mouth. Caring for our bodies and our minds is critical; we hear about it everyday. But the importance of oral health is often forgotten even though it is an essential element to overall health and wellness. A happy healthy smile is just as important as a well-balanced diet and a daily dose of fresh air and exercise. Our mouths are part of our bodies and neglecting them can lead to all sorts of problems. This leap in thinking can change your perspective on the mouth. …And on the balance between the mouth and body.
Excellent dental health
The mouth is a portal for food and drink and for many other influences; some good and some bad. We all know how important an inviting smile is, but this is only part of the bigger picture. Our mouth gives us signs and symptoms that can be related to our overall health. We can help you understand the broader health benefits of good oral health.
An attractive smile
Dentistry has changed in the last 100 years. Advancements in technology and in the use of porcelain and titanium, means that cosmetic smile enhancement is now fairly common and attainable by most people. At North York Dental, we let our patients tell us what changes, if any, they want to make to their smile. Some patients simply want to whiten their smile with ZOOM! whitening. Others want a more complete makeover. Using digital imaging, smile analysis and video presentations we can show you how we make veneers, implants, inlays, crowns, etc. You could have your new smile, in some cases, within a week.
A positive dental experience
North York Dental is designed to deliver comfortable, relaxed dentistry. In our dental chair, you can look out the windows and see rolling ravines and a collection of bird feeders, watch a DVD on our flat-screen TVs, or simply relax with optional sedation. The pace is unrushed and catered to individual needs.
