Brushing properly

When it comes to brushing teeth, new parents often discover that their old habits are actually the wrong habits. The good news is that bad habits can be corrected, especially when new parents are teaching their young kids about oral hygiene. Some tooth brushing rules are obvious, but others need reinforcement - and getting young kids on the right track is simply good parenting.

  • proper tooth brushing should last at least two minutes
  • brushing should be twice a day (morning and bedtime)
  • it’s most preferable to use a fluoride-based toothpaste
  • flossing should be at least once a day (usually bedtime)
  • sugary snacks should be restricted in number each day
  • oral examinations should be scheduled every 6 months

How to floss properly

The key with flossing is to instill regularity when children are small. In this way, flossing habits will grow with the child, and flossing will become routine. Although flossing for young children may not be as vital as for adults, the so-called training will be long lasting, and as young adults, flossing will simply be a regular part of oral hygiene. Following some basic guidelines is helpful.

  • for good grasp, floss should be from 18 - 24 inches in length
  • the floss ends should be wound around index/middle fingers
  • tightened floss should be held around the tooth in a “C” shape
  • floss should be pulled back/forth and up/down over the tooth

With proper brushing, good flossing, and less snacking, tooth decay can be significantly reduced. And that applies to children of all ages (not to mention the adults). In fact, very young children are just as vulnerable to tooth decay as older children. As for regular dental checkups, these are critical for the whole family, and with children as young as two or three. These visits allow for familiarity with the dentist, and a positive dental experience every time an appointment is set.

Holly D.

Our Family has gone to Dr. Pedvis for over 25 years in his previous location. You are all so lucky to have him and his team to look after you in Vaughan now. I am a very complicated dental patient due to healthcare issues… I knew I was always safe with Dr. Pedvis!  I will miss your great stories, and trying not to laugh, as you work on my dental issues. Most people do not get to laugh at "The Dentist". Your new office in Woodbridge looks awesome! 

Dorothy McMahon

I have been a patient of Dr. Pedvis for 13 yrs now. He is the greatest dentist I've ever had. He's extremely gentle, listens to your concerns and is compassionate. I once emailed the woodbridge dental office with a severe toothache when it was closed. Shortly after Dr. Pedvis contacted me with my concerns, he called in a prescription for me to get me out of pain. He then took me first thing in the morning and did a root canal. I highly recommend this dental office to anybody looking for a caring dentist. Also the staff is fantastic and they truly care about you as a person.

Kimberly Oppermann

I have seen many dentists prior to Dr. Pedvis, so I believe I have ample reference points to say that Dr. Pedvis is at the top of his field. He keeps up to date with developments in the field, invests in the latest equipment for his office and is able to handle a wide variety of procedures, from simple to complex. He also maintains an equally top level network of professionals to add to his service capabilities if needed.

Christopher Omiecinski

Melissa Lombardo

Me and my family have been going to Dr. Pedvis 's dental practice since 1995. He always performs excellent services, and is often available to handle emergencies. First class staff, as well. Their new location in Vaughan is stunning! Highly recommended.

Cameron A. M. Muir

Dr. Pedvis was so amazing! I can't say enough good things about him. Not only did he get me in quickly for a root canal (replying on a Sunday to my plea for help!). He was so great about addressing my pain and understanding my irrational fear. His follow up after the root canal was absolutely amazing! I was shocked at his follow through and care for his patients even after the procedure. I would recommend him to anyone in need of dental work.
