*** IMPORTANT PUBLIC NOTICE ***   TEMPORARILY CLOSED DUE TO COVID-19 PANDEMIC

Back to work

To our valued patients:

 

Life has been anything but normal this spring and we sincerely hope you and your family are in good health. We are happy to inform you that we are now able to once again provide dental care for you and your family starting in August. The Ministry of Health has lifted the restrictions placed back in March. While many things have changed since then, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your health and safety. 

 

Our office has always followed strict infection control standards and in order to keep us all protected during this pandemic and in the future, we have updated our protocols. When we see you at your next appointment, things will be a little different. 

 

•        We will ask some screening questions before your appointment and you’ll be asked those same questions again                   when you’re in the office. 

 

•        You may be asked to wait outside our office or in your car and call us when you arrive and then wait for a call back to           let you know when you can enter the office. 

 

•        We have hand sanitizer that we will ask you to use when you enter the clinic. There are more dispensers around the           office for you to use as needed.

 

•        Our waiting room will no longer offer magazines or children’s toys since those items are difficult to fully disinfect. 

 

•        Appointments will be spaced out to allow for physical distancing between patients. That might mean less flexibility               for scheduling your appointment, but it will also reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one                   time. 

 

•        You may be surprised that we’re wearing more protective gear – such as masks, face shields, gowns – than we                       normally do during your visit. 

 

Rest assured, all these procedures are designed to create the safest environment for you, other patients and our team.

 

We look forward to seeing you again. If you have any questions, please let us know. To make an appointment, call our office at 705-855-3200 or email us at drwitzu@gmail.com  

 

Thank you for patience and loyalty throughout this ordeal. We value your trust and look forward to welcoming you back! 

 

Sincerely, 

 

Dr. Witzu and staff

Replace One, Several or All Your Teeth with Implant-Supported Dentures

One of the best ways to replace missing teeth is through the use of dental implants. Implants provide a very stable base, allowing a number of options to create a highly realistic smile.


Dental implants are artificial roots and teeth (usually titanium) that are surgically placed into the jawbone. The teeth attached to implants are very natural looking and often enhance or restore a patient’s smile!


Our office realizes the value that dental implants present for patients. As such, we are proud to provide you with any number of dental implant solutions.


Reasons for dental implants:


  • Most Natural Feel
  • Replace One, or Many Missing Teeth
  • Alternative to Ill-Fitting Dentures
  • Restore Chewing
  • Restore Confidence
  • 90% Chewing Capacity (Compared to 20% with Dentures)
  • Prevent Embarrassing Dental Conditions
  • Enhanced Speech
  • No Cavities or Temperature Sensitivity
  • No Need to Compromise Adjacent Teeth


What does Getting Dental Implants Involve?

The process of getting implants requires a number of visits over several months. X-rays are taken of the jaw and teeth to determine bone, gum tissue, and spacing available for an implant. While the area is numb, the implant will be surgically placed into the bone and allowed to heal and integrate itself onto the bone for around 4 months. Depending on the type of implant, a second surgery may be required in order to place the “post” that will hold the artificial tooth in place. With other implants the post and anchor are already attached and placed at the same time.


Once the titanium implant is "fused" with the jawbone, the artificial teeth are made and fitted to the post portion of the anchor. The artificial teeth are securely attached to the implant, providing excellent stability and comfort to the patient.


You will receive care instructions when your treatment is completed. Good oral hygiene, eating habits, and regular dental visits will aid in the life of your new implant.
