Canadians are afraid of the dentist

Study: 32% Canadians admit to not having visited a Dentist in 2 years

Hi. as per a latest report compiled after a survey conducted by us at the Sapphire Dental Centre, we have come across some interesting stats and figures that explain the current scenario of patients with regards to their input on their dental health. You may find some of these facts extremely interesting!!

  • A staggering 52% of the population is scared of a Dental procedure!

Woah! Remember that the next time you go for a Dental Treatment. Surprisingly, this result is based on an audience set of incoming patients to Our Clinic in Milton. The majority of the patients surveyed for this statistic fall in the age group of 20-50 years.

  • 70% of people aged 40 or below have had a tooth Extraction:

This clearly tells us the fact that people are not taking care of their teeth as well as they could. The presence of cavities and plague in the mouth leads to the tarnish and destruction of teeth. (staring with an individual tooth to progress on to the neighbors and so on)

Tooth Extractions are not what we ideally like to get done which is sad considering the following fact.

People who assort to proper Dental precautions and care can avoid getting a Tooth Extraction until the age of 60.

  • 76% of Canadians have never got a Dental insurance

It is very understandable if the general population is not interested in getting an insurance. But are they sure about their general habits which have to be healthy and conscious enough? In other cases(almost 91%), our habits are not as ideal! Consider the next important fact:

Almost 74% of the visits to the Dentist’s Clinic are unplanned.


  • 32% of Canadian citizens haven’t visited a Clinic in over 2 years

When we do not get regular checkups done, we fall into thee category of those people who are very likely to fall in the bracket of those 74% who have an unplanned visit to their nearest dentist. If would have been perfectly fine if our eating and cleaning habits could have been ideal, but that is not the case very often observed!

Almost Two third of the people who do not get a Dental Checkup done in two years have had an unplanned visit to the Dentist for one of these services.

  • Nearly 43% of people surveyed were unhappy with their Teeth

Among other things, most people complained about having unaligned, crooked or discolored teeth. Alignment and pigmentation in average adults appears to be a very common issue, yet very few have taken steps to cater to this.

Invisalign Braces happen to be one decent solution to align the teeth. These braces are quite invisible when overlooked. For colored teeth, one can refer to some strong Toothpastes which would definitely bring back the white teeth in some weeks. Other treatments like the Teeth Whitening Treatment can also be tried for immediate results.
