Dr Anto YoussefHello everyone! My name is Anto and I’m a dentist living and practising in the Montreal region. Dentistry has been my profession for almost two decades now and it is not just my job, but also my passion. As a hobby, I love photography, as well as travelling to fascinating and remote destinations. I am a very curious person, whether it comes to health and science, or to landscape photography.

I have attended my dental studies at the Université de Montréal, graduating in 1999. Since then, I try to thrive and evolve in my profession by constantly educating myself. I have also been lucky to visit many interesting countries around the World, where the first one was New Zealand, and it remains my favourite. During each trip I make, I like to photograph what I find captivating and beautiful, whether it’s a city’s architecture, the culture of people, and mostly the unique and charming landscapes. In each destination you can discover spectacular scenes that take your breath away!

I created this blog to share advice on common dental subjects that may interest my readers. Although most of my articles are based on scientific research, I do include some my of own professional opinions, but I try to post non-biased information.

The clinics where I practice are:

3210 Boulevard de la Gare #160,
Vaudreuil-Dorion, QC J7V 9R2, Canada

1819, Dollard,
LaSalle, QC H8N 1T9, Canada

I publish some of my pictures on this website:

My heroes are my parents Annie and Camille.

  1. Hi TalkResearch,

    About your jaw, I would recommend to have it checked by a dentist or an orthodontist who specializes in TMJ as well (temporo-mandibular joint). They will check for cracking, or any other symptoms that your jaw might have. Maybe you just need a bite-splint to be worn while you sleep.

    I would love to help you online, but if you were seen by a professional, they will help you more.

  2. Hi Dr. Anto,

    Nice blog – thanks for all the great advice! =)

    I had a question for you. I have been debating whether I should visit the dentist and with no insurance its a hard decision. Anyways, my question is that after getting orthodontic treatment for a few years that is, braces, my lower jaw seems to be kind of… lose? i don’t know what would be the best way to describe it but when im sleeping or eating it kinda shifts to a side and it hurst to bring it back to the center. Is that common? Is that a deficiency of vitamins or what do you think it is?

    Thanks! 🙂

  3. Hi Athena,

    If you swallowed your tooth and it went into your stomach, there shouldn’t be any problems.

    But if your tooth was lose enough for you to swallow it, then you have serious gum disease and you MUST consult a dentist ASAP because the infection in your gums can make your lung infection even worse!

    You must also mention you swallowing your tooth next time you see your doctor.


  4. what happens when a lady aged 68 swollows her tooth
    when she was asleep during the night? Is it dangerous
    as, she has lung infection and a weak heart….
    what should be done???

    hope to hear from you asap.

    thank you.
