August 2014: news, eTips and More!

Warm weather, long days and so much to do!

There's always a palpable hurry in August to get as much done before the summer is over and it's time to go back to school.

The CNE at Exhibition Place is always a fun place to be on a summer's day. If you're like most people, a must-see attraction is the famed Food Building wherein you'll find all sorts of fantastical delights.

While it's fun to be gluttonous and enjoy yourself every once and a while, be sure to take care of your mouth and avoid eating anything too hot, too spicy, or too sugary. At the very least, chew sugar-free gum (preferably a gum like Trident Xtra Care Gum) after you eat. Chewing sugar-free gum helps protect your teeth and gums between meals as it helps the mouth to produce more saliva - the mouth's natural defense against acid. And don't forget: chewing sugar-free gum is no substitution for brushing, so make sure you still brush your teeth when you get home.

School is just around the corner...

If you are heading off to college or university, bring your good oral health habits along with you. Be sure to check your school's student health plan as it may include dental coverage. Remember to review the coverage offered to you and let us know if you have any questions. As for the younger kids, August is a great time to come in for a checkup before the hectic school year begins. Call or click here today to book an appointment.

Have a safe and healthy month,

Is Your Smile Missing Something?


Many people have a missing tooth in the back of their mouth. Since it's not visible to others, they often feel that this is not a problem but that is not entirely true. While you may not be able to see the missing tooth, you do run the risk of having the surrounding teeth drift out of position.

Missing teeth also cause teeth and gums to become more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease.

One of the solutions we offer to our patients with missing teeth is a dental bridge.
