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.

We hope you are enjoying the summer!

         


 
What is Periodontal Disease? Chocolate Coconut Pudding
 
We are told from an early age that daily brushing and flossing is important, but why? Having a daily regimen helps combat oral health issues like periodontal disease. Infrequent oral hygiene and improper brushing can exacerbate these issues, making it easy for gum infection to occur.
