Keep Warm This Fall!

It's hard to believe that fall is almost over and winter is coming. While there's a bit more time before the snow hits, you shouldn't forget to bundle up to avoid getting caught off guard by the sudden change in temperature. The last thing you want is to get sick during the last few weeks of fall fun!

Here are some tips to help you transition to the colder months:

Wear layers - an easy way to stay warm is to layer your clothing . You can easily put on or take off a sweater or a cardigan to adjust to temperature changes when you step out or inside.

Clear your radiators / Change your filters - Make sure there isn't furniture blocking your radiators or vents and preventing warm air from circulating around the house. Placing a piece of tin foil behind a radiator can also help with heat dissipating through the wall by reflecting heat back into the room. Adjust your vents for the cold weather because hot air rises while cold air falls.

Drink warm beverages - the cold gives us the excuse to indulge in delicious drinks like warm apple cider and hot chocolate - but not too much sugar! For those with sensitive teeth, give your beverage a minute to cool before taking your first sip. You'll thank us later!

Make use of your kitchen - what better way to escape the cold then trying new recipes or your fall favourites? It's a great time to whip up a hearty stew or chili! It's also fun to get your kids involved in the preparation process. See below for a delicious recipe for a cold day.


Use it or lose it!

Is it time for a cleaning or to have your dental work completed?

Is Your Brushing Technique All Wrong? Healthy One Pot Meals
 
"Brush your teeth... round and round" we all remember the song. It's amazing, though, how many people still use improper brushing techniques. Brushing your teeth properly with a good tooth brush is your best line of defense against cavity-causing plaque between dental visits.

Improper brushing can be just as, if not more, harmful than plaque itself. Brushing too hard or using an improper tooth brush can erode enamel on the sides and tops of your teeth as well as damage your gums. Don't be discouraged though, proper brushing technique is easy and rewarding.

It is recommended that you brush your teeth after every meal, and especially before your go to sleep, as bacteria will remain unchallenged for an extended period while you sleep.
