August 2013 - Tips, eNews and More!

 
We hope you are enjoying the relaxed pace of the summer, and at the same time getting out and taking advantage of the activities that the season brings.

Have you been involved in a group sport this summer?
With the season winding down, now is the time to look for an indoor activity for the fall. If your choice of sport involves contact or strength and balance, talk to us about a custom fitted mouth guard. Mouth guards are effective in preventing injuries to your mouth and protecting your smile.It has been suggested that they may be protective against concussions as well. Another claim made is that they may boost athletic performance.

Are you or a family member headed off to school in September?
Many post secondary institutions offer health plans that include dental coverage. If you are enrolled in a post secondary program, remember to look into the coverage offered to you. Your new school schedule may keep you busy, remember to make your oral health a priority.

Enjoy the rest of your summer,

Neil Hahn D.D.S. and the High Park Dental Care Team




No Drills! Air Abrasion Technology

Afraid of Drills?

If the thought of drills and needles haunt you when you think of a dental visit, air abrasion may be just what the doctor ordered.

Air abrasion, also called micro-abrasion, uses a high powered air stream, blowing fine particles to remove decay in procedures where drilling used to be necessary. Air abrasion can be used instead of a drill when repairing small surface cavities and cracks or preparing teeth for bonding and other cosmetic procedures.

Is Your Family Getting Enough Greens?

 
Leafy green vegetables are one of nature's richest sources of vitamins, minerals and fiber.

So look beyond spinach and broccoli and get familiar with kale, collards, swiss chard, arugula, bok choy and other greens you can find at your grocery store, specialty stores and of course farmer's markets depending on the season.

Regardless of your diet, greens should be an essential component of your day. Depending on your taste, there are many ways to get more green veggies into your diet. Through different preparations and by the very nature of vegetables, greens offer very unique flavours and textures. From side dishes to mains - and even in smoothies and juices - there are endless ways to add more leafy green vegetables into your family's diet.
