July 2015 - Tips, eNews and More

 
I hope you had a great Canada Day!

Summer is in full swing and if you have kids at home, they are more than likely getting up later in the morning. It's easy to just give them a sugary bowl of cereal and get on with the day, but that is not doing them any favours when it comes to oral and overall health. Try to provide a healthy start to the day without the excessive sugars contained in so many breakfast meals.
  1. Be careful about sugary soft drinks. Hot summer months and enticing cola commercials can cause kids to beg you for soda. Try to resist and encourage drinking something better like ice water with a lemon slice or even an orange slice to sweeten the deal. Soda can be a nightmare for your child's dental health.

Now is the time to get you and your child to the dentist for a regular check-up. It's always good to take advantage of this time when your child won't have to miss school to get that necessary dental check-up. Click here to request an appointment.

Summer fun means lots of smiles – keep your child's smile healthy.

Wishing you countless reasons to smile,

What You Don't Know About E-Cigarettes

 
E-cigarettes are on the rise. It has been estimated that within 10 years e-cigarettes will outsell tobacco products since they are considered by many a safer and less expensive alternative to smoking. Smoking has been linked to cancer and heart disease but that doesn't mean e- cigarettes are not hazardous for your health. There has also been concern that e-cigarettes are quickly becoming a gateway drug for nonsmokers and teens.

What Are E-Cigarettes?

The battery powered electronic device contains a cartridge with e-juice (made up of vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol, flavouring and liquid nicotine) and a heating element to produce vapor. Since vapor is produced rather than smoke, the amount of toxic chemicals emitted are reduced. This battery powered device also reduces the odor that normally accompanies smoking.
