March 2014 - Tips, eNews and More

 
Do you deserve a break?

It has been an especially cold winter and while the days are getting a little longer and warmer every day, the cold can take its toll on everybody. As spring approaches, take time to relax. If you have children in school, you know it is March break this month. We hope you have the opportunity to take a few days off and enjoy some fun spring activities!

It is also a good time to get ahead of your dental care before summer really starts. What better time than now to make an appointment for the whole family?

March is a great time to start getting fit for the summer, so it is appropriate that March is National Nutrition Month and this year, the theme is 'Simply Cook and Enjoy!' Proper nutrition is integral to overall health and vitality. The foods you choose to eat also impact your oral health from the moment you put them in your mouth.

Click here to learn more about Nutrition Month. As always, we encourage you to learn more about your health, and remember that the kitchen is a great place to experiment with new ingredients. Let us know what you think of this month's healthy recipe.

Have a fun and safe month,


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

Is It Time to Quit?


We all know how bad smoking is for your overall health, but what about your oral health? Smoking has extremely detrimental effects on your mouth and teeth.


 

Some of the oral complications that can result from tobacco use include:
  • Increased risk of oral cancer
  • Increased the risk of gum disease
  • Gum tissue damage causing receding gums, exposed roots, increased sensitivity and decay

Guilt Free Comfort Food

 
A big bowl of pasta makes great comfort food. Who can resist rich pasta topped with a thick and creamy sauce? And despite how delicious this recipe is, there's no reason to be afraid of carbs and calories. This Brown Rice Pesto Pasta is complete comfort without the guilt!

Pesto is a fun, easy sauce to make. It is full of chlorophyll and protein. The miso and pinenuts give it a "cheesy" flavour. Pesto tastes great on anything from brown rice pasta and quinoa, to homemade pizza crust, on wraps or simply as a dip for veggies. If beans are added to this recipe it will give your pasta a hearty boost of protein and fiber and make each bowl of pasta more filling!
