May 2014 - Tips, eNews and More

 
Spring has taken hold and the great Canadian Summer is upon us. With the days getting longer, most of us are spending more time in the sun. Aside from the obvious safety tips like putting on sunscreen and drinking plenty of water, there are a lot of precautions you can take to make sure you're safe in the great outdoors:
  • Wear a helmet when you cycle
  • Make sure you wear supportive footwear when going on long walks and hikes
  • Use a good mouth guard for playing sports such as soccer and football to protect your teeth.
  • Contact our office and we can provide you with a high quality, properly fitted mouth guard.
We hope you made your Mom smile on Mother's Day. Enjoy the Victoria Day long weekend and holiday Monday on May 19th.

Enjoy the warm weather and take care of your smile!

Until next time, keep smiling,

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




Have You Had an Oral Cancer Screening?


 
While hearing the term 'cancer' can be scary, early detection of pre-cancerous tissue can minimize or eliminate the potentially disfiguring effects of oral cancer and possibly save your life. In general oral cancer treatment has a high success when found early.

The term 'Oral Cancer' includes cancerous growths in the cheeks, lips, mouth, throat, sinus, tongue, or anywhere in the oral cavity. As with most cancers, age is an important risk factor for oral cancer, as most people diagnosed with a form of oral cancer are over 55. Other common risk factors for oral cancer are tobacco use, alcohol consumption and HPV infections.
