November 2014 - Tips, eNews and More

 
It's November! How did that happen? Every year seems to fly by and as soon as November begins, we start hearing holiday music on the radio. The days get shorter and even though we're still (hopefully) at least a month away from snow, people begin to prepare for winter hibernation.

You should enjoy the month as best you can, and there are still plenty of good weather days to enjoy before the chill really starts. Here are just a few activities going on around town to keep you busy:
  • Winter Woofstock
    Visit the Direct Energy Centre for an indoor installment of Woofstock, Toronto's celebration of all things dog.

  • The Santa Claus Parade
    Santa Claus returns to the streets of Toronto, bringing a bit of early Christmas cheer with him.

  • The Gourmet Food and Wine Expo
    Visit the Metro Toronto Convention Centre to taste, buy and learn about wine, cheese and other gourmet foods.

  • Harbourfront Centre's Day of the Dead Festival
    The Day of the Dead Festival celebrates the traditional Mexican acts of witnessing tradition, history, memory and the spiritual with music and dance, community ofrendas, films and above all the spirit of the Mexican peoples.
Is it time for a cleaning or to have your dental work completed? Many dental plans are based on the calendar year, so your benefits as a rule will not roll over into the new year. If you need to, it's a good idea to find time for a cleaning or check up to ensure you get the most out of your plan. Call us today, or click here to request an appointment and we will find a time that fits your schedule.


Have a safe and healthy month,

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




Why Have Your Teeth Cleaned?

 
Proper oral hygiene is important not only for your appearance, but also for your overall health. Improper oral hygiene may lead to infection, gum disease with possible bone and tooth loss. Gum disease has been associated with cardiovascular disease, and other serious ailments.

Why is cleaning part of good oral hygiene?
  1. Good Oral Health: During dental cleanings, the hygienist and dentist can let you know if you're maintaining good oral health, and make appropriate suggestions if you're not.

  2. Early Detection of Dental Problems: Dental problems can be detected during dental cleanings, allowing for proper and timely treatment. Minor problems such as cavities or early gum disease can be treated and do not have to become major problems.

  3. Keeping Your Teeth: Regular dental cleanings, along with check ups and good home care are important to enable you to keep your own teeth for as long as possible, and to help you to maintain your normal chewing function and overall good health.

Apple Berry Crisp

 

We've all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Yet many of us skip this meal or try to replace it with a prepackaged breakfast or power bar. While these bars offer a high level of convenience they also offer a high level of sugar and calories.

This month's recipe is full of fiber, vitamins, antioxidants and is low in sugar. It can be enjoyed for breakfast, dessert or a midday snack. It will also stay for a few days if covered and refrigerated allowing you to make it on the weekend and enjoy it for the first few days of the work week.
