September 2014 - Tips, eNews and More

 
Do You Have a Hollywood North Smile?

The stars are coming to town!

The Toronto International Film Festival runs from September 4th to the 14th and features films from the likes of Robert Downey Jr., Kevin Costner, Reese Witherspoon, Denzel Washington and Tina Fey. Will you be checking out the latest hit movie? If cinema is not your thing, then how about flashing your pearly whites while laughing at the Just for Laughs 42 Festival.

Are You in Back to School Mode?

With kids heading back to school, September often feels like summer is over, for everyone. But there are many more months of nice, warm weather, so be sure to do all the things you would like to do before the temperature drops!

Remember to take a moment every day to relax and breathe; while the immediate effect may not be obvious, stress and oral health are related. Stress contributes to grinding and clenching teeth, canker sores and even gum disease. We suggest starting your day off with a nutritious breakfast and thinking positively about the day ahead while you brush your teeth and floss. Not only will this give you a few minutes to yourself, it will help to ward off some of the effects of stress on your oral health.

Have a safe and healthy month,

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




Tooth Decay in Preschoolers

 

Every year, about 19,000 Canadian preschoolers require day surgery to treat cavities and tooth decay.

Tooth decay, also known as dental caries, is a disease caused by specific germs in the mouth. Babies usually receive the bacteria from a caregiver, sometimes from a shared eating utensil or even a kiss. These bacteria can cause the enamel of the baby's teeth to break down, leading to cavities and opening the door for other oral diseases.

Tooth decay in children can adversely affect eating and speech. The proper eruption of adult teeth can be disrupted. It is difficult for children to deal with the discomfort that can be associated with tooth decay and there can be negative aesthetic effects as well. If left unattended infections can result.
