September 2016 - Tips, eNews and More

 
Fall is just around the corner, and for many families that means a return to school and work. During this change of routine, don't forget to take a few moments in your busy day to relax and focus on your health. Studies have shown that stress and oral health are closely related, but remember that small lifestyle changes are easy to implement into your day. A healthy breakfast boosts performance by improving your concentration and overall health. Take some time to brush and floss before setting out on your day, and the results will assist you in maintaining a happy and healthy smile.

You still have time to take advantage of the outdoors with many events coming up. If you're in or around Toronto, check out Toronto International Buskerfest, Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), Small World Music Festival, all the way to the end of the month with Oktoberfest on September 30th and October 1st, along with Nuit Blanche!


Time for Your Cleaning

Is it time for a cleaning or to have unfinished dental work completed?

If your dental benefits are based on the calendar year, your maximums may not roll over into the New Year. Our calendar can fill up quickly this time of year, so we encourage you to call or click today for the most convenient appointment dates & times to schedule an appointment before the New Year.

Have a safe and healthy month,



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




Do You Need a Dental Bridge?
 
Is your smile all that it can be?
Is there something missing?


Many people have a missing tooth in the back of their mouth and feel as though, if no one can see it, it's not a problem. In most cases this is not true.

While you may not see that missing tooth as causing problems, usually the surrounding teeth drift out of position and this may cause harm because your surrounding teeth and gums become more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease. Sometimes the loss of a tooth results in a loss of function or a transference of function to remaining teeth that cannot easily perform the additional "duties".

One of the solutions we can offer patients with missing teeth is called a dental bridge.

What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is a false tooth, known as a pontic. It can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges can do many things, including restore function, help to correct minor bite issues and improve aesthetics.
