August 2012 - eNews, Tips, and More!

Apparently records really were made to be broken. With temperatures soaring and rain fall being minimal this has been another summer for the books. Hopefully the record breaking spirit continues to rub off on our Canadian athletes in London. If the weather and event scheduling work out, try to grab lunch on a local patio with an outdoor TV and cheer on our athletes!

Warm weather and watching athletes at their peak are great motivators to stay active. While you may not be headed to Rio for the 2016 games, perhaps you may take interest in one of the many sports featured in the Olympics. Training for a sport is a great way to maintain fitness as well as mental focus. If a sport catches your eye, look into local leagues and facilities, there is no better day than today to start!

Are you headed off to school next month?
Many post secondary institutions offer health plans that include dental coverage. If you are enrolled in a post secondary program, remember to look into the coverage offered to you. Your new school schedule may keep you busy, remember to make your oral health a priority.

Have a great month,

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

Oral Surgery

Surgery required in the oral cavity is provided, in many cases, by the general dentist. This includes tooth extraction, gum surgery, biopsies, implant placement, draining infections and more. When appropriate, a referral is made for treatment by a specialist. Various dental specialists, such as periodontists, endodontists and oral and maxillofacial surgeons, provide surgery in more complex cases.

Periodontists are generally concerned with treating the effects of gum disease on the gum and bone supporting the roots of teeth. Endodontists are generally concerned with controlling infection related to infected tooth roots. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons (usually called oral surgeons) are generally concerned with surgical treatment of the jaws and the jaw joint. This may involve them in surgical procedures that include the throat, chin and neck. There may be overlap between the different specialties, for example in the field of dental implants.

Pink Ginger Lemonade

Are you having friends and family over for a get together? Spending time on the patio? Entertaining guests? It is hot, your guests are thirsty, but as you may recall, we recently advised you to stay away from serving sugary preservative filled drinks.

Did we hear someone say LEMONADE?
What a great idea! Homemade lemonades let you control the ingredients and flavour to the taste of your guests. While there are endless options for making lemonade, here is one to get you started.
