August 2014 - Tips, eNews and More

Warm weather, long days and so much to do!

There's always a palpable hurry in August to get as much done as possible before the summer is over and it's time to go back to school.

The CNE (or The Ex) at Exhibition Place is always a fun place to be on a summer's day.For many people, a must-see attraction is the famed Food Building where you'll find a great variety of delights.

While it's fun to indulge our gluttonous side every once and a while, be sure to take care when eating anything hot, spicy, or sugary. It may not be possible to brush your teeth when on an outing, but a drink or swish with water can clear some excess sugar and acidity from the mouth. You could also chew some sugar-free gum after you eat. Chewing sugar-free gum helps protect your teeth between meals as it increases saliva flow - the mouth's natural defense against acid. And don't forget: chewing sugar-free gum is no substitution for brushing, so make sure you still brush your teeth when you get home.

School is just around the corner...

If you are heading off to college or university, bring your good oral health habits along with you. Be sure to check your school's student health plan as it may include dental coverage. Remember to review the coverage offered to you and let us know if you have any questions. As for the younger kids, August is a great time to come in for a checkup before the hectic school year begins. Call or click here today to book an appointment.

We hope you are enjoying the summer!

Protect Your Smile with a Mouthguard!


If you've enrolled your child or yourself into hockey, basketball, baseball, lacrosse, soccer, self defense or any contact sport or activity, you will undoubtedly need to create a list of safety equipment. Even non-contact sports (think of skateboarding, squash, etc.) can result in mouth injuries. If a mouthguard isn't on your list of equipment, add it now!

Your child should be protected from a young age to avoid tooth loss and other oral injuries. As for reasons to protect your mouth, simply take a look at any nostalgic photos of the old time hockey players, have a good laugh at the field goal style teeth...and get a mouthguard.
