August 2021: Tips, eNews & More!

 

August has arrived and it is looking better than ever! Thanks to the continuing vaccine rollout and significant improvements in public health trends, many restrictions have been lifted and we are closer to "a new normal". There is plenty of time for us to enjoy the warm weather and engage in summer activities with our loved ones before summer draws to an end and schools reopen for the next term. Make sure to use your time wisely by indulging in summer fun and also taking care of yourself. Stay hydrated and remember to check-in about your oral health needs.

If you and your family enjoy playing sports, especially high-impact sports such as soccer or basketball, be sure to protect your smile with a mouthguard. Learn more about how a mouthguard can protect your teeth and gums below. Did you know a mouthguard also can help with issues related to clenching, grinding, and sleep apnea?

With back-to-school season just around the corner, don't forget to plan a dental visit for your child(ren) before they start the school year. Book a check-up appointment with us so you and your family can have that smile in top shape for anything that comes your way. We look forward to seeing you and taking care of your oral health!

Stay safe and healthy,





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




Protect Your Smile with a Mouthguard

 
Mouthguards are flexible dental appliances that can be worn to protect your teeth from clenching, grinding, and sports injuries. Sports guards are used to prevent injury, primarily to the teeth and gums if the lower jaw collides with the upper jaw or if there is direct trauma during contact sports. There are claims as well that they can lessen the chance of major injuries such as concussions and jaw fractures. Sports guards are made of plastic materials that fit comfortably over your teeth and gums. A different kind of mouthguard is constructed for people who clench or grind their teeth. Chronic clenching and grinding can be very damaging to the teeth and can be a cause of jaw muscle and joint pain.
