February is Heart Month!

Can taking care of your smile help to protect your heart?

While we know that oral health is related to overall health, a study in the Journal of Periodontology suggests that oral health might be more closely related to the health of your heart than you may think. Links have been suggested between periodontal disease and stroke as well as heart disease.

To protect your smile as well as your heart we encourage you and your loved ones to practice good oral hygiene and maintain scheduled visits to our office to monitor and care for your healthy smile!

Also related to your heart, February hosts Valentine's Day (February 14) and Family Day (February 20), two holidays focused on spending time with loved ones.

Until next month, stay warm and keep smiling,

Neil Hahn D.D.S. and

Crowns & Bridges

If a tooth has been damaged or decayed to an extent where a filling will not suffice, a Crown (also called a Cap) is often needed to restore the tooth's shape, strength and structural function.

A crown or cap, as its name suggests, is a covering that is placed over the affected tooth. The tooth is prepared by removing and repairing any decayed area and then shaping the tooth to be capped. The cap is cemented in place to protect the tooth for years to come. Crowns are also used to reinforce a tooth that has been badly cracked or broken, as well as to seal and strengthen a tooth after root canal therapy.

Hot Apple-Cinnamon Pie..."A LA MODE"!

There's nothing like warming up with some Hot Apple Pie!

With the deep freeze outside, choosing the right 'warming foods' during these winter months is key for nourishing you body and soul.

The body naturally craves, starchy, heavy and sweet foods during the winter season. Instead of reaching for processed 'foods' that leave you feeling lethargic, try making your own creations that will satisfy your craving as well as offer nutritional value.

Since apples are widely available during the winter months and there are few things better than a little cinnamon and nutmeg to warm you up, may we suggest a HOT APPLE PIE! To help add some nutrition to the recipe you may notice some ingredients that you may not have in your pantry. All of these ingredients are available in the organic section of larger grocery stores or your local specialty grocer.
