Happy 146 Birthday Canada!

We hope you enjoyed the long weekend and took a moment to get outside and explore a piece of this wonderful country (even if it was just your own patio).

Did you know?
There is no accurate count of the number of lakes in Canada.
If we define a lake as being larger than 3 square km in area, there are over 30,000 lakes in Canada; if we lower the minimum threshold, the number climbs well into the millions, with over 250,000 lakes in Ontario alone. Canada has more lakes than all other countries combined, which contributes in no small measure to our country's overall beauty.

With all of the fresh water at our fingertips we ask, are you drinking enough?

While estimates of how much water you should be drinking vary from one study to the next, there is usually a common theme. Most of us are not drinking enough!
Keep a glass of water at your desk and drink it throughout the day, getting up to refill your glass will give you a reason to take a break every hour or so. Drinking water helps proper hydration, cleanses your body and rinses bacteria from your mouth as you drink!

Have a safe and healthy summer from,

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

Custom Fitted Mouthguards
Mouthguards are flexible dental appliances, usually made of plastic materials, which are worn by athletes to protect the mouth from possible damage.

Mouthguards can prevent injuries to the teeth including breakage or loss that can be painful and disfiguring. There is also protection from injury to the soft tissues like the tongue and the inside of the cheeks. It has been suggested that mouthguards also afford protection from concussions and neck injuries. The mouthguard works by providing a resilient surface that distributes and dissipates forces.

Whenever there is a possibility of contact, either with other competitors (any contact sport) or any immovable objects (squash, skateboarding ...), the wearing of mouthguards is highly recommended.

Are You Juicing?

Juicing your own fresh fruits and vegetables has gained a lot of attention, and for good reasons. Juices are delicious and carry many health benefits. Fruits and vegetables you juice yourself will be better for you than most fruit drinks you can buy at the store,( wash fruits and vegetables thoroughly and only make enough for immediate use).

We're not suggesting a 'juice diet', rather replacing an over-the-counter drink or a light meal or snack. Adding a fresh juice into your daily diet can have positive effects on your well-being. A fresh juice in the morning can offer a quick healthy alternative to a traditional toast, eggs and bacon or a midday juice can give you a refreshing boost of energy.
