August 2015: Oakville Dental Newsletter
Yes, it is that time of year again. But don't worry, there is still plenty of warm weather left and lots to do.
Once the Parapan Am games are over, the CNE grounds will be flooded with fun rides, carnival games and the gluttonous concoctions of the (in)famous food building. With so many unique treats to choose from (remember last year's chocolate fried chicken?), it's easy to overindulge, so be sure to take care of your teeth before and after your visit. Brush before you go, chew sugar-free gum after eating, and be sure to brush and floss when you get home.
Are you heading 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, but always remember to make your oral health a priority.
Knowing that school will alter your schedule, now may be a good time come in for a cleaning and examination. Click here to request an appointment and we will find a time that fits your schedule.
Have a safe and healthy month,
Dr. Steven Rosenblat and Team
Combat Tooth Decay!
Tooth Decay describes the break down of strong healthy teeth over time.
Your tooth's surface is composed of a hard mineral coating called enamel. Enamel is the hardest tissue in your body, but it is by no means indestructible. Actually, enamel is almost constantly exposed to plaque producing bacteria. Plaque is the substance that covers your teeth and eats away at the enamel causing the holes known as cavities.
