July 2015: Oakville Dental Newsletter
Summer is in full swing and if you have kids at home, they are more than likely getting up later in the morning. It's easy to just give them a sugary bowl of cereal and get on with the day, but that is not doing them any favours when it comes to their oral and overall health. Try to provide fresh seasonal fruit for kids and foods like eggs which make a great snack and are a good source of protein without the sugars contained in so many breakfast meals.
Summer nights may also come with later bedtimes, after a full day outside in the sun, make sure your family tends to their teeth before bed. Sugar can cause tooth decay so it's important for kids to brush and rinse before hitting the pillow. Practice the 3-2-1 rule:
Eat 3 healthy meals, brush 2 times, and floss 1 time every day.
Now is the time to get you and your child to the dentist for a regular check-up. It's always good to take advantage of this time when your child won't have to miss school to get that necessary dental check-up. Click here to request an appointment.
Summer fun means lots of smiles – keep your child's smile healthy.
Have a safe and healthy month,

What You Don't Know About E-Cigarettes
What Are E-Cigarettes?
The battery powered electronic device contains a cartridge with e-juice (made up of vegetable glycerin, propylene glycol and liquid nicotine) and a heating element to produce vapor. Since vapor is produced rather than smoke, the amount of toxic chemicals emitted are significantly reduced. This battery powered device also reduces the odor that normally accompanies smoking.

Frozen Fruit Pops
They are much healthier than many concentrated fruit juices you find in the grocery store and, because it's frozen, it'll cool you down and take longer to finish which means you are less likely to overindulge. Try our recipe, or use your favourite fruits.
