November 2013: Oakville Dental Newsletter
While we’re all nursing our candy hangovers from Halloween, the leaves have already changed. Time sure flies! But before we get carried away and start
thinking about the holiday season and New Year’s, we
should take the time in November to get things done and gear up for winter!
Follow these tips on how to prepare for the colder months, and you’ll be relaxing without a worry. What’s better than watching the snow fall from your
favourite chair in your pajamas?
Taking care of the tasks on this winter checklist will help get your home through the colder months and make next year’s spring cleanup a breeze!
- Make sure you’re well-equipped for the winter. The first snowfall and sub-zero temperatures can come quickly, so make sure you take your
winter jacket, gloves, and hat out of storage along with your winter boots.
- Keep the yard tidy now and reap the rewards in the spring. Rake and bag leaves while they are dry. Cut, weed and feed the lawn. Clean up
after your pets to avoid finding any frozen fossils come spring time!
- Put away the hoses and shut off the water. You’ll avoid frozen pipes and the associated damage it can cause.
- If you have a humidifier, clean it and make sure it works. You should also change the air filters in your furnace and test it to make
sure the heat is working. Don't forget to change the battery in all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in your home.
- Are you letting heat escape or cold air in? Take a look at the caulking around your windows and if the seal could use some improvement,
it may be time for a trip to the hardware store.
There are also several websites that offer tips on how to prepare places such as apartments, condos, and cottages for each season. A little work now can go
a long way in preventing any discomfort during
wintertime, as well as allow the whole family to participate in these activities.
Is it time for a cleaning or to have your dental work completed?
If your dental benefits are based on the calendar year, your maximums may not roll over into the New Year. If you don’t use them they may go to waste.

Have a safe and healthy month,

Combat Tooth Decay!
When it comes to battling tooth decay, prevention is the key...
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.
