October 2014: Oakville Dental Newsletter
The summer was too short, wasn't it?
The temperature is beginning to drop, so what are we going to do?
Fall is a beautiful season full of wonderful changes - the leaves, the brisk air and the cozy sweaters. Love it
or hate it ... everything is now pumpkin-flavoured!
Thanksgiving (October 13th) and Halloween (October 31st) are just around the corner. Halloween falls on a
Friday, meaning that ghosts and goblins will be out early and all through the evening, so be careful as you
head home from work or school. As always, with Thanksgiving and Halloween kicking off the holiday season,
remember not to over indulge too early and avoid binging on candy too much.

healthy. Generally crowns are to repair broken down or weakend teeth. What gets people confused is that often, after a root canal, a crown is often recommended.

Inspect any candy received during trick or treating adventures.
Limit the amount of sweets they consume.
Ensure they eat a large, healthy meal before they venture out (if they are not hungry, they will be
less likely to sneak too many treats during their journey).
