February 2015 - Happy New Year
It looks like we are going to have an early spring this year...
Wiarton Willie did not see his shadow! Donít get too excited - February is usually the coldest month.
Despite the chilly temperatures, February can be a great month! With Valentine's Day and Family Day happening this month, youíll have plenty of opportunities to spend time with those you care about most. March break is also just around the corner, and that means spring is soon to follow!

|Are you brushing your teeth away?
A common problem that patients complain about is sensitive teeth. One of the avoidable causes of sensitive teeth that is truly 'in your hands' is aggressive brushing. Many people are under the misconception that brushing harder with a firm bristled tooth brush will better clean their teeth. This, coupled with an improper brushing technique (using a back and forth motion) can damage enamel, exposing dentin and resulting in tooth sensitivity.
Using a soft bristle brush, a proper technique, along with regular cleanings at our office, will be more effective at keeping your smile beautiful and healthy. We also recommend using an electric toothbrush: studies have shown that electric tooth brush users generally brush longer, with better results than those using a manual brush. The electric tooth brush will safely give your teeth that smooth clean feeling that you may be trying to achieve through your current aggressive brushing technique.
