|September 2016: Tips, eNews and More!
Fall is just around the corner, and for many families that means a return to school and work. During this change of routine, don't forget to take a few moments in your busy day to relax and focus on your health. Studies have shown that stress and oral health are closely related, but remember that small lifestyle changes are easy to implement into your day. A healthy breakfast boosts performance by improving your concentration and overall health. Take some time to brush and floss before setting out on your day, and the results will assist you in maintaining a happy and healthy smile.
You still have time to take advantage of the outdoors with many events coming up. If you're in or around Toronto, check out Toronto International Buskerfest, Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), Small World Music Festival, all the way to the end of the month with Oktoberfest on September 30th and October 1st, along with Nuit Blanche!

|Children and their Oral Health
Proper oral hygiene, even from the early stages of a child's life, help contribute to a life time of oral health. We recommend cleaning your child's mouth and gums twice daily (you can use a clean washcloth or specially purposed finger covering that you can buy at most pharmacies), to remove particles and bacteria as well as to create a comfort level. We recommend introducing a soft bristle toothbrush from the very first tooth.
Did you know that tooth decay is more common in children than hay fever and asthma?
Teeth generally begin to erupt at around 4 months of age and usually continue through their 3rd year. Teeth erupting can often cause discomfort making your little one quite irritable. Teething causes tender gums and can be frustrating for a young child who has few options for expressing their discomfort. While teething may be a rite of passage that we have all gone through, there is no reason not to make the process a little easier. If your little one is teething, ask us about options to soothe their gums.
Once a child starts teething, the importance of maintaining oral hygiene becomes even more essential.
