July 2013 - Tips, eNews & More!
Happy 146 Birthday Canada!

We hope you enjoyed the long weekend and took a moment to get outside and explore a piece of this wonderful country (even if it was just your own patio).

Did you know?
There is no accurate count of the number of lakes in Canada. If we define a lake as being larger than 3 square km in area, there are over 30,000 lakes in Canada; if we lower the minimum threshold, the number climbs well into the millions, with over 250 000 lakes in Ontario alone. Canada has more lakes than all other countries combined, which contributes in no small measure to our country's overall beauty.

With all of the fresh water at our fingertips we ask, are you drinking enough?

While estimates of how much water you should be drinking vary from one study to the next, there is usually a common theme. Most of us are not drinking enough!
Keep a glass of water at your desk and drink it throughout the day, getting up to refill your glass will give you a reason to take a break every hour or so. Drinking water helps proper hydration, cleanses your body and rinses bacteria from your mouth as you drink!

Have a safe and healthy summer from the team at,

Dr. Pio's Top 10 List

  1. Dental Checkups Include Oral Cancer Screenings.
    Dental checkups include screenings for oral cancer, a serious oral disease of the mouth, lips, or throat, but like most cancer is treatable if detected early.
  2. Gum (Periodontal) Disease Affects Your Overall Health.
    One of the principal causes of tooth loss; gum disease has also been linked to other diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease. An early sign of gum disease is Bleeding gums. If detected early, it can be treated quite effectively, especially with our Oravital® program.
  3. Dental Cleanings and Checkups are Extremely Important to your Wellbeing.
    Dr. Pio wants to prevent problems before they happen - regular checkups and cleanings will help to maintain your teeth and gums.
  4. Brush and Floss twice Daily.
    This helps to prevent cavities by removing the plaque which causes tooth decay. This daily practice is extremely important in preventing gum disease.
  5. Bad Breath.
    This could be the result of a dental problem. In most situations, there is a direct link between bad breath and a dental condition. Mouthwash will only mask the problem, not treat it.

Are You Juicing?

Juicing your own fresh fruits and vegetables has gained a lot of attention, and for good reasons. Juices are delicious and carry many health benefits. While any fruits and vegetables you juice yourself will be better for you than sugary/preserved/pasteurized juices you can buy at the store, we suggest you juice organic fruits and vegetables when possible (and wash fruits and vegetables thoroughly).

We're not suggesting a 'juice diet', rather replacing an over-the-counter drink or a light meal or snack. Adding a fresh juice into your daily diet can have amazing positive effects on your well-being. A fresh juice in the morning can offer a quick healthy alternative to a traditional toast, eggs and bacon, a midday juice can give you a refreshing boost of energy, while having a nutrient filled juice for dinner can free your body up to repair itself overnight rather than digest a heavy meal.
