March 2014 - Tips, eNews & More!
 

Do you deserve a break?

It has been an especially cold winter and while the days are getting a little longer and warmer every day, the cold can take its toll on everybody. As spring approaches, take time to relax.

It is also a good time to get ahead of your dental care before summer really starts. What better time than now to make an appointment for the whole family?

March is a great time to start getting fit for the summer, so it is appropriate that March is National Nutrition Month and this year, the theme is 'Simply Cook and Enjoy!' Proper nutrition is integral to overall health and vitality. The foods you choose to eat also impact your oral health from the moment you put them in your mouth.

Can Your Smile Handle the Pressure?

 
Watching a thrilling movie or the championship game can be a 'nail biting' experience.The excitement has us sitting at the edge of our seats, our hearts pounding... and some of us even taking the 'nail biting' aspect literally.

How does nail biting affect your teeth?
The primary issue with nail biting is the pressure it puts on your front teeth. These teeth are not built to withstand the same amount of pressure that your molars are. Nail biting can cause the enamel protecting your teeth to fracture as well as wearing down and chipping the edges. Despite being the hardest substance in your body, enamel is by no means invincible.

Guilt-Free Comfort Food

 
A big bowl of pasta makes great comfort food. Who can resist rich pasta topped with a thick and creamy sauce? And despite how delicious this recipe is, there's no reason to be afraid of carbs and calories. This Brown Rice Pesto Pasta is complete comfort without the guilt!

Pesto is a fun, easy sauce to make. It is full of chlorophyll and protein. The miso and pinenuts give it a "cheesy" flavour. Pesto tastes great on anything from brown rice pasta and quinoa, to homemade pizza crust, on wraps or simply as a dip for veggies. If beans are added to this recipe it will give your pasta a hearty boost of protein and fiber and make each bowl of pasta more filling!
