May 2014 - Tips, eNews & More!
 
Spring has taken hold and the great Canadian Summer is upon us. With the days getting longer, most of us are spending more time in the sun. Aside from the obvious safety tips like putting on sunscreen and drinking plenty of water, there are a lot of precautions you can take to make sure you're safe in the great outdoors:
  • Wear a helmet when you cycle
  • Make sure you wear supportive footwear when going on long walks and hikes
  • Use a good mouth guard for playing sports such as soccer and football to protect your teeth.
  • Contact our office and we can provide you with a high quality, properly fitted mouth guard.

Is There Silver in Your Smile?

 
Remember years ago, when you'd visit your dentist and find out that you had a cavity even though you couldn't see it? You'd schedule an appointment to have it filled and return in a week or so. On your return visit the doctor would fill your tooth and prevent the future problems that could arise from a growing cavity. Upon looking in a mirror, however, you'd noticed that there was an awful looking silver filling. You almost wished it was still the cavity that you couldn't see.

These metallic fillings were standard practice until not so long ago. While these fillings are unattractive to begin with, over time, the material they are composed of can corrode and leak, blackening the silver and many times the tooth.
