April 2013: Tips, eNews and More!

April is Oral Health Month
Oral health is more than just clean teeth and healthy gums. Your healthy smile is a source of confidence, comfort and joy. It is often the first impression you offer others and is a powerful focal point.

Did you know that your mouth can also offer early warning signs of health issues throughout your body? During your dental examination we look for warning signs, sleep or stress issues (such as grinding), side effects of medications, effects of diabetes, body imbalances and even oral cancer.

Take some time this month to learn more about your oral health, visit the Canadian Dental Association's Health Month section and feel free to ask us about any oral health topic. 

If you would like to come in for a 'Spring Cleaning' and Oral Health Exam, give us a call today or click here to request an appointment.

Spring Cleaning!
This past winter was one for the books. Heavy snow and ice may have affected your home's exterior and has likely made some changes to your landscaping. While it is easy to see what has happened on the ground, we wanted to remind you to look up! Damaged eavestroughs can lead to future more expensive repairs, and damaged tree limbs can lead to unexpected surprises or worse once the weight of leaves is added over the next month. 

Until next month, 

Dr. Reinblatt, Dr. Wurman and Team



Morning Breath or Something More Serious?

 
There you are, it's Saturday morning and you have the whole day ahead of you. You roll over and look at your better half and decide to give them a good morning kiss. But wait!!! What's been brewing in your mouth over night?

Here's a question - if we floss and brush before we go to bed and settle down to sleep with a fresh mouth every night, why is it that just mere hours later, we wake up with dreaded "morning breath"?

The simple answer is that during the day, saliva works as your body's own natural mouthwash, washing away bacteria and particles that cause bad breath. While we sleep, saliva production decreases and our mouths dry out, providing the perfect environment for odour-causing bacteria.

Black Bean Salad with Fresh Mint

 
Legumes are plant-based foods that are packed with nutrients and can be instrumental in maintaining your overall health. They are high in protein, soluble and insoluble fibre, and low in cholesterol. Legumes can be helpful in weight control, aid in digestion and are extremely versatile, making them easy to incorporate into your diet.

This month we've included an easy-to-make salad that can be used as a satisfying lunch or great side to any dinner.
