September 2012: Tips, eNews and More!

 
This morning when I walked towards the office, I had to pause and look at a sight that I had almost forgotten was inevitable. It was a lone yellow leaf on the ground. I looked up at the tree and I could have sworn it was green yesterday. The first day of Autumn (September 22) is approaching, but I guess my tree already knew that.

Are you in Back to School Mode?

Whether you have children in the house or not, fall's routine can feel more demanding than summer's. Perhaps the shorter days may make it feel as if you have less time to accomplish things in any given day, perhaps the pace of people around us speeds up. Regardless of the reason, take a moment everyday to relax and breathe. While the immediate effect may not be obvious, stress and oral health are related. Stress contributes to grinding and clenching teeth, canker sores and even gum disease. We suggest starting your day off with breakfast and thinking positively about the day ahead while you brush your teeth and floss. This will give you a few minutes to yourself as well help to ward off some of the effects of stress on your oral health.

If you are looking for something with minimal stress to do with family or friends, apple and pear picking season is back. Freshly picked fruits make a great snack and can often be stored for making pies, treats and meals that will remind you of your adventure to the farm.

If you are in Toronto on September 29 be sure to check out Nuit Blanche. Explore the city and be inspired with thousands of your neighbours. Remember to bring a camera and feel free to share your photos with us, as we may include them in next month's eNewsletter.

Have a safe and healthy month,

Dr. Reinblatt, Dr. Wurman and Team



Smoking and Your Oral Health

 
We all know how bad smoking is for your overall health, but what about your oral health? Smoking has extremely detrimental effects on your mouth and teeth.

Some of the oral complications that can result from tobacco use include:
  • Increased risk of oral cancer
  • Increased the risk of gum disease
  • Gum tissue damage causing receding gums, exposed roots, increased sensitivity and decay
  • Bad breath
  • Stains that cannot be removed by brushing
  • Build up of tartar resulting in more frequently needed dental cleanings
  • Damaged sense of smell and taste
