September 2013: Tips, eNews and More!

 
Back to School!

Believe it or not, the first day of autumn is quickly approaching. Autumn is a wonderful season which offers many outdoor and indoor activities to keep you active. It also means the kids are back in school!

Are You in Autumn Mode?

Perhaps it's the shorter days or maybe the self-imposed routine, but everyone seems to be on a mission to get... somewhere. For many of us, autumn feels more demanding than summer. Real or imagined, the added pressure can contribute to stress. While the immediate links may not be obvious, stress and oral health are related. Stress has been linked to bruxism (grinding and clenching), canker sores and even gum disease.

Relax. Breathe. Start your day off with breakfast. Think positively about the day while you brush your teeth and floss in the morning. These two to five minutes can help you to reduce stress as well as ward off some of the effects of on your oral health.

Time for Your Cleaning

Is it time for a cleaning or to have unfinished dental work completed?
If your dental benefits are based on the calendar year, your maximums may not roll over into the New Year. Our calendar fills up quickly this time of year, so we encourage you to call today if you need an appointment before the New Year.

Have a safe and healthy month,

Dr. Reinblatt, Dr. Wurman and Team


Want To Improve Your Smile?

Is there Silver in Your Smile?

Composite resin fillings are made of plastic and tiny glass particles. One main advantage of composite fillings is that they are tooth-colored, so they are less noticeable than amalgam ("silver") fillings. Unlike amalgam fillings, composite fillings bond directly to the tooth, making the tooth stronger than it would be with an amalgam filling. Because they bond directly to the tooth, composite resin fillings requires less drilling. By contrast, amalgam fillings sit in a pocket in the tooth that the dentist drills.

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.

Breakfast in a Pinch

 
Are you looking for a breakfast/snack idea that you can make once and reach for in a pinch?

Granola is the answer!

Homemade granola is a tasty and healthy treat that can compliment your breakfast or work as a snack on its own. Making granola at home allows you to control the ingredients and create it to taste, rather than store bought creations that may contain preservatives and fillers that you don't want or need in your diet.
