| August 2015: Tips, eNews & More!
Back to school! Shh...say it ain't so!
Yes, it is that time of year again. But don't worry, there is still plenty of warm weather left and lots to do.
Once the Parapan Am games are over, the CNE grounds will be flooded with fun rides, carnival games, and the gluttonous concoctions of the (in)famous food building. With so many unique treats to choose from (remember last year's chocolate fried chicken?), it's easy to overindulge. So be sure to take care of your teeth before and after your visit. Brush before you go, chew sugar-free gum after eating, and be sure to brush and floss when you get home.
Are you heading off to school next month?
Many post-secondary institutions offer health plans that include dental coverage. If you are enrolled in a post-secondary program, remember to look into the coverage offered to you. Your new school schedule may keep you busy, but always remember to make your oral health a priority.
Knowing that school will alter your schedule, now may be a good time come in for a cleaning and examination. Click here to request an appointment.
Summer fun means lots of smiles – keep your child's smile healthy.

|Combat Tooth Decay!
When it comes to battling tooth decay, prevention
is the key...
Tooth Decay describes the break down of strong
healthy teeth over time.
Your tooth's surface is composed of a hard mineral
coating called enamel. Enamel is the hardest tissue in
your body, but it is by no means indestructible.
Actually, enamel is almost constantly exposed to plaque
producing bacteria. Plaque is the substance that covers
your teeth and eats away at the enamel causing the holes
known as cavities.
