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.

Are you hesitant to show your teeth when you smile?
Is your smile missing something? Maybe even a full tooth?
Many people, for one reason or another, have lost a tooth. Reasons range from poor dental hygiene to any variety of accidents. Whatever the reason for the missing tooth we can repair your smile and replace your tooth with a dental implant.
A dental implant is a small prosthetic post that is placed into the bone of the upper or lower jaw. The post functions as the root portion of a lost natural tooth and serves as an anchor for a replacement tooth. An artificial tooth is then attached to the post.
Dental implants look and feel exactly like natural teeth - in fact, no one other than you and your dentist will be able to tell the difference.
