February 2014: Tips, eNews & More!

Do you have Olympic fever?

The Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games are finally here. We are all excited to cheer for our Canadian athletes as they go for gold. Go Canada Go!

Are you feeling the chill of the season? We say embrace it! Take advantage of Family Day on the 17th and get outside! Ski, skate, or just put on some snow pants and play in the snow! The cold isn't going away anytime soon (despite what some groundhogs may say), so why not enjoy it? Be sure to bundle up and layer yourself well, you don't want to catch a cold.

If you do feel yourself getting sick, be sure to drink plenty of warm fluids and orange juice to load up on vitamin C to help your body stay strong. Some other tips to stay healthy this season include:

  • Wash your hands often
  • Avoid touching your face
  • Throw tissues away after use
  • Get plenty of sleep and good rest
Until next month, stay warm and keep smiling,

Afraid of Drills? Try Air Abrasion!

Through the use of an air abrasion tool, we can offer our patients a needle-less, drill-less fillings. The air abrasion tool allows us to remove decay, surface stains, and prepare a tooth for procedures such as sealants and bonding, without using a traditional dental drill.

Air abrasion, as its name suggests uses high pressure air to blast abrasive non-toxic particles at the effected tooth. This tool is highly accurate and allows us to maintain as much of your natural tooth enamel as possible.

Air abrasion tools do not cause the heat or vibration associated a traditional drill. This eliminates the sound and feel of 'the drill' as well as the need for freezing in many cases. As procedures using air abrasion usually involve small areas of repair, we can often complete them in a shorter period of time and without the numbness from the freezing you can get back to your day right away.

Air abrasion can not be used on larger cavities or more involved procedures such as root canal therapy. For treatments involving a traditional drill we offer other alternatives to make treatment as comfortable as possible and eliminate any anxiety you may have.
