February is Heart Month!
As fate has it, Heart Month hosts Valentine's Day (February 14) and Family Day (February 18), two holidays focused on spending time with loved ones. During February, Heart Health issues will be prominent in the media. This is important to us as Heart Disease and Oral Health share many risk factors. For yourself as well as your loved ones, take some time to learn more about your heart and keeping it healthy!

Can taking care of your smile help to protect your health?
For as long as we can remember, studies have suggested a link between poor oral health (gum disease in particular) with cardiovascular issues. Experts now suggest that the link between Gum Disease and Heart Disease may be more coincidental than causal. That is not to say that there is no correlation, rather that more research needs to be completed before any definitive link can be established. Experts are sure of one thing though: good oral health is a factor in overall health and well being.

For your smile as well as your heart, we encourage you to practice good oral hygiene, maintain scheduled visits to our office and stay physically active throughout the year!

To all College and University Students Feb 16 - 23rd is Reading Week - This is a great time to contact our office to schedule a visit!

Our office will be closed Monday, February 18th for Family Day.
Celebrating Birthdays This Month: Our very own Frieda! We wish her the very best this month!

Until next month, stay warm and keep smiling,

Dr. Nick Babatsikos and Team

Jaw Pain? Missing a Tooth?

Oral and maxillofacial (upper jaw) surgery is the specialty of dentistry that includes the diagnosis, surgical and related treatment of diseases, defects, or injuries involving both the functional and esthetic aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the head, mouth, teeth, gums, jaws and neck.

Oral surgeons perform surgeries to correct problems with jaws, facial injuries following accidents, to perform implants, and to reform more complex tooth extractions, including wisdom teeth. In some cases, wisdom teeth remain below the gum line, eventually causing cysts or infections. In other cases, wisdom teeth need to be removed because of tooth overcrowding.

Oral surgeons care for patients who experience such conditions as problem wisdom teeth, facial pain, and misaligned jaws. They treat accident victims suffering facial injuries, offer reconstructive and dental implant surgery, and care for patients with...

Money Matters brought to you by our very own seasoned expert Maria Tsiaousidis.

As expected, the Bank of Canada held the Overnight Lending Rate at 1 percent.

With previous rate announcements, the BoC kept hinting that our economic engine was engaged and interest rates were ready to go up. Yesterday's surprise was that the BoC seemed to back-pedal and say, "Oooops, we overestimated economic growth, rates won't be going up anytime soon."

But we already knew that rates would stay low. At the end of last year, the U.S. Fed. announced it would continue its low-rate strategy until at least 2014. With our two economies closely linked, Canadians were comfortable that our rates would hold steady as well.

While the BoC positioning for continued low rates may seem unduly negative - there should be some happiness in "steady as it goes" for mortgage interest rates.

Cozy Chai Latte

The cold outside seems to have many of us reaching for a warm drink, often several times a day. While a hot chocolate or specialty coffee may provide temporary comfort from the weather, they often offer several unneeded components as well such as excess sugars and caffeine.

Here is a suggestion for a drink you can enjoy with friends that is not only delicious but is warm and loaded with antioxidants.
