Smoking And Your Oral Health

What are wisdom teeth?
Wisdom teeth are the third and final set of molars. Most people see these teeth erupt in their late teens or early twenties – perhaps just in time to have gained some wisdom.

Why Might They Need to be Removed?

Sometimes wisdom teeth grown in and cause no problems. Often however the development of wisdom teeth can present a series of complications.

When wisdom teeth begin to erupt the flap of gum tissue that grows over the tooth is raised, creating a space for food to become trapped which can cause infection. Another common complication is misalignment of the wisdom teeth. Misaligned wisdom teeth can be angled towards or away from the second molars. This often causes the tooth to become 'impacted' only erupting partially and not erupt to the surface at all. This improper alignment can cause crowding and potentially damage adjacent teeth, the jawbone or nerves.

Early detection through dental x-rays allows us to predict future problems and prevent them, often through removing the misaligned or 'impacted' wisdom teeth. Our team will keep a close eye on the development of your wisdom teeth during your regularly scheduled visits.

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

Bank of Canada decided to leave the Key Lending Rate flat. This is in stark contrast to 6 weeks ago, where the rhetoric was "rates are going up, and soon."

But since then, the ongoing economic turmoil in Europe and weaker than expected U.S. employment numbers, have added up to renewed Global uncertainty. So what began as a quiet whisper, just days ago, is now a growing opinion that the Bank of Canada may even trim the Key Rate - down. The other side of the coin - low mortgage rates continue to be a plus for homeowners, homebuyers, and sellers too. Also according to reports from the Big Five and Bank of Canada, Consumer debt is beginning to correct too.

On another note, OSFI is about to announce a major set of guidelines for Federally Regulated Lenders that will affect mortgage lending and reach renewals too. Some of the ideas they have floated in public have raised eyebrows. More to come as the facts become known.

More next time...
