November 2013: Tips, eNews & More!

While we're all nursing our candy hangovers from Halloween, the leaves have already changed. Time sure flies! But before we get carried away and start thinking about the holiday season and New Year's, we should take the time in November to get things done and gear up for winter!

Follow these tips on how to prepare for the colder months, and you'll be relaxing without a worry:
  • Take your winter jacket, gloves, and hat out of storage along with your winter boots.
  • Keep the yard tidy now and reap the rewards in the spring.
  • Put away the hoses and shut off the water. You'll avoid frozen pipes and the associated damage it can cause.
  • Be sure to change the battery in all smoke and carbon monoxide detectors in your home.

Taking care of the tasks on this winter checklist will help get your home through the colder months and make next year's spring cleanup a breeze! A little work now can go a long way in preventing any discomfort during the wintertime, as well as allow the whole family to participate in these activities.

Is it time for a cleaning or to have your dental work completed?

If your dental benefits are based on the calendar year, your maximums may not roll over into the New Year. If you don't use them they may go to waste. Call us today or click here to request an appointment and we will find a time that fits your schedule.

Have a safe and healthy month,

Dr. Nick Babatsikos and Team

Is Your Smile All It Can Be?


Or is there something missing?

Many people have a missing tooth in the back of their mouth. Since it's not visible to others, they often feel that this is not a problem but that is not entirely true. While you may not be able to see the missing tooth, you do run the risk of having the surrounding teeth drift out of position.

Missing teeth also cause teeth and gums to become more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease.

One of the solutions we offer to our patients with missing teeth is a dental bridge.

What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge is a false tooth, known as a pontic. It can be used to replace one or more missing teeth. Bridges can do many things, including reducing your risk of gum disease, help to correct minor bite issues, and can even improve your speech.

The Bank of Canada recently announced it would hold the Benchmark Interest Rate at 1 percent, where it's been for more than 3 years. This will likely have a calming effect on other rates over the near-term, as the Bank's reforecast points to a weaker than expected 4th quarter.

Unlike previous rate announcements, the Bank of Canada is no longer hinting that our economic engine is revving or that interest rates are poised to go up. Earlier this month, Bank of Canada Governor, Stephen Poloz confirmed that economic growth is behind where it was forecast to be a year, or even six months ago.

While the Bank of Canada's position on low rates may seem negative - there is likely a silver lining of "steady as it goes" for mortgage interest rates.

Wholly Guacamole

Guacamole with peas, who knew they'd make a perfect pair? Why with peas? Not only do peas give this dip substance, they also add fibre, protein and vitamins.

Avocados are full of healthy essential fats, extremely satisfying and make a great base for a dip. There are so many great ways to enjoy this delicious guacamole. Try it with corn chips, on sprouted bread, in a wrap or topped on a salad!
