October 2012: Tips, eNews & More!

Autumn is the favourite season for many of us. The brisk morning air makes for a perfect walk before we head to work, while the colourful leaf displays seem a fair trade for the shorter days.

Thanksgiving (October 8th) and Halloween (October 31) are just around the corner. Halloween falls on a Wednesday, meaning that ghosts and goblins may be out early in the evening, so be careful as you head home from work or school. Whether you are hosting a get together, attending one, or are just looking for a treat, we've included a recipe that uses in-season local fruits and berries.

What's Your Dental Plan?
Is your dental plan based on the calendar year? If so, your coverage maximums start over on January 1 and your unused benefits may not roll over into the new year. That means if you don't use them, you lose them! If we haven't seen your smile in a while, click here to schedule an appointment in time to benefit from your Plan.

October is Orthodontic Health Month
Straight teeth and proper bite alignment are more important than just a beautiful smile. Straight teeth are essential to gum health, speech, proper chewing and more. Bite alignment contributes to jaw comfort, facial appearance and oral hygiene - and the list goes on. It is never too late to straighten your teeth and correct your bite. We would be pleased to discuss the health and beauty aspects of your mouth. Feel free to request a consultation today!

Remember to be extra careful on the roads and have a safe and healthy month.

Dr. Nick Babatsikos and Team

Mind the Gap!

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.

Wild Blueberry Tart

While the hot dry summer reduced the pick your own apple crops, Autumn blueberry and strawberries are still available at many pick your own farms or can be found in abundance at your local grocery store. Picking your own food can be extremely satisfying and allows you to know exactly how fresh the foods you are feeding your family are.

If you can't make it out to the farm for this recipe, we suggest looking for berries that were grown locally in Ontario. This not only supports local farmers but will likely be closer to their harvest date and more flavourful.
