We love spooky season, but the candy overload can be a real problem if you’re not careful! When we consume sugary treats, the dental plaque on our teeth mix with the sugar to form an acid. This acid can deteriorate the tooth enamel and as a result cavities can develop. Our team has put together some ideas for a healthy Halloween that will make all the ghouls and ghals in your family smile!
Stress is a natural feeling that everyone will experience in their life at one time or another. However, constant and high levels of stress can be very harmful. Too much stress can be linked to weakened immune systems, depression, fatigue, high blood pressure and in some cases even heart disease. What many people don’t think about is the impact stress can have on your oral health as well. If you’re experiencing high levels of stress, it’s important to check in with your dentist to make sure that no oral problems are arising.
We are so happy to have reopened our dental practice and be reunited with our valued patients. We understand that we are living in a very different world than we were just a few months ago. We want to share a few of the new precautionary measures our practice is taking so you can feel confident booking your next appointment.
