April 2015: e-Tips, News and More!

http://trafalgarvillagedental.com/ Spring is in the air!

The sun is staying out longer and longer, making the days warmer and warmer - finally! The return of summer seems to elicit more frequent smiles along with the opportunity for outdoor get-togethers with friends and family.

In your preparation for spring and summer, don't neglect your oral health. If your smile has lost some luster over the years, we can help! Ask us about the available options for straightening, brightening and enhancing your smile.

April is Oral Health Month

Oral health is directly related to your overall health, and your mouth may offer early warning signs of existing health issues. One of the most important things you can do is schedule regular visits to our office. our appointment is much more than just a cleaning! During your visit we will also:

  • examine your gums
  • check for potential warning signs of oral cancer, diabetes, and vitamin deficiencies
  • note any irregularities in your bite, saliva and temporomandibular joint (TMJ)
  • provide you with tips for maintaining good oral hygiene between appointments
If you are overdue for a check-up, give us a call today or click here to request an appointment.

Until next time, keep smiling,

Dr. Kapoor and the Trafalgar Village Dental Team

Protect Your Child's Smile
 
Mouthguards are flexible dental appliances worn by athletes to protect teeth from possible damage. They are usually made of plastic materials that fit comfortably over your teeth and gums. There are over-the-counter variations available, but for the highest level of protection we recommend a custom fitted mouthguard that is made specifically for your smile.

Mouthguards prevent the lower jaw from impacting into the upper jaw, averting major injuries such as concussions, jaw fractures, neck injuries as well as limiting bruising and laceration of the lips and cheeks.

Malaysian Mango Chicken Curry
 
Eggplant Parmesan is a fun meal to make and delicious to eat. Our favourite thing to do is to keep some leftovers and make great, hearty eggplant parmesan sandwiches!

This recipe directs you to bake the eggplant instead of the more traditional frying method which is both healthier and results in crispier eggplant.
