July 2015: e-Tips, News and More!

http://trafalgarvillagedental.com/ Summer is in full swing and if you have kids at home, they are more than likely getting up later in the morning. It's easy to just give them a sugary bowl of cereal and get on with the day, but that is not doing them any favours when it comes to their oral and overall health. Try to provide fresh seasonal fruit for kids and foods like eggs which make a great snack and are a good source of protein without the sugars contained in so many breakfast meals.

Summer nights may also come with later bedtimes, after a full day outside in the sun, make sure your family tends to their teeth before bed. Sugar can cause tooth decay so it's important for kids to brush and rinse before hitting the pillow. Practice the 3-2-1 rule:

Eat 3 healthy meals, brush 2 times, and floss 1 time every day. Click here for more summertime health tips.

Now is the time to get you and your child to the dentist for a regular check-up. It's always good to take advantage of this time when your child won't have to miss school to get that necessary dental check-up. Click here to request an appointment.

Summer fun means lots of smiles – keep your child's smile healthy.

Are You Brushing After Lunch?
 
Look both ways before you cross the street...
Always hold an adult's hand...

Brush your teeth after every meal...

These were all good pieces of advice when you were a kid. Well guess what? You should always look both ways, it is nice to hold someone's hand and you should still brush your teeth after every meal!

Make a habit out of keeping a tooth brush at your workplace, and take a moment to clean your teeth after lunch - your email can wait. Keep your workplace tooth brush well covered, dry it after each use and change it more frequently than your home brush (due to germs). Brushing your teeth will help protect them from decay, refresh you, and get rid of the garlic taste from that pasta you ate. Your mouth will appreciate it and so will your coworkers.

Brushing is a part of a larger oral care program that involves regular dental visits.
