5 Summer Snack Tips To Protect Your Child’s Teeth

Aug 18, 2011   //   by Grandview Corners   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on 5 Summer Snack Tips To Protect Your Child’s Teeth

Summer days means lazy afternoons by the pool and busy evenings at sporting events, concerts or on the road traveling with the family. Concession stands and snack bars tempt us with a variety of sweets and sugar-filled soda and juices, so parents must create strategies that will protect your children’s dental health and counteract tooth decay!

Here are five easy-to-follow summer tips that will help protect your child’s teeth from decay:

Nothing beats H20. Bacteria are attracted to sugar and together they create an acid, which causes tooth decay and deterioration.  Water rinses your mouth of bacteria and acid in addition to increasing the formation of your saliva.

Be sure to read all labeling on food and beverages you are choosing for your family at the supermarket. Consider your family’s usual selection of beverages… Are they full of sugar? Stay away from beverages loaded with sugar and acid.

A straw can save your child’s smile. If your kids are going to drink a sugary beverage, using a straw can keep sugar away from their teeth. It’s best to drink sugary beverages with a meal rather than permitting kids to sip on them throughout the day.  Acid penetrates tooth enamel – so follow up sugary beverages with water to rinse your mouth until brushing time!

Consider the length of your snack sessions. We all want to have a treat now and again – the key is moderation. If your children are sucking away on sour candy keys or chewing Swedish berries throughout the day, acid is given the opportunity to erode their teeth. Snacks that can be eaten in one session, like popcorn or baked chips are a better alternative – teeth are exposed to food for a shorter time, and these snacks encourage saliva production to rinse away the food particles.

Protect your kid’s teeth with protein! Dietary Protein works remarkably well as a guard against acid, so feeding your kids nuts, cheese, and cold cut sandwiches is an excellent alternative to the unhealthy fast food choices your kids may make on their own. The same is true for fruits and vegetables that have high water content.  Apples, pears, and celery are excellent choices to help rinse bacteria from your mouth.

In addition to the above tips it’s important to maintain oral health habits like daily brushing and flossing throughout your summer vacation.  It’s easy to get off track when away from home or when your children are off their usual schedule.

Summer is also a great time to bring your children to Grandview Corners Dental & Wellness Centre.  It won’t be long before back to school season begins, so take advantage of your child’s free time to book a routine dental checkup and examination.

Call us today to book a summer appointment for your kids – you’ll be glad you did!

Important Dental Advice For Expectant Mothers

Aug 11, 2011   //   by Grandview Corners   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on Important Dental Advice For Expectant Mothers

If you’re pregnant or planning on having a baby in the near future it is very important to visit Grandview Corners Dental & Wellness Centre, so we can partner with you to ensure a healthy and worry-free pregnancy. Put simply, healthy moms make healthy babies and excellent oral health is a key aspect of optimal overall health.

Minimizing exposure to X-rays and anaesthesia just makes sense for expectant moms – we’ll work with you to ensure that any outstanding dental X-rays and dental treatments are completed prior to pregnancy so that you don’t have to factor in appointments or dental emergencies.

Preventative dentistry visits can also provide a health benefit prior to and throughout your pregnancy.   Research indicates that over 40% of women within reproductive age have some form of gum disease.   Gum disease is a bacterial infection that saps your vitality and the ability of your body to care and nurture for your growing baby.   What is more, studies reveal that there is close correlation between pre-term births, low birth weights and gum disease!

Maintaining excellent oral health is also important for new moms – routine cleanings reduce the risk of passing on harmful oral bacteria to your new born through saliva exchange from kissing or testing baby’s food. Oral bacteria can cause harm even before your baby’s teeth break through the gums.

At Grandview Corners Dental we celebrate our patient’s lives and seek to support families at every stage – providing educational information and proactively managing oral health for expectant and new mothers is just one way we show our commitment!

If you are pregnant or planning on having a baby in the near future, allow us to help protect you and your baby from the dangers of oral bacteria and gum disease.   Contact us to book a personalized hygiene program today!

Do You Suffer From Nighttime Teeth Grinding? We Can Help!

Jul 28, 2011   //   by Grandview Corners   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on Do You Suffer From Nighttime Teeth Grinding? We Can Help!

If you suffer from jaw pain, frequent headaches, and worn teeth, you are likely grinding your teeth at night while you sleep. Bruxism (commonly known as ‘teeth grinding’) is a common problem that can compromise your quality of life by reducing the function of your teeth and causing chronic pain in your neck and jaw.

In today’s fast paced society, stress is an inevitable part of life and one of the ways stress can manifest itself is through involuntary tooth grinding while you sleep. Besides the fact that it can be loud enough to disturb your sleeping partner, bruxism can keep you from getting the peaceful rest you need to perform at your best.   It can also cause significant pain and headaches during your waking hours, hindering your capacity to enjoy your life and live it to the fullest.

Teeth that have endured the pressure and wear of nightly grinding are much more likely to chip, break, and deteriorate over time. The damage incurred from teeth grinding can be costly to repair. With this in mind, correcting your bruxism as early as possible with a dental night guard can save you the headaches and financial cost of worn teeth in the future.

When you suffer from night teeth grinding, the force of the grinding, along with the pressure created by clenching your jaws, not only causes wear and damage to you teeth but can also significantly reduce your bite function. Poor bite function can reduce your nutrient intake and thus your energy levels, along with your whole body heath and overall happiness!

Our team at Grandview Corners Dental is invested in protecting your oral and overall health, and in the case of bruxism, we believe it is in your best interest to correct the problem with a dental night guard. It’s simply the most effective solution to bruxism – a solution that is guaranteed to protect your teeth, thereby enriching your health, lifestyle and well-being.

Your experts at Grandview Corners Dental wish to partner with you to combat bruxism.   We offer night guards which protect your teeth from the damage caused by countless hours of nighttime tooth grinding.

Suffer from those nagging headaches and that persistent jaw pain no longer.   Call our office today to enjoy the benefits of a good night’s rest!

The Link Between Diabetes and Oral Health

Jul 9, 2011   //   by Grandview Corners   //   Blog  //  Comments Off on The Link Between Diabetes and Oral Health

The American Diabetes Association recently announced that studies have identified and confirmed a direct correlation between diabetes and  gum disease. Not only are diabetics more prone to gum disease, but oral health problems such as gingivitis can also affect blood glucose stability, leading to the advancement of diabetes.

Our experts at  Grandview Corners Dental  share a passion for staying at the forefront of the healthcare field as the industry evolves in knowledge, treatments and  technology.  New research has confirmed that excellent oral health is integral to the maintenance of excellent whole body health.   Evidently, this link is vital to our patients who are diabetic.

Diabetes and unstable blood glucose levels increase your risk of developing serious gum disease and losing teeth. Furthermore, recent and potentially groundbreaking studies have found that gum disease can contribute to a rise in blood sugar and thus make diabetes harder to control.

If you suffer from a diabetic condition, you can effectively increase your chances of related complications by neglecting to care for your teeth and gums. The most important ways for our diabetic patients to maintain optimal oral health include: 1) Controlling glucose levels, 2) Visiting Grandview Corners Dental every six months for your professional cleaning, 3) Keeping us aware of how you are managing your diabetes, 4) Brushing your teeth at least twice daily after meals, flossing daily, and using mouthwash, 5) Quitting smoking, 6) Becoming more aware of warning signs such as  receding,  tender or bleeding gums, and loose teeth.

Grandview Corners Dental is concerned with every aspect of our patients’ health, and would like to partner with you to restore and revitalize your overall heath. If you have diabetes, speak to one of our team members about how we can best protect your oral health.
