Now that Halloween is quickly approaching, we would like to remind everyone to brush and floss. We all love our sweet treats but we can’t forget about our hygiene as well. 😁😁😁😁

September is when kids are back into school full force. A healthy smile makes for a happy kid. .
.
.
Remember to book your kids in for their checkups just as you would remember to buy new clothes or school supplies for the year. .

Stainless crowns are metal caps that help protect primary molars that are heavily decayed. Primary molars are important because they hold the space for the adult teeth to come in and need to last until the child is 10-12 years old. Often these teeth end up this way because the little people do not cooperate when the parents are trying to brush their teeth or the parents let the child brush on their own way tooooo early. Make sure your little one gets their teeth checked regularly. Things happen quickly in the children’s dentition.

ABFRACTION! When the root surfaces are exposed due to gum recession, and a notch is created. Most common reason why we see this in our office is usually due to brushing too hard.
Friendly reminder to brush gently, everyone.

Whether you're a couch potatoe 🥔 who loves to snack or a gym rat that lives on sport drinks and protein bars, did you know BOTH these lifestyles can have a negative effect on your dental health?
.
We all know that sugary snacks like candy, sodas, and high calorie foods like fried anything, fast food can have adverse effects on our physical health, but how dentally? Every time we eat, the pH level in our mouths drops, making it more acidic. An acidic environment makes it favourable for the bacteria that causes tooth decay, mutans streptococci, to thrive. So imagine if you're a student or work a desk job and you snack on candy, chips, sip on a soda or bubble tea all day long, just imagine how many times the pH in your mouth drops!
.
And for those of you gym goers, make sure you read the labels of your sport drink or electrolyte replenishers. Protein and granola bars are a sneaky one too depending on the ingredients. Some may contain a lot more sugar than you think. So the next time you think you're eating or drinking something healthy, try reading the labels first to see how much sugar you are ingesting. .
Remember, it's the drop in pH in the mouth and sugars from food and drinks that feed the bacteria in our mouths. In doing so, acid is produced that dissolves and damages our teeth resulting in decay.

WHAT JUST HAPPENED? July marks the 22nd year I have been a dentist. No longer the young buck but the old runt but along the journey I have learned a thing or two. Dentistry isn’t always what it’s cracked up to be. It’s not always about the hole in the tooth but rather the person that owns the tooth. It’s the relationships you build, the stories, the laughter we share, the goofing around with the little peoples and watching them grow up and move on that has made my career so rewarding. Don’t get me wrong it’s not always ☀️and 🌈. Sometimes you got to get down. Sometimes you take a punch but if the force is strong you’ll row yourself to a better tomorrow. I have been blessed to have the support of my awesome dental team. Without them there would truly be less sunny days. We work hard and play hard. I truly couldn’t do it without them. Can’t wait to see what the future has in store for this old man and the 🌊da’s #dental #workhardplayhard #passion #cheeseball #dentalfamily #lookoverhere

Our office did our annual team building outting last Wednesday. Since it was pouring rain in the lower mainland in British Columbia, our original plan of canoeing Widgeon Lake and hiking to a waterfall had to be put on the back burner/postponed. .
Backup plan? We went indoor rock climbing at @clipnclimbvancouver! We spent two hours having a friendly competition to win a mystery prize for whoever achieved the highest points. We conquered our fear of "dropping" from the top and rapelling, climbed different walls of difficulty, raced each other for fastest times, took a "leap of faith", and went to "cloud 9". .
After working up an appetite, we satisfied our hanger at Phnom Phenh, a must try if you haven't gone! Definitely give their chicken wings and butter beef a try. 🤤
.
When the sun finally started to come out mid afternoon, we walked off our full bellies by strolling over to the Main Street Station Farmers Market that happens weekly on Wednesdays. Not only do we support each other, we support local businesses as well! .
It wasn't the ideal outting, but we made the best of our time together and still had fun.
.
Any guesses who won the competition at indoor climbing? Post your guess below!

Last week we talked about oral piercings, a lifestyle habit, and the effects it could have on your oral and dental health. .
This week, onychophagy or onychopgagia, otherwise commonly known as nail biting. Nail biting is an oral compulsive habit. Excitement, stress, nervousness or simply out of boredom are common causes.
.
How can nail biting be harmful to your teeth? .
🔴 Wearing down of front teeth,cracking or chipping of teeth- The grinding friction can gradually wear the enamel away, weakening them, which could also cause the teeth to chip or crack.
.
🔴 Malocclusion or gaps- Depending on how you bite your nails, it could wedge your teeth apart causing gaps. When your teeth are not in its natural position, how your teeth come together could be affected over time.
.
🔴 Gingivitis- How clean are your nail beds? Dirt, germs and bacteria could be transferred to the mouth during nail biting. With constant exposure to bacteria, the gingiva could get irritated and inflamed.
.
Nail biting is not the only thing that could be harmful to your teeth. Biting pens, pencils or other hard objects could have the same hazards to your teeth.
.
A few solutions to this lifestyle habit include keeping nails filed and trimmed, applying a bitter tasting polish to deter you from biting the nails, or a guard to decrease or prevent biting.

#tbt to our annual office summer hike/outting. Last year we hiked out to Lindeman Lake, floated around and took in the views of nature. We aim to balance our busy work lives with out of work activites like going to the gym, cycling, and hiking. What extra curricular activities do you enjoy in the summer that you would recommend? Please share!

Believe it or not, your lifestyle habits can not only have an impact on your overall health, but also your dental and oral health. What does this mean?
.
.
Are you someone with oral piercings? A smoker? Couch potatoe or gym rat? A nail biter? All of these can have a negative impact on your dental health.
.
Beginning with oral piercings today, the following weeks will include more info and detail regarding the other lifestyle habits. .
Oral piercings are any piercing(s) in or around the mouth, including tongue, lips, frenum that are either metal or plastic. .
. Listed below are some possible risks of having such pirecings.
.
- infection, especially new piercings due to the millions of bacteria in the mouth
. - chipped or cracked teeth if there's enough force from the piercing. Plastic piercings are a better choice, but nonetheless still has a risk to do damage
. - swelling from new piercings especially in the tongue has the potential to close off the airway making it difficult to breathe. .
- endocarditis, an inflammation of the heart valve or tissue due to the open wound of a fresh piercing has a possibility of allowing bacteria to enter the bloodstream and make its way to the heart.
.
. Piercings make look "cool," but take into consideration the possible health and dental risks associated with them.

Did you know there are two ways that dental professionals administer teeth whitening. 😬

The first system is custom made whitening trays. These trays are made to just fit only your mouth. Whitening gels are placed in the trays and you would wear them for 2 hours everyday for 2 weeks.
The second system is in office whitening. This method is quick and its instant. You spend 1-2 hours at the dental office and walk away with beautiful white teeth. .

Why do we care so much about baby teeth if it’s just gonna fall out ?

Baby teeth is very important to your kids development. It functions so your kids can chew, speak and smile. Baby teeth that are lost too early can cause adult teeth to drift into that spaces causing more problems for the future.
.
.
Please take care of your child’s teeth and bring him or her in for regular checkups 🤗

Wishing everyone an awesome long weekend! Don’t forget to brush those pearly whites after eating all those chocolates 🤪! The longer the sugar stays on the teeth, the easier it is for cavities to create a home!
