It’s that time of year again! Cooler evenings, falling leaves, pumpkin spice everything and back to school! While parents (and kids!) are secretly enjoying getting back into the regular routine, there is always one worry – what do we pack for lunch?
Do you love the idea of flossing and the health benefits that go with it but hate actually flossing? You are like many people! Not to worry, there are alternatives to string floss that have similar benefits and may be easier depending on the patient. Our team recently had a short seminar outlining the benefits of the Waterpik and we certainly learned some interesting facts!
If you are like many Canadians who use the computer in some way daily, you are almost sure to have seen an advertisement for a “smile club”. You may be curious about this alternative and how it compares to Invisalign – a company who has been providing clear aligner orthodontic treatment in conjunction with a qualified dentist.
We all know how important flossing is to not only your oral health, but your overall health. If you have forgotten, have a look right at our flossing blog! Even though we know we need to floss, our hygienists report the most common response to the question “How often are you flossing?” is “Not nearly enough!”
Contest Time! It is almost time to go Back to School! At Simcoe Family Dentistry (your favorite Barrie dentist!), we thought we would help you celebrate with a chance to win a $50 Gift Card for some back to school shopping! You have 3 chances for a ballot...
Bad breath is a common complaint that we hear in the dental office. Whether you feel that your breath is not as fresh as it could be, or worse yet, someone else has told you your breath is bad, there is often a solution for this embarrassing issue.
With the recent legalization of Cannabis in Canada we now have approximately 15% of the population over the age of 15 using these products. While it is portrayed as relaxing or a way to unwind or manage pain, it should also be noted that there are some serious health implications (oral health included!) that have been proven to be associated with use of Cannabis.
Do you love your smile? If not, what would you change? Our team has recently completed our Invisalign training to help improve not only your smile, but the overall health of your teeth and gums. Correcting the bite is so much more than straight teeth. Creating the smile you have always wanted could actually help you to keep your teeth healthier for life!
Dental x-rays are images of your teeth that allow the dentist to evaluate your health beyond what can be seen with the naked eye or felt by a dental examination. Dental x-rays are not only important in diagnosing cavities between the teeth and underneath existing fillings, but can also aid your dentist in identifying issues such as bone loss, sinus congestion, impacted (not erupted) teeth and even signs of a more serious problem such as cancer.
Dr Mikhail and the team at Simcoe Family Dentistry would love to welcome the Barrie Community to our 2nd Annual Community BBQ in support of the Barrie Food Bank on July 27th in our parking lot at 11 Ferris Lane! This free family event was such a great success last year that we thought we would do it again this year – but bigger and better!
