When the warmer weather returns, it’s often time for many home owners to “spring clean” their house – get to all the chores we’ve been ignoring over the winter, and make our homes as fresh and clean as possible. But have you ever thought about doing the same with your dental care?
Here are some tips to freshen up your dental hygiene and give your teeth a spring clean:
Replace Your Toothbrush:
While you should replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months, many people don’t. Spring is the perfect time to throw out that old, used toothbrush and pick up a brand new one. Remember, soft bristles are your best bet for a fresh, clean mouth.
Start Flossing Regularly (If You Aren’t Already):
Are you one of those people that only floss right before a dental check-up? (Yes, we’re on to you!) Keep your gums healthy by start the flossing habit now – once it’s a regular part of your hygiene routine, you’ll wonder why you avoided it in the first place! Your mouth will be much better for it.
Cut Down On Teeth-Staining Foods & Drinks:
With the warmer season upon us, it’s easy to replace some teeth-staining items with their non-staining replacements. Switch your red wine for white and change that coffee for a refreshing green tea. And if brightening your teeth is a part of your “spring clean”, visit us for teeth whitening.

Dental-X was recently featured in OH Canada! (Oral Health Canada) Magazine, with our CEO Anaida Deti discussing a charity initiative we are involved in called Gift From The Heart.
Last year, independent dental hygienists across Canada opened their clinics to provide oral health care services at no cost to those who need those most.
For this event, we had three dental hygienists on site and a dentist working from 8:30am to 5:30pm. Dr. Kamalbake performed dental check-ups as well as emergency dental procedures. We had a tooth fairy, who entertained children while promoting proper dental care and educating everyone on the link between oral health and overall health.
Everyone in Canada deserves access to proper oral health care, but unfortunately many are not financially capable of accessing such services. By joining in the Gift from the Heart campaign, we hope to reduce the number of those in need of dental care.
We were glad to be able to participate in this wonderful event, and so we’re happy to announce that we will be taking part this coming year as well – February 7, 2015!
Please share the word, and help those in need receive free dental care this February.

Everyone knows that it’s important to visit your dentist/dental hygienist for check-ups regularly. But have you ever stopped and wondered why? While it’s true that regular brushing and flossing go a long way toward optimal dental health, there are very good reasons for your regular check-ups. (more…)

April is Oral Health Month, and we thought we should share a few important tips to keep your mouth as healthy as possible. While these may seem common, you’d be surprised how many people skip one or more of these vital steps. When used together, they help you to achieve optimal oral health.
Important steps to good oral health:
Brush your teeth twice daily
Eat healthy foods
Check your mouth regularly
Avoid tobacco products
See your dental professional regularly
And in the spirit of Oral Health month, we are working with the York Region Anti-Bullying Coalition for our “Give Back A Smile” event – we’ll be offering free dental services for children whose parents are unable to afford the dental care they require.
