November 2018: Tips, eNews & More!

November is a busy time of the year. Right after a fun-filled Halloween, we are still nursing our candy hangovers while trying to get everything done before the holidays arrive.

This is the best time to prepare for the colder months so you can relax later. Make sure you take your winter clothes and boots out of storage, put snow tires on if you have them, remove the garden hose so your pipes don't freeze, and enjoy a steaming cup of hot chocolate or hot apple cider.

Colder weather also means increased teeth sensitivity when eating, drinking, or even just going outside in the cool weather. Tooth sensitivity can be caused by a broken or decaying tooth, or worn down enamel from grinding. If you have been experiencing tooth sensitivity, make sure to get in touch with us, so we can get to the root of the problem.


Many of you have dental benefits that renew in January and as the end of the year approaches, it may be time to see what services you or your family members may still need, that you were unable to fit into your busy schedule this year. Now is the time to maximize your dental benefits before they expire.

Dental benefits allow a certain dollar amount to be used towards your dental care annually. If you do not use your full benefit during the year, you will lose any remaining balance. Unused benefits do not "carry over" to the next year.

If you have any questions regarding what treatment needs you still may have and what benefits you have remaining, please give us a call at 905 883 0411 and one of our Team members will be happy to go through this with you.

Keep Smiling,

The Team at Hillcrest Dental Centre

Use of Cannabis and Your Oral Health


We have talked about smoking tobacco and its consequences on oral health. Now with the legalization of cannabis in Canada, let's discuss how its regular use affects your dental health.

Regular cannabis users usually have poorer oral health, which is evidenced by higher rates of tooth decay, missing teeth, inflamed gums, and cavities as compared to non-users.
