Flossing – Why You Can’t Fool Your Dentist!

A previous Canadian Health Measures Survey found that just 28% of Canadians floss at least 5 times a week. What about the other 72%? A good guess is that they're the ones who floss twice a year, right before their semi-annual dental checkups.

Sugar Gets Its Lumps!

Exactly how does sugar damage your teeth? Since ‘tis the season for Christmas baking and all things candy related you might want to know what you're getting into, teeth-wise, before you pop that frosted sugar cookie or Black Magic truffle in your mouth.

Actually, back in the "olden days" people did whiten their teeth, they used natural ingredients like charcoal, baking soda and salt to clean and whiten their teeth. And just like the invention of cell phones and computers, technology has made huge improvements in how we can whiten our teeth these days.
