Halloween Candy Buyback 2017

Halloween Candy Buy Back Program

Clayburn Dental is excited to announce the return of our popular Halloween Candy Buy Back program!

From November 1 to 3, your kids can bring in their Halloween candy haul to our dental clinic in Abbotsford and we will buy their candy back at $2 per pound (up to a max of $20)! All of the candy collected will be donated to the Abbotsford Salvation Army.

The Halloween Candy Buy Back is a great way for your little ones to get rid of their extra Halloween candy for a good cause. Plus, earning a few dollars is always a special feeling!

November 1 to November 3
$2 per pound of candy donated
400 – 3033 Immel St Abbotsford, BC V2S 6S2

Why Participate?

Now in our fourth year, the goal of our Candy Buy Back event is not to stop children from enjoying a little candy, but to encourage moderation. Your support shows your family the importance of dental hygiene and the great feeling of helping others.

All of the candy that we collect goes to the Abbotsford Salvation Army as they have a need for it for their parades and other events. It generally takes them a year to redistribute the candy through their various avenues.

Thank you for your interest in our Halloween Candy Buyback program and your thoughtfulness in providing the candy!

Calcium and Your Oral Health

The Benefits of Calcium for Your TeethThere’s a recurring news story about calcium supplements that a number of patients have found worrisome and confusing. It’s worth touching on and it reminded me that really, it’s an opportunity to talk to you about calcium’s importance to overall and oral health.

First the worrisome story. In August 2010 The British Medical Journal published a review of studies about women at risk for fractures and loss of bone density. Surprisingly, they discovered that women taking calcium supplements had a modest increased risk of heart attacks and no benefit from the supplements. Their recommendation seems reasonable: a reassessment of the role of calcium supplements in osteoporosis management.

Yet if you are over 60, your physician may recommend a calcium intake of 1,000-1,200 mg per day. If you have any concerns about the relative benefits of starting or continuing with supplements, I encourage you to discuss them with your physician. Their value to you depends on your individual health status as well as your diet.

Any balanced diet isn’t complete without calcium, the main nutritional mineral needed for building strong teeth and bones, which contain 99% of the body’s supply. However, the remaining 1% circulates in the blood to aid heart function, blood clotting, the conduction of nerve impulses, and muscle contraction.

If the level of calcium does not remain constant and adequate, your body can pull calcium from your bones which, over time, will lead to osteoporosis which can result in broken bones. Inadequate calcium intake has also been linked to health issues such as hypertension and toxemia in pregnancy, which is characterized by high blood pressure.

In general, experts believe that North Americans, particularly adults, do not consume enough calcium each day. But how much calcium do you need for a lifetime of healthy teeth and bones?

The most effective amount for adults is from 800-1,200 mg of calcium a day combined with a good exercise program. Remember vitamin D3 for helping your body absorb calcium.

Calcium is especially important for growing children. We recommend 500-700 mg a day of calcium for children depending on their age and significantly more for teenagers and expectant or nursing mothers.

Many things we eat and drink have calcium in them, with dairy products usually being your best source. Adults can get their recommended daily amount by drinking 3-4 glasses of milk or an equivalent measure of yogurt or cheese (1½ ounces of cheese equals an eight-ounce glass of milk). You can add milk to soups, sauces, and desserts. Coffee cream, artificial creamer, and whipped topping as well as cream cheese, sour cream, and whipping cream, contain little or no calcium, but you can replace sour cream or cream cheese with fat-free yogurt or low-fat cottage cheese mixed with 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar.

If you can’t tolerate dairy, then fortified alternatives made from almonds, soy, or rice are an option, as well as fresh vegetables such as spinach, broccoli and collard greens, and canned seafood like sardines and salmon. Nuts like almonds are also high in calcium.

Regardless of your age, calcium provides many benefits for your oral and overall health. If you’re not sure you’re getting enough dietary calcium, please ask your physician or our dental team, to suggest ways to achieve the calcium intake that’s right for you.

FREE Oral Cancer Screenings as Heard on Country 107.1

Clayburn Dental will be offering no charge oral cancer screenings April 28th from NOON to 3pm.

Clayburn Dental will be offering no charge oral cancer screenings April 28th from NOON to 3pm.

In honour of Oral Health Month Clayburn Dental is offering Complimentary Oral Cancer Screenings on Sunday April 28th, 2013 from NOON to 3pm.

Listen to the latest advertisement describing the FREE Oral Cancer Screenings at Clayburn Dental.  As heard on Abbotsford, BC radio station Country 107.1

A 3 minute screening could save your life. This year in the US 42,000 people will be diagnosed with oral cancer. That’s one person every hour of every day, and over 100 new individuals will be diagnosed with it each day. The good news is that it can often be found early in its development, through a simple, painless, and quick screening using the Velscope Oral Cancer Screening System.

Please take a moment to join us April 28th between NOON and 3pm.
