7 Exercises for Better Oral Health with NO Gym Membership


Abbotsford Dentist Clayburn Dental

Abbotsford Dentist Blog

“7 Exercises for Better Oral Health with NO Gym Membership”

Think about it… Are you fitting in enough exercise to maintain optimal overall health? And what effect does it have on your oral health?

A significant focus of patient education at our Abbotsford dental practice is ensuring that patients understand the strong links between their overall health and oral health. Of course, this is not an age-specific or gender-specific issue, but today we’d like to take a moment to consider women in particular. Staying fit can go a long way to avoiding obesity, diabetes, osteoporosis, and other health issues that can contribute to or complicate oral health.

We’re all inundated with reports about the dangers of obesity, and women are particularly vulnerable to social pressures about their weight. According to one study, over one-third of adult weight-loss-pill users were not obese and another third of those surveyed used non-prescription diet products. This is cause for concern because diet pills can create the discomfort of decreased salivary flow, or dry mouth, especially in mature patients, increasing the risk for cavities, gum disease, and oral candidiasis.

A balanced diet and working out make more sense, but statistics on women’s fitness patterns are disheartening. According to experts, more than 60% of North American women do not get enough exercise and according to research from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill fewer than 1 in 4 pregnant women do.

Lack of time is cited as the biggest barrier so maybe the heart of the matter is fighting the trend by creating a routine that you can live with. Here are SEVEN simple ways we’ve read about that work your workout into your workday without too much effort:

  1. Jump rope in your office for five minutes.
  2. Take the stairs instead of the elevator.
  3. Ride your bicycle for short distances instead of driving your car.
  4. If you do drive, park your car at least a quarter mile from your destination and walk.
  5. Or, walk over to a colleague’s desk to talk about work, rather than sending an email.
  6. 30 minutes of gardening, pushing a stroller 1.5 miles in thirty minutes, and raking leaves for thirty minutes.
  7. If you like to watch TV, forgo a half-hour show and get outside for a walk. Or if it’s a show you love, watch while you’re exercising. 

We understand completely that it’s hard to fit in time to get fit when your schedule is already packed between the morning alarm and crawling back into bed at night. Especially after a day that keeps you on the run mentally … but not physically.

Still, we hope you can see that you don’t always have to join a gym. There is room to be creative and include a little physical workout without making any big changes to your schedule. And, of course, keeping time in your schedule to maintain your oral health will contribute to keeping you healthy. To help with that we offer early and late appointments and are now open Sundays.

To your good oral health!

The Difference Provided By Our Abbotsford Dentists

Teeth flossing also helps kids keep their dental health in its prime.

Teeth flossing also helps kids keep their dental health in its prime.

Many parents wonder what’s the difference between a general and a pediatric dentist. To them the difference seems slim to none but in reality, parents miss out on a few factors that contribute to substantiate the fact that pediatric dentists are better prepared to take care of children.

The first thing that a parent must understand is that pediatric Abbotsford dentists put a bigger preparation towards receiving their child. It’s not done the way that general dentists do in which they just make a child sit on a general adult sized dentist chair and treat them. No, pediatric dentists think on all aspects a child must face in all phases of a dental treatment.

It’s this prior preparation to provide a basic but yet very needed service such as a pediatric dentist service that shapes the whole context for a successful pediatric dentist treatment. And taking this into perspective allows parents to be able to commit to take their child/children to a first visit and further on to engage in long term dental treatment goals for their kids.

So as a parent knowing that Abbotsford dentists are well prepared to care for your child’s dental health is a primary incentive for you to bring your kid in for a first assessment to know the state of dental health your child is in.Then a plan can be laid out in proper phases depending on your child’s age and how many teeth they have in their mouth. These phases comprise the implementation of teeth caring techniques to preserve a prime dental health state, to allow the proper natural fallout of milk teeth, the growth of natural permanent teeth and later on the implementation of braces to correct teeth growth deviations.

But that’s not all since Abbotsford dentists also provide general dentist services for you. While your child is being cared for, you can also care for you teeth and general dental health. Just appoint your child’s consultation and yours at the same time. Then both of you can go home and that’s the same as killing two rabbits with one stone.

In the general dentist services parents get to check their gum’s health, prevent cavities, tooth decay, boost their teeth enamel against pathogens with natural products. They can also make more intensive treatments such as surgery with wisdom tooth removal and more complex procedures. Dentists are trained in order to receive parents to treat their diverse dental problems.

Abbotsford dentists are also capable of bringing a quick response to your treatment. All it takes is just one call for you to get your appointment settled. From there on you can quickly get your situation explained by a dentist which is responsible and well trained with all types of dental issues. You can also engage in preventive measures in order to avoid more expensive costs in future corrective dental treatments. Many of our patients have been able to do that by starting to treat their teeth early on and engage in preventive measures. Get in touch with us today to start treating your teeth and that of your children.

Eating Nutritious Food is as Important as Not Eating Junk

Eating Nutritious FoodEating more nutritious food is probably just as important as staying away from sticky, sugary, cavity-causing foods. Carrots, just one example of foods that give your oral health a boost, can act like a toothbrush by scraping away some of the bacteria and plaque on teeth. High in beta-carotene, carrots may also lower your risk of oral cancer. (There is also evidence that beta-carotene may even help people who already have some forms of oral cancer.) In one study, just 30mg of beta-carotene a day (about 2½ carrots) produced improvement in up to 70% of cases of people with leukoplakia, the white lesions in the mouth that can mark the early stages of oral cancer.

Remember Your Checkup

We remember all of those important dates like birthdays and anniversaries, changing oil in the car, hair appointments, and paying taxes. But one of our most important annual events, our dental recare visit, is often forgotten, postponed, or cancelled! While you might think, “It’s just a checkup,” your recare appointment helps to monitor and maintain your good health.

Something as simple as the early detection of a cavity will save you money down the road, but the benefits do not stop there. Beyond brightening your smile and removal of dental tartar with a thorough cleaning, we evaluate the health of your gums (which has been linked to diabetes, stroke, premature birth, heart disease, and cancer) and screen for serious threats like oral cancer. Keeping tabs on your oral health is as important as your annual physical. Please check your calendar for your next appointment, and if you haven’t got one booked – call us today!
