Can Cold and Flu Remedies Hurt My Teeth?

Cold and flu season is back in Kamloops. Earlier this year, I wrote about how these illnesses can directly impact your oral health. And thankfully, there are a number of remedies to help get you through those sleepless nights of coughing and long workdays with a stuffy head or runny nose. But did you know some of the solutions meant to help you through the cold and flu can actually damage your teeth? Read on to find out how to use these tools effectively while protecting your teeth.

Hospital Dentistry in Kamloops

I loved working as a hospital dentist in Calgary for the first year after I finished dental school. I gained some valuable experience working with clients who are very sick or have special needs. And I learned how to safely administer sedation as a tool to help make the dental experience less stressful for everyone. When I started working in private practice here in Kamloops, I found myself missing the opportunity to work in a hospital environment, and I didn’t even know it was an option here. But after a few years of hard work and red tape, I earned the privilege to work at Royal Inland Hospital and the Kamloops Surgical Centre so I could offer the best treatment options for my clients.

How Safe is Vaping?

It seems like there’s a new vaping retailer around every corner in Kamloops. Vapes, or e-cigarettes, have been around for many years, but it’s only recently that their popularity has grown into a multi-billion-dollar industry. They originated as a smoking cessation aid, but thanks to the addition of some pleasant flavors and clever marketing, vaping has become a fun way to pass the time. So why is vaping so popular and how safe is it for your health?

Piercings and Your Mouth

Body art, such as tattoos and piercings, is a very common method of self-expression. I firmly believe that each person has a right to decide what to do with his/her body, and I can definitely appreciate the esthetic and often emotional meaning behind these modifications. But studies have shown that lip and tongue rings often come with a much higher price than just the piercing itself. So please, read on about how to avoid these common oral complications.

How Important Can Flossing Really Be?

I used to ask myself this question each time I visited the dentist. I’ve been a very diligent brusher, but flossing was not an important part of my day, or even week. Good genetics and a balanced diet saved me from a mouth-full of cavities as a child. But now, I wonder how many of my patients ask themselves the same question. Of course, the choice to floss, or not to floss, is entirely up to you! But here’s a few reasons why you might want to give it another chance.
