Transitioning to Dentures

Are you missing some of your natural teeth? Do you feel as though you may require extractions sooner rather than later? When going from natural teeth to a denture, the transition doesn’t have to be difficult. We provide options for optimal healing, improved esthetics, and ideal function. A denture can be fabricated prior to extractions and placed in your mouth immediately following the removal of your teeth. This is a very popular option for patients as it means you don’t need to go without teeth at any point. Some patients prefer to let their gums heal prior to their dentures being made. Ask your denturist! Your new smile is only a few steps away.

Energize Your Body with PEMF Therapy

PEMF therapy, or Pulsed Electromagnetic Field therapy, is gaining recognition for its potential health benefits. By delivering electromagnetic pulses to the body, it helps improve circulation, reduces inflammation, and promotes healing. Studies suggest it alleviates pain from conditions like arthritis and fibromyalgia. Furthermore, PEMF therapy may aid in enhancing muscle recovery after exercise and improving sleep quality. Its non-invasive nature makes it appealing for those seeking alternative treatments. Many individuals experience pain relief and improved well-being with regular sessions. Consider exploring PEMF therapy as part of your wellness routine.

Wildfire Smoke Health Risks

Wildfire smoke, a blend of PM2.5 and gases like carbon monoxide, poses severe health risks in Western Canada. It obstructs oxygen intake, irritates the respiratory system, and triggers inflammation, manifesting in eye irritation, coughing, or headaches. While most symptoms are manageable, severe cases require medical attention, especially if experiencing breathlessness or chest pain. Smoke exposure heightens infection risks, including COVID-19 and ear infections in children. Minimizing exposure is crucial. HEPA air filters and sealed environments help indoors. While driving, maintain closed windows and recirculated air. During smoky periods, reduce exertion, exercise indoors, and stay hydrated. Prioritize health amidst wildfires. Source: ( use code 1.

Surprising Sleep Tips

According to the Canadian Government, one-quarter of adults report problems with falling or staying asleep, most, or all of the time. Here are some surprising tips to improve your sleep. #1- Close your eyes and roll them backward. Rolling your eyes causes your brain to release melatonin, a natural sleep hormone. #2- Breathe through your nose, not your mouth. Breathing through the mouth can have a stress effect on the brain. Breathing through the nose sends relaxation signals to your brain. #3- Tell yourself “I’m not going to sleep”. Reverse psychology works better than you think. Give these tips a try tonight to help you get to sleep faster and stay asleep longer.

Connections Matter on Father’s Day

Father’s Day offers a poignant reminder of the vital role mental health plays in the lives of our aging parents. For seniors residing in independent living homes, the benefits extend beyond physical care. These communities foster crucial social interactions that can stave off the loneliness and depression often faced by those living alone. Friendships formed in these environments provide emotional support, joy, and a sense of belonging. Celebrating Father’s Day in such a setting underscores the importance of a strong support network. By prioritizing companionship and mental well-being, we honor our fathers not just with gifts, but with the invaluable gift of connection.

Preventing Lyme Disease

There are several kinds of ticks crawling around Manitoba, including the Deer Tick which is responsible for transmitting Lyme Disease. Avoiding tick bites is the best way to prevent this. Here’s how you can keep yourself bite-free when spending time outdoors: 1) Wear closed-toe shoes, long sleeves, and pants. 2) Walk on pathways, staying clear of heavily wooded areas. 3) Use bug spray with DEET or picaridin. 4) After being outside, check yourself, children, gear, and pets for ticks, bathe, and put all clothes worn outdoors into a dryer for 10-20 minutes. If you find an embedded tick, gently remove it using tweezers by pulling close to the skin, avoiding squeezing the tick.
