Ten Reasons to Love Dental Implants An implant has the same strong chewing force as that of a natural tooth The strength of chewing with a denture accounts for only 1/20 of natural teeth. In contrast, the implant has the same strength of chewing as a natural tooth. Therefore, with an implant, you can chew hard food well.

01

Economical and durable Implants can be used for as long as 10 – 30 years depending on the care.

02

Relief from the discomfort of wearing dentures

Feels and looks like a natural tooth

Protection of adjacent teeth

Implants have excellent esthetic function, since they look and feel like natural teeth.

With a bridge, your healthy adjacent teeth will be affected. An implant is placed only in the gap where the lost tooth was located; however, adjacent teeth are not damaged.

You can be relieved from the periodontal pain, discomfort, and bad breath that are related to wearing dentures.

As comfortable as a natural tooth

No chance of a cavity

Maintenance of healthy jawbone

Implants are permanent, since they are attached to the alveolar bone like a natural tooth.

There is no chance of the implant developing cavities because it is an artificial tooth.

If you wear dentures for a long time, your jawbone can deteriorate. In contrast, implant placement makes the bone strong and prevents it from being absorbed by the body.

03

Chewing remains an enjoyable experience

06

04 07

05 08

Increased stability in the full denture

With an implant, you can feel the temperature and texture of foods.

09

In the case of a full denture, it can be fixed firmly after the implant is placed; hence the absence of movement in the mouth.

What comes to mind when you think of Thanksgiving? New settlers? The Mayflower? Not likely. You are more apt to reminisce ab out the steaming hot turkey dinner that you had inhaled last year. “This Thanksgiving,” you say, “It will be different”. You will not over eat. After all you can still enjoy a taste of each dish without gorging yourself, or can you?

905-503-4100 LL100–520 Industrial Pkwy. S., Aurora (at Yonge St.)

The answer is you certainly can if you commit. How do you do that? Just like with anything else you undertake, make a plan. Before you even think about sitting down to the annual feast, take a look at all of your meals for the day. If you know you won’t b e ab le to say ‘no’ to Aunt Dorothy’s famous pumpkin pie, then you may not want to sip that foamy latte in the afternoon. Plan out what you are going to eat for the meals preceding the turkey dinner. The object is not to starve yourself so you can mow down later. Make better choices and eat lighter meals throughout the day.

Don’t eat too quickly and leave some time before you decide if you need another plate full or a second b utter tart. Enjoy the conversation at the dinner table or get up and walk around to distract yourself from diving into more food. Most social gatherings end up in the kitchen or around the b uffet tab le. Once you fill your plate, try moving to another location away from the food. You will b e less likely to continually add to your plate if you remove yourself from the temptation. Raise a glass in celeb ration, b ut try to keep it to just one. Don’t forget the calories in many alcoholic beverages. It’s very easy to forget to include what’s in your glass in your overall calorie count. Have a glass of wine with dinner, but savour it. Cocktails are a great holiday treat, b ut they also come with many calories. Remember that punch is not as harmless as it seems. Try to avoid over indulging in the festive beverages.

The most important point to rememb er, don’t feel guilty. The holiday only comes once a year. You can still enjoy all of the holiday favourites in moderation.

Garden Hibernation It’s just a matter of time before the cold winter winds blow through your well-pruned gardens. You’ve just spent all summer taking good care of your plants, now it’s time to put your prized gardens to b ed for the winter. Annual plants seem to b e the b est place to start. Consider saving some of your annual fl wers and any herbs that you would like to replant in the spring. Your favourites can be transplanted into pots and taken indoors. Geraniums do well in a spot near a window during the winter. Once the warmer weather returns, you will have a lovely basket all ready for the deck. After pulling out all of the annual plants, it’s time to take a look at the condition of your perennials. Plants that are grown from bulbs can be saved. Dig up any delicate bulbs including Dahlias and Lilies. These bulbs can be successfully stored inside during the winter months and replanted in the spring. If you wish to leave the bulbs, trim back any greenery and make sure that the bulbs are buried deeply enough in the ground. Overgrown perennials can be divided and separated into clumps. This is your chance to redesign the look of your garden. Divided perennials can be relocated to fill in empty spaces. Trim leaves and growth from other perennials including Hostas and other fl wering plants. Some plants may not need to be trimmed, they continue to look good through the colder months. Ornamental grasses hold their form and can add texture to a snow-covered garden. 

Visit your local Nursery to stock up on mulch and burlap to help protect some of your plants and trees. After you have weeded your garden, spread a generous layer of winter mulch to help protect your plants against the bitter cold. During the winter the soil can freeze and thaw and refreeze repeatedly. The constant expanding and contracting can lead to root damage. Mulch helps maintain a more constant soil temperature. Rose b ushes can b e delicate and need protection in the colder weather. Mound the dirt around the b ase of the b ush and add a healthy amount of mulch to help protect the plant. Be sure to cut back any overly long branches. They can become brittle in the really cold weather and can snap in a brisk wind. Wrap tree trunks and b ushes with b urlap to protect the plants from harsh winter winds and colder temperatures. Burlap around the b ase of tree trunks can help keep de-icing sub stances including salt from damaging the tree. Some bushes experience sun scalding during the bitter cold and sunny days. Covering the plants with b urlap will help protect your b ushes from the frigid temperatures and the harsh sun. If you have issues with rodents, consider wrapping the b ase of any victimized trees with mesh. It will save the trunk from any hungry pests.

Halloween Sugar Monsters Halloween is every kid’s dream and most parents’ nightmare. It’s the one night a year that kids can solicit for candy. What’s more, it is the one night a year that parents struggle to contain the sugar rush in their homes. Assuming that their little super heroes and princesses haven’t spent the entire walk indulging in their growing treat b ags, parents have a fighting chance to control just how many goodies their goblins eat.  It is better to be safe than sorry. Before heading out for an evening of trick or treating, make sure the kids understand that they shouldn’t eat anything until it has b een checked. While the majority of the candy is likely safe for consumption, it’s really important that the trick or treaters share their stash with Mom or Dad before they dive in.  While taking inventory of the goodies, make a few piles. One pile is for the questionable candy, and another is for the treats your child doesn’t like. Then take stock of what is left. It is likely more sugar than you would ever allow your child to eat. Remember that most of the fun of Halloween is gathering the candy. Most kids will never finish what is in their b ags. Divide the ‘keeping’ candy into two piles; one pile for your child and the other to donate. Ask your child to help decide

P O D I AT R I S T/ F O O T S P E C I A L I S T

which piece goes into his/her pile and ask them to put a piece in the donation pile. There are agencies around the GTA that will accept candy. Food banks and other organizations would gladly share your child’s donation. Take your child with you when you go to drop off your goodies. What do you do with all of the candy in the ‘keeping’ pile? Recent studies have said that children should not consume more than 25 grams of sugar a day. That works out to be about 5 teaspoons. Add in all of the foods that kids eat that are not considered treats and there is not a lot of room for extra sugar. The average mini chocolate bar is about 6 grams or 1.2 teaspoons of sugar. The average piece of Halloween candy can reach as much as 11 grams of sugar or 2.2 teaspoons. It may seem harmless for your child to have a sweet tooth at a young age, b ut in reality, those sweet cravings are setting him/her up for health issues later in life including ob esity, high blood pressure and dental issues. Store any candy in a bag in a cupboard that is out of reach of your child. You may also want to skip the see-through locking bags and choose something that will hide the stash. The old b elief that if something is out of sight it is also out of mind may assist you in your battle to curb a sweet tooth.

Imagine your home, totally organized!

Cottage Securit Any cottage owner knows that a second property b rings with it a second set of responsib ilities. You have twice as many b ills. That is, one set of b ills for home and the other for your summer home. You also have twice as many worries. You have the upkeep and maintenance of b oth properties. What’s more, you also have to think ab out the security of both locations. Police in cottage country can tell you that insecure summer properties b ecome targets for those looking for an easy break-in during the winter months. After all, most cottages are not winterized and there are very few people around the properties during the colder months. There have even b een cases of squatters living on the premises while the cottage owners are not there. What can you do to secure your cottage for the times you are not ab le to visit? Out of sight, out of mind. Don’t leave any windows uncovered. There shouldn’t be any opportunity for someone to window shop to see what you have that they could steal. Try boarding up any windows or doors to remove the chance that spying eyes will see what you have left behind for the winter. It’s always b etter to remove what would b e a draw to your cottage. Take home any valuab les. That includes television sets, b lu-ray players, stereo systems and other electronics.

They are more secure at home in storage than they are on display at the cottage. Lock away any water toys and b oats. Better yet, most marinas have storage areas for b oats. Investigate the cost involved with storing your boat in a location that is monitored and secure. Neighb ourhood watches are very b eneficial to cottage owners. If there are any cottagers who are visiting over the winter, ask that they check in on your property and report back about anything suspicious. If your cottage is not hours away, spend a b eautiful winter day visiting your summer home.

Security systems are a great way to monitor activity around any home whether it is your main residence or your summer home. There are many kinds of security systems that will protect your residences. In fact, a cottage with a security system is three times less likely to b e b roken into than one without. Make sure you advertise that your cottage is covered by a security system. Ask the security company for signs and decals. They will help act as a deterrent. Depending upon the type of security system you get, there are some that can be monitored by a smart phone. Some systems will notify you if any door or window has been opened. You can also arm or disarm the alarm from wherever you are. You can even control lights and the thermostat. For those who want a more advanced system, there are video monitoring security systems that can also be monitored by smartphones.

Fore Couples It is very easy for couples to get caught up in the daily stresses of life. Kids, job s and extended family can dictate what couples do in their spare time. If you and your other half find that the only ‘quality’ time you have together is falling asleep in front of the TV then it may be time for a change. What about Golf? Some say that golf is a game that ruins a nice walk, while many others will argue that puttering around a green on a beautiful sunny day is the best way to relax. If you and your spouse are looking for a nice walk and some outdoor exercise, why not consider a round or two. For the calorie-minded couple, 18-holes of golf – without the golf cart – can burn more than 900 calories. The average golf course is about 6500 yards or almost 6 kilometres. It’s a walk with a twist. The game combines the benefits of walking with toning exercises. While you are sharing some quality time with your significan other, you are also getting a workout. Golf is not a restrictive sport. You are never too old or too young to play. What’s more, there is no age restriction on when you can take up the game. Now, there are some readers that are shaking their heads. Diehard

golfers may say that they could never, ever golf with their spouses because they are not on the same level. Maybe your partner doesn’t golf or doesn’t golf often, but that shouldn’t stop you from sharing a round. The truth is that golf brings all levels of abilities together. You don’t need to be Jordan Spieth or Brooke Henderson to enjoy a little competition on the 16th hole. In fact, only 30 percent of golfers actually break 100. Anyone can take a swing at a game of golf.   If you are heading out on the green with your special someone, remember his/her skill level. A little friendly competition between partners can b e a lot of fun. What is not fun is an impatient competitor with a lot of ‘tips’. If you are the stronger golfer, try to keep your advice to a minimum. Just rememb er all of the times you have spent in the sand traps or in the rough. A few well-placed gentle tips can be helpful and inspiring.   For those who golf occasionally and are hoping to spend more time on the links, check out your local course for the programs they offer. Many courses have couples golf lessons. You and your spouse can learn the sport together. For those who just want to play, there are courses that have golf leagues for couples. You and your partner can spend a couple evenings a month enjoying a round of golf together. You will also get to spend time with other couples that enjoy an evening of golf.

Which Of These Neuropathy Symptoms Do You Suffer From? If You Suffer From A Single One Of These Torturous Symptoms – Numbness, Tingling, Or Sharp Nerve Pain – THEN THE FACTS BELOW MAY BE THE MOST IMPORTANT YOU HAVE EVER READ IN YOUR LIFE! Neuropathy affects every part of your life -walking, sitting, and even sleeping. Maybe you’ve had multiple tests, only to find out no one has any idea what you have. Maybe you’ve even been put on a drug with heavy side effects.

Do you have any of the following symptoms... • • • • •

Pins and needles feeling Numbness in the hands or feet Tingling or burning sensations Weakness in the arms or legs Sharp shooting or burning pains

If so you may have a condition called peripheral neuropathy. My name is Dr. Joshua Nikkanen, clinic director at Crossroads Chiropractic. I’ve been helping people with neuropathy and nerve problems for more than 14 years. More than a million Canadians suffer from peripheral neuropathy, a problem caused by damage to the nerves that supply your arms and legs. This painful condition interferes with your body’s ability to transmit messages to your muscles, skin, joints, or internal organs. If ignored or mistreated, neuropathy can lead to irreversible health conditions.

“Manipulation [chiropractic adjustments], with or without exercise, improved symptoms more than medical care did after both 3 and 12 months.”– British Medical Journal Patients showed an 85.5% resolution of the nerve symptoms after only 9 chiropractic treatments. Journal of Chiropractic Medicine 2008 With chiropractic care, patients had “significant improvement in perceived comfort and function, nerve conduction and finger sensation overall.” – JMPT 1998 “Significant increase in grip strength and normalization of motor and sensory latencies were noted. Orthopedic tests were negative. Symptoms dissipated.” – JMPT 1994 What these studies mean is that with chiropractic care, you could soon be enjoying life...without those aggravating nerve problems.

How To Find Out If ThisWill Work For You It’s time for you to find out if chiropractic will be your neuropathy solution. For 14 days only, $35 will get you all the services I normally charge new patients $220 for! What does this offer include? Everything. Take a look at what you will receive: •

An in-depth consultation about your health and well-being where I will listen…really listen…to the details of your case.

A complete neuromuscular examination.

A full set of specialized x-rays to determine if a spinal problem is contributing to your pain or symptoms… (NOTE: These would normally cost you at least $100).

Why not get help by those trained to correct the major cause of peripheral neuropathy? Data from the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners’ Job Analysis of Chiropractic lists arm and leg neuropathy as the second most common nerve problem treated by chiropractors. Often neuropathy is caused by a degenerating spine pressing on the nerve roots. This can happen in any of the vertebral joints from the neck all the way down to the tail bone.

The Single Most Important Solution To Your Neuropathy By using gentle techniques, I’m able to release the pressure that has built up on the nerve. This allows the nerve to heal and the symptoms to go away.Numerous studies have proven chiropractic’s effectiveness in helping nerve conditions...

A thorough analysis of your exam and x-ray findings so we can start mapping out your plan to being pain-free. You’ll get to see everything firsthand and find out if this amazing treatment will be your pain solution, like it has been for so many other patients.

Don’t let neuropathy hold you back form enjoying life. The appointment will not take long at all. And you won’t be sitting in a waiting room all day either.

Here’s What To Do Now The offer is only good until October 28. Call today 905-830-1146 and we can get you scheduled for your consultation, exam and x-rays as soon as there’s an opening. Our office is located on Eagle Street, just east of Yonge, just a few minutes from you. When you call, tell the receptionist you’d like to come in for the Neuropathy Evaluation so she can get you on the schedule and make sure you receive proper credit for this special offer. Sincerely, Joshua Nikkanen, D.C. P.S. At our office, we have specialized treatment programs for treating patients who suffer from neuropathy. Why suffer with years of misery? That’s no way to live, not when there could be an easy solution to your problem. Don’t live in pain when we may have the solution you’ve been looking for all along. Call today...905-830-1146

This Month IN HISTORY Canadian Art History Canadian artists are as diverse as the country itself. Canada’s landscape has been an inspiration for many artists. There have been several painters in history who have created their own views of the amazing landscape. Cornelius Krieghoff was b orn in Amsterdam, Holland in 1815, b ut he later lived in Canada where he did much of his painting. Kreighoff sailed to New York in 1837 and enlisted as a volunteer in the American Army. He was discharged in 1840. Shortly after he met his future wife Louise Gauthier and they moved to Toronto. Kreighoff earned his living as a professional painter and his landscape works were exhib ited at the Toronto Society of Artists in 1847. In 1851, things changed for the painter. He made contact with an auctioneer who purchased some of his paintings. It was the beginning of a decade of prosperity for the artist. Today, many of his works can be seen at the Art Gallery of Ontario. One of his most famous works is The Habitant Farm. There are many Canadian artists that have captured the diverse Canadian landscape. Lawren Stewart Harris’ works were quite different than those of Cornelius Kreighoff. Harris has inspired many other painters with his depictions of the northern Canadian landscape. Harris travelled to Germany in 1904 where he spent three years studying. Among his studies was Theosophy, a type of religious philosophy that would later influen e his paintings.

Harris came from a wealthy family and was able to concentrate on his artwork. He joined the Arts and Letters Club in Toronto where he met other artists with similar interests. In 1920, Harris joined J.E.H. MacDonald, Frank Johnston, Franklin Carmichael, A.Y. Jackson, F.H. Varley and Arthur Lismer. The group became known as the Group of Seven. Together this group of talented artists created a new depiction of the Canadian landscape. One of Harris’ most impressive works was North Shore, Lake Superior painted in 1926. The painting can be seen today at the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. The Group of Seven received their inspiration from another wellknown Canadian landscape artist, Tom Thomson. Thomson was associated with the group, but was never a member. Thomson was known for painting many of his works from memory. He would sketch in the spring or summer in Algonquin Park and would paint in Toronto in the winter. One of his more famous paintings, Northern River hangs proudly in the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. W.J. Hopkinson was probably York Region’s most well known artist during his lifetime (1887-1970). He created hundreds of paintings of the area. He was a strong advocate for supporting the arts and creating an arts centre. He was also founder of the Newmarket Arts Club . The web site, wjhopkinson.ca, features photos of W.J. Hopkinson paintings that have never b een displayed pub licly, and others that haven’t been seen for decades.

Bring Fall Indoors There are some people who will argue that Fall is b y far the b est season of the year. It could b e b ecause it is one of the most picturesque seasons. The leaves change colour and the foliage follows suit. It is a shame that all of that beauty should b e reserved for the outdoors. It doesn’t have to b e. Why not consider bringing the charm of Fall indoors?

Wreaths are not just for Christmas. Grapevine wreaths adorned with small gourds and fall leaves can be a wonderful way to welcome guests into your home. Try using white gourds with light coloured cornhusks for an eye-catching display. Consider hanging your wreath on a wall inside your home rather than the front door.

There are many ways to add a touch of Autumn to your home’s décor.

When you are out for a nice Fall hike, keep your eyes peeled for any fallen b ranches that may make an interesting showpiece for a table. White birch branches are great to bind together to create a natural tab le centerpiece. Add leaves and pinecones to the b unch to make a ‘forest-like’ display. Loose b ranches can be added to a vase to create a rustic look. A tall vase filled with outdoor stones is a great base for a bouquet of branches.

Use your gourd. What do you think of when you picture a garden in the Fall? Chances are you will picture pumpkins and squash. What about the non-edible gourds? Most garden centres or farmer’s markets sell the smaller non-edible gourds that are wonderful additions to any Fall décor. These pint-sized fruits work well with a few freshly picked colourful leaves on a coffee table or a dining room table. Pinecones can also be a lovely addition to any centerpiece design. Pumpkins make great containers. Hollow out a medium sized pumpkin and add a potted plant to the middle. Choose a plant that is popular for the season like mums, kale, zinnias and even pansies. Black-eyed Susans, Golden Sage and various ornamentals grasses are also great choices for any planters. If you want to be more creative, choose smaller pumpkins and add candles to create a festive way to light the dinner table.

If you are an allergy sufferer then you may not want too much vegetation in your home. For those who are allergy-free, hay b ales and corn stalks are wonderful signs of fall that can b e incorporated into your home décor. Tie off tall corn stalks to a pillar or post in your home. Use a large old aluminum watering can to act as a vase for the stalks. There are many ways to b ring the sights and smells of autumn into your living space. If you have someone in your home that suffers from allergies, leave the hay displayed on the front porch as a seasonal way to welcome visitors.

Senior BEAT Renovating to Stay at Home If you asked most seniors if they would rather live in their own homes or move to an assisted living centre, ab out half of them would say they would rather stay home. Aging can mean that current living conditions at home are challenging. It can b e tricky for anyone who is experiencing mob ility issues to maneuver around the house.   If you are considering staying in your home as long as you can, look around. Will the current layout support accessibility and mobility as you age? Do you have a bungalow or a twostorey home? How much maintenance is required yearly to keep your current home safe and in great working order? Do you live in a neighbourhood that is close to amenities so you do not have to travel far to get groceries, access healthcare or take part in activities? Before considering any changes or moves, make a list. Sit down with your partner and make a list of all the changes that you b elieve should happen in your home. Don’t forget to do the math. Renovations can b e costly. Are the changes you are looking at necessary, or could you easily work around them?   Bathrooms are often the b est rooms to start renovations. Do you have a health condition that could mean you will be in a wheelchair in the future? Renovating the bathroom to make it b igger to accommodate a wheelchair will b e costly. There are some plumbing systems that can be installed quickly that are b udget-friendly. Upflush systems are all-in-one toilets and pumps. They take up less space than the average toilet. It can leave more room for accessib ility in the b athroom. Installing handrails on the walls and in the b athtub could also ensure the room is safe. Try adding non-slip stickers or mats to the floor of the tub . Consider having your b athtub refinished and add a non-slip surface. If you have a standup shower in your home, adding a chair or stool will help cut down on any chance of falling if you are uneasy on your feet. If you have a two-storey home then there may be a few more considerations to make when thinking ab out renovations. Will you b e ab le to safely navigate the stairs? Stair-lifts are an option to help you reach the second floor of your home without injury. If you have a straight staircase, the chair lift is easier to install and less expensive than if your staircase curves. For those using wheelchairs, you will require a chair on each level b ecause the chair lift does not accommodate the wheelchair. Another option would b e to move your second storey b edroom to the ground floor. Transforming another room into a b edroom would mean you avoid the second floor completely. However, you may need to renovate a smaller first-floor bathroom to ensure you have a tub or a shower.

Youth BEAT Fire Safety By Samantha Forani, Graduate of McMaster University Every year, students, or perhaps young adults, move into their first house. There are many things to consider when making this move, and more often than not, fire safety is overlooked. Equipment such as fire extinguishers and smoke alarms are a must for every household and can save your life. Beyond this, carbon monoxide detectors, emergency exit plans, and drills are essential for a safe environment. It is also important to familiarize yourself with your new surroundings and look at every outlet and electrical source to ensure they are up to code and meet safety standards. In my personal experience, when I moved into my first house, a student house while in school, fire safety was the last thing on my mind. I saw an extinguisher and a few fire alarms and assumed everything was fine. Little did I realize that the batteries were dead in almost every alarm and I still could not tell you the last time that extinguisher was even checked for an expiry date. Furthermore, in a house as old as the one I was living in, the outlets were incredibly questionable. Not to mention all of the frayed electrical wires and cords. In a nutshell, that house was a match waiting to be lit.

TMA-10_2016_print.indd 30

2016-09-22 3:05 PM


However, there are many simple precautions that can be taken to avoid that tragic possib ility. For starters, there should b e a working smoke alarm on every storey and outside all sleeping areas of the home. There should also b e carb on monoxide alarms outside of all sleeping areas. Unlike smoke and fire, carbon monoxide cannot be seen and is incredibly harmful so not having an alarm can b e life threatening. Never take the b atteries out of these alarms. While it may seem like an easy fix every time you b urn a piece of toast (b elieve me, I know), forgetting to put them back in could put your life at risk. On top of this, there are many other precautions and practises that can b e taken to ensure a safe living environment. For instance, never leave the kitchen while cooking. Stove top fires can start quickly and can b ecome unstoppab le. The kitchen is an important place to keep a fire extinguisher. You should also keep anything flammable, i.e. rugs, paper, etc. away from items such as space heaters. It is also important to unplug such items before you go to bed. As well, make sure not to overload outlets. This can cause serious fires quickly. Fires are dangerous, fast, and hard to stop once they are going. But thankfully, by following all of these steps and precautions, you can make your home a safe and fire-free environment. Make sure to test all alarms regularly and replace b atteries when needed and make sure your extinguisher is up-to-date. Otherwise, be safe and enjoy your new home!
