  March 2016: Tips, eNews & More!

While you may not get to enjoy a week off, your children do. What better time to schedule a dental cleaning? This is a busy time of year for children’s check-ups so plan ahead and schedule an appointment today!

March is also National Nutrition Month

The theme for 2016 is "Make Small Changes – One Meal at a Time”. Diets and workout routines are often abandoned because people expect changes to happen overnight. Don’t make the mistake of setting the bar too high. Plan for small improvements each step of the way so you can move towards your personal finish line.

Proper nutrition is integral to overall health and vitality. The foods you choose affect your oral health from the moment you put them in your mouth. Visit to learn more about National Nutrition Month and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

Wishing you a year filled with smiles,

Bloor Dental Health Centre

 What is TMJ?

Each person has two TMJ joints that are used to open and close our mouths when we chew, talk, and swallow.

The TMJ connects the lower jaw (mandible) to the skull. The lower jaw and the skull are connected by a number of muscles and ligaments, which function in harmony when the lower jaw is in the correct position. The head of the lower jaw bone is called a condyle and it fits into the concavity of the temporal bone called the glenoid fossa and are separated by an articular disc. The two bones of the TMJ are held together by a series of ligaments.
