dental health in ontario sign now


Fiona and I are starting a petition regarding dental health in


We are going to present this petition along with a fact sheet about

how important dental health is, to the local MP to see what can be done.

We believe that OHIP should cover the cost of emergency dental care

for adults in Ontario or at least offer a benefit plan for families with

lower incomes.

Below are some facts about what can happen to people with gum disease

and tooth decay.

Please help us out by copying this email and pasting it on a new message, signing your name and passing it along to others.

When we reach 500 names we would appreciate it if that person could

send a copy back to us at [email protected]

On behalf of our families and others in town we would like to send you our deepest thanks.

Dental disease is an epidemic. Ninety percent of the population

suffers from some form of this disease. Between 30 and 50 percent of the

population has periodontal disease, the most destructive form of dental disease.

Untreated, dental disease can lead to:

Gum Disease

Dental Abscesses

Tooth Decay

Tooth Loss

Bad Breath

Unsightly Teeth

Root Canals


Pain & Discomfort

Anyone who has experienced any of the above dental problems can

attest to the fact that they are no fun to deal with. But dental disease also

generates a great deal of stress and over 50\% of the population suffer

some degree of fear and anxiety because of it. In addition, dental treatment

can be very time consuming and expensive, especially when added up over a


Effects of Gum Disease on Your Health

Of course all that is bad enough but the damaging effects of dental disease are not limited to the teeth and gums. It can and does negatively impact the overall health of the body. Yet, as destructive as dental disease can be, most people,

including many dentists and physicians, still believe that the damage it does is

limited to the oral cavity. But the fact is that numerous scientific

studies no longer support that long-held assumption. We now know that

gum disease can contribute to and increase the risk and severity of

heart attack;



low preterm birth weights;

respiratory disease;


digestive disorders; and

It can also severely stress the immune system and lower the bodys

resistance to infections.

Christine and Fiona

    The last time I looked in the mirror, my eyes and teeth were part of my physical body, which OHIP includes. Having infections flowing through your body causes more problems and strains the system, taking care of our teeth and eyes just may help!!
