The City of Niagara Falls, Ontario

February 9, 2011 § Leave a comment

Dr. James Frizzell effectively supervises his dental clinic in the Canadian city of Niagara Falls. The city remains situated in the province of Ontario on the Niagara River. Abutting the U.S., Canada’s Niagara Falls shares an international border with the city of Niagara Falls in state of New York. Collectively, the sister cities contain the Niagara River’s historic waterfalls, but the more spectacular vista point of the two waterfalls lies on the Canadian side of the river.

Originally settled by the Iroquois, the area in Canada now known as Niagara Falls received its first visitors, French priest Louis Hennepin and other Europeans, in the 17th century. Incorporated as the town of Clifton in 1856, the Canadian city of Niagara Falls acquired its present name in 1881. It subsequently received formal incorporation as a city in 1904.

Niagara Falls, Ontario, remains a popular tourist destination. Additionally, it retains a residential population of more than 83,000 people. Though the city’s economy principally sustains itself through tourism-related activities, the waterfalls’ capacity as an ongoing source of hydroelectric power helps to attract a variety of industrial sectors to the picturesque region.

As a respected business proprietor and resident of Niagara Falls, Ontario, Dr. James Frizzell gives back to his community in a number of ways, including donating to Easter Seals and the United Way of Canada. Dr. James Frizzell owns and operates Frizzell Dental, a clinic specializing in cosmetic, general, and restorative dentistry.

United Way of Canada, also known as Centraide Canada, operates 117 regional and local branches focused on improving the living conditions of the country’s poverty-stricken residents. The largest non-government volunteer provider of social services in Canada, United Way of Canada raises more than $480 million each year to support a variety of programs, which are organized by 900 employees and thousands of volunteers. United Way of Canada oversees several initiatives, including the Action for Neighborhood Change, an effort to revitalize low-income communities and provide resources to those living in them. Each United Way of Canada chapter approaches the problems of hunger, homelessness, and poverty in a different way. For example, Thompson Nicola Carbioo United Way, located in British Columbia, established a Youth Advisory Council of young men and women who wanted to make a difference in their communities. The Council spawned several service projects, as well as a Youth Day of Caring when members of the group and other youths volunteer within the cities and towns they live in.

The United Way serving Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox, and Addington published a groundbreaking report on the city of Kingston, Ontario’s homeless population and the affordable housing options available to them. The report recommended ways to remedy the problem, such as adopting a program already successfully in cities throughout Canada and the United States. United Way Toronto recently applied $109 million in donations toward bolstering efforts in 13 low-income neighborhoods and building a network of medical and social service agencies across the city.

Proper Oral Hygiene

Dental Floss

by Dr. James Frizzell

In addition to regularly visiting the dentist, you must develop positive oral hygiene practices to ensure the continued health of your mouth, gums, and teeth. The primary objective of brushing is to remove the plaque and tartar that builds up between appointments with a dental hygienist. Failure to brush your teeth regularly results in tooth decay, gum disease, and gingivitis, all of which necessitate further dental procedures. Brush your teeth after every meal or at least twice each day using a soft toothbrush and gentle circular motions. Ensure that the backs of your teeth are clean, as well as the tongue. By brushing your tongue, you improve your breath and remove the decaying food and dead cells that tend to build up on the surface. Floss regularly (at least once each day) to remove the material that builds up between teeth. Flossing both improves breath and drastically lowers your risk for a number of gum diseases. Using a high-quality mouthwash is also an important part of daily oral hygiene, but should never become a substitute for brushing or flossing. Several foods that are rich in antioxidants, calcium, phosphates, and Vitamin C are beneficial for your teeth; these include: apples; strawberries; milk; yogurt; green tea; orange vegetables, such as pumpkins, carrots, and sweet potatoes; sesame seeds; and treated water, which often contains fluoride. Foods with large amounts of sugars and acidic items, like vinegar and soft drinks, harm your teeth’s enamel and should be avoided as much as possible. Consuming these foods significantly increases your risk for cavities. Also, smoking and smokeless tobacco are directly related to mouth cancer and other dental diseases. You should refrain from any form of tobacco use.
