Prepare for the Holidays with a Teeth Cleaning

The holidays bring get-togethers, family reunions and travel, leaving us little time for the small things that keep us healthy like our dental hygiene. Tidings of comfort and joy unfortunately don’t keep the cavities away, so make sure to come into Perfect Smile Tulsa for a teeth cleaning this holiday season.

 

Maintaining Your Health

Holiday cooking is often delicious, decadent and destructive to our diets. It’s not just our diets that can suffer, however; the sugar-laden and carbohydrate-rich foods that we so love to indulge in during the holidays can also wreak havoc on our teeth. Sugar, both refined and the healthier type found in fruits, feeds the naturally occurring bacteria that reside in our mouth. These bacteria produce acid in order to do break down the sugary residue, which in turn can damage the enamel in our teeth, leading to cavities and tooth decay.

Managing Your Money

Many insurance plans do not roll over after December 31, so taking advantage of a pre-holiday teeth cleaning is not just wise in terms of health, it’s also fiscally responsible. Check with your provider about coverage, and be sure to beat the end of the year rush by scheduling an appointment early.

Perfecting Your Looks

Dazzle those who you haven’t seen in a year with a healthy, clean smile. Holiday gatherings and family get-togethers are also the perfect photo op to show off your pearly whites! Ask for a teeth-whitening treatment alongside your teeth cleaning for a bright, confident smile in all of your holiday pictures.

Scheduling a teeth cleaning before the holidays gives you one less thing to worry about (or forget about) during the busy rush of the season. Focus on friends, family and faith, but don’t forget about your dental health!
