One of the best times of year to get dental treatment is before the holidays. Getting your teeth cleaned (and perhaps whitened) so that you can look your best in holiday photos is a natural part of preparing for guests of several days or weeks. It is also a great time of year to get your semiannual exam and dental treatment plan.
Your benefits are about to start over.
Many people have their benefits begin and end with the calendar year. If you have an allotted amount of coverage and you haven’t used it, you should really consider getting what you’ve paid for all year long. Starting now gives you some time in case you need dental treatments covered before the end of the year.
You don’t want a toothache during family gatherings.
If you’re like most families, you end up with a lot more desserts than actual food. Everyone has their favorite holiday treats that they want to share. It would be a real shame if you couldn’t enjoy all of those goodies because you had an undiagnosed cavity. When you get your exam now, these minor issues can be found and solved so that you can eat whatever you like (within reason, of course!).
Tooth sensitivity can ruin your evening.
Do you enjoy sitting around a fire, singing carols with your loved ones, while sipping hot cocoa, hot toddies, or hot spiced cider? Having sensitive teeth can ruin that picture perfect moment by causing pain with the heat of your beverage. Your dentist can help you protect your teeth so that you can still enjoy these treats.
