Three Reasons to See a Dentist Before Christmas

Seeing your dentist before the hustle and bustle of the holidays gets here is important. Here’s why:

You Capitalize on Your Included Benefits

Most insurances cover two dental cleanings per year. If you push your second yearly visit off till January, you’re throwing money away. Since benefits re-set every January 1st, you won’t be able to get three cleanings next year. Be sure to get the ones you’re entitled to.

If you need to start treatment, it’s better now than never. You’ll be able to capitalize on your annual benefits before they expire.

Fresher Breath and Brighter Smiles

Chances are like most people you probably have a few different holiday parties on the calendar. Getting a routine checkup in time for the holidays will mean that your hygienist can remove odorous tartar buildup and polish off superficial tooth stain. If you want, you even have time to get your teeth whitened.

If you haven’t been flossing very well, the calcified tartar along your gumlines can’t be cleaned off on your own. Scheduling a preventative cleaning will give you a blank slate to help maintain through the new year.

You Can Avoid an Emergency While Traveling

December tends to be one of the busiest times of the year to travel, whether you’re flying or driving on the interstate. The last thing you need when you’re out of town is a painful dental emergency. Seeing your dentist on a regular basis means that smaller issues can be intercepted and addressed before they have a chance to progress into bigger problems.

Treating issues earlier isn’t just more affordable, it means less invasive procedures that are safer for your teeth.
