Your dental health is very important to us at Dental Distinction. As the holidays are fast approaching, the Dental Distinction team wanted to remind our patients of some essential dental health information. Read some of our tips on preparing your smile for the upcoming holiday season:
Make Time To See A Dentist
As your calendar quickly fills with holiday plans, ensure you are making time to see a dentist as the year ends. Oral health and wellness visits are essential when it comes to preventing the need for costly restorative treatments later on. By seeing a dentist now, you are saving yourself time and money down the road. Additionally, it’s important to see a dentist if you have unused dental insurance benefits. After the holidays end, the year soon does too. Utilize any benefits that you have remaining to ensure they do not go to waste. Our Chester Springs dentist office will accept any dental insurance that will lower the cost of your treatment. If your treatment is not covered by dental insurance, we will work with you to make your out of pocket expenses as easy and manageable as possible. Contact us directly about any concerns regarding financing your dental care.
Brush & Floss
We would hate to see patients suffering from dental emergencies in the new year because they neglected their oral hygiene during the holidays. Unfortunately, this often occurs. As your schedule gets busier, it’s important to make time for yourself and brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day. During the holidays, many foods and beverages that are popular during gatherings can be tough on your smile. Substances like red wine, hot cocoa, cranberry sauce, or fruit-flavored pies can leave behind staining agents on your teeth and dull your smile. By following up a tooth-staining snack with a thorough brushing and flossing session, you can prevent tooth discoloration and preserve the beauty of your smile.
Consider Cosmetic Dentistry
To ensure you look your best this holiday season, consider scheduling a cosmetic consultation with Dr. Petkevis. He can offer a variety of cosmetic dentistry services to address aesthetic issues like missing teeth, stained teeth, chipped teeth, and crooked teeth. Your smile is often the first thing that people notice about you. We understand that you want to make a good impression. If you have been feeling the need to hide your smile or avoid public speaking, consider giving yourself the gift of a smile makeover. Dr. Petkevis has undergone advanced post-graduate training in cosmetic dentistry. He has studied under some of the world’s leading dentists in functional and esthetic dentistry. Schedule an appointment today to meet with him and discuss your ideal cosmetic treatment plan.
