Reasons you should schedule your dentist appointment

The holiday season is just upon us. Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s Day—there is a lot of celebrating on the horizon. When you’re making plans, it might be easy to forget to schedule your dentist’s appointment, but here’s why now is the best time to squeeze in your annual cleaning. 

Flexible work schedules 

With multiple holidays and a lot of people using their vacation days, this time of year generally comes with a lessened workload. This makes it a lot easier for you to squeeze in an hour-long cleaning in your work week.   

Use those insurance benefits 

Don’t let those insurance benefits go to waste! Many basic insurance packages cover two dental visits a year. So, if you haven’t met your quota yet, now is the time to get those cleanings on the schedule.   

Address problems before winter 

If you have any dental concerns or pending issues, now is the time to address them. By addressing problems early, you can prevent them from becoming more severe during the winter months. This is particularly important because cold weather and holiday indulgence can lead to increased risk of dental problems like teeth sensitivity and cavities. 

Start the New Year with a healthy smile 

One of the best ways to kick off the new year is with a healthy smile. By scheduling a November or December dentist appointment, you can start the year with your dental health on track
