Caring for your smile is always important, especially before and after the holidays. At Hires Dental Care, we provide comprehensive dental services to improve the health, beauty, and overall wellness of our patients’ smiles. Hires Dental Care puts the patient first – offering convenient evening and weekend appointments, as well as providing a comfortable, friendly environment. Here are our three tips on maintaining your dental health this holiday season:
Use Your Dental Insurance Benefits
You might as well utilize all of the dental insurance benefits that you’ve worked hard for. We encourage our patients to use their dental insurance benefits before the new year comes. We know that your schedule only gets busier and busier as the holidays arrive. This means that now is the perfect time to schedule your next preventative care appointment or schedule any necessary dental care that you’ve been putting off. Hires Dental Care accepts most dental insurances, but is a premier provider for Delta Dental and Cigna. Regardless of your insurance plan, one of our patient care coordinators would be happy to run a complimentary benefits check for your specific policy – just ask when scheduling your appointment! Remember, use them or lose them.
Brush & Floss
Maintaining your at-home oral hygiene routine is essential to the longevity of your dental health. As the holidays get hectic, remember to take some time for your smile every day. We recommend brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day. Additionally, keep in mind that there are some holiday treats that are tougher on your smile than others. Some holiday favorites known for staining your teeth and dulling your smile include hot cocoa, red wine, cranberry sauce, and fruit-flavored pie. These substances contain powerful staining agents that will cause tooth discoloration if their residues remain on your teeth for too long. If you enjoy any of these holiday favorites, make sure to follow them up with a thorough brushing and flossing session.
Look Your Best
As family dinners, holiday weddings, and office gatherings begin to take place, you deserve to feel confident with your own smile. Studies have shown that patients who love their smiles are more likely to take better care of them on a daily basis. This is why our office will gladly help you achieve any cosmetic goals that you have for your smile before or after the holiday season. Whether you want to conceal minor blemishes on your dental structures before the holidays arrive, or if you need to restore your smile and brighten their appearance after some holiday fun, we are here for you. If you are interested in teeth whitening or other cosmetic dentistry solutions in Perrysburg, OH, Sylvania Township, OH and Toledo, OH, schedule a consultation with Hires Dental Care. Dr. J.
