If you didn’t have a healthy smile, you wouldn’t be able to enjoy the many foods and treats this Thanksgiving! But, thanks to your dentist, you have a strong, healthy smile that can handle all of the goodies the holidays have to offer. The many treatments your dentist offers to get you to that perfect smile include:

Dental Cleanings
Your dental cleanings are extremely important when it comes to preventing major dental issues like gum disease. Without these cleanings, gum disease will attack your smile and will affect your gums and jaw bones. As time passes by, the plaque and tartar that live and grow on your teeth will continually affect your smile and eventually cause loose and lost teeth. Your dental cleanings will remove the plaque and tartar from your teeth and save your smile. They will also deeply clean, polish, and nourish your smile.

Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry is a branch of dentistry that offers many different treatments that help you improve the appearance of your smile. With the help of cosmetic dentistry, you will have a bright, brilliant, and straight smile this Thanksgiving.

Preventive Dentistry
Preventive dentistry is a branch of dentistry that helps you prevent dental issues, like tooth decay and gum disease. With your dentist’s preventive measures, you will be able to fight dental cavities and other dental problems throughout the holidays.

Restorative Dentistry
No one likes to have oral pain during the holidays, especially because it makes eating your favorite treats nearly impossible. So, to help you restore your smile after sugar, bacteria, and plaque have weakened your enamel and damaged your teeth, your dentist is happy to offer restorative dentistry. There are many options available that can finally give you the strong, functional smile that can handle the many Thanksgiving foods, treats, and deserts.

Oral Hygiene Tips
Your dentist will give you the oral hygiene tips you need to clean your smile each day and free it from the daily food particles and bacteria that attack your teeth and destroy the enamel. It is very important that you continually brush, floss, and rinse each day.

So, as you’re grateful for your healthy smile this Thanksgiving, why not be grateful for your dentist as well? Your dentist works hard to help you have the best smile possible, and we encourage you to share your gratitude with him during your next dental visit. We love to hear your success stories, and we look forward to talking with you!
