Whether you’re a student or a working professional, chances are you’ve been granted a long holiday break. As a result, seeing a dentist probably isn’t on your agenda during your time off. Self-care is a necessity, though. You may have stopped working – but your teeth haven’t. In fact, there is no better time to see a dentist than right before Christmas. Here are three reasons why.
Say ‘Candy Canes!’
Need a little inspiration for your next family Christmas photo? Make your teeth the subject! Visiting the dentist before Christmas for teeth cleaning and a wellness exam is the perfect remedy for updating your loved ones on your clan’s togetherness.
Your sparkly smile is sure to inspire your circle to take the same precautions during their time away from the office.
Plus, studies have shown a link between a whiter, healthier smile and higher self esteem. Treat yourself to good vibes this holiday season!
Cash In On Benefits
If you’ve only had one teeth cleaning in 2021, you’re definitely due for another.
Most dental insurance plans cover two teeth cleanings per year.
Insurance policies are not always as concrete as we’d like to think they are. Policies are prone to change and premiums can fluctuate.
To get the best bang for your buck, take advantage of both cleanings before they expire, or before the next round of open enrollment occurs. If and when benefits do expire, it’s usually at the end of the year.
This is particularly useful if your dentist comes across something that needs addressing during the cleaning.
Sometimes life really beats us down. Whether it’s a tooth on the verge of breaking in two, decay, or a filling that fell out while you were eating that crispy gingerbread cookie covered in sticky icing, dental emergencies can creep up at any time.
No one wants to spend a day that’s meant for cheer, smiles, and presents at the dentist. That’s why it’s important to make an appointment before Christmas.
Your dentist looks for any developing abnormalities during a routine cleaning and exam. Depending on how soon you book your appointment, your smile could be back to normal just in time for the holiday festivities.
