Thanksgiving is hovering in the air with the promise of delicious aromas and food that come with it. For your teeth however, if they are left uncared for or neglected, it can be a seasonal oral nightmare. That is why it’s so important to keep up with your oral care.

Keeping up with daily oral habits such as brushing and flossing, does not guarantee that you will never have a cavity or a toothache. However, it does dramatically reduce the chances of having oral problems or complications. Keeping up with your dentist at least twice a year is a sure way to prevent any cavities or gum disease from reaching a sever condition. It is far easier on your smile to have a dentist correct a small cavity, than to wait until the cavity becomes sever and cause extreme pain and damage, including potential tooth loss.

Remembering the basic habits of brushing your teeth twice a day, as well as, flossing every day will help you to keep your oral health in excellent shape. If you have any questions about your oral care this holiday season, please contact your dentist. Your dentist can give you a cleaning and assist you with any questions or concerns you have pertaining to your oral care.
