Along with Halloween and other fun fall activities that we celebrate during the month of October, we have another reason to celebrate — honoring dental health! This is a reminder to evaluate the way you care for your oral health not only during this month, but each and every day. Maintaining proper oral health throughout the year can help prevent dental emergencies and the need for additional treatments.
Do you long for a dentist who makes you feel like they truly care about you and your family and meeting everyone’s needs? Do you dread going to the dentist because you feel like you are only a number and your concerns aren’t being addressed? At Parkside Dental Care, located in Montgomery, AL, we pride ourselves on offering comprehensive dental care for the whole family, with experience you can trust.
December is here, which means many of us are in full swing preparing for the upcoming holidays. While things may look a little different this year, with cancelled holiday parties and smaller family gatherings, there are still those constants that we can always look forward to: beautifully wrapped packages, twinkling decorations, and delicious holiday treats. If you are anything like the famous movie character, Buddy the Elf, and you stick to his four main food groups of candy, candy canes, candy corn, and syrup, you may be visiting our office to ring in the new year. We are in no way suggesting that you eliminate delicious treats during your celebrations, but we are here to suggest some helpful tips to keep your oral health in check while you partake in the festivities of the season.
Do you wish your teeth were whiter? Do you notice that your teeth appear yellowed or stained?
Keeping up with regular checkups and exams is the best way to keep your teeth healthy, but there are also things you can do at home to achieve a whiter smile. Would you like to know what they are?
We do our best to make sure our patients’ teeth are clean and healthy, but hygiene habits practiced outside of our office have an even bigger impact on your oral health. We all need a refresher from time to time on the best ways to keep our teeth clean at home. Read more to learn how to keep your smile healthy and happy.
