Why Visit Dentist in December?

The holidays are a busy time for everyone. But if you think about all the holiday food and drink you’ll be consuming, your teeth and gums could be at risk for decay or injury. Additionally, many people fail to schedule regular cleanings or exams while they’re on vacation. That’s why it’s important to see your dentist in December before the busy holiday season begins.

While the holiday season is a time for celebration and fun, it’s also a time when your oral health can suffer. If you visit the dentist for a cleaning and exam before the holidays begin, you’ll have one less thing to worry about, and you can enjoy the holiday season without worry.

Quicker Resolutions to Dental Problems

Many people put off visiting the dentist until they have a serious problem that needs to be corrected immediately. While dentists can resolve many issues with fast, effective procedures, it’s much better to maintain a clean smile and prevent issues in the first place. During your end-of-the-year appointment, your dentist can help you resolve any problems that have occurred or may potentially develop going forward.

Some patients avoid the dentist during this time of year because they’re afraid of what they might learn. However, a dentist is your partner in keeping your oral health in good shape. By scheduling an appointment now, you can learn about ways to avoid new problems and resolve current ones. For example, if you’ve started to notice some decay forming on one of your teeth, your dentist can fill in that spot with a tooth-colored filling to restore your smile.

You can also have professional teeth cleaning to remove plaque and tartar buildup from hard-to-reach areas that you wouldn’t be able to clean at home. This helps to prevent cavities and gum disease later on in the year. Additionally, you can schedule any needed dental work for the next year so that you’re prepared in advance and can maintain regular appointments throughout the year for optimal dental health.

Better Insurance Benefits

Your dental insurance plan likely renews every calendar year, and your benefits reset on that date. Even if you’ve maxed out your plan this year, it can still pay for you to get your teeth cleaned before you lose them. Some plans also lower your deductible or increase your maximum coverage in the new year. Even if you aren’t due for a major procedure, visiting your dentist for cleaning helps ensure that your oral health is in its best condition going forward. That can lower the risk of serious issues like gum disease and cavities. Plus, you might even be able to squeeze in a teeth-whitening treatment to brighten your smile for the holidays!
