You may not hear the term, “home for the holidays,” and think about a dental visit. You probably think more about spending time with family, cozying up to the fireplace with some hot cocoa, and wearing pajamas a lot of the time. However, a winter break from school or work can be a great time to schedule a visit with your dentist. For kids and parents that live at home, it can be easier to make an appointment during the free weekdays. For someone back to Olathe, KS, after a semester away at college, it can be a great time to check in with the dentist.
Time for a Check-up
Everyone should have at least two routine exams and cleanings a year. If you are not sure if you have visited your dentist at least twice in 2018, it is time to schedule your visit. Routine exams give you a chance to stay on top of your dental health and prevent any major problems from happening. Imagine it is like getting routine oil changes and tune-ups for your car rather than waiting to go to the mechanic when your car no longer starts. A routine cleaning is an imperative part of your oral health. It is a way to remove bacterial buildup that you cannot remove on your own with a toothbrush and floss.
Wisdom Teeth Need Out?
Wisdom teeth typically emerge for people between the ages of 17 and 22, which is a range that covers high school and college students. It you have someone in the family in that age range, it can be important to check in on the wisdom teeth. In many cases, wisdom teeth can cause issues for the rest of the smile and end up needing to be removed.
