November 1, 2017
Like most people, you’re probably thinking about the upcoming holidays. Certainly, everyone celebrates in their own special way, but despite that, we all share common experiences this time of year.
You’ll likely be loading up your Thanksgiving plate with a mountain of culinary delights like turkey and mashed potatoes. You’re also probably getting your last minute travel plans in order to visit with distant relatives and family friends.
Given how much eating and smiling you’ll be doing during this time of year, your teeth need to be ready to withstand that kind of pressure!
That’s why our team at Oregon Smile Care Center is spending today’s blog on restorative dentistry. In our Salem dental office, we can help restore the look and function of your teeth so you can chew comfortably and smile confidently.
Today, we’re telling you why November is the perfect time for restorative dentistry!
It takes quite of bit to actually damage your teeth. That’s because they’re made to be strong for a lifetime of tearing, biting, and chewing. And most of time, your teeth stand up to that challenge.
But sometimes, you can do damage to your teeth. It can happen because of poor dental habits that result in tooth decay or gum disease. It can also happen suddenly and unexpectedly because of an accident or injury.
What do these problems mean for your smile? Here are a few of the consequences:
-Cracked & Chipped Teeth
-Cavities & Infections
These kinds of dental problems call for restorative dentistry, especially when they happen around the holidays! Imagine trying to endure Thanksgiving with a toothache or pain when you chew!
Luckily, thanks to advanced technology and our skilled professionals, you can repair your teeth and preserve your smile with restorative dentistry in our Salem, OR dental office. We offer ways to fix your teeth like:
-Dental Crowns & Bridges
-Dental Implants & Dentures
Thanks to Dr. Hanson and our experienced team, you don’t have to let a damaged tooth, missing teeth, or a toothache to spoil your holidays!
So what is it about the month of November that makes it such a good time for restorative dentistry? Here are a few of the reasons we think repairing your teeth this time of year is the smart choice!
Eat Delicious Food Easily And Painlessly!
Imagine sitting at your family’s table for Thanksgiving dinner with a nagging toothache or a cracked tooth that’s giving you fits and makes chewing uncomfortable.
Sounds miserable any day of the week, let alone on a holiday like Thanksgiving. With succulent turkey, mashed potatoes dripping with gravy, stuffing, dumplings, and broccoli casserole, the last thing you want to deal with is painful chewing or missing teeth.
Making sure your teeth are healthy and in good working order is a must if you want to fully enjoy all the culinary delights of the season!
Smile Confidently For Photos!
We’ve already mentioned before, this is the start of a string of special holiday events. Inevitably, this will invite a lot of opportunities for photos. You could try to avoid having your picture taken if you’re embarrassed by a toothless smile or damaged teeth. However, the advent of the smartphone has made capturing and sharing photos has made it nearly impossible to avoid.
That’s okay, you tell yourself. You can just smile with your mouth closed. But who wants to deal with that every time someone shouts, “Group selfie!” for the next couple of months?
Repairing your teeth or replacing teeth in November will give you a natural-looking, attractive smile so you don’t have to hide from all the devices floating around out there! You can flash a confident smile and look at those pictures later feeling great about how you looked.
Eating and smiling: two things you do more this time of year than probably any other! Why not feel good about the social gathering and all the delicious food and photo flashing that comes with it by scheduling your restorative treatment now?
