Then you wouldn’t be able to enjoy the holiday as much as you would like, which is why you should be grateful for your dentist this Thanksgiving season! Your dentist offers many different services that improve and maintain the health of your smile so you can enjoy life to the fullest, and those services include:

Dental Cleanings
There are many dental issues that can completely destroy your smile, and your dental cleanings will help you prevent as well as treat those issues. One of the biggest and scariest dental issues is gum disease. This condition develops when the plaque and tartar live and grow on your smile without being treated. As they continue to grow, your gums begin to bleed and recede and the jaw bone begins to deteriorate. So, it is very important that you receive a dental cleaning every six months.

Cosmetic Dentistry
Cosmetic dentistry can help you finally achieve the smile you are looking for. With your dentist’s help and the many treatments available, the imperfections in your teeth can finally become corrected and your self-esteem will finally get boosted. This will help you feel confident in and proud of your smile this holiday season.

Preventive Dentistry
Preventive dentistry is a great way to prevent dental issues, like tooth decay and gum disease. With preventive dentistry and the help of your dentist, you will be able to enjoy the holidays as well as the holiday foods and treats all while maintaining the health of your smile.

Oral Hygiene Tips
Without oral hygiene, your smile would be damaged and harmed. Because of the many oral hygiene tips and tools your dentist gives you, you are able to completely care for and clean your smile as much as possible, giving you the beautiful and healthy smile you are looking for.
