3 Reasons To Schedule A Checkup Before The Holidays

You keep hearing it: The holidays are coming! However, you know that there are holidays throughout the entire year, so what exactly is this implying and what’s it got to do with your oral health, your schedule, and more, you wonder? Our Columbia, TN team is happy to clarify all of the above! Remember that once autumn begins, it means Halloween will be followed by Thanksgiving and then the festive wintertime holidays, followed by the New Year! It’s one after another, which means as much fun as it is, it’s also something that may require more careful planning when compared with other times of the year! Consider the reasons we suggest a dental checkup now, rather than in the midst of the action!

#1: You Need Two Visits A Year

As you know, your preventive care that we recommend for you and every other patients includes a dental checkup and cleaning. That is, a checkup and cleaning every six months. About twice a year. That means that depending on how you usually schedule things out, you may be due for your next visit quite soon. However, when you look out into the next few months, you may wonder when you’ll ever find the time. Let us know if your schedule becomes quite packed and we may suggest you come in as soon as possible. Remember, if you’re ever unsure about care, it’s better to get in touch with us then to procrastinate or avoid what you think your oral health might need!

#2: If Something’s Wrong, It Can Be Disruptive

If you have a cavity that you don’t know about or that you’ve been ignoring, our team reminds you that this is really not something you want to carry with you into the holiday season. At first, you may regard it as one of those things you need to just deal with once the new year is here and in full swing. However, what might end up happening? You may end up with a toothache, serious damage, or otherwise that ends up causing your plans to crumble in a less than desirable way. See us for a dental checkup now and say yes to any required restorative care now, so you don’t have to worry about a thing!

#3: You Haven’t Realized Improvements Are Possible
