31 Oct The 12 Days of Dental Christmas: 12 Services that Guarantee a Healthy Mouth
Whether it’s a simple cleaning or an in-depth orthodontic treatment, Quay Dental is providing dental care this holiday season that best suits your needs. A wide variety of treatments and services are best taken advantage of before the insurance year is over. Grab your holiday hat and your smile, because this Christmas, you’ll benefit from one or more of these great services!
1. Dental Checkup and Cleaning
It is never too late – or too early – to check in for a cleaning. Making a habit out of regular dental visits for checkups keeps cavities at bay and prevents any major dental issues from developing.
2. Restorative Dentistry
Do you grind your teeth too much at night? Do you experience cavity pain or are you in need of a filling? Don’t wait until after you’ve eaten holiday sweets for a month. You can undergo procedures to fix broken or chipped teeth, get fillings for cavities, and help take preventative measures against grinding.
3. Crowns and Bridges
If you’ve had a root canal treatment, or are losing enamel on your teeth, then you are well aware of how easily you can lose or badly chip a tooth. With prosthetic teeth such as crowns and bridges, you won’t have to cover your mouth when you smile, nor will you have to hide your confidence!
4. Root Canal Treatment
Adults and children alike cringe at the mention of a root canal. Why is that, exactly? In the past, patients have referred to it as a painful experience – the opposite of an experience you want to have with the approaching holidays! Today’s endodontic therapy is far less painful, and prevents what could be a very dire and dangerous infection.
5. Gum Disease Treatment
Did you know that the number one cause of tooth loss in the world (including the North Pole!) is periodontal disease? Once plaque becomes tartar, it itches the gums and develops into gingivitis. The longer it lasts, the bigger risk it has of turning into gum disease. Let us scrape off that tartar and prevent a major disaster in your mouth!
6. Cosmetic Dentistry
A crooked smile is nothing to be ashamed of. But this Christmas, you can achieve an unbroken and professional smile through cosmetic work. Whether it’s veneers or porcelain crowns, cosmetic services help you achieve the smile of your dreams. Your children can benefit from braces and retainers as well.
7. Teeth Whitening
Is your mouth dreaming of a white Christmas? Teeth whitening is a painless procedure that can inspire dazzling and clean results. Teeth become stained, worn, and yellowed – it’s natural! But advances in dental technology can revitalize your teeth, giving them the color they deserve. Show off your bright smile this holiday season!
Implants are an exciting alternative to dentures, and can give you the strength and comfort needed to bite into several holiday feasts. Implants screw into the existing bone mass in your jaw, giving you a permanent and natural addition to your teeth and smile.
9. Oral Surgery
In the event that the Tooth Fairy becomes just too demanding, and removing a tooth or teeth is necessary, advanced oral services are available with the most comfortable procedures possible. Tooth extraction is a quick procedure, and is followed up with the creation of a crown or implant to best suit your needs.
If implants are not possible for you this holiday season, then consider a nice set of dentures. With a completely natural look and feel, full or partial dentures are available for those with gentle mouths. Most people can’t tell dentures apart from natural teeth!
11. Mouth Guards and Snoring
Snoring and teeth grinding are two of the most common dental symptoms that people face on a nightly basis. Snoring devices were created to help unblock nasal pathways and prevent snoring. Snoring isn’t just an annoying sound; it actually builds up bacteria on your teeth as you sleep!
12. Children’s Dentistry
A full range of children’s services include fun and fast checkups, cleanings, braces, and more. While children may not consider dental work a great holiday gift, they will feel better about their mouths and their smiles.
