How to Keep Your Teeth Healthy for This Holiday Season

Franklin Dental would like to wish you a happy holiday season and express our gratitude for your continued support throughout the year! 

We are a local Fort McMurray-owned and operated business and truly appreciate and value each of our clients. Whether you need routine dental cleaning, restorative treatments, or cosmetic procedures to achieve a bright white smile, you can count on us for your dental needs. 

With the holidays upon and the hustle and bustle of the season, it’s easy to let our dental hygiene habits fall to the wayside. Now is a great time to remind you of the importance of maintaining good dental care. Here are our top tips to help ensure you’re entering 2023 with a healthy set of gums and teeth. 

1. Keep Up with Your Dental Health Game

The holidays represent a time of fun-filled cheerfulness with loved ones. However, for many people, the holidays also become a time when they fall off the good oral habits they have maintained during the year. 

Do everything you can to keep up with the dental health practices that procure your vibrant smile! Bushing, flossing, eating healthy, etc. After indulging in all the holiday treats and snacks, come for a visit for some dental cleaning so you can hit the new year running while staying on top of your oral health. 

2. Notify Us of Any Pain and Discomfort

When people feel pain, aches, and other discomforts with their teeth during a busy holiday, they tend to brush it off. Doing this, however, can cause more issues down the line. You should pay close attention to any persistent mouth pains, as these are indicators that it’s time for a change of habit or a visit to your dentist. This brings us to the third oral health tip:

3. Drop in for a Pre-Holiday Cleaning

Please book an appointment with us today for a quick checkup or dental cleaning before the holiday season. By doing so, you’ll be comfortable knowing that your oral health is prepared for the buffet of food and drinks you’re bound to consume during the holidays!

May Your Smiles Be Merry and Bright!

Dental cleanings promote good oral hygiene and minimize the risk of frequent dentist visits each year. Learn more about our Dental cleaning services here at Franklin Dental and how we provide local anesthetic for patients with severe sensitivity.

We also provide cosmetic, restorative, or general dentistry options to help you sustain your best smile! 

From all of us here at Franklin Dental, we wish you a happy new year and a joyous holiday season!
