This time of year, it is all about glitz, glamor, glitter and gifts. For students, it is also about rest and relaxation in the middle of the school year, as winter break provides time off from the rigors of study. This is also the perfect time to get a dental checkup and ensure their smiles and yours stay bright and healthy.
A Great Time for Student Checkups
It is no secret that college students do not eat the best when they are away from home. Schools still dish up heaps of carb-loaded food and students are prone to eat comfort food, including more than their fair share of sweets. All this can wreak havoc on tooth enamel. A mid-school-year dental checkup provides an opportunity to detect and treat dental problems before they cause major damage.
With your dental checkup comes a professional cleaning. This cleaning removes all the plaque and tartar buildup on the teeth that cannot be handled with normal brushing and flossing. The hygienist also uses this time to check for signs of gingivitis. Gum disease starts quietly and left unchecked, can ruin a smile.
Smile Pretty for the Camera
Brighten up those holiday smiles with a professional teeth whitening session. In less than an hour, your teeth will look their brightest, making those holiday pictures even more beautiful. Having your teeth cleaned at the dental office provides you with a measure of safety and brightness that you cannot get with over-the-counter whitening kits. Removing the stains from foods and beverages and dinginess from smoking can make your teeth look healthier and give you an overall rejuvenated appearance.
This holiday season, do something special for yourself and your kids; make an investment in oral health. Schedule your appointment with Gramercy Dental Center today, so you can look your best through the holidays and start your New Year off with a bright, healthy smile.
