Now that we’ve set our clocks back and the leaves have fallen we know that Thanksgiving is right around the corner. This time of the year brings reflection on all that we are thankful for. The staff at Chatham Dental Center wants to thank you, our patients and community, for all of your support this year! We would not be the practice we are without you!
Tips to keep your teeth sparkling during the holiday season
Not in the time or place to brush? Follow these quick tips this winter!
If you find yourself drawn to drinks like coffee and red wine be sure to drink water after you’re done. Rinsing your mouth with water after consuming stain-prone beverages can help fight staining! This will also help rinse out food particles and bacteria that cause bad breath.
The two P’s
Parsley and peppermint. Parsley contains chlorophyll which is a known breath deodorizer and a drop of peppermint oil in your water can keep your breath fresh for hours!
Back to basics
The holidays are a great time to use the goody bags we send with you when leaving our office after a cleaning. The travel size mouthwash and floss are wonderful to have close by to use after a holiday meal or in between parties. A few seconds of oral TLC can help keep your breath fresh and your teeth healthy through all your winter activities!
We hope all of our patients and their families have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
The key for good oral health this winter?
Make sure you come in and see us! Have you had your second cleaning for the year? If you’re not sure, give us a call! Between parties, family in town, traveling, and cooking it’s important to not forget to schedule your second cleaning of 2017. Also, keep in mind that most insurance plans start over at the beginning of the new year so make sure you’ve got your two cleanings and any dental work done before your fiscal year ends!
