OK, so around this time of the year, with all of the fun and activity of the holidays, making an appointment with your dentist is probably the last thing on your mind! But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be thinking about doing it in the near future. In fact, there are many reasons why you should make it your New Year’s resolution to see your dentist!
A Brand New Smile
What would you change about your smile? Do you hate that your teeth have stains? Do you wish they weren’t so crooked? Your dentist can help the appearance of your teeth, with professional tooth whitening, porcelain veneers, or tooth bonding, as just a few examples. If you have several different issues, full month reconstruction, which addresses many problems and is individualized to your needs, may be the answer.
Your Oral Health
There are some things your dentist can help you with that fall into the “cosmetic” category, but they are also important for your oral health. Dental implants, for instance, not only make you less self-conscious about your smile, they are also good for the health of your jawbone and your other teeth. Even if you don’t have pain or problems with your teeth (and you aren’t concerned about how they look), visiting your dentist twice a year is an excellent idea. He or she can make sure that your teeth and gums are as healthy as they can be and can spot issues that could become big problems. They may even be able to help in ways you don’t expect – perhaps you keep getting headaches and you don’t know why – your dentist will be able to diagnose TMJ, a problem with the jaw that can cause a lot of pain in your head and neck.
Your dentist not only keeps your teeth healthy; he or she can also help to keep your smile beautiful, can look for any potential issues before they become painful problems, and can even help you to feel better overall. Make it your New Year’s resolution to make an appointment with the Konig Center for Cosmetic and Comprehensive Dentistry in Houston, Texas. Call (713) 668-2289 for an appointment!
