Why are dental health professionals like us wary of sugar? Simple. The harmful bacteria on our teeth and gums like to eat sugar as much as we do.
Using Up Your Dental Benefits
Dental Insurance is a hot commodity. Not everyone has it, and not everyone who has it uses it. But if you do have dental insurance, you’ve been paying into it out of every paycheck, amounting to hundreds of dollars this year alone. Have you taken advantage of the benefits you’ve paid for?
Two Cleanings A Year
Most, if not all, dental plans usually allow for two dental exams and cleanings every year. Did you get yours done this year? If not, now is the time to take care of your teeth and gums: X-rays, cleaning, periodontal screening, the works. If you don’t use this benefit, you lose it, and that really just means money wasted!

Tooth decay will not just go away, no matter how many products you see that claim to “reverse cavities” or “remineralize your teeth!” They must be treated to preserve your natural teeth. And a broken tooth will only open up your mouth to infection, leading to the need for a root canal and further dental work.
Straighter Teeth for The New Year
If your dental insurance covers orthodontics, now is the time to get them started. Invisalign trays can be ready to start before January: by next December, your smile will be straighter, healthier, and more beautiful!
