If one of your most favorite things about holiday time is the downtown fun you can expect from our very own Conroe, TX community, then it is high time you begin preparing for the upcoming fun! Get into the Christmas spirit nice and early with this year’s Tree Lighting Ceremony and Christmas On Main Street before December even begins!
We know that it’s very easy to fall into some black-and-white thinking in regard to your dental care if you haven’t been doing such a great job or if you think you’ve been performing your smile care wonderfully but you still end up with problems. You may tend to think of yourself either as a “good” patient if your smile is healthy or as a “bad” patient if your smile is not in perfect condition. Our Conroe, TX team would like to remind you that this is not a very healthy way to look at your oral health! It can cause you to feel stressed or disappointed when the only emotions you really want to experience in regard to your smile are positive ones! Let’s help you better understand why needing anything more than a checkup and cleaning is not something that should cause you any upset!
What you may not realize about enjoying any type of dessert, be it candy, cookies, cake, or anything else packed with sugar is that sugar on its own isn’t some sort of smile-damaging evil dessert. The problem? It’s with how long your smile is in contact with those sugars. Why is that, you ask? Well, because damage, such as tooth decay, takes place when bacteria eat the sugar that’s left in your mouth after you swallow your dessert, they digest it, acids exit their systems and land on your teeth, and you end up with what you might call an “acid attack” against your teeth! When you limit exposure, you don’t give bacteria time to feast, you stop the acid attack from happening, and you protect your oral health. So, how to limit this exposure, you ask our Conroe, TX team? Why, we never thought you’d ask!
There are some things that you already know you should be careful about when it comes to our upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. You know that you shouldn’t eat anything too hard because it can crack your teeth! You know that any amount of candy or pastries is going to mean a sugar-bath for your smile, which encourages decay. Fortunately, you’re all geared up for smile protection! However, on the flip side of things, you may find yourself asking: Is the star of this show safe for your dental health? Is choosing to add a slice or two of turkey to your plate going to be a wise selection or are there things you’re not considering? Let our Conroe, TX team offer you some enlightening information about eating turkey that you just might not know but that will serve your smile well.
One thing you want to do this holiday season is smile and relax. You want to give gifts and see others’ faces light up as they open them! Of course, receiving a gift or two for yourself wouldn’t be too bad, either! What you would really love to avoid? Ending up with stains that you end up needing to take care of with cosmetic care once this festive and lovely season is all over. So, what should you be doing to protect your teeth, so they can remain nice and bright now and well into next year and beyond? Our Conroe, TX practice is ready with simple suggestions that will keep those teeth looking spotless!
Of course, if you’ve been in our Conroe, TX community for long, you know all about bobbing for pumpkins (and you probably look forward to this autumn event every year). If not, why then are you in for a treat! The Pumpkin Bobbing in 2018 is just around the corner, so don’t delay! Gather up your kiddos and get ready for some truly adorable fun!
You don’t want to have to call us to let us know you have a dental emergency and need to see us, of course. While we certainly welcome hearing from you and will see you as soon as possible, should the need arise, we have a feeling what you’d really prefer is to have some insight that will let you side-step potential trauma, so your smile stays healthy without any upset or urgent need for care. Fortunately, our Conroe, TX team is quite experienced in all things smile-related and can quickly offer you up some easy reminders for October to keep your smile safe.
There are going to be some obstacles that you come up against if you decide that rather than selecting professional teeth whitening with us (or even from the drugstore, which we do not recommend), you decide to try some do it yourself (DIY) ideas. Maybe you figure if you would just make your dental hygiene better or try out some things you’ve heard about, you could end up with a much lovelier, snowy looking smile. However, those obstacles we just mentioned are quite real. Curious about what the problem might be, since you are so sure you can whip up a whitening solution on your own at home? Our Conroe, TX team is happy to explain why this isn’t your best bet.
Of course, the reason you have been spending a bit of time thinking about cosmetic care is due to the fact that you aren’t overwhelmingly thrilled with how your smile looks. It could look better and a solid, trustworthy pathway that can get you there sounds so fantastic! However, the reality of getting ready for cosmetic improvements and actually getting the process started is where you get hung up. What should you be doing at home? How should you go about kick starting this adventure? Our Conroe, TX team can quickly answer these questions (and more if you call), so get ready for a surprisingly easy process!
What should you be doing right this second, if not checking out plane tickets, figuring out which relatives are heading where, deciding how you’re going to get from Halloween through New Year’s without stress, and all while you live in the present moment? Well, if you ask our Conroe, TX team, we think you just might want to tack one extra detail onto that growing list of yours (we promise it will actually make your holidays easier once they show up): Consider some important things to get moving on for your smile care, so you don’t have to add “call the dentist” to your calendar when it’s time to simply enjoy yourself!
