What are you looking forward to this summer? A big vacation outside the state? A family trip to the water park? Maybe… a visit to the dentist? It may be tempting to make your mid-year plans all about relaxation, but the season is also an excellent opportunity for a dental check-up. Here are some of the benefits of a summer appointment your family dentist in Columbian Square.
It Lets You Use Your Dental Insurance Benefits
We’re halfway through 2019 now, which means your current dental plan benefits are halfway to expiring. Many plans will mostly or fully cover regular preventive check-ups; it’s recommended to see the dentist twice annually, so if you haven’t had a visit yet, now would be an excellent time to make sure you take full advantage of your coverage this year.
It’s Easier to Make an Appointment for Kids and Teens
It can be tough to get away during the school year for a dental appointment. The long summer break provides an excellent opportunity for your kids to get the care they need without interrupting their studies. Plus, since kids are more likely to be relaxed during the summer, it can make for a more enjoyable visit.
It’s also a great opportunity for slightly older family members to have major dental work done, such as teens or young adults who might need their wisdom teeth removed. Not only will it be easier to schedule an appointment, but there’ll be plenty of time for recovery later.
Prepare Your Teeth for Summer Sugar
Kids and adults tend to load up on sugary snacks and drinks during summertime. Unfortunately, this encourages plaque buildup that can lead to tooth decay. By having a cleaning done now, you can reduce plaque levels before they become worse. In addition, if you or your kids have trouble brushing certain areas in the mouth, dental sealants can be applied for added protection.
Get Your Cleanings Done Sooner, Not Later
Remember, dental visits are vital in protecting you and your loved ones’ oral health. Not only is it the best way to thoroughly clean the mouth of plaque, but the dentist can also identify potential issues in their early stages, which can be the key for a successful diagnosis and treatment. If you’ve been putting off your family’s dental appointments, summer is an excellent opportunity, and it would be beneficial to take advantage of it.
