6 Reasons to Thank Your Dentist on National Dentist Day

National Dentist Day

 

March 6th is National Dentist Day. From boosting your confidence to relieving your pain, here are six reasons to thank your dentist today!

  1. Help Maintain Your Good Oral Health
    Regular dental check-ups and cleanings lead to good oral health. When you have regular examinations, your dentist can provide advice that is specific to your needs. Make sure to follow your dentist’s instructions on how to maintain your oral health in between check-ups.
  2. Protect Your Teeth
    Your dentist has the tools and knowledge to help you keep your teeth strong and healthy. Ask your dentist how you can protect your teeth from acidic foods, stains, and wear down!
  3. Relieve Your Pain.
    When you have a toothache, your dentist is your first responder. Your dentist is trained to minimize any pain or discomfort. For that, we can say thank you.
  4. Prevent and spot early signs of gum disease and oral cancer
    Your dentist is trained to spot the early signs of gum disease and oral cancer before they spread. By scheduling regular dental check-ups and monitoring your oral health, you may be prolonging your life!
  5. Fix Your Smile
    Life happens, and sometimes that means something can happen to your smile like a knocked-out tooth. If you happen to lose a tooth, your dentist can still save it. Put the tooth in milk to give it calcium and keep it moist and get to your dentist within 30 minutes. Your dentist will be able to save your smile by either reinserting the tooth, or creating a prosthetic one. No matter which route is taken, your smile will remain bright and full thanks to your dentist!
  6. Boost Your Overall Confidence
    A brighter and healthier smile can lead to a huge confidence boost. It is said that in social interactions, the first place people look is the eyes, and then the teeth. This is why your dentist is the perfect person to give you a confidence boost. Your dentist can fix flaws like chipped, discolored, misshapen or missing teeth.

Happy National Dentist Day, and don’t forget to thank your dentist today for helping to maintain your beautiful smile!
