Christmas is a great time for family and friends, festive events and other such “merry and bright” activities. But with all the fun also come altered schedules and a break in routine, so a dent in “business as usual” due to dental concerns can really hamper an already packed calendar.
Which is why it is important to maintain your oral health checkups even amidst the clutter, and take advantage of your dental plan before it runs out at years end.
Benefits of a Christmas Checkup
The happenings within the holidays is a lot – we understand, so squeezing in a dental appointment amidst the hustle and bustle is just one added “chore” to squeeze onto the list. But by carving out an hour before the end of December in order to have your teeth checked, could mean the difference between an interrupted Christmas dinner vs. a healthy smile throughout all the festivities. Plus, you can save a whole lot of time and money by visiting one of our many DentistsRUs dental offices for a quick and convenient checkup and cleaning during a time most people don’t capitalize on.
Additional Health Tips for the Holidays
In addition to ensuring your smile is healthy, don’t forget to breathe! Holding your breath puts your body into a position of stress, and although you may not be consciously holding your breath, it is important to be conscious of your breathing to ensure you are keeping your breath at a calm and consistent level to minimize stress and maximize enjoyment.
Moderation is also key. Although this is a popular time to let loose, it is important to keep tabs on what your eating, when you’re resting, and how many additional activities your putting on you and your kids’ to-do lists. Maintaining a fairly normal schedule will help to better prevent anyone from getting ill, and keep you mentally and physically healthy for the holidays.
