December! It’s right after November and, ah yes: It’s the final month of the year, which means once this 12th month is over, we immediately find ourselves taking up residence in a brand new year! It’s a set of January through December all over again. While this can mean many different things, when the topic is your oral health, our Virginia Beach, VA team reminds you that this narrows down the focus a bit. What should you probably be squaring away at the moment, to feel certain December is full of all things beneficial for your grin, you ask? Allow your Virginia Beach dentist to illuminate the specifics!
One More Visit!
If you have made it all the way to December and you can say that you’ve only had one dental checkup and cleaning with your Virginia Beach dentist within the past 12 months, then we have a suggestion for you: Call us up to see if you can get one last preventive dental care visit in within the month of December or not long after! By doing so, you will be able to remain on track with prevention, which helps you stay the course in terms of optimal smile protection (and lets you know if you need any last-minute repairs).
An Honest Glance At The Year
It’s easy to take a look at the previous year and to say to yourself that you did a pretty good job (and to leave it at that). However, your Virginia Beach dentist suggests, instead, that you take a bit of time this December to take a very honest glance throughout the past year, as we get ready to embark upon a new one. Make note of everything you did right (so you can do it again) and everything you did wrong or not-quite-right (so you can do much better moving forward!).
Tidying Up Your Home Care
It seems very easy and like the type of thing you can do any time at all, so you may underestimate its importance. With that said, we remind you to tidy up your home care. What’s this mean? Well, it means that in order to prep for a shiny new year, it’s time to:
- Toss out old items
- Remove expired items from your dental hygiene collection
- Consider your dental care approach and make sure you get back on track with best practices!
