The best way to start the new school year, whether you are a student or a full-time worker, is by making sure you are in tip-top shape. One of the easiest ways to check up on your dental health is by visiting a qualified dentist in Westchester.
Here are three reasons you should come in for your checkup before the school rush takes over your life:
You Want to Make Sure Your Teeth and Gums are Healthy
Unhealthy teeth and gums are an easy reason to become unhappy – they look unattractive and can be painful and distracting. Problems like these can be fixed – or totally avoided – by getting a regular checkup. You can get back into school and work with renewed confidence.
Additionally, the beginning of the school year can become your perfect reminder every year that it’s time for a checkup! You should be seeing your Westchester dentist two to three times per year. It’s easy to forget these important checkups unless you associate them with other important events, like your birthday, holidays, or the beginning of the school year.
Get Cosmetic Dental Work Done for the School Year
School is a good reminder to invest in a straighter, more attractive smile with Invisalign, teeth whitening and other cosmetic dentistry options. It can be hard to find a good Westchester cosmetic dentist, but at Advanced Dentistry of Scarsdale, we are sure to invite self-confidence to get the year rolling.
Custom Mouthguards for Sports
If you play sports, this is a crucial time to consider getting a custom mouthguard. This is an important precaution for all athletes – regardless of age or ability. Get a mouthguard to protect your teeth, roots and the bone in your mouth from damage. This could prevent serious injuries too, like jaw fracture, cerebral hemorrhage, concussion and neck injuries. A small investment like a custom mouthguard sheds a lot of light on the saying “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
When looking for a mouthguard, please consider getting a custom mouthguard from your Westchester dentist. They can provide extra protection, are more comfortable and less distracting (which improves performance), and last a lot longer.
Whatever reason you may have to visit your dentist, doing at the beginning of the school year is definitely a smart way to go. Give us a call or stop by our office and schedule your appointment today!
