Why You Should Visit Your Dentist This Winter Season
General Dentistry Santa Rosa
Whatever your December festivities look like, Santa Rosa dentist Dr. Sullivan wants to make sure you keep your oral health a priority even during all the holiday hustle and bustle. This time of year is actually an ideal time to schedule one of your bi-annual dental check-ups and here are some reasons why!
Winter Travel Plans
If you plan on taking a winter vacation, coordinating one of your bi-annual dental visits with your trip will allow for you to voice any concerns you might have, and Dr. Sullivan can look for any signs of issues that could interrupt your get away. Not getting a check-up before your vacation can allow problems to go undiagnosed and lead to bigger, more complicated dental emergency that could ruin travel plans.
Flu Season is Here
If your body is busy fighting dental issues – even small cavities – your immune system can become compromised. Keeping up to date on regular dental visits and cleanings from Santa Rosa dentist Dr. Sullivan, will help ensure your immune system is ready to keep you healthy during this flu season. If you find yourself battling a sickness this season chances are you taking over the counter medicines or cough drops. These remedies commonly contain large amounts of high fructose corn syrup which can have very damaging effects on your tooth enamel. Make sure that part of your healing and recovery routine includes keeping your oral health a priority.
