Buy Your Smile Something Special
Think about giving yourself a special smile oral health present this year.

Or, if you have been thinking about a particular treatment from our team, such as teeth whitening, then now is certainly a wonderful moment to pick up the phone, call us, and set up a visit!
Give It The Gift Of Water!
When you’re at a holiday party or you’re simply enjoying Christmas morning, we encourage you to remember that drinking water is so very good for your oral health in so many ways (especially if you’re loading up on sweets and pastries). Let’s run through some reasons to remember to sip water throughout the day, after snacks, after meals, after dessert, and to drink it with meals:
- When you drink water, you hydrate your body, which helps hydrate your mouth. Then, you have sufficient saliva flow, which helps keep your mouth neutral and clean!
- When you drink water, you force bits of food, sugar, and other not-so-good stuff (like bacteria) off of your tissues.
- Water doesn’t cause any problems for your smile because it is neutral, so you can sip it to your heart’s content.
