Mothers, fathers, and even secretaries get a special day so people can take a little extra time to say, “Thank you,” for everything that they do. Did you know dentists get a day as well? March 6th is actually National Dentist Day, and to mark the occasion, we are going to share 10 reasons why you should appreciate and thank your dentist in Bergenfield at Washington Dental Associates.
1. They Relieve Your Pain
Whether it is a simple toothache or a traumatic oral injury, your dentist takes the pain away with a smile. They help you right when you need it the most.
2. They Take Away Your Fear
So many people avoid going to the dentist because of dental anxiety. Your dentist is well aware of this, which is why they make their office as welcoming as possible, take the time to answer all of your questions, and always choose the least invasive treatment possible.
3. They Take Care of Your Littlest Smiles
They help your kids understand why taking care of their teeth is so important, and motivate them to establish basic habits that will keep their smile healthy as they continue to grow and change.
4. They Stop Problems Before They Even Start
Standard check-ups are one of the most important tools in dentistry, and they allow your doctor to prevent cavities, gum disease, and even oral cancer before they can really impact your health.
5. They Help Expecting Mothers
Pregnancy can be overwhelming for anyone, but your dentist gives mothers one less thing to worry about by taking care of their teeth and letting them know exactly what they need to do for the next 9 months and beyond.
6. They Give You Nutrition Tips
Your diet is an important part of taking care of your teeth, and your dentist knows exactly which foods are best to keep your smile bright, as well as those you should avoid. Ask about it at your next appointment, the answers just might surprise you!
7. They Make Your Smile Shine
Your dentist can make your smile more beautiful in just about every way you can imagine. They can make your teeth straighter, fix cracks and chips, and even make healthy teeth look better than ever before.
8. They Take Care of the Elderly
As people grow older, their dental needs change. They often need to have teeth replaced, and may have existing dental work your dentist needs to work around. This is no problem for your doctor, and they help people smile confidently throughout their golden years.
9. They Keep Your Mouth Healthy
Often, your oral health is a big indicator of your overall health, which is why keeping your teeth and gums healthy is always a dentist’s top priority. Those twice a year check-ups and cleanings can really make a big difference!
10. They Give You A Plan
If your teeth are perfectly healthy or need a little help, your dentist can come up with a plan to take care of them so that you’ll be able to smile without worry.
