It is true that many people find Thanksgiving a hassle. Whether you’re dealing with the stress of hosting and cooking for your guests, traveling, or simply organizing plans, it can be easy to lose sight of what Thanksgiving is truly about. Once you get past the stress of the day, remember to take a moment to reflect on what being thankful means and how we could all stand to appreciate the good things in our lives on a more regular basis. One of the easiest things to take for granted is your health, and your oral health, because you usually don’t notice it until it’s gone. As you think of all the things you are thankful for, remember to think of your health.
Your oral health should be no exception to your list of things you are thankful for. Remember this, and take the time to examine the state of your oral health and hygiene. If it has been a long time since your last dentist visit, or you have been experiencing any discomfort in your mouth, it’s time to schedule a check up. As you know, your teeth are important, and maintaining proper oral hygiene along with regular check ups will keep your your mouth healthy. Keep track of your oral health this year, and you will be able to be thankful for it again next year at Thanksgiving.
