Yes, it’s going to be fall soon. The time we get clean our windows, draperies, carpets and ready our yards for winter. But, what about getting our teeth ready for all the foods and beverages we’re about to eat? It’s called preventive care and you can think of it as fall approaches for your teeth.
Taking Care of Our Teeth
When you think about it, you probably take better care of your car than your teeth. Every 3,000 miles you change the oil. Why not have your teeth professionally cleaned 3 times annually?
You know that if you let the oil in your car go for longer than you should, all that gunk will build up and cause engine problems. Imagine the painful cost of that! Well, it’s the same way with your teeth. If you allow plaque, which is gunk, to build up you are allowing harmful bacteria to infect your teeth and gums. Imagine what that would be like to try to improve two years down the road.
Why not make it a point to use Fall as one of your reminders for oral health care? Fall cleaning for preventive care will help you enjoy the months ahead. Tasty foods and beverages contain sugars and acids. These can be harmful to your teeth if not kept in check.
