Dental Health During The Holidays

virtual dentistry in jacksonville fl Are you ready for the holidays? What about your smile? Dr. Alexander offers some advice below on how to properly care for your dental health during the holiday season.

Make Time For The Dentist

The holidays may look a little different this year. Whether you are making a meal for your close family or you are scheduling a long-distance video call with old friends, make sure your smile remains healthy and beautiful. Your smile is one of the first things people notice when they see you. The best way to take care of it is to make time to see a dentist a least once every six months. That means that if it has been over six months since the last time you’ve sat in the dental chair, now is the perfect time to schedule your appointment before your calendar gets any fuller.

Use Your Insurance Benefits

It’s important to see your dentist always, but especially as the year ends. Most patients forget that they have unused dental insurance benefits once the holidays roll around. Don’t forget to use them before you lose them. Alexander Dentistry accepts most insurance plans and will gladly process your claim. Please bring the necessary information with you on your first visit. We participate with Florida Combine Life Blue Dental Choice/Choice Plus (PPO) and Delta Dental Premier (PPO). For all other dental insurance plans, our staff will take care of the billing so that you receive reimbursement directly from the insurance company.

Consider Cosmetic Dentistry

It has been a very long year. If your smile has suffered some cosmetic damages, come see us for a cosmetic dentistry consultation. We can offer solutions to restore your smile. This time of year, many patients come to see us for teeth whitening services. Dr. Alexander offers professional teeth whitening in Jacksonville, FL. One of the most popular procedures in cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening is a quick, effective, and relatively inexpensive way to improve the appearance of your smile, either before or after the holiday season. Some prefer to schedule before the holidays arrive so that they can look their best in family photos. Others may benefit from scheduling a whitening appointment in the new year to revitalize their smile after enjoying holiday favorites like red wine, hot cocoa, or blueberry pie. Beware that holiday favorites like these foods and beverages often contain staining agents that will dull your smile if allowed to remain on your dental structures.
