Dental Health During The Holidays

Preventative dental care in nixa moYour dental health is important, especially during the holiday season. Nixa, MO family dentist office of Dr. Jacob McLauchlin offers some advice below on how to care for your dental health during the upcoming months:

Consider Cosmetic Dentistry

The holidays may be a little strange this year. Whether you are attending a small family dinner or you are scheduling a Zoom call with old friends, your smile is still the first thing people will notice about you. It’s important to feel confident about your smile, and ready to show it off. If you have been finding yourself hiding your smile, consider scheduling a cosmetic consultation with Dr. McLauchlin. He offers a wide range of cosmetic dentistry services to help you get ready for the holiday season. Some cosmetic dentistry services include:

  • Teeth Whitening
  • Porcelain Veneers
  • Dental Crowns
  • Tooth-Colored Fillings
  • Invisalign

Cosmetic dentistry allows our team to address concerns like missing teeth, misaligned teeth, broken teeth, and even discolored teeth. During your cosmetic consultation, Dr. McLauchlin will evaluate your smile, address your concerns, and offer you a personalized treatment plan designed specifically for you.

Stop Snoring Today

It has been a very long year. The holidays are a great time to catch up on your rest. However, some patients may struggle to do so due to their obstructive sleep apnea. Now is as good of a time as any to address your obstructive sleep apnea with a professional like Dr. McLauchlin.

Common signs that you may have sleep apnea or a sleep disorder can include:

  • Snoring
  • Feeling tired and groggy when waking or throughout the day
  • Irritability, moodiness
  • Dry mouth, sore throat and/or persistent bad breath in the morning

If you experience any of these symptoms, schedule an appointment with MAC Dental today. We can help you manage your symptoms and get the good night’s rest that you deserve.

Remember To Brush & Floss

This time of year is especially busy. With gifts to wrap and dinners to plan, it’s important that we remind our patients to take care of themselves too. Your at-home oral hygiene routine is your smile’s first line of defense when it comes to preventing costly dental concerns down the road. Brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day. Additionally, make sure to schedule your preventative care appointment before the new year. Our office recommends seeing a dentist once every six months. If it has been over six months since you sat in the dental chair, go ahead and schedule your appointment today.

We hope everyone enjoys a safe and fun holiday season this year. Come see us soon!
