As the holiday season ramps up, it is easy to find ourselves too busy to take care of our smiles. Long parties, family celebrations, and time spent running countless errands takes away from the time you should spend on yourself and your health. As a dentist San Mateo community members use for their oral health and dental implant needs, it is worth knowing why setting aside time for yourself is important.
When you take the time to care for your own needs, you can improve your self-confidence. Poor oral hygiene results in bad breath and tooth decay. Rotting teeth can lead to them falling out and halitosis will make you self-conscience. In less than 10 minutes every day, you can improve your oral health with proper brushing and flossing techniques and keep your smile looking great, ready to face the world. A quick dental exam with our San Mateo dentist can also keep your oral health in good condition.
Improved Oral Health = Improved Overall Health
Our San Mateo dentist often fills cavities and checks your teeth, but did you know our office also specializes in dental implants? A dental implant may be necessary as part of a cosmetic dentistry service or necessary to restore your smile when a tooth needs to be replaced. We are trained to evaluate these complex problems and place dental implants. When your smile is restored, the overall health of your body feels the benefits, as well. Bacteria no longer have a place to hide and you reduce your risk of infections when a dental implant is used to replace a permanent tooth.

Call our office to schedule your dental checkup with our San Mateo dentist before your fun festivities start. You’ll be able to spend more time with family and friends and you won’t have worry about interrupting your plans.
