When it comes to protecting your teeth from damage, it relies on preventive care. You brush your teeth twice a day and floss daily to help ward off complications, like tooth decay and gum disease, but is it enough? No. You also need to see your dentist in Washington D.C. twice a year for a cleaning and checkup. Unfortunately, only one-third of adults scheduled an appointment last year, often due to a misunderstanding regarding the importance of regular care. If you do not schedule a visit twice a year, you are allowing preventable issues to damage your smile.

The clock is winding down on 2016, and we’d like to encourage you to put one other thing on your holiday shopping list. A visit to the dentist! If you have dental insurance but haven’t used all your benefits for the year, you should know that they will expire when the ball drops on New Year’s Eve. That means you’ll have to reach your deductible all over again to receive discounts in 2017.

Whether you’re feeling good, bad, or just ok, did you know your mood can have a significant impact on your health? Like your teeth. When you’re stressed out, you are more likely to grind them and clench your jaw. The human jaw can exert up to 275 pounds, and possibly more. And that pressure and strain can lead to a whole slew of potential health problems. Weak and worn teeth that occur from clenching and grinding are more susceptible to decay. That’s because you grind away the protective layer of enamel with all that activity in your jaw — so your teeth are more sensitive, too.
